i missed the start of it, but Channel 5+1 is on channel 177 on Sky, so you can watch it at 9pm

they are REALLY ramping Iceland doom, put it that way.

especially Hekla, and REALLY especially Katla

without a doubt. you won't get many responses, because people are all katla'd out, but when they realise the full implications of what may happen here, the interest will perk up.

while we still have internet, that is.

this island SCARES THE SHIT out of me, tbph! I think it has the potential to destroy the UK, and North west europe.

Etna

...19:45: The 13th paroxysm is at its highest with lava fountains and at least one lava flow. A conventional but dramatic event!

20:30: It’s now night on Mount Etna. The paroxysm is going on with a lava fountain and a lava low travelling towards the Valle del Bove.

21:00: The INGV website with the tremor and the seismographs is no longer accessible but it seems the paroxysm has lost some of its intensity. The lava fountains are less powerful. However, the lava flow that travels towards the Valle del Bove is still well fed.

21:30: Even though the lava fountains are still vigorous, the tremor shows that the 13th paroxysm is declining. Like the previous ones, it was quite spectacular despite the start that could not really be seen because of the clouds.

And I was going to post the following: “It seems Hekla is having an earthquake about every 3 days. Since last earthquake it is about time to see another earthquake, probably happening tomorrow”

And the earthquake just happened!

I think there are major changes precursor to an eruption in Hekla. I think there is a high change of Hekla erupting within the next days. Now I am even more confident that it might erupt.

So today we had a 1.4 deep earthquake, following a major strain event at Hekla.

The sequence of events should be this:
- earthquakes like this one, a few of them, starting about 1-2 hours before the eruption
- then, a major strain event
- then, larger earthquakes and tremor starts (this is 20min before the eruption)
- after that, the eruption starts with a major explosion and a ash cloud following it
- the ash column last 1 to a few days and then large lava fountains follow for several days to weeks
[link to volcanocafe.wordpress.com]
 Quoting: Luisport


a lot possible mistakes (which however is quite excusable for amateur observes as in volkanocafe cool2):

firstly, eqs "like this one" will last a long time (a month - six weeks) at intervals of a day or two, then followed a sharp increase in magnitude and only after that, "1-2 hour " later (more likely 6-8 hours) will eruptive phase.
then, " major strain event" and eruptive phase will start simultaneously, tremor before will almost absent (or extremely short time).
finally, not necessarily be the beginning of an explosive nature, the first phase may be numerous fissure eruptions of lava and then blasts the main crater and ash emissions tounge



two forecasts about eruption development : will see which one will be closer to the truth verycool

and yet here forecast for time

no, it had not yet begun,
all the fun starts after the arrival of warm weather is stable and strong melting

end of April or May cool2

not earlier

...Since yesterday afternoon so far, 70 have been recorded signals long period events and tremor 13 emission periods, marking a clear shift to the values obtained in the previous days where the average was 12 earthquakes per day. From 05h30 TL today there was a very energetic emission signal which produced a column of steam with average content of ash that rose about 4 km above the crater, the column was maintained steadily with a height of 2.5 km for about 30 minutes. It was observed that the column began remained scattered on all sides of the volcano, which produced minor ash falls in several areas near the volcano's flanks (Figure 2). At the time of issue of this report maintains a column height of 1 km (approx) and toward the West.

Supervolcano eruptions may not be so deadly after all

20:00 29 April 2013 by Michael Marshall
For similar stories, visit the Climate Change Topic Guide

...If Graf and Lane are right, a supervolcano eruption might not cool the global climate much. But that doesn't make it harmless. Anyone within 100 kilometres of the blast would almost surely be killed by a vast quilt of hot ash and gas smothering the landscape. The key point affecting species' survival would be where this cloud headed. The Indonesian "hobbits" (Homo floresiensis) only survived Toba because the ash cloud travelled west – away from their home island of Flores.

And even if the climate did not change much, there would be global consequences if a supervolcano erupted today. After all, the minor eruption of Iceland's Eyjafjallajökull in 2010 was enough to disrupt air transport for weeks. "If Yellowstone went up, US industry would be very strongly harmed," says Graf.

[link to farm9.staticflickr.com]

...This photo renders an idea of the problem - the black mounds in the foreground are heaps of tephra that were dumped on a little square at the northern margin of Zafferana Etnea after the repeated tephra falls of February-April 2013; this little square was originally part of a public park. There are scenes like this everywhere in the tephra fall sectors on Etna's flanks. And then there are other scenes, like the endless rows of tephra-filled plastic bags piled up along roads, which no one has so far thought of removing (because nobody knows where to put that stuff and what to do with it); in the meantime they have been covered with new layers of tephra by more recent episodes of lava fountaining. Overall, people seem to have resigned, because more than once they have made the experience that as soon as they have cleaned up their roofs, their terraces, and the sidewalk in front of their homes, there will be a new lava fountain and a new shower of pieces of black volcanic rock.

Photo taken on the morning of 29 April 2013, looking south toward the center of Zafferana Etnea.

...If Graf and Lane are right, a supervolcano eruption might not cool the global climate much. But that doesn't make it harmless. Anyone within 100 kilometres of the blast would almost surely be killed by a vast quilt of hot ash and gas smothering the landscape. The key point affecting species' survival would be where this cloud headed. The Indonesian "hobbits" (Homo floresiensis) only survived Toba because the ash cloud travelled west – away from their home island of Flores.

And even if the climate did not change much, there would be global consequences if a supervolcano erupted today. After all, the minor eruption of Iceland's Eyjafjallajökull in 2010 was enough to disrupt air transport for weeks. "If Yellowstone went up, US industry would be very strongly harmed," says Graf.

rofl what a load of crock. These fukers will say anything to get their "research" noticed so they can get more funding to keep their bullshit coming. Believe me, if Yellowstone had a large eruption, the US industry would be the least of our problems.

Hekla volcano (Iceland): strong inflation suggest volcano could be close to erupting

Posted on May 1, 2013by The Extinction Protocol

May 1, 2013 – ICELAND - The famous Icelandic volcano is showing further signs that indicate an eruption could occur in a near future. Significant rapid inflation, concentrated in the northern part of the volcano, has been detected since early April and likely represents accumulation of rising magma underneath. Already in mid March this year, an earthquake swarm, volcanic tremor and deformation caused an alert, because it was believed that this was caused by rapid movement of magma under the volcano. The last eruption of the volcano was in March 2000, and it is estimated that by now, a significantly larger volume of magma has since then accumulated beneath the volcano. This would mean that a new eruption should be expected to be larger than the last one. Hekla’s eruptions normally begin with a powerful explosive phase, and could pose a significant hazard to anyone in close (less than 10 km) proximity during the onset of it. –Volcano Discovery

Growing threat from Iceland volcanoes: British researchers say some Icelandic volcanoes could produce eruptions just as explosive as those in the Pacific Rim, with disruptive ash clouds. Previously, scientists had thought that Icelandic magma was less “fizzy” — containing less volcanic gases like carbon dioxide — than that in Pacific Ocean volcanoes, and expected much less explosive eruptions by comparison. However, research by Britain’s The Open University and Lancaster University said they’ve found evidence of Icelandic magma twice as “fizzy” as previously believed, increasing the likelihood of future eruptions like that of the Eyjafjallajokull volcano in 2010 that created ash clouds that disrupted air travel over large parts of Europe. The researchers analyzed pumice and lava from an eruption at Iceland’s Torfajokull volcano some 70,000 years ago to search for evidence of the levels of gases from water and carbon dioxide in the eruption. “I was amazed by what I found,” Lancaster University doctoral student Jacqui Owen said. “I measured up to 5 percent of water in the inclusions, more than double what was expected for Iceland, and similar in fact to the values for explosive eruptions in the Pacific ‘Ring of Fire.’ “We knew the Torfajokull volcanic eruption was huge — almost 100 times bigger than recent eruptions in Iceland — but now we also know it was surprisingly gas-rich.” The researchers said their study shows Icelandic volcanoes have the power to generate the fine ash capable of being transported long distances and cause disruption across Europe. With worrying evidence of increased volcanic activity, “Iceland’s position close to mainland Europe and the north Atlantic flight corridors means air travel could be affected again,” Lancaster researcher Hugh Tuffen said. -UPI [link to theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com]
