Information on how you can be prepared for a volcanic eruption
Icelanders do prepare for Eruptions – A personal observation Author: Islander
Home: Thats the place where all new posts show up and where you end up when you only go to volcanocafe.wordpress.com. This is the most frequented place.
Welcome to Volcanocafe: was posted by Carl when the place first opened, you can find the idea behind all of this there, as well as some rules.
NEW Welcome to Volcanocafe now also contains the rules, the list of dragons, HELP and this explanation to the menu.
Dragons Hoard: Updated Treasury got renamed
It is a drop down menu, as you see.
International treasures: gives a list of vocano observatories outside Europe. Things are being added as they come up. I am not trying to collect all avaiable links worldwide, just those were some action is going on or is to be expected. Trying to have “all” would require checking tons of links ever so often and i just do not have the time for this.
Archive sorted by date published: selfexplaining
Archive sorted by topic: selfexplaining. Again i am not trying to store “all” links but this was designed to help finding older posts, for whatever reason.
Wonder what Bob is up to: Gives links, and papers to monitor or understand what is going on around El Hierro better.
Wonder what is going on in Iceland: Same as above, but this time with links and papers for Iceland.
Wonder whats going on in Santorini: Here you can find links and papers if Santorini should decide to be more active again.
Italian Job: Tons of Etna webcams and links to observatories and other pages regarding volcanic action in Italy. ( This page really needs more dedicated work by me )
In case some action starts to happen in some other place, and we on VC watch it closely, another menu point will be added here, so not to overwhelm the other archive pages.
Gems: Another drop down menu.
If you klick Gems directly, you end upon a page with beautiful images our readers took from webcams.
Gems without any relation to volcanoes: Here you could find how to change your avatar, how to make a video or a snapshot from a webcam, where to upload images, the links to how to do plots, or how to add a smiley and other things.
NEW AlanC´s riddles: A list of Alan´s evil riddles with the winners and answers and the momentary score. This will get a secondary menu as soon as the page gets too long.
NEW Sheepy Dalek, Name that Lava: A list with all published Name that Lava riddles, the score and the answers and more information of the different topics. This page grew 2 long and is now split up in NtL I – XX and XXI – . More pages will be added when the need arises.
NEW Special plots page: Shows examples to very nice plots by various “artists” and gives addresses where to find the newest ones by them.
NEW Microscopic images: Now this is my true baby. You can find SEM images from various volcanoes all sorted to a separate page. At the moment on El Hierro, Etna, Eyjafjallajökull, Grímsvötn, Kilauea, Merapi, Moubt Hood, Newberry Volcano, Novarupta, Puyehue-Cordón Caulle and the Soufrière Hills. More pages will hopefully be added when fresh ash gets sent. ( by you! ). The addresses and an introduction of the scopes and an instruction how they are used can be found on the main Microscopic images page.
NEW Comments by users: Comments just to good to get lost. They might later be imported into a post or page.
NEW VC. projects: Posts about special projects we plan to get done on VC go in here. Like Irpsits research on the different ash layers in his backyard and the SEM images.
Library: Must-read books for volcanophiles can be found here.
Crow`s nest: Has 2 bars in the drop down menu.
Volcano webcams: selfexplaining
Auroralinks: Is here because so many on VC love to watch auroras.
OT Regulars table: OT ( Off Topic ) posts goin here. After they first appeared in Home.
