Magma, the Food of Volcanoes
Volcanoes are the living proof that the interior of our planet is a restless and unimaginably hot place. But what makes a volcano burst into life in dramatic and spectacular ways? What lies at the heart of volcanoes? This book follows, step by step, the long journey of magma, the source that gives life to a volcano. Where it is formed for the first time; which paths it takes; what it encounters in its way; how it is transformed until it reaches its destination; and, finally, what happens when the powerful magma that lurks beneath a volcano decides to reveal itself.
