The eruption of the Soufrierere Hills Volcano, which began in 1995, is one of the most dramatic volcanic events of recent decades. Large parts of the island of Montserrat have been rendered uninhabitable and most of the country's population has been displaced. Over the past two decades, the volcano has shown a wide variety of geological phenomena some of which had never been witnessed anywhere else or on such a large scale within historical times. In this volume, staff and colleagues of the Montserrat Volcano Observatory have gathered a collection of images that depict the volcanic eruption. Extended captions provide additional insight into the processes and dynamics of this spectacular eruption.
