plenty missing

Here's one:
El Totumo

You seem to only be including "active" volcanoes. How are you deciding which ones count as active? For example, Mauna Loa erupted just a couple of decades ago.

Re: plenty missing

Thank you for your concern however this is still under construction as it says in the introduction, it will take me some days to complete this as there will probably be at least 100 entries if not more. The name includes the term 'complete list' merely to distinguish it from other pages which are just for Peru or are just pictures etc. Hope that clears things up.

Re: plenty missing

I bet there are several hundred, actually, if you include inactive volcanoes (see four in my profile picture). Best to be clear which volcanoes you're excluding and why.
"Volcanoes on SP" and the page type of List already clearly distinguish the page from albums and regional lists.

Re: plenty missing

I won't be excluding any at all actually, they'll all be on here eventually, active or inactive, however many that may be. The explicit title is more for if someone searches 'volcanoes' that it's immediately more obvious what the purpose of the page is, there's no need to squint at the faint page type lettering that follows the page name in the search results. The principle behind all this is that not all volcanoes have 'volcano' in the name somewhere so searching for that term won't get you very far if that's what you're after. However, that term will bring up this list, and the amalgamated other volcano related links that I've put in the introduction segment (which are currently poorly organised).

Re: plenty missing

All right, I'm impressed. Quite an effort!

(Final nitpick: the short form of the name "volcan de lodo El Totumo" [mud volcano El Totumo], is "El Totumo", not "Lodo El Totumo" [mud El Totumo])

Re: plenty missing

Great thanks, should have translated the Spanish before doing that. Lodo is a new word for me that I'm sure will come in useful.

Hmmmm; I would guess at least 500 are on SP, but I've never counted.

Anyway, the following mountains on my profile are volcanoes and not listed yet. I'll leave them in non-linkable form so it's easier for you to cut and paste it to your list:

For pages other than mine, just off the top of my head, I believe all the mountains in Ecuador and Colombia on SP are volcanoes, so make sure to search those by country and include them. Also most of the Atacama as well and don't forget well know ones such as Mauna Kea Hawaii.

Re: More

Great, thanks Scott, this certainly will be an ongoing but worthwhile project (at least I hope so!).


Baarb - Aug 16, 2009 11:58 am - Hasn't voted

Re: More

Your guess looks good! Would be around 500 if I put in all the Canary Islands and assorted plugs, but am leaving those 2 groups be for now, need to get back to that job thing that I have... :D

re organization

If you attach the volcanoes' pages as Children to the list, that will automatically list them in elevation order in the left margin.
(It will also generate a Google map, but with such a large list the map won't be very useful)

PS another related page, with a list of 37 more volcanoes:

PPS you've got a broken link (extra "http://") to the Volcanoes of the World album

Great compilation

Thanks for spending so much time on putting this list together.

Giluwe on PNG should be included.

Re: Great compilation

Glad it's appreciated, just one of the few things I could add to the site in my current sedentary position. Thanks for mentioning Giluwe, certainly should be included.

more... (yes, former volcano)

Re: more...

Thanks for links, I knew there were old volcanoes in France but the search engine here is a little rigid when it comes to search terms. The first two I shall include though the last 3 from what I can see fall under Rule 3 as described on the main page. As those were intrusive rather than extrusive formations they won't be included at this time. They may be in future however so those links will be useful to refer back to.

Great site!

Living in Oregon and frequenting many a volcano I thoroughly enjoyed your list. I know your still in the process of completing the list but I noticed Cowhorn Mountain in Oregon was missing along with Pico de Orizaba in the alphabetical list. Looks great though and I look forward to seeing the finished product.


Baarb - Sep 14, 2009 6:46 pm - Hasn't voted

Re: Great site!

Cowhorn Mountain had been in the list but I'd taken it out on the basis that the summit is a frozen plug and not an extrusive feature, thereby falling foul of Rule 3. However there is still a lot of topography left, and Sawtooth is still there so I shall put it back in, thanks for bringing it up. Also Pico de Orizaba is listed under 'Orizaba, Pico de' in both categories as that's just the way most people refer to it. I've taken that liberty with a lot of the other names too. The list while an ongoing work is finished for now, I've looked everywhere I can think of looking and just await new uploads.
