The most common kind of volcano on Earth (and one of the most explosive) is called a stratovolcano, and it can shoot ash, cinders and lava skyward.
This Amazing Natural Disaster project includes facts and info about volcanoes, the science behind them and helpful suggestions for other things to research, make, draw, create and include in your project! This planet is studded with about 500 active volcanoes, and about 50 or more erupt every year. And this dramatic increase in seismic activity that we are now seeing appears to fit into a larger pattern of major disasters that we have been witnessing over the past couple of months.

Then as we got to the very end of the month of September, a new kind of disaster began to take center stage.  As I wrote about just recently, the storm that would later became known as Hurricane Joaquin developed into a tropical depression on September 28th.
Overall, it has really been a bad couple of months for major disasters, and this sequence of events seems to have begun during the month of September.

If you are not familiar with the Ring of Fire, just imagine a giant ring that runs around the outer perimeter of the Pacific Ocean.  Approximately 90 percent of all earthquakes and approximately 75 percent of all volcanic eruptions occur within this area, and the entire west coast of North America is considered to be part of the Ring of Fire. As Americans, we are not accustomed to being concerned about major earthquakes and massive volcanic eruptions, but that could soon change in a big way.
