ALASKA. YELLOWSTONE. CASCADES. HAWAII. USGS. The Big Picture. About the Photovolcanica Author. 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 texts may be rather challenging for readers lacking a basic knowledge of technical terms, yet explanation of such terms is widely available on the internet and the interested reader should rapidly be able to grasp at least the core concepts. Specific volcanoes are introduced in a way that is intended to give an all-round view of their history, eruptive mechanisms and impact on man. The second main topic covered in PhotoVolcanica is penguins. Volcanoes. Volcano Hazards Program.
How Volcanoes Work. Volcano eruptions. MVO - Home. Smithsonian Institution - Global Volcanism Program: Worldwide Holocene Volcano and Eruption Information. Index. 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! What is a volcano? We could say a volcano is a liquid rock plumbing system which extends from several 10's of kilometers depth to the earth's surface, and includes the near vent deposits of eruptions.
