This module include four problem-based learning scenarios related to volcanoes and emphasize different kinds of volcanic hazards and geologic processes. The four scenarios are: whether to build a new high school in the shadow of a restless volcanic giant, Mt. Rainier; Kilauea in Hawaii shows signs of activity. What are the prospects for the nearby population?; Mt. Hood is starting to act like Mt. St. Helens did in 1980, but Mt. Hood is just 40 miles from the metropalitan area. How might an eruption impact this populated area?; and America's largest volcano in Yellowstone National Park is stirring. Are we facing an eruption as devastating as a nuclear attack? This module is from Exploring the Environment.
