GeoJeopardy! Fridays #76

Time for GeoJeopardy! Fridays, because school is over for the semester (at least for some of us).

- Volcanoes -

The names of 2 types of lava flow, pahoehoe & aa, come from this language

  This Indonesian volcano just west of Java erupted in 1883 causing sea waves almost 130 feet high


 A 1963 underwater eruption began the formation of the island of Surtsey off this north Atlantic country


  In Roman mythology, this god of fire's blacksmith shops were located under Mount Etna


Paricutin Volcano in this country began in a farmer's field in 1943; within 6 days, it had a cinder cone 500 feet high

All the answers as well as any other previous GeoJeopardy! questions can be found over at my website by clicking the link.
