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

Costa Rica's Turrialba Volcano Spews Ash for 5th Consecutive Day (Sep 30) 

Turrialba Volcano continued spewing ash and gases on Thursday in one of its longest eruptive events this year.

The ash spewing at Turrialba, located some 50 kilometers (30 miles) northeast of the capital San José in Cartago province, began shortly after noon on Monday. Ash and vapor formed a column that varies in height from 500 meters to 2,000 meters (1,640 feet to 6,560 feet) above the crater, RSN reported.

Eruptions at Turrialba last week caused the Juan Santamaría International Airport in Alajuela, outside of San José, to close for nearly 24 hours. The airport has remained open this week although some flights were delayed Thursday morning.

The National Meteorological Institute reported that wind is currently carrying ash mainly towards the northern areas of the Central Valley.

On Thursday, RSN received reports on its social media profiles of persistent ashfall in communities in the northern parts of Cartago, San José, Heredia and Alajuela provinces.

The National University’s Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica (OVSICORI) also noted that some people are reporting ashfall in various areas of the Caribbean province of Limón, mostly in Guápiles.

In addition to ashfall, people said they smelled sulfur in the air north and east of the capital, in Coronado, Moravia, Tibás, Zapote, Curridabat and Montes de Oca, and also in Cartago and Heredia provinces.

Multiple Eruptions at Guatemala's Fuego Volcano (Sep 27)

A series of eruptions at Guatemala's Fuego volcano spewed lava and sent ash raining down near the capital.

The volcano is maintaining "moderate to heavy explosions," according to the National Institute of Seismology, Volcanology, Meteorology and Hydrology.

The eruptions have sent an ash column up into the sky, reaching about 5,000 meters (16,400 feet) above sea level. The column is moving more than 20 kilometers (12 miles) westwards and southwest.

The rumbling 3,763-meter-high volcano is located 45 kilometers southwest of the capital Guatemala City. The incandescent lava at the top of the crater is feeding two rivers of lava.

The falling ash is affecting a number of communities, especially the town of Yepocapa, near the volcano.

The institute recommended that aviation authorities take precautions with air-traffic control.

Indonesian Volcano Erupts, Flight Cancellations Strand Hundreds (Sep 27)

Volcanic activity has once again stopped travellers in their tracks with Jetstar, Virgin and Tigerair cancelling a string of flights between Australia and Bali during the busy school holiday period.

Mount Barujari, a sub-volcano of Mount Rinjani in Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara (NTB), erupted at around 2:45 p.m. local time on Tuesday, spewing volcanic ash around 2,000 meters into the sky.

Hundreds of passengers of the three air carriers, which fly between Bali and the Australian cities of Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Sydney, were stranded at the Denpassar Airport.

Mt Barujari’s volcanic ash drifted to southwestern areas, including North Lombok and Mataram.

Costa Rica's Turrialba Volcano Eruptions Continue (Sep 22)

Over the past few days, Turrialba has had over 20 significant, ash-rich explosions that have ended up closing airports across the country.

The latest eruption on Sep 22 remained constant for nearly 4 hours, spewing ash, gas and vapor almost 3,000 meters (some 9,800 feet) above the crater.

The National University’s Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica (OVSICORI) reported that wind conditions prompted ash to reach northern areas of Heredia and Alajuela provinces. 

Ash also reached the Braulio Carrillo National Park, Guápiles and other communities in the Caribbean province of Limón.

Turrialba Volcano Closes Costa Rica Airports (Sep 19)

Two of Costa Rica's airports were closed after Turrialba volcano erupted twice on Monday, sending incandescent rocks and thick ash into the sky.

The first eruption occurred at 2:53 a.m. and lasted about 15 minutes. The explosion launched ashes, gases and incandescent rocks into the air to about 1,000 meters (3,280 feet) above the volcano’s crater, UNA’s Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica (OVSICORI) reported.

The second  explosion occurred at 11:32 a.m. and spewed material about 13,000 feet into the air, the agency said.

OVSICORI volcanologist María Martínez said that after the second explosion, reports were received of ash falling in communities north and west of San José, including Coronado, Moravia, Tibás, Guadalupe, Escazú and as far away as Alajuela province.

Operations at the Juan Santamaria International Airport, the country’s main air terminal, and the Tobias Bolanos airport, were suspended until conditions improve, according to the chief of the Civil Aviation Directorate Ennio Cubillo.

Authorities also considered whether to limit the general aviation activities at the Daniel Oduber International Airport located in the northwest of the Central American nation.

Soon to Blow? Iceland’s Katla Volcano Rattled By Unusually Strong Earthquakes



Katla, one of Iceland's largest volcanoes, was rocked by two abnormally strong earthquakes Monday morning, raising concerns that the volcano may soon erupt.

The southern-Iceland volcano has not erupted since 1918, and scientists believe that a violent release is long overdu

In the early hours on Monday the area was hit by magnitude 4.5 and 4.6 quakes, similar to movements it experienced in 2011.

The nearby Eyjafjallajokull volcano erupted in 2010, creating so much dense ash that it shut down a large area of airspace for nearly a week.
Interestingly, the volcano is covered by a large icecap, which would likely delay the eruption for around 60 to 90 minutes, according to Roberts. The delay could give people time to evacuate and assist air traffic control in redirecting aircraft. The ice cap itself presents hazards, though. “The other hazard might be a jökulhlaup, or glacial outburst flood. Melting from the summer within the Myrdalsjökull icecap and that meltwater can accumulate until it spills over as a flood of water, ice, and debris. These have occurred often and do not need to be associated with any volcanic activity,” Wired explained.


Earthquakes, earthquake swarm at Campi Flegrei: Pozzuoli shock, felt by the population - ITALY

August 30, 2016

The seismic swarm was caused by a volcanic phenomenon, namely the lifting of the ground (bradisismo) in place at Campi Flegrei



A very superficial seismic swarm was detected yesterday afternoon at Campi Flegrei: starting at 16:22 (local time) on August 29, 2016, explains the Vesuvius Observatory, "it was recorded a swarm of 40 events in the area of Campi Flegrei. The major energy event, recorded at 17:45, had a magnitude of 1.7. The area affected by the swarm is to Pisciarelli-Solfatara. The depth of the events is approximately 1 km below the sea level. The last event (instrumental) of the swarm was recorded at 18:27 ".

The population, in the afternoon, in the upper area of ​​Pozzuoli near the Solfatara volcano, warned both the roar is the vibration of the ground.

There are no connections to the earthquake in central Italy, as, announces the Vesuvius Observatory, the seismic swarm was caused by a volcanic phenomenon, namely the lifting of the ground (bradisismo) in place at Campi Flegrei.

At the moment is in place a phase of lifting of a few millimeters per year. The most relevant event was recorded last October with a swarm of over center shook with maximum magnitude of 2.3, the occasion felt directly by the people

Mt. Sinabung spewed ash 86 times Thursday.
Island focus: Residents told to stay away from Sinabung
The local disaster mitigation agency has warned people living in the vicinity of Mount Sinabung to find safe places because of the danger of hot ash from recent volcanic activities.
On Thursday, Mt. Sinabung spewed ash, leaving hundreds of houses in the districts of Simpang Empat, Berastagi and Dolatrayat covered in volcanic debris.
The three districts are located far to the east of the volcano.
Mt. Sinabung also spewed hot ash the day before.
Igan Sutawidjaja, a researcher with the Volcanology and Geologic Disaster Mitigation Center (PVMBG), said the volcano spewed hot ash 86 times on Thursday.
He predicted the volcano would spew more hot ash in the new few days, most probably to locations east of it.
“The possible direction of the hot ash can be seen from the position of the crater,” he said on Thursday.
Therefore, it is dangerous for people to undertake activities in the vicinity during a volcanic eruption, he added.
Meanwhile, Karo Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPD) official Natanael Perangin-angin said his office strengthened coordination with other institutions in anticipation of potential large-scale eruptions in the coming days.
“We have had coordination meetings with villages surrounding Mt. Sinabung to keep a distance from the ‘red zone’,” Natanael said.
He added the areas included in the danger zone are those within a 3-kilometer radius from the peak of the mountain, 7 km to the south-southeast, 6 km to the southeast-east and 4 km to the northeast.

Powerful Explosion at Guatemala's Santa Maria (Santiaguito) Volcano (Aug 16)

A particularly strong explosion occurred this morning sending a massive mushroom-shaped ash plume that reached 20,000 ft. The  immediate surroundings were showered by volcanic blocks and bombs, and collapsing material from the eruption produced avalanches that engulfed the cone on several sides (pyroclastic flows).

The ash plume drifted to the WNW and caused significant ash falls in areas as far as the border with Mexico (e.g. Cacahotàn, 75 km distance). Light ash fall was even recorded in greater distances, e.g. the Mexican town of ​​Soconusco in 145 km distance.

The eruption came bare 48 hours after the previous one on Sunday. It can well be that the volcano is currently entering a phase of particularly increased activity.
