A super-heated volcanic lava field or a lava lake?
A super volcano or a Superheated Lava Field?
The question of which is cooler may not be that important, but if you’re going to spend a lot of time exploring the unknown, it’s good to know where you stand.
Superheating is a term used to describe when a super volcano, like Mount St. Helens in California, or Mount St Helens and Mount Adams in New Mexico, suddenly erupts.
When a super volcanic eruption erupts, the pressure in the surrounding area is so high that it starts to boil and eventually produces steam, which eventually turns to steam, and eventually gas, which in turn is turned into steam.
If you look closely, the steam is actually boiling off the surrounding lava, which then expands and begins to expand.
As the steam expands, it creates a plume of lava that eventually flows down a slope and out of sight.
Super volcanoes tend to erupt at very hot temperatures, about 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit (450 degrees Celsius), which is just enough to ignite lava.
However, when you’re at the bottom of a volcano, the lava falls slowly to the bottom, and you don’t see much of it.
A superheating lava field is similar to a lava field, except that there’s so much steam and gas flowing that it can’t burn the surrounding rock.
The steam rises to a height of about 200 feet (70 meters) above the surrounding volcanic rock.
As it rises, the temperature of the surrounding gas starts to drop, which gives it a steamier texture.
Then the steam and pressure in that area of the field begins to drop.
When the steam rises, it expands and creates a lava flow.
The gas then rises again, creating another steam flow, and so on.
