Eruptions is a new volcanology blog run by Dr Erik W. Klemetti, who is a post-doctoral scholar in geology (igneous petrology/volcanology) at UC-Davis.

Dr Klemetti’s aim is ‘to try to summarize eruptions as they occur, translate some of the volcanic processes that are happening and comment on the reports themselves’. The blog began on 2 May, which was nice timing because on the same day Chaitén erupted. Excellent coverage of that eruption ensued.

Highly recommended: Eruptions.
