Mystery Volcano Photo #25

It is a busy week for me, but maybe this Mystery Volcano will keep you busy.

OK, first off an apology for this week: I will be kind of crazy busy while in Davis – two papers to churn through so we can get them submitted sometime this summer, so blogging may be minimal. So, remember, whenever you hear people talk about how professors have it easy because they get the summer “off” …

Second off, another apology: Dr. Ed Kohut went to Boston College, not Boston University. You would have thought I could keep that straight, but alas, I confuse my Eagles with my Terriers.

Mea culpa to all!

Anyway, I have to send out a hearty congratulations to Boris Behncke destroying my attempt to challenge people with the last Mystery Volcano Photo as he got it right on the very first guess.. It was, indeed, Surtsey in Iceland. The picture is a slide scan from an old set of glass slides I found in storage at Oregon State while I was there – a set with images of eruptions from Surtsey and Hekla. I love the picture with the guys just casually watching the eruption from what looks like meters away from the vent.

Boris’ correct guess puts him squarely in first place!
