    my 2 volcano case studies are mt etna, sicily and chaiten, chile which both seem to have a lot of information on the internet so seem like good ones to learn

    Also, when people are writing about impacts, do you think it is better to split them into short-term and long-term or social, environmental, economic etc? I never know which is best!
    hey, urm probably into social, eco, env as its pretty simple to know what is long and short term but into both categories will be great!

    Also remember that you can't use Mt. St. Helens as a primary case study for an essay question as it is not within the last 30 years! :^_^:
    you can use Mt St Helens, its only 'ideally' within the last 30 years. I'm using it because thats the one we did in class

    something along the lines of.....usually formed in the evening when the ground radiates the heat absorbed during the day back into the air, warming the lower air causing water droplets to form, hydroscopic nuclei allows it to condense. Mist <1km visibility fog > 1km visibility

    basaltic and andesitic/rhyolitic is the easier option for those who failed on the quick quiz*

    Can anyone help me in knowing how much detail/depth (the general length) a case study must be referred to? I don't want to tell the examiner a story if you know what I mean.
