Scientists note increased volcanic activity over the past 50 years

The frequency of eruptions of volcanoes on Earth over the past half-century has increased significantly, the planet has entered a period of increased seismic and volcanic activity, said chief researcher at the Institute of Physics of the Earth named Schmidt, volcanologist Arthur Saltykovsky.

"Statistics … indicates that the last time since the middle of last century and the beginning of century, volcanic activity has increased markedly," — said the scientist during an online conference on the site of the newspaper "Moskovsky Komsomolets".

According to him, the increase in the number of eruptions can be "linked to the overall activity

A new volcanic island has appeared in the Red Sea

A new volcanic island has appeared in the Red Sea Natural Disasters

Close to the western islands of Yemen has been a slight underwater volcanic eruption, the emergence of a new island. The appearance of these islands is not uncommon. Many of them disappear in a few years. According to satellite images, a new area of land half a mile in diameter, was found 500 meters north of the island Ruggedo.

December 21, 2011, 12 kilometers from the volcanic island of Jabal al-Zubair was recorded smoke. Already on 23 December on satellite images at the same place was found a

Italy: Off the coast of Lazio recorded a fresh eruption of the volcano mini-

September 29, 2013. All the evidence points to the fact that just west of Rome, capital of Italy, a distance of about 100 meters from the seaside city of Fiumicino, recently, a new volcanic valve. About a day ago, he started his activity with the discharge gas to the surface and sand mixture.

After the first reports about the appearance of the valve-fumaroles on the scene checked out by specialists from the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology, appeared to inspect the center of volcanic activity and try to predict its future behavior. While experts can not say

Volcano Rokatenda proved his unpredictable

September 7, 2013. Photos of Indonesian active stratovolcano Rokatenda made before and after its last eruption, according to the unpredictability of volcanic eruptions. Once this volcano on the island of Palu intensified in late 2012, his ashes and lava mainly directed to the south from the top of the mountain. However, August 10, 2013 the volcano suddenly threw another batch of ash and volcanic rocks to the north from the top, resulting in a small village situated on the coast of killing six people.

Photographs taken satellite "Landsat-8", clearly shows the wide gray stripe that tapers to the north-west, repeating

The largest volcanic eruption

The largest eruption Facts

Toba Volcano is located in the north-central part of the island of Sumatra (Indonesia).

Besides the fact that it has the largest — 1775 km ² — caldera (depression with steep walls, formed as a result of the failure of the top of the volcano), scientists believe that the eruption of the volcano 75 thousand years ago, a serious impact on the fauna and flora of the Earth and nearly destroyed the human race .

This eruption mankind has never known. From the depths of the volcano has been thrown over a thousand cubic kilometers of

In southern Peru began erupting volcano

July 19, 2013. The Province of Arequipa in southern Peru announced the introduction of a state of emergency in seven regions in connection with the activity of the volcano Sabankaya.

Emergency mode, injected for 60 days, residents of areas affected Huambo, Cabanaconde, Larry Mac, Madrigal, Tapai and Choco. According to experts of the local Institute of Geology, Mining and Metallurgy, within a radius of 20-30 kilometers from the volcano registers up to 300 aftershocks of magnitude 3 to 5.7, reports "Interfax".

Peru is located in a seismic zone — the so-called Pacific volcanic ring of fire. There is a lot

Scientists sensational statement — Iceland volcano calms down 60 years

The volcano calms down for a long time

The volcanic activity in Iceland is activated at intervals of about 50-80 years. And now is the new cycle.

Flights over the North Atlantic and the surrounding areas may be virtually ceased in the coming years, experts predict. And the explosions of the volcano Eyjafjallajökull in Iceland and the ash cloud — to become a familiar sight. The volcano woke up quietly over the last ten years. And remind yourself of the tremors. The last earthquake that triggered Eyjafjallajökull occurred at the end of May 2008. The epicenter of the earthquake

Google sponsors the volcanic energy production

Google is sponsoring production volcanic energy to save the planet

Large global companies are making a lot of effort for material support of clean energy. Microsoft, Facebook, Apple and Google are also interested in preserving the environment with "smart" technology. At the moment a lot of attention paid to the problem of volcanic energy.

Google the company and the Department of Energy, it was decided to allocate 43 million dollars to support the geothermal project in Oregon, which is developing a cost-effective and environmentally friendly source of energy. The experiment involved AltaRock Energy of Seattle and Davenport Newberry Holdings LLC

Scientists are trying to understand the causes of the medieval cooling

January 31. A new study conducted by experts from the University of Colorado at Boulder (USA), claims that the mysterious cooling, marked on the planet centuries ago, was caused by a series of powerful volcanic eruptions that triggered the chain of a number of climatic fluctuations, in particular a marked expansion of the polar ice caps. In the scientific literature cooling in the Middle Ages, often referred to by experts as the Little Ice Age.

Climate scientists studied chemical deposits in the Arctic Circle, analyzed a large amount of soil sediments and came to the conclusion that the

Is there an ash through the end of the world

What if a lot of volcanoes will erupt at the same time?

Do not have time to lie down on the passion of the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull, as in Kamchatka Shiveluch volcano awoke. He threw a column of ash to a height of 7.5 km above sea level. Shiveluch raged after numerous aftershocks of the crust. In just the past day, seismologists counted in the vicinity of 42 earthquakes that were accompanied by a blast from the slopes of the giant avalanches. What is this happening with nature? What will happen to us if all terrestrial volcanoes wake up at
