Summary: Red

Facts: Blue

This BTN was about how a sleeping volcano can still be dangerous 

  • Mt Sinabung was a sleeping volcano but it still erupted
  • The smell of the ashes smelt like rotten eggs
  • When a volcano doesn’t erupt it is called dormant
  • There is a volcano in Naples called Mt Vesuvius and it is really dangerous
  • It exploded in 79AD
  • When it erupted in 79AD the ash from the volcano hardened around the buildings (making a cocoon) which preserved them for along time and with people the ash harden around the people when they were about to die
  • If you want to find out when volcanoes are likely to erupt you can look at the patterns of when a volcano has erupted and then see the time patterns
  • The biggest explosion by Mt Vesuvius was 2000 years ago!
