The 3rd edition of the Smithsonian’s Volcanoes of the World will be available for distribution in January. This widely utilized (including lots of VW content!) scientific resource, by Lee Siebert, Tom Simkin, and Paul Kimberly, presents updated information on ten thousand years of volcanic activity on Earth. In the decade and a half since the previous edition was published new studies have refined assessments of the ages of many volcanoes, and several thousand new eruptions have been documented.
