Iceland volcano eruption in anticipation Natural Disasters

Scientists say that in one of the largest volcanoes in Iceland, Katla, will soon begin the delayed eruption. Over its history Katla eruptions have been observed two times per century. However, the last was in 1918, 93 years ago. Scientists have noted the growing tremors in Katla. Last week, one of the earthquake reached force 4 on the Richter scale, followed by decreased activity of the volcano for a while. Other earthquakes in the area of the volcano are small and do not pose a threat.

How soon will happen eruption of Katla in Iceland? Danger zone

The increased activity of the volcano Katla in July 2011 led scientists to believe that the violent eruption to occur in the near future. In early October, there was a series of powerful earthquakes in the caldera of a volcano, but the eruption has not occurred. Dutch scientist volcanologist Andy Cooper reports that it is difficult to predict when there will be major eruption since Katla seismic activity is still at a safe level. Meteorological Service of Iceland established sensor networks around the volcano, to obtain data on the

In Iceland, scientists record the earthquakes near the volcano Katla

Earthquake

6.09.11.Ryadom with the largest Icelandic volcano Katla greatly increased seismic activity. In recent days, scientists have recorded several small earthquakes, according to Associated Press.

"This is one of the most dangerous volcanoes, so we closely follow him. Earthquakes near Katla happen regularly, but quite unusual, is now a series of small earthquakes occur almost every ten minutes, "- said Pall Einarsson of the University of Iceland.

Volcanic activity around Katla started to increase in July, but has only recently reached the tremors of magnitude 3.0.

Iceland is located in the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, a high level of volcanic activity. Large

3.12.11.Islandiya held its breath in anticipation of the eruption of the volcano Katla. This eruption may be the most powerful in the country over the last century.

According to news channel 24, an additional risk is that the crater with a diameter of 10 kilometers is under the glacier, which is under the influence of heat from the eruption can melt.

This means that millions of cubic meters of water can flood the surrounding area. Seismologists say that watching the volcano since July. During this time, scientists have recorded about five hundred aftershocks.

Icelandic volcano Katla does not cause concern 

Tour operators in Europe, can sleep peacefully as the Icelandic volcano Katla, which lies under a glacier Myurdalsyekudl. Eruption, entailing because clubs ash paralyzed air traffic over the continent, in the near future is expected.

This follows from the expert comments received on 8 December from the Institute of Volcanology and seismography Academy of Sciences, which is based in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. Candidate of geological-mineralogical sciences, leading researcher of the active volcanic eruptions and dynamics Olga Kirin reported that recorded earthquakes are minor and Icelandic volcanologists do not see absolutely

Only in the last two weeks there have been three eruptions, but horrible and Katla Uturunku still silent

Scientists around the world have seen a sharp increase in volcanic activity on Earth. Had not yet recovered from all the dreadful eruption of Eyjafjallajokull that caused the most extensive since the Second World War, the closure of airspace over Europe, as it is time to prepare for new surprises.

Only in the last two weeks was told about himself as much as three volcanoes in different parts of the world, and this month the seismic activity was registered in five

Iceland volcano stop all aircraft of the world

True disappointing forecasts volcanologists: Iceland wakes up one of the most fearsome volcanic island — Katla. The last eruption of Katla was 93 years ago, and the period of major emission of lava and ash from the volcano is 40 to 80 years.

As the 10-kilometer crater Katla is located under a glacier, Iceland threatens severe flooding. But what is far more dangerous for travelers and airlines around the world, is the fact that the ash cloud emitted volcano is so big and thick that can disrupt air travel across the globe, reports BBC.

Volcanologists have no doubt

In Iceland, Katla volcano wakes up again

Giant Icelandic volcano Katla, an eruption had waited a long time, is showing signs of activity that could disrupt air traffic again over Europe, experts say.

 

Over the past month Katla in the south of the country, have been more than 500 aftershocks.

Katla Volcano in Iceland showed signs of an imminent eruption, which may be the largest in a century

In hundreds of meters beneath the surface of one of the largest glacier in Iceland — Katla — there are signs of imminent eruption, which may be the most powerful in the country over the last century.

BBC reports that the Katla volcano, the crater of which has a diameter of 10 km, can cause catastrophic flooding, as under the influence of high temperature melts ice covering it, and hundreds of thousands of cubic meters of water into the Atlantic Ocean stekut, washing away everything in its path.

Iceland is waiting for disaster: Katla volcano is ready to arrange one of the strongest eruptions and glacier melt

Under one of the largest glaciers in Iceland, they found signs of imminent eruption of Katla. They predicted that it will happen very soon, and this eruption could be one of the strongest in the history of the island in the last century.

Katla Volcano (the diameter of the crater — 10 km) can melt the glacier and cause catastrophic flooding on the east coast of Iceland, said TSN.

"Last month, there were more than five hundred aftershocks in and around the caldera. Magma starts to move," — said Ford Cochran of the National Geographic
