An original article from the Edinburgh New Philosophical Journal Baron Ferdinand Freiherr von Richthofen HFRSE BGS ( – ), was a German traveller, geographer, and geologist. He is noted within the geological community for his petrological studies on igneous rocks and for the study of loess deposits.

In military history he is known as an uncle of the German World War I flying ace Manfred Von Richthofen, best known as the "Red Baron ”. He devotes much attention to volcanic phenomena, is quite critical of Neptunian dogma thus playing a major role in the removal of that dogma from teaching in universities.

The Pacific Ring of Fire is where the majority of the volcanic activity on the Earth occurs. A description of the Pacific Ring of Fire along western North America is a description of the plate boundaries. Subduction at the Middle American Trench creates volcanoes in Central America.

The San Andreas Fault is a transform boundary. A volcanic eruption occurs when molten rock, ash and steam pour through a vent in the earth's crust. Volcanoes are described as active (in eruption), dormant (not erupting at the present time), or extinct (having ceased eruption; no longer active).

It is well known that large volcanic eruptions contribute to climate variability. A new study uses new evidence found in both ice cores and corresponding tree rings to show the timing and.

Volcanic glasses such as obsidian form when some physical property of lava restricts ion mobility preventing an ordered crystalline pattern to develop, and for obsidian it is the viscosity that has the greatest control on the ordered crystalline pattern, the measure of viscosity is dependent on the temperature, crystal content and chemical.
