All the volcano webcams of the world
So, I finally got this project done! We all do a lot of webcam watching here on Eruptions. A lot of the time when a new eruption occurs, the first question posted is “is there a webcam?”, so I thought I’d try to come up with a definitive list of extant volcano webcam, organized by region of the world. These webcams are a mixed of government/agency-installed webcams using for scientific purposes, private webcams posted for tourism purposes and random webcams with no other purposes than to watch the volcano. The country name is linked to the main monitoring agency (special thanks to the Volcanism Blog for helping me find many of these links).
Now, I know I missed some, especially for volcanoes that have multiple eyes trained on it like Etna, so if you notice something missing, post a comment with the link and I will update the list. Hopefully, this can stay up to date and I will try to get this added as a link on the front page of the blog. Until then, feel free to bookmark the page and use it to find the webcam of your choice.
Last updated May 24, 2011: Added webcams for various locations in Iceland and near Grímsvötn. Also added additional Sakurajima webcam.
Ruapehu and Ngauruhoe (Tongariro) - webcam
Kermadec Islands (monitoring administered by GNS New Zealand)
AVO has a multitude of webcams – and the ability to watch multiple webcams simultaneously.
*Many of the Icelandic webcams hosted by ruv.is require Windows Media.
You can also see webcams from all around Iceland as well.
