36.1 Icelandic Volcanoes Volcanoes are among the most spectacular and powerful forces on our planet. The 2010 eruption of a volcano in Iceland provoked economic chaos by paralyzing a major air traffic network for days. Much more powerful volcanoes in Iceland are ready to wake up. Spectacular aerial footage of Iceland is used to show which volcano could wake up next and what the consequences of a major eruption are likely to be. (1 of 6)

36.1 Volcano Doctors The Philippines, Colombia, Italy, Iceland and other countries are home to active volcanoes that are a threat to the populations settled at their feet. To avoid disasters, volcanologists are asked to anticipate and warn. A look is taken at how “volcano doctors” use their tools and knowledge to try to protect those who live beneath the Earth's fire.

36.1 The Surprise Salmon In Alaska, the fresh water that feeds the rivers is snowmelt from North America's highest mountains and most active volcanoes. Time and again, they erupt and poison the rivers. Scientists explain how they’ve only just begun to piece together what might have happened nearly 2,000 years ago, when one race of salmon faced the death of their natal river and were forced back to the open ocean on an exceptional adventure.

36.1 Phoenix Temple Around the Masaya Volcano in Nicaragua, life has struggled for thousands of years to re-emerge from the ashes. Underground, bat species have colonized the miles of tunnels created by hot flowing magma. In the crater, birds have made nests on cliffs exposed to toxic gases. At the foot of the volcano, fields, pastures and towns have grown over the oldest lava flows. Footage reveals, how, in this harsh environment, nature struggles to conquer ash and lava before the next eruption erases its efforts--and the phoenix must rise again. (4 of 6)
