Some underwater volcanoes do not erupt and spit out giant blobs of lava, like all well-known gel lamps.Until now, scientists have divided the eruption in two categories: violent (explosive) and effusive. The first type involves adorable kids ejection of ash and rock fragments high into the atmosphere (for example, the eruption of Mount St. Helens in 1980). Second - soft red hot lava flows that irrigate the slopes of the volcano (this, for example, are constantly in Hawaii).
