David Lea has documented the eruption from its beginnings in 1995, and his spectacular video images provide the backdrop for this unique, educational project. The film not only tells the story of the eruption, but also looks into the major volcanic processes of andesite volcanoes, describes the products and effects of the eruption, introduces modern methods of monitoring an active volcano, and shows the human consequences of volcanic activity on a small island community. Professor Steve Sparks of Bristol University (UK) explains the phenomena and then takes you on a video field trip where you will learn about the plate tectonic origin of andesite volcanoes, lava dome growth, the chemistry and mineralogy of andesite, pyroclastic flows, explosive eruptions, ash fall, debris avalanche, volcanic blasts, lahars and volcanic hazards. Outstanding video of each phenomenon is followed by explanations of the deposits, effects and hazards in the field. This educational video was created for university students taking introductory courses in geology, earth science, and environmental sciences. However the authors feel that it will be enjoyed by a much wider audience, interested in understanding volcanoes and appreciating these great spectacles of nature.
