The Smithsonian's Global Volcanism Program (GVP) has tracked volcanic activity worldwide since 1968 gathering news from more than 1,000 correspon-dents and circulating it to scientists around the globe. The monthly GVP bulletin reports on Earth's erupting or restless volcanoes. The GVP also maintains detailed records of volcanic activity over the past 10,000 years so that the new events can be viewed in a long-term context. Share the knowledge of Earth's volcanoes gathered by Smithsonian scientists.
