Shiveluch volcano spews ash at a distance 9.5 km Natural hazards

Russian Shiveluch volcano 3283 meters high, located in the north of the country, April 17, 2012 on the ashes thrown away 9.5 miles high. During the increased activity of the volcano, which began in May 2009 and continues to this day, regularly occurred ash emissions between 3 to 10 miles high. As the official representative of the Institute of Volcanology, a column of ash ejected, looming to the east, visible at a distance of 40 kilometers. It is believed that in 2012, the most powerful eruption.

"Fabian hole" in Sweden is even more

"Fabian hole" in Sweden is even more interesting is

Huge pit in Sweden, the existence of which was discovered March 20, 2012, continues to grow. Originally "Fabian hole" located in Gällivare 75 kilometers from Kiruna was the 150 meters in height and width. It came after a portion of the iron mine "Malmaberget" collapsed. Local residents are particularly concerned about tremors in the "Fabian hole" that can last up to 45 minutes. Most tremors are accompanied by a loud noise.

It is believed that the collapse was due to intense activity at the mine. Although no one was hurt, but

Icelandic authorities have announced a warning due to the tremors

March 26, 2013. Icelandic police on Tuesday announced the first, the lowest level of anxiety on the island due to seismic activity in the area of the volcano Hekla in the south of the country.

The police explained that the cause of alert was a series of aftershocks, however, according to the police, they do not mean that an earthquake is about to occur. For their part, the scientists believe that volcano Hekla, which exhibits activity approximately every 10 years, can not wake up soon time, since the last time it eruption occurred in 2000.

The volcano in Iceland began to wake Facts

In Iceland, there is an interesting phenomenon: the crater lake volcano Askya melted snow, while in the other non-volcanic lakes located on the lower level, the snow continues to lie. Usually the lake is in a frozen state until June or July. The increase is due to the processes of hydrothermal activity on the lake bottom. Perhaps the hot springs or fumaroles heat the water at the bottom.

It is unlikely that the cause of melting ice are meteorological features despite the fact that March was extremely warm. It is assumed that

December 31. Prior 2013 the year is just one day, and, according to most forecasters, approaching maximum 24th solar cycle. But is it?

As soon as there is a large group of sunspots, scientists expect to end the sun "anemia". However, this does not happen. It may be that sunny maximum has already been reached?

This graph shows the average number of sunspots since 2000. Blue shows the maximum sine wave well 23rd activity cycle and a deep minimum in 2009. The red curve is the prediction — at this
