New alarm from the Chilean volcano

New alarm from the Chilean volcano danger zone

Located in the Chilean region of Antofagasta Lascar volcano showed signs of seismic activity. This is the most active volcano in the northern part of the country. Chilean organization Emergency ONEMI preparing for possible evacuation of local miners and tourists from the town of San Pedro de Atacama.

The most violent eruption occurred Lascar in 1993. Length pyroclastic lava flows to the north-west of the peaks reach 8.5 km. In Buenos Aires, for 1600 km south-east of the eruption, the ash fell. Also, activity was 18 April 2006 and continues to this

Levotolo volcano active again Danger Zone

Due to the increased activity of the Indonesian volcano Levotolo January 5 from surrounding areas were evacuated hundreds of people. Throughout December 2011 over the top of the volcano recorded columns of white smoke height of 50-250 meters. Special activity was observed on December 31 and January 2 increased, and therefore the alarm was declared the first or second degree. The next day the event was given the third level of risk (four levels).

At the moment of the volcano stands out black smoke with a smell of sulfur, heard a roar. Under the

Annual rings indicated the important role of climate in solar activity

The results of wavelet analysis indicate that the match temperature changes 11 — and 22-year cycles (under a thick line) is almost complete. It is unlikely that the concentration of carbon dioxide could be the determining factor of temperature fluctuations with such recurring intervals. (Here and below illustrate Y. Muraki et al.)

July 23, 2013. For years, scientists heated debate, discuss the question of the connection of the solar cycle and global climate. This is understandable: the modern climate policy requires resources, and if solar activity is actually important for the climate (which is at present the

Tropical storm Dorian

August 3, 2013. Last week, U.S. forecasters noted the decrease in the activity of tropical systems, "Dorian" at the level of a tropical storm to a less dangerous tropical wave. Now, however, the cyclone re-gaining momentum, coming to the east coast of Florida.

This weekend in the Bahamas and the coast of Florida expected heavy downpours with thunderstorms and gusty winds. Although forecasters say that the cyclone is unlikely to again reach the level of a tropical storm, residents of coastal cities, including fishermen and owners of cruise ships, warned of possible floods.

"Dorian" has shown the first signs of

In Ecuador, the Tungurahua volcano woke up again

A powerful earthquake in 2015, scientists predict the East Siberia

July 15, 2013. Scientists have noted an increase in seismic activity in the Siberian Federal District. The most powerful earthquake in the last period was in the Kemerovo region, noticeable activity is logged in the Baikal region. On this occasion Portal "Sibinfo" talked to the deputy director of the Institute of the Earth's Crust doctor of geological-mineralogical sciences Cyril Levy.

— Cyril G., it seems that in Siberia became more earthquakes occur. Really now there has been increasing seismic activity?

— Yes, just recently there were two earthquakes with a difference of a few days — Barguzinskaya depression (tectonic element

The magnetic field of the sun will soon turn upside down, according to NASA

August 6, 2013. These solar observatories, NASA show that the sun was close to the point where its magnetic field "roll over", that is, change the polarity of the opposite — it happens every time the light is at the peak of the 11-year activity cycle, said the American space agency.

"It seems to us there are not more than three or four months to complete inversion of the field. This change will cause a ripple effect throughout the solar system ", — the expert in solar physics Todd Hoeksema of Stanford University.

Solar activity is subject to the

Iceland is preparing a powerful earthquake

Iceland is preparing a powerful earthquake danger zone

Residents of the northern part of. Iceland received an official warning that the region has increased the likelihood of a large earthquake. This conclusion seismologists analyzed the 20-year activity of the subsoil of the island, which is now home to nearly 320,000 people.

In a recent series of small tremors recorded at a depth of 20 km near the northern coast of Iceland one of the episodes had a magnitude of 5.6 points. Typically, these events are precursors to more serious seismic vibrations. Local residents are concerned about the upcoming
