Here is an outstanding collection of information by Smithsonian Institution volcanologists summarizing 1,511 volcanoes active in the last 10,000 years--including coordinates, heights, types, known eruptive histories, and behavioral characteristics. Each region is introduced with a detailed map and a short description of its geography, history, and tectonic setting.
From 8,000 BC through 1993, nearly 8,000 eruptions are arranged in chronolog- ical order, with date, duration volume, and explosive magnitude listed in a tabular format. A gazetteer cross-references more than 10,000 volcano names, feature names, and synonyms. An extensive bibliography lists sources chronologically by region.
This volume is an important reference of special interest to volcanologists, historians, anthropologists, hazard specialists, geothermal researchers, climatol- ogists, and anyone else interested in natural events that have impacted our planet in the last few thousand years.About the Author:
