Volcanic eruptions are often viewed as a threat. This is especially true if the volcano is near a populated area where hazards that may come from rushing lava, explosively expelled materials, high volume of falling ash, and other volcanic debris flows, pose a great danger to people, property, and agriculture. Volcanoes erupt differently depending on the composition of the magma beneath the surface, the amount of gas in the magma, and the type of vent from which it erupts.In general, more viscous and stiffer lava causes more explosive eruptive activity. During explosive eruptions, the lava erupted is distorted into pieces of different shapes, forming different fragmental or pyroclastic materials depending on the physical state of the lava and on the force of the explosions. Explosive eruptions can eject a large amount of material into the air. Nonexplosive eruptions produce lava flows an
