We're actually at 16 quakes for the day so far with 8.5 hours left to go!

[link to www.01.ign.es]

There have been 2 quakes in the 2.0+ range and most all of these quakes have been in the 10km range. In addition, they've almost all been in the south near the eruption area.

Update 15/02 19:11 UTC
- 3 more earthquakes : we will from now on only change the number in the title.
Nobody knows what will happen next but CAP science center in La Restinga and IGN Madrid, who is following up the instruments via data link, will certainly be on a higher alert than normal.

Update 15/02 17:52 UTC
- 4 more earthquakes ! , which brings the total of listed earthquakes to 20 today, the most since many months !
- we have still a minimum HT signal which means that the eruption is still hoing
- NO jacuzzi or even stirring area anymore.

23 quakes thus far already today! Something is happening folks. No increase whatsoever in the harmonic tremor and the jacuzzi is practically silent. What do you think is happening? I think we're seeing an expansion in either the magma chamber or the magma tubes. And...we may see surface strength giving way to the long duration events on Hierro. [link to www.01.ign.es]

All of this activity and yet the seismograph is basically flat lined. Remember...it was believed early on the Hierro is siting on top of 50,000 sq. Meters of magma. That is crucial in realizing why many quakes aren't showing up on the seismo on Hierro. It's masking, dampening and drowning out their signals. [link to www.01.ign.es]

 Quoting: Idgits




''Magma

In the beginning we saw pretty much reactivated old evolved magmas and semi solid rocks being erupted, after that followed a long phase of what probably was reactivated rhyolitic mush. That would explain all the ash in the water (suspended tephra) that we saw back then. Now all of that is probably cleared away and we have an unevolved stream of basalts comparatively low on gasses being ejected. This basalt is of deep origin as evidenced by the UrTh (Uranium/Thorium) content in the samples that has been collected from the surface.''

[link to volcanocafe.wordpress.com]

so, basically, a flood basalt eruption?

i'm wondering what this much hotter magma COULD do to those cliffs, right above it.

It could be the adipose (correct word?) of the Canaries. The New Zealand and New Guinea regions have been having some 6.0 quakes recently. Possibly connected? There's also a volcano going off in West Africa right now...not too far from the Canaries. Could be connected?

AC369, for a while we reviewed the idea that magma was actually making its way from La Palma to Hierro and that a giant core was actually sending magma down tubes from a point directly between Tenerife and Grand Canary Island. This study had an awesome yield of information for a couple reasons. Forgive me...I'm currently on some heavy pain meds due to a neck injury somy memory isn't working really good on names. But...there are 3 different types of volcanoes in the Canary Islands. Basaltic Shield volcanoes like Hierro, Strato Volcanoes like La Palma and one other type on Fuerteventura or Lanzarote. I can't remember the name of the type. Anyway...if they're all coming from one source between Tenerife and Grand Canary then...how does it change so quickly and completely in less than 100 miles from the origin? And...if La Palma's strato volcano is feeding Hierro's basaltic shield volcano...how is it processing the new type of magma? Well...that interaction occurred a few months ago and we saw massive magmatic explosions showing up on the seismograph. In fact, the explosive nature was so intense IGN actually had to dumb down the sensors because they were being ruined and drowned out by the magma flow and explosions. The big expectation is that this underwater volcano will soon enter a Surtseyan Eruption phase. This is when it's going to get super hairy. We had a small version of this a few months ago and boulders the size of volkswagens were seen hurled out of a 30 meter high rumble of water. Great points! Great questions!

If this is going to be anything like the runs before the October quakes and eruption...then we should soon see quakes in the low to mid 3.0 or higher. I'm assuming the 3.2 recently caused some changed that allowed the increases to start up. Another 3.2 or larger SHOULD be on its way soon!

this graph was last updated about 5 hours ago. There could be a vast number of quakes not recorded yet over this past 5 hours. There's still almost another 50 minutes to go in this day (UTC) we could easily break 30 once all the numbers are in!

The submarine eruption south of El Hierro Island could be in a process of change: While visible activity on the sea surface above the vent, as well as harmonic tremor signal (thought to be more or less proportional to erupting magma flux) have nearly ceased, the number of earthquakes under the island has increased sharply since yesterday.
On 15 February, more than 20 quakes were measured. Most of the earthquakes were very small, well below magnitude 2, and were clustered beneath the NW and SW sectors of the island at depths of around 10 km.

Not to say that solar activity can't contribute to erthquake activity but since I started watching this Hierro situation, I don't believe there has been a single earthquake connection to solar activity in the Canaries...or anywhere else for that matter. We have seen some really nasty flares pop of and hit earth with no earthquake activity following. AND we have seen good sized quakes occur when there's been absolutely no solar activity. I DO THINK that other planetary bodies play a role in earthquakes though. When we've seen alignments and stuff happening there are often quakes following those events.

 Quoting: Le Palma



Wow! I tried to research the deep quakes we have been seeing over the past few years, of 350 - 800 kms depth. The only explanation I could find was by a Russian scientist, from studying a big Russian volcano. I couldn't copy the text, as it was all protected and hard to link to.

He said that at that depth you had the really deep chambers of magma, below all of the really big volcanoes. Rumblings down there could only mean that they were about to empty upwards, into the higher, and then even higher, chambers of the volcano.

So if this is happening in Indonesia, near the Phillipines, Fiji, Vanuatu and Japan, and the Canary Islands, it doesn't bode well. The deep quakes then started up in some other places, I can't recall them all at the moment though, but I think it was near the Aleutian Islands and off South America?.
