Adaptations of plants and animalsThe animals living near this area include deer, bears, and mountain lions. Plants include ferns and small trees. Plants and animals are able to survive around or in Volcanoes because of several volcanic products that are crucial and the soil is very rich.

Volcanoes: An Extreme EnvironmentVolcanoes can get VERY HOT and can get to about 6oo degrees Fahrenheit/315 degrees Celcius. When the volcano erupts, poisonous gases and ash fall on surroundings.Submarine Volcanoes grow bigger when they erupt, and there is usually less sea life after that happens.

Location Volcanoes are located in a line between Australia and Europe, and in a ring around the Pacific Ocean (Ring Of Fire). These are places where tectonic plates collide.

Technology used for explorationVolcanolagists use lots of different tools to help them study volcanos. Some of them are: the NIRST satellite, used to detect hot spots and volcanic activity, the VLF and the EM-31, used to determine how much lava is moving underground, COSPEC, used to detect and measure volcanic gases, EDM, used for measuring ground deformation, gas masks, used to breath air, and thick gloves, special suits and boots prevent burns and chemicals from getting on their skin.

Human Volcano ExplorationPoeple explore volcanoes to understand the past and to prepare in the future with active volcanoes.
