NOVA follows the expedition of naturalists Robin Buxton and Michael Ngatolowa along with geologists Volker Lorenz and Kevin Docherty. The team struggles up to the glacier-topped summit in order to investigate the future of the world's tallest volcano. Volcano Above the Clouds Originally aired on PBS in November 2003.
