Book Description

February 9, 2011 0520268776 978-0520268777 Third Edition
This impressive scientific resource presents up-to-date information on ten thousand years of volcanic activity on Earth. In the decade and a half since the previous edition was published new studies have refined assessments of the ages of many volcanoes, and several thousand new eruptions have been documented. This edition updates the book’s key components: a directory of volcanoes active during the Holocene; a chronology of eruptions over the past ten thousand years; a gazetteer of volcano names, synonyms, and subsidiary features; an extensive list of references; and an introduction placing these data in context. This edition also includes new photographs, data on the most common rock types forming each volcano, information on population densities near volcanoes, and other features, making it the most comprehensive source available on Earth’s dynamic volcanism.

Editorial Reviews

Review

“Highly recommended.”
(C. L. Hebblethwaite Choice 2011-06-29)

“This book is the book to have if volcanoes are your thing. . . . A useful addition in any scientific library.”
(Helen Ashton Emerald Journal 2012-01-01)

From the Inside Flap

"Volcanoes of the World compiles and lists all of earth's eruptions into one primary scientific source. It is a fundamental research tool and the last word on many issues. There is nothing else like it."—William I. Rose, Michigan Technological University

"Volcanoes of the World stands alone. To my knowledge (as a practicing volcanologist for more than 4 decades), there are no competing works in the scientific literature comparable in purpose, scope, and scholarship."—Robert Tilling, Volcano Science Center, U.S. Geological Survey
