Etna has had powerful explosive eruptions in the past (including a Plinian eruption in 122 B.C.) - and also the lava fountaining episodes in these days are rather explosive (last night's paroxysm led to massive pyroclastic fallout over Etna's northeast flank). The reason for this unusually high explosivity (for a basaltic volcano) is the enormous quantity of water vapor in the magma.

"...What is most intriguing about the recent activity, is that it is much more explosive than what has been seen at Etna in the past few centuries. This is probably because more magma is rising faster to the surface, and thus less gas is lost from the magma (foremost water vapor, which makes eruptions explosive). We've seen many similar episodes of lava fountaining at Etna over the years - actually, when I first visited Etna in September 1989, it was making lava fountains twice per day, for about one week - but many have not been as violent as these latest ones. During last night's lava fountain, the entire northeastern flank of Etna was buried under a sheet of glowing pyroclastic material; there are a few spectacular photos circulating, which I hopefully can include in the forthcoming INGV-Osservatorio Etneo report on this lava fountain ..."

Let's try to continue and develop that said above recognized and probably the most authoritative expert on Etna.

What does he say about the reasons why the magma was more water and respectively gas?

He says, "probably because the magma more and she quickly rises to the surface."

Maybe so, but look - he does not approve it definitely.

Why? Because there may be other reasons.

Remember that Etna is exactly at the junction area of the European and African plates?
And if the increase is caused by magma coming acceleration of subduction, and the increase in emissions due to the arrival with the top of the large volumes of sea water (which, by the way - this is well known - is a good "lubricant" during tectonic movements)?

Another option - the formation of new cracks in the crust itself around the magma reservoir, which also received a large amount of water (remember quite recently the great flood in Sicily)?

Need to explain how explosive these options?

He said with authority:
"but many have not been as violent as these latest ones"

We are also in this topic many times marked -

paroxysms start explosively and without warning -
there are no early symptoms
such as gradual growth of tremor or amplification of seismic -
only that it was quiet and then suddenly jump up!

Was it before?
it's not that expert says, but I think not.
And this is the main danger:

Firstly, BBC news, especially since two years ago, is not the most authoritative and reliable source in such matters ohyeah

Secondly, even that is outdated and not the most reliable in this question source, does nothing of what was said here about Etna does not deny, in fact - even partially confirmed. To see this, it suffices to read a bit more closely about what they write, for example :
"If (take attention!) they are correct, this would signal the start of a new subduction zone - a rare event, scientifically fascinating"
"The Mediterranean Sea's geological structure and history are quite complex"
"bits of the African plate that did subduct have broken off and are descending to the Earth's mantle"
"We see what motion occurs in the earthquakes, and we see that the fault planes dip towards the South"
etc

so I think everyone here is in force ohyeah

March 07 11:00 h (March 07, 17:00 GMT)

After some weeks of relatively low activity, today at 5:07 h there was an increase in the number of low amplitude exhalations, this increase was accompanied by the emission of incandescent fragments at 500 m from the crater, on the northeast slope (see image 1). Later, at 6:00 the frequency of such exhalations increased to observe a sequence is sometimes referred to a exhalations train. Since that time, the volcano has remained an emission of water vapor and gas, with moderate amounts of ash that reached an average height of 1100 m above the crater, moving toward the northeast, which persists until the time of this report (see image 2). There have been reports of ashfall at the airport of the city of Puebla, it is possible to expect falling ash in low amounts in the towns of Santiago Xalitzintla, San Nicolas de los Ranchos, San Andrés Calpan, Huejotzingo, among others. ...

Small Explosive Eruptions at Indonesia’s Tangkubanparahu

...This week, it was increasing activity at Tangkubanparahu on Java that has people’s attention. The volcano has produced a number of small-to-moderate explosive eruptions over the past day that resulted in a ~500 meter / 1,640 foot ash plume — enough noise to deem the entire summit crater area off limits to the frequent tourists who hike the mountain and to raise the alert status to its second highest level...If the activity at the volcano were to increase, it is interesting to note that the city of Bandung (population 7.4 million) is only 15 km from Tangkubanparahu. Bandung is in quite an auspicious location, with no less than 11 volcanoes listed in the Global Volcanism Program database within 70 kilometers of the city...

47: Indonesian Mount Tangkuban Perahu volcano spews ash into sky

Posted on March 8, 2013by The Extinction Protocol

March 8, 2013 – JAKARTA, Indonesia — Indonesia scientists say they are closely monitoring a smoking volcano on Java Island, urging villagers and tourists to stay off the mountain’s slope. Government volcanologist Hendra Gunawan said Thursday that Mount Tangkuban Perahu in West Java province shot up smoke and ash nearly 500 meters (1,640 feet) into the air since Monday, and was placed at the second-highest alert level. It does not send debris or lava far down its slopes and nearby towns and villages were in no danger, but authorities warned tourists off limit its danger zone of 1.5 kilometers (1 mile) from the crater, citing a build-up of poison gas inside the peaks. The 2,084 meter (6,837 feet)-high mountain is one of Java’s most popular tourist attractions where people can hike to the edge of the crater to view boiling mud up close. It last erupted in 1983. –News Observer [link to theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com]

why is it ONLY God showing THAT signal?

all the surrounding ones are flatlining too on the green and red

it is NOT wind.

[link to hraun.vedur.is]

ALF right on the south coast shows a similarish signal

they have had wind before, i have never seen this signal. I have loads of charts saved, and I have checked them all.

it is a VERY odd signal. no variation, at all, almost straight line now for 2 and a half days.

i'll keep watching it.

this signal may indeed contain a very small part of some useful information, but still highly doubt it. see for yourself what's going on in Katla:
very strong wind - this time
long and powerful glacier melts as temperatures generally well above 0 - that's two
[link to en.vedur.is]
the constantly occurring "ghosts earthquakes " as result of movements and cracking of ice, you can see right now and see for:

etc.

i think now they are just the cause of such plots of tremor (together with the wind)
although... who knows, if we hear in the coming days of floods due to the melting of the glacier, so that's when you're right, the magma close to the surface

What are the chances that Etna could go explosive? Could that ever happen?
good question

excellent answer on this good question :
[link to www.wired.com]

Boris Behncke a320er • 3 hours ago −
Etna has had powerful explosive eruptions in the past (including a Plinian eruption in 122 B.C.) - and also the lava fountaining episodes in these days are rather explosive (last night's paroxysm led to massive pyroclastic fallout over Etna's northeast flank). The reason for this unusually high explosivity (for a basaltic volcano) is the enormous quantity of water vapor in the magma.

very informative and important continuation
[link to www.wired.com]
"...What is most intriguing about the recent activity, is that it is much more explosive than what has been seen at Etna in the past few centuries. This is probably because more magma is rising faster to the surface, and thus less gas is lost from the magma (foremost water vapor, which makes eruptions explosive). We've seen many similar episodes of lava fountaining at Etna over the years - actually, when I first visited Etna in September 1989, it was making lava fountains twice per day, for about one week - but many have not been as violent as these latest ones. During last night's lava fountain, the entire northeastern flank of Etna was buried under a sheet of glowing pyroclastic material; there are a few spectacular photos circulating, which I hopefully can include in the forthcoming INGV-Osservatorio Etneo report on this lava fountain ..."

Let's try to continue and develop that said above recognized and probably the most authoritative expert on Etna.

What does he say about the reasons why the magma was more water and respectively gas?

He says, "probably because the magma more and she quickly rises to the surface."

Maybe so, but look - he does not approve it definitely.

Why? Because there may be other reasons.

Remember that Etna is exactly at the junction area of the European and African plates?
And if the increase is caused by magma coming acceleration of subduction, and the increase in emissions due to the arrival with the top of the large volumes of sea water (which, by the way - this is well known - is a good "lubricant" during tectonic movements)?

Another option - the formation of new cracks in the crust itself around the magma reservoir, which also received a large amount of water (remember quite recently the great flood in Sicily)?

Need to explain how explosive these options?

He said with authority:
"but many have not been as violent as these latest ones"

We are also in this topic many times marked -

paroxysms start explosively and without warning -
there are no early symptoms
such as gradual growth of tremor or amplification of seismic -
only that it was quiet and then suddenly jump up!

Was it before?
it's not that expert says, but I think not.
And this is the main danger:
Etna becomes unpredictable
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 35734840


and what they would like to continue to deal with what is really going on with Etna.

Thus, the expert says that the magma unusually high water and gas.

A mixture of magma, gas, steam and water under high pressure is released from the crater and we will eventually see those fountains that this year we have already seen seven times.

If the magma is on its way to the surface of the solid volumes of water encountered, the front of the fountain would be observed powerful, explosive character emissions pillars water-gas mixture, but it was not.
Hence, the magma towards the surface of the water encountered in any large cavities within the body of the mountain. In these cavities occurs first boiling water after contact with magma, forming a mixture of magma, water and steam (from now on, that is, from the time of the meeting of magma with water, and was observed repeatedly noted here, "explosive" growth of tremor), and then thrown out of the fountains of that mixture.

What else unusual about the last paroxysms and that we should pay attention to?
This is something that is large pieces of pumice deposited in surroundings (above is a video recorded by the residents of Etna's surroundings where they collect such pieces in their balconies, and a video of an unusually large pieces on the roads).
If volume of such big pices was few, one would assume the launching recently deposited volcanic material only from the outside of the cones.
Since such large pieces apparently had many large areas, it means rising and dispersing a large amount of such material. So it is clearly mainly a material from inner parts of cones was torn off by explosive mixing magma with the water in the aforementioned voids.
Accordingly, it had to increase the volume of these voids within the body of the mountain.
Another consequence of the explosive nature of the magma mixing with the water inside the cavities may well become formation of new cracks and correspondingly increase the flow of water into these cavities with each new paroxysm.

of course, all this is to a large extent only reasoning not supported by any geophysical data (hope that they will soon be made)... but i guess in general the picture is about painted above. that is really Etna becomes more and more dangerous...
