About the Author

Elizabeth Rusch’s obsession with volcanoes began at age 13, when she watched the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens on television. Now she lives in Portland, Oregon, surrounded by Cascade volcanoes. She learned about the incredible work of the volcanologists in this book while researching Will it Blow?: Become a Volcano Detective at Mount St. Helen, which was a Washington Reads pick and a Natural History magazine best book for young readers. Liz’s other award-winning nonfiction titles for children include The Mighty Mars Rovers, a Junior Library Guild selection, and The Planet Hunter: The story behind what happened to Pluto. She has also published more than a hundred articles in magazines such as Smithsonian, Backpacker, and American Girl. Liz is the author of Mighty Mars Rovers, a Scientists in the Field book.

Tom Uhlman has been a freelance photographer for 25 years. He photographs lots of news and sporting events, but enjoys shooting pictures of wildlife and the natural world most of all. Visiting some of the most famous volcanos in the world and meeting the people who study them was a special treat. Tom's photographs can also be seen in upcoming Scientists in the Field book Park Scientists, and previously in Emi and the Rhino Scientist and The Bat Scientists.
