1. What's the deadliest lava flow that exists? (Things like a'a, pyroclastic, etc.)
2. What's the Hotspot Theory and who proposed it?
3. True or False: A failed double-arm junction is an aulacogen.

1)Pyroclastic?
2)The idea that some island chains are created from plumes in the mantle that the lithosphere moves over; Tuzo Wilson
3)False

1. Pyroclastic surge, due to its low density of volcanic material (higher proportion of gases). They contain a lot of toxic gases, suffocating anything in its path moving quickly.
2. Proposed by Jason Morgan and J. Tuzo Wilson, the Hotspot Theory was to describe why some areas could have so much volcanic activity despite being located in the middle of a plate. Came up with the idea of mantle plumes sitting under a hotspot, which is an upwelling of abnormally hot rock in the Earth's mantle.
3. False; it's triple

I'll just assume I'm right.

Describe normal, reverse, and strike-slip faults. Include what type of stress they are caused by and what plate boundaries they are associated with.
