Volcanic eruptions are some of the most spectacular and destructive natural events. Antarctica is home to more than one hundred volcanoes some of which are entirely buried beneath the ice sheet. Some of these volcanoes are active and have attracted many explorers and scientists.
The new book "Antarctic Volcanism: Explore the Remotest Volcanoes of the Planet!" tells you all about the volcanoes located in Antarctica, how scientists are able to study them and what happens when a volcano erupts under the ice. The book was created by AntVolc, the SCAR Antarctic Volcanism Expert Group which studies volcanic processes. You can learn more about AntVolc here: https://scar.org/science/antvolc/home/
