Baek du mountain in Korea Mount Baekdu, North Korea's highest mountain on the border with China, last erupted in 1903, but experts have warned that it may have an active core, citing topographical signs and satellite images. According to historical records, Baekdu was an active volcano. Major activity in the 960s created a caldera on its peak, whose circumference is nearly 14 kilometers with an average depth of 213 meters and maximum of 384 meters. On October 1, 2006, a Russian satellite found the surface temperature of the mountain notably higher than before. Recent earthquakes in China have deepened concerns over an eruption, with some Chinese experts setting the date as early as 2014 2014 is only 3 years left. I am from South Korea capital city Seoul. If Mount Baek du erupts, Seoul will not safe. There will be no place that is safe in Korea. This is really my concern. I am studying in America, but my family and friends live in Seoul, and I visit them every summer. However, I do not really belive in this theory. If Baek du was that much alive volcano, why isn’t happen before? Yes, it was, but the last eruption was 1000years ago. I do not think that it will erupt again since the last one was 1000 years ago. It passed too much time. In my knowledge, Korea is not earthquake country as Japan or California. There was no single earthquake in South Korea that powerful enough to people felt. I felt earthquake first

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
