This website contains a blog and information dedicated to describing the exciting research taking place in various volcanic areas, particularly the Auckland Volcanic Field in Auckland, New Zealand. It is written by Elaine Smid, a researcher at the University of Auckland, though please note the following:

The blog name is taken from Ernie Searle’s 1964 book of the same title. The header image was taken by Elaine from Rangitoto Volcano in June 2012. In the distance, Auckland’s Sky Tower and the Central Business District can be seen through the window between Maungauika / North Head (left) and Takarunga / Mt Victoria (right) volcanoes on the Devonport peninsula in Auckland. For the opposing view out to Rangitoto, see this post.
