By Patrick Bachelery, Jean-François Lenat, Andrea Di Muro, Laurent Michon

Piton de los angeles Fournaise and Karthala are either protect volcanoes within the southwest Indian Ocean. This booklet summarizes the paintings performed on those very energetic basaltic volcanoes. Piton de l. a. Fournaise has a protracted heritage of clinical study and tracking, with many info accrued in the course of contemporary eruptions. it really is considered one of the main studied volcanoes on the planet. The paintings offered during this monograph contains geological, geophysical, geochemical and petrological elements, but additionally experiences on actual geography, normal risks and the sociological and behavioural approaches.'

The Karthala volcano can be much less popular, however it serves as an enticing comparability to Piton de los angeles Fournaise. even supposing located on the subject of the volcanoes of Hawaii, it differs from them by way of its extra alkaline magmas and no more common task. It used to be additionally monitored for greater than 25 years, generating awesome eruptions in contemporary years.
