Review of volcanic activity from 16 to 22 May 2012

During this period of seismic events occurred in 12 volcanoes, signs of a new volcanic activity appeared in two volcanoes:  Fuego (3763 m, Guatemala, 14,473 ° N, 90,880 ° W) May 19 seismic activity of the volcano has increased significantly. Explosions could be heard above the Fuego at intervals of 5-10 minutes. The western and eastern slopes of the lava flowed 600 meter and kilometer length, reaching the bottom. The red-hot ash and tephra erupted continuously from the crater. Danger code was raised to "orange", because of the use of flow tephra the motorway in the vicinity of the

Fuji as a ticking bomb

Scientists have found a 30-kilometer long fault, which runs directly below Mount Fuji, this team of researchers reported in a recent report.

This year we have already written about the activity of Mount Fuji in Japan. This fault has been detected by earthquake simulation held at a distance of 34 km from Fujiyoshida Yamanashi prefecture in Susono, said Hiroshi Sato, Professor of Earthquake Research Institute at the University of Tokyo.

According to the professor, further studies determining the exact depth and other information about the fault. Although the data on faults around Mount Fuji has already been confirmed, very little

Volcanic activity in the period from 2 to 8 May 2012

During this period of seismic events occurred in 13 volcanoes, signs of a new volcanic activity appeared in five volcanoes: BATU-TARA (784 m, about. Komba, Indonesia, 7.792 ° S, 123.579 ° E) May 2-4, over the volcano rising ash column height of 2.4 km, then the ash drifted 37 km in the north-west. Batu Tara lies north of the main volcanic arc of Indonesia and 50 m is covered with vegetation. The basis of his breed are basanitic tefritovye and blotches. The first recorded eruption with lava flows relate to 1847-52 years. CLEVELAND (1730 m, about. Chuginadak, Alaska, 52,825

Ring of Fire Volcanoes Earth awake

For thousands of years homo sapiens demonstrated its superiority in the home called Earth. People studying natural phenomena, weather forecasts and predicts some natural disasters. Machinery, equipment and personnel — all efforts aimed at the prevention of natural disasters. But time after time the Nature presents us with unpleasant surprises, and time after time failures to explain the causes of natural phenomena is the basis for the emergence of various scenarios of the Apocalypse.

Nature lives by its own rules, the main one — cycling. Assess the nature can only studying climate history

Popocatepetl volcano in Mexico fell asleep ashes four settlements

MEXICO CITY, May 3 — RIA Novosti, Dmitry Znamensky. Over the last few hours the volcano Popocatepetl, located near the capital of Mexico, ash fell asleep just four nearby settlements with him, said on Wednesday the local civil defense office.

Affected by the volcanic activity there, but rescuers urge people to be careful, use respirators and to avoid ash in the respiratory system.

In mid-April, the Mexican government declared a yellow alert level for the communities located near the volcano after the Popocatepetl again showed their activity. Anxiety persists even now, in the last night there were 25

Mexico is coming to volcanic ash

Mexican authorities issued a warning about the probability of the capital, the ash emitted Popocatepetl volcano, located on the outskirts of the city. Representatives of civil defense issued a call for citizens to take necessary precautions.

Population is recommended to limit the time in the open air, and, if necessary, to go out to take steps to protect the respiratory and vision. Authorities were reminded to be securely closed containers with drinking water to prevent the infiltration of ash particles.

The report of Civil Defence says that in the coming hours in Mexico and around the capital, there

Central American volcano increased its activity

According to seismologists in Nicaragua, April 29, 2012 increased the activity of Masaya volcano, located 20 miles south of Managua. The volcano began to emit more sulfur dioxide, which increases the level of seismic hazard in the region.

Sulfur released into the atmosphere along with the distinctive sound of the main crater formed fault. Experts conduct close monitoring of the Masai, whose surface temperature has risen above the norm, but there is no emergency measures will not be undertaken. National Park near the volcano will continue to work.

Masaya is one of the most unusual and active volcanoes in

In the state of Washington have discovered a new fault crust

In the north-western Pacific Ocean are quite serious tectonic events. From the Cascadia subduction zone, where the tectonic plate of Juan de Fuca is moving under the North American plate, and to the fault zone near Seattle, where 1,100 years ago the real earthquake happened to 7, there was the risk of renewed seismic activity.

The figure shows five areas paleoseysmicheskoy activity (red circles) and three Holocene fault (solid red lines).

Approximately 60 km north of the described location and located close to the extremely dangerous fault in Bellingham near the Canadian border, they found a number of previously

Lokon volcano eruption continues

After several days of increasing activity, Lokon volcano eruption continued, one of which is fixed April 24, 2012. The distance by which the lava was thrown up, is not known as clouds prevented the capture accurate data.

The National Agency for Disaster Reduction said that approximate radius of the danger zone from the top of the volcano can be considered as 2.5 kilometers, so the residents of the surrounding areas should remain vigilant. Tomohon residents in the north of the island of Sulawesi, warned mandatory evacuation is April 23, after the activity of the volcano has increased once again. Centre

Scientists mentally prepare humanity to a dramatic surge in solar activity

Observations show that the luminary slowly gaining a powerful solar storm that happens once in a thousand years.

Human health, he can be very damaging, even though many people experience discomfort from magnetic storms in the days of the solar activity. But a lot of damage can be caused to the infrastructure — the solar wind of such force can instantly bring down power lines, transformers and burn overnight disconnect planet. And the restoration of electrical take months. In addition, victims and the mobile network experience shortage signals GPS, computer failures threaten flying aircraft, train traffic operations in global
