Geological Maps of Volcanoes


I'll be spending the upcoming Christmas and New Year's holidays in Japan. My trip planning has left me on a major Japan kick lately. I flipped when I saw these geological maps of Japanese volcanoes done by the Geological Survey of Japan. With the colors and abstract patterns, these maps are truly science-chic. Prints are available for purchase on their website and are promptly being added to my Christmas wish list.
