Volcanic eruptions

Throughout history, there have been enormous eruptions of volcanoes.

The power of these eruptions is measured using the Volcanic Explosivity Index (VEI). The classification system was developed in the 1980s. The scale goes from 1 to 8, and each succeeding VEI is 10 x greater than the last.

Understanding wildfires

Wildfires can spread across millions of acres of land in a very short time. These flames travel up to 14 miles an hour and can overtake the average human in minutes.

The destruction caused by wildfires in the United States has increased. Since 2000, about 72,400 wildfires have destroyed nearly 7 million acres of U.S. land. As more people are moving into rural and wilderness areas, it's vital to understand how wildfires get started and how to deal with them.
