For 15 years, geologist and volcanologist Arnaud Guérin has been visiting the world’s volcanoes, and meeting the people who live cheek by jowl with them. In each episode of this collection, he takes us on a journey to a different volcano, plunging us into the daily lives of locals and scientists.
Together, for the scientific aspect of the episode, we explore the very diverse range of questions raised by volcanic phenomena in such varied fields as earth sciences, climatology, biodiversity, oceanography, geography, agronomics, and archaeology. The cultural part of the show delves into mythology, religion, philosophy, folk and artistic traditions, cooking, and ways of life. No two volcanoes are alike; each one has its own distinctive landscape, climate, and geological context. Just as unique are the people we meet along the way who help us comprehend how greatly our planet – and our lives – have been shaped by volcanic phenomena.
