Volcanoes - eZine on the subjects volcanism and eruptions

Volcanoes are openings in the earth's crust from which lava and gases escape. Volcanic eruptions are an important part of the genesis and of our planet's ecosystem. Volcanism dominates the lives of millions people and created wide parts of the appearance of the earth.

In the blog you can read latest news about eruptions, photo galleries and videos of volcanic eruptions. Since 2015, Marc has been a board member of the "Volcanological Society e.V.".
