In South America, can wake up the volcano Uturunku

Uturunku eruption may lead to the climatic and demographic catastrophe.

In South America, suddenly awakened volcano Uturunku. It is located in southwest Bolivia, and reaches a height of six thousand feet. Scientists fear that it is growing at an incredible pace, accumulating magma is ten times faster than conventional volcanoes. If this growth will cause the supervolcano, then most of its eruption lead to climatic and demographic Disasters. It will be a terrible paralyzed flights in Europe in the spring of 2010, when Iceland's Eyjafjallajokull erupted.

"This is one of the areas with the greatest volcanic activity on Earth.

WWF fears for the preservation of World Heritage Sites in Russia

Environmentalists fear for the conservation of World Heritage sites, as they are not included in the list of federal environmental Supervision, Ministry of Natural Resources published earlier in January, but the agency has determined that these objects will not be deprived of conservation status.

All of the UNESCO World Heritage can be only protected area (PA). Most of the heritage in Russia are located in protected areas of the federal level, but some are under regional control (for example, "Volcanoes of Kamchatka"), which include both federal and regional reserves.

"If heritage sites are located in the RPAs, they are subject

Arctic anomaly into a hole

Rupture area of the ozone layer reaches hundreds of thousands of square kilometers. In one of the latest issues of the prestigious scientific journal Nature, American scientists from the Laboratory of NASA JPL posted stunning results of satellite observations — lost about 80% of the ozone layer above the North Pole. Preliminary results of a marked destruction of the ozone layer in the region were announced in April, but at that time it was not about the ozone hole. Head of NASA observations Dr. Michel Santi said that local ozone depletion over

In Turkey, the earthquake could wake volcano Nemrut Dagh

October 23. According to Turkish scientists seismologists, strong tremors in the east can wake volcano Nemrut Dag.

Turkish professor Research Institute earthquakes believe that because of what happened the earthquake that reached magnitude 9 and repeated 4 times, can wake up the volcano Nemrut Dag, located in the north of Lake Van.

The last eruption of Nemrut Dag was recorded in 1441.

In a statement, Turkish experts refute U.S. seismologists, who argue that the epicenter of the earthquake was located at 100 km Grubin.

Turks believe that at this point is very dense core, so the epicenter located

In Bolivia, recorded an earthquake of magnitude 4.9

An earthquake measuring 4.9 occurred today, 400 kilometers south of the administrative capital of Bolivia, La Paz department of Potosi on the border with Chile. This, as the RIA "Novosti" reported in the U.S. Geological Survey.

Tremors were recorded at 15:02 MSK. The epicenter was located 195 kilometers west of the town of Uyuni at depth 117 kilometers.

Data on victims and destructions.

We add that the area is in the foothills of the Andes, through which the Pacific "fire zone" — the band of volcanoes and tectonic faults up to 40,000 kilometers. There are 90% of all earthquakes in

In the South Pacific, an earthquake of magnitude 7.6

Along the coast of the island chain Kermadec earthquake magnitude of 7.6, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The earthquake was located at a depth of 39.8 km, the tremors were recorded at 130 km from the island of Raoul. Warning about the threat of a tsunami after the earthquake were announced.

Kermadec Islands are located in the South Pacific. Raoul Island is located in the north of the archipelago, it is full of volcanoes, most of its highest point — Mount Mamukaev — is the highest point of all the Kermadec Ridge.

Raul population are several

Information about the victims, the destruction and the threat of a tsunami there.

Recall, October 13, an earthquake of magnitude of at least 6.0 occurred off the coast of the popular

On the mechanisms of volcanic super-eruptions

The new model of volcanic super-eruptions suggests that these titanic disaster occurring about every 100,000 years, may be the result of some combination of geometry and temperature of magma chambers.

For tens of thousands of years, the viscosity of the rock surrounding the cell, causing the growth of deep pressure, and raises the ceiling camera up until the line voltage in the rock, finally, do not make a volcanic caldera explode.

"You can compare it to cracks that formed in the crust of bread when baking," said lead author of the article, Patricia Gregg of the University of

Power Tolbachik volcano in Kamchatka grows

Power Flat Tolbachik volcano in Kamchatka, declined in early January, on the rise, according to the Kamchatka volcano.

Flat Tolbachik began erupting on 27 November. In the area of the southern slope formed two fractured breakthrough with Lava — a stream of top-break was more than six kilometers from the bottom — 18 kilometers. Occasionally rose above the volcano ash column.

"In the last few days started to grow volcanic tremor. Since mid-January, it has nearly tripled — from 5 microns to 13 microns per second," — said in a statement.

According to volcanologists, the middle of January the upper

Canary Islands residents evacuated because of the threat of eruption

Because of the threat of a volcanic eruption power Spain's Canary Islands began evacuating residents of the town of La Restinga on the island of El Hierro.

Earlier, near the town 5 km from the coast were recorded underwater volcanic eruption. The following may occur in the immediate vicinity of the coast and in the lower depths. It can threaten people.

— "You have brought with them mattresses?"

— "Yeah, I do not know where I'll spend the night. I have nowhere to stay. Our family of four. Mattresses — in case of emergency."
