The Global Volcanism Program Weekly Volcanic Activity Report is ten years old! The first report covered 1-7 November 2000, and reported on activity at Bezymianny, Etna, Guagua Pichincha, Karangetang, Kilauea, Popocatépetl, Soufrière Hills and Tungurahua. Ten years on, 220 volcanoes have featured in the report, and the report is viewed on average 35,000 times every week. For everyone who takes an interest in what the world’s volcanoes are up to, the Weekly Volcanic Activity Report is both fascinating reading and an essential source of information.
So, happy birthday to the report and congratulations to Weekly Report Editor Sally Kuhn Sennert (who talked about her work in a great interview at Eruptions a little while ago) and all her colleagues for their hard work. And, very importantly, a big thank-you, too, to all the volcano-watchers all over the world who contribute the information about volcanic activity without which there would be no report. As Sally writes on a posting to the VOLCANO list today: ‘We appreciate the continuing support of the volcanological community. Thank you to those who have sent reports, photographs, and comments. Your contributions are appreciated!’
There’s a special page to mark the anniversary, featuring selected highlights of the last ten years, on the Global Volcanism Program website.
