As destroyers of cities and creators of islands, volcanoes are as unique as they are destructive. Whether they spew thick ash or pack heavy lava flows, their eruptions are always a force to be reckoned with. Explore the explosive workings of volcanoes, the techniques scientists use to study them, and how people live in the shadows of these explosive landforms.
