2018 Volcanoes in Review
Thanks to Jake and Mari of the Grand Solar Minimum YouTube channel we have an excellent overview of all significant volcanic eruptions of the year.
Out of an estimated 1 500 active volcanoes, on average 50 – 70 erupt every year, spewing steam, ash, toxic gases, and lava.
There were 77 confirmed eruptions at some point during 2018 from 71 different volcanoes in 25 countries; 36 of those were new eruptions that started in 2018.
Links to all the articles presented in the video can be found in our Volcanic eruptions category.
