Mt. St Helens eruption Featured 16 May 2003 Print

Mt. St Helens eruption

Plinian column of ash, hot gases and pulverised rock shooting out of Mt. St. Helens volcano, Washington State, USA, during the second eruption on 22nd July 1980, two months after the first major blast of May 18th. Deep dendritic gullies, caused by pyroclastic flow, (a thick soup of hot gas and ash spilling over the brim of the volcano, or mudflows from glacial melt) trace their way down the mountainside. Mt. St. Helens forms part of the Cascade Range, an almost unbroken chain of geologically young volcanoes, running from southern British Columbia, Canada, to northern California, USA

Sun structure Featured 16 May 2003 Print

Sun structure

Sun's interior. Computer model of the variations in the speed of sound in the Sun, based on data taken by the SOHO (Solar and Heliospheric Observatory) spacecraft. The colours in the cut- away portion of the Sun show the observed speed of sound relative to the speed predicted by a theoretical solar model. Red regions have a higher speed of sound than expected, and in blue regions it is lower than expected. This indicates that the red and blue regions are respectively hotter and cooler than predicted. Data gathered by SOHO's MDI (Michelson Doppler Imager) and VIRGO (Variability of Solar Irradiance and Gravity Oscillations) instruments
