This is an experimantal version of ChronoVolcano. Instead of the official Chronoscope 2.12, it utilizes Chronoscope 3D using Mapbox v2. (Chronocope 3D has not been launched yet.) The loveley new feature of Mapbox is a 3D model of the planet that can be explored here. Use Ctrl Drag or Click in the map and use Shift ▲ - Shift ▼ to tilt the pane.

We live on a hot liquid rock with a thin crust. The surface of Planet Earth is formed by tectonics and bubbling hot lava during millions of years. Here are a couple of hot spots visualized with the Chronoscope World.

Jules Verne’s science fiction novel Journey to the Center of the World starts at Snæfellsjökull on Iceland – while Stromboli provides the exit of the cave system.

Did I mention that this is an experimental version?
- Italy has several cold and hot volcanos; for instance the crater lakes:
- Lago di Bolsena Lago de Bracciano ol Vulcanus Sabatinus Lacus et Vulcanus Albanus

Things I believe but cannot prove… Gilibanta Island
/via Kalimaya Diving Resort
- Smithsonian Institute has no evidence for an eruption of Gilibanta for the recent 10,000 years. However, I believe that a volcano eruption has significantly reshaped the island after 1835. Some historical maps support this hypotheses; but are they accurate and reliable? A map from 1835 shows Glibanta with a convex shape:
10 years later the shape is slim and concave; similar to the current outline:
Maybe the map from 1858 was not updated yet:
