Japan: A new island appears in the Ogasawara Islands - November 2013

Active volcanoes (Sep 28, 2012)


Currently active volcanoes (Aug 23, 2015)


"Of course all volcanoes will explode, as this is going to be a very severe pole shift. What about the months and years preceding the pole shift? It is no secret that Mammoth Lake and the caldera of Yellowstone are warming up, and the populace has been prepared for these occurrences by the movie Volcano where there, in the middle of LA, lava is bubbling up. In fact, there is a fault line running from the approximate San Diego/LA area, up into the Sierras, and this is liable to rupture rather violently during one of the quakes that precedes the pole shift by some months. Volcanic eruptions from that area in the Sierras can be expected. Will Mount St. Helen erupt? All volcanoes that have been active within the memory of man will begin spewing and burping and oozing, and many that were not expected to become active will reactive. "   ZetaTalk - Feb 15, 2000

APRIL 16 - Russian Shiveluch Volcano Spews Ash to 9,500 Meters

Russia's northernmost active volcano is churning out ash to a height of 9,500 meters (over 31,000 feet) in the country's Far East, local scientists reported on Tuesday.

The 3,283-meter (10,771-foot) Shiveluch volcano increased activity in May 2009 and has been periodically spewing ash from three to ten kilometers.

“A powerful eruption of ashes took place 05.59 a.m. local time [17:59 GMT on Monday], a source at the Far Eastern Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said.

The official said the column of ashes could be clearly seen from a distance of 40 kilometers spreading to the east.

“It is the most powerful eruption this year,” the expert said.

According to scientists, the volcanic activity over the past two-three years has significantly altered the contour of the volcano with the crater increasing in size by 50% and the slopes becoming far steeper than before.

Although the current eruption poses no immediate threat to nearby settlements, the ensuing ash fallouts could be hazardous to health and the environment.

The clouds of volcanic ash could also pose threat to air traffic because the tiny particles cause problems with aircraft engine turbines.

So far, local authorities issued no warnings to air traffic in the area.

There are more than 150 volcanoes on Kamchatka, 29 of them active.

During an overflight on 13 April, an explosion from Sangay volcano was observed at 08:25 local time. It generated an ash and steam column of 2 km above the summit crater. A new vent was detected, both on visible and thermal images, located next to the active dome on the SE flank (Ñuñurqu). The activity in this area has intensified since October, when the last aerial survey had taken place. Extensive lava flows are descending on the SE flank of the dome and reaching the base of the cone. Strong fumarolic activity was seen on the SE flank of the dome and on the S flank of the central crater.     Source

2.9 quake relocated to Fogo Caldera/Cabo Verde :


Cape Verde Volcano Observatory (OVCV)
Earthquake of Fogo (Cape Verde) relocated inside Chã das Caldeiras

The magnitude of the earthquake was of 2.9 on the Richter scale and focus to 2.9 kilometers deep

The permanent instrumental network Cape Verde Volcano Observatory (OVCV) for monitoring volcanic island of Fogo recorded'' '52 at 02:43 am (Cape Verde Time) of 12 April 2012 an earthquake whose epicenter was located on the island of Fogo, in particular within Chã das Caldeiras once it has re-evaluated the seismic event. The analysis of seismic records confirm that the magnitude of the earthquake was of 2.9 on the Richter scale, but localized the source of the seismic event at a depth much less than that provided by the preliminary analysis, to 2.9 kilometers. This latter observation would explain that the earthquake was felt in neighboring Cha das Caldeiras.

The earthquake was recorded by the 6 seismic stations of the permanent instrumental network of Cape Verde Volcano Observatory (OVCV), a new institution that was created as a joint commitment of the Laboratório de Engenharia Civil of Cape Verde (LEC), the University of Cape Green (Uni-CV) and the National Serviço Civil Protecção (SNPC) of Cape Verde to improve and optimize the work aimed at reducing the volcanic risk in Cape Verde and the management of the many benefits (geotourism, geothermal, etc.). it takes to live in a volcanically active area such as Cape Verde.

The Volcano Observatory seismic network of Cape Verde (OVCV) has recently been installed by scientists and technicians of the Institute of Technology and Renewable Energies (ITER), the Andalusian Institute of Geophysics (IAG), University of Granada, the Laboratório de Engenharia Civil Cape Verde (LEC) of the Universidade de Cabo Verde (Uni-CV) and the National Serviço Civil Protecção (SNPC) of Cape Verde. This scientific and technical cooperation Hispanic Cape Verde is part of the project "MAKAVOL - Capacity building R & D to contribute to reducing volcanic risk in Macaronesia (MAC/3/C161)" co-financed by the transnational cooperation program of the European Union Madeira-Canary-Azores (MAC 2007-2013), project monitoring EPHESTOS volcanic field study of volcanoes and seismic waves in the framework of a scientific cooperation agreement between the Cabildo Insular de Tenerife and the University of Cape Verde (Uni-CV) for 2011-2014 which aims to include the acquisition of instrumentation for training and research in the field of volcanism that will go to Cape Verde Volcano Observatory (OVCV ) and the development of the necessary tools for training in handling equipment and to implement training programs and exchange in the field of risk prevention volcano.

Turrialba Volcano Erupts, Costa Rica (April 12)

Thursday morning the Turrialbla volcano unleashed a new series of eruptions, with experts converging on the colossus to take a close look at the smoke emanations coming from its centre.

According to the Red Sismológica Nacional (RSN) and the Observatorio Vulcanologio y Sismologico de Costa Rica (OVISCORI) the activity does not present any danger, but will continue to monitor the volcano much closer.

The alert followed reports by area residents of hearing a large rumble and then the sighting of dark coloured smoke, produced by gas fumes from the volcano.

Last January the volcano became a concern for residents and experts following the emanation of white gas fumes.

Several RSN experts are on their way to the top of the volcano and the OVISCORI is keeping the national park closed and under a green alert.

Mount Etna Erupts AGAIN! (April 13) -

The eruption spewed blood-red molten lava and grey and white ash into the air - is the 24th in a series that started in January 2011.

The Sicilian volcano has erupted three times in the past month, with regular 12 day pauses.

The main eruption is located at the south-eastern crater, not far from Zafferana Etnea village, but so far Italian authorities have not issued any warning of danger to houses and people.

The south-eastern crater, born in 1971, has been the most active in recent years.

In the recent past, lava flows have mainly damaged properties, but due to its slow speed the lava has not killed anyone.

Heavy ash emissions sometimes force the closure of nearby Catania International Airport.

For now, the airport remains open.

Mount Etna, has erupted for the fifth time this year.

Hot lava and ash spewed from the top into a valley nearby on the Italian island of Sicily.

The eruption happened on Sunday morning at 4am local time for more than an hour and a half.

Although the area around the volcano was covered by ash, it didn't affect planes traveling near it.

Tungurahua Volcano in Ecuador Produces 4-5 km Eruption -
Apr 11, 2012

A moderately large explosion occurred at Tungurahua volcano today at 08:56 (local time). The eruption generated an ash column of 4-5 km height above the crater. The ash at lower altitudes drifted north-east, east and south-east the lower column, and ash from the upper parts of the eruption column to the north-west.

The explosion ejected incandescent blocks to distances up to 500 to 600 meters below the crater rim on the northeast side. Seismically the explosion was followed by a signal of high-energy tremor that lasted about 40 minutes.
The explosion was heard in villages near the volcano and at the volcano Tungurahua Observatory (OVT), located 14 km north-west of the volcano.

From approximately 09:30 (local time) the energy and height of the eruption decreased significantly, and the height of the eruption column dropped to less than 1 km.
