One other thing …

This hiatus for Eruptions lead me to do one thing I said I would never do … but strange times call for strange measures. Eruptions has opened up a Twitter account (and I feel a little dirty about it), so if you want to follow the sporadic posts that might show up there, you can…

Mystery Volcano Photo #21

After last week’s attempt to revive Mystery Volcano Photo – and the discovery (by me, thanks to you readers) of Tin Eye – I’ve had to ponder how to continue. Well, I think the best thing to do is to try using reader images that hopefully aren’t hiding out on the web somewhere. So, that…

It has been a quiet week, volcanically-speaking that is. Maybe they’re all watching the World Cup, but there hasn’t been a lot of new and exciting news to report this week. So, I thought this might be a good time to bring back Mystery Volcano Photo! Now, for those of you just joining us, I…

Anniversaries times two

Chaiten in Chile erupting on May 5, 2008, four days after the volcano came back to life after ~9,000 years of dormancy. Quick post … but until I was reminded by Eruptions reader Guillermo, I had forgotten two important anniversaries. First, today (May 1) marks the 2nd anniversary of the start of the Chaiten eruption…

Thanks a million!

I wanted to thank everyone who has made the blog such a fun thing to do and who pick up on reporting the events when I’m swamped. You’ve made…

Mystery Volcano Photo #19

It has been a while since I’ve posted a Mystery Volcano Photo, but here is a new one. Just a refresher on the current standings: The Bobs – 3 Don Crain – 3 gijs – 2 Boris Behncke – 2 volcanista – 1 Lockwood – 1 Elizabeth – 1 Ralph – 1 Anne – 1…

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.

As many Eruptions readers read, the headlines produced by MSNBC for their coverage of the recent Chilean earthquake raised my ire. To me, it represented the sensationalism of the events – but as with all things media-related, there is a lot of opinions on the matter. We were lucky to have Alan Boyle, science editor…
