Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 did you know that the word volcano comes from the Roman god of fire, Vulcan a infographic by Fatima.w did you know that the universe's biggest volcano is actually on mars Its name is Olympus Mons and it measures a 600km (373 miles) wide and 21km (13 miles) high. The object with the most volcanic activity in our solar system is Io, one of Jupiters moons. Covered in volcanoes, its surface is constantly changing to the large amount of volcanic activity. There are also volcanoes found on the ocean floor and even under icecaps, such as those found in Iceland. Volcanoes are formed when magma from within the Earth's upper mantle works its way to the surface. At the surface, it erupts to form lava flows and ash deposits. Over time as the volcano continues to erupt, it will get bigger and bigger. Large volcanic eruptions can reflect radiation from the Sun and drop average temperatures on Earth by around half a degree. There have been several examples of this over the last century. sources\ Volcanic eruptions can send ash high into the air, over 30km (17 miles) above the Earths surface how volcanoes affect people Volcanoes affect people in many ways, some are good, some are not. Some of the bad ways are that houses, buildings, roads, and fields can get covered with ash. As long as you can get the ash off (especially if it is wet), your house may not collapse, but often the people leave because of the ash and are not around to continually clean off their roofs. If the ashfall is really heavy it can make it impossible to breathe.Lava flows are almost always too slow to run over people, but they can certainly run over houses, roads, and any other structures.Pyroclastic flows are mixtures of hot gas and ash, and they travel very quickly down the slopes of volcanoes. They are so hot and choking that if you are caught in one it will kill you. They are also so fast (100-200 km/hour) that you cannot out-run them. If a volcano that is known for producing pyroclastic flows is looking like it may erupt soon, the best thing is for you to leave before it does.Some of the good ways that volcanoes affect include producing spectacular scenery, and producing very rich soils for farming. volcanos
