Volcano and photo tour to Java, Indonesia
: Visit Java's famous volcanoes: Krakatau, Merapi, Bromo, Semeru, Ijen and others, crossing Java from west to east. This study and photography trip for a small exclusive group is one of our classic and best tours.
Climbing Stromboli volcano
: Stromboli provides one of the most remarkable opportunities to watch volcanic eruptions from close: a natural ridge located 150 m above the active vents. A classic and all-time favorite tour by anyone interested in seeing active volcanoes!
Divergent plate boundaries in oceans
: Two ocean plates move apart from each other. Hot upwelling mantle material forms magmas that continuously produce new oceanic crust. An ocean widens.
Top 20 quakes in 2016
: Several magnitude 7 quakes occurred in 2016 (but none above M8): Papua New Guinea, NZ, Ecuador, Solomon Islands, Sumatra, Chile, Alaska and others - nearly all major earthquakes were located near active subduction zones.
