From the Air IV: Volcano Edition

(Click here for the first, second, and third versions of the game)
Attention all you vulcanologists, this From the Air challenge is all about nature's zits. Those furious and red lumps whose greatest moments are witnessed when they blow their lids. I'm speaking, of course, about volcanoes. I've collected 10 satellite images from Google Maps of Volcanoes around the world. Just a note, not all of these are currently active.
