Domes have also filled the crater of Mt. Pelee, Martinique, and many other volcanoes. The eruption of Mount Unzen, Japan taught volcanologists a valuable lesson -- that the collapse of an active dome can cause pyroclastic flows to develop. From 1991 to 1995, the continued growth and partial collapse of the Mount Unzen dome initiated hundreds of small but highly destructive pyroclastic flows and surges.
Doing social volcanology: exploring volcanic
Social volcanology refers to the integration of social science research methods into the traditionally physical domain of volcanology. This emerging multi-methodological research area draws from many disciplines in order to examine hazard-mitigation strategies that are community focused. A key facet of social volcanology is the role of culture and this paper explores the inuence of traditional cultural values in relation to the 2006 volcanic crisis at Mt Merapi (Java).

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.

KIBBUTZ YASUR, Israel — For much of Israel’s existence, the kibbutz embodied its highest ideals: collective labor, love of the land and a no-frills egalitarianism. But starting in the 1980s, when socialism was on a global downward spiral and the country was mired in hyperinflation, Israel’s 250 or so kibbutzim seemed doomed. Their debt mounted and their group dining halls grew empty as the young moved away.

“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.
Mount St. Helens: 30 years of learning about geology, ecology, and human dimensions. The eruption of Mount St. Helens on May 18, 1980, was a globally-transformative event for volcanology, ecosystem science, and human engagement with volcanoes. ... In the human dimension, Mount St. Helens displaced, impoverished, and killed many people; but she has also inspired many – from grade school children to seasoned mountain scientists, poets, and philosophers.

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.

The largest volcanic eruptions on Earth | QUT ePrints
At present, durations for the large-magnitude silicic eruptions are unconstrained; at discharge rates of 109 kg s?1, equivalent to the peak of the 1991 Mt Pinatubo eruption, the largest silicic eruptions would take many months to evacuate N5000 km3 of magma. The generally simple deposit structure is more suggestive of short-duration (hours to days) and high intensity (~1011 kg s?1) eruptions, perhaps with hiatuses in some cases.
