"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

Pic of sulfur dioxide pollution in the Nord - Pas-de-Calais: the main suspect Icelandic volcano - FRANCE

23/09/2014 12



The content of sulfur dioxide in the atmosphere is unusually high in northern France and neighboring countries, the probable cause being the eruption of Iceland Bardabunga according to SFX regional agency.

This unusual concentration, "not yet achieved regulatory thresholds information (300 micrograms / m 3 of air per hour) or alert (500 micrograms), touches the Nord-Pas-de-Calais, Picardy and Champagne-Ardenne, as well as Belgium and Britain, "said a duty officer of the agency for monitoring air quality, Claudie Dryjanski.

"This phenomenon has never been observed for the last 15 years, this regional scale, and appears to be related, according to the origin of the winds and back trajectories of air masses, the eruptions of the Icelandic volcano Bardabunga" which began on August 16, told SFX Nord - Pas-de-Calais in a statement.
A back trajectory, explained Ms. Dryjanski, "is the result of the simulation of the path traveled by a particle of air to replenish its path."
In this case, she has said, "as a phenomenon
of concentration at this level and all monitoring sites at once is very rare."
"Therefore, we felt that this could be related to an industrial accident and we are facing a volcanic origin, although it seems likely to be confirmed scientifically," said Ms. Dryjanski.





Volcanic gases: sulfur cloud of Bárðarbunga reaches Germany
For weeks, the Icelandic volcano spewing lava Bárðarbunga. The case ejected sulfur gas has now reached Germany. Weather stations in Austria report records, but health hazard does not exist.

And as for the scattering off the island, today the gases emerging from the eruption go towards the north of the British Isles, especially Scotland area, where you're reaching


More SO2 from #Holuhraun drifting towards the UK today. Over northern Scotland at around 1 pm.



The most dangerous place in Iceland

Dead birds killed from the air full of sulfur dioxide, were found near the area of the eruption. Vidir Reynisson, head of the National Police Commissioner's Department of Civil Protection, said that if there is a ban approaching eruption, there is a reason: "It 's the place more danger in Iceland, and people need to be careful, just ask them to think before they act."

See Indonesia’s Mount Slamet Spew Lava and Ash

Sept. 18, 2014

Authorities are prepared to evacuate thousands of people if the threat level rises

Indonesia’s Mount Slamet began spewing lava again Thursday morning after a four-day silence, sending ash tumbling down on nearby villages.

Authorities banned activity within four kilometers of the peak and are prepared to evacuate some 24,000 residents from seven villages with roughly four miles of the crater, the Associated Press reports.

The eruption Thursday followed a series of loud bangs and sent molten material as much as 3,000 feet above the peak, according to the Jakarta Post. Forests on the northern side of the volcano were destroyed.

The alert status has stood at level 3 since August—a level 4 alert, the highest, would prompt the evacuation, according to the Post. The volcano, one of about 130 across the country, last erupted in 2009.

16 September 2014 19:00 - from geoscientist on duty

Nearly 100 earthquakes have been detected in the automatic network since midnight. Just over 20 at Bárðarbunga and over 30 in the intrusion under Dyngjujökull and near the eruptive site. Earthquakes at the northern rim of Bárðarbunga caldera today were at 09:13 M3,4 and at 10:36 M4,8 and at 16:13 M3,7. At the southwestern rim there was an earthquake at 14:47 M5,2. No distinctive subsidence was associated with that earthquake. Some of the GPS stations have shown a change in direction since yesterday. Scientists will take a closer look on that change.

The eruption site in Holuhraun at 18:40 today, 16 September 2014.

Mud Spring Closed

September 16, 2014


Police have closed the viewing platform at Gunnuhver mud pool in a geothermal area on Reykjanes peninsula, Southwest Iceland, as a precautionary measure after piping hot clay started shooting up many meters into the sky and a lot of steam started rising from the area.

More activity than usual has been detected at the site in recent days, ruv.is reports.

Ólafur G. Flóvenz, director of Iceland Geosurvey (ÍSOR), said it is impossible to know how long the activity will last but that it is normal and a result of increased seismic activity in the region.

Gunnuhver is the largest mud pot in Iceland.



It is expected that rift episode that is now taking place north of Bárðarbunga is going to last for months. So it is important to be patience when waiting for nature to do its thing.
Bárðarbunga volcano caldera is currently dropping around 50cm/day. That might change without warning.

Update at 21:42 UTC

Largest earthquake so far is a magnitude 5,2 that took place at 14:47 UTC. More earthquakes have been taking place in the last hour, but there magnitude has not been confirmed yet.

Russian Volcano Spews Ash Over 40 Kilometers (Sept 16)

The Karymsky volcano on the far-eastern Kamchatka Peninsula has emitted an ash plume reaching 3,000 meters high, and the cloud has drifted over 40 kilometers from the volcano, Russia's Emergency Situations Ministry said Tuesday.

The volcano has been assigned a "yellow" aviation code for "signs of elevated unrest," the ministry said in a statement.

Fortunately the ash plume has passed over uninhabited areas and away from major aviation routes, the ministry said, adding that travel agencies should avoid scheduling tours close to volcanoes.

10,000 Families Evacuated Amid Imminent Eruption at Mount Mayon (Sept 15)

Thousands of people living near an active volcano in the central Philippines are being evacuated after government scientists warned of an impending eruption.

Authorities said 10,000 families living close to the volcano will be evacuated.

They have ordered no human activity within the six-kilometre danger zone around Mayon.

Mount Mayon in Albay province was placed on alert level three after showing signs of "relatively high unrest" based on increased volcanic activity including a growing lava dome, crater glow, rock fall events, volcanic earthquakes and gas emissions.

Phivolcs recorded 39 rock fall events and 32 low frequency volcanic earthquakes indicating that magma is about to rise from its crater.

Indonesia’s Mount Lokon Volcano Erupts 3 Times (Sept 13)

Mount Lokon volcano on Indonesia’s Sulawesi island erupted three times on Saturday, spewing ash 600 metres into the air, and prompting local authorities to set up an exclusion zone around the volcano.

“The eruption must be monitored closely because… the ash fell on the eastern part of the mountain, Mandolang, Tombariri and East Tombariri district in Minahasa, and Manado has also been affected,” local resident Feri Rismawan said on Saturday.

In Malalayang, a subdistrict of the provincial capital of Manado, people wore facemasks to protect themselves from the respiratory effects of the ash.

Minahasa district head, Jantje Sajow, said the government had advised people not to venture outside without a mask. The local disaster management agency followed this up by distributing masks free of charge, while the local government set up a 2.5-kilometer radius around the crater which local people were not allowed to cross.

Sulphur From Bardarbunga's Ongoing Eruption Reaches Finland (Sept 12)

Iceland's Bardarbunga volcano has been erupting since August 31, sending sulphur as far away as Finland.

Molten lava is flowing from the Holohraun lava field in the Icelandic highlands, north of the Vatnajökull glacier. Changing weather patterns are carrying sulphur dioxide emitted from the lava field as far as Norway and Finland, prompting Iceland's health authorities to advise children and those with respiratory problems to stay indoors.

The toxic gases are limiting access to the eruption site, as scientists continue to monitor the area in preparation for more seismic activity. The News of Iceland reported that winds are carrying high quantities of the potentially life-threatening gas to northern parts of the East fjords.

Residents living in the area have reported a stench in the air, as the gas has a pungent, rotten smell.

While the sulphur isn't posing a health risk to the people of Norway, there have been complaints of sore throats, watery eyes and headaches in Iceland.

This week it was reported that higher levels of sulphur dioxide than normal had been detected in Irish airspace, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

Scientists working around Bardarbunga, which is the largest volcanic system in Iceland, say the volcano could be about to erupt once again, as the caldera has sunk by around 65ft since last week.

Geophysicist Magnús Tumi Guðmundsson told Iceland Review that another eruption in the Bardarbunga volcano, which lies underneath Vatnajökull glacier, could potentially be massive, sending large quantities of ash into the air.

He added that if this was the case, the glacial melt water could cause widespread flooding, which Iceland's Civil Protection Department is preparing for.

Lava has been flowing since the 31 August creating a fissure estimated to be around 1.5km long. The molten rock is around six to eight metres thick and flowing at a rate of around 1,000 cubic metres per second.

Thousands of earthquakes have hit the region since the seismic activity started and authorities have warned against intrigued visitors trespassing in the area.

Víðir Reynis­son, of the De­part­ment of Civil Pro­tec­tion, in an interview with Icelandic website Mbl.is said that the ground was constantly changing with the emergence of new rifts.

Bardarbunga is Iceland's fourth most-active volcano, having last erupted in 1794.

Indonesia's Slamet Volcano Erupts 165 Times (Sept 11)

Mount Slamet volcano in Central Java province erupted 165 times on September 11, spewing lava 5,000 feet into the air and prompting more than 20,000 villagers living on the slope of the volcano to prepare for evacuation.

Powerful bursts of hot ash and gravel occurred at 12:44 p.m. and 13:35 p.m. Jakarta time, ejecting lava all over the summit cone of the volcano..

BNPB, Indonesian's Civil Protection began preparing for a possible evacuation. According to them, 23,699 people are located within a radius of 5 to 6 km from the summit, and the area up to 4 km radius around the volcano has been declared an exclusion zone.

56,000 dust masks have been distributed to the local population.

Trucks and vans are prepared to be on standby when evacuation order is given in order to transport people away from the danger zone and shelters are being set up.

Mount Slamet erupted again on Friday, spewing a column of ash by up to one km high.

Authorities warned residents to remain outside a four-kilometer radius of the volcano.
