About this book

Comprehensive introduction to European volcanoes. Divided into regional chapters, it reflects both the variety of the volcanic structures, forms and eruptions, and the stimulus to the prolific research that they have inspired over the centuries. In each chapter, the causes, initiation and growth of the volcanoes are outlined, and special attention is drawn to highlights of their behaviour and their impact on the peoples around them. Regional areas covered include the Mediterranean, the Atlantic, and recent volcanoes of France and Germany.
