About The PROJECT 100 VOLCANOES - Grzegorz (Gregory) Gawlik

The 100 VOLCANOES PROJECT is realized since 2006 and aims to explore the 100 volcanoes, of which half of them must be active.
Volcanoes are precisely tailored, difficult to access and very interesting in terms of exploratory and scientific. Often wild, most active, the highest.
Project 100 volcanoes is unique on a global scale, approaching the half. Is realized individually (solo).

The achievement of the project are located in two tables, primary and subsidiary.

As at November 01 (2015) at the main table are 39 volcanoes of which 27 were active, they are: Toba, Kerinci, Soputan, Lokon Tompaluan, Anak Krakatau, Papandayan Merapi, Semeru (Mahameru), Bromo, Ijen, Rinjani, Tambora (INDONESIA); Licancabur, Sairecabur, Lascar, Copahue (CHILE, ARGENTINA, BOLIVIA); Western Elbrus, Kazbek (Mkinvartsveri) (RUSSIA and GEORGIA); Khorgo (MONGOLIA); Ararat (TURKEY); Damavand (IRAN); Thrihnukagigur (Three Peaks Crater, descent to the bottom of the crater, more than 120m), Hvannadalshnukur  (Oraefjokull), Ok, Hverfjall (Hverfell), Krafla (Leirhnjukur), Askja and Viti, Hrossaborg, Hljódaklettar (Echo Rocks) i Raudhólar (Red Hills), Laki-Lakagigar-Tjarnargigur, Eyjafjallajokull summit and Magni & Módi  (Fimmvordduhals), Eldfell, Hekla, Reykjanes (ICELAND); Nea Kameni (GREECE); Etna (ITALY); Taal, Bulusan, Pinatubo (PHILIPPINES).

Among the above volcanoes are from 100 to over 6000 meters above sea level. Volcanoes covered with glaciers, tropical and situated in the deserts. Stratovolcanoes, shields and fissures - volcanoes. Extinct, dormant and active volcanoes, including the most active volcanoes. Located in different countries on several continents. As well as volcanoes very little known and famous of the huge eruptions.

In the auxiliary table is 68 items: Other volcanoes: Anak Soputan (INDONESIA); Helgafell, Kristinartindar, Ludentarborgir, Unnamed volcano near Nordurnamshraun lava field, Brennisteinsalda (Torfajökull system), Krysuvik (ICELAND).

Volcanic caves: Lofthellir (Lofthellar), Vatnshellir, Raufarhólshellir, The volcanic cave near Laki (ICELAND). OTHER: Viti (The crater after the eruption of gases), Skutustadagigar (gases craters) (ICELAND). OTHER (not of volcanic origin) Herlany cold geyser (SLOVAKIA), mud volcanoes in Qobustan (AZERBAIJAN). 

The next expedition (November 2015 - March 2015) will include volcanoes of Chile (including Easter Island), Argentina, Ecuador, Mexico and the United States. I'll try to determine which volcano is the highest active volcano on Earth (Ojos del Salado or Llullaillaco - contentious topic), expedition will include: Villarrica and Pissis volcanoes, volcano Sangay in Ecuador and volcanoes: Popocatepetl and Orizaba in Mexico (possibly Colima volcano too). The final part of the journey will involve Yellowstone Park and Mount St. Hellena. Additional objectives: among other things, attempt to reach the highest situated lake in the world in the massif of the volcano Ojos del Salado.
