Scientists believe fossil beds in northern China are packed with the victims of a volcanic explosion much like that that hit the Roman City of Pompeii.

Title: 'Animal Pompeii' wiped out creatures

Author: Rebecca Morelle

Date: February 4, 2014

Main Idea: Volcanic eruptions in Pompeii

Summary: How volcanic eruptions in Pompeii may have been the solution to how the creatures from the lower Cretaceous were instantly killed.

Opinion: The opinion is the scientists think that the volcanic eruptions may have been the solution to how the creatures from the lower cretaceous era were killed.

Questions/suggestions: How did the ash falling on the people kill them?

It is important to science because they figured out how those creatures died.

Explosive volcanoes light up Mercury's deep past

The crushing atmospheric pressure on Venus means that volatiles cannot easily escape from emerging magma, so exploding volcanoes can't exist.

Title: Explosive volcanoes light up Mercury's deep past

Main Idea: Volcanic activity on Mercury

Summary: How the volcanic activity has changed the planets formation.

 Questions/suggestions: How did they know it was volcanic and not meteors.

I think it is important to science because it has completely changed mercury's surface

adam gray brooks's curator insight, February 3, 2014 8:03 PM

this is about mercury and how scientist thought that its craters where formed by meteors crashing into them but they were really caused by volcanoes


i didnt know that mercury had volcanoes on it

This article changes all kinds of knowledge of Mercury's nature. No one knew it has magma under the surface. All along one thought that the craters were caused by crazy meteors crashing into it, but now that they see it has red on the side of the crater they know. It's really amusing how we yet find things out about our solar system.

Title: Explosive volcanoes light up mercury's deep past

Author: Robin Wylie

Date: January 31-2014

Main Idea: volcanic activity on Mercury

Summary: Volcanoes cover the planet Mercury's surface.

There is no opinion

My question is how and why does this all happen.

I think that this article is important to science because we might need Mercury in the future for whatever it is! But this is important.
