Tendürek Dagi, also known as Tendürük Dagi, is an elongated shield volcano that rises 1800 m above the plain of Dogubeyazit, near the Iranian border, south of Mount Ararat. An E-W-trending summit ridge, developed north of an arcuate caldera structure exposed only on the southern side, contains two well-developed cones. The higher western cone is capped by a steep-walled crater with a trachytic ...
The Sierra Negra Volcano in the Galapagos Islands began erupting on October 22, 2005. In early November, it was still producing ash clouds and lava flows. In fact, Sierra Negra’s lava flow was so hot it could be seen at night—by a thermal infrared satellite sensor, that is.

This crater is located inside Virunga National Park, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The main crater is about two km (6,562 ft.) wide and usually contains a lava lake. The crater presently has two distinct cooled lava benches within the crater walls - one at about 3175m (10,400 ft) and a lower one at about 2975m (9,800 ft).
On June 19, 2007, Mount Nyiragongo released a plume. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite took this picture the same day. In this image, the blue-tinted plume blows over Lake Kivu toward the southeast. The plume’s light color suggests that it consists primarily of water vapor. A bright, opaque white puff at the volcano’s summit could be part of the...
Located about 40 miles (65 km) southeast of Mexico City.The last major eruption of Popocatepetl (pronounced poh-poh-kah-TEH-peh-til) occurred in 800 A.D., in which vast amounts of lava and ash from the volcano completely filled many of the surrounding valleys. Since then, there have been at least five moderate eruptions, two of which occurred in the 1900s. Toward the end of 2000, scientists war...
