*Note that an advanced search with the first search bar being "volcano*" and the second bar being "Ecuador*" or another location with AND separtating both these keyword search bars will bring results of sources that include both a word that begins with "volcano" and a word that begins with "Ecuador" (e.g. volcanism, Ecuadorian...).
