Search the list of volcanoes
It is possible
to search the list of volcanoes used for the SO2 data and notification service, that is presented in the Volcano overview per region section.
The result is a list of volcanoes and the region(s) they are in.
The names of the volcanoes are taken from the the website of the
Global Volcanism Programme.
Some volcanoes also have alternative names, but these are not listed and thus will not occur in the search results.
Notes on searching
- Volcano name
This is case insensitive and assumes that ALL strings given must match
(do not use operators such as AND or OR). The search cannot match
strings with special characters, such as accented letters, so enter
just normal Latin characters.
- Longitude and latitude
These should be given in decimal degrees and be in
the range indicated
where plus-signs may be omitted.
- longitude: -180 (West) to +180 (East).
- latitude: -90 (South) to +90 (North).
- Summit elevation
This is given in metres.
- Year of last known eruption
Only volcanoes with a last known eruption in the years
1800 to present are available in the search.
- GVP volcano number
This is the number under which the volcano is registered at the
Global Volcanism Programme
website; it has the form 0000-00x (with 'x' a number or '-' or '=').
- General note
The searching is done among the volcanoes within the
60 default 40 by 40 degree regions, and the polar regions
(above 60 degrees latitude). Since these default regions overlap,
a given volcano can appear in more than one region. About half the
volcanoes is located in two regions, some 45 in four regions.
