Abstract

PROF. CONWAY'S letter in NATURE of June 21 again directs attention to this remarkable phenomenon. Since my former visit, my daughter, Ruth Place, has visited the volcano for further investigation, and we suggest that the sudden emanation of visible gases and vapours may be the effect of ionisation started by the torch flame.
