Montserrat - Anatomy of a Volcano
At the end of 1994 the people of the island of Montserrat in the West Indies felt a series of alarming earthquakes, and crops near the volcano began to die. This was followed on 18th July 1995 by small steam explosions, the start of the volcanic eruptions that continue to this day. This project from the British Geological Survey looks at the physical features of the volcano such as the explosions, lava domes and pyroclastic flows as well as the human impact of the eruption, including the evacuations to the north of the island and the destruction of Plymouth, the capital of Montserrat.
