Guest Videos: Mount Erebus


We don’t usually think of Antarctica as “fire and ice” country, but it has many volcanoes, including Mount Erebus, which erupts fairly frequently and hosts a major lava lake (shown above from space).

Volcanologists also study the volcano’s gases and ejecta from its explosions.

More information about research at Mount Erebus. (I can’t find a working link to the Mount Erebus Volcano Observatory.)
