Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Volcanologist or not, this will make you fall in love with volcanoes Phenomenal aerial photographs of volcanoes from North America to Australia are published in this book. There are also many pictures of mud pots and geysers from around the world. If you are genuinely captivated by the different creases and colours that shape our planet, this book is for you. I bought it from my local Chapters store for $20 (on a promotion sale) so if you can find it at a similar price, I definitely recommend buying this! It will make a great addition to your coffee table.

About the Author

Bernhard Edmaier (b.1957) trained as a civil engineer and geologist and has photographed the earth?s surface for over 15 years. The result of meticulous planning and research, his extraordinary travels take him from the deserts of Africa to the ice plains of Iceland and the coral cliffs of the Great Barrier Reef. His abstractly beautiful compositions offer an awe-inspiring view of our planet. Dr. Angelika Jung-Hüttl (b.1957) is a geologist and writer who contributes to a number of different newspapers and popular scientific magazines. She has worked and traveled with Edmaier for 10 years and has written several books on volcanoes, ice and glaciers.
