"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



I will try to update this post daily with new volcano news starting from August 2011.

Explosions Generate Lava Flows at Ecuador's Tungurahua Volcano (Aug 30)

A series of pyroclastic flows occurred yesterday evening.

The eruptions took place between 18:23 and 19:00 local time, and are the first occurrences of pyroclastic flows since the start of the new eruptive phase that started on 27 July.

Fortunately, the flows were small and eruptive activity remains only moderate, as frequent but typically smaller explosions occur and release pressure. It is thought that the volcano is currently in a state of having an open conduit, allowing magma to rise easily to the crater before building up large pressure.

IGPEN mentioned that significant deformation of the upper part of the volcano had been detected recently, indicating that more magma is on its way towards the crater. Hence, similar eruptions are expected to continue for a while.

Strong and Frequent explosions at Southern Japan's Sakurajima Volcano (Aug 31)

The activity has picked up significantly at the volcano.

During the past 30 hours, at least 10 vulcanian-type explosions were recorded. Some of them produced ash plumes rising to 13,000 ft (4 km) altitude, i.e. approx. 3 km above the volcano's Showa crater.

Eruption & Seismic Crisis at Bardarbunga Volcano, Iceland (Aug 31)

A new eruption in Iceland's Bardarbunga volcano system system spewed lava more than 50 metres in the air on Sunday, initially prompting authorities to raise their warning of the risk of ash to aviation from orange to red, which is the highest level on a five-colour scale and indicates an eruption is imminent or underway, with a risk of spewing ash.

According to local news, the lava flows have already reached more than 3 km distance from the fissure vent. The eruption is much stronger than the previous one on Friday, with up to 10 times the lava output.

Since the start of the eruption this morning, earthquake activity has been lower (which is normal as pressure is lowered).

The eruption which started in Holuhraun lava field this morning is 50 times larger than the eruption which occurred in the same area on Friday morning, according to professor of geophysics Magnús Tumi Guðmundsson.

In addition, the flow of lava is close to 1,000 cubic meters per second, which is three to four times the flow during the 2010 Eyjafjallajökull eruption. 

Lava analysis from the Friday eruption at the University of Iceland showed that the erupted basalt magma is relatively rich in Aluminum (>7 wt %) which suggests that it likely originates from a deeper source, directly connected to the upper mantle, rather than from an existing shallow magma reservoir under Bardarbunga (or Askja) volcano.

In the meanwhile, it is now believed that the 23 Aug event in fact was another (probably the first) eruptive episode, but went unnoticed at the surface because it failed to break through the glacier.

Iceland's largest volcanic system, which cuts a 190 km long and up to 25 km wide swathe across the North Atlantic island, has been hit by thousands of earthquakes over the last two weeks and scientists have been on high alert.

New Eruptions at Southern Japan's Suwanosejima Volcano (Aug 31)

The volcano entered a more active phase on Sunday. Several (strombolian-type) explosions and phases of constant ash venting have occurred since yesterday, producing ash plumes of 1-2 km height.

Poás Volcano in Costa Rica Spews Gas and Water During 3 Eruptions (Aug 27)

Costa Rica’s Poás Volcano let loose on Wednesday, spewing gas and water more than 300 feet into the air, the Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica (OVSICORI) reported. Seismologists registered three consecutive phreatic eruptions starting at 2:45 p.m. They lasted 3 minutes.

According to an OVSICORI press release, phreatic eruptions, while common, cannot be predicted with precision, and they can pose a danger to volcanologists who work close to the crater lake. Debris is rarely a concern, but living things close to the crater lake can be suffocated by the  gas-saturated cloud emitted from the volcano after an eruption.

Volcanologists say they have occurred sporadically since 2006 and could continue for several more years.

Poás is located a short drive from the Juan Santamaría International Airport in Alajuela.

Iceland volcano: Red alert for aviation industry after eruption

Airlines have been placed of red alert once again after a volcanic eruption in Iceland this morning.

The small eruption in the Holuhraun area, just north of the Bardarbunga volcano, comes after almost two weeks of earthquakes in the region, and an earlier sub-glacial eruption.

The estimated 1km fissure eruption prompted the Icelandic Met Office to raise the aviation warning code to its highest level, but no volcanic ash has been detected.

First pictures of the new eruptive fissure, taken from a helicopter of the Icelandic Coast Guard were released. They show a row of spatter cones and small lava flows that were erupted from the fissure, about 900 m long and located 5 km from the northern edge of the Dyngjuköll glacier.

Recent volcanic activity in Iceland has raised worries of an eruption causing chaos for air travel, as it did in 2010 when an ash cloud from the Eyjafjallajokull volcano closed much of Europe’s airspace for six days.

This morning's eruption just after 0000 GMT took place in a lava field not covered by ice.

The risk of an ash cloud is highest in case of a sub-glacial eruption.

Iceland’s National Crisis Coordination Centre said: "The Icelandic Met Office has raised the aviation colorcode over the eruption site to red and the Icelandic Air Traffic Control has closed down the airspace from the earth up to 18000 feet."

"No volcanic ash has been detected with the radar system at the moment....Seismic eruption tremor is low indicating effusive eruption without significant explosive activity."

The red warning code indicates that an eruption is imminent or underway, with a risk of ash.

PNG volcano Tavurvur eruption may disrupt Australian flights

AUGUST 29, 2014 6:46AM

A MAJOR volcanic eruption in Papua New Guinea this morning could disrupt flights to and from Australia.

The Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre in Darwin is monitoring the ash cloud from Tavurcur on PNG’s East Britain Island, which is slowly drifting southwest.

Senior meteorologist Ian Shepherd said they were watching the cloud closely and providing advice to airlines.

“The volcanic eruption reached the top of the atmosphere at 50,000 feet which is the same height as which planes travel,” said Mr Shepherd.

“It’s too early to say at this point if the ash cloud will reach Australia but it was a significant eruption.”

He said the cloud was identifiable on satellite imagery but it was not possible to gauge its size.

Cyndee Feals, also from the Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre in Darwin, said the ash cloud was drifting southeast and had the potential to disrupt air travel.

“The ash was initially blowing to the southwest but has now turned to the southeast and we expect it to clip the edge of Australian airspace later today, but we don’t expect ash over Australia,” she said.

Planes may be forced to take alternate routes with the ash forecast to move towards the Solomon Islands and then Vanuatu, she added.

Ash clouds have played havoc with Australian aircraft in the past with the eruption of a Chilean volcano in 2011 grounding hundreds of flights.

Tavurvur, on the tip of New Britain island in the country’s east, erupted sending lava into the air and causing panic among locals. It has previously erupted in 1937, 1994, 2006 and again last year.

Ecuador's Tungurahua Volcano Erupts 3 Times in 3 Weeks (Aug 19)

Experts are monitoring the Tungurahua volcano in Ecuador after the latest eruption.

Ash was blown 28,000 feet (five miles) into the air and was reported to be drifting west.

The eruption was the latest in a series of moderate to strong explosions at the volcano after a period of relative calm.

The first was on July 29, then on August 4 and August 19.

Some of the blasts have sent shock waves which have caused the windows and roofs of homes in nearby areas to vibrate.

Tungurahua, which means 'Throat of Fire' in the local Quechua language, is located in the Andes 87 miles (140km) south of the capital Quito.

Earthquakes caused cracks in the glacier near Bardarbunga.


27th August 2014 20:50 - info from a surveillance flight

Scientists from IES and IMO on a flight to Vatnajökull tonight discovered a row of 10-15 m deep cauldrons south of the Bárðarbunga caldera. They form a 6-4 km long line. The cauldrons have been formed as a result of melting, possibly a sub-glacial eruption, uncertain when. Heightened tremor level/volcanic tremor has not been observed on IMO's seismometers at the moment. The new data are being examined.


New fractures in Holuhraun next to Dyngjujökull caused by recent earthquakes

“Hard to Explain what Happened if not Caused by an Eruption”

August 27, 2014 23:14

Rifts, about four to six kilometers long, have formed in Vatnajökull outlet glacier Dyngjujökull northeast of Bárðarbunga, as reported by RÚV, visir.is and the Icelandic Met Office. Small calderas have formed in the glacier and it cannot be ruled out that an eruption has started.

According to the Civil Protection Department, there is no indication of a flood yet, but the department's director Víðir Reynisson told RÚV television just now (at 10.20 pm) that it would be hard to explain what has occurred if not caused by an eruption.

Everyone concerned is very cautious in light of the false alarm on Saturday, but the new calderas are thought to have been formed by heat from below.

We will try to update the news as soon as reports arrive from the Icelandic Met Office and others.
