[quote:Anonymous Coward 995876:MV8xNjE3MzkwXzI2OTEzMTg4XzM0OEFGRjc4] [quote:IwantToBelieve76:MV8xNjE3MzkwXzI2OTExMDIzX0YyN0M2Q0M2] update for El Hierro unrest. 1100+ quakes last week, deformation keeping the pace,no significant changes in CO2 http://www.facebook.com/pages/INSTITUTO-VOLCANOL%C3%93GICO-DE-CANARIAS/134042953295772#!/pages/INSTITUTO-VOLCANOL%C3%93GICO-DE-CANARIAS/134042953295772 [/quote] Thanks for the update. You know what I did...I pulled up http://hisz.rsoe.hu/alertmap/index2.php and I looked at the islands. If you zoom in on Hierro you will see what look like sink holes or elevation changes showing destabilization and deformation near the crest lines. The place is full of cuts and breaks and cliffs. I don't know how old or new those deformations are BUT they're there. If someone has google earth they may be able to get a newer view of the place. [/quote]
Over 40 quakes were reported on Hierro alone yesterday, many with very shallow depths. 3.8 hit just North of Tenerife as well, bringing curiosity to the region...what's next?

So...they are totally dismayed as to how these rocks could be so full of radiation? Humm...let's try this explanation!
Thread: OLD NUCLEAR WASTE DUMP SITE OFF EL HIERRO! OMG!
The United States used to use the coastal waters of El Hierro as a nuclear dumping ground. The idea that our nuclear waste has been drawn into the subversion plates, burnt down into the magma and then redistributed through El Hierro's underwater eruption is quite a possible scenario!
These eruptions are commonly phreatomagmatic eruptions, representing violent explosions caused by rising basaltic or andesitic magma coming into contact with abundant, shallow groundwater or surface water.
