      In this book, the author gives an account of the familiar violent aspects of volcanoes and the various forms that eruptions can take. He explores why volcanoes exist at all, why volcanoes occur where they do, and how examples of major historical eruptions can be interpreted in terms of physical processes. Throughout he attempts to place volcanism in a planetary perspective, exploring the pre Cited by:   It is the most volcanically active world in the solar system.

Space-age lunar and planetary missions offer us an unprecedented perspective on volcanism. Exploring Volcanos and Geysers Across the Solar System For decades, astronomers thought that the only geologically active object in our entire solar system was Earth. During the last 50 years of spacecraft studies, we now know that there are many locations where recent and even current volcanism can be found. This image, taken by the Cassini. Our tour of volcanoes in the solar system starts with the Earth. While we can't show every volcano in these pages, we will show examples of the different kinds of volcanoes found on the Earth, then move on to Venus Mars, Io, the Moon, & Mercury. The purpose of this Exploratour is to introduce the reader to particular topics related to volcanoes.

Yet volcanoes, in various forms, exist even here. Io – my favourite moon – is the most volcanic place in the solar system: its surface is pockmarked with over active volcanoes!
