Montserrat's andesite volcano by David Lea ( Visual )
7 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Documents the eruption of Montserrat's andesite volcano from its beginnings in 1995, telling not only the story of the eruption, but also looking to the major volcanic processes of andesite volcanoes. It describes the products and effects of such eruptions, introduces modern methods of monitoring an active volcano, and shows the human consequences of volcanic activity on a small island community

Santorini Volcano by Timothy H Druitt ( Book )
1 edition published in 2000 in Undetermined and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Santorini has long fascinated geologists, with some important early work on volcanoes being conducted there. Since 1980, research groups at Cambridge University, and later at the University of Bristol and Blaise Pascal University in Clermont-Ferrand, have collected a large amount of data on the stratigraphy, geochemistry, geochronology and petrology of the volcanics. The volcanic field has been remapped at a scale of 1:10,000. A remarkable picture of cyclic volcanic activity and magmatic evolution has emerged from this work. Much of this work has remained unpublished until now." "The Memoir synthesizes all the data from the Cambridge/Bristol/Clermont groups, and integrates published data from other research groups. It provides the latest interpretation of the tectonic and magmatic evolution of Santorini. It is accompanied by the new 1:10,000 full-colour geological map of the island."--BOOK JACKET
