Eruptions

We get a new update from the Smithsonian/USGS Global Volcanism Program …

Highlights (not counting Soufriere Hills or Gaua) include:

  • The Weekly Report mentions the mystery eruption/noneruption of Karkar in PNG. Specifically, they report:

    The report also stated that ash had merged with a thunderstorm cloud and had become unidentifiable.

    Two ash plumes (11/25, 26) that reached at least 9.1 km / 30,000 feet were reported by the Darwin VAAC … but as we know, it is far from clear that anything actually happened at Karkar last week.

  • Activity has quieted significantly at Chaiten in Chile, with only a “diffuse plume” from the dome complex that started forming in May 2008.
  • Karymsky, a recent MVP, produced a ~3.8 km / 12,000 foot ash column as its eruptive activity continued.
  • Ecuador’s Sangay produced two ash plumes over the last week, one reaching as high as 7.9 km / 26,000 feet according to reports from pilots in the area.
  • Rabaul in PNG was busy shaking windows 20 km from the volcano as the Tavurvur cone produced a number of explosions, along with ash and an incandescent glow at the crater.

    Lost a twenty dollar bet on the Raiders. I was sure the Tusken Raiders were in all 3 “Star Wars” prequels.

    Personally i think what your location is picking your company subject, I actually do your blog site is a reflection of yourself, explaining an expression inside your ideas on their own. This kind your main unbiased and therefore receptive for some other ideas. Some with the using the net public would definitely be a hardly any immature

    What a great story, and not just for the success of the team. The way they all work and volunteer together is wonderful, and teaches more about life than many of their classes.

    Thing you are talking about seems sensible. Nevertheless, think about this, what if you integrated a little bit more? I mean, I don’t want to teach how you can run ur blog, however if you added more stuff which could get peoples focus? Just as a video or perhaps a image or maybe few to get viewers interested regarding what you mentioned.
