World's most active volcanoes

Plenty of world news lately about active volcanoes! I found several sites that are very accurate, informative, interactive and providing many topics concerning the world's active volcanoes that could be very useful for teachers and students learning earth building processes:

Volcano Live
Space Science and Education Center:Volcano Watch
These satellite images show some of the world's most active volcanoes. Additional volcano information can be obtained from the Michigan Tech Geology Department. The Java animations below contain the last four satellite images. Volcanoes are listed from north to south

Smithsonian Global Volcanism Program:
Many resources at this website--types volcanoes, pictures, explanations, locations and interactive mapping

USGS: Volcanoes of the United States
Background information on U.S. volcanoes

An educational site with teacher materials, lesson plans!, videos, etc.

Alaska Volcanoe Observatory:
live video footage of Mt. Redoubt, etc.
