The Volcano Adventure Guide by Rosaly Lopes (a planetary volcanism expert for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California) is a marvel for both amateur volcano enthusiasts and professional volcanologists. Written especially for those who desire to personally explore volcanoes without being foolish or taking reckless risks, chapters are packed with advice for preparing for a volcano trip, including how to avoid common dangers, contact details for societies and holiday companies offering volcano tours, geological and travel maps, tour descriptions of 42 different volcanoes and much more. As enjoyable for the armchair traveler as it is for the gung-ho enthusiast determined to see a volcano up close and personal, The Volcano Adventure Guide is a delight enhanced with full-color photographs cover to cover.
