Mount Etna in Sicily for the fifth time this year with renewed activity

Mount Etna on the Italian island of Sicily on Sunday for the fifth time this year resumed their activities, according to local media.

Specialists from the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology in Italy recorded the beginning ejection of molten lava from the new crater, located on the southeast side of the volcano, about four in the morning, local time.

Another activity of Etna lasted for one and a half hours and was also accompanied by explosions and volcanic ash.

However, another volcanic eruption did not affect the work of the international airport of Catania Fontanarossa (Fontanarossa), noted by

Volcanic activity in the period from 21 to 27 March 2012

During this period of seismic events occurred in 11 volcanoes, signs of a new volcanic activity appeared in five volcanoes:

IYEN (2799 m, east of. Java, Indonesia, 8,058 ° S, 114,242 ° E)

First change the chemical composition of water in the crater lake, where increased levels of CO2 and acidity. The surface temperature of the lake has increased from 28.8 to 45.1? C, at a depth of 5 m, the temperature changed from 42.7 to 44.7?. In March, the volcano is assigned a second level of risk on a scale of 1 to 4.

Iyen volcanic complex consists of

A new technology for monitoring volcanoes

Alutu volcano in central Kenya. Picture of 2008 points to a rise in its activity. The change of color in the picture corresponds to the displacement of 2.8 cm of the soil

According to data obtained from satellites, it was found that many volcanoes on the planet, once considered dormant, long ago are not. In the article "On the monitoring of volcanoes," published in "Science", underlines the importance of developing a global system for tracking all the volcanoes of the Earth to better predict eruptions and timely planning evacuation of local residents.

Fortunately, for the majority of volcanic surveillance is

Magnetic storms in April 2012

To start the good news — the strongest magnetic storms in 2012, we have already experienced. They were in March. On average, 1.3 months, of magnetic storms, and in March 2012 it was already 8. Astronomers say the last 10 years this year, the strongest magnetic storms.

Previous peak of solar activity in the years 2001-2002. According to astronomer Olga Gopasyuk, solar activity is divided into cycles of 11 years, and now lasts 10 th year. So that the peak of activity will be in 2013.

As is known, the cause of magnetic storms — powerful solar flare. Solar flares

Krakatau volcano entered into a dangerous phase of activity

Indonesian volcano Krakatoa, located 130 km from Jakarta to the Sunda Strait between the islands of Java and Sumatra, there was a strong eruption, which marked the beginning of a new phase of its activity. The height of the ash cloud over the crater reached 4.2 km. During the day, moving with the south-east to the south cloud has had time to approach a variety of communities in Lampung, some of which are located within 130 km from the volcano. This forced the Indonesian government to announce a warning to local residents and tourists.

Krakatau volcano in the

Etna volcano for the first time since the beginning of the year resumed its activity

Mount Etna on the Italian island of Sicily on Tuesday for the first time since the beginning of the year resumed its activities, according to local media.

Specialists from the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology in Italy recorded emission hot magma from the new crater, located on the southeast side of the volcano, about 5.00 local time (8.00 MSK), but by 10.00 (13.00 MSK) eruption ceased.

Another activity of Etna is also accompanied by volcanic ash, and vibration. However, this does not affect the operation of the international airport Fontanarossa (Fontanarossa) in Catania, located at the foot of the

Geomagnetic forecast

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

Mount Etna in Italy began erupting again

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 site INGV-Catania. Now this is the third eruption of Etna in early 2011.
