The ancient Romans believed that the destructive fire was commanded by the god Vulcan, hence the name of the geological heights. Today, scientific discoveries have made it possible to describe the origin of volcanoes, the nature of eruptions, the danger to the population living nearby.
Consider the largest active geological hills and give them a description. On the surface of the land their number exceeds 900 units, hundreds more are located under the waters of the oceans.
The largest eruption in history
All terrestrial volcanoes are divided into two types:
Depending on the activity of the eruption, it can last either a few days or indefinitely. It is noteworthy that the atmosphere on planet Earth arose due to the strongest eruptions, during which huge amounts of soot, steam and carbon dioxide were released into the atmosphere.
