Interviews with Volcanologists
What interested you in volcanology? Well, I was working for the U.S.G.S. in Tacoma, Washington at an office devoted to studying glaciers when Mt. St. Helens erupted in May 1980. Up until then, I had absolutely no idea that I ever wanted to be a volcanologist, but the eruption of Mt. ... One of the best would be Mount Erebus, that first time that I looked down and saw molten lava.

Mt. Erebus by Kimberly Stineburg Physical Geology Spring 2008 Mount Erebus and Her Crystals. ... Mt. Erebus is famous for its persistent but low-level activity as the world’s southernmost active volcano. But in 2006, it threw one of its biggest recorded tantrums during its last 165 years. Erebus erupted as much as six times a day, throwing what volcanologists call “bombs,” hot rocks, out of the crater and onto the sides of the 3,794-meter-high volcano.
Mt. Erebus, Then and Now — Earth's Changing Surface...
The ever-present plume from Mt. Erebus appeared in the background of my photos and caused me to question what I’d learned about volcanoes. It was December 2003, and I was a teacher who was fortunate to be at McMurdo Station, on Ross Island, Antarctica, at the same time as two volcanologists who were happy to answer my questions. Now, almost five years later, one of those volcanologists, Hubert Staudigel from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, has returned to Antarctica with a different purpose.

Mountains: Face of the Earth
Volcanism causes mountains to form. Examples of mountains formed by periodically dangerous volcanic action are Mount Ranier and Mount Saint Helens in the United States, Mount Erebus in Antarctica, Mount Vesuvius in Italy, and Mount Fuji in Japan. Many of these volcanic mountains have summit craters that still emit steam and debris; others that no longer show signs of volcanic activity may only be dormant, not extinct.

Except for the volcanic region around Naples, farming in southern Italy is exceedingly difficult because limestone forms the basement rock and the soil is generally quite poor. But the region around Naples, which includes Mount Vesuvius, is very rich mainly because of two large eruptions 35,000 and 12000 years ago that left the region blanketed with very thick deposits of tephra which has since weathered to rich soils.

We exploit this idea using Coda Wave Interferometry to monitor temporal changes at Mount Erebus Volcano, Antarctica. Erebus is one of the few volcanoes on Earth with a long – lived convecting lava lake.

Volcanologists rely on first-hand observations of volcanic eruptions to gain insights into how volcanoes work. Often these observations are made by individuals who are not trained scientists but who just happen to be in the right place at the right time. A good example of this is a series of letters that Pliny the Younger wrote describing the 79 AD eruption of Vesuvus and the death of his uncle, Pliny the Elder.

According to Hesiod, Gaia was the first being to be born of Chaos. She was then followed by her siblings Erebus, Nyx, Eros, and Tartarus. Apparently born pregnant, Gaia gave birth to Uranus, Ourea (the mountains), and Pontus (the sea) parthenogenetically (without the help of a male). Surrounded by the sea, Gaia may best be thought of as a large, pregnant belly, upon which we dwell.

Chapter 10 Section 5
Mt. Erebus in Antarctica is another nonexplosive volcano that is frequently in eruption. Because of its high altitude (~4km) and location in Antarctica, Erebus has been frequently cited as a possible source for the chlorine that is active in formation of the Antarctic ozone hole. However, its eruption plumes are generally confined to altitudes of about a half a kilometer above the volcano and are thus entirely in the troposphere.

PROGRAM OUTLINE. Description: Ice Worlds explores the Earth's polar icecaps and draws parallels with ice on planets and moons elsewhere in the Solar System. The film shows flights over the Antarctic Peninsula, the Ross Sea and Mount Erebus. Paleoclimate data and seafloor depth are used to show how the coastline of the British Isles has changed since the last ice age.

“These eruptions sometimes change the direction of society,” Clague says. “The ultimate goal in volcanology is to understand how volcanoes work, so we can predict their behavior better to know when to evacuate on land.” One of the biggest questions in explosive eruptions—like the one that blew up Mount St. Helens in 1980—is how the newly erupted lava shatters into pieces. During eruptions above water, lava rocks grind each other up and gases in the magma quickly escape, destroying evidence of these violent formative stages.

A number of factors can lead to hydrothermal reservoir pressures increasing, to the point where they can explode. This is termed a “phreatic” eruption. In the coming days, I expect volcanologists to look at samples from the eruption of Ontake-san, to look for any sign that fresh magma was involved. I suspect that they won’t find any. The absence of precursors and the apparent steam-heavy plume produced by the eruption seem to indicate that Mt.
