A Journey Inside the Volcano
mpollock May 31st, 2013
ICELAND – You may remember that Team Iceland is trying to determine the origin of interesting columnar-jointed features exposed in the interior of a subglacial pillow ridge. We have several hypotheses, one of which is that they could be related to the internal magma plumbing system. There’s no better way to know what’s inside of a volcano than by actually going there. Fortunately, we’re able to explore the interior of nearby Thrihnukagigur Volcano through the Inside the Volcano Tour...

This is the questions scientists are trying to answer this week at London’s British Museum during a conference entitled “When Europe was covered by ice and ash”.
Some researchers are suggesting that Neanderthals were driven to extinction by a massive volcanic eruption of the Campi Flegrei near Naples 39,000 years ago that led to the triumph of the Homo Sapiens. That was the biggest volcanic eruption in Europe for more than 200,000 years and scientists say that its enormous plumes of ash would have blotted out the sun for months, or possibly years...

At 18:40 hours descendió lahar in the Rio Nimo 1 in its first five minutes with weak noise and quite fluid and subsequently has started listening stronger, giving the impression of being more dense and with enough material blocks, they're being drained to the vicinity of Samalá Channel.

Volcano Activity in Nicaragua on Saturday, 08 June, 2013 at 04:42 (04:42 AM) UTC.

Description
Volcanic tremors and small-scale eruptions Friday put the Nicaraguan Army on alert in case an early warning is required, said the head of the army's Civil Defense in the western Chinandega department Maj. Carlos Caceres. According to his division, the San Cristobal Volcano, located 132 kilometers southwest of the capital Managua, registered some 14 mini-eruptions Friday, accompanied by a cloud of gas and ash over the crater. The Nicaraguan Institute of Territorial Studies (Ineter) said a team of its experts have been stationed for several days some 650 meters from the crater, to better assess the situation. Until now, the experts believe that all volcanic activity has been concentrated inside the crater, and therefore has not posed a danger to the 20 communities situated within a five-kilometer radius of San Cristobal. The Civil Defense's Lt. Col. Gustavo Ramos, who is part of Ineter's team in the area, told the local daily El Nuevo Diario that they were taking samples of the gas emanating from the crater. According to the army division, at least six properties near the crater, including the one hosting Ineter's experts, could be affected if volcanic activity increases. San Cristobal is one of Nicaragua's highest and most active volcanoes, measuring 1,745 meters in height.

Volcano Eruption in Russia [Asia] on Sunday, 09 June, 2013 at 16:52 (04:52 PM) UTC.

Description
The Kamchatkan volcano Shiveluch has thrice emitted columns of hot volcanic ash and gas. The tallest plume reached nine kilometers above the sea level, the Kamchatkan branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences' Geophysical Service reported on Sunday. A code orange alert was issued for the volcano. "Volcano seismicity is excessive, with rocks tumbling down its slopes," the report said. In turn, the Kamchatkan territorial department of the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry said Shiveluch did not jeopardize residential areas and there had been no ash-fall. Rescuers do not recommend visiting the erupting volcano, because ash may cause allergy in people and clog automobile systems. Shiveluch is the northernmost active volcano of Kamchatka; it is situated 45 kilometers away from the Klyuchi town in the Ust-Kamchatsk district with the population of about 5,000. It is also one of the largest volcanoes in Kamchatka. Activity of Shiveluch intensified in May 2009, and a crack of about 30 meters deep went through its dome.

Updated: Friday, 14 June, 2013 at 02:50 UTC
Description
Scientists have raised the alert level for a volcano in the Alaska Peninsula. The Alaska Earthquake Observatory said in a release that elevated surface temperatures recorded Thursday morning at Veniaminof Volcano indicate an eruption is likely underway at the intracaldera cone. No ash plumes were observed Thursday, but clouds have obscured views from a Web camera aimed at the summit. However, scientists said seismic tremors continue, which is an indication of low-level effusive activity and small explosions. The volcano has had elevated levels of seismic activity since Saturday, along with steam emissions. It's located about 480 miles southwest of Anchorage. Scientists said minor emissions of steam and ash may last for months. Veniaminof, pronounced ven-ee-ah-mean-off, has erupted at least 12 times in the past 200 years. The most significant eruptions occurred between 1993 and 1995 when the volcano produced steam and ash and a small lava flow was extruded from a vent. The lava flow melted snow and ice, producing an oval-shaped ice pit. Recent eruptions have been characterized by small explosions and brief bursts of ash, but the latter don't reach more than 20,000 feet. Minor ash-producing explosions occurred in 2002, 2004 and 2005. An eruption in 1983 and 1984 produced an ash plume that went up 25,000 feet. In 1939 following an eruption, several centimeters of fine ash fell on Perryville, about 22 miles away.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 41873243


[link to www.wired.com]

Watch the Shockwave of an Explosion at Mexico’s Popocatepetl

... These domes occasionally collapse or are destroyed by explosions that can lessen the pressure on the magma beneath to create an even large explosion. This is akin to popping the top off a shaken bottle of soda — the dissolved bubbles come out of solution rapidly as the pressure is released and you get an explosion of soda.

Today, Popocatepetl had one of those explosions and thanks to the beautiful weather in Mexico and some nice placement of webcams surrounding the volcano, the explosion was caught on some pretty amazing webcam footage compiled by webcamsdemexico (see above). The video is short, only 30 second long, but after the first few seconds of calm, the explosion occurs, sending a dark grey plume into the atmosphere above the volcano. Now, these explosions come with a lot of force, and you can see after the initial explosion is how the clouds of water vapor around Popocatepetl shudder as the explosion front moves past. Then quickly, the upper flanks of the volcano turn grey from the rapid raining out of ash and volcanic debris (tephra). It is a little surprising how little the clouds actually care that the explosion just occurred at first, but as the explosion continues in this sped up video, the clouds do begin to show more disruption from the hot ash and volcanic gases being released during the explosion...

Watch the Shockwave of an Explosion at Mexico’s Popocatepetl

... These domes occasionally collapse or are destroyed by explosions that can lessen the pressure on the magma beneath to create an even large explosion. This is akin to popping the top off a shaken bottle of soda — the dissolved bubbles come out of solution rapidly as the pressure is released and you get an explosion of soda.

Today, Popocatepetl had one of those explosions and thanks to the beautiful weather in Mexico and some nice placement of webcams surrounding the volcano, the explosion was caught on some pretty amazing webcam footage compiled by webcamsdemexico (see above). The video is short, only 30 second long, but after the first few seconds of calm, the explosion occurs, sending a dark grey plume into the atmosphere above the volcano. Now, these explosions come with a lot of force, and you can see after the initial explosion is how the clouds of water vapor around Popocatepetl shudder as the explosion front moves past. Then quickly, the upper flanks of the volcano turn grey from the rapid raining out of ash and volcanic debris (tephra). It is a little surprising how little the clouds actually care that the explosion just occurred at first, but as the explosion continues in this sped up video, the clouds do begin to show more disruption from the hot ash and volcanic gases being released during the explosion...
