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.
Cerro Tipas (also known as Cerro Walter Penk) volcano is a massive volcanic complex in NW Argentina located immediately SSW of its better known neighbor, 6887-m-high Nevados Ojos del Salado. Tipas is the third highest active volcano in the world. It is poorly known because of its isolated location.
The Tipas volcanic complex contains craters, cones, lava domes and lava flows covering an area of 25 sq km. It has a youthful morphology and it is thought that its latest eruptions were less than 10,000 years ago.
Current activity of Bardarbunga volcano, Iceland: An intense seismic crisis started at Bárdarbunga volcano on 16 August 2014 and is continuing at the time of writing (23 Aug). It may or may not lead to a volcanic eruption, possibly under the Vatnajökull ice cap.
