In my youth I saw vulcanology used to describe the study of volcanoes, but lately that spelling isn't recognized as proper. Do others use the "u" spelling, or am I the last one?

You're the last of a dying breed.

I've not seen the "u," Geoff. It reminds me of Vulcans.

Is a vulcan a container made of heat-treated rubber?

The Star Trek references win out for me.

How else could it possibly be spelled?
I’m with you, Geoff.
