      The book presents guidelines to visiting 42 different volcanoes around the world. Guaranteed tours: Volcanoes of Europe (excl. Iceland and Jan Mayen) It is often called the "Cradle of Western Civilization," but it is also very much the cradle of volcanology. The earliest known documentation of volcanism is an Anatolian wall painting of Here we provide the first seismic evidence for continental crust at 75 km depth that is clearly connected with the European crust exactly along the transect where coesite was found at the surface. Our data also provide evidence for a thick suture zone with downward-decreasing seismic velocities, demonstrating that the European lower crust

        The U.S. Geological Survey's Volcanoes and Current Activity Alerts map shows the location and activity levels of all volcanoes in the United States. The map allows for filtering based on both location and current volcano status. Each volcano is depicted by a small colored triangle with different colors indicating various volcano alert levels: Green = normal Yellow = advisory In general, archaeological pottery finds and architectural remains in the eastern part of the island appear to be more fragmented and more widely distributed than in the western part of the island. Due to the high seismicity in the region, the question has come up whether a correlation between seismic activity and distribution and preservation

        The earliest attempt to map seismic activity, and hence hazard, in the UK was made by O’Reilly (), and the (perhaps better known) map of Ballore () does show a division of the British Isles into distinct zones. However, at this early date, hazard could only be expressed in terms   the western Himalaya has experienced major earthquakes because it is seismically a very active region and falls in the zone of continental collision of the Indian and Eurasian plates (Chandra ). The seismic activity of this area is closely associated with the active faults and the regional tectonic features (figure 1) which include the
