"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

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.

Peru's Ubinas Volcano Erupts Again (Sept 11)

A strong explosion occurred this morning at the Ubinas volcano, generating alarm among residents of surrounding areas of the massif located in the Moquegua region.

According to monitoring conducted by the Volcano Observatory Mining Geological and Metallurgical Institute (Ingemmet) in Arequipa, the explosion occurred at 07:05 hours local time and reached a height of 3.5 kilometers.

The explosion generated ash dispersed in a southerly direction and thus fallout is anticipated in the villages of Querapi, Sacohaya, Tonohaya, Anascapa, Ubinas and San Miguel in the Moquegua region.

The Ingemmet will evaluate the impact of ash falls and implement mitigation actions (provide masks and lenses, and protect deposits from water and food to prevent contamination).

Ubinas last erupted with a sudden strong explosion on August 22.

Sinking Iceland volcano crater raises flood worries


(Reuters) - Iceland's Bardarbunga volcano registered one of its most powerful earth tremors yet on Wednesday while the sinking of its caldera raised concerns of an eruption and flooding, authorities said.

The caldera, the cauldron-like crater at the top of a volcano, had sunk by up to around 20 metres since last week as magma channeled through underground passages moves away from the volcano

A cloud of abrasive ash from the Eyjafjallajokull volcano, in a different region of Iceland, closed much of Europe's air space for six days in 2010, stranding tens of thousands of passengers, after an eruption under the ice cap.

"We take this increased subsidence in the caldera of Bardarbunga volcano very seriously, due to a possible large eruption and glacial flood," said Vidir Reynisson, Department Manager at Iceland's Civil Protection Department.

The ash warning level for aviation remained at orange, the second-highest level on a five-colour scale, after several brief hikes to the top red in recent weeks.

Lava from cracks around Bardarbunga has so far entered the surface on ice-free land, whereas an eruption under an ice cap may be explosive and produce an ash cloud that could disrupt aviation, as well as flooding due to melting of the ice.

Blue Haze from Eruption in East Iceland

September 08, 2014 10:42


The sun seen through the haze

A bluish haze caused by sulfur dioxide emitted in the Holuhraun eruption could widely be detected in East Iceland over the weekend. The haze was still there this morning, as the weather is still and dry. The pollution is not considered a health hazard.

“It’s like a bluish haze that hangs over everything, especially apparent when you drive from Hérað [by Egilsstaðir] and southwards along the fjords. The mountains disappear into the haze and if the mountains are at varied distance you can see how the haze increases,” Helga Hreinsdóttir, managing director of the East Iceland Public Health Authority, told ruv.is.

Pollution detectors in Reyðarfjörður, which were placed there because of the nearby aluminum smelter, showed on Saturday that pollution levels have never been as high in the town since they were first recorded before 1970.

One of the four pollution detectors in Reyðarfjörður will be moved to Egilsstaðir to monitor the air quality there.

Helga stated it is unlikely that people will be affected by the pollution, except particularly sensitive asthma patients, who might sense discomfort in the respiratory system.

Seismic activity by Bárðarbunga has decreased since midnight and the Holuhraun eruption remains stable.
