Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Beginning with a basic introduction to the geology and geography of volcanoes, this book continues by providing a comprehensive introduction to volcanology. The text discusses the subdisciplines in the field (including geochemistry, computer analysis, and geophysicists). It also provides basic information on the methods and tools used by volcanologists to predict future eruptions and analyze past ones. Other chapters include a brief history of volcanoes and their study, and a frank discussion of the hazards of the profession. Numerous sidebars provide supplemental information, brief profiles, and trivia. Final chapters speculate about the future of the field and outline the various options for careers in the field. A comprehensive glossary, an index, and suggestions for further reading make this book a good resource for aspiring scientists. A title in the series "Weird Careers in Science." 2006, Chelsea House, Ages 11 to 15.
