My favorite volcano books

I’ve gotten a number of questions about volcano books as of late, so I thought I’d write a little post detailing my favorite volcano-related tomes, mostly pitched towards people without a geology-background, but some technical books for those of you who want the gory details (and be sure, they can be very, very gory). Pumice…

Mailbag, pictures and networking

If you have any questions about volcanoes, pictures of erupting (or not) volcanoes you’d like to share with me for Eruptions or have any general comments, please email me at . I’d love to hear from you and maybe your question can make it into my next mailbag post (which should hopefully be coming soon.)…

Monday Musings

Starting today and going until early August, you might see fewer posts on Eruptions than you’re accustomed. This is because I’m in the process of moving to Ohio to get set up to start my new job as an assistant professor at Denison University. I’m excited about the move, but as you can imagine, trying…

Interview on the Reef Tank

I haven’t done too many interviews in my day, so this was kind of fun. Wander on over to The Reef Tank and you can read my interview – mostly about the role of water in its many forms on Earth in understanding magmatism and volcanism. Thanks to Ava from The Reef Blog for the…

Eruptions turns 1!

Happy Birthday, Eruptions! Well, this definitely snuck up on me, but today marks the one-year anniversary for Eruptions! On May 1, 2008, I started this little blog and if anyone told me that a year later I’d be paid for the gig and getting 50,000 views a month, I would have called them nuts. So,…

Welcome to Eruptions

Welcome to version 2.0 of Eruptions, the blog on volcanic eruptions and volcano research in general. I’ve been writing this blog (starting over on WordPress) over the last year or so, but now it has found a new home here at ScienceBlogs. If you’re wondering what to expect if you’re new to Eruptions, I’ll be…

One of the more impressive areas I visited while in New Zealand was the Waimangu Valley near Mt. Tarawera (above). The valley itself was created by blast explosions (phreatic explosions) during the 1886 eruption of Mt. Tarawera. These eruptions cut right down the axis of the rhyolite domes (most of which erupted ~1305 A.D.) and…

Two weeks in New Zealand

Right as Yellowstone is getting interesting (or at least had signs of interest), Eruptions is going on a bit of a break again starting January 2. This time it is because I’m off to the North Island of New Zealand to do some field work. I’ll be headed to Tarawera (hopefully both the 1305 and 1886…

The Holiday Pause

Well, the holidays (and its visitors) have derailed my blogging ability, so in that note, I will officially declare the Eruptions holiday until 12/30. Merry Christmas (or whatever you celebrate) to all the Eruptions readers – and I just hit the 100,000 visit mark, a great Christmas gift for me! – and I’ll catch up with…
