28What are the differences between a tsunami and a ocean wave HeightBreadthWhat it can carryOrigin (ocean waves are generated by wind)
29Climate change from a volcanic eruption? Ash put into upper atmosphereAsh blocks sunLess heat lowers temperatureSnow does not melt, glaciers grow
30Where do volcanoes come from? Occur nearDiverging BoundariesConverging BoundariesHot SpotsThere must be a source of magma to draw from in order to create a volcano
31What is the difference between magma and lava? AnsMagma is molten rock in earth, lava is molten rock on earth
32What is the difference between a crater and a caldera? AnsCaldera are much wider across, caused by the collapse of the mountain when its magma chamber is emptied through eruptionCrater is the smaller depression created around the vent opening on the volcano
33Volcano that is most dangerous to humans Composite volcano
34Where and under what conditions do diamonds form?
35What is the difference in silica content and viscosity between light-colored and dark-colored magma?
37Why are composite volcanoes so much more dangerous than shield volcanoes?

42If a steep 12,000 ft high mountain is built up of sediments that contain both lava and ash dominated layers would most likely be classified as a _____________ volcano.
43Can the eruption of a single volcano affect the ecosystems of the entire world? Explain your answer.
44List at least 5 different dangers that a person living on the shoreline in Seattle, Washington could be subjected to if Mt. Ranier has a major eruption?
45What must be true about the inside of the moon for it to be volcanically active and produce large eruptions
46How would an eruption on the moon differ from a earth-based eruption.?
47The molten mixture of rock-forming substances, gases, and water deep in Earth’s mantle is called ____________________.
48The more ____________________ that magma contains, the thicker the magma is.
49A(n) ____________________ is a wide, gently sloping mountain made of hardened layers of low-silica lava.
50True or false____________ 9. A caldera is a weak spot in the crust where magma comes through.____________ 10. Liquid magma flows upward through the crust because it is less dense than the solid material around it.____________ 11. Pahoehoe and aa are produced during explosive eruptions.____________ 12. A hot spring is hot water and steam that erupts from the ground.____________ 13. When the top of a volcanic mountain collapses, a crater forms.____________ 14. A batholith is a mass of rock that formed when a large body of magma cooled inside Earth’s crust.
51Inside a volcano, magma collects in a pocket called a a. pipe.b. caldera.c. vent.d. magma chamber
52Which is not a physical property of magma from an explosive eruption? a. thick and stickyb. high viscosityc. flows easilyd. high in silica
53Volcanic soils are fertile because they contain a. silica.b. sulfur and liquid nitrogen.c. basalt.d. potassium and phosphorus.
54Layers of thin, runny lava that flow over a wide area before they cool and harden can build up aa. lava plateau.b. cinder cone volcano.c. composite volcano.d. volcanic neck.
55Explain why ash, cinders, and bombs are produced only in explosive eruptions, not in quiet eruptions.
57The most recent earthquake in Yellowstone National Park changed the volcanic activity there. Some geysers now erupt at different intervals than they did before. A few geysers have stopped erupting, and some new geysers have formed. Explain what might have happened during the earthquake to change the geyser activity.
