Veiled threat: awaken dormant volcanoes

Scientists around the world have seen a sharp increase in volcanicActivity on Earth. Many of the "sleeping" Volcanoes began to show signs of life. Especially dangerous is the so-called supervolcanoes, the force of the eruption which is the explosion of several nuclear bombs simultaneously. The possibility of the eruption is 12 times more than the fall of the meteorite. The likelihood that it will happen in our lifetime — 0.15%, experts say. "Utro" rating was hiding volcanoes, which can at any time to wake up.

In the awakening volcano this is not the worst. Located in the mountain

6.9 magnitude earthquake occurred off the coast of Vanuatu

6.9 magnitude earthquake occurred off the coast of the island nation of Vanuatu, said on Thursday the U.S. Geological Survey website (USGS).

According to the service, the earthquake was recorded at 12.23 local time (17.34 MSK). Hearth lies at a depth of 10 kilometers, the epicenter of the quake was located at a distance of 115 kilometers west of the capital of Vanuatu, Port Vila.

The threat of a tsunami is not reported.

Vanuatu Islands are part of the so-called Pacific "Ring of Fire" — a horseshoe-shaped band of volcanoes and tectonic faults up to 40,000 kilometers. It encircles the

Little Ice Age 13-16 Ages was triggered by volcanic eruptions

A series of volcanic eruptions in the middle of the 13th century could be one of the triggers of the "little ice age" — the era of strong climate cooling in the Late Middle Ages and in the New Era, say American Geophysics in an article in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.

To date, the exact timing of this cooling period is not defined. According to the official definition of NASA, the Little Ice Age lasted from short warm "breaks" from 1550 to 1850. Most climatologists and geophysicists associate it with the fall of the active phase of the solar

Earthquake of magnitude 6.3 occurred in Peru

6.3 magnitude earthquake occurred on Monday in Peru, the site of the U.S. Geological Survey.

Earthquakes have been recorded at 00.11 local time (11.09 MSK). The earthquake lies at a depth of 39.2 kilometers. According to seismologists, the epicenter of the earthquake was located 15 kilometers south-east of the city of Ica.

No casualties or damage is not reported.

In 2007, the Peruvian department of Ica in the 8.0-magnitude earthquake killed 519 people, with about 1.5 thousand — injured. Nearly 17,000 people were left without electricity and phone service. Hardest hit the southern coast of Peru — Chincha Alta, Pisco,

Under the Death Valley Bomb zatikala

Ubehebe Volcano, located in the mountain hollow, whose name is Death Valley in California's Mojave Desert, worrying geologists. For a long time he was considered asleep, but the results of a recent study led scientists to reconsider this view. Processes of magma accumulation have not stopped, and hence the eruption will happen. There is still debate about its power, but it is exactly what it would be substantial, and, at least, there is the possibility of an earthquake.

Geologists from the University of Colombia took the Ubehebe analysis of rock samples. A detailed study of the chemical composition allows you

Seven Indonesian volcanoes wake

The National Emergency Management Agency issued a warning on the revitalization of seven volcanoes throughout the archipelago. Agency prepared capabilities in case the worst scenario. Prospective measures were discussed at the meeting on Saturday, officials.

The list includes the following volcanoes: Papandayan in West Java, and Karangetang Lokon in North Sulawesi, Lien in East Java, Gamalama in North Maluku, Anak Krakatau, ("son of Krakatoa") in Lampung and Levotolo in East Nusa Tenggara.

Agency conducts continuous monitoring of each volcano, and possible mitigation measures are different for different regions due to different local conditions. In any case, the agency has served

Near the Solomon Islands was a strong earthquake

Earthquake of magnitude 5.0 occurred on Sunday in the South Pacific islands of Santa Cruz, the state-owned Solomon Islands. According to the Australian Seismological Service, its epicenter was at a depth of 100 km. Aftershocks were felt in a radius of 169 km. Information on the destruction and casualties were reported.

Frequent earthquakes in this remote area of Oceania — not uncommon. Santa Cruz Islands are part of the so-called Ring of Fire, towering over three giant tectonic plates, which are due to the constant shifting of the eruption of underwater volcanoes, releasing enormous amounts of energy. In 2007, a

Volcanoes are increasingly threatening the existence of mankind

The last two weeks have reminded myself of just three volcanoes in different parts of our planet, and in a month, scientists recorded seismic activity in the five regions, Cikave.org.ua.

In some cases, the researchers believe, you can get away with slight shock, but there are volcanoes that carry a great threat to the world population. Can cause serious global consequences Tungurahua — Ecuador's famous volcano, whose name means "throat of fire"?

Now the volcano creates tangible difficulties only to local residents. But we can not forget that we all live on the same fragile planet. The fact that

More than 2 thousand 209 residents have been evacuated in the Indonesian province of North Maluku due to the eruption of the volcano Gamalama. This was announced on Thursday Purva Sutopo Nugroho, a representative of the Agency for Disaster Management of the Republic.

Information on casualties yet. The level of danger posed by the volcano, reached III. At the moment, the intensity of the eruption of lava has decreased significantly.

Gamalama last erupted in 2003. Then the victims among the population was not.

In the east of Indonesia due to the eruption of a volcano closed airports

Gamalama volcano eruption in Indonesia's North Maluku province on Monday led to the closure of the airport in the town of Ternate. This was reported by the Indonesian daily newspaper Jakarta Globe. At the moment, no reports of casualties and possible evacuation of the population has been reported. The eruption of the volcano, about 30 kilometers from where the airport is located, occurred on Sunday evening. Streets nearby settlements were covered by a thick layer of volcanic ash. Gamalama last erupted in 2003: then Tumult not result in casualties. Total in Indonesia, with over five hundred fire mountains, of
