Book finished: Eruption!: Volcanoes and the Science of Saving Lives by Elizabeth Rusch
I love the Scientists in the Field series and this is a nice entry, exploring volcanologists and the work they do to predict when volcanoes will erupt and try to keep people safe. It's not so easy to order an evacuation - it can be risky and expensive, and if nothing happens people are unlikely to evacuate twice. I'm doing a program on volcanoes later in the summer, so I wanted to read this in preparation!
