Trader Mountain is a small dacitic stratocone-like feature with an extrusive dome; lava flows dip away from the center in all directions (Chris Nye, oral commun., 2007). Wilson and others (1995) alternatively described Trader Mountain as a hypabyssal dacite plug, and report a potassium-argon age of 0.98+/- 0.05 Ma (F.H. Wilson and Nora Shew, unpub. data, 1988).

Land of Colors
: We still have spots free on the tours to Kamchata's volcanoes in Aug & Sep 2020! Both tours will be accompanied by a volcanologist from our team. A country full of colors and adventures is waiting for you!
Bromo volcano photos
: Bromo is one of Indonesia's most visited volcanoes. It is the most active vent inside the huge Tengger caldera and erupts every few years.
Volcano Special Tours
: We organize tours to particularly active volcanoes and during ongoing eruptions for extended observation time from various viewpoints. These trips, exclusively for very small groups, are often announced only at short notice and require fast travel and flexibility. Each trip is accompanied by a volcanologist from our team. Examples include: Kilauea (Hawai'i), Colima (Mexico), Krakatau and many others.
Volcanic crisis at Sakurajima - updates
: A strong earthquake swarm and increased inflation were detected in August 2015 and triggered authorities to raise the alert level, as volcanologists think that a larger eruption could follow. News and updates on the events can be found on this page.
