After the usual announcements at the beginning of the weekly BCP Tuesday Morning Meetings on March 27th, 2018, emcee Sheila Strunk introduced Dr. Paul Myers for this well-attended presentation about Volcan Baru. Dr. Myers had given this same presentation earlier this year, and it was a standing room only audience, with people trying to get into the theater but not able to do so for space reasons. Accordingly, Dr. Myers was approached about doing a repeat presentation so that others could hear his presentation. Again at this second briefing about Volcan Baru it was a packed audience.This time, however, his presentation was recorded for posterity. This posting provides access to the recording of his presentation.

Here is the meeting announcement of his repeat presentation as posted on CL:

Dr. Myers referenced some documentation during his presentation that is directly relevant to Voilcan Baru and others about geology and volcanology in general. He highlighted one document in particular by David Sherrod, et al. Here are several hotlinks to various web resources that were provided by Dr. Myers after this presentation.

Dr. Myers is starting a new "Baru Watch" group for those interested in learning more about Volcan Barui, as well as field trips to see and experience Baru in real life. A dedicated forum has been set up for that specific purpose here on CL. Please see (and post) here:
