look at those EQs south of Iceland on the 2nd of May

NOWHERE near the mid atlantic ridge, but at the base of the slope that leads up to it

is the WHOLE PLUME rising, putting huge pressure on the entire region?

[link to en.vedur.is]

look again at Katla. notice one solitary little quake in Torfajakull? I think the huge pressure from below is putting strain on all the weak spots in the crust, ie the calderas, like askja, katla, Torfajakull etc, and now an EQ swarm at the base of the mountain rane that lead up to the ridge. I know it's only one quake, but this is happening all the time. I posted a while back about all the swarms this past few years that Jon has reported

add all this action to the heavy activity on the TFZ as well, and when you put it all together, I believe a slow motion total fucking disaster is heading straight for us.

when this headfuck gets going, it could finish off the northern hemisphere

maybe the WHOLE reason for the economic collapse as well?

Low-level eruption reported at Alaska’s Cleveland volcano

Posted on May 5, 2013by The Extinction Protocol


May 5, 2013 – ALASKA – Scientists say Alaska’s Cleveland Volcano is undergoing a continuous low-level eruption. The activity began with an explosion early Saturday morning, followed by two other explosions hours later. The Alaska Volcano Observatory and U.S. Geological Survey say satellites and cameras suggest low-level emissions of gas, steam and a small amount of ash. Satellites detected highly elevated surface temperatures at the summit. The Federal Aviation Administration said there are no flight restrictions as a result. The volcano in the Aleutian Islands is 940 miles southwest of Anchorage. Its most recent significant eruption began in February 2001 and featured three explosive events that sent ash clouds as high 39,000 feet above sea level. It also produced a rubbly lava flow and hot avalanche that reached the sea. –ABC News [link to theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com]

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]

I am starting to focus increasingly on the impact of this activity on the people living around Etna, which is getting more and more dramatic. Many towns and villages, especially in the southeastern, eastern and northeastern sectors of Etna have repeatedly received heavy tephra fallout, and driving through these areas you are gradually invaded by a sensation of sadness, it's all black and dusty, there are incredible amounts of scoriae and ash piled up along roads, the colors of spring are suppressed, and people are reluctant to put much effort into cleaning up because too many times they had just cleaned up and a few hours later, everything was covered with a fresh layer of black pyroclastics.

If it did, the situation would be quite different. » Let’s cross our fingers that the paroxysms or the eruptions remain concentrated in the summit area. It would be a real problem if vents or fissures opened at lower altitudes. The lava flows would rapidly become a threat to populated areas. Mount Etna has an eruptive history which shows that such events should not be excluded.

Since the summer of 2010, the staff of the Mapping Laboratory of the INGV-Osservatorio Etneo, of which I am part, has repeatedly taken GPS surveys in the summit area of Etna to document the distribution of new eruptive products and morphological changes. The most significant change in recent years has been the growth of the New Southeast Crater cone since the spring of 2011. On 3 May 2013, we were back on the spot to take GPS readings aided by range-finding binoculars...
Note the deep scar in the side of the New Southeast Crater cone, just between my two colleagues taking the rangefinding binoculars and GPS readings. The scar formed early during the 27 April 2013 paroxysmal episode when a portion of the cone's flank collapsed; the rounded ridge in the right background is the deposit of this collapse...

it's obvious anyway. you put that much crap into the atmosphere, and the temps WILL lower by very significant amounts, as proved by the ice cores

what is the POINT of even trying to disprove this? Just to buy TPTB a few more days/weeks/months AFTER a huge eruption, to keep the sheep calm while they go into hiding?

Plosky Tolbachik volcano activity intensifies in Kamchatka

Posted on May 6, 2013by The Extinction Protocol

May 6, 2013 – KAMCHATKA – Observers in Kamchatka have registered intensification of the activity of the Plosky Tolbachik volcano, the Kamchatka volcano observatory reported on Monday, referring to data of the scientists that work at the Tolud base in the immediate vicinity of the eruption site. The activity intensification was recorded on May 4 “in the lateral outbreak crater,” the observatory specified. Lava is gushing there, ejected to a height of 100 meters. According to the Kamchatka branch of the Geophysical Service of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS), high seismic activity is registered on the volcano – the giant mount with a height exceeding 3.85 thousand metres above sea level, is vibrating with an amplitude of 3.25 microns per second. The eruption of the Plosky Tolbachik volcano continues for the sixth consecutive month. In the early days of the eruption lava flows from Plosky Toblachik destroyed two bases of the Institute of Volcanology and Seismology that were located in the Tolbachink dale. However, scientists believe that the eruption is a real present for the 50th anniversary of the Institute that was marked in 2012. The eruption was given its own name – “Fissure Eruption of the 50th Anniversary of the Institute of Volcanology and Seismology of the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences in the Tolbachik Dale.” Plosky Tolbachik awakened on November 27, last year, after being dormant for 36 years from the moment of its great fissure eruption that was observed in 1975-1976. In Tolbachik dale, south of Plosky Tolbachik at an altitude of about 1.7 kilometres above sea level, a fissure zone with two active centres formed. The lava has been pouring from there. The Plosky Tolbachik eruption was assessed by scientists as outstanding. A lava lake has formed in the active zone. The lava flows have destroyed a station of the Institute of Volcanology and Seismology in the area of the Vodopadny creek, the Leningradskaya research base and a base of the Volcanoes of Kamchatka natural park. Trees were burning near the lava fields. The erupting volcano in Russia’s Far East has become a sightseeing hotspot for crowds of thrill-seeking tourists eager to see flows of lava and clouds of ash. The height of Plosky Tolbachik is 3 thousand 85 metres above sea level. It is located in the south-western sector of the Klyuchevskaya group of volcanoes in Kamchatka in the east 343 kilometres from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. The volcano poses no threat to nearby populated localities. Emergencies Ministry officers have been on duty in the volcano area whose task is to ensure safety of people going to the foot of the giant mount. There are five populated localities at distances from 50 km to 68 km from the foot of the volcano – the settlements of Klyuchi, Maiskoye, Kozyrevsk, Lazo and Atlasovo with the total population of more than 8.1 thousand. The volcano poses no threat to nearby populated localities, it is under continuous monitoring. -RAIR [link to theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com]

A weekly feature provided by scientists at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory.

May 2, 2013
Are future eruptions possible west of the Island of Hawai'i?

Do you, like most people, think that eruptions in Hawaii are confined to the Island of Hawai'i on Maui has erupted at least once in the past 500 years and will probably erupt again.While most eruptions in the Hawaiian Islands over the past several hundred years have occurred on the Islands of Maui and Hawai'i—not all of them have.
Submarine eruptions west of Maui have been reported three times in the past 60 years. The first was in August–September 1955, near Necker Island (650 km or 410 mi northwest of Honolulu). The most recent was in early 2011, when a sea captain reported "steam rising up violently from the sea surface" in the vicinity of Milwaukee Bank, more than 3,000 km (almost 2,000 mi) northwest of Honolulu. No samples were obtained, so volcanic activity could not be confirmed. Neither location was expected to host volcanic activity ever again...

MAYON VOLCANO ADVISORY 07 May 2013 8:30 AM
Mayon Volcano (13.2500°N, 123.6833°E) at 8:00 AM today, produced a small phreatic event that lasted about 73 seconds. The gray to brown clouds reached 500 meters above the summit and drifted west southwest. No volcanic earthquake was detected within the past 24-hour observation period. Seismic and gas emission parameters remain within background levels and indicate no intensification of volcanic activity.
With the above observations, PHIVOLCS is maintaining an Alert Level 0 status which means that no magmatic eruption is imminent. However, small phreatic explosions including small steam and ash ejections may occur suddenly with little or no warning. It is strongly advised that the public refrain from entering the 6-kilometer radius Permanent Danger Zone (PDZ) due to the threat of sudden steam-driven eruptions and rock falls from the upper and middle slopes of the volcano

Phreatic eruption at #Mayon volcano, #Philippines kills 4 climbers Tuesday 7 May.

[link to www.volcano.si.edu]
Volcano Type: Stratovolcano
Volcano Status: Historical
Last Known Eruption: 2010
Summit Elevation: 2462 m 8,077 feet
Latitude: 13.257°N 13°15'24"N
Longitude: 123.685°E 123°41'6"E
Beautifully symmetrical Mayon volcano, which rises to 2462 m above the Albay Gulf, is the Philippines' most active volcano. The structurally simple volcano has steep upper slopes averaging 35-40 degrees that are capped by a small summit crater. The historical eruptions of this basaltic-andesitic volcano date back to 1616 and range from strombolian to basaltic plinian, with cyclical activity beginning with basaltic eruptions, followed by longer term andesitic lava flows. Eruptions occur predominately from the central conduit and have also produced lava flows that travel far down the flanks. Pyroclastic flows and mudflows have commonly swept down many of the approximately 40 ravines that radiate from the summit and have often devastated populated lowland areas. Mayon's most violent eruption, in 1814, killed more than 1200 people and devastated several towns.

... 5 climbers were killed and at least 7 others were seriously injured near the crater of Mayon volcano when it spewed huge rocks and ash after daybreak Tuesday in its first eruption in three years. The volcano was quiet at the moment of the accident. The 20 climbers were surprised by an explosion which was both sudden and violent.

The climbers who died were struck by huge rocks, “as big as a living-room”, according to a guide. They include a German, an Austrian and a Filipino. The injured include foreigners and Filipino guides. Some are in critical condition.

No alert was raised for the volcano following the latest eruption and no evacuation is being planned...

I am starting to focus increasingly on the impact of this activity on the people living around Etna, which is getting more and more dramatic. Many towns and villages, especially in the southeastern, eastern and northeastern sectors of Etna have repeatedly received heavy tephra fallout, and driving through these areas you are gradually invaded by a sensation of sadness, it's all black and dusty, there are incredible amounts of scoriae and ash piled up along roads, the colors of spring are suppressed, and people are reluctant to put much effort into cleaning up because too many times they had just cleaned up and a few hours later, everything was covered with a fresh layer of black pyroclastics.

...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.

...Boris added that the latest paroxysms have been different from most of those of the past, many of them have been much more explosive and also much more voluminous than those, for example, of the year 2000. […] “There is quite some concern about how things will go on, Etna is not showing the least sign of changing her behaviour in the foreseeable future …”

I answered Boris that “as long as the volcano behaves this way, it is a good thing for the people who live in Santa Venerina, Zafferana , Nicolosi and so on. The volcano is dirty and forces people to sweep away the ash and clean their houses but it would be much worse if an eruption occurred on the lower slopes of the volcano! The current situation confirms what I concluded from my observations in the late 1990s. I was then convinced there was a shallow magma chamber beneath the SE part of the summit area. What I fear most today is that the current activity weakens the SE flank of the volcano and reactivates the fracture that crosses the SP 92 road. If it did, the situation would be quite different. » Let’s cross our fingers that the paroxysms or the eruptions remain concentrated in the summit area. It would be a real problem if vents or fissures opened at lower altitudes. The lava flows would rapidly become a threat to populated areas. Mount Etna has an eruptive history which shows that such events should not be excluded. We just need to remember the 1928 eruption that destroyed Mascali or the 1991-1994 eruption that started on the upper wall of the Valle del Bove and caused days of fear and anxiety to the inhabitants of Zafferana Etnea…
