Looking for a great Christmas gift? Finally, our new volcano book "Volcano Discoveries" is out: enjoy browsing 240 pages beautifully illustrated with photos, anecdotes and infos about volcanoes from around the world.
Written by geologists Ingrid Smet and Tom Pfeiffer, it is not only a summary of Tom's photographic work and travels during the past 15 years, but also a perfect introduction into the fascinating world of volcanoes for anyone interested, with or without background.
With great contributions from our friends and colleagues Marco Fulle, Martin Rietze and Jorge Santos!

We thank all directly or indirectly involved in this project, with a special thanks to the Simon and Thomas from New Holland Publishers for their great editorial work!
