The Eruption of the Century

The eruption of Piton de la Fournaise in April 2007, often referred to as the eruption of the century, remains a significant event in the volcanic history of La Réunion. The videos filmed by Alain Bertil, which were presented for the first time during the National Geology Day in 2024, offer a unique perspective on this spectacular natural phenomenon. This film details the power of nature and the terrifying beauty of the lava flows that have crossed landscapes, redrawing the map of the island, highlighting the importance of geology in our understanding of the world.
