Eruption Cloud - John Seach
A volcanic cloud is a convoluted rolling
mass of water vapour and ash that is highly charged with electricity and
overhangs a volcano during an eruption.
The cloud is produced by a column of gases, ash, and rock emitted from
a crater. Eruption clouds may reach great heights. The 1883 eruption of
Krakatau produced an eruption
column 50 km high. Eruption clouds
may take on the shape of pine trees or cauliflowers.
