Yellowstone supervolcano might wake up in the coming decades

According eco.rian.ru, it is possible that the Yellowstone supervolcano in the north-western United States will begin to erupt in the next few decades, which would be disastrous for the entire Northern Hemisphere, said volcanologist Arthur Saltykov, chief researcher at the Institute of Earth Physics named Schmidt .

"The forecast nobody dares to give. Neither the Americans, who are constantly monitored, nor any other country. Forecast volcanic eruptions give very difficult. But it is possible that it can be activated, and 10, and 20, and at 30 years old. Volcanic eruption in this case depends on how the

In Kamchatka predicted catastrophic eruption Kizimen

 

Scientists have documented a change in the behavior of the Kamchatka volcano Kizimen (volcanic tremor, thermal anomaly), which may be a harbinger of a catastrophic eruption. "In recent days, the construction of the volcano started to record seismic strong volcanic tremor. While continuing eruption giant. Enrolled thermal anomaly, indicating that the rock in the crater strongly heated," — said Thursday a representative of Institute of Volcanology and Seismology, Far Eastern Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences. According to the scientist, "the available evidence suggests volcanologists that Kizimen toward more powerful eruption than what is

Farmers against Nicaragua with the active volcano evacuation

The Central San Cristobal volcano frequent emissions of gas, ash and sand from its crater. Ash has covered all the trees, the roofs of the huts and the land on the slopes of the volcano. With the threat of increased seismic activity in San Cristobal guide Nicaragua announced evacuation communities situated on the slopes of the awakening of the mountain.

But this decision was received with hostility by local farmers. About 1500 cattle have flatly refused to evacuate and leave their pastures and plots. Especially protest living in a small community (population about 600) at the foot of
