      The Voice of this Stone: Learning From Volcanic Disasters Around the World

      In The Voice of This Stone (Carpe Diem), a respected volcanologist with five decades of scientific study and boots-on-the-ground experience shares his expert knowledge. Through more than a dozen case studies from around the globe, Kevin Scott offers chilling details about what happened before, during, and after infamous volcanic cataclysms. During his lengthy career as a field geologist with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), Scott traveled extensively to visit sites that were dramatically altered by forces within the earth. Scott’s case studies highlight some of the best known events and advance warnings regarding future episodes. By deciphering the histories of other disasters, Scott proposes, lives can and will be spared.
