The Big Picture

Concept behind PhotoVolcanica.com The name PhotoVolcanica is intended to reveal the main focus of the site and is a hydrid between English and Latin terminology, meaning something like "photo of the volcano". However, the site is also dedicated to the wonderful and diverse Penguins that increasingly struggle to survive in the face of overfishing, habitat loss, introduced predators, etc. etc.... Whilst initially based almost solely on images, much of the site is now a highly illustrated encyclopaedia with extensive scientific referencing.

The Government of Montserrat, the Disaster Management Coordinating Agency (DMCA) and the MVO have adopted a Hazard Level System which has been used at the Soufrière Hills Volcano, Montserrat since August 1, 2008. The purpose of the system is to improve management of the ongoing eruption and to provide important information to the residents of Montserrat. Read more: Hazard level system
Smithsonian Institution - Global Volcanism Program: Worldwide Holocene Volcano and Eruption Information Smithsonian Institution - Global Volcanism Program: Worldwide Holocene Volcano and Eruption Information 11 November 2013 Lots of styling updates recently, the master eruption search works properly now (but filters are blocked pending further testing), and there is now a simple spreadsheet download of the Holocene Volcano List (under Volcano Info). 21 October 2013 GVP invites proposals for a Postdoctoral Fellow/Visiting Scientist who will use GVP and Department of Mineral Sciences resources (including VOTW 4.0) to study problems in volcanology important on a global/regional scale. Proposal review will begin 3 December 2013. Further information regarding this position is posted on the Mineral Sciences website.
Our Purpose: A primary focus of volcanology is to provide scientific and educational information that can lead to hazard mitigation. Michigan Tech's Volcanoes Page aims to provide information about volcanoes to the public and to complement other informational sites on the web. We started this site more than 20 years ago, when there were almost no other volcano sites--now there are lots, and many of them have far more resources. So we now aim to fill in spots that aren't covered elsewhere. Send your suggestions! Index Index
