The volcanoes are located where there is a divergence or convergence in the tectonic plates and bring their lava from the deepest of the terrestrial mantle. The materials and explosions of these ginates represent a constant risk in the places inhabited by the human being, nevertheless the people ususually live in these areas no matter the risk. On the other hand the volcanos can change the geology of an impressive form, or to cool the temperature of the earth, or to darken the sky. The scientific community increases its efforts to try to understand better what happens in volcanoes, however it is impossible to predict these conditions.
Volcanoes are one of the most intimidating natural processes that occur on this planet. Usually they are associated with danger and chaos. Volcanoes are characterized by both their composition and eruption types. In this paper we will be exploring the similarities and differences between three infamous volcanoes, Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Kileaue, and the currently relevant Mt. Agung.
In this heart you will find the beating pulse of fierce volcanoes, just waiting to be revealed. Taking us back millions of years to Earth’s origins. Make no mistake, this Island may be a jewel, but it is one gem not to mess with. The beauty is
Volcanos are beautiful yet discursive. They may have different effects on towns but some are similar, and some are different. Some may have an effect on both people and cities and the people's mindsets may change on their beloved homes.
Ramses built more monuments than than any other pharaoh. One of his memorial temples was the Ramesseum. Although it is currently in ruins, this mortuary temple was an impressive feat of construction with 62 ft high statues weighing in an excess of 41000 tons. Even though there is only one pylon left, all of them bared his name and achievements to boast to whoever entered. After the battle of Kadesh( Millmore, 1997), Ramses built yet more another famous monument. Named Abu Simbel it was made to honor Ramses himself( Wendy Frey, et en , 2004) and featured a smaller temple honoring Nefertari, his favorite wife. It included 4 giant statues of Ramses that were carved out of a cliff. The inside had three halls and contained altars of Ramses and three gods( Wendy Frey, et en, 2004) and built so that twice a year sunlight would shine down and light up the statues. Many pharaohs built statues and monuments to honor themselves, but Ramses built the most and did it in the most rompous
Something beautiful can also be dangerous, as like the darkness can have phenomenal results. Volcanoes are one example of nature’s beauty, they can be fascinating, exciting, magnificent, but they can also be catastrophic. Their hazard eruptions put many lives at risk, destroying properties, places, and can disrupt air quality. The list of volcanoes is huge, there are three groups of them, dormant, extinct and active volcanoes. From the latter group there are about 500 in the entire world. Although both Mt. St Helens and Mt Pinatubo are two of the most significant volcanoes in the world, they have some characteristics that show their differences and similarities between both of them.
Arguably, one of the most influential structures of Rome was the Pantheon because of its immense size, and the use of concrete for the massive dome. This structure was named the Pantheon most likely because Pliny the elder, a spectator during the time of Vespasian 's rule saw this and referred to it as the “Pantheum”. Although the version of the Pantheon that Pliny the elder saw is not the Pantheon currently in Rome, there are many accounts of what it looked like, and why it was built. Agrippa’s Pantheon, the version that Pliny witnessed, or the original pantheon was built during the Pax Romana. This was a time of peace for the Romans, and to lead them in their endeavors was Emperor Augustus. During this time culture flourished because of there was no need to worry about necessities. From 31 BCE to 14CE the Pantheon was constructed to honor the Julian clan. The result of this was a south-facing rectangular building, with the Thermae of Agrippa, or the Roman public baths to the south. This temple was decastyle, meaning that is had 10 columns on each side. Pliny also mentioned that Diogenes of Athens was commissioned by Agrippa to create the caryatid columns. Caryatid columns are much like sculptures, in that they depict a person, but this person is standing in order to form a column to support another structure. To much dismay this temple was destroyed in the
Volcanoes are one of the most destructive, yet, most beautiful things on Earth. They can make a famous city choke in its own ashes in one day, like Pompeii. Or they can turn a once damaging mountain into a graceful and peaceful home for new life, like Mount St. Helen’s. All volcanoes are unique, and no two are the same. Some erupt differently than others, some look different than others, and all are located in different spots all over the world. I learned this while completing the project and the five volcanoes I researched are examples of my discoveries. The five volcanoes I researched were Mount Hood, Mount Mageik, Long Island, Mount Muria, and Las Pilas.
Some of the earliest history of the Pyramid comes from a Greek traveler named Herodotus of Halicanassus. He visited Egypt around 450 BC and included a description of the Great Pyramid in a history book he wrote. Herodotus was told by his Egyptian guides that it took twenty-years for a force of 100,000 oppressed slaves to build the pyramid. Stones were lifted into position by the use of immense machines. The purpose of the structure, according to Herodotus's sources, was as a tomb for the Pharaoh Khufu (whom the Greeks referred to as Cheops).
And just as Gutzon set out to build a great feat, so will this paper and its interpretation and story-telling of the past. The history behind this monument, the artistry that is and was displayed, and the basic skills of location, environment, and factors that influence geography will also be discussed here. This work by Gutzon was not just mere sensationalism or commercialism, as has normally been the angle of reporters, but instead this will take on the historic aspect as it was originally intended to bring out.
Mount Vesuvius is one of history’s most recognizable Volcanoes, as each of its eruptions have gone down as a significant event in geologic history. The events that transpired during and after these eruptions have shaped the way scientists and people view the sheer power that these volcanoes possessed. This report will take a look at Vesuvius’ most prolific eruption in 79 AD. The geologic setting of the mountain, precursor activity, and the impact the eruption had on the surrounding populations and towns will all be detailed. Along with these details, this report will also look at the further history of Vesuvius’s explosive past by detailing its eruption cycle. Finally, the current state of Vesuvius and the possible danger
There is one volcano i wanted to talk about in particular. That volcano is Popocatepetl it has a great love story and legend to it. There are many theories to it but I will try to find the most reasonable one.
About 7,700 years ago, Mount Mazama erupted on itself after building upon itself and reaching an impressive height of 12,000 feet. The aftermath of the collapse left a crater more than 2000 feet deep and 6 miles wide (Reichmann)! The rocks and minerals from the Mount Mazama
The mythology of the Aztec peoples, which dominated central Mexico in the 1400’s and early 1500’s, described a universe of greatness and fear. In this Mexica civilization, volcanoes had a deep spiritual as well as strategic military importance. The legend of the volcanoes, Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl, is no different. The Aztec mythological explanation for the two volcanoes is a story of love and war. In this paper, I will describe the legend behind these two natural locations and its correlation with the spiritual and social importance of volcanoes to the Mexica people at the time.
There are seven most remarkable structures of ancient times and I’m going to write about four out of the seven. The statue of Zeus, which was created in 432 B.C., by Phidius, the lighthouse Of Alexandria that was created by Sostratus in 290 B.C. and took 20 years to complete. The Temple of Artemis at Ephesus that was first created in 800 B.C. by Croesus and the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus that was built around 353 and 350 B.C. These are only four out of the seven wonders I will be writing about who commissioned and created each one of them. How they were built, where they were located, when was it constructed, why they were considered one of the seven wonders of the ancient world and what happened to them.
