Volcanic Eruptions and Hazards:
What is a volcano?
A volcano is a vent or 'chimney' that connects molten rock (magma) from within the Earth’s crust to the Earth's surface. The volcano includes the surrounding cone of erupted material.
At the Earth's surface, earthquakes manifest themselves by shaking and sometimes displacement of the ground. When the epicenter of a large earthquake is located offshore, the seabed may be displaced sufficiently to cause a tsunami. Earthquakes can also trigger landslides, and occasionally volcanic activity

Volcanic eruptions are awesome and destructive; however, this natural phenomenon
is beneficial in the long term. One of the earliest known written records
of a natural disaster concerned the eruption of Pompeii in A.D. 79, and was
recorded by Pliny the Younger in his letters to the historian Tacitus (Jashemski,
1979). Volcanic eruptions, ranging in intensity and numbering between 17 and
27 per year during the past decade (Bullard, 1984), continue to remind us of
their potential impacts on the environment.

Có 50 đến 60 núi lửa phun (volcanoes erupt) mỗi năm trên toàn thế giới. Ở Mỹ có từ 2
đến 3 vụ phun (núi lửa) mỗi năm, chủ yếu là ở Alaska. Những vụ phun này thường
xảy ra ở những vùng dân cư thưa thớt của thế giới nhưng khi mà một trong số đó xảy
ra ở vùng dân cư đông đúc thì hậu quả sẽ rất thảm khốc. Trong 100 năm qua đã có
khoảng 100.000 người chết bởi các vụ phun núi lửa trong đó chỉ trong thập niên 1980
đã có 285.00 người chết....
By the time you have reached the end of this tutorial you will be
able to construct a series of linked web pages for any subject that
includes formatted text, pictures, and hypertext links to other
web pages on the Internet. If you follow the steps for the Basic
Level (lessons 1-14) you will develop a page about volcanoes
and if you go on to the Advanced Level (lessons 15-29), you will
create an enhanced volcano web site.
Từ "volcano" (núi lửa) xuất phát do đâu?
Từ núi lửa bắt nguồn từ tên "Vulcan" – tên vị thần lửa trong thần thoại La Mã.
Núi lửa nào là lớn nhất?
Núi lửa Mauna Loa ở Hawaii giành danh hiệu này trên Trái Đất. Nó có thể tích vào
khoảng 40.000km3, đường kính chân là khoảng 12km. Nó vươn tới độ cao 4.170m, và
cao khoảng 9km nếu tính từ chân núi nằm dưới đáy biển lên đến ngọn. Tuy nhiên kỷ
lục này được xem là khiêm tốn so với ngọn núi Olympus Mons trên Sao Hoả.

Hydrocarbons provide our core energy resource. Information on their origin, properties and phase behavior is interesting from the point of view of physical chemistry. At the same time this information is of great value to the oil and gas industry. The book "Hydrocarbon" is comprised of 9 chapters, covering different topics: from origin of hydrocarbons to the method for hydrocarbon exploration. Distribution of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in soil and their influence to environment are also discussed....
The municipal and industrial activities of the man affects human health, leads to
degradation of the environment and even degradation of the objects built by himself or
his predecessors. The pollutants are emitted to the atmosphere with off-gases from
industry, power stations, residential heating systems and vehicles, some additional
emissions come from the natural sources as volcanoes as well. Fossil fuels, which include
coal, natural gas, petroleum, shale oil and bitumen are the main source of heat, electrical
energy and are the basic duels for the engines of the transport vehicles....
