Volcano Discovery


Volcano Discovery is a website that provides information on all things related to the lithosphere. It is run by a team of geologists based in Europe, Indonesia and Hawaii who work closely with international scientists from volcanological institutes and observatories all over the world. Together they have written a book ‘Volcano Discoveries: A Photographic Journey Around the World’, which they use to promote the various tours to active volcanoes that they offer on Volcano Discovery. Tour locations include Stromboli and Mnt. Etna in Sicily. 

It has an entire area dedicated to educating people on the causes and effects of earthquakes and volcanoes. They have a forum for the public to upload their own videos and photos of earthquakes or volcanoes that they have come across.  A key feature of the site is its Interactive Global Map of Active Volcanoes and recent Earthquakes. It also provides a breakdown of each eruption and quake.

  1. This is really cool, it’s interesting to see the different experiences and types of volcanoes in each area and find patterns or similarities between locations.

  2. It’s interesting how the websites that you and Sydney found both blend physical geography and tourism. This map opened my eyes to how volcanic eruptions and earthquakes really are a daily occurrence. It must be a lot of hard work to log all these earthquakes!

  3. This map seems like a great resource with which to educate on the relation between fault lines, earthquakes, and volcanoes. It is cool to see the outliers that represent hotspots too.

  4. It is interesting how the site combines ecotourism and information on earthquakes and volcanoes in one location. The fact that scientists from around the world were able to create a “Photographic Journey” is really cool and can help people get a global perspective on natural sites like volcanoes.
