From the time immemorial, in the Arctic and outside of it volcanic eruption accompany us. The "Volcanoes and humans" lesson presents 8 examples of volcanoes, which had impact on the human society and describes their consequences. The presentation begins with a short introduction to the mechanism of a volcanic eruption and continues with examples. During the lesson we will learn about 7 eruptions (and one dormant volcano), which have made its mark on societies - from new islands arising off Iceland's coast to global climate cooling in the 19th century.
