An Unusual Volcano - and Why it Matters

An Unusual Volcano - and Why it Matters 

A super correspondent brought THIS (and the next item) to my notice - thank you very much!!!

In January 2015, WEGA had a lecture by Dr. James Hammond, one of the geologists mentioned in the video, about the Mt Paektu volcano on the borders of China and North Korea. I remember his lecture as being very interesting. Obviously more work has been done on the data and the video goes into a lot of detail concerning the fate of the Pacific Plate as it descends into the mantle.

The video goes into what could be abstruse minutia but does it in an informative manner. Well worth watching.

If you spot something which you think should be on the blog, send me the link and you too could be a super correspondent!
