THE 1995 TO PRESENT (2005) ERUPTION.

Numerous detailed publications have appeared and are gathered into three main volumes:

American Geophysical Union, 1998, Selected papers on “Eruption of the Soufriere Hills Volcano, Montserrat”, from Geophysical Research Letters, vol. 25, Numbers 18 and 19, p.3387 to 3,700.

Druitt,T.H. and Kokelaar, B.P. (Eds.), 2002, The eruption of Soufriere Hills Volcano, Montserrat from 1995 to 1999: Geological Society Memoirs No. 21, 645pp, The Geological Society, London .

Journal of Petrology, 2003, Soufriere Hills Volcano, Montserrat , volume 44, no. 8, August issue, p.1349 to 1523, Oxford University Press.

In addition there are numerous sites on the internet where a simple search by volcano and island names coupled with the word “eruption” will yield over 72,000 sites. Some of the most notable are:

one posted by the Montserrat Volcano Observatory:

www.mvo.ms

another is the Montserrat Newsletter posted by the Governor’s Office:

also the site of the Seismic Research Unit in Trinidad :
