Working outside an active volcano may not seem like something most people would enjoy, but filmmaker Zach Voss interviewed several people who love their jobs as field volcanologists working near Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. The area’s volcano complex provides excellent research data because of its predictable eruptions, which happen as often as every hour.

Volcanoes exist all over the world, including in cold areas such as eastern Russia. Watch the Tolbachik volcano’s lava battles with ice and snow.
