    EDM is a technique for monitoring volcanic deformation, which may show as changes in the Earth's surface before an eruption. Studies of deformation at Volcan de Colima started towards the end of 1996 and continues to the present in 2009. During this period there has been four volcanic eruptions...

    A definition of the term "volcano" is presented. It refers to an opening in the crust of the planet Earth from which lava, ash and hot gases flow or are thrown out during an eruption. It is a cone-shaped mountain formed because of the materials that flowed or were thrown out from such an opening.
