Barbara J. Feldman
Dear Barbara,

Happy Valentines Day to everyone … especially to my assistant Doug Lemmon who is in the hospital recovering from coronary artery bypass surgery. Doug has maintained my websites for more than eight years. Without his help, it is impossible for me to keep to my usual weekly schedule, impossible to keep publishing new stuff on the site every week. He is my right-hand man .. and I miss him terribly. If you want to send him a note, you can do so at www.ReplyToBarbara.com … and I will make sure he sees them as soon as he as able to sit at a computer again.

Getting back to Valentine’s Day , here’s a list of resources from the Surfnetkids network of site:

Volcanoes Printable (** for premium members only)

A volcano is an opening in the Earth’s surface that allows lava, hot gas, rock fragments and ash to explode from below. They are usually located at the edges of tectonic plates, where the plates are either shifting apart from each other, or moving toward each other. To view an active volcano is both exciting and terrifying. But no worries, this volcano tour will be conducted from the safety of your computer chair.

Annenberg Media: Volcanoes Can We Predict Volcano Eruptions?
"As the world’s population grows, more and more people are living in potentially dangerous volcanic areas. Volcanic eruptions continue as they have throughout most of geologic time posing ever-greater threats to life and property." Explore how volcanoes are formed, why they erupt, and how scientists are getting better at spotting the warning signs of an impending eruption. Be sure to watch the video clips scattered throughout the site.

Hawaii Space Grant: Volcanology
These five hands-on volcano activities for the classroom were created by teachers and librarians during a summer workshop at the University of Hawaii in 1994. Each activity includes printable instructions for both teachers and students. The activities include making a gelatin volcano to demonstrate how magma moves inside a volcano, and making cake batter lava to explain the structures that form as lava flows across a variety of landscapes.

San Diego State University: How Volcanoes Work
Sponsored by NASA and Project ALERT (Augmented Learning Environment and Renewable Teaching), How Volcanoes Work is an educational resource for high school and university students. Because the material builds on itself, it is recommended that visitors start at the beginning, and traverse through the site sequentially. Each of the six sections concludes with a self-scoring quiz, and for those up for the challenge, there’s the Spatter Patter Crossword. What’s a three-letter word for "finest pyroclast"?
