Volcano Week 4

Monday, 27th July 2009 by

It makes the team here at GSS feel positively web-ancient, but today sees the return of our very-long-running series Volcano Week!

Now in its fifth year1 Volcano Week2 is devoted to sights created by the process of molten rock, mud, hot ash and/or gases escaping from craters, lava fields, cracks, fissures, openings or ruptures in the Earth’s (or any other planet’s) surface or crust.

Um, where was I?

Volcanoes. A week of them. You get the picture.

In the meantime, refresh your memory with our volcano posts from previous years:

You can also browse Wikipedia’s exhaustive lists of volcano locations (we’re still accepting suggestions for posts later in the week!), or finally, try these Google Earth layers, one of which shows current volcanic activity.

  1. Yes OK, we did skip 2007, so fourth 

  2. Yes, yes, for the first two years it was indeed just Volcano Day
