Being volcanologists, we love just about every aspect of volcanic eruptions and try to capture many kinds of unique activity. Here’s a general list of some of the different types of volcanic activity we have footage of in our collection. Besides the extensive footage from Hawaii, Montserrat, and Ruapehu (New Zealand) we have limited footage from a few other erupting volcanoes (Mt. Etna, Pinatubo) and footage of non-erupting volcanoes in New Zealand, Kamchatka (there are some spectacular cone and crater lake shots in both of these collections), and Italy. We also have footage of other volcanoes in Hawaii and some exceptionally rare footage of native Hawaiian honey creepers in the wild.
