Volcanoes are some of the most spectacular events in nature.
They cause massive eruptions that not only cause untold destruction. But it also change the world around you. To order the political, social and economic landscapes many great cities have been made desolate by these awe-inspiring natural phenomena.
Volcanic eruptions are complex as volcanologists will tell you they are very diverse. As they can be caused by a multitude of events. There are layers of molten rock under the earth’s crust. Because of the high temperatures at the core, it is melted to form Magma. Magma is made up of different gases mainly carbon dioxide water vapor and Sulphur dioxide.
The problem is the storage compartment is not fail-safe because Magma exists in the gaseous form. It is less dense than the rock, evaporates, and rises at the same time. Water vapor escapes its Bubbles which increases the relative density of carbon dioxide and Sulphur dioxide.
Volcano Eruption Captured On The Island Of Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai
When scientists managed to capture an underwater volcano was just as stunning as terrestrial like the Tonga eruption. It was captured as it happened using an Earth-watching satellite. It showed how explosive things could get in the south Pacific. It also allowed scientists to follow the progress of the eruption as they had never done before.
The volcano eruption on the island of Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai was captured by the U.S. National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration Noah. The video of the eruption shows a vast plum from the volcano rising high into the atmosphere like a giant mushroom during the eruption.
A shock wave extends from Hunga Tonga which makes up the South Pacific Kingdom of Tonga. The underwater volcanic eruption birthed a 4-ft Tsunami that struck Tonga’s capital of Nuku’alofa at a distance about 40 miles south of the volcano. However, the eruption occurred in stages according to observations of satellite images there was little eruptive activity.
