Campi Flegrei caldera is supervolcanoes

Campi Flegrei caldera is supervolcanoes. While a new eruption here probably will create a new Vesuvius-like cone, the worst-case scenario leads to the destruction of much of life in Europe.

It all began with a swarm of 1,000 small earthquakes that ripple pavements in Naples. Airconditioned air fell from walls, tiles broke away from the walls. At the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology, found that earthquakes are not generated by the giant Mount Vesuvius, which towers over the city.

These earthquakes are far from something much larger, one of the largest and most dangerous volcanoes in the world:

In England, there was a powerful earthquake

The strongest in the last 300 years, the earthquake occurred on Thursday in the UK. Quake epicenter was located in the southeast of the country, under the English Channel.

As reported by the British Geological inspectionthe magnitude of the oscillations of the earth's crust reaches 3.9 points. According to witnesses — West Sussex County residents and Portsmouth — about 8:00 am local time, some of the buildings began to vibrate. Fluctuations continued for several seconds.

According to David Kerridge, of the British Geological inspectioncurrent earthquake was the largest in the area since 1734. Then the intensity of

The floods, which were formed by the melting of the glacier volcano Katla, destroyed the bridge over the river Mulahvisl

13/07/11The floods, which were formed by the melting of the glacier volcano Katla, destroyed the bridge over the river in the south Mulahvisl Ring Road in Iceland (about 200 km from Reykjavik). Given that this is the only paved highway on the island, many eastern parts of the country have been cut off from the western regions.

According Icenews, first the authorities and residents of nearby areas to destruction would erect a temporary bridge. But then abandoned the idea because they fear that it will be unsafe for tourists and locals alike. It is predicted that the

When Elbrus explode?

The plans of economic development of the Caucasus can not be ignored alarming predictions scientists volcanologists

Do not believe a solid encyclopedic dictionaries, including the recently published, which reported that the two-headed handsome Elbrus — the top of an extinct volcano. It is not. It turns out, does not it extinct, and, as shown by extensive research leading Russian institutes and laboratories, "a potentially active volcano and very dangerous." Moreover, experts record all new ominous signs that the years after 1800 Elbrus sleepy lull begins to wake up.

British scientists have discovered 12 new undersea volcanoes in Antarctica

MOSCOW, July 12 — RIA Novosti. British scientists have discovered 12 new underwater volcanoes near the South Sandwich Islands in the Antarctic, seven of which are active, according to a research center British Antarctic Survey.

"The team found 12 undersea volcanoes, the height of some of them more than three kilometers, and one of the craters left after the eruption, reaching a diameter of five kilometers," — said in a statement.

In addition, the researchers identified on the map seven active volcanoes that "stick" over the surface of the sea as a chain of islands.

Iceland faces two volcanoes

Just two of the volcano in Iceland is showing signs of activity, and are ready to erupt. One — one of the largest volcanoes in the country Katla, which is located near the world famous Eyjafjallajökull, but two times more powerful than him. The second — the most active volcano Hekla in Iceland, the eruption of which can last for years.

Scientists, geophysicists, ongoing monitoring of Icelandic volcano Katla, warned of its possible eruption.

"Next to the volcano began melting the ice caps, we fix minor flooding on the glacier," — said Acting Associated Press Chief of Civil Defense

The highest degree of anxiety declared at Lokon volcano in northern Indonesia

JAKARTA, July 11 — RIA Novosti, Mikhail Tsyganov. Centre of Volcanology and reduce geological risks (TSVSGR) Indonesia raised the level of anxiety on located in the province of North Sulawesi volcano Lokon to fourth highest, after he threw before the volcanic ash and gases to a height of 500 meters, said on Monday the official website of the center.

"At this point (main) threat is the possibility of an explosive eruption of magma, which could lead to a discharge of sparks, hot (volcanic) sand and powerful rain of ash from an unexpected form pyroclastic flows," — said in a

The gates of hell in Iceland pushed smoke and ash

It seems that the world's volcanoes, dormant for decades, finally slept and actively remind myself. Here in Iceland woke the next volcano Hekla, another name is "Gates of Hell."

According to news channel 24, the volcano Hekla is located in the southern part of Iceland. Scientists have recorded its increased activity in the past three days. Magma breaks out from the bowels of the volcano.

Scientists suggest the probability of an eruption in the next few days, although it is noted that this process may take longer.

Geologists predict Earth nuclear winter

Scientists warn that the Earth is entering a new peak of volcanic activity. The most pessimistic forecasts, hiding the sun behind the clouds of ash in a few years will cause the onset of a new ice age.

According to geophysicists, increase the frequency and intensity of earthquakes is expected in all major seismic systems. Peak will have trouble in 2014-2015, when they can awaken such "peaceful" volcanoes like Mount Fuji Japanese, Indonesian Krakatoa and even European Vesuvius and Etna. Company they will make sure the Nordic and Far volcanoes.

Activation of underground elements entail environmental degradation. As the
