[color=red]2012-09-22 11:04 UTC[/color] - 3 new earthquakes in mixed depth layers as you can see below. - the last 10 epicenters are showing a mixed picture - we do see again some earthquakes in the southern part of the island and in the Las Calmas sea. These earthquakes are situated in the 18 to 22 km depth zone - for those people only following this site recently : last years eruption (colouring of the water, poisonous magma, floating lava, etc (see our first 30 parts below) was approx.. at the southernmost epicenter on the map below [color=red]2012-09-22 10:17 UTC[/color] [b]A word from Joke Volta, yes still living on the island and worried even more than before :[/b] Hello everybody…this must be the longest volcano reporting of the world… For instance last week, activity was coming up, and reaching levels of about 200 quakes a day (198 te be exact) A very short period, and a lot of quakes, if you compare it to what happened in June this year. I was really worried, but the situation is still the same, go on with watching because yesterday’s swarm in the Golfo-bay-area was shallow again (other active spot). Let’s not forget the deformation, must be hugh forces, to lift up the island this way… So…we go on reporting, wishing you all a nice weekend. Be patient … geological procedures can be last a long time … Joke Volta [color=red]2012-09-22 05:46 UTC[/color] [b]GPS Deformations[/b] (vertical) : Restinga station lifted 0.5 cm and Pinar a few mm, Frontera on the other hand deflated approx. 1 cm. [color=red]2012-09-22 05:32 UTC[/color] - September 21 ended with 25 earthquakes. A M1.1 at a depth of 23 km and a M1.5 at a depth of 8 km. - 3 earthquakes so far today http://earthquake-report.com/2011/09/25/el-hierro-canary-islands-spain-volcanic-risk-alert-increased-to-yellow/ [/quote] What an uneasy feeling...at least in California I can drive east and still be on steady ground. Out there on an island...you better know how to swim or have a fast boat! [/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!
