Review of Volcano Live

1.       The most interesting fact you have learned from the documentaries.


I enjoyed the documentaries, especially the last one (4/4) that looked particularly good case studies and information about monitoring of the volcanoes. What I did found very interesting is the measurement to do with the sulphur dioxide (SO2) gas and what effect that has on the likelihood of an eruption. This was very well explained because I learnt that the different gases get released at different levels and sulphur dioxide is the one let off most near the surface. It is also interesting how they measure the gas with ultra violet light being emitted and then absorbed by the SO2 if there was a lot of it there.

2.       What you would have liked to see covered in the programmes.


I would have liked to have seen more case studies; I was particularly disappointed with the third one as it covered many case studies in little detail but not many in good enough detail to be useful. I would have also liked to have seen some longer term impacts on show. They seemed to focus a lot on the short term and the management part rather than longer term.
