Carpathian Basin may become active volcanic zone


In the Carpathian Basin Hungarian scientists had new geological studies

25.01.12.Kak showed new geological studies, Carpathian basin could again become an active volcanic zone, volcanologists said University Eotvos Lorand University (ELTE) in Hungary.

The latest methodologies used by geologists indicate that the crater lake of the picturesque Sfanta Ana (Szent Anna-Anne's), the former Hungarian region of Transylvania, can be a hotspot of molten lava, which could eventually break the surface.

Hungarian scientists have recently found evidence that the last known eruption was here "only" 30,000 years ago.

This suggests that the range of mountains around the lake can be much younger than previously thought, and the chances are that it may become active again, much increased.

Although no one knows when it might happen, the possibility — no matter how small it was — in theory, still exists.
