The activity of the volcano Tungurahua affect air traffic in Ecuador

The next period of the revitalization of the volcano Tungurahua, located in the Central Andes, south of the capital of Ecuador, which began last Wednesday, affect the direction of air traffic in the country. A column of ash ejected from the crater of the volcano, is 12 km in altitude, and it forced the Civil Aviation Administration re-route departing from the capital to the south of the country. Aircraft on the route Quito-Cuenca, to deviate from a straight line to the coast or in the direction of the Amazon. In addition, as reported by the Secretary Emergency Maria

The strongest in the last four years, a surge in solar activity, recorded on the night of Monday to Tuesday, has caused disruption to radio communications in southern China, the Xinhua news agency reported with reference to the China Meteorological Administration (CMA).

CMA experts believe that the second wave may occur within three days.

Coronal mass ejection heading into the Earth at a speed of about 900 km / s, flows out of

By the Earth magnetic storm is approaching, which can last two days

The first working day after the holidays can be difficult for many Russians: the Earth is approaching a magnetic storm that can impair health and affect functionality.

"The next two days are expected to further strengthen geomagnetic activity may moderate or large magnetic storm," — said the head of the Center forecasts geophysical conditions "IZMIRAN" Sergei Gaidash. According to him, "in the past day have continued to increase in solar activity, reported 12 outbreaks of average scores and one big flash."

Large magnetic storms often lead to failures in communication systems, disabling satellites and navigation equipment. On the human

Seismic activity of a volcano in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky — Avachinsky, located 25 kilometers from the regional center, has increased, according to RIA Novosti Senior Fellow, Institute of Volcanology and Seismology Alexey Ozerov.

"In the last two days, there is a growing increase in the number of earthquakes in the edifice of the volcano. Their number was 17 and 21", — said Ozerov.

According to the scientist, the increase in seismic activity in the very construction of the giant of the destruction of evidence or "plug" of the lava, or of "tearing out fresh magma."

Mount Etna in Italy began erupting again

Strombolian activity and lava flows from the south-east of the crater of the cone of Etna seen April 9, 2011 g

April 10. Aetna rebounded to life in the beginning of April, with new eruptions from the southeast crater. On April 8-9, the Italian volcano threw a little three-kilometer ash and lava flow, but then calmed down. However, seismic activity under the volcano continues, and late in the evening today (April 10) on Etna started small strombolian explosions in the southeast crater of the cone (see below). You can check the full description of the renewed activity on the

Deep tremors shake the largest dormant volcano in Iceland

Iceland — A deep earthquake occurred in the Icelandic volcano Hofsyekudl.

The volcano has never erupted in the whole of recorded history. Geologists believe that the last time he was active in the Holocene (Holocene Epoch ended about 11,000 years ago —approx. translator:). Ice dome volcano is very deep. Its lowest point is at a depth of 650 m The deepest point of the glacier located in the main caldera. If Chaiten volcano in Chile, but something has taught scientists, it is clear that dormant volcanoes need a little time to go from dormant to active eruption. That's why

Phivolcs said the increased activity of Taal volcano

Panorama of the crater

April 8. MANILA, Philippines — Today, Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) warned the public that due to increased volcanic activity is not desirable to be near Taal volcano.

Phivolcs said the volcano Taal seismic network recorded nine volcanic earthquakes in the last 24 hours.

The institute reported that the water temperature rose slightly, from 30.0 ° C to 30.5 ° C, and the pH increased to 2.84, compared with the latest data for March 29, with the figure of 2.82.

Scientists also say that the measurement of carbon dioxide produced in the

Shiveluch in Kamchatka ejects ash to a height of up to 7.5 km

© by Yu. http://www.kscnet.ru The northernmost active volcano of Kamchatka — Shiveluch — ejects ash to a height of 7.5 kilometers, according to RIA Novosti, the representative of the Institute of Volcanology and Seismology.

Increased activity of Shiveluch volcano, whose height is about 3.3 thousand meters above sea level, was launched in May 2009. Its dome is a normal eruption fissure cut through a depth of about 30 meters.

"Video surveillance of the volcano are difficult because of the weather, but the seismic station within 36 minutes of recorded surface seismic event, which was accompanied by powerful ash-gas explosions

In the Amur region growing record seismic activity

Everytime increasing seismic activity record in the Amur region.

All new cracks in the ceiling village school staff MOE record almost every day. The consequences of earthquakes, which in Ust-Nyukzha have become accustomed. Tremors in the 1-2 points occur regularly. But lately, the magnitude is increasing. Seismologists record five on the Richter scale. Suffer the most school — the only high-rise building in the district.

Children in Ust-Nyukzha decided to release for spring break two days earlier. In the village are hoping that in the near future tremors stop. But while every morning locals tell each other how

Forecast of geomagnetic conditions for a new week

Last week, solar activity was reduced from moderate to low levels. On the Sun have been several groups of spots, among them were relatively large and which generated numerous outbreaks of average power. Geomagnetic situation was mostly calm with some slightly disturbed periods. In two days (15 and 16 March) was a quiet geomagnetic background.According to the Institute of Terrestrial Magnetism, Ionosphere and Radio Wave Propagation. NV Propagation, expected this week, solar activity will be mainly on the lower level. Geomagnetic situation will change from calm to slightly perturbed. Individual disturbed periods are possible on 23 and 24 March. Source:
