About this book

Language: Danish

Periodically volcanoes attract much attention: they stop air traffic, they destroy farmland for miles, they cover cities and roads with lava, they affect the weather – and they fascinate with their beautiful violence.

In this book geologist Paul Martin Holm from the University of Copenhagen describes volcanic formation and activity, the prediction of volcanic eruptions and the harm caused by eruptions. First of all, however, he presents a series of famous volcanoes and volcanic eruptions from Eyjafjallajökull in Iceland and the many volcanoes of the Hawaiian Islands, to Vesuvius and the mighty volcanoes that arose in connection with the North Atlantic formation.

The book is an updated and expanded version of a book first published in 2012. New in the second edition include the story of the incredible lava field Holuhraun, created by the volcanic eruption in 2014-2015, which is the strongest that Iceland has experienced since 1783. The author also describes the eruption of the the volcano Picos on the island of Fogo, Cape Verde in 2014-15.

Summary in Danish:
Med jævne mellemrum tiltrækker vulkaner sig stor opmærksomhed: De stopper flytrafik, de ødelægger landbrugsjord i miles omkreds, de dækker byer og veje med lava, de påvirker vejret – og de fascinerer med deres smukke voldsomhed.

I denne bog fortæller geologen Paul Martin Holm fra Københavns Universitet om vulkaners opståen og aktivitet, om forudsigelse af vulkanudbrud og om de skader, udbruddene kan forårsage. Først og fremmest præsenterer han dog en stribe berømte vulkaner og vulkanudbrud, lige fra Eyjafjallajökull på Island over Hawaiiøernes mange vulkaner til Vesuv og de vældige vulkaner, der opstod i forbindelse med Nordatlantens dannelse.

Bogen er en opdateret og udvidet version af en udgivelse, der udkom første gang i 2012. Nyt i 2. udgaven er bl.a. historien om den utrolige lavamark Holuhraun, skabt af vulkanudbruddet i 2014-2015, der er det kraftigste, Island har oplevet siden 1783. Forfatteren fortæller også om vulkanen Picos hærgen på Kap Verdeøen Fogo i 2014-15.
