The highest active volcano in the world, up to 6739 m above sea level
volcano is a common topography. 100 to 150 kilometers beneath the earth’s crust, a “liquid zone”, the presence of the high temperature zone, the gas containing volatile components under high pressure molten silicate material, i.e. magma. Once it out of the ground from a weak crustal area, to form a volcano. Volcano divided into “active volcano”, “extinct” and “dormant volcano.” Volcanic hot center of the earth is a window, the most explosive power on earth can emit a variety of substances outbreak. There are hazards: volcanic debris flows, lava flows and so on. So the world up to of an active volcano, what is it? Here and small series with a look!
the world’s highest active volcano, 6739 meters above sea level up to
especially in South America Ye Yake volcano is the world’s highest active volcano, its peak elevation of 6739 meters (22,110 feet). This layer is a continuous layer deposited by volcanic cone volcanic lava flows by the dense ash and rock fragments, and the like eruptions formed, located above a layer of volcanic older. According to historical records, Youye subfamily volcanic outbreak occurred in 1877. The volcano 6885 meters above sea level, due 6499.9 meters above sea level at its peak there is a small steaming crater ever outward, so some people think it is also the highest active volcano and the highest archaeological point.
the world’s highest dormant volcano, Youye subfamily
the highest on Earth the dormant volcano, Youye subfamily (Llullaillaco) volcano in northern Chile to the west of the border with Argentina border in the middle of the Andes, the geographical coordinates of 24043’S, 68033’W, about 6723 meters above sea level, peak snow. As early as the year 1550 ago, humans had boarded this mountain. There have been recorded in human history to have three times the volcanic eruptions, the most recent eruption was in 1877. After a hundred years, the volcano has been dormant so far no further activity, also found no evidence of recent re-active. The volcano 45 kilometers north of the mountain pass for the cable hole Pa, is the countryIntercity railway line passes at.
