Multimedia volcanoes

Virtual field trips made possible by the considerable ingenuity of their authors are excellent means of taking school children and even undergraduates to places well off limits or resources. Most are available only on CD or DVD, but those on the web are especially valuable for all with sufficient connection speed to use them. A Swiss educational organisation hosts the work of Italian volcanologists Roberto Carniel and Marco Fulle with Swiss teacher Jürg Alean.  They make it possible to experience volcanological life vividly, by ‘visiting’ the famous Stromboli, Ethiopia’s Erta Ale lava lake, explosive Montserrat in the Caribean and others.
