This book describes and illustrates 100 volcanoes that are forceful reminders of the internal dynamics of our planet. Each example describes the geodynamic environment leading to its formation, as well as its structure and history: Island-Arc volcanoes (Alaska, Japan and Indonesia); Hot-spot volcanoes (Hawaii); Ocean-ridge volcanoes (Iceland); Continental-margin volcanoes (Americas); Continental Rift volcanoes (East Africa); The book, written by four science academics, also addresses the subject of predicting volcanic eruptions and how to minimise the risks posed by them.
