Eruptions, Earthquakes & Emissions

Every Major Eruption, Earthquake and Emission in the last 50 Years on an Animated Map

The Smithsonian's "Eruptions, Earthquakes, & Emissions" web application (or "E3") is a time-lapse animation of volcanic eruptions and earthquakes since 1960. It also shows volcanic gas emissions (sulfur dioxide, SO2) since 1978 — the first year satellites were available to provide global monitoring of SO2.

Click the image and a map of the world appears on anew page. It may take a little time to load but the wait is worthwhile! The amount of data in this animation is incredible!
