I wonder how the geologist community om tumblr felt after Steven Universe got a big following here.

Like one day you’re looking at pretty pictures of stones formed in clams and the next day it’s a lady with a pointy nose.

It is important to know the difference between geology and geography!! As an aside- geology is much more than just looking at rocks, and geography is much more than simply knowing where things are located on a map. Both disciplines are vibrant fields of research that pursue questions related to how our Earth formed, evolved, and how humans are interacting with it now! Although geology and geography are fundamentally different fields of science, there is significant overlap. One such overlap is the appreciation for puns, which is nearly ubiquitous among geoscientists of all types! Let’s all take a moment to appreciate the geologists and geographers in our lives :)

No more bullying Roku for fighting a volcano. Learn about blast radiuses and ash cover. (Strap in fellas, this is a long one.)

This is a map of the ash cover in the US if Yellowstone exploded today. There would be a layer of ash covering the entire country and a large portion of the western US would be suffocated. 

Now, Roku’s island is no where near as big as Yellowstone so here’s the ash covering of Mount Vesuvius (the volcano that destroyed Pompeii) because I think it’s more comparable to the size of Roku’s Island.

This is a much smaller volcano and it STILL destroyed four cities and had an smoke plume of about 25 miles.

Here’s a map of the Fire Nation that I added a estimated scale to for a better visual. 

The Fire Nation is a rather small nation, Roku’s Island and Caldera City are only 100 miles apart, so if the volcano had been allowed to erupt it would have covered most of the nearby island in ash and probably would have killed hundreds of people. 

Honestly I’m underestimating the size of Ruko’s volcano because Sozin said he could see the plume of smoke and could feel the rumbling when he was a hundred miles away, but I don’t actually have any authority on this topic. If any geologists what to come for me on this I would appreciate it. 

TL:DR Volcanoes of any size will fuck your shit up and if you’re gonna bully Roku do it for the right reasons, like when he let Sozin live after he had the audacity to breath in imperialist.
