Spring Break Open Thread

Big volcano news while I’m away in Death Valley? Post it here – or just discuss all the volcanic bits that you run across … Moonrise over Ubehebe Crater, California.

Quick update for 2/23/2010

Posts might be a little sparse for the next few days – I’m recovering from a rather nasty bout with a flu-type thing, so I’m fallen behind in pretty much everything. I’ll try to get back up to speed here in a few days, but if you run across any fascinating volcano news, feel free…

Help me find a video!

This is a request more related to my teaching, but I thought I’d ask here. I’m trying to find copies of the UNESCO videos “Understanding Volcanic Hazards” and “Reducing Volcanic Risk”. They were made by the Kraffts to help educate people on volcanic hazards, especially in developing countries. I’ve seen them both and they are…

Eruptions Mailbag Call

I’ve been seeing a lot of questions popping up in the comments – and for me, I find it difficult to answer them in the confines of post comments. Many of them are quite good and would probably be of interest to lots of Eruptions readers, so I thought maybe it is time for another…

Haitian Earthquake Relief

Sometimes it is easy to feel overwhelmed by a disaster like the earthquake in Haiti – I mean, how much can someone sitting in their office thousands of miles away do? It isn’t really feasible for most people to pull up stakes and go to give first-hand assistance during the recovery – but you feel…

2009: The Volcanic Year in Review

Here it is, my attempt to recap a year’s worth of volcanic events. By no means is this supposed to capture every event, but rather the highlight/lowlights and what most captivated me during 2009. I’ll be announcing the winner of the 2009 Pliny for Volcanic Event of the Year tomorrow. Waimangu Geothermal Valley in New…

Eruptions Holiday Break

Hard to believe that the 2009 holidays are upon us and 2010 is around the corner. Eruptions will be going on a short break until the 28th of December – you likjley won’t see any new posts here until then unless something big happens. However, there will be a special Christmas-themed MVP coming out on…

The email eating machine

Just a note to all my readers: I’ve discovered today that Gmail has been eating (sending to the Spam folder) a significant amount of emails I’ve received to eruptionsblog gmail.com. This includes some of the questions submitted to Dr. Behncke (and other emails I’m sure) and comments pending on the blog. Sorry about the inconvenience,…

GSA 2009 pre-update

I did a really terrible job of updating during the Geological Society of America meeting – mostly because (a) I was way too busy, (b) an iffy internet connection at my home and (c) a lack of concentration. However, there was quite a bit of interesting info I heard which I’ll likely post tomorrow including:…

Mt. Hood seen from Portland, Oregon. Image courtesy of the USGS/CVO. I will be returning to my old haunts in Oregon (got my Ph.D. from Oregon State University – and yes, that is me in the upper left hand corner) for the next 6 days for the
