of Geological Sciences, San Diego State University is an excellent,
well-designed and rich educational resource on nearly all aspects of
volcanology. Award winning and of text-book quality, it is easy to navigate

Contains excellent photographic illustrations of volcanic features and a well
compiled list of links. Highly recommended.
- SOL - Stromboli On Line
An amazing site, originally dedicated to Stromboli and its seismic
activity monitored by the R. Carniel and colleagues from Udine university,
has now grown into a rich resource of information, photos and videoclips on
many other active volcanoes as well. Most of its material, of course, is
still on Etna and Stromboli. Created and maintained by Jürg Alean and Roberto Carniel,
this site comes furthermore in 3
languages (English, German and Italian). Enjoy some of the very best
volcano photos available, mostly by J. Alean and M. Fulle (a friend and my
'teacher' in volcano photography) !!
