Eaed Mohamad Al-Momani


This study highlights the denominations used for currently dormant volcanoes, as well as the names used for some of them in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan as a case study. This study also explains the nature of these volcanoes natural phenomena playing a major role in most geological processes contributing in the formation and development of the earth crust. On the other hand, this study has focused on identifying and analyzing some currently dormant volcanoes sites and their extension to the surface. This study used computerized programs, such as the World Geodetic System (WGS84), as well as the (ERDASIMAGINE) system to determine the volcanic sites in order to collect and analyze data. It has reached a few findings and recommendations regarding the denomination of volcanoes, the population’s safety guarantee, the resources of such areas, as well preserving the country’s landmarks
