Review of volcanic activity in the beginning of March Natural Disasters

During the first week in March 2012 seismic activity 17 volcanoes on the planet in varying degrees, changed its character. About five new volcanoes have moved to more dangerous stage.

Besides Bezymyannyi (55,978 ° N, 160,587 ° E) in Central Kamchatka, has been assigned the "red" key risk is worth noting as volcanoes Cleveland, Etna, Kanaga and Tungurahua.

March 3 at the satellite image of the volcano was noted weak thermal anomaly. The current code is dangerous

Interview with the President of the Global Network of earthquake prediction

Elchin Khalilov, in the center

The head of the Global Network of earthquake prediction (GNFE, London) Elchin Khalilov said that before the end of 2010, there is nothing to fear, but at the same time, the expert does not want to cause premature excitement among the population.

N. ABASOV. Interview with the President of the Global Network of earthquake prediction (GNFE, London), Vice-President of the International Academy of Sciences (Austria, Innsbruck), chairman of the International Committee on Global Change subsurface GEOCHANGE (London), Professor Elchin Khalilov, organized specially for the newspaper "Echo" Press Service GNFE.

Doomsday Fire: Millions of volcanoes stir beneath the oceans of the world

The volcanic islands and seamounts of the Pacific Ocean

In 1993, marine geophysicists aboard the research vessel Melville discovered 1,133 previously unsupported map underwater volcano off the coast of Easter Island. Some of them are increased by one and a half miles above the ocean floor, but most were still half a mile below the surface of the water. All this in a relatively small area of 55 thousand square miles, which corresponds to the size of the State of New York.

At the time of Geophysics increased the number of known submarine volcanoes by 10%. That was

Mysteries of volcanoes in the world. The most dangerous and unusual volcanoes.

20.03.2013

 

Many mysteries of volcanoes remain undiscovered because of the impossibility of direct study of these objects. Scientists can not always predict the eruption, and the main way to deal with it remain passive measures — the evacuation of people from the dangerous area and stop air service. The eruption of the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull in 2010 led to the temporary closure of the airspace over Europe for flights. Supervisory authorities feared that volcanic ash can damage aircraft engines and aircraft

Silent earthquakes differ unexpected turn

Cascadia subduction zone (Figure Steve Malone / Central Washington University).

May 23, 2011. Scientists continues to hold secret imperceptible, but the long seismic phenomenon called episodic tremor and slip (ETS, episodic tremor and slip). Recently, the "quiet earthquake" (or, if you like, "slow slip") was discovered a strange twist: a concussion can suddenly change course and return to again go through the rift that it formed a few days earlier, the rate of return movement in the 20-40 times higher than the original — because the area is already weakened.

ETS was first recorded in the north-west

Individual produce 135 times more carbon dioxide than volcanoes

The colossal, mind-numbingly hot, capable of spewing clouds of ash and rivers of burning lava volcanoes — a dwarf compared to the people in regard to the production of carbon dioxide.

Annually bipedal emitted approximately 135 times larger than carbon dioxide. In other words, people in three days produce as much as volcanoes issue for the year.

"The question is whether volcanoes emit more CO2, than the man — the most common in my email" —

In Alaska volcano erupts Pavlova

May 17, 2013. Pavlov volcano on the Alaska Peninsula, awakened this week, stepping up activity. According to the Center for Monitoring volcanoes in Alaska, seismic activity remains elevated, earthquakes occur continuously.

The volcano continues to erupt, the lava — gush. Vulcan produces a cloud of ash, steam and gas extending from 50 to 100 kilometers. It is situated at an altitude of about 20,000 feet (6.1 thousand meters) above sea level. The morning of May 16 the clouds spread in the south-east. Satellite images show a constant, elevated temperature, the surface of the volcano. Flow down the slopes of the

Ecuadorian volcanoes do not sleep

Ecuadorian volcanoes do not sleep Danger Zone

Volcanoes Reventodor, Sangay and Tungurahua again showing seismic activity. The same data is received on volcanoes Galeras and Fuego, in the neighborhood. In northern Chile for the company wake Laskar and Cordon-Puyeue.

Reventador

January 6-7, above the crater of the volcano has been a steady 300-meter gas emissions and steam, which drift in the west-north-west. This is a clear sign that the lava almost reached the top Reventadora and continues to climb. The mountain range of the Cordillera Real, which is the volcano, can be called the most seismically active area in Ecuador.

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

How long does it take for volcanoes 'charge'?

August 2, 2013. The journal Nature recently published an interesting information about the inner life of terrestrial volcanoes. Received news about volcanoes can be divided into "good" and "bad." Let's start with the "bad."

As the researchers from Columbia University, on this planet, there are special types of volcanoes, which to recharge the regular portion of fresh lava requires only a few days, at most, a week. Previously, it was believed that the preparations for the new full eruption takes much more time. The eruptive activity of volcanoes erupting at the same time reserving and fresh hot magma in its
