Killer Volcanoes [electronic resource]

Summary
A volcano is one of nature's most devastating and unpredictable forces. Once it starts to erupt there is no power on earth which can stop it. Spewing great choking clouds of ash and smoke miles into the atmosphere, a violently erupting volcano can reshape the landscape. It can also kill hundreds (if not thousands of people) as deadly torrents of molten rock and superheated gas cascade down the side, overwhelming and destroying everything in their path. No matter how closely volcanoes are studied and monitored, they remain one of nature's most volatile and destructive elements.
