Explore Italian Volcanoes __ You will explore the volcanoes of Southern Italy including Vesuvius, Etna, Campi Flegrei, and Stromboli Vulcano. - illustrated - From University of Rome - http://vulcan.fis.uniroma3.it/ 


Hawaii Center for Volcanology __ Learn about volcanoes in general and Hawaiian volcanoes specifically. You will find general information, how the Hawaiian Islands were formed and information about current eruptions. - illustrated - From Hawaiian Center for Volcanology - http://www.soest.hawaii.edu/GG/hcv.html 

How Volcanoes Work __ "This website is an educational resource that describes the science behind volcanoes and volcanic processes. The site is sponsored by NASA under the auspices of Project ALERT (Augmented Learning Environment and Renewable Teaching). It is intended for the education of university students of geology and volcanology and teachers of earth science. Each section in the menu builds upon previous sections. For users who lack fundamental knowledge of volcanological principles and terms, it is best to proceed through the website in a progressive manner. More advanced users will find each section self-contained and can navigate through the website as their interest dictates." - illustrated - From San Diego State University - http://www.geology.sdsu.edu/how_volcanoes_work/ 


Lahars __ "For field geologists who need to interpret the origin of a layer of rock from from its field characteristics, a lahar may be defined as a debris flow composed of a significant component of volcanic materials..." Learn how they are formed and what their dangers are. - illustrated - From University of California, Santa Barbara - http://volcanology.geol.ucsb.edu/lahar.htm

Smithsonian Institution - Global Volcanism Program: Worldwide Holocene Volcano and Eruption Information __ "The Global Volcanism Program (GVP) seeks better understanding of all volcanoes through documenting their eruptions--small as well as large--during the past 10,000 years. The range of volcanic behavior is great enough, and volcano lifetimes are long enough, that we must integrate observations of contemporary activity with historical and geological records of the recent past in order to prepare wisely for the future. The contemporary focus of the GVP is evident in the central role we play in the rapid dissemination of on-going eruption reports from local observers through our monthly Bulletin of the Global Volcanism Network. Our retrospective effort to document Earth's volcanic eruptions of the last 10,000 years has led to development of comprehensive databases and an archive of relevant maps, photos, and documents. Through these two complementary approaches we attempt to provide a context in which any individual volcano's benefits and dangers can be usefully assessed." - illustrated - From Smithsonian Institution - http://www.volcano.si.edu/
