[quote:Anonymous Coward 15368686:MV8xOTkxNzI2XzMzNDU1MTI1X0E4M0U2MEJF] A recap of the last thread and some vital information about the island of Hierro in the archipelago of the Canary Islands. -El Hierro poses just as much threat as any of the other islands- http://www.myweathertech.com/2011/08/01/worries-of-mega-tsunami-720-earthquakes-on-el-hierro-in-one-week/ http://ascendingstarseed.wordpress.com/2011/07/24/alert-400-tremors-in-four-days-in-the-canary-islands-near-the-el-hierro-volcano-mega-tsunami-prediction-resurfaces/ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8sTbfPn_jns ____________________________________________________________ "Update 07/08 – 10:21 UTC An article in Diario El Hierro reports about some findings of the University of La Laguna. [b]The professor indicates that eruption material from El Hierro is among the strongest eruption radioactive material known so far.[/b] Click here to read this (Spanish) article." http://earthquake-report.com/2011/09/25/el-hierro-canary-islands-spain-volcanic-risk-alert-increased-to-yellow/ "[u][b]The stones of the eruption El Hierro, the most radioactive in the world[/b][/u]" "[b][u]The stones that surfaced as a result of volcanic earthquake crisis last year affected the island of El Hierro are the most radioactive in the world[/u][/b], told Efe Antonio Darwich physicist, professor, Department of Soil Science and Geology University of La Laguna." Original page in spanish http://www.diariodeavisos.com/2012/08/04/actualidad/las-piedras-de-la-erupcion-herrena-de-las-mas-radiactivas-del-mundo/ So...they are totally dismayed as to how these rocks could be so full of radiation? Humm...let's try this explanation! http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message1701573/pg1 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! ''[color=red][u][i][b] 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.[/b][/i][/u][/color]" ____________________________________________________________ Total quakes to date (Takes a while to load) http://www.ign.es/ign/resources/volcanologia/txt/boletin_HIERRO.txt Deformation charts http://www.ign.es/ign/resources/volcanologia/html/deformacion.html ____________________________________________________________ The starting point to all currently available pages on Hierro's seismic and volcanic activity http://www.ign.es/ign/resources/volcanologia/HIERRO.html A site that you can monitor and view all boat traffic. This site was very helpful as we watched the observation boats that were collecting data on the previous eruptive phase. We have seen everything from Japanese cargo ships to Venzuelan naval gun boats to Russian military craft to search and rescue choppers to Lebanese freighters coming and going from Hierro's ports. http://www.localizatodo.com/mapa/ The best place outside of IGN to view Canary quakes that pass 2.4 on the richter scale http://www.emsc-csem.org/#2 The National Data Buoy Center - If it ever hits the fan in Hierro, this site SHOULD display where the tsunami has reached and where it's headed, etc. It will display wave height and show wave speed on several buoys as well http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/ [/quote]
I am the former user "Idgits". About 100 consistent followers and contributors and I created the most informative thread on El Hierro and the Canary Islands archipelago that GLP has ever seen.
Thread: Best El Hierro Thread On GLP - Canary Islands - ACTIVITY HAS RETURNED - AGAIN!
I have since deleted the account that I was using to start that thread, thus the reason it says "AC" now as the original poster.
During the course of that thread I removed all of the "Hi's" and "How are you's" and "bump's" until about page 500...which condensed the thread down to around 280 pages. It has since continued to grow and has become a true source of facts surrounding the earthquake swarm and eventual eruption that took place last year, ending early this year.
Since that eruption officially ended, Hierro has shot back into action several times. I believe we are on the 4th major swarm of activity that has occurred since the eruptive phase ended. It has been recommended by one of our most consistent and well informed users "Shenue" as well as others, to start a new thread to showcase the newest events occuring in Hierro. The previous eruption was incredible, teaching science a whole new concept and understanding of underwater eruptions. It also produced the most radioactive lava ever recorded.
The most incredible feat of Hierro though, is how much pressure it is capable of maintaining WITHOUT erupting. In the last swarm we saw such an incredible increase in pressure that any other geologic formation would've theoretically blown sky high. But not Hierro...it's always maintained it's strength. The current combined energy under Hierro from both magma flow and seismic energy released is basically unknown as IGN stopped recording all the joules together...they stopped the eruptive phase recording in May of this year...here is that chart [

So...this new thread is to pick up where Hierro has brought us now. I need to be able to change the thread title as events occur and be able to alert people with that title in case something serious occurs. In addition, there is SO MUCH information in that past thread that it's difficult for new users and followers to sift through to the most recent activities. Below I have comprised a list of information and links relative to the old thread. It's information that took us a year plus to gather!
