Volcanos in Hawaii(local)

This is the map shows the distribution of volcanos in Hawaii, where the red dot represent

the volcano. First of all, Hawaii has one of the oldest and the most active volcano in the world.

Not so long ago, Kilauea volcano just erupted in may this year. Because of the eruption, over 600

family is affected and properties is damaged. Nevertheless, the largerest freshwater lake, green

lake is vaporized because of the lava ran into the lake. lastly, the eruption of Kilauea volcano has

brought disaster to Vacationland and it would quite a long time to recover. This is the

consequence of the volcanic eruption. We will continue discussion the distrubuion of Volcanos

in United States.

Volcanos in United States (Reginal)

This is the maps shows the distribution of volcanos in the United States area. According

to AGI, there are total about 169 volcanos in the United States is still active, and there may be

some volcanos is not yet exposed. Yet, some scientist mentions that if the yellow stone volcanos

erupt, human may become extinct. Nevertheless however, we could tell that most of the volcanos

are distributed along the land from this map. We could make a hypothesis from this point, is all

volcanos are distributed along the land? We will continue discussion it in next map.

Volcanos in the world (Global)

This map shows the distribution of volcanos in the world. Continued discuss the

hypotheses, is all volcanos are distributed along the land? Now, the answer to the question is

obviously “No” because there are some volcanos in the middle of the ocean. Yet, there is a zone

called “Ring of Fire” where it has most active volcanos on earth. If all volcanos erupt at the same

time, all land and ocean would be coved up with lava and ash, as a result, all lives would become

extinct. Since eruption of volcano is natural hazard, we can not do much to prevent it from

happening, but we could prevent it from damaging more properties and lives. Such as,

1. Prepare safety supplies at home.

2. Avoid heading to valley area.
