A clearly presented list of links to the worlds active volcanoes. The volcanoes are broken up by region, making it easy to spot associations between volcanoes in the same general locations. This site is a good starting point for research if you know either the name of the volcano or the part of the Earth where it can be found. For general school project work it is also a good starting point, offering students a good range of volcanoes to research further.
Montserrat is an island with serious volcano problems! This page is the official report on the current situation at Soufriere Hills Volcano. There are archives of the weekly newsletter published by the Emergency Dept, information about the Volcano Observatory, pictures, daily scientific reports, maps and links to other related sites. The best Montserrat information site I have found, and a valuable educational resource.
Some interesting photographs of this famous volcano before and after its recent eruption. The collection of slides makes a visit here well worthwhile , and as an added bonus there is even a live video camera image from the Johnston Ridge Observatory, updated every 10 minutes.
Ring of Fire
An excellent map showing active volcanoes, plate boundaries and names, trenches, ridges and the 'Ring of Fire'. It's in colour too.
Mt Ruapehu is an active volcano in New Zealand. With the great catch phrase of "Forget java, we've got lava", this site provides the most recent information about the volcano and the latest video image from the volcano camera..
A mixture of links and original information, and even a search engine. The main page is split into sections, each covering a different aspect of the site, such as "Research and Information", "Interact with US", and "Volcano Indices". This is a good resource and ideal for school use.
