4. Hazards

4.1. Earthquakes

4.1.1. Pressure built up is released and produces very strong seismic waves.

4.1.2. Measured on Richter scale

4.2. Volcanoes

4.2.1. Extinct

4.2.1.1. Unlikely to ever erupt again

4.2.1.2. Devil's Tower

4.2.2. Dormant

4.2.2.1. Hasn't erupted in 2500 years

4.2.2.2. Santorini

4.2.3. Active

4.2.4. Composite Volcano

4.2.4.1. Mixture of Lava and Ash

4.2.5. Shield Volcano

4.2.5.1. Lava basic and runny, flows quickly and creates flat volcanoes.

4.2.6. Dome Volcano

4.2.6.1. Lava acid and thicker, flowing slower and hardens quickly to form steep-sided features.
