Please respond to the following with 150-200 words. No plagiarism and if possible, use a similar reference. GEO 215 According to the text Berman & Renwick, 2011, thousands of volcanoes stand dormant many volcanoes are inactive, but with the potential to erupt at any time around the world. Many volcanic eruptions occur under water. About 600 are actively spewing lava, ash, and gas some daily but they rarely cause damage or destruction to earth. Others, however, have not erupted in hundreds of years, so people have settled nearby. In some areas earthquake watch centers provide warnings of volcanic eruptions (Berman & Renwick, 2011). But when warnings are not available, the danger can be great. The 1985 eruption of Nevado del Ruiz, in Colombia, triggered giant mudslides that buried most of a town, killing 23,000 people. In general, predicting volcanic eruptions is more accurate than predicting earthquakes, because volcanoes give many warnings before erupting. Eruptions of composite cone volcanoes have killed tens of thousands of people at a time, but such disasters are much less frequent than severe earthquakes (Berman & Renwick, 2011). One of the greatest volcanic explosions in recorded history was the 1883 eruption of the island of Krakatau in present-day Indonesia. Two-thirds of the island was destroyed, and the event killed about 36,000 people, most of who died in a flood triggered by the eruption. Ash discharged into the atmosphere by Krakatau significantly blocked sunlight and caused noticeable cooling of Earth's climate for a couple of years. Bergman, E. F., & Renwick, W. H. (2011).
