Volcano Activity in Russia [Asia] on Sunday, 04 August, 2013 at 04:41 (04:41 AM) UTC.

Description
A (so far small) seismic crisis has started about a week ago. The earthquake hypocenters are currently located at depths around 30 km SE of the volcano. The new quakes superimpose to the normal seismic activity at shallow depth. It is not clear whether this indicates that magma has started to accumulate at the mantle-crust boundary beneath the volcano, or whether the seismic activity there is purely tectonic and related to the subduction of the Pacific Plate. Currently, there are no indications that the volcano might be in for a new eruption, but since Avachinsky is located very close to Kamchatka's capital town of Petropavlovsk with 200,000 inhabitants, it is being monitored closely by Russian scientists. As Blog Culture Volcan who posted about this story first pointed out, recent studies on the magma plumbing system of Avachinsky show that the volcano's recent eruptions, at least the one in 1991, were fueled by at least two different shallow magma chambers: These are located at 1.8 and 5.5 km depth beneath the summit, and correspond to the boundaries between the floor of the caldera (formed about 30,000 years ago) and the present summit cone, and the contact of the volcanic edifice as a whole overlying carbonate sediment basement, respectively. In both cases, the geologic contact between of different rock types with different densities and structures seem to stop dike propagation and act as storage regions for magma. On the other hand, no deeper magma reservoir has been identified for Avachinsky, and no progression of epicenter depths towards the surface has been seen for the recent deep quakes. This favors the interpretation that the observed quakes are mainly tectonic in origin.

Norwegian volcanism
The Norwegian daily Nyheter informs us that researchers from the University of Bergen have discovered hundreds of undersea volcanoes around Norway, along the Atlantic ridge between Jan Mayen and the Fram Strait. These volcanoes are very shallow and Norwegian scientists believe they might break the surface of the sea at any moment and form a new group of islands. ...

Magma storage and migration associated with the 2011–2012 El Hierro eruption: Implications for crustal magmatic systems at oceanic island volcanoes
Pablo J. González1,*, Sergey V. Samsonov2, Susi Pepe3, Kristy F. Tiampo1, Pietro Tizzani3, Francesco Casu3, José Fernández4, Antonio G. Camacho4, Eugenio Sansosti3

Article first published online: 6 AUG 2013

Starting in July 2011, anomalous seismicity was observed at El Hierro Island, a young oceanic island volcano. On 12 October 2011, the process led to the beginning of a submarine NW-SE fissural eruption at ~15 km from the initial earthquake loci, indicative of significant lateral magma migration. Here we conduct a multifrequency, multisensor interferometric analysis of spaceborne radar images acquired using three different satellite systems (RADARSAT-2, ENVISAT, and COSMO-SkyMed (Constellation of Small Satellites for Mediterranean Basin Observation)). The data fully captures both the pre-eruptive and coeruptive phases. Elastic modeling of the ground deformation is employed to constrain the dynamics associated with the magmatic activity...
Geodetic results reveal two spatially distinct shallow (crustal) magma reservoirs, a deeper central source (9.5 ± 4.0 km), and a shallower magma reservoir at the flank of the southern rift (4.5 ± 2.0 km). The deeper source was recharged, explaining the relatively long basaltic eruption, contributing to the observed island-wide uplift processes, and validating proposed active magma underplating. The shallowest source may be an incipient reservoir that facilitates fractional crystallization as observed at other Canary Islands. Data from this eruption supports a relationship between the depth of the shallow crustal magmatic systems and the long-term magma supply rate and oceanic lithospheric age. Such a relationship implies that a factor controlling the existence/depth of shallow (crustal) magmatic systems in oceanic island volcanoes is the lithosphere thermomechanical behavior.

Feeding andesitic eruptions with a high-speed connection from the mantle
Philipp Ruprecht1 & Terry Plank1

Fast magma refills suggest some volcanoes connect straight to the mantle
Tracking the refilling could provide advanced warning of eruption risks.
by Simon Redfern Aug 1 2013,

Because of their location’s geology, Icelandic volcanoes are known to be directly connected to the Earth’s mantle. New research shows that a volcano in Costa Rica may have a direct connection to the mantle too, despite lying on a much thicker part of Earth’s crust. This discovery suggests that eruptions in a wider range of volcanoes might be predicted by techniques such as earthquake monitoring, something proposed for Icelandic volcanoes. But it also suggests that volcanoes can recharge with magma very quickly, raising the risk of a sudden eruption.

Tectonic plates cover the Earth’s surface. The boundaries between these plates can be dangerous places, with earthquakes, volcanoes, and tsunamis all originating along the places where plates meet. The plates create two types of volcanoes. Those that sit on oceanic crust are directly connected to the mantle (the thick layer between the Earth’s crust and molten outer core); they spew magma directly from it. Others erupt magma that has been heated, mixed, and stored in magma chambers over an extended period. These are assumed to lack a direct connection to the mantle.

Icelandic volcanoes are an example of the former, occurring on the mid-ocean ridge of the North Atlantic where crust is constantly being created. In contrast, most volcanoes around the Pacific rim, including the Costa Rican volcano, have been assumed to be examples of the latter.

That, however, turns out not to be the case, as shown by the work of Philipp Ruprecht and Terry Plank of Columbia University, who published their results in Nature. They studied ash ejected during an eruption of the Irazu volcano in Costa Rica, which occurred between 1963 and 1965, to draw this conclusion...

...Climate scientist Jason Box of the Geological Society of Denmark and Greenland, lead on the “Dark Snow Project” research trip*, explains that the relatively warm water draining down into the ice “heats the ice sheet internally.”

That increase in melt water has “a softening effect” on the ice, he says.

“The ice sheet in its interior is accelerating, and the melt at the margin is enhanced. And I think that means this ice sheet is actively accelerating. And that’s a pretty serious problem for sea-level rise.”...

According to an Indonesian witness, on August 4th 2013, the lava dome at the summit of paluweh partially collapsed, generating explosions and possible pyroclastic flows. An ash plume rose up to 3 km a.s.l. According to this person who climbed the volcano, about 20% of the dome were destroyed during the event. You will see photos on Facebook at this address:

Five people have been killed in a volcanic eruption on a tiny island in Indonesia, officials have said.

Mount Rokatenda, on the island of Palue some 2,000km (1,250 miles) east of Jakarta, spewed ash and rocks hundreds of metres into the air.

Disaster officials said hot ash covered a nearby beach, leaving three adults and two children dead.

The volcano had been rumbling since late last year, forcing the evacuation of hundreds of people.


A spokesman from Indonesia's volcanology agency said it was not clear what the victims had been doing inside an exclusion zone.

Palue is about 4km wide, and lies a short distance off the north coast of Flores, the main island in East Nusa Tenggara province.

Here are a few more details about the deadly eruption of Paluweh volcano. According to an Associated Press report, the six people swept up and killed by a pyroclastic flow had refused to leave the area for safer ground.

More than 500 Palua Island residents who had earlier refused to leave the 3-kilometre exclusion zone were evacuated after Saturday’s eruption to the neighbouring island of Flores where 138 persons arrived on Sunday in the town of Maumere. Eleven people, including two pregnant women and two disabled people, were taken to a hospital due to injuries sustained during the eruption. The people who died included three adults and the two children. The age of the sixth person is not clear. Local authorities are not optimistic about recovering the children’s bodies since they were buried under hot volcanic material...

Big Island quakes unrelated to volcanic eruption, say scientists

...According to Wes Thelen, HVO's Seismic Network Manager, "These earthquakes were most likely structural adjustments of the Earth's crust due to the weight of the island on the underlying mantle. The earthquake likely occurred on a near-horizontal fault plane in the mantle, which has hosted earthquakes in this region before. Despite their location near Kilauea's summit, it's unlikely that the earthquakes were volcanic in nature due to their depth, which is below, and offset from, the volcano's known magma plumbing system."...
HVO Scientist-in-Charge Jim Kauahikaua added that the earthquakes had no apparent effect on Kilauea's ongoing eruptions. "HVO monitoring networks have not detected any significant changes in activity at the summits or rift zones of Kilauea or other Hawaiian volcanoes."...

Now, anyone online can watch live high-definition video of marine life at the Mushroom vent, a 12-foot-tall (4 meters) chimney sitting 5,000 feet (1,520 m) below the ocean's surface. The HD camera is part of a $239 million National Science Foundation project to install a permanent, cabled observatory at Axial Seamount, an underwater volcano located 250 miles (400 kilometers) offshore of Oregon at the Juan de Fuca Ridge. Other cabled sites along the West Coast seafloor will help scientists explore earthquakes, climate change and methane deposits. Watch the video online here: Interactive Oceans

The HD camera was turned on yesterday (Aug. 12) after installation by a remotely operated vehicle (ROV). The video first travels from the hydrothermal vent camera to the ROV over a 30-foot-long (9 m) cable, then up the ROV tether to a research ship, according to the project's website...

Re: The monsters wakes up ! Katla Hekla Iceland Dead Zone and rift as uniform system ! A lot of others worldwide !
makes you wonder about humans.

you see it on this forum, constantly, the utter refusal to believe anything really bad can happen to them, even in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

they reckon that even if la palma were CONFIRMED to have collapsed, and a large wave was DEFINITELY heading for New York, most there still would refuse to believe it, and would refuse to even attempt to get away.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 39621345


Yeah, I'd have a hard time believing that one also. During the entire duration of El Hierro's seismic crisis, and the eruption of the little jacuzzi south of La Restinga, La Palma has had maybe, one quake.

To give you an idea of scale.

If you take the entire volume of the water displaced in the Japan tsunami, you would have about twice of the entire above surface volume of El Hierro. In other words, to generate the same displacement, you would have to instantaneously submerge the entire island... and then you would only have about half of the displacement.

Then you have the problem of it being a point source event. As that wave expands outward, the amount of energy in the wave front declines as a square of the distance traveled, until the wave becomes a planar wavefront. Then the energy doesn't decline very much at all. Japan and the Sumatran tsunamis formed as a planar wave front from the very beginning.

Subsurface topology will effect the energy distribution, but a point source event is still a point source event.

Most people tend to gloss over that while they are busy doom mongering and trying to scare people.

Some volcanologists think that La Palma and El Hierro swap off over time (hundreds of year scale) as to which one is active. Right now, El Hierro is the one making noise and having magma emplacements. Dunno how long that will last.

yes, you're right,
for example Hawaii is much more promising for the formation of waves of comparable energy huffy
