(* = Graphable)



For other meanings of Ve, see Ve (disambiguation).

In Norse mythology, Ve was one of the Aesir and a son of Bestla and Bor. His brothers were Vili and Odin. He was known for having given humanity the powers of speech and their external senses. According to Loki, in Lokasenna, he had an affair with Odin's wife, Frigg. Together with Vili, he constructed Yggdrasil, the world-ash.

In Voluspa, at the creation of the first man (Ask) and woman (Embla), Höner and Lodur help Odin. In Gylfaginning, Vili and Ve are mentioned instead. As Snorri knew Voluspa, it is thus very likely that Lodur was another name for Ve.

USGS Photo Glossary: VEI (450 words)
The VEI uses several factors to assign a number, including volume of erupted pyroclastic material (for example, ashfall, pyroclastic flows, and other ejecta), height of eruption column, duration in hours, and qualitative descriptive terms.
They soon learned, however, that the amount of sulfur dioxide gas injected high into the atmosphere (which is not necessarily related to the size of an eruption) was a critical factor in determining the climatic impact of volcanic eruptions.
Today, the VEI is primarily used to estimate the relative size of an explosive eruption.
