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 Nicaragua,

Review of volcanic activity from 28 March to 3 April 2012

During this period of seismic events occurred in 15 volcanoes, signs of a new volcanic activity appeared in seven volcanoes:

CLEVELAND (1730 m, about. Chuginadak, Alaska, 52,825 ° N, 169,944 ° W)

March 28 code danger volcano was raised to "orange", as in the crater formed a new lava dome. Made April 4 satellite image displayed the temperature increase due to activation of the surface of the volcano lava.

Fuego (3763 m, Guatemala, 14,473 ° N, 90,880 ° W)

During this period, active volcano spewed ash column to a height of 500-800 m above the crater. Lava fountains rose

On the islands of Vanuatu volcano awoke

The total picture of the volcano Ambrym and s-in Vanuatu for a seven-day period.

Ambrym volcano began showing signs of seismic activity after a long period of calm. As the University of Hawaii, signs of activity in the form of a powerful thermal signal visible in the craters of Marum and Benbow. Other signs of mobility while lava is extremely difficult to identify, as the cyclone season in the region, and the volcano is simply closed clouds.

Large basaltic volcano Ambrym caldera has a width of 12 km and is one of the most active volcanoes in New Hebrides

Volcanoes are increasingly threatening the existence of mankind

The last two weeks have reminded myself of just three volcanoes in different parts of our planet, and in a month, scientists recorded seismic activity in the five regions, Cikave.org.ua.

In some cases, the researchers believe, you can get away with slight shock, but there are volcanoes that carry a great threat to the world population. Can cause serious global consequences Tungurahua — Ecuador's famous volcano, whose name means "throat of fire"?

Now the volcano creates tangible difficulties only to local residents. But we can not forget that we all live on the same fragile planet. The fact that

In Mexico, Popocatepetl volcano has caused extreme anxiety

Since yesterday, Mexico's civil defense forces of the country declared anxiety, which was the cause of the excessive activity of the volcano Popocatepetl. Column of ash above the volcano shot up to a height of seven kilometers.

Emergency services in Mexico capture traces of the volcanic activity is not only nearby, but also in remote areas of Popocatepetl. However, despite this, the evacuation of residents of nearby villages have not been performed. This despite the fact that all the experts agree: This release of ash — the most powerful and visually noticeable in more than ten years.

Astronomers predict a sharp decline in solar activity

MOSCOW, June 15 — RIA Novosti. Solar activity in the next 20-30 years can dramatically decrease, which can lead to a repetition of the so-called "Maunder Minimum" — the long decline in solar activity from 1645 to 1715, which is related to "Little Ice Age" in Europe. Three research groups have presented their research the solar corona, the surface and internal structure of the conference Heliophysics astronomers at the University of New Mexico in Las Cruces, came to the conclusion that the next, the 25th, the cycle of solar activity can be significantly weakened , or in general to
