PROJECT 100 VOLCANOES - TABLE 2 (other volcanic places) at the end of 2017

Obsidian from massif of Kilimanjaro (about 4000m above sea level).

The project of 100 volcanoes is also a supplementary table, in which after 2017 there are 105 items, although if they were written down in great detail, there would be a thousand more. Exploration of some of them was extremely difficult and dangerous. The thirteenth year of the project is ahead of me.

Table 2 - List of various volcanic important areas and places & less important volcanoes

Project 100 VOLCANOES

other explored volcanoes (including volcanoes, which for various reasons are not included in Table 1) and various volcanic important areas and places, including: mud volcanoes, cold water geysers, sources of hydrogen sulfide, meteor craters - which are not of volcanic origin
