Volcanoes By Tricia Severson 2nd hour Science 4/30/98 A volcano is a vent, or opening, in the surface of the Earth through which magma and associated gases and ash erupt. The word also refers to the form or structure, usually conical, produced by accumulations of erupted material. Volcanoes occur mainly near plate tectonic boundaries and are especially common around the Pacific basin, called the Pacific Ring of Fire (see Plate Tectonics).    Humanity has long been awed by this powerful force of

The Dodo Bird Scientific and Common Name: When Portuguese sailors first arrived on an uninhabited island a bird greeted them without fear. Since the bird had never seen a human before, it had no reason to be afraid. The sailors thought that the bird was stupid so they named it dodo, Portuguese for fool. The scientific name is Raphus cucullatus; the dodo was also referred to as a dronte. Another theory of how the dodo got it's name is that the Portuguese tried to imitate the doo like noise the

Ancient astronomers observed points of light that appeared to move among the stars. They called these objects planets, meaning wanderers, and named them after Roman deities -- Jupiter, king of the gods; Mars, the god of war; Mercury, messenger of the gods; Venus, the god of love and beauty, and Saturn, father of Jupiter and god of agriculture. The stargazers also obs

A Theory to Explain the Patterns of Activity Scientists now have a fairly good understanding of how the plates move and how such movements relate to earthquake activity. Most movement occurs along narrow zones between plates where the results of plate-tectonic forces are most evident. There are four types of plate boundaries: · Divergent boundaries -- where new crust is generated as the plates pull away from each other. · Convergent boundaries -- where crust is destroyed as one plate dives unde

Many peoples have contributed to the development of the United States of America, a vast nation that arose from a scattering of British colonial outposts in the New World. The first humans to inhabit the North American continent were migrants from northeast Asia who established settlements in North America as early as 8000 BC and possibly much earlier (see NORTH AMERICAN ARCHAEOLOGY). By about AD 1500 the native peoples of the areas north of the Rio Grande had developed a variety of different c
