Introduction to Plate Tectonics
: The Earth's upper, rigid layer is broken into several plates which are in constant motion to one another. Most earthquakes and volcanoes occur as result of these plate boundaries.
Mayon volcano photos
: Mayon on Luzon Island, towering above Legazpi city is famous for being one of the most perfectly symmetrical stratovolcanoes in the world. It is also one of the most active and most dangerous volcanoes (not only) in the Philippines.
: We have published several volcano calendars over the years: usually, we use photos taken by us or our participants during our recent volcano tours and expeditions. A perfect gift if you're a fan of volcanoes!
