Volcanic eruptions occur in a large variety of styles, magnitudes, and durations, and produce numerous phenomena that can be hazardous to humans, their property and their environment. The following chapters provide information on the most hazardous volcanic phenomena. It has to be noted that many of these processes can occur either together or in rapid succession during a single eruption at one volcano. Differences in eruptive styles are determined by a number of factors such as physical and chemical properties of the magma, magma ascent and eruption rate, event location, volcano geometry, and volcano morphology.
