2016 is coming to a close so know it’s time to look back on the volcanic action of the year. Take a moment and vote for your top 3 volcanoes that you think deserve the honor of Volcanic Event of the Year — the coveted Pliny Award. If you need some refreshers, check of the Atlantic’s review of some cool eruptions, browse through the Global Volcanism Program’s Weekly Volcanic Activity Reports or flip back through the posts here on Eruptions.
The polls will be open until January 5 at 11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time, so cast your ballot and I’ll count down the top volcanoes right after 2017 gets started.
Go here to vote in the poll!
(I’ll try to embed the poll when WP decides to play well with Polldaddy.)
Here are the past winners of the prestigious Pliny:
2009: Sarychev Peak
2011: Puyehue-Cordón Caulle
2015: Colima, Mexico
