Scientists recalculate Kamchatka black-capped marmots

Experts of the natural park "Volcanoes" is accounted Kamchatka black-capped marmots, which are an indicator species, testifying about the ecological state of the environment, told RIA Novosti the natural park.

"The results of the first observations of a trend towards a slight decrease in the number of colonies of marmots in the Mount Camel. Two years ago at one time was the highest in six animals, but this year with the visual observation was seen only three adult specimens," — said the source.

Geologists predict the imminent eruption of a volcano in the sea off Oregon

Underwater volcano on the sea-axial ridge of Juan de Fuca Ridge off the coast of North Oregon to begin a new eruption in 2018, say geologists, accurately predicted the recent eruption of the volcano in 2011.

Volcanic eruptions pose a great threat to human civilization and life in general. The explosive eruption of the so-called supervolcanoes could cause the disappearance of entire countries. In recent years, scientists have made significant progress in predicting awakening volcanoes.

Discovered a group of underwater volcanoes near New Zealand

June 2. A team of scientists from the Wellington returned from an expedition with a message that the data on volcanic activity underwater volcanoes in the Bay of Plenty (New Zealand), are confirmed. According to them, the area should be protected from any kind of activities, such as fishing. One of the hills near the White Island was noted by scholars as volcanic activity. According to them, they found a new hydrothermal vents that create a structure like a chimney. Some of these "ventilation" have a temperature of up to several hundred degrees Celsius.
