Other Scientific Information, Publications, Image Databases and Photo/Slide Sets Related to Volcanoes
Colima Database : This site include information on the eruptive history of the Colima Volcanic Complex, complete bibliographic reference of published works, and data from ongoing research from people participating in this initiative. A hazard map (compiled based on previous published works) is also available and it can be visualized with Google Earth. In addition pictures and movies of the volcano edifice, its ongoing activity and the volcanic deposits are available.The mapserver section is still under construction, and the purpose is to have direct access to thematic maps (deposit distributions) and point data (i.e. stratigraphic section, sedimentology, rainfall data, geochemical composition, ages….etc). It is worth mentioning that all data presented in this site came only from published works, and that we are trying to keep all information up-to-date. In particular, anyone that has data, picture or publications not already included in our database, please feel free to send the information and we will include it in the online database.
- EOS IDS Volcanology Team Home Page:
A Global Assessment of Active Volcanism, Volcanic Hazards, and Volcanic Inputs to the Atmosphere from the Earth Observing System. Providing information about the project activities of the NASA Earth Observing System (EOS) Interdisciplinary Science (IDS) Investigation Volcanology Team. EOS is a series of polar-orbiting remote-sensing satellites planned for launch starting in 1998 and spanning a period of at least 15 years. EOS is a major component of NASA's Mission to Planet Earth.
- Fascination Volcano! Contains a large selection of volcano photos, and scientific background information about the volcano of Santorini, Greece. Offers tours to volcanoes as well.

- Global Volcano Model
GVM is an international network that aims to create a sustainable, accessible information platform on volcanic hazard and risk. GVM will provide systematic evidence, data and analysis of volcanic hazards and risk on global, regional and local scales, and will develop the capability to anticipate future volcanism and its consequences. GVM has initiated as a partnership of 11 research institutes and organisations in the USA, Japan, Singapore, Italy, New Zealand and the UK, as well as three commercial partners from the insurance sector. GVM involves already well-established and widely known volcanological programs and networks, including the Global Volcano Program of the Smithsonian Institution, VHub, WOVO, WOVOdat and VOGRIPA (volcanic hazards database). GVM has been endorsed by IAVCEI. GVM complements other international natural hazards partnerships such as Global Earthquake Model. We invite volcanologists worldwide to browse the site and find out more about what GVM is about and how you might become involved.
- Granular Volcano Group
The ultimate site for understanding granular flows, granular processes, fluid dynamic, supercomputer
modeling, and grain-size analysis in Volcanology, Geophysics, and Physics.
- Images of Volcanoes with Maurice and Katia Krafft (Images de Volcans)
Created by the Conservatoire Régional de l'Image with about 3000 slides (a selection out of 300000) and several video clips made by Maurice and Katia Krafft. This web-site is in French but will also be available in English by the end of 2005.
