Introducing Volcanology A Guide to Hot Rocks

ISBN 9781906716226 
Dougal Jerram answers the questions: What are volcanoes? What other volcanic activity is there? How do volcanoes relate to plate tectonics and the movement of continents? What are eruptions and why do they occur? How have volcanoes affected the earth’s climate? Can we predict eruptions? He also describes the most notable eruptions in history and their effect. Copiously illustrated throughout Introducing Volcanology is a concise and accessible introduction to the science of hot rocks for those with an adult curiosity and for those contemplating a course of formal study. As with sister volumes, technical terms are kept to a minimum and a glossary is provided covering the whole subject from ash to zeolites. Dougal Jerram is an earth scientist and director of Dougal EARTH Ltd, where he works with the media, industry, universities and schools on a wide variety of projects. He taught at Durham University for thirteen years, latterly as a Senior Lecturer.
