English term or phrase: The place where this eruption takes place is a volcano.
Deep inside the earth's crust, the temperature is as high as 3000°C. Rock melts to form magma under this high temperature. When magma erupts (normally with gases and other pyroclastic debris) through the earth's surface it is called lava. The place where this eruption take place is a volcano. Hawaii's Mauna Loa is the largest volcano on earth. It's height is about 10 km from the earth crust, and it's volume is about 42000 cubic kilometers. It is said that largest volcano in our Solar System is the Olympus Mons on the planet Mars. It is about 27 km tall and over 520 km across. While volcanic eruptions are destructive, they benefit the Earth by adding minerals and nutrients to the soil. The lava flow from a volcano helps create and shape our landscapes when it hardens. Can you imagine how the world would be without volcanoes?

Jede Lösung die mir bis jetzt eingefallen ist, ist nicht wirklich elegant. Der Versuch das ganze in den vorgehenden Satz einzubauen, funktionierte nicht wirklich, das Ganze wurde zu kompliziert.
Die Lava bricht aus einem Vulkan aus.
Ideen?
