Never in the history of volcanology have so many volcanoes been monitored. We have the ability to sit and watch hundreds of volcanoes as they sleep, rumble or erupt — all from the comfort of our homes or offices. This instant connectivity to volcanoes in some of the most remote parts of the world is what gives us the impression that there are more volcanic eruptions today than in the past. There really aren’t more, but rather we hear about or see the eruptions much faster. With the network of webcams and the peering eyes of satellites, almost no volcano can erupt on the planet and we not notice. So, fear not, volcanism isn’t on the rise but our ability to see the action live is.

Check out the list below of volcano webcams, sorted by geographic location. I can’t guarantee that they all work — webcams are tricky to keep operational even in ideal conditions — but even clicking through a few shows just how restless many volcanoes around the globe are. If you find a broken link or discover a new webcam not on the list, let me know in the comments. Be sure to bookmark this page so you can find it when some volcano does start acting up around the world!

Japan – The Japanese Meteorological Agency has a page of 40+ webcams, but the names are all in Japanese. Google Translate does a good job of translating the names of volcanoes in the table on the right-hand side of the page to find your volcano of choice. However, they don’t allow direct links to the webcams, so the Japanese volcano webcams listed below are in addition to those on the JMA website.
