Barry Voight, CALIPSO

B. Voight examining Plymouth, the destroyed former capitol of Montserrat.


In 2002, Voight also helped organize a team of scientists to form the Caribbean Andesite Lava Island Precision Seismo-geodetic Observatory, or CALIPSO. “The acronym came into being after a very fine margarita imbibed in Washington, D.C.,” Voight notes, adding: “The name fits in all respects.” Seven years later, the Soufriere Hills volcano remains one of the world’s most closely studied stratovolcanoes.
