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.
