about the author:
Tom Bacon, age 18. Student at Batley Grammar School, UK.
He has an active imagination, and is an enthusiastic researcher.
Organizing a lot of things at school.

There, he became fascinated with geography in general and volcanoes in
particular, collecting and collating a mass of data and material that he
absolutely loves
to improve on.


He is almost obsessive about the collection and perfection of knowledge
(especially about volcanoes) and is considering teaching as a life-occupation.

The article on Hawai'ian Volcanoes is a
compilation and condensation
of about fifteen volcanology books,a collection of USGS-sites, and more....

If you asks how he finds time for all this, just don't ask  That's his big problem....
