The eruption of the Soufrierere Hills Volcano, which began in 1995, is one of the most dramatic volcanic events of recent decades. Large parts of the island of Montserrat have been rendered uninhabitable and most of the country's population has been displaced.
Over the past two decades, the volcano has shown a wide variety of geological phenomena some of which had never been witnessed anywhere else or on such a large scale within historical times. In this volume, staff and colleagues of the Montserrat Volcano Observatory have gathered a collection of images that depict the volcanic eruption.
Extended captions provide additional insight into the processes and dynamics of this spectacular eruption.
“Island of Fire is a compilation of spectacular full-page photographs and captions detailing volcanic activity, scientific work, and the devastating effects of the volcano over the past 15 years.”
Montserrat’s own Sir Howard Fergus calls this book a “gripping collection of photographs of a mountain on fire” and that it “depicts the multiple moods and colours of the mountain and its environs and the baleful effects of the eruption on people and places.”
Island of Fire is currently available for purchase at the MVO on Amazon.co.uk and in regional bookstores.
