Purpose of the AIV disc
Excerpt from the user manual:
This videodisc, providing immediate access to a large range of images and information, attempts to satisfy a number of distinct but overlapping aims:
- To provide some ‘feel’ or vicarious experience of several contrasting types of eruption through the use of moving images and natural sound.
- To provide comprehensive and up-to-date descriptions and explanations of volcanic forms and processes.
- To stress the enormous impact volcanic activity has on both people and environment.
- To describe the evolution of knowledge and understanding of the nature of vulcanicity over time, including contemporary research into the nature of extra-terrestrial volcanic activity.
