Hood in Oregon, taken August 2008. Image by Erik Klemetti. Click on the image to see a larger version.</em></p> <p>Quick news!</p> <ul><li>I'm not going to go into too much depth right now about <a href="http://www.nature.com/ngeo/journal/vaop/ncurrent/abs/ngeo924.html" target="_blank">the recent study published in <em>Nature Geoscience</em> on Mt. Hood</a> in Oregon - I plan to talk about it more in a few weeks. Why is that? Well, the lead investigator on the study, <a href="http://www.science.oregonstate.edu/~kentad/" target="_blank">Dr. Adam Kent of Oregon State University</a>, is a friend of mine (and occasional <em>Eruptions</em> commenter) so I plan to get the details from him before posting. I was also peripherally associated with some of this work - mostly in the field acting as a pack mule and offering my witty observations. Nevertheless, the <a href="http://www.nsf.gov/news/news_summ.jsp?cntn_id=117434&amp;WT.mc_id=USNSF_58&amp;WT.mc_ev=click" target="_blank">long-and-short is that magma mixing seems to be a strong control</a> on eruptions at <a href="http://www.volcano.si.edu/world/volcano.cfm?vnum=1202-01-" target="_blank">Mt. Hood</a>, where mixing of two different magmas (one felsic, one mafic) can trigger an eruption. This mixing could be only weeks before the eruption, suggesting <a href="http://news.opb.org/article/10304-study-finds-key-past-eruptions-mount-hood/" target="_blank">short time intervals between the trigger of an eruption and the eruption itself</a>. Interestingly, Mt. Hood seems to play by its own rules in this respect relative to what we know about how other Cascade volcanoes behave.</li> <li><a href="http://www.staradvertiser.com/news/hawaiinews/20100803_Lava_flows_pretty_spectacular.html" target="_blank">Lava continues to flow</a> from Kilauea into the area around Kalapana, although it has slowed. Only <a href="http://www.hawaii247.com/2010/08/02/kalapana-lava-update-aug-2/" target="_blank">two breakouts were noted near Kalapana on August 1</a>, suggesting that less lava is flowing. However, lava continues to reach the ocean to the southwest of Kalapana.</li> <li><a href="http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/breakingnews/regions/view/20100803-284686/Taal-volcano-alert-level-down-island-still-off-limitsPhivolcs" target="_blank">PHIVOLCS lowered the alert status</a> at Taal to <a href="http://www.phivolcs.dost.gov.ph/index.php?option=com_content&amp;task=view&amp;id=393&amp;Itemid=1" target="_blank">level one after signs of eruption waned</a>, with only 5 earthquakes over the last 3 weeks. However,<a href="http://www.gmanews.tv/story/197593/phivolcs-lowers-taal-alert-level-to-1-but" target="_blank"> the restrictions for tourists remain in place</a> for the time being as new measures are created, especially when it comes to approached the main crater. At the crater, steam explosions can still happen unexpectedly and the concentrations of volcanic gases can be dangerous.</li> <li>The <a href="http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/" target="_blank">NASA Earth Observatory</a> posted <a href="http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/NaturalHazards/view.php?id=44995" target="_blank">an image of the plumes from Ambrym and Gaua</a> in Vanuatu. You can see the thin, wispy plumes of mostly steam and volcanic gases (which possibly some very minor ash) drifting to the northwest.</li> </ul></div> <span><a title="View user profile." href="/author/eklemetti" lang="" about="/author/eklemetti" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">eklemetti</a></span> <span>Tue, 08/03/2010 -

Simply like a video or a graphic or few for getting viewers psyched about what you are talking about.</p> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderLinks" arguments="0=2209578&amp;1=default&amp;2=en&amp;3=" token="b9aJIddyfDpdGPKd4ww0p5dOCNHDqmt0rLHKbtp1dKw"></drupal-render-placeholder> </div> <footer> <em>By <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.hellokittyjewelrystore.com/hello-kitty-jewelry/hello-kitty-bracelet/" lang="" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Hello Kitty Bracelet (not verified)</a> on 24 Nov 2010 <a href="https://scienceblogs.com/taxonomy/term/27911/feed#comment-2209578">#permalink</a></em> <article typeof="schema:Person" about="/user/0"> <div class="field field--name-user-picture field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <a href="/user/0" hreflang="und"><img src="/files/styles/thumbnail/public/default_images/icon-user.png?itok=yQw_eG_q" width="100" height="100" alt="User Image" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </a> </div> </article> </footer> </article> <article data-comment-user-id="0" id="comment-2209579" class="js-comment comment-wrapper clearfix"> <mark class="hidden" data-comment-timestamp="1292825449"></mark> <div class="well"> <strong></strong> <div class="field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Very useful article.

It is the end of the semester (well, school year) here at Denison, so I might be a little busy for the next couple weeks. </p> <p>Here are some news bits (with special thanks to all who emailed me some of these links):</p> <ul><li>Boris might have more information or opinion on this, but Italy is back in the news concerning the threat of volcanism to the country. This time <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/huff-wires/20100427/eu-italy-volcanoes/" target="_blank">the volcano is Ischia</a>, off the coast in the Bay of Naples. Guido Bertolaso of Italy's civil protection agency is quoted as saying that the <em>"magma chamber is loading up"</em> that the volcano. I'm still not entirely sure what that means, but Bertolaso implies that Ischia could be a bigger threat to the area than Vesuvius. <a href="http://www.volcano.si.edu/world/volcano.cfm?vnum=0101-03=" target="_blank">Ischia</a> last erupted <a href="http://www.volcano.si.edu/world/volcano.cfm?vnum=0101-03=&amp;volpage=erupt" target="_blank"> in 1302 AD</a> and tends to erupt explosively, forming dome complexes. It has also produced the 56,000 year old Green Tuff ignimbrite. </li><li>Speaking of Vesuvius, another statement from <a href="http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5gyVSX_85SgEZwEDCP-PZ_pYxSVbA" target="_blank">Bertolaso called Vesuvius</a> the "the biggest public safety problem there is in Italy" and warned that over one million people will be in danger when the volcano erupts again. At the same time, it was announced that <a href="http://news.xinhuanet.com/english2010/sci/2010-04/28/c_13270101.htm" target="_blank">Italy will begin monitoring undersea volcanoes</a> near their coast.</li> <li>The European airlines affected by the <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2010/04/eyjafjallajokull_eruption_upda_1.php" target="_blank">Eyjafjallajökull eruption</a> will be <a href="http://www1.voanews.com/english/news/europe/EU-Plans-Relief-for-Airline-Industry-Grounded-by-Volcano-92213039.html" target="_blank">getting monetary relief from the EU</a> for their estimated $3.3 billion dollar loss due to the airspace closure. We'll see how that changes the tenor of the <a href="http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5j-I5AlD20kk9qOuPAFRYPHPPNxAgD9FA3OR00" target="_blank">political debate on the ash</a>. The volcano continues to puff away. The current assessment from the <a href="http://en.vedur.is/earthquakes-and-volcanism/articles/nr/1884" target="_blank">Icelandic Met Office</a> suggests the volcano has reached a steady-state in the current eruption:<br /><blockquote><p><strong>Overall assessment</strong>: Plume elevations and magma discharge levels remain similar to the preceding four days of activity. Lava continues to flow north from the eruption site toward the head of the GÃgjökull glacier. Despite light ash-fall occurring up to 45 km west of the eruption site, today's explosive activity and ash production represents a fraction of conditions during the height of the eruption (14-17 April). There are no measurable indications that the eruption is about to end.<br /><strong>Magma flow</strong>: No measurements possible today; however, the intensity of the eruption suggests that the discharge level is similar to the preceding four days (i.e. 20-40 tonnes/s).<br /><strong>Meltwater</strong>: Continuing discharge of water from GÃgjökull due to ice-melt at the eruption site. Discharge at the old Markarfljót bridge, 18 km from GÃgjökull, is estimated at ~100 m3 s-1, of which ~30 m3 s-1 is baseflow.</p></blockquote> </li> <li>I mentioned <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2010/04/explosions_and_ash_at_guatemal.php" target="_blank">the eruption at Santiaguito</a> in Guatemala <a href="http://news.smh.com.au/breaking-news-world/volcano-spews-sand-ash-over-guatemala-20100427-to84.html" target="_blank">yesterday</a> and if you want to see some up-close (probably too up-close) video of an eruption of the volcano, check out <a href="http://www.examiner.com/x-33051-LA-Weather-Examiner~y2010m4d27-Another-eruption-Guatemalas-Santiaguito-Volcano-puts-an-unusual-and-violent-display-on-Monday" target="_blank">this tourist video</a>. Even looking at the conditions on the domes before the explosion, you have to wonder why anyone would think it was a good idea to hike up there.

Like INGV president Boschi's appeal for funding to monitor the Marsili seamount, here we have a similar manoeuvre, given that the Marsili appeal seems to have been successful (our good friend Silvio B.* just promised to give funding for the monitoring of Marsili and other submarine volcanoes in Italy). Ischia has not erupted for 700 years, which is a long period for humans but not for a volcano. Currently there is no indicator that an eruption is imminent - the Osservatorio Vesuviano of the INGV is monitoring Ischia along with Vesuvius and Campi Flegrei, and the information is presented here (in Italian):<br /><a href="http://www.ov.ingv.it/ischia.html">www.ov.ingv.it/ischia.html</a> ... currently there are no significant variations in the state of the activity of the volcano (same at Vesuvius and Campi Flegrei).</p> <p>But it is important to call public attention to the risk of future eruptions from these volcanoes, and while Vesuvius and Campi Flegrei are now known, also in the broad public, to be highly dangerous volcanoes, Ischia has been somewhat off the screen thus far. So it's good it is being named as a potential source of trouble - even though it might remain silent for a few hundred years, like Vesuvius; although things might start moving in a few weeks, in a few months ... no one knows in this moment.</p> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderLinks" arguments="0=2198650&amp;1=default&amp;2=en&amp;3=" token="jTDKJem17o6-P1rCJ6yPymTrP2vE27dDfnN0uQD9GsE"></drupal-render-placeholder> </div> <footer> <em>By <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.ct.ingv.it" lang="" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" content="Boris Behncke, Catania, Italy">Boris Behncke,… (not verified)</a> on 28 Apr 2010 <a href="https://scienceblogs.com/taxonomy/term/27911/feed#comment-2198650">#permalink</a></em> <article typeof="schema:Person" about="/user/0"> <div class="field field--name-user-picture field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <a href="/user/0" hreflang="und"><img src="/files/styles/thumbnail/public/default_images/icon-user.png?itok=yQw_eG_q" width="100" height="100" alt="User Image" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </a> </div> </article> </footer> </article> <article data-comment-user-id="0" id="comment-2198651" class="js-comment comment-wrapper clearfix"> <mark class="hidden" data-comment-timestamp="1272459772"></mark> <div class="well"> <strong></strong> <div class="field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Valahnúk cam showing a large 2 steam plumes masking a black one</p> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderLinks" arguments="0=2198651&amp;1=default&amp;2=en&amp;3=" token="lR_y_kxgS1FO0kYIfEKfBXy712Ywkxu-8Sc-HqN6Hqw"></drupal-render-placeholder> </div> <footer> <em>By <span lang="" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Gina Ct (not verified)</span> on 28 Apr 2010 <a href="https://scienceblogs.com/taxonomy/term/27911/feed#comment-2198651">#permalink</a></em> <article typeof="schema:Person" about="/user/0"> <div class="field field--name-user-picture field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <a href="/user/0" hreflang="und"><img src="/files/styles/thumbnail/public/default_images/icon-user.png?itok=yQw_eG_q" width="100" height="100" alt="User Image" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </a> </div> </article> </footer> </article> <article data-comment-user-id="0" id="comment-2198652" class="js-comment comment-wrapper clearfix"> <mark class="hidden" data-comment-timestamp="1272459870"></mark> <div class="well"> <strong></strong> <div class="field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Tremor under Katla - first I've seen since the start of the month.</p> <p><a href="http://en.vedur.is/earthquakes-and-volcanism/earthquakes/myrdalsjokull/">http://en.vedur.is/earthquakes-and-volcanism/earthquakes/myrdalsjokull/</a></p> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderLinks" arguments="0=2198652&amp;1=default&amp;2=en&amp;3=" token="7r3VX4Rtzu_f6JcFHm2s9PZkaKpQ5t8VwiBF5IxL8o8"></drupal-render-placeholder> </div> <footer> <em>By <span lang="" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Josh (not verified)</span> on 28 Apr 2010 <a href="https://scienceblogs.com/taxonomy/term/27911/feed#comment-2198652">#permalink</a></em> <article typeof="schema:Person" about="/user/0"> <div class="field field--name-user-picture field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <a href="/user/0" hreflang="und"><img src="/files/styles/thumbnail/public/default_images/icon-user.png?itok=yQw_eG_q" width="100" height="100" alt="User Image" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </a> </div> </article> </footer> </article> <article data-comment-user-id="0" id="comment-2198653" class="js-comment comment-wrapper clearfix"> <mark class="hidden" data-comment-timestamp="1272460025"></mark> <div class="well"> <strong></strong> <div class="field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Wow.

The Tjörnes fracture zone is like the San Andreas Fault, a transform fault where two plates glide past each other horizontally. This setting does not seem to be very likely to produce volcanism.</p> <p>But on the other hand, the seismic activity along the Tjörnes fracture zone may be an indicator that one of the two rift segments it separates is opening.<br /> Posted by: Boris Behncke, Catania, Italy | April 27, 2010 3:11 PM[...]</p> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderLinks" arguments="0=2198735&amp;1=default&amp;2=en&amp;3=" token="aICN1LPq9zwb35MG5LX_zQCJCxjMtVHOt_Ybk6P1ucY"></drupal-render-placeholder> </div> <footer> <em>By <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.snaefell.de" lang="" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Chris, Reykjavik (not verified)</a> on 29 Apr 2010 <a href="https://scienceblogs.com/taxonomy/term/27911/feed#comment-2198735">#permalink</a></em> <article typeof="schema:Person" about="/user/0"> <div class="field field--name-user-picture field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <a href="/user/0" hreflang="und"><img src="/files/styles/thumbnail/public/default_images/icon-user.png?itok=yQw_eG_q" width="100" height="100" alt="User Image" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </a> </div> </article> </footer> </article> <article data-comment-user-id="0" id="comment-2198736" class="js-comment comment-wrapper clearfix"> <mark class="hidden" data-comment-timestamp="1272516821"></mark> <div class="well"> <strong></strong> <div class="field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Renato Silveira (#89), I doubt she is done. All of yesterday, there was vigorous melting visible as a thick blanket of steam hiding everything above ~1200m from view and also all the water running into the Markarfljot visible at the foot of the glacier. Yesterday's flow was reported as 100-120 cu.m. (base flow 30) and temperature +11C as opposed to the normal +1½C. Tremor is still high and Jón Friman's seismographs, which he so kindly has made available to us, still show what I am given to understand is harmonic tremor which indicates movement of magma. When all of these signs abate, then and not before, I am willing to believe she is done.</p> <p>Philipp! Thank you for your wonderful timelapse youtube movies!

Not least because one of the greatest heroes of the Icelandic Sagas (Gunnar) lived nearby.</p> <p>Consider this poem by Jónas HallgrÃmsson (1807-1845):</p> <p>The sun's imperial pageant in the west<br /> purples the Eyjafjalla Glacier, standing<br /> huge in the east beneath its icy crest.<br /> It dominates the summer dusk, commanding<br /> the screes beneath it, sketched against the cold<br /> sky like a reef where tattered clouds are stranding.<br /> Hugging its roots, cascading waters hold<br /> hoarse conversation with the trolls where wary<br /> Frosti and Fjalar hoard their secret gold.<br /> Northward, you see the Summit Mountains, very<br /> sober and formal in their blue-black frocks,<br /> but girt with green where steep and valley marry<br /> and helmed with snow above their sable rocks.<br /> They stare at tarns whose streams will soon be plying<br /> their way through meadows filled with lazy flocks<br /> and sprinkled thick with little farmsteads, lying<br /> deep in the shadow of the sheltering heath.<br /> Far to the north, its snowy peak defying<br /> the heavens, Hekla stands on guard: beneath<br /> its bulwarks, bound in dungeons deep as night,<br /> Terror and Death are gnashing greedy teeth,<br /> while high above them palisades of bright<br /> obsidian glitter, glassy as a mirror.<br /> From there you look on scenes of pure delight:<br /> Wood River glides through leafy glens, then, nearer,<br /> murmuring more softly, makes its leisured way<br /> through farmlands ripe with radiant harvest --- dearer<br /> than gold --- and grassy meads where cattle stray.<br /> High on the hillsides, fragile blossoms gleam;<br /> golden-clawed eagles glide above their prey ---<br /> for fish are flashing there in every stream ---<br /> and whirring throngs of thrushes flit and trill<br /> through birch and beech groves lovely as a dream.<br /> Now, from the farmstead highest on the hill,<br /> two mounted men ride solemnly, descending<br /> down toward the ocean. Though the air is still,<br /> the winds at peace, a raging sea is sending<br /> its swell against the sand-shoals, where it raves<br /> in angry warfare, ancient and unending.<br /> Anchored offshore, a ship from Norway braves<br /> the whirling surf, its sail still furled, and turning<br /> dragonhead prow to face the furious waves.<br /> Aboard this boat, their spirits proud and burning,<br /> two brothers now must leave their native land,<br /> destined to suffer years of homesick yearning,<br /> far from their loved ones, on a foreign strand:<br /> outlaws and exiles, sent abroad to hide<br /> and pay the penalty the laws demand.<br /> Handsome and strong, his halberd at his side,<br /> Gunnar is leaving HlÃðarendi's hall;<br /> beside him, girt with grey-blue sword, astride<br /> a blood-red stallion, sitting staunch and tall<br /> and tied to Gunnar with intense devotion,<br /> Kolskeggur rides, a man admired by all.<br /> Thus, in a comity of mute emotion,<br /> the brothers guide their horses from the farm:<br /> Kolskeggur gazes out across the ocean,<br /> while Gunnar, glancing backward, finds the charm<br /> of home so master him, he does not care<br /> that savage foes have sworn to do him harm:<br /> "Never before has Iceland seemed so fair,<br /> the fields so white, the roses in such glory,<br /> such crowds of sheep and cattle everywhere!<br /> Here will I live, here die --- in youth, or hoary<br /> helpless old age --- as God decrees. Good-bye,<br /> brother and friend." Thus Gunnar's gallant story.<br /> For Gunnar felt it nobler far to die<br /> than flee and leave his native shores behind him,<br /> even though foes, inflamed with hate and sly,<br /> were forging links of death in which to bind him.<br /> His story still can make the heart beat high<br /> and here imagination still can find him,<br /> where Gunnar's Holm, all green with vegetation,<br /> glistens amid these wastes of devastation.<br /> Where fertile meads and fields were once outspread,<br /> foaming Cross River buries grass and stubble;<br /> the sun-flushed glacier, with its snowy head,<br /> sees savage torrents choke the plains with rubble;<br /> the dwarves are gone, the mountain trolls are dead;<br /> a desperate land abides its time of trouble;<br /> but here some hidden favor has defended<br /> the fertile holm where Gunnar's journey ended.</p> <p>(English translation by the American Dick Ringler -- great job).</p> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderLinks" arguments="0=2198823&amp;1=default&amp;2=en&amp;3=" token="u3MJ9_gYEW3PfHFMWfzuUHCtag40gMghQF-kU8afWEc"></drupal-render-placeholder> </div> <footer> <em>By <span lang="" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Anna, ReykjavÃk (not verified)</span> on 29 Apr 2010 <a href="https://scienceblogs.com/taxonomy/term/27911/feed#comment-2198823">#permalink</a></em> <article typeof="schema:Person" about="/user/0"> <div class="field field--name-user-picture field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <a href="/user/0" hreflang="und"><img src="/files/styles/thumbnail/public/default_images/icon-user.png?itok=yQw_eG_q" width="100" height="100" alt="User Image" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </a> </div> </article> </footer> </article> <article data-comment-user-id="0" id="comment-2198824" class="js-comment comment-wrapper clearfix"> <mark class="hidden" data-comment-timestamp="1272566629"></mark> <div class="well"> <strong></strong> <div class="field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Parclair #179 I typed a comma instead of a period.

Eyja was fogged in today, but it was last seen erupting from two craters in the summit icefield. The new crater still has ice close to its rim, and its activity has been strongly phreatic, with constant steam explosions throwing molten material high in the air. Lava bombs have been landing occasionally outside the crater, which has ice walls at least five hundred feet high, and probably a rock-pit extending far deeper, though it has not been visible in footage I have seen, as the heavy plume hides any view within.</p> <p>Eyjaâs older vent is less violent because the ice has melted well back from its rim, and less water is intruding. I have not seen any reports saying lava has risen to the surface or flowed out. Meltwater from the eruption has mobilized numerous lahars (hot mud-flows) that have ripped apart the glacier in the north-trending valley below the older crater, which is near the northern rim of the caldera. Lava would proceed that way if it emerged, and eventually it would reach the wide flat vale that opens to the west and south. That land was wonderfully verdant pasture, but it has been overwhelmed by the lahars, and a number of farms are ruined.</p> <p>Seismic tremor has been somewhat variable in recent days, but it remains strongly elevated. Magma is still moving in the volcanic system, but much of the tremor may result from degassing of lava in the upper part of the volcanic conduit, and from constant phreatic activity in the new crater. There have been very few earthquakes since the swarm that accompanied the onset of the summit eruption. However the recent quakes have shown a new and striking pattern. There have been two pairs of small temblors, each pair nearly simultaneous â but only one quake of each pair took place under the summit of Eyja. The companion quakes were centered ten miles away, under Katla caldera.</p> <p>This brings to mind the well-remembered pattern of Eyjaâs major quake swarm preceding the March eruption. Most quakes were centered beneath Eyjaâs comparatively small caldera, or under the col of lower ground to its east, where lava actually broke through. But a fair number of the small temblors also occurred under Katla caldera, at widely-scattered locations, but most frequently near the northwest rim, closest to that col where Eyjaâs breakout occurred. The lava of that first eruption was basalt. Katla is predominantly basaltic. Eyja has a different chemistry. It is is andesitic, and the current summit eruption has shifted chemistry toward Eyjaâs norm.</p> <p>Katla is a large volcano with a much more turbulent history than Eyja. By historic standards it is overdue for eruption. Eyja has erupted only a handful of times since Iceland was settled circa 900 AD. On each occasion Katla also erupted some months later. It is quite reasonable to expect an eruption from Katla within the next year or two, and possibly much sooner. It is also reasonable to conclude that Katlaâs deep source has fed the eruption attributed to Eyja, and perhaps most or all of Eyjaâs other eruptions.</p> <p>It may be that the smaller volcano has arisen from a mixed melt â partly from Katlaâs source, and partly from remelt by intrusion of superhot Katla magmas. This would account for the difference in chemistry between two volcanoes that share a common source. In any case, we can be quite confident that Iceland will see lots more volcanic activity from the Katla complex this year. Europe will be lucky indeed if this active period does not have more significant effects than the thin and harmless remnant of ash which so disrupted the lives of so many people a few weeks ago.<br /> 7:56 PM, Thursday, 29 Apr 10 |</p> <p><a href="http://www.seablogger.com/?p=21143&amp;cpage=1#comment-172060">http://www.seablogger.com/?p=21143&amp;cpage=1#comment-172060</a></p> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderLinks" arguments="0=2198834&amp;1=default&amp;2=en&amp;3=" token="tf3aIneWxssWS5XsPeKDhSIUcmQ9sOs-Ixe2Ul-UavI"></drupal-render-placeholder> </div> <footer> <em>By <span lang="" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">R. de Haan (not verified)</span> on 29 Apr 2010 <a href="https://scienceblogs.com/taxonomy/term/27911/feed#comment-2198834">#permalink</a></em> <article typeof="schema:Person" about="/user/0"> <div class="field field--name-user-picture field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <a href="/user/0" hreflang="und"><img src="/files/styles/thumbnail/public/default_images/icon-user.png?itok=yQw_eG_q" width="100" height="100" alt="User Image" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </a> </div> </article> </footer> </article> <article data-comment-user-id="0" id="comment-2198835" class="js-comment comment-wrapper clearfix"> <mark class="hidden" data-comment-timestamp="1272572158"></mark> <div class="well"> <strong></strong> <div class="field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Today's official report from the Icelandic Met Office has been posted:</p> <p><a href="http://en.vedur.is/media/jar/Eyjafjallajokull_status_2010-04-29_IES_IMO.pdf">http://en.vedur.is/media/jar/Eyjafjallajokull_status_2010-04-29_IES_IMO…</a></p> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderLinks" arguments="0=2198835&amp;1=default&amp;2=en&amp;3=" token="tWj7hZE_NtBbM6ibiKJ8M00I4y2XomxzrvstmOt7w7I"></drupal-render-placeholder> </div> <footer> <em>By <span lang="" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Holger, California (not verified)</span> on 29 Apr 2010 <a href="https://scienceblogs.com/taxonomy/term/27911/feed#comment-2198835">#permalink</a></em> <article typeof="schema:Person" about="/user/0"> <div class="field field--name-user-picture field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <a href="/user/0" hreflang="und"><img src="/files/styles/thumbnail/public/default_images/icon-user.png?itok=yQw_eG_q" width="100" height="100" alt="User Image" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </a> </div> </article> </footer> </article> <article data-comment-user-id="0" id="comment-2198836" class="js-comment comment-wrapper clearfix"> <mark class="hidden" data-comment-timestamp="1272573958"></mark> <div class="well"> <strong></strong> <div class="field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>@anna, 180, the hair is still up on the back of my neck.

It's quite obvious that he is confident that as Katla is overdue anyway, an eruption will occur that proves him correct about the link between the two. </p> <p>No, "Seablogger" is just another another of those individuals who hope to appear sagacious by couching the blatantly obvious in terms favourable to an increase in public admiration for their sagacity.

Here's what we know:</p> <p>There's been four eruptions of the Eyjafjalla volcano since Iceland was settled - 920AD(?) VEI 3, 1612 VEI 2, 1821-3 VEI 2 and 2010- VEI 4(?). In between, there have been non-eruptive intrusion events such as the 1994 and 1999(?) ones. Katla has erupted far more frequently, 27 times since 920AD, so in that sense of course an eruption of Eyjafjalla will be followed by an eruption of Katla. The interval for the three past events is - 920(?) same year (note that the E date is given as ? and it is not clear which volcano erupted first), 1612 same year Oct 12th (although no dates are given for E, its eruption preceeded K by anything from days to the better part of a year), 1821-3 E eruption ended on Jan 1st and Katla eruption began on June 26th, half a year later. (Source: Smithsonian Institution)</p> <p>From the information available at Nordic Volcanological Center, we know that they have separate "plumbing systems" of different nature. Eyjafjalla has a series of sills at 5-7 km depth and possibly a small magma chamber at 1½-2 km depth whereas Katla has a large magma chamber at shallow depth, 2-3 km, below a caldera. The current eruption of the Eyjafjalla volcano is different in that the magma of the main eruption is similar in composition to the usual Katla samples.</p> <p>IF there is a connection between the two volcanoes, I can come up with three possible explanations:</p> <p>a) A common, deep source at ~20-25km depth. This is not a very good explanation as a mechanism that explains why eruptions of Katla are seven times more frequent than eruptions at Eyjafjalla must be provided. Also, an explanation must be found as to why an eruption of Katla never has been followed by one of Eyjafjalla.</p> <p>b) A physical connection, sill or fracture, that runs from Eyjafjalla upwards until it enters Katla's plumbing and magma chamber where the primitive basalt magma triggers an eruption. Since the Goðabunga "cryptodome" intrusion is about 2/3 of the distance from E to K and is credited to Eyjafjalla, this explanation is at least possible if not plausible. However, if such a physical connection existed, one would expect it to receive some sort of prominent mention in the Norvol papers and data.</p> <p>c) Pressure release. As magma intrusions occur regularly, the crust would be in a constant state of uplift and tension. An eruption of Eyjafjalla where this pressure is relieved over a large area - and we know from the Norvol data that such an area, 20-25km in diameter, exists - might conceivably (by leverage) place further stress on the crust over Katla and its shallow magma chamber, sufficient to trigger a breach and a subsequent eruption. This to me anyway, seems very far-fetched and I'm not even sure its a scientifically sound hypothesis.</p> <p>My amateur opinion is that all these models are far too elaborated and far-fetched and that Ockham's Razor provides the correct answer - the observed correlation between eruptions of the Eyjafjalla volcano and Katla are due to coincidence.</p> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderLinks" arguments="0=2198845&amp;1=default&amp;2=en&amp;3=" token="VnjN3uOvArrS0Z5CWlyQVSbWWx8860bGUHahkPXn_Wo"></drupal-render-placeholder> </div> <footer> <em>By <span lang="" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Henrik, Swe (not verified)</span> on 29 Apr 2010 <a href="https://scienceblogs.com/taxonomy/term/27911/feed#comment-2198845">#permalink</a></em> <article typeof="schema:Person" about="/user/0"> <div class="field field--name-user-picture field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <a href="/user/0" hreflang="und"><img src="/files/styles/thumbnail/public/default_images/icon-user.png?itok=yQw_eG_q" width="100" height="100" alt="User Image" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </a> </div> </article> </footer> </article> <article data-comment-user-id="0" id="comment-2198846" class="js-comment comment-wrapper clearfix"> <mark class="hidden" data-comment-timestamp="1272594777"></mark> <div class="well"> <strong></strong> <div class="field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>@scarlet #171</p> <p>Thanks for the link.

I would counter that Occam's Razor might state that it is rather surprising that the three previous historic Eyja eruptions have always had a Katla eruptyion following them within a year. That seems statistically very unusual - a quick play in excel shows this to be the case. I have also seen yet to be published good evidence for near-synchroneity of the 920AD event (both perhaps erupting simultaneously), which strongly argues against mere coincidence for the Eyja-Katla connection. This paper will be coming out rather soon I think. </p> <p>I agree with some of your reasoning on mechanisms though - difficult to say what the mechanism is, particularly given that it needs to be one where activity in Eyja can precede Katla, and not the other way round. I'd maybe favour destabilising of the larger Katla magma chamber in some way, as it may be a directional mechanism as Eyja doesn't have much of a magma chamber.

(herein lies a tale I am sure) I'm pretty certain that the paired 920AD eruption wasn't present on the <a href="http://www.volcano.si.edu">www.volcano.si.edu</a> until very recently. Also, the dating on Eyjafjalla is done by "Tephrochronology" whereas the Katla date is based on "Historical Records". Normally, there is a margin of error when using methods such as tephrochronology, but in this case, none is given. Also, the 920AD eruption was a small VEI 2 and thus limited to Iceland which would make the identification less certain than had tephra been found in Scandinavia and the British isles as well. Therefore the 920AD date given for Eyajafjalla is not scientifically sound! Most likely, it has been lumped together with the 920AD Katla eruption because someone believes that when E erupts, K follows - therefore E's eruption must have been in 920AD, prior to that of K!</p> <p>That still gives us two coinciding eruptions, 1612 and 1823. Until someone provides a reasonable, non-metaphysical mechanism that explains just how E may set off K but K doesn't set off E, Ockham's Razor (William Ockham) disposes of the correlation as coincidence.</p> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderLinks" arguments="0=2198851&amp;1=default&amp;2=en&amp;3=" token="aG2LGcAzkrHlOBZS-OhPXtthXIF-OMsUeQWAPfBoyC4"></drupal-render-placeholder> </div> <footer> <em>By <span lang="" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Henrik, Swe (not verified)</span> on 30 Apr 2010 <a href="https://scienceblogs.com/taxonomy/term/27911/feed#comment-2198851">#permalink</a></em> <article typeof="schema:Person" about="/user/0"> <div class="field field--name-user-picture field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <a href="/user/0" hreflang="und"><img src="/files/styles/thumbnail/public/default_images/icon-user.png?itok=yQw_eG_q" width="100" height="100" alt="User Image" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </a> </div> </article> </footer> </article> <article data-comment-user-id="0" id="comment-2198852" class="js-comment comment-wrapper clearfix"> <mark class="hidden" data-comment-timestamp="1272604428"></mark> <div class="well"> <strong></strong> <div class="field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>@Gordys, that is a neat little demo, thanks.

It is like - assuming - oil changes are more frequent than tyre changes in a car, that the oil change must influence the tyre change. (Ignoring the common cause that it is in for a service).<br /> Eg. if an oil change is every 600 km and a tyre change every 3600km - then amazingly the probability that an oil change will be following by a tyre change is 1/6...even though mechanically they dont even have to have correlation. An extreme case would be cars in the artic that are left idling at night through the winter.</p> <p>So there are some subtleties - even if my example is not the best. Playing around though you can end up with some stuff like the probability of an eruption of Katla given Eyjafjalla is 4/27=0.148 and P(Katla)=0.026 and P(Eyjafjalla)= 0.0039 still the causation is meaningless to interpret I didnt even bother doing correlation.</p> <p>There are other problems too, such as basing the numbers on the last 1010 yrs, when from what I know the area is ~700k yrs old. So maybe what we know might not be that true. (The last 1000 yrs being abnormal).</p> <p>The only interesting stuff I was able to calculate was that Eyjafjalla "should" erupt approximately every 6.5 Katla eruptions. Which if you follow probability means that Katla wont be due to erupt after Eyjafjalla until another 2 or so eruptions of Katla are done.

It's certainly not assumption! So that, allied with the other two close eruptions in 1612 and 1821-23 (based on historical observation, not tephrochronology) rather strongly argue for a link. It doesn't *prove* a link, as coincidence is still possible but unlikely, (however you spell Ockham, Occam is also in common usage).

It's interesting to compare the photograph to the present day view from the Vodafone cam, the new layer of gravel/sediment just by the opening must be about 20 m thick.</p> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderLinks" arguments="0=2198891&amp;1=default&amp;2=en&amp;3=" token="QS950AopdN4Fg01NVeoIfoAfnWErg6m0hKE1AKfqMNg"></drupal-render-placeholder> </div> <footer> <em>By <span lang="" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Anna, ReykjavÃk (not verified)</span> on 30 Apr 2010 <a href="https://scienceblogs.com/taxonomy/term/27911/feed#comment-2198891">#permalink</a></em> <article typeof="schema:Person" about="/user/0"> <div class="field field--name-user-picture field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <a href="/user/0" hreflang="und"><img src="/files/styles/thumbnail/public/default_images/icon-user.png?itok=yQw_eG_q" width="100" height="100" alt="User Image" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </a> </div> </article> </footer> </article> <article data-comment-user-id="0" id="comment-2198892" class="js-comment comment-wrapper clearfix"> <mark class="hidden" data-comment-timestamp="1272618498"></mark> <div class="well"> <strong></strong> <div class="field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>aack - voda cams either overloaded or down again, and no cache from today....</p> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderLinks" arguments="0=2198892&amp;1=default&amp;2=en&amp;3=" token="5L1GVxpwBHS9-MwTcRm9VWk2cl1LcOGz9FCVhkrISHc"></drupal-render-placeholder> </div> <footer> <em>By <span lang="" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">birdseyeUSA (not verified)</span> on 30 Apr 2010 <a href="https://scienceblogs.com/taxonomy/term/27911/feed#comment-2198892">#permalink</a></em> <article typeof="schema:Person" about="/user/0"> <div class="field field--name-user-picture field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <a href="/user/0" hreflang="und"><img src="/files/styles/thumbnail/public/default_images/icon-user.png?itok=yQw_eG_q" width="100" height="100" alt="User Image" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </a> </div> </article> </footer> </article> <article data-comment-user-id="0" id="comment-2198893" class="js-comment comment-wrapper clearfix"> <mark class="hidden" data-comment-timestamp="1272620114"></mark> <div class="well"> <strong></strong> <div class="field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Oh, but there is... from 1144 hours onward.</p> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderLinks" arguments="0=2198893&amp;1=default&amp;2=en&amp;3=" token="76EsHDncu2BdsdTuzHvo6zEHwm6wnjlk3JIuPDEMyDo"></drupal-render-placeholder> </div> <footer> <em>By <span lang="" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Kultsi, Askola, FI (not verified)</span> on 30 Apr 2010 <a href="https://scienceblogs.com/taxonomy/term/27911/feed#comment-2198893">#permalink</a></em> <article typeof="schema:Person" about="/user/0"> <div class="field field--name-user-picture field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <a href="/user/0" hreflang="und"><img src="/files/styles/thumbnail/public/default_images/icon-user.png?itok=yQw_eG_q" width="100" height="100" alt="User Image" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </a> </div> </article> </footer> </article> <article data-comment-user-id="0" id="comment-2198894" class="js-comment comment-wrapper clearfix"> <mark class="hidden" data-comment-timestamp="1272620884"></mark> <div class="well"> <strong></strong> <div class="field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>@klutsi..Patience, I tell myself, patience!

The stinkstorm is in full swing about sizes of ash particles, when you can fly, when you cant and who is going to be liable for it if they get it wrong. The ash is very fine, but the various insurance companies are letting the operators know in very terse emails and letters that if there are ANY incidents of any kind they will cancel the policies to the carriers who are flying through it. E.g. Power by the Hour engine lessors. I can get the mental picture. Its like leasing a car with tires, battery, maintenance and insurance. You lease it and on the way out you quietly mention that your new Chevy Malibu is going to be used for off road racing and you grin on the way out. </p> <p> This hasnt happened before (eruptions) except in limited cases and the real difference is the types of aircraft engines that are being used. The newer ones will be far more sensitive to ash than the older ones as will the airplanes themselves. Thus if they come up with a standard (years away) the newer airplane engine operators will be at a disadvantage to the older ones because of the more open clearances in the engines..They can suck more down and burp it out. But we arent talking about the difference between miniscule and large pumice balls either. Type of ash is also going to have to be considered. </p> <p>Now they want to be compensated for "the call". Well for me the CALL was made as a prevention to loss of life. They can go take a flying...... . None of these test flights were scientific "tests" and they pulled off a PR blitz to get them flying. Scientific in the airline industry in something like this is going to take years to develop and it may even be impossible due to the composition of ash. Going to have to take particles of sizes, wet them, heat them, shoot them in quantity, simulate altitudes...Anyone got a spare billion or two around to build that test bed? </p> <p> There is something called condition monitoring or CM. The condition monitoring idea is to pull the components off of aircraft and replace them before they fail. For an ash standard to be produced it will likely have to be flown in a test cell and all sorts of conditions simulated to get a result. Each time that engine is going to have to be torn down to check the effects. It goes without saying that its like throwing sand down the car engine. How many before the SOB breaks? And it aint gonna be good on it and it will have to be built to new each time they do it. New blades, new bearings, seals. </p> <p>They will have to produce a result for every component and blade section, pumps, electrics.

The volcano did produce some explosive activity then, and a series of strong tectonic earthquakes at the nearby subduction zone prompted a seismologist to predict a devastating eruption likely to destroy the island. Thereupon the population was evacuated. The cataclysmic eruption never happened. The same scientist later predicted some major action at Stromboli after a series of subduction-related tectonic earthquakes below the Aeolian arc. Also this did not happen - if not with an 8-year delay, because Stromboli did erupt on a larger scale in 2002-2003 (and again in 2007). However, such a time lag is far too long to seriously consider a correlation especially at a volcano that erupts constantly on a rather modest scale.</p> <p>But this time, it looks like the situation at Gaua is getting more serious. If not a cataclysmic (like, Krakatau-type) event, a major eruption could certainly threaten the lives and property of the population on this rather small island. And the volcano is indeed a cone in a lake, so that explosive magma-water interaction cannot be excluded especially if fracturing occurs on the side of the cone.</p> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderLinks" arguments="0=2196790&amp;1=default&amp;2=en&amp;3=" token="X45dH1e-G_KcPQVU88PErCOWvt74-bpuJIEccpdgqGc"></drupal-render-placeholder> </div> <footer> <em>By <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.ct.ingv.it" lang="" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Boris Behncke (not verified)</a> on 20 Apr 2010 <a href="https://scienceblogs.com/taxonomy/term/27911/feed#comment-2196790">#permalink</a></em> <article typeof="schema:Person" about="/user/0"> <div class="field field--name-user-picture field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <a href="/user/0" hreflang="und"><img src="/files/styles/thumbnail/public/default_images/icon-user.png?itok=yQw_eG_q" width="100" height="100" alt="User Image" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </a> </div> </article> </footer> </article> <article data-comment-user-id="0" id="comment-2196791" class="js-comment comment-wrapper clearfix"> <mark class="hidden" data-comment-timestamp="1271811295"></mark> <div class="well"> <strong></strong> <div class="field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>There has been a lot of speculation in the media wether there is a connection or not between Lady Eyaf and her big sister Katla.</p> <p>I would like to ask you guys who knows alot more about the mechanics than i do if this might be true:</p> <p>There are two volcanoes within close proximity of eachother. Eyafjallajökull which historically has set off Katla on 2-3 occasions.<br /> Can the reason be related to inflating / deflating? </p> <p>What I mean is that during the quiet years both Eyafjalla and Katla inflate due to increase in pressure from the magma reserviors<br /> beneath them. Now that Eyafjalla has erupted the pressure releases and by logic it should deflate right? And since Katla has not<br /> erupted it should by the same logic have more strain due to the deflation of Eyafjalla (like a rubberband between Eyaf and Katla).<br /> And the magmatic pressure continues to build beneath Katla until she blows her top. And then she calms down and Katla deflates<br /> back down to "normal" levels and settles right beside Eyafjalla.</p> <p>This is just a theory i thought of and I might be dead wrong. I realize that there might be other factors involved also as elevation of<br /> the two, if they share "plumbing" or not and so on...</p> <p>But if Eyafjalla´s reservoir is more shallow that Katla´s then that would explain why Eyafjalla blows first and Katla a while after due<br /> to increase in strain.</p> <p>Just my 2 cents..please correct me if im wrong..:) Im here to learn..</p> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderLinks" arguments="0=2196791&amp;1=default&amp;2=en&amp;3=" token="Lol5HE8N40rBksI-A9baHJBc-WxIdHXS5jM2kf9-OfQ"></drupal-render-placeholder> </div> <footer> <em>By <span lang="" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Daniel (not verified)</span> on 20 Apr 2010 <a href="https://scienceblogs.com/taxonomy/term/27911/feed#comment-2196791">#permalink</a></em> <article typeof="schema:Person" about="/user/0"> <div class="field field--name-user-picture field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <a href="/user/0" hreflang="und"><img src="/files/styles/thumbnail/public/default_images/icon-user.png?itok=yQw_eG_q" width="100" height="100" alt="User Image" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </a> </div> </article> </footer> </article> <article data-comment-user-id="0" id="comment-2196792" class="js-comment comment-wrapper clearfix"> <mark class="hidden" data-comment-timestamp="1271813379"></mark> <div class="well"> <strong></strong> <div class="field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>@Boris, whats your take with the increased level on Yasur (with lava hot spot visible from satelitte) and Ambyrn ash eruption just recently.

All that can be said is that it's possible, but note that Yasyur and Ambrym are, like Stromboli, volcanoes that are continuously active and they have fluctuations in their activity, and what we see currently at these two volcanoes does not seem to be extraordinarily strong activity.</p> <p>But it is true that sometimes there seem to be regional fluctuations in volcanic and seismic activity, which affect more than one volcano, like what we had here in Sicily in the fall of 2002 (6 September: earthquake in Palermo, 27 October: large eruption at Etna, 4 November: submarine (phreatic) explosion at Panarea, Aeolian Islands, 30 December: major eruption at Stromboli).

Perhaps some system of hours in different zones, i.e. clean air, slightly ashy air, very ashy air, crap air. But who is going to say where the boundaries are, and when conditions have changed.

PHIVOLCS <a href="http://www.mb.com.ph/articles/238377/mayon-now-alert-level-2" target="_blank">lowered the alert at Mayon to Level 2</a> (from 3) based on the reduced seismicity and volcanic gas emissions - but they offered the usual caveat that the volcano may go back up to 3 at any moment.

By no means is this supposed to capture <em>every</em> event, but rather the highlight/lowlights and what most captivated me during 2009. I'll be announcing the winner of the <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/12/nominations_for_the_2009_volca.php" target="_blank">2009 Pliny for Volcanic Event of the Year</a> tomorrow.</p> <p><img src="http://eruptions.files.wordpress.com/2009/01/waimangu-steam.jpg?w=300" /><br /><em>Waimangu Geothermal Valley in New Zealand, taken in January 2009 by Erik Klemetti.</em></p> <p><strong><a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/01/" target="_blank">January</a></strong><br /> The year started out with a trip to New Zealand (well, for me at least) and vistas of the <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/01/repairing-after-eruption-the-waimangu-valley-and-mt-tarawera.php" target="_blank">Waimangu Valley</a>, formed in the 1886 eruption of Tarawera on the North Island. We were also still thinking about the <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/01/interview-with-yvo-chief-jacob-lowenstern-on-the-yellowstone-swarm.php" target="_blank">late 2008 earthquake swarm at Yellowstone</a>, which didn't lead to anything in 2009. British scientists suggested that Antarctica has been <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/01/the-mysteries-of-antarctic-volcanism.php" target="_blank">experiencing subglacial eruption</a>, which might account for some of the melting of the ice on the southern continent. However, what really got our attention in January was the <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/redoubt/" target="_blank">Mt. Redoubt</a> in Alaska, with <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/01/redoubt-on-alert.php" target="_blank">the volcano being put on alert</a> by AVO on January 26th - leading to months of speculation about what might happen. By the end of the month (4 days later), the <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/01/redoubt-is-rapidly-captivating-the-country.php" target="_blank">volcano was all over the news</a> and concern about the <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/01/redoubt-oil-and-mitigation-a-tale-of-volcanism.php" target="_blank">Drift River Oil Terminal was high</a>.</p> <p><strong><a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/02/" target="_blank">February</a></strong><br /> It was the Redoubt wait that dominated the volcano news during February. <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/02/redoubt-mini-update-292009.php" target="_blank">Earthquakes, steam and speculation</a> were the order of the day. We also got news of <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/02/ongoing-submarine-volcanism-in-the-mariana-islands.php" target="_blank">recent eruptions at NW-Rota 1 from Dr. Ed Kohut</a> off on a research cruise in the Pacific. Chaiten was still going strong, but the social fallout from the <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/02/concern_lingers_angers_flare_a.php" target="_blank">relocation of the town of Chaiten</a> was proving to be a major problem was well. Finally, volcano monitoring made a surprise splash at the end of the month when Louisiana governor <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/02/volcano_monitoring_in_the_news.php" target="_blank">Bobby Jindal suggested that monitoring volcanoes was "wasteful"</a> - he learned quickly that badmouthing volcanologists is not a good idea.</p> <p><strong><a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/03/" target="_blank">March</a></strong><br /> We had to wait most of the month, but <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/03/redoubt_back_to_yellow_alert.php" target="_blank">right after AVO thought things were winding down</a> at Redoubt, the volcano goes and <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/03/redoubt_erupts_1.php" target="_blank">erupts anyway on March 23rd</a>. It wasn't <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/03/new_images_from_the_redoubt_er.php" target="_blank">a little eruption either</a>, throwing ash to over 50,000 ft / 15 km and eventually <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/03/redoubt_ash_throws_off_alaskas.php" target="_blank">closing the international airport in Anchorage</a>. March ended up being a double feature, with the surprise - and very impressive - eruption of <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/hunga_tonga_hunga_haapai_1/" target="_blank">Hunga Tonga - Hunga Ha'apai</a> in the island nation of Tonga. This eruption started as an undersea eruption <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/03/new_eruption_in_tonga.php" target="_blank">noticed by commercial pilots</a> in the area and quickly became a <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/03/rooster_tails_and_new_islands_1.php" target="_blank">classic island-building event</a>. We also had a lot of noise about the <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/03/bombay_beachsan_andreas_earthq.php" target="_blank">earthquake swarms in the Bombay Beach</a> area long the San Andreas fault in southern California. March also marked my move from Wordpress to ScienceBlogs - so I send a special thanks to all the readers who came with me and all my new readers - if you can believe it, <em>Eruptions</em> will be just short of <u>half a million visits</u> in the 10 months since coming to ScienceBlogs!</p> <p><img src="http://www.elpais.com/recorte/20090405elpepuint_5/XLCO/Ies/20090405elpepuint_5.jpg" width="400" /><br /><em>Llaima in Chile erupting in April 2009.</em></p> <p><strong><a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/04/" target="_blank">April</a></strong><br /> April ended up being my busiest month - with over 50 posts in the month alone. A lot of that was, again, <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/04/oil_from_the_drift_river_termi.php" target="_blank">dominated</a> by <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/04/redoubt_eruption_update_for_47.php" target="_blank">Redoubt's activity</a> that continued throughout the month. We also saw impressive eruptions of <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/04/llaima_eruption_intensifies.php" target="_blank">Llaima in Chile</a> and <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/04/first_eruption_at_fernandina_s.php" target="_blank">new fissure eruptions</a> at <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/04/fernandina_eruption_taking_out.php" target="_blank">Fernandina</a> in the Galapagos Islands. I addressed some concerns people have on the <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/04/could_geothermal_drilling_caus.php" target="_blank">dangers of geothermal drilling causing an eruption</a> (short answer: probably not). We also got an inside look at the <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/04/what_i_didnt_know_about_the_us.php" target="_blank">USGS Volcano Hazards Program</a> and I got all worked up about some <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/04/terrible_volcano_journalism_an.php" target="_blank">questionable volcano journalism</a> (what a surprise).</p> <p><strong><a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/04/" target="_blank">May</a></strong><br /> May marked two anniversaries: <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/05/eruptions_turns_1.php" target="_blank">one was for <em>Eruptions</em></a>, the other, more important one marked <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/05/one_year_of_the_anniversary_of.php" target="_blank">one year of eruptions at Chaiten</a> in Chile. The eruption that got me on this blogging track was still going strong after a year, with at least three domes growing inside the Chaiten caldera. Of course, we were also still waiting for<a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/05/waiting_for_redoubts_big_boom.php" target="_blank"> the big dome collapse at Redoubt</a> as well, but little came of that. We also got the <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/05/friday_flotsam_1.php" target="_blank">first glimpse of West Mata</a> erupting in the Lau Basin of the Pacific - the media would really get fired up about this in <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/12/friday_flotsam_undersea_volcan.php" target="_blank">December when video was released</a>. However, the most exciting event of the month was <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/05/an_eruption_brewing_in_saudi_a.php" target="_blank">the earthquake swarm</a> and potential threat of volcanic eruption in the <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/05/harrat_lunayyir_and_the_saudi.php" target="_blank">Harrat Lunayyir region of Saudi Arabia</a>. At times, I felt like I was the only person <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/05/more_signs_point_towards_a_sau.php" target="_blank">covering the event</a>, getting reports from people on the ground in <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/06/mini_update_on_the_saudi_arabi.php" target="_blank">Saudi Arabia</a> - but when all was said-and-done, no eruption came.</p> <p><strong><a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/06/" target="_blank">June</a></strong><br /> We had two volcanoes headed in opposite directions in June. First,<a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/06/alert_level_at_redoubt_lowered.php" target="_blank"> Redoubt settled down</a> for the summer. Second, <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/sarychev_peak/" target="_blank">Sarychev Peak</a> in Russia blew its top in a <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/06/eruption_at_sarychev_peak_thre.php" target="_blank">spectacular fashion</a> - disrupting air traffic all across the Pacific. The eruption was a <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/06/sarychev_peak_eruption_update_2.php" target="_blank">major sulfur dioxide event</a> and provided <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/06/sarychev_peak_update_for_61820.php" target="_blank">one of the most stunning volcano images</a> - well, ever.<a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/06/sarychev_peak_before_and_after.php" target="_blank"> The eruption did a number</a> to the small island of Matau. Sarychev Peak wasn't the only volcano on the Kamchatka Peninsula making noise: <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/06/shiveluch_has_second_large_eru.php" target="_blank">Shiveluch also had a major eruption</a>. In June, we also got the first taste of the "<a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/06/mt_saint_helens_supervolcano.php" target="_blank">Mt. Saint Helens: Supervolcano</a>" controversy and <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/10/the_return_of_the_dreaded_gian.php" target="_blank">media disaster that would come back later in the year</a>. Finally, my colleagues at UC Davis, Naomi Marks, Peter Schiffman and Robert Zeirenberg, made the news by <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/06/drilling_into_active_magma.php" target="_blank">drilling into an active rhyolite magma</a> in Iceland - nice way to end the month!</p> <p><img src="http://api.ning.com/files/hfNJx04dxeufkp4KDYnpTV0GE51g7ik0ptsbJp-14YkwDA1KOobxwQ39n-EJvn-cq0mT0J5*ZCMVO4XRxDImVitduZlPGt5g/SarychevPeakVolcano.jpg" width="400" /><br /><em>Sarychev Peak erupting in June 2009.</em></p> <p><strong><a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/07/" target="_blank">July</a></strong><br /> Volcanically speaking, things quieted down during summer after a very busy spring. The biggest news for July was likely eruption at <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/07/siusgs_weekly_volcano_activity_14.php" target="_blank">Mando Hararo in Ethiopia</a> - adding more fissure volcanism in the East African Rift. Of course, it might have been most fascinating to <em>Eruptions</em> readers because <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/07/new_eruption_in_ethiopia.php" target="_blank">one of your own might have been the first to notice the eruption actually occurred</a>. Over in Hawai`i, a rockfall captured on camera <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/07/rockfall_snuffs_out_the_halema.php" target="_blank">temporarily "snuffed out" the Halema`uma`u vent</a>, but it didn't take long for <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/07/halemaumau_rockfall_update_lav.php" target="_blank">lava to retake the crater</a>. Mayon offered foreshadowing of things to come with <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/07/evacuations_extended_around_ma.php" target="_blank">evacuations</a> prompted by the beginning of the <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/12/mayon_update_for_12282009.php" target="_blank">current eruption</a>.</p> <p><strong><a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/08/" target="_blank">August</a></strong><br /> August was especially quite around these parts - thanks partially to my move from California to Ohio, but also to the fact that, well, not much happened (so much for 2009 being an "anomalously volcanic" year). We started the month with some news that there might have been <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/08/eruption_occuring_on_venus.php" target="_blank">a volcanic eruption on Venus</a>. I've since lost track of the research on this event - anybody have any new theories in what happened on our sister planet? Kamchatka was in the news, mostly because it was <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/08/the_ongoing_eruption_at_koryak.php" target="_blank">such a volcanically active area in 2009</a> - 5 volcanoes were erupting at once during August - and <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/07/new_geyser_appears_in_kamchatk.php" target="_blank">a new geyser</a> was found as well. And if you need something to read in the long winter months, check out <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/08/my_favorite_volcano_books.php" target="_blank">my favorite volcano books</a>.</p> <p><strong><a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/09/" target="_blank">September</a></strong><br /> Things picked back up once the fall began. I dabbled in the world of "<a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/09/friday_flotsam_kanloan_seismic.php" target="_blank">manmade volcanoes</a>" (short answer: bad idea unless <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/12/the_perfect_holiday_gift_for_c.php" target="_blank">they erupt a dinosaur</a>). In what now seems premature, the <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/09/monday_musings_the_end_at_mont.php" target="_blank">eruption at Soufriere Hills on Montserrat was declared "over"</a> after 6 months of quiet at the volcano. We all know what came <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/10/soufriere_hills_and_kliuchevsk.php" target="_blank">two weeks later</a>. The international media was all over the proclamation that <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/09/is_australia_overdue_for_a_vol.php" target="_blank"> Australia was "overdue"</a> for a <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/09/monday_musings_more_australian.php" target="_blank">volcanic eruption</a> - a notion that most people think is fear-mongering at its best. There was some suggestion of <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/09/whats_might_be_happening_at_mt.php" target="_blank">something happening at Mt. Rainier</a> - but what exactly is still a mystery. Finally, after 6 months of eruptions and noise, <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/09/wednesday_whatzits_redoubt_ret.php" target="_blank">AVO lowered the warning level at Redoubt to green (normal)</a>. The eruption was over ... or is it?</p> <p><img src="http://colombia-huila.gov.co/apc-aa-files/64326135663237316464316237323734/Nevado_del_Huila_en_Erupci_n.jpg" width="400" /><br /><em>Nevado del Huila in Colombia steaming from the summit in 2009.</em></p> <p><strong><a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/10/" target="_blank">October</a></strong><br /> With Redoubt out of the picture (for now), a couple of new volcanoes took to the streets. <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/10/eruption_at_gaua.php" target="_blank">Gaua in Vanuatu</a> erupted, prompting <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/10/thursday_throwdown_updates_fro.php" target="_blank">evacuations of people</a> living near the island volcano. We also saw more <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/10/colombian_volcano_update_huila.php" target="_blank">activity at Huila</a> in Colombia - it was a busy year for volcanic eruptions in Colombia, with eruptions at <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/huila/" target="_blank">Huila</a> and <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/galeras/" target="_blank">Galeras</a>, along with signs of life from the slumbering volcano of <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/machin/" target="_blank">Machin</a> (enough to prompt the Colombian government to ponder diverting a major highway to avoid it getting cut by a Machin eruption). A study in <em>Nature</em> was published showing that the magma erupted during 2008-09 at Chaiten <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/10/the_speedy_magma_of_chaiten_an.php" target="_blank">shot through the crust</a> - and then you got to ask Dr. Jonathan Castro, coauthor of the study - <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/10/answers_to_your_chaiten_questi.php" target="_blank">all about Chaiten</a>. I also attended the GSA Annual Meeting in Portland, Oregon, where I found out some fun information on <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/10/gsa_2009_wrap_up_-_part_1.php" target="_blank">Toba, New York kimberlites and Mackenzie Pass</a>.</p> <p><strong><a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/11/" target="_blank">November</a></strong><br /> Two non-events dominated a lot of the discussion during November. First was the attention paid to the idea <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/11/the_tale_of_two_articles_are_w.php" target="_blank">that geologists could "destroy Naples"</a> through <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/11/monday_musings_evacuations_nea.php" target="_blank">exploratory drilling into the Campei Flegrei</a>. Second was the non-eruption of Karkar in Papau New Guinea - we all thought a <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/11/large_eruption_at_karkar_in_pa.php" target="_blank">major eruption occurred</a>, but now it looks like the satellites might have been a bit confused, thanks to <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/11/the_mysterious_non-eruption_of.php" target="_blank">reports from the ground</a>. Dr. Boris Behncke <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/11/qa_dr_boris_behncke_answers_yo" target="_blank">answered your questions</a> about <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/11/qa_dr_boris_behncke_answers_yo_1.php" target="_blank">Italian volcanoes</a>. Both <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/11/monday_musings_gaua_evacuation.php" target="_blank">Gaua and Soufriere Hills were full-steam-ahead</a> when it came to their respective eruptions.</p> <p><img src="http://cache.boston.com/bonzai-fba/Globe_Photo/2009/12/29/5__1262105894_2554.jpg" width="400" /><br /><em>Mayon erupting in December 2009.</em></p> <p><strong><a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/11/" target="_blank">December</a></strong><br /> As 2009 closed out, all eyes turned to the Philippines and the eruption of Mayon. The volcano produced some <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/12/mayon_update_for_12282009.php" target="_blank">impressive lava flows and avalanches</a>, but as of December 30, the big explosive event that PHIVOLCS is thinking is in the cards has yet to arrive. <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/12/mayon_eruption_update_for_1215.php" target="_blank">Large-scale evacuations</a> have occurred, but keeping people out of the danger zone has been problematic. Piton de la Fournaise on Reunion Island actually <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/11/new_eruption_overnight_at_pito.php" target="_blank">erupted first in November</a>, but the <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/12/time-lapse_video_of_yesterdays.php" target="_blank">December eruption was captured in time-lapse video</a>, showing the growth of the fissure vent eruption on the basaltic shield volcano. Soufriere Hills stayed in the news, causing <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/12/renewed_activity_at_soufriere.php" target="_blank">power problems on Montserrat</a> and ash from the volcano<a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/12/soufriere_hills_causing_flight.php" target="_blank"> cancelled flights as far away as Puerto Rico</a>. And in a bit of a surprise, as 2009 closed out, <a href="http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2009/12/redoubt_returns.php" target="_blank">Redoubt was put back on Yellow Alert status</a> after new signs of potential activity.</p> <p>So there is 2009 in a nutshell ... any predictions for 2010 (volcanically speaking)?</p> </div> <span><a title="View user profile." href="/author/eklemetti" lang=""

Dormant, yes. But extinct? I could be wrong, of course. But when a volcano comes up in a corn field in Mexico, wouldn't you think one could come up just about anywhere? It would be pretty difficult for magma to come up in the Sierras, but it could happen.</p> <p>Anyway, I look for Redoubt to wake up again and I also look for the crater at Kilauea to begin fountaining sometime. It may not because it fills and drains, but you never know. It was really roiling the other day. And then Kamchatka. Somebody there will erupt and it just remains as to who.</p> <p>I notice that there are repeated small quakes at Mammoth Mt. and I suspect they are techtonic. For it to start getting restless is a long shot.</p> <p>And what about the Sisters in Oregon? Has the inflation there deflated?

While anything can happen from Rabaul to Redoubt to Ranier or Mayon to Machin to Mammoth Mountain and the Philipines, Indonesia, Kamchatka, Alaskan Islands, South and Central America all have the ability to unleash large eruptions --- I'll just make a guess/prediction that Africa will have some exciting activity because the continent is slowly rifting apart. </p> <p>I suppose the finding of the extra hot magma in the area may have caught my imagination and just led me to think that the volcanic activity in the area has some legs to it and there may be a long-term upswing in geological activity in the area and so we may continue witnessing the start of what will be a large lava field that will cover a vast area. </p> <p>I will guess that Machin might hold off for a few years in erupting. </p> <p>I'll keep watching Lazufre, but I guess any volcanic activity there will be more than two years away - or maybe even hundreds of years provided it keeps growing. </p> <p>An American science TV show had an episode on Vesuvius. They pointed out that eruptions at Vesuvius have historically trailed big earthquakes by a number of years. Now, the eruption that destroyed Pompeii was also proceeded by a strong quake about 15 or 17 years earlier (can't exactly remember). This was something I viewed on yet another American TV show. Some scientists wonder if last years deadly earthquake in Italy could already have pulled the trigger on the next Vesuvius eruption. (My hunch is that Vesuvius will probably stay dormant for at least the next three years - even if the trigger was pulled.) </p> <p>Ranier will probably make it into the news - even if it doesn't erupt. Some scientist will make some statement about how dangerous it is. It can easily send a lot of material into a nearby town - and the healthy might be able to flee by foot when the automated alarm goes off. </p> <p>So my only guess is activity at the rift valley in Africa.</p> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderLinks" arguments="0=2188656&amp;1=default&amp;2=en&amp;3=" token="kmHoVX3yeuYLifgh4aWxL3HD0n6q5JMc4iGsxMHlc-I"></drupal-render-placeholder> </div> <footer> <em>By <span lang="" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Thomas Donlon (not verified)</span> on 31 Dec 2009 <a href="https://scienceblogs.com/taxonomy/term/27911/feed#comment-2188656">#permalink</a></em> <article typeof="schema:Person" about="/user/0"> <div class="field field--name-user-picture field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <a href="/user/0" hreflang="und"><img src="/files/styles/thumbnail/public/default_images/icon-user.png?itok=yQw_eG_q" width="100" height="100" alt="User Image" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </a> </div> </article> </footer> </article> <article data-comment-user-id="0" id="comment-2188657" class="js-comment comment-wrapper clearfix"> <mark class="hidden" data-comment-timestamp="1262305093"></mark> <div class="well"> <strong></strong> <div class="field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>The Galapagos Islands are the most incredible living museum of evolutionary changes, with a huge variety of endemic species (birds, land and sea animals, plants) and especially active volcanoes.</p> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderLinks" arguments="0=2188657&amp;1=default&amp;2=en&amp;3=" token="_HOwYw3uec95BPdJzRXUUpn_6YbZNlTA2lH7sA2ZHn4"></drupal-render-placeholder> </div> <footer> <em>By <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.galapagos-islands-tourguide.com" lang="" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Zuri (not verified)</a> on 31 Dec 2009 <a href="https://scienceblogs.com/taxonomy/term/27911/feed#comment-2188657">#permalink</a></em> <article typeof="schema:Person" about="/user/0"> <div class="field field--name-user-picture field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <a href="/user/0" hreflang="und"><img src="/files/styles/thumbnail/public/default_images/icon-user.png?itok=yQw_eG_q" width="100" height="100" alt="User Image" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </a> </div> </article> </footer> </article> <article data-comment-user-id="0" id="comment-2188658" class="js-comment comment-wrapper clearfix"> <mark class="hidden" data-comment-timestamp="1262323901"></mark> <div class="well"> <strong></strong> <div class="field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>First of my volcanic related predictions would have to be the threat of lahars in relation to the current eruption of mayon.

Now we're at 66 years, so that's not very much in comparison.<br /> I'd rather be worried about those Italian volcanoes that there is much less talk about, especially abroad - like Campi Flegrei, on the other (western) side of Naples (last eruption was in 1538) and Vulcano on the southernmost of the Aeolian islands (last eruption 1888-1890). Both have shown significant unrest in the past few decades, and my guts tell me at least one of them will erupt before Vesuvius will come back to life.<br /> Mauna Loa? It seemed to be building up to an eruption a few years ago, but presently there seems to be very little going on there, so I don't really expect it to do something very soon.<br /> Somebody named Unzen as a candidate for an eruption in the near future. My guess is it will not erupt for several centuries - the previous eruption (prior to 1990-1995) was in 1792, so that one seems to erupt quite infrequently.<br /> I'd imagine some other Japanese volcano to do something major this year - it's been quite a while since there's been a significant eruption in Japan (10 years, since Miyakejima's caldera collapse and Usu's phreatic eruption/uplift in 2000). Back in the 1970s and 1980s there would be one major eruption in Japan roughly every 3 years.</p> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderLinks" arguments="0=2188659&amp;1=default&amp;2=en&amp;3=" token="4_79eQV7CJZ_01izKvUwkenkFhrWRC77xk4_mUInk74"></drupal-render-placeholder> </div> <footer> <em>By <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.ct.ingv.it" lang="" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Boris Behncke (not verified)</a> on 01 Jan 2010 <a href="https://scienceblogs.com/taxonomy/term/27911/feed#comment-2188659">#permalink</a></em> <article typeof="schema:Person" about="/user/0"> <div class="field field--name-user-picture field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <a href="/user/0" hreflang="und"><img src="/files/styles/thumbnail/public/default_images/icon-user.png?itok=yQw_eG_q" width="100" height="100" alt="User Image" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </a> </div> </article> </footer> </article> <article data-comment-user-id="0" id="comment-2188660" class="js-comment comment-wrapper clearfix"> <mark class="hidden" data-comment-timestamp="1262370038"></mark> <div class="well"> <strong></strong> <div class="field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Let's hope that one in the Canary Islands doesn't slide into the ocean!

Well, it is at the moment even if it is putting out a lot of C02.</p> <p>And this global warming thing...why is it that they forget how much S02 and C02 is being released into the atmosphere from all the volcanoes that are fuming and spewing and erupting? What was it Boris said about Etna releasing 800 tonnes of C02/day? Or was it more? Anyway, that is only ONE volcano! How about Kilauea? </p> <p>Oh well, we will have a good time watching to see where the next eruption will be and I just hope it doesn't cause a lot of havoc. </p> <p>Take care when any of you are on any of these volatile mountains.

There is a lot of rifting in the TVZ (18 mm) a year, currently there are about 5 active earthquake swarms in the TVZ (one of them under the major vent of the last Taupo eruption (Horomatangi reef in the middle of the lake) and one right under Mt Edgecumbe north of Mt. Tarawera. Four of the swarms are on precisely the same fault lines as the most recent eruptions in the zone. An intriguing one is just south of Taupo in a geothermal area also in a graben setting (Roto Aira). And there have been a couple of small earthquakes in the Auckland volcanic field recently (not a seismically active region at all). The AVC intrigues me a lot - a young mafic field erupting through lithic crust in a region without any obvious seismic activity. Most strange. BTW it is also said to erupt about once every six hundred years.</p> <p>.. and to extend my insular thinking a little further north. The rates of subduction up around Tonga are huge and there is major earthquake activity up there too. I think we could easily see more island building or submarine activity from that region too, not to forgot the entire Bismarck Island/New Guinea/Indonesia chain where the same applies.</p> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderLinks" arguments="0=2188661&amp;1=default&amp;2=en&amp;3=" token="PsS4mvu0TS_HG1fWMna2o2SS7yoJxYN_ybV3-__XxEU"></drupal-render-placeholder> </div> <footer> <em>By <span lang="" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">bruce stout (not verified)</span> on 01 Jan 2010 <a href="https://scienceblogs.com/taxonomy/term/27911/feed#comment-2188661">#permalink</a></em> <article typeof="schema:Person" about="/user/0"> <div class="field field--name-user-picture field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <a href="/user/0" hreflang="und"><img src="/files/styles/thumbnail/public/default_images/icon-user.png?itok=yQw_eG_q" width="100" height="100" alt="User Image" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </a> </div> </article> </footer> </article> <article data-comment-user-id="0" id="comment-2188662" class="js-comment comment-wrapper clearfix"> <mark class="hidden" data-comment-timestamp="1262407090"></mark> <div class="well"> <strong></strong> <div class="field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>oh bugger...lol of course I meant the western sea board in my above comment, thanks dianne for bringing that to my attention.

We get a lot of quakes here and there was a swarm just at the foot of Mt. Lassen that had about 90 small quakes. There was a new one on Mammoth Mountain this morning and I check to see how deep they are and they are shallow---about three miles down. I think there are about 20 of them right now. Since there is a fault right there, I think they are techtonic rather than magmatic.</p> <p>Anyway, I think there will be a lot more activity near Tonga, also. They do get a lot of quakes there. That entire area is so active because of the trenches and subductions that there could be a lot of volcanic activity with just the right amount of shaking and how the waves interact with the volcanoes.</p> <p>Anyway, it will be interesting to see what happens and where. I just wish I could go see some of the eruptions---at a safe distance, though. :-)</p> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderLinks" arguments="0=2188665&amp;1=default&amp;2=en&amp;3=" token="NDKZTdDKsjap2SjMkXdIh8980KgYKBnVGe4qH-oY2YQ"></drupal-render-placeholder> </div> <footer> <em>By <span lang="" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Diane (not verified)</span> on 02 Jan 2010 <a href="https://scienceblogs.com/taxonomy/term/27911/feed#comment-2188665">#permalink</a></em> <article typeof="schema:Person" about="/user/0"> <div class="field field--name-user-picture field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <a href="/user/0" hreflang="und"><img src="/files/styles/thumbnail/public/default_images/icon-user.png?itok=yQw_eG_q" width="100" height="100" alt="User Image" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </a> </div> </article> </footer> </article> <article data-comment-user-id="0" id="comment-2188666" class="js-comment comment-wrapper clearfix"> <mark class="hidden" data-comment-timestamp="1262431963"></mark> <div class="well"> <strong></strong> <div class="field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Speaking of quakes, there was a 6.2 in the Mariannas region this morning at 12:45am my time.
