Chile Volcano Eruption
智利火山爆發

A volcano in southern Chile erupted after lying dormant for more than 50 years. A huge cloud of ash and smoke spewed to the height of 10 kilometres into the sky, darkening skies as far away as Argentina. More than 4,000 people nearby were forced to leave their town and hundreds of flights were cancelled.

智利南部的火山沉睡50多年後再次爆發。大量火山灰及濃煙沖雲霄達10公里,鄰國阿根廷的上空亦被波及至灰黑一片。鄰近城鎮4000多人被迫撤離,數百班航機要取消。

Why do volcanoes erupt?
為甚麼火山會爆發?

Volcanoes erupt because of buoyancy and pressure. Buoyancy is a force that causes lighter material to rise through surrounding denser material. The hot liquid magma rises towards the surface through the more dense rock. Gas pressure from gas dissolved in the magma also exerts force on the surrounding rock. It cracks the rocks above the magma and then moves into the crack. This process repeats many times until the magma reaches the surface.

火山爆發是因為浮力和壓力造成。浮力是密度較高的物質把密度較低的物質往上升的力量,所以熾熱的岩漿會通過密度較高的岩石上升到地面。而溶解在岩漿的氣體亦會對周邊的岩石施加壓力,令這些岩石破裂,這些氣體從而滲入岩縫內。這個過程不斷循環,直至岩漿湧到地面。

When will the eruption stop?
火山爆發會在甚麼時候停止?

An eruption can last from a few seconds to a year, even centuries. Some volcanoes erupt all the time. Most volcanoes erupt for three to four weeks and then rest. An eruption will stop as soon as lava is cooled down.

火山爆發可以持續幾秒到一年,甚至數百年,有些火山更是不斷爆發。大部份火山會在爆發後3至4個星期後停止。當熔岩冷卻,火山爆發便會隨之消失。
