Eruptions that shook the world by Clive Oppenheimer( Book )

21 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What does it take for a volcanic eruption to really shake the world? Did volcanic eruptions extinguish the dinosaurs? Did they help humans to evolve and conquer the world, only to decimate their populations with a super-eruption 73,000 years ago? Did they contribute to the ebb and flow of ancient empires, the French Revolution and the rise of fascism in Europe in the 19th century? These are some of the claims made for volcanic cataclysm. Volcanologist Clive Oppenheimer explores rich geological, historical, archaeological and palaeoenvironmental records (such as ice cores and tree rings) to tell the stories behind some of the greatest volcanic events of the past quarter of a billion years. He shows how a forensic approach to volcanology reveals the richness and complexity behind cause and effect, and argues that important lessons for future catastrophe risk management can be drawn from understanding events that took place even at the dawn of human origins" A spellbinding exploration of the history's greatest volcanic events and their impacts on the history of humankind.--

Volcanic degassing( Book )

13 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Humans have long marvelled at (and feared) the odorous and colourful manifestations of volcanic emissions, and, in some cases, have harnessed them for their economic value. The degassing process responsible for these phenomena is now understood to be one of the key factors influencing the timing and nature of volcanic eruptions. This book provides a compilation of 23 papers that investigate the behaviour of volatiles in magma, the feedbacks between degassing and magma dynamics, and the composition, flux, and environmental, atmospheric and climatic impacts of volcanic gas emissions
