Michael Sheridan, UB professor emeritus of geology, was featured
on 60 Minutes in a story on the volcanic hazards posed by
Mount Vesuvius. Sheridan was interviewed by 60 Minutes in
studio and in helicopters flying around Vesuvius in southern Italy.
The volcano “has different personalities and the last
personality was rather benign, but it’s got some mean
personalities down there that we don’t want to experience in
our lifetime,” he said.
