Geology Fun Fact - Fast Growing Volcanoes

Geology Fun Fact

Myth: Volcanoes grow slowly. 

While often true in terms of human perception (not in geological terms) there are some notable exceptions. One of the fastest growing volcanoes in recorded history is a cinder cone that came up in a farmer’s field in Mexico. The volcano, Par√≠cutin, grew over 336 meters in 1943 when it first appeared.
