Mine is Vorkuta, resumed the production of coal in two lavas

Vorkutaugol — one of the largest coal producers in Russia, part of Severstal, began practicing a new lava at the mine "Vorkuta" on the seam "Triple" with reserves of more than 800 tons. Since then, the mine resumes operation of coal mining two clearing faces.

Preparation of the new lava 932 th began in March of this year. Originally it was planned commissioning towards the end of the year.Since then, the mine "Vorkuta," led coal mining in the central unit, where they perfect lava in 1022 through the formation "Fourth." Meanwhile, the high-speed mode was passed assembly

Underwater volcanoes erupt differently

Macauley Island — caldera, formed after the eruption of an underwater volcano of the same name 6100 years ago (here and below the image of the authors.)

January 21, 2013. Until now, scientists were divided eruption into two categories: violent (explosive) and effusive. The first type involves adorable kids emission of ash and rock fragments high into the atmosphere (for example, eruption of Mount St. Helens in 1980). The second — the soft glow of red lava streams that irrigate the slopes of the volcano (this, for example, constantly going on in Hawaii).

To get to the unusual

Mount Cleveland volcano dome rose 25%

Mount Cleveland volcano dome rose 25% Danger Zone

On 6 February the dome of the most active volcano in the Aleutian Islands rose by only 40 meters. However, over the last week, it increased to 50 meters, which indicates a possible eruption in the next few days.

Fig. 2. Satellite image of the top of Cleveland. Inside the crater with a diameter of about 200 m see a small volcanic dome. 10/02/2012.

Prior to that, a massive volcanic dome, which occupies most of the crater, the eruption was destroyed on 25 and 29 December 2011. Cleveland's new dome continues to

Etna volcano eruption

Eruption of Etna Natural Disasters

After a 12-day Strombolian activity in the southeast of Etna February 9, 2012 in one of the craters, a series of paroxysmal eruptions, the second in 2012. Although the event was less powerful, but it lasted more than 5 hours. Interrupted activity of the 8 February, reaching its peak at night to the eruption of lava up to a distance of 500 meters. Rising column of ash several kilometers into Catania airport forced to cancel all morning flights. At some explosions from the crater were ejected volcanic bombs, most of which came back into the

Journey to the center of the world to the crater of Nyiragongo

Journey to the center of the world to the crater of Nyiragongo Danger Zone

In June 2010 a group of scientists and researchers came to the lava lake boiling in the depths of the crater of Nyiragongo in the heart of the African Great Lakes region. Each year, the lava is growing, so aim of the expedition is to study the volcanic lake to prevent the next disaster.

1) View from the edge of a volcano on a distance of 3.5 kilometers from the earth. At a depth of 400 meters lava lake has created one of the wonders of

Heartbeat of the planet scientists have recorded

December 15, 2010. A rare natural phenomenon recently managed to secure it with a hydrophone, previously used in the tracking of Soviet nuclear submarines. Some scientists believe that the bottom activity — a kind of "heartbeat" of the planet. Found himicheskby process affects the composition of sea water on the deposition of metals, including gold, etc.

It is a question of some substance, like a volcanic lava, flowing slowly from the depths of the planet and sprawling on the ocean floor.

But all this is happening in the dark late at night, out of reach of the underwater realm,

Is it possible to drown in a volcano?

Is it possible to drown in a volcano? It is interesting

Fig. Lava lake in the crater of the volcano Niragongo in Congo.

Many thrillers special effect used when the character is drowning in boiling lava of the volcano and dissolves instantly at about a thousand degrees. This happened with the villain Gollum from "The Lord of the Rings." But geologist Eric Klemetti sure that everything is a bit different.

Rather, it falls into the lava man will not sink, but will be retained on the surface of the hot mass. First, this is because the density of the lava

At Mount Lokon was another eruption

September 10, 2013. Located on the island. North Sulawesi Indonesian volcano Lokon early morning wake locals roar from the new eruption. From the active crater Tompaluan flew column of ash up to 1,500 meters. About a day lava flows reached the border villages to the north of the volcano.

Sounds of the eruption of the volcano were heard even in Manikhas remote from the curl of 10 km. Residents of settlements Pineleng, Tanavangko and Tutelo and specialists volcanologists are watching the direction of the fresh lava flows, but the rush of the evacuation is not collected. The region is

Volcanic activity in the Red Sea

Volcanic activity in the Red Sea Natural Disasters

As a result of the eruption of December 19, 2011 in the Red Sea fishermen witnessed lava fountains up to 30 meters. Seismic activity in the region is not limited to a single eruption, and December 23, a group of small islands off the west coast of Zubair Yemen, a new island.

This part of the Red Sea rift is over between the African and Arab tectonic plates, which is the process of actively forming the ocean floor. Zubair Islands, Yemen envelopes from the north-west to south-east, stand out above the sea
