There are 5,976 volcano images available on the GVP website, including 4,240 in these new galleries with updated captions and keywords, and at a larger size.
In order to understand what a volcano might do in the future, volcanologists study the past deposits to understand what they did in the past. Field work includes studying current eruptions and working with monitoring equipment, and collecting data in the field that can be further examined using additional research techniques.
