Here are some related keywords: lahar, strombolian eruption, flowing lava, nuee ardente, pyroclastic flow. Search for examples of eruption activity. Also try selected geographic names: Philippines, Japan, Italy, South America, Hawaii, New Zealand, Alaska, Cascades, Yellowstone, Mammoth Lakes, or other famous volcanoes and volcanic events.

Students can search for videos on on government websites and on YouTube.com.

Upon finding and viewing videos, select at least 10 videos and copy the URLs for inclusion into a e-document or e-mail.
