Dedicated To The Memory Of
Maurice & Katia Krafft
"Pelee Dancing" Photo by Katia Krafft
The photo is of a lava river on the northeast rift zone of Mona Loa at about the
2700m elevation. The river of lava is about 10m wide at its widest.
Both Maurice and Katia dedicated their lives to the study of volcanology and in particular,
volcanic eruptions. They died together along with other photographers, volcanologists,
and scientists on June 3rd, 1991 at the Unzen volcano in Japan. The world of volcanology
and geoscientists about the world will miss this dedicated couple. Their dedication and
work is an inspiration to all of us and they will forever remain in our hearts. This web page
is respectfully dedicated to their memory.
