In the Philippines, Bulusan volcano awoke

Buluzan volcano in the Philippines woke up after four years of peace, according to Bild. Shortly after midnight local time, there was an explosion in the crater, which can be heard within a radius of five kilometers. At least two of the villages was a rain of ashes.

The volcano is located about 375 kilometers south-east of the capital Manila. Forbidden to cross the area within a radius of four kilometers from the crater, as exist danger of explosions of ash and steam. It may also be disrupted air traffic. Buluzan a height

Baku can stay under water?

Exogenous processes like breaking the crust near the Absheron peninsula, occur in all seismically active regions.

This statement was made in an interview with "Echo" was a famous Russian Viktor Bokov seismologist. So expert commented about breaking the crust in the south-western regions of Azerbaijan.

In his opinion, it is necessary to monitor progress.

"In March, in the surrounding areas of the Caspian Sea is a powerful atmospheric adjustment, and they have played a role in association with endogenous processes involved in these processes," — he said.

However, as V.Bokov, this does not mean that he immediately begin powerful

The world continues to live like a volcano

The ecological situation in the world going very disturbing. The greatest fears inspire volcanoes and seismic activity.

Supervolcanoes long not notice, because they are very large and very long time not erupted

Science noticed this lurking danger under the feet of humanity has only recently — and yet one could not become a volcanologist witnessed its revival. But they ask their gods to prevent this from happening. Bomb under Naples

Two thousand years ago, the eruption of Mount Vesuvius buried the multimeter under a layer of ash and rock city of Pompeii, and covered with a cloud of hot pyroclastic flow Herculaneum. In the story it was included as one of the worst natural disasters, as a symbol of breaking the power of Mother Nature. Breathtaking and terrifying mind

Volcano on Kamchatka became dangerous for aviation

Erupting volcano in Kamchatka Karymsky emits a column of ash up to 6 miles, dangerous for aircraft flying in the area. In the vicinity of the volcano in the past days were more than 60 seismic events. And then threw a few giant column of ash from the gas, the largest of which is 6 feet above sea level.

About it, "Interfax" reported the Kamchatka branch of the Geophysical Service of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Danger to nearby communities Volcano is not represented. However Karymsky is assigned orange hazard to aviation, threatening aircraft. Ash particles can

Millions volcano stirs beneath the ocean floor

In 1993, marine geophysicists aboard the research vessel Melville discovered 1,133 previously unsupported map underwater volcano off the coast of Easter Island. Although some of the newly discovered volcanoes rose as much as one and a half miles above the seafloor, their summits still remained half a mile below the surface of the water — all in a relatively small area of only 55,000 square miles the size of New York State. Geophysicists have increased the known supply of underwater volcanoes by more than ten per cent only for months. It was 1993. Today, scientists estimate that

Karymsky ejects ash to a height of 6 km

Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, May 12 — RIA Novosti. One of the most active of 29 active volcanoes of Kamchatka — Karymsky ejects ash column to a height of 6 km, told RIA Novosti the Kamchatka branch of the Geophysical Service RAS.

"Seismic stations registered in the last day in the area of the volcano about 60 local earthquakes. Video surveillance Karymskaya difficult, but seismic data suggest that some earthquakes accompanied ash plumes. The height of the most powerful of them was 6 miles, "- said the source.

He noted that for the settlements of the peninsula, including Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, remote from the volcano

In the area of Vanuatu in the Pacific Ocean earthquake magnitude 7.1

Earthquake of magnitude 7.1 occurred on Tuesday off the coast of the island nation of Vanuatu in the Pacific Ocean, the site of the U.S. Geological Survey. According to the service, the earthquake was recorded at 19.55 local time (12.55 MSK). Hearth lies at a depth of ten kilometers, the epicenter of the quake was at a distance of 273 kilometers south of the capital of Vanuatu — Port Vila. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Miami said that the threat of a tsunami there. Vanuatu Islands are part of the so-called Pacific "Ring of Fire" — a horseshoe-shaped band

Get ready to shake

Where and when will the new earthquakes.

According to experts of the International Committee on Global Change subsurface GEOCHANGE, in the next few years, the world offers new catastrophic earthquake.

According to experts, in 2011, a new phase of growth of seismic activity, as clearly evidenced by the March earthquake in Japan. Now there is a movement the Pacific plate, accompanied by activation of the giant sverhglubinnyh faults, where one plate goes to the other. Japan first felt the brunt of the disaster, but he, unfortunately, is not the last. Seismologists believe, the tension in this area has not

Increases the risk of eruption supervolcano

Now, scientists record the seismic activity around the world, even in those areas where previously it was not. The main danger in this situation is the awakening of the so-called "supervolcanoes".

Professor of Petrology, Moscow State University said in an interview, "Morning of Russia", which differs from the usual supervolcano eruption much greater force and volume of the eruption. In supervolcano eruption force reaches the level 8, at which the volume of the eruption of 1000 cubic kilometers. In appearance supervolcanoes — is usually depression. Because if it was originally a mountain after the eruption far kilometers
