ResultsCut-out 3D model of Soufrière Hills Volcano Provided by British Geological Survey Classroom activity Description:
The Soufrière Hills Volcano on the Caribbean island of Montserrat began erupting in 1995 and, in June 1997. Pyroclastic flows claimed the lives of 19 people and led to two-thirds of the population fleeing the island.
This model (not to scale) from the British Geological Survey shows how the volcano is formed from the subducting tectonic plates, and the lava dome with a pyroclastic flow coming from it.
