Frédéric Lécuyer

In addition to his scientific knowledge, Frédéric Lécuyer is also well known for his work publicising and reporting on volcanoes.

As vulcanologist and mediator, Frédéric Lécuyer's intense career was marked by the discovery of active vulcanism and his passion for transmitting and sharing the magic of volcanoes. A Doctor of Earth Sciences, Lécuyer is also a writer, journalist, conference speaker, photographer and camerographer.

His volcano travels began in Aubrac, in France's Massif Central range, and continued for almost 37 years across all the world's continents. Among other biographic information: he wrote his doctoral thesis on the Tondano volcano, in northern Sulawesi (Indonesia); between 1999 and 2002 he was scientific advisor in the Auvergne region and directed his first film, "The fascinating history of Auvergne's volcanoes", and in 2003 he became chief publisher and co-founder of "Éruption Objectif VOLCANS", the first general public magazine totally given over to volcanoes.

Since 2005 he has been writing articles and reports, has directed films, and has also written books for children on volcanoes. He also produced the contents of the technical dossiers for the free application "Volcans d'Auvergne" and “Volcans de Cantal”, on Europe's largest volcano. This is the volcano where Lécuyer has specialised in recent years, producing the contents of the panels of the most notable geological sites.
