The authors examine the familiar violent aspects of volcanoes and the various forms that eruptions can take. They also explore why volcanoes occur where they do, and how examples of major historical eruptions can be interpreted in terms of physical processes. They attempt to place volcanism in a planetary perspective, exploring the pre-eminent role of submarine volcanism on Earth and the stunning range of volcanic phenomena revealed by spacecraft exploration of the Solar System. The new edition reflects new research findings and new eruptions.
