In this paper the Soufriere Hills Volcano will be analyzes in several different parts; an introduction to the Soufriere Hills volcano, the composition of the magma and lava in the volcano, other characteristics of the magma and lava, ash production from eruptions, pyroclastic flows, volcanic activity before the 1995 eruption, the 1995 eruption, cyclic activity within the volcano, and potential hazards of the Soufriere Hills volcano.
Soufriere Hills volcano is located in the south central part of the British overseas territorial island of Montserrat near the northern end of the Lesser Antilles volcanic arc in the West Indies (Young et al., 1998). The island of Montserrat is comprised of a number of volcanic centers that range…

The study will be anchored on the following theories:
