Mystery Volcano Photo #27

Quiet weekend on the whole, volcano-wise, beyond the articles about the latest eruption at Karangetang. So, we’ll start this week with a new Mystery Volcano Photo. The last MVP was Tarawera in a shot I took from a road on the back side of the volcano, so that leaves the current standings looking like this:…

Mystery Volcano Photo #26

When we last left MVP, the latest entry actually did give people some trouble – but Don Crain ended up landing the winner at guess #15. The volcano is Ollagüe along the Chilean/Bolivian border. I took this shot from the road that comes up from the south towards Ollagüe (the town). Now, I have been…

Mystery Volcano Photo #25

OK, first off an apology for this week: I will be kind of crazy busy while in Davis – two papers to churn through so we can get them submitted sometime this summer, so blogging may be minimal. So, remember, whenever you hear people talk about how professors have it easy because they get the…

Mystery Volcano Photo #24

MVP 23 revealed … and 24 introduced! Mystery Volcano Photo #23 was, in fact, Middle Sister volcano in Oregon, part of the picturesque Three Sisters near Bend. Middle Sister is a partially eroded (by glaciers) composite volcano with a mix basaltic andesite to andesite lava flows and tephra deposits. Depending on who you speak with,…

Mystery Volcano Photo #23

We’ll try again with a finding a good Mystery Volcano Photo! The last MVP was Mt. Meru in Tanzania, submitted by Michael Dalton-Smith. Now, I thought this image was going to be a little harder than it turned out to be as the shot of Meru on Wikipedia is a very similar shot, but that…

Mystery Volcano Photo #22

Maybe I should be pleased that in the last Mystery Volcano Photo took a whole five guesses rather than one or two, so I count it as success! The correct guess was made by Dr. Boris Behncke, so that elevates him into a tie for first. Current Standings: The Bobs – 3 Don Crain –…

Mystery Volcano Photo #21

After last week’s attempt to revive Mystery Volcano Photo – and the discovery (by me, thanks to you readers) of Tin Eye – I’ve had to ponder how to continue. Well, I think the best thing to do is to try using reader images that hopefully aren’t hiding out on the web somewhere. So, that…

It has been a quiet week, volcanically-speaking that is. Maybe they’re all watching the World Cup, but there hasn’t been a lot of new and exciting news to report this week. So, I thought this might be a good time to bring back Mystery Volcano Photo! Now, for those of you just joining us, I…

Mystery Volcano Photo #19

It has been a while since I’ve posted a Mystery Volcano Photo, but here is a new one. Just a refresher on the current standings: The Bobs – 3 Don Crain – 3 gijs – 2 Boris Behncke – 2 volcanista – 1 Lockwood – 1 Elizabeth – 1 Ralph – 1 Anne – 1…
