The Volcano Adventure Guide: Excellent information and background for anyone wishing to visit active volcanoes safely and enjoyably. The book presents guidelines to visiting 42 different volcanoes around the world.
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!
Eruptions from Stromboli's NE crater continue to be impressive, with heights reaching up to 200-300 m above the vent. The attached picture is an example of a moderate explosion we observed during our ongoing tour yesterday evening from a viewpoint on Bastimento, at about the same elevation from a few 100 m to the east.

Igneous or magmatic rocks: The most primitive rock type forms when magma (molten rock) solidifies - either inside the earth (plutonic rocks) or during volcanic eruptions (volcanic rocks). A short overview.
