Volcanoes have been around for quite some time and we know they are quite the spectacle to observe, but shouldn’t we be worried to? I mean as interesting and amazing they can be, don’t forget that they can also kill thousands of people to. In fact volcanos are so interesting that they are underwater and other places, including around the solar system. Interesting fact that Venus is basically a whole planet made of volcanoes and whenever we want to explore the volcano planet but it’s so hot there that when we put our machines on the surface it either melts or explodes do to the heat. Wouldn’t you agree that we should monitorize volcanoes before they can harm people and populations?
Volcanoes are an interesting yet dangerous part of earth. Volcanoes come in many sizes and can do various things to it’s surroundings. Volcanoes under water can cause tsunami’s. If the eruption of the volcano under water is really strong than it could possibly bring up another Island from under water. A good example may be Hawaii and the islands of Hawaii were originally not there, a really strong volcanic eruption from the bottom of the ocean arose and caused the islands of Hawaii to rise. If the pressure and force is strong enough, islands can appear out of thin air just like Hawaii did.
Volcanoes can be researched and examined to find out the most spectacular things about them but they should also be kept in check, just in case any deadly explosions occur. We need to find a way to be able to research them without risking injury of civilians. We have found a way that can keep us cautious of volcanoes and it’s through satellites and other systems that can detect heat. Although volcanoes are well monitored, some are not and that can become a problem in case it does erupt. We may have the technology to keep watch of dormant volcanoes but who says we need to only keep watch of those volcanoes. There may be other volcanoes out there and are getting read to erupt that could cause major mayhem to a city or population living near the volcano. We need to keep a better watch on these volcanoes instead of waiting for hazards to erupt.
Although volcanoes can be intriguing to many others including scientists, these big mountains are actually very dangerous. In fact according to The Atlantic “The Scary State of Volcano Monitoring in the United States” it states that “Volcanoes aren’t just dangerous because of their fiery lava. In 1986, volcanic gas killed more than 1,700 people in Cameroon.” Others were also killed by flying boulders and the actual hot lava that was moving down rapidly towards the civilians. Volcanoes can seem to be nice and gentle but once awakened, they can become extremely fearsome knowing there is molten hot lava, boulders, volcanic gasses, etc. We need to figure out a way to maintain volcanoes from erupting and destroying homes and injuring the population.
We should in fact find a way to remain surveillance on every volcano that has either had a history of being active, dormant, and even the least hazardous ones. Even if the equipment may be a bit pricey to be able to monitor all the volcanoes around the world we have to potential to do so and I saw we should help people around the world to either evacuate before the volcano erupts and help them to safety or leave them to be either dead or seriously injured. At this moment what we use to keep watch over these mountains are low quality crappy satellites and systems but they aren’t as accurate as we want them to be. There is better gear to have and improve ourselves to protect others but we don’t put the money to work so we can keep our countries and people safe from theses amazing yet life-threatening mountains.
