    Contains an extensive compilation of data and images for the volcanoes of Indonesia, one of the world's most active volcanic regions. A map-driven interface allows selection of each of the 149 active volcanoes of Indonesia and adjacent islands. Users can view data about individual volcanoes, chronologies of known eruptions in the past 10,000 years, more than 400 images, over two decades of current eruption summaries from monthly Smithsonian bulletins, and GVP's petrologic, bibliographic, and map database. Also contained on this Cd is Eruptions Through Time, a dynamic program that sequentially plots all known eruptions since 1960 on a physiographic map of Indonesia. Regional seismic data can be superimposed, along with tectonic plate boundaries.
