What effects do volcanoes cause dangerous effects: volcanic eruptions can cause earthquakes, fast floods, mud slides, and rock falls lava can travel very far and burn, bury, or damage anything in its path, including people, houses, and trees.
Seismicity refers to the frequency of earthquake activity in an area earthquakes follow distinct patterns of distribution that follow fault zones and reactivated fault zones the most violent earthquakes occur at low depths associated with subductive plates at convergent margins. What are natural hazards 1 how natural are natural hazards 2 the environment, natural hazards, and sustainable development a widely accepted definition characterizes natural hazards as those elements of the physical environment, harmful to man and caused by forces extraneous to him. Volcanic hazards types of lava flow this ranges from being extremely thick and viscous, to highly fluid the amount of pyroclastic material also varies the two types are: aa flow: this is a few metres thick, a mix of uneven shaped, sharp edged ash and cinder blocks. Several types of volcanic eruptions during which lava, tephra (ash, lapilli, volcanic bombs and volcanic blocks), and assorted gases are expelled from a volcanic vent or fissure have been distinguished by volcanologists.

Intrusive volcanic landforms when magma is forced to the surface only a small amount of the mass actually reaches that level most of the magma is intruded into the crust where it solidifies into a range of features these are often exposed at the surface by later erosion.

When you superimpose a map of active volcanoes in the world on a map of earthquakes during the past thirty years, you see that they match perfectly this is because most of the volcanic and seismic activity on earth is localised on the boundaries between tectonic plates however, these two. Natural hazards arise unexpectedly, without any discernible regularity, and leave an indelible trace in nature, sometimes for many decades to come volcanicity 3 - maximal registered (recorded or observed) height of tsunami waves 4. Usgs: volcano hazards program - monitoring volcano seismicity provides insight to volcanic structure moving magma and volcanic fluids trigger earthquakes.
