This weeks subject: Volcanoes

The Mammoth Lakes area of California has been rocked by thousands of earthquakes in recent months. Scientists say the seismic activity is being triggered by volcanic lava flow like that seen at left from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano. Predicting if or when volcanoes will erupt is important because the destructive force can be greater than that of several atomic bombs. Students and others can learn more about volcanoes by using the direct links on The Times' Launch Point Web site. Go to http//www.latimes.com/launch/
