Winds of over 300 kmh. On March 13 2015, Cyclone Pam ripped through Vanuatu with devastating power. This distant archipelago in the South Pacific is in the minds of the entire world. However, for ­Science, ­Vanuatu is the focal point of our concerns. Earthquakes, ­volcanic ­eruptions, coastal erosion, global warming, this Eden made of coral and ash is a veritable laboratory of environmental upheaval and natural disaster. At the heart of the storm are four men: a journalist from ­Vanuatu, a ­volcanologist, an explorer and a humanitarian worker trying to ­understand, raise awareness and rebuild this paradise that, more than anywhere else, is the victim of the forces of nature.
