Lecture 16: March 8, 2016 Volcanoes Explanations – Supernatural forces, assigning nature a personality. o Greco-Roman – Volcan (God of Fire) o Iceland – Surtr o New Zealand – love triangle o Hawaii – Pele o Kamchatka – Kurkh (Great Raven) o Pacific Northwest – Bridge of Gods Rational Explanations o Greece and Roman Empedocles – world divided into four elements Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. Plato – an underground river of fire feeds all volcanoes. Aristotle – earth full of underground passages where wind blows through. Volcanoes fed by fire caused by narrow friction of the wind when it flows through narrow passages. Ovid – fire fed by fatty foods, when food used up eruptions stop. o Later European Views Volcanoes are entrance to hell. Agricola – vapor under pressure cause eruptions Volcanoes caused by combustion of various materials/rocks. Kepler – volcanoes are conduits for the tears and excrement ? Volcanoes have had positives and negatives for people, both in ancient times and today. ? Explanations for volcanic activity include: Love triangles between giants and supernatural beings. Winds traveled through underground caverns. Tempered Gods. ? Volcanic eruptions can impact areas far from the volcano. ? Volcanic Activity has been linked to: Mass migration of people. Myths of Atlantis. Crop failures. The writing of Frankenstein. Lecture 17: March 10, 2016 Magma – molten rock below the surface of the earth. Lava – molten rock that has reached the surface of the earth and is either still molten or solidified. Tephra – fragments of material produced during a volcanic eruption – ash, lapilli, and bombs. Angle of Repose – the angle at which material will stay composed. Types of Volcanoes and Shapes: Cinder Cone – material (tephra) erupts and piles around central vent – 25-35 degrees. Stratovolcano (Composite) – made up alternating layers of tephra/lava – 30- 35 degrees. Shield Volcano – all lava flows that build up volcano – 10-20 degrees. Fissure – no central vent – dike. ? The steepest angle at which granular material comes to a stable rest is its angle of repose. ? The type of volcano that is most dependent on the angle of repose for its shape is a cinder cone. ? A shield volcano has the gentlest slope. Caldera – most typically stratovolcano – volcano erupts so much material that it collapses in on itself. Aniakchak Caldera, Alaska Crater Lake, Oregon Katmai Caldera, Alaska Aso Volcano, Japan ? Calderas can form at either a shield or stratovolcano. Lava Dome – lots of lava erupts and cools in place at top of volcano. Tuya (Subglacial Volcano) – lava hits meltwater and lava shatters. Where do Volcanoes occur? Oceanic-Oceanic – typically Stratovolcanoes, can be shield. Oceanic-Continental – mostly large stratovolcano, but can get all types. Mid-Ocean Ridge – fissure eruptions. Continental Rift – fissure eruptions, can possibly have cinder cones, shield, or stratovolcano. Hot Spot – fissure or shield volcanoes. Flood Basalts/Large Igneous Provinces – fissure eruptions. ? Transform Margins are not associated with volcanoes.
