Air Resources Laboratory -
The Air Resources Laboratory, conducts research on processes that relate to air quality and climate, concentrating on the transport, dispersion, transformation, and removal of trace gases and aerosols, their climatic and ecological influences, and exchange between the atmosphere and biological and non-biological surfaces. The time frame of interest ranges from minutes and hours to that of the global climate. Research in all of these areas involves physical and numerical studies, leading to the development of air quality simulation models. ARL provides scientific and technical advice to elements of NOAA and other Government agencies on atmospheric science, environmental problems, emergency assistance, and climate change.
Alaska Volcano Observatory
The Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) is a joint program of the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the Geophysical Institute of the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAFGI), and the State of Alaska Division of Geological and Geophysical Surveys (ADGGS). AVO was formed in 1988, and uses federal, state, and university resources to monitor and study Alaska's hazardous volcanoes, to predict and record eruptive activity, and to mitigate volcanic hazards to life and property.
Alaska Volcanoes -
Alaska contains more than 40 active volcanoes, many of which have erupted violently and repeatedly over the past 200 years. Alaska also boasts the largest eruption on the planet in the last 100 years: the Katmai eruption of 1912 which formed the famous Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes, now part of Katmai National Park and Preserve.
America's Volcanic Past -
Though few people in the United States may actually experience an erupting volcano, the evidence for earlier volcanism is preserved in many rocks of North America. Features seen in volcanic rocks only hours old are also present in ancient volcanic rocks, both at the surface and buried beneath younger deposits. A thick ash deposit sandwiched between layer of sandstone in Nebraska, the massive granite peaks of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, and a variety of volcanic layers found in eastern Maine are but a few of the striking clues of past volcanism. With this perspective, an erupting volcano is not only an exciting and awesome spectacle in its own right but a window into a natural process that has happened over and over again throughout Earth's history. -- From: Brantley, 1994

Electronic Volcano -
The Electronic Volcano is a window into the world of information on active volcanoes. From here you can find many types of materials on active volcanoes worldwide, such as maps, photographs and full texts of dissertations and a few elusive documents. The Electronic Volcano will guide you to resources in libraries or resources on other information servers.

Hawaii Volcanoes -
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, established in 1916, displays the results of 70 million years of volcanism, migration, and evolution processes that thrust a bare land from the sea and clothed it with complex and unique ecosystems and a distinct human culture.
How Volcanoes Work -
This website is an educational resource that describes the science behind volcanoes and volcanic processes. The site is sponsored by NASA under the auspices of Project ALERT (Augmented Learning Environment and Renewable Teaching).

Martian Volcanoes -
Mars is only about one-half the size of Earth and yet has several volcanoes that surpass the scale of the largest terrestrial volcanoes.
Mount St. Helens National Monument Hiking -
Courtesy of the Blue Heron Inn. There are many trails on the east side of Mount St. Helens, leading hikers into the heart of the blast area. They provide outstanding views of the new lava dome. The south side of Mount St. Helens provides outstanding opportunities to discover the ancient lava flows and recent mudflows that scoured down the slopes of Mount St. Helens. Trails on the west side of Mount St. Helens are few but what is lacking in number is made up with unparalleled views of this volcanic landscape. Trails, campgrounds, and old growth forests can all be found just north of the National Volcanic Monument in the Randle Ranger District. These areas relatively unaffected by the volcano offer a sharp contrast to the blast area just a few miles to the south. And there are a number of trails which skirt the perimeter of the Mount St. Helens Volcano. A climbing permit is required for these trails. To ensure a quality hiking experience and your safety, wear sturdy shoes, bring sunscreen, and carry one quart or more of water per person.
Mt. St. Helens -
The morning of May 18, 1980 my sister came into my home excitedly telling me that the mountain was exploding. Well, I didn't want to miss that so I drove to the top of the hill where I could see that she was right. I went back to the house, grabbed my camera, jumped into my car and sped to the Kelso airport. I quickly got into my Cessna 172 plane with three friends that were standing by and headed for Mt.St. Helens ......

No geological phenomenon assails our senses quite like a volcanic eruption. Stay close enough, and you can hear the explosion, see the fire fountaining, smell the gases, feel the ground tremble, taste the ash in your mouth.
U.S. Geological Survey -
Created by an act of Congress in 1879, the USGS has evolved over the ensuing 120 years, matching its talent and knowledge to the progress of science and technology. Today, the USGS stands as the sole science agency for the Department of the Interior. It is sought out by thousands of partners and customers for its natural science expertise and its vast earth and biological data holdings. The USGS is the science provider of choice in accessing the information and understanding to help resolve complex natural resource problems across the Nation and around the world.

Volcanoes -
Volcanoes destroy and volcanoes create. The catastrophic eruption of Mount St. Helens on May 18, 1980, made clear the awesome destructive power of a volcano. Yet, over a time span longer than human memory and record, volcanoes have played a key role in forming and modifying the planet upon which we live.

Volcanoes of Auckland
Auckland Regional Council. Welcome to our Volcanic Hazards web site. This site has been specially designed for school pupils studying the volcanoes of Auckland but should be of interest to everyone.
Volcanoes of Canada -
Canada has examples of almost every type of volcano. Although none are erupting now, at least 3 did in the last few hundred years and numerous others have the potential to erupt in the near future. Other countries volcanoes also can affect Canadians: eruptions in Alaska or along the west coast of the U.S.A. can impact agriculture and air travel across western Canada. Mt. Baker in particular has the potential to affect the Fraser Valley. In addition, large-magnitude eruptions anywhere in the world may affect our weather.
Volcanoes - FEMA for Kids -
A volcano is a mountain that opens downward to a pool of molten rock below the surface of the earth. When pressure builds up, eruptions occur. Gases and rock shoot up through the opening and spill over or fill the air with lava fragments. Eruptions can cause lateral blasts, lava flows, hot ash flows, mudslides, avalanches, falling ash and floods. Volcano eruptions have been known to knock down entire forests. An erupting volcano can trigger tsunamis, flashfloods, earthquakes, mudflows and rockfalls.
Volcanoes of Guatemala -
