Scientists: reduced solar activity leads to an anomalous warming

Scientists using satellite observations have found that the current solar cycle ends abnormal changes of the solar spectrum, which leads to warming of the earth amid declining solar activity, reported in the journal Nature.

Received during the three-year experimental data do not allow researchers to judge whether such an anomalous behavior of the Sun took place in the past and may affect the climate in the future. Scientists note that people still know very little about the mechanisms of the effect of solar activity on the climate.

Authors of the publication, the team led by Joanna Hay (Joanna Haigh) from

A series of large solar flares was recorded by astronomers

Last night, scientists have noted an intense burst of energy from the surface of the sun in Earth's direction. It belongs to the most powerful category, which may indirectly indicate the beginning of the so-called revival of the Sun.

In the very near future we can expect the maximum peak activity star. Speaking about the possible consequences of an outbreak, scientists warn about the likelihood of geomagnetic storms and electrical failures. Such solar activity can also lead to the emergence of the aurora in unusual phenomena for this latitude. For example, in Northern Ireland.

Increased activity of the volcano in the Kuril Islands Alaid may eruption

Increased activity of the volcano on the island recorded Alaid Atlasova (northern Kurils), scientists do not rule out a possible eruption.

"The activity of the volcano has increased on October 6. Satellite image thermal anomaly was observed in the area of the volcano, the temperature anomalies reached 64,4-65,6 degrees Celsius. According to the inhabited island Paramushir Alaid observed over the top pole pair up to 200 meters" — said on the website of the Kamchatka Volcanic Eruption Response (KVERT) Institute of Volcanology and Seismology.

Scientists do not exclude the possibility of a volcanic eruption with ash emissions to 10-15 kilometers

Class M1.3 flare occurred at night, Moscow time, and there was about 20 minutes with a maximum of 04.03 MSK. Preceded the outbreak of high solar activity observed more days. From the middle of the day Thursday, there were five flashes, RIA "Novosti".

Solar flares are divided according to the power of X-ray radiation from the sun into five classes, which are designated by letters of the alphabet: A, B,

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

In Ecuador, began erupting volcano Reventador. Video

Huge clouds of ash observed from the crater of this night one of the most remote volcanoes of Ecuador — Reventador (Reventador), located in the Amazon region of the country.

According to the Geophysical Institute of the National Polytechnic High School, managed to fix via satellite on Thursday almost constant presence of thermal anomalies in the crater of the volcano. It was also reported seen from space intense fire outbreaks in the vicinity of the crater during the whole night. At the same time, there is no data on explosions in the bowels of the mountain, on

A new volcanic eruption in Ecuador Tungaraua

Tungurahua volcano quite unexpectedly and sharply intensified at dawn.

According to the Geophysical Institute of the National Polytechnic High School, have been reported tremor cliff face, the explosions, the roar and the release of stones on the slopes of Mt.

Tungurahua, 5,016 meters high, located 135 km south of the capital of Ecuador, located in the current permanent volcanic phase in 1999, his most recent reactivation of the most serious occurred in late 2011, prompting the government to announce the introduction of a few days of the 2nd level of vigilance and to evacuate applicants from the local community.

Commissioned the northernmost boiler

In the very distant from the district center and the largest settlement on the area Srednekolymsky district Aleko Kyuyol December 18 was the grand opening of the new heat-supply facility.In Aleko Kuele has just over 600 people. Here, the main activity is agriculture and fishing. In Aleshino lake — is translated into the Russian language name of the village — can be reached by road only in winter.

Distance from district center to the north of the village — 218 kilometers. In the summer, transportation is virtually absent, except in rare small aircraft flights.At an event to
