Nyiragongo Volcano
MOUNT NYIRAGONGO is an active stratovolcano with an elevation of 3,470 metres (11,380 ft) in the Virunga Mountains associated with the Albertine Rift . It is located inside Virunga National Park , in the Democratic Republic of the Congo , about 20 km (12 mi) north of the town of Goma and Lake Kivu and just west of the border with Rwanda . The main crater is about two kilometres wide and usually contains a lava lake . The crater presently has two distinct cooled lava benches within the crater walls – one at about 3,175 m (10,417 ft) and a lower one at about 2,975 m (9,760 ft). Nyiragongo's lava lake has at times been the most voluminous known lava lake in recent history. The depth of the lava lake varies considerably. A maximum elevation of the lava lake was recorded at about 3,250 m (10,660 ft) prior to the January 1977 eruption – a lake depth of about 600 m (2,000 ft). A recent very low elevation of the lava lake was recorded at about 2,700 m (8,900 ft)

Standard Catalog Of World Paper Money
The STANDARD CATALOG OF WORLD PAPER MONEY is a well-known catalogue of banknotes that is published by Krause Publications in three volumes. These catalogues are commonly known in the numismatic trade as the PICK CATALOGUES, as the numbering system was originally compiled by Albert Pick . Since the mid-1980s the titles have been owned by Krause Publications, and since 1994 have been under the editorship of George S. Cuhaj. CONTENTS* 1 Numbering system * 1.1 Number * 1.2 Variants * 2 Edition * 3 See also NUMBERING SYSTEMThe numbering system uses capital letters (e.g. 'P', 'PS', 'PM') and an integer to identify a note. If a note has signature or date variants, then a lower case letter follows (e.g. P120a). If a number needs to be added, and the section is not renumbered then the format is to use a suffix capital letter (e.g. P120A). NUMBERThe sorting of notes is usually by issue series/date, then ascending by denomination

International Standard Book Number
The INTERNATIONAL STANDARD BOOK NUMBER (ISBN) is a unique numeric commercial book identifier. An ISBN is assigned to each edition and variation (except reprintings) of a book. For example, an e-book , a paperback and a hardcover edition of the same book would each have a different ISBN. The ISBN is 13 digits long if assigned on or after 1 January 2007, and 10 digits long if assigned before 2007. The method of assigning an ISBN is nation-based and varies from country to country, often depending on how large the publishing industry is within a country. The initial ISBN configuration of recognition was generated in 1967 based upon the 9-digit STANDARD BOOK NUMBERING (SBN) created in 1966. The 10-digit ISBN format was developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and was published in 1970 as international standard ISO 2108 (the SBN code can be converted to a ten digit ISBN by prefixing it with a zero)

Standard Catalog Of World Coins
The STANDARD CATALOG OF WORLD COINS is a series of numismatic catalogs , commonly known as the KRAUSE CATALOGS. They are published by Krause Publications , a division of F+W Media. CONTENTS * 1 Overview * 2 Edition * 3 See also * 4 References * 5 External links OVERVIEWThe by-century volumes list by date virtually every coin type, most of which are photographed, with mintage and other information, plus market valuations in up to 5 grades. Listings are by denomination rather than series, as in earlier World coin catalogs. The proprietary Krause-Mishler (or KM) numbers are widely used; for just a few countries earlier systems such as Y (Yeoman) and C (Craig) numbers are given instead. The century format is often considered inconvenient and expensive for those who collect geographically, and date listings are clipped at the century mark
