Volcanoes and Water

Volcanoes and Water“. Steven Goddard tells us that volcanic eruptions are mostly steam and ash. Because The Guardian was stupid enough to say in a caption that the cloud rising from the Eyjafjallajokull eruption in Iceland contained smoke!

Correct but irrelevant, Steven. I’m not so sure about your theory that volcanic explosions are due to contact with water though. I think that depressurization of the magma and sudden release of contained gasses might be involved.

But that’s a nice collection of volcano photos.
