Italy Watching Long-Dormant Volcano
4/28/10 Italian scientists said Tuesday that there was a possibility that a major Italian volcano located on Ischia, the popular tourist island off the coast of Naples, could erupt. Officials said that they have seen an increase in the amount of magma in the volcano, but that they did not expect an eruption in the coming months. The last time the volcano erupted was 700 years ago.

Airports in northern Europe closed again due to volcanic ash. This thing erupted April 14, it is now May 17th.

THIS VOLCANO HAS BEEN ERUPTING FOR 1 ENTIRE MONTH!!

I have never heard of such a long lasting eruption. I studied and used to read all about volcanoes when i was a kid, i was heavily into geology and astronomy when i was in elementary/middle school, but i never read that volcanoes could erupt continuously over such a long span. I always thought a eruption lasted a few days at most.

Jeez, just think of all the carbon being put into the atmosphere. What are we to do? :cry: (sorry i like taking shots at global warmists)

Iceland volcano ash cloud: When will Eyjafjallajökull eruption stop?

Scientists have several ways of forecasting when the Eyjafjallajökull eruption will stop. But their data – and history – suggest the Iceland volcano's ash cloud could persist for some time.


(snip)

If history offers any guide, Eyjafjallajökull won’t cease to become Europe’s longest four-letter word until May 2011. The last time Eyjafjallajökull erupted, in December 1821, it did not stop until January 1823 – about 14 months.

While yearlong volcanic eruptions are not the norm, nor are they unheard of. Some estimates suggest that 20 percent of eruptions last more than a year.

I wanted to be sure that I hadn't misspoken, so I listened to the show again until I heard this said. Specifically, he said he had a geologist send him data on "this Icelandic Volcano" and the last time this Icelandic Volcano errupted was during the Holocaust. Should you want to hear him state this, it is at 42:34 in the show.

Earthquake near the Katla Volcano, could be the beginning of blowing its top!


http://beforeitsnews.com/story/45/173/U ... mbled.html
Remember in Algebra I how you always had to show your work? That's the idea James is getting at here.

James 3:13-18 (New Living Translation)

13 If you are wise and understand God's ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom. 14 But if you are bitterly jealous and there is selfish ambition in your heart, don't cover up the truth with boasting and lying. 15 For jealousy and selfishness are not God's kind of wisdom. Such things are earthly, unspiritual, and demonic. 16 For wherever there is jealousy and selfish ambition, there you will find disorder and evil of every kind.

So, here's the extra credit.

17 But the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere. 18 And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness.

This is 411God.

Katla in Iceland

In the past 48 hours 3 earthquakes occurred at Katla volcano, Iceland. The earthquakes may be due to ice movements within Mýrdalsjökull glacier or magma movement under the volcano. Scientists have been keeping a close watch on Katla volcano, due to the possibility of an eruption triggered by the activity at nearby Eyjafjallajokull. An eruption of Katla volcano has the potential to be more devastating than the current eruption of Eyjafjallajokull.

Volcano collapse underlines threat of tsunami
http://www.nzherald.co.nz/volcanoes/new ... 18&ref=rss
A huge undersea volcano not far from the coast has dramatically reduced in size after partly collapsing more than 100 metres toward the ocean floor.

National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research scientists found that a volcanic cone on Rumble III, 200km northeast of Auckland, had crumbled. The volcano's highest point had dropped 90m further below the Pacific Ocean, and in some places the volcano had slipped as much as 120m.

Marine geologist Richard Wysoczanski said the collapse was caused by an eruption some time in the last two years.

"It's a huge amount of debris - if you can imagine that falling off the top of Mt Ruapehu, which is a similar size [to Rumble III], then you get an idea of the drop."

The 2300m Rumble III forms part of the Kermadec Ridge, a jagged chain of 30 large underwater volcanoes that ascend from the ocean floor between New Zealand and Tonga.

Different volcano --

Indonesia raises alert for its most volatile volcano to its highest level
10/25/10 KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 25 (KUNA) -- Indonesia has raised the alert for its most volatile volcano, Mount Merapi, to its highest level and warned villagers in threatened areas to move to safer ground. Officials said activity at the volcano, in central Java, had increased markedly over the weekend. People living within a 10km about (6 mile) zone were told to evacuate, the BBC reported Monday. Mt Merapi last erupted in June 2006, killing two people. Officials said about 500 volcanic earthquakes had been recorded on the mountain over the weekend. The magma has been pushed upwards due to the escalating seismic energy and it is about a kilometre below the crater. An eruption in 1994 killed 60 local residents, while about 1,300 people died in a 1930 eruption. http://www.kuna.net.kw/NewsAgenciesPubl ... anguage=en

Indonesian warns volcano 'could erupt for months'

Indonesia warned Tuesday its most active volcano could continue erupting for months as 50,000 remained in temporary shelters and airlines cancelled flights over the disaster-hit nation.
Searing grey fumes shot high into the sky and rolled down the slopes of the 2,914-metre (9616-foot) Mount Merapi six times after dawn, spreading fear and panic as the government issued an alert telling airlines to avoid the skies over central Java.

"It could go on for weeks, even months," government volcanologist Subandrio told AFP

With all of the talk lately re. earthquakes, and Yellowstone being talked about, I thought I'd make use of this thread even though it's been awhile since anyone posted here. After all, while it's true that a lot of stuff said about Yellowstone fits in the e.q. thread, underneath Yellowstone is a super-volcano.....so I thought I'd post this here.

The gigantic underground plume of partly molten rock that feeds the Yellowstone supervolcano might be bigger than previously thought, a new image suggests.

The study says nothing about the chances of a cataclysmic eruption at Yellowstone, but it provides scientists with a valuable new perspective on the vast and deep reservoir of fiery material that feeds such eruptions, the last of which occurred more than 600,000 years ago. [Related: Infographic - The Geology of Yellowstone.]

Earlier measurements of the plume were produced by using seismic waves — the waves generated by earthquakes — to create a picture of the underground region. The new picture was produced by examining the Yellowstone plume's electrical conductivity, which is generated by molten silicate rocks and hot briny water that is naturally present and mixed in with partly molten rock.

"It’s a totally new and different way of imaging and looking at the volcanic roots of Yellowstone," said study co-author Robert B. Smith, professor emeritus and research professor of geophysics at the University of Utah, and a coordinating scientist of the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory.

Mount Etna eruption closes airports and 'knocks clocks 15 minutes fast'

By Daily Mail Reporter

Last updated at 3:06 PM on 10th July 2011


An eruption by Mount Etna on the Italian island of Sicily left a nearby airport closed and ... locals turning up early for work.

The volcano spewed lava on to its south-eastern slopes on Saturday afternoon and winds swept ash further afield, stopping flights at Catania's Fontanarossa airport.

The strong eruption - Etna's fifth since the beginning of the year - was shortlived, but left the airport closed overnight.

Alert raised around Alaska volcano after likely 'single explosion'
By the CNN Wire Staff
updated 9:25 PM EST, Thu December 29, 2011
STORY HIGHLIGHTS

The remote Cleveland Volcano is about 940 miles southwest of Anchorage
The USGS raised its alert Thursday for the volcano to the third highest of four levels
That follows the detection of an ash cloud after what's likely a "single explosion"

(CNN) -- A heightened state of alert has been issued for a remote Alaskan volcano after the detection of a drifting ash cloud, the result of what's believed to have been a lone explosion.

The U.S. Geological Survey put out an orange alert Thursday for Cleveland Volcano in the Aleutian Islands, about 940 miles southwest of Anchorage. That is third out of four possible levels on the federal agency's warning scale.

"Satellite data indicate that this is a single explosion event," the survey and Alaska Volcano Observatory said in its notice, but "more sudden explosions producing ash could occur with plumes exceeding 20,000 feet above sea level,"

A similar alert had been issued in early September, amid concerns that the volcano could be leaking from its flanks if the lava inside continued to build up. The volcano's lava dome was 262 feet in diameter on August 30, but by then in had expanded to 394 feet.

Cleveland is one of over 130 volcanoes and volcanic fields that have been discovered in Alaska. About 90 of these have been active over the past 10,000 years, including more than 50 since the mid-18th century, according to the observatory. Roughly three-quarters of all active U.S. volcanoes to erupt in the past two centuries have been in Alaska.

25 Volcanoes Showing Abnormal Activity: Presidential Aide
http://www.thejakartaglobe.com/nvironme ... ide/491341

Padang, West Sumatra. Twenty-five volcanoes in Indonesia are now showing abnormal activity or have been put on alert or watch status, presidential special aide Andi Arief said here on Saturday.

“According to official data, 25 volcanoes are now under alert or watch status and they must be given priority with regard to disaster mitigation planning at district or city levels,” he said at a workshop on journalists’ role in disaster management.

He said in West Sumatra there were two volcanoes that need to be closely watched, namely Mount Marapi and Mount Talang, as they are still under alert status.

Mount Marapi is located in Agam and Tanahdatar districts and rises 2891 meters above sea level, and Mount Talang (2597 meters above sea level) in Solok district was located around 40 kilometers from the provincial capital Padang.

Apart from the two volcanoes, the government and regional disaster management agencies were also giving priority attention to Mount Papandayan in West Java, Mount Karangetan and Lokon in North Sulawesi, Mount Ijen in East Java, Mount Gamalama in North Maluku, Mount Krakatau in Banten and Lampung and Mount Lewoloto in East Nusa Tenggara.

Death Valley's Big Bang: Volcano "Potentially Active"
Richard A. Lovett

for National Geographic News

Published January 25, 2012

A volcano in Death Valley National Park might be more dangerous than previously thought, a new study says.

(See "'Sleeping' Volcanoes Can Wake Up Faster Than Thought.")

A mile and a half wide (2.4 kilometers) and 600 feet (180 meters) deep, California's Ubehebe Crater came explosively into being long ago when rising magma hit water. (Video: Volcanoes 101.)

The bomblike steam eruption produced a mushroom cloud that, as it collapsed, sent rocky debris flowing out sideways at 200 miles an hour (320 kilometers an hour) to a distance of a few kilometers, according to a geologic analysis of rock deposits at the site, study co-author Brent Geohring said.

The question is, when?

Tungurahua Volcano: explosions, ash fall and possible pyroclastic flow
Ecuador's Instituto Geofísico (IG) reports an increase of Tunguarahua volcano's activity: Since last night (3 March), 4 explosions have been reported of moderate to large size. An explosion at 07:31 local time today produced an ash columnreaching about 4 km in height and drifting to the west - northwest.
A second explosion took place at 09:11 (local time) and produced a strong shock wave that rattled the ground and windows in nearby areas. CLoud cover has prevented detailed observations, but with the help of thermal sensors, hot fresh deposits were detected on the flanks, suggesting they were the result of a pyroclastic flow.
In the morning, the observatory post at Cusúa reported the presence of hot deposits on the upper flank typical for fresh pyroclastic flow deposits.
Ash fall was reported from Choglontús, Manzano and Motilones areas before, and this morning ashfall reached the Yuibug area.
The monitoring system has been recording variable seismicity and powerful tremor episodes lasting minutes to hours (which probably indicate rising magma), interrupted by short moderate to large explosion signals corresponding to the ash eruptions from the growing lava dome.

Solar Climate Change: Russia Volcano Bezymianny put on Code Red for imminent eruption
http://climaterealists.com/index.php?id=9253
(TheWeatherSpace.com) - One of the most active volcanoes in the world has been put on aviation color code red, the highest alert given by the Kamchatka Volcanic Eruption Response Team.

KVERT assigned the code on Tuesday and warns of an imminent eruption. "Activity of the volcano continuously increases," says the alert. "Strong ash explosions up to 42,640 ft (13 km) a.s.l. possible at any time. Ongoing activity could affect international and low-flying aircraft.

KVERT source: Activity of the volcano remains high. Seismic activity began to grow on February 12: about 7-19 weak seismic events were registering each day till February 29; about 25-43 weak seismic events and episodes volcanic tremor were recorded each day on March 01-05. Probably there is a preparation of a strong explosive eruption of the volcano. According to satellite data, a size and a brightness of a thermal anomaly abrupt increased on March 02, and continues to increase.

Sakurajima volcano
Sakurajima volcano (Kyushu, Japan): unusually strong eruptions said to be the largest eruption in 2 years
Wednesday Mar 14, 2012 12:31 PM | Age: 22 hrs
BY: T

Moderately large eruptions have occurred at Mt. Sakurajima volcano in southern Kyushu, Japan. During the past few days, several vulcanian-type explosions took place that ejected large amounts of bombs, with some of 50 cm diameter landing in up to 2 km distance. Ash plumes produced reached a modest altitude of 8000 ft (ca. 2.5 km) (VAAC Tokyo).

Alaska Volcano Observatory Upgrade's Mount Cleveland's Status to Orange
ANCHORAGE -- The Alaska Volcano Observatory upgraded Mount Cleveland's alert level to "Orange" on Wednesday, which means the volcano is exhibiting heightened or escalating unrest and could erupt at any time. Mount Cleveland is an active volcano located in Alaska's Aleutian island chain. It has become a routine activity for the volcano, which was downgraded less than a week before following a series of small eruptions earlier in March which appeared to settle the volcano's steady activity that had been ongoing over several weeks. In total, Mount Cleveland has been upgraded to "orange" five times over the past year, with a month or two of decreased activity before an abrupt spike takes it back up. The most significant eruption since 2010 was a minor explosion on December 29 last year, which ejected an ash cloud to 15,000 feet. However, it also signaled the end of more explosive activity. Since then, three small eruptions have been detected by remote seismic sensors earlier this month. A lava dome growing in the volcano led to the most recent upgrade in activity status. There is actually no real-time monitoring at the volcano, making updates intermittent and based on satellite imagery.

Iceland volcano: and you thought the last eruption was bad...
On the second anniversary of the ash cloud that grounded Europe’s flights, Iceland is facing further volcanic havoc, warns Andy Hooper .
This month marks the second anniversary of the eruption of Eyjafjallajökull that left millions stranded across Europe, and cost airlines an estimated €150 million a day for six days. But alarmingly, there are signs of high activity beneath the much larger, neighbouring Katla caldera in Iceland – a possible sign of an impending eruption. This should prompt extensive high-level contingency planning across Europe, as Katla has the potential to be much more damaging than Eyjafjallajökull.

Why the Recent Sumatra Quake Was So Strange
The unexpectedly large earthquake that hit Sumatra last month is forcing scientists to rethink common assumptions about earthquake physics, researchers say.

The magnitude 8.6 earthquake that struck in the Indian Oceanoff the western coast of Sumatra on April 11was one of the 10 largest earthquakesever recorded, and was felt as far away as Bangladesh and India. However, no quake-related fatalities were reported.

Seismologists have done preliminary studies on the earthquake and found that it had some unusual aspects, ones that could help them better understand earthquakes that happen away from the boundaries between tectonic plates and better appreciate how powerful those quakes could potentially be.

Alaska’s Cleveland volcano has explosive ash burst
une 20, 2012 – ALASKA - Cleveland Volcano, a 5,676-foot (1,730 meter) peak on an uninhabited island 940 miles southwest of Anchorage, had an explosive eruption at about 2:05 p.m. local time, the Alaska Volcano Observatory reported. A pilot flying in the area estimated that the ash cloud rose to 35,000 feet above sea level, reported the observatory, which is a joint federal-state organization that monitors Alaska’s numerous active volcanoes. However, satellite imagery shows only a weak ash signal, suggesting a thin cloud that dissipated quickly, said Stephanie Prejean, a U.S. Geological Survey seismologist at the observatory in Anchorage.
