What would happen if you jumped into a volcano?

I do not think you would melt-- if anything, you would catch on fire (unless yeah, the gases killed you first)

El Valle (volcano)

El Valle is a stratovolcano in central Panama and is the easternmost volcano along the Central American Volcanic Arc which has been formed by the subduction of the Nazca Plate below Central America. Some time prior to 200,000 years ago, the volcano underwent a huge eruption event that caused the top of the volcano to collapse into the empty magma chamber below forming a large caldera. Several lava domes have developed inside the caldera since the collapse-forming Cerro Pajita, Cerro Gaital and Cerro Caracoral peaks. Prior to research in the early 1990s, it was thought that no active volcanism existed within Panama. But radioactive dates from El Valle show that the volcano last erupted as recently as 200,000 years ago. Work by de Boer et al. and Defant et al. of other volcanoes within Panama have shown that there are two episodes of volcanism-young ( 4.5 million years ago) groups. The young volcanism consists of adakites (slab melts) whereas the older volcanism appears to be normal calc-alkaline volcanism.

What is a volcano? How are volcanic eruptions predicted?

A volcano is a vent or fissure in the Earth's surface through which lava (molten rock), gases, and heat escape from Earth's interior. A common misconception is that the magma comes from the core of the Earth. This is false. Most magma is generated in the upper mantle, beneath the crust. Volcanoes exist because Earth's interior is hot and these are the places where heat and hot materials are transferred to the surface. Lava and tephra (the solids that get blasted out) pile up around the vent to form a mountain. So the land form that is formed by all this activity is also called a volcano. Volcanic eruptions can not be predicted far in advance. But when the volcano starts exhibiting signs of unrest (earthquakes, ground deformation, gas emissions, and heat emissions) scientists can monitor the activity and make probabilistic eruption forecasts.

What type of volcano does basalt come from?

There is not a specific type of volcanoe that can produce basalt. Sheild volcanoes, like in Hawai'i and Cinder Cones (like Stromboli) produce only basalt. Stratovolcanoes (like Mt. St. Helens) and even Supervolcanoes (like Yellowstone) also produce basalt, though basalt in never behind the big, explosive eruptions.

what happens inside the volcano during its eruption?

A sonic the hedgehog plush jumps outta the TV screen inside th volcano and it kills the volcano people

if you had to live by any volcano?

Geologists generally group volcanoes into four main types: 1. cinder cones 2. composite volcanoes 3. lava domes 4. shield volcanoes Of these four types, the shield volcanoes are by far the least violent, due to their predominantly mafic (basaltic) lava which is less explosive than felsic (rhyolite with lots of gas and steam). Therefore, shield volcanoes such as Kilauea in the Hawaiian Islands would be the safest to live by. I disagree with the above answer. Mt. St. Helens is a composite volcano, which can be highly violent. High velocity means fast, not slow.

Summary of Volcanic Activity Alert Notification SystemAviation color codesEarlier volcano warning schemes for the United States

Prior to October 2006, three parallel Volcano warning schemes were used by the United States Geological Survey and the volcano observatories for different volcano ranges in the United States. They each have a base level for dormant-quiescent states and three grades of alert. Color Code Conditions, Long Valley Caldera and Mono-Inyo Craters Region, CaliforniaDeveloped in 1997 to replace a previous 5-level system devised in 1991. Level of Concern Color Codes for volcanoes in AlaskaThe Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) used the following color-coded system to rate volcanic activity. It was originally established during the 1989-90 eruption of Redoubt Volcano. All five classifications are spelled as proper nouns, i.e., Level of Concern Color Code Orange not Level of concern color code Orange or any other variation. On its website the AVO spells the alert color in all capitals, but this is not otherwise necessary outside their system. Warning system for Cascade Range volcanoes in Washington and OregonIntroduced following the May 18, 1980, eruption of Mount St. Helens.
