      In this project you will research a specific volcano and then create a resume for that
volcano. Your resume will describe its location (longitude, latitude), physical characteristics,
eruption history and additional information of interest. Writing should be in complete sentences
and in the first person (I, my, me). You are also required to include references for the
information on your resume.
      The chart below compares a personal resume to a volcano resume and gives the
