Default What effect does volcanic steam have on the earth?



And:

How do volcanoes affect:
-The rocks of the Earth's crust
- Water in rivers, snow caps, glaciers and underground
-The atmosphere

Thanks in advance

i think that The products of a volcano eruption can negatively affect the land around a volcano. The lava that emerges from volcanos during eruption can (due to its heat) destroy plants and objects that it comes into contact with. Volcanic ash, also released during eruption, can cause damage to plants, either by crushing them or by preventing enough sunlight from reaching their leaves (which inhibits the production of food for plants)may be its a helpful answer for you.thanks

This beach is a beautiful spot that is full of entertaining you can't ever really feel like wasting your time. Today, when artificiality is all over the place Hollywood beach has preserved its natural flavor.

Aside from effect in the communities nearby where the eruption takes place and damage on properties, volcanic eruption causes some changes in climate. Volcanic eruptions and even other compositional changes on earth’s atmosphere produce climatic effects; haze, ozone, and green house effect. In addition, some gas explode by volcanoes contain toxic that can suffocate and take lives.

The volcanic steam effects depend on the distance from a volcano, on magma viscosity, and on gas concentrations. The hazards closer to the volcano include pyroclastic flows, flows of mud, gases and steam, earthquakes, blasts of air, and tsunamis. Among the hazards in distant areas are the effects of toxic volcanic ashes and problems of the respiratory system, eyes and skin, as well as psychological effects, injuries, transport and communication problems, waste disposal and water supplies issues, collapse of buildings and power outage.

Hi,

Volcanic eruptions can have an effect on the overall climate of the planet, and historically have been responsible for altering Earth's temperature -- for example, in the years 1783 and 1784. Eruptions release large quantities of carbon dioxide, which traps heat as part of the greenhouse effect, and thus contributes to the gradual rising of Earth's temperature. Volcanic eruptions also release atmospheric haze, as ash and gases full of sulphur released in the eruption end up surrounding the planet. The result is that sunlight is blocked from reaching the planet's surface; this can have the opposite effect of global warming, actually reducing Earth's temperature.

Thanks a lot!
