Cause and Effect
A volcano erupts when magma escapes from inside the earth. As the magma is escaping from a confined space, a lot of energy is released with it, as happens with any other explosion. This is why many eruptions also produce huge quantities of gases and dust. Magma sometimes rises under enormous pressure, so it not only finds cracks in the earth’s crust, it can also create them. When magma reaches the earth’s surface it is called lava. An eruption is caused by lava escaping from below the earth's crust. This has many effects on the universe, explosive eruptions can change the surface areas around a volcano and disrupt drainage patterns, leading to long-term flooding. When volcanoes erupt they release a huge quantity of polluted clouds which make acid rain and acid rain can destroy small buildings, forests, and even living organisms. When lava and magma spreads they destroy nearly nine percent of the land surrounding including forests, houses, farms, and everything, and that effects the population of the area which will become zero!
