ENVR 1145 Volcanoes - danger, destruction, discovery

You ever wonder why volcanoes seem to be erupting all the time in some parts of the world but not at all in others?  Why do some volcanoes erupt violently while others much more gently?  Why is Hawaii, far out in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, experiencing so much volcanic activity?  Why are the Hawaiian Islands even there?  The same goes for Iceland.  Will Yellowstone erupt again?  Have volcanic eruptions ever wiped out most of life on Earth?  What about volcanoes and climate change, any relationship? These questions and more are addressed in a Fall course. No prerequisites.
