Hawaii last news

...Recent Observations at the middle east rift zone vents: Lava activity on pali and the coastal plain, fed by lava tubes extending from Pu`u `O`o, continued in three areas with no significant changes. Lava flows remained active just above the pali. An approximately 1 km-wide (0.6 mi wide) lava flow remained active on the coastal plain with minor surface activity straddling the easternmost boundary of Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park at the coast and entering the ocean at several locations, both inside and outside Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park. To the west of this flow, a 350 m (1,150 ft) wide lava flow continued to advance toward the coast and remained active with scattered breakouts through this morning (visible in the R2cam)...

The Deep Roots of Catastrophe
PARTLY MOLTEN, FLORIDA-SIZED BLOB FORMS ATOP EARTH’S CORE

pic: [link to unews.utah.edu]

Feb. 7, 2013 – A University of Utah seismologist analyzed seismic waves that bombarded Earth’s core, and believes he got a look at the earliest roots of Earth’s most cataclysmic kind of volcanic eruption. But don’t worry. He says it won’t happen for perhaps 200 million years.

“What we may be detecting is the start of one of these large eruptive events that – if it ever happens – could cause very massive destruction on Earth,” says seismologist Michael Thorne, the study’s principal author and an assistant professor of geology and geophysics at the University of Utah...
“My study might be the first to show actual seismic evidence that the piles are moving,” he says. “People who have done previous simulations have suggested this. They are sitting atop the core and getting pushed around by overlying mantle forces like subduction. They move around on the core somewhat like continental plates drift at Earth’s surface.”
Thorne says the merging LLSVP piles are each about 1,800 miles diameter, forming a single pile some 3,600 miles wide from east to west and stretching across Earth’s core beneath an area from Australia almost to South America. Two blobs, or ULVZs, on the piles’ edges merged to form a new blob that is perhaps 6 to 10 miles thick and covers an area about 500 miles long and 150 miles wide, about the area of Florida or “eight to 10 times larger than any ULVZs we observed before,” Thorne says...

Eruption of Tolbachik, Kamchatka last news

Seven new amazing, fantastic videos of lava rivers and lakes at site of Observatory of volcanology ( Kluchy village)
[link to www.volkstat.ru]

intersting news about eruption, Google translation

[link to www.volkstat.ru]

7 and 8 February a group of tourists were in the area of flank eruption Flat Tolbachik.

From the words of the climber A.Bichenko: activity in the crater of a breakthrough was weak, which allowed to approach the crater to a distance of about 50 m
The level of the lava in the crater has fallen dramatically. On the surface of the lake constantly rising lava bubbles. Bursting emissions they created incandescent material to a height of 50-80 m boiling lava - a fantastic spectacle.

The lava flow, which flows into the South-West direction ceased. Source of the river has shifted to the east and the lava came in two streams that are below the combined and broad river flowing north Claws in the southeastern direction. Farther down the river sank under the surface of the old stream. After a few hundred meters, she again appeared on the surface and moving towards a round hill (1258 m). The river is very fast and maybe tomorrow it reaches the boundary of the forest.

quote from that super eruption link above...

Several of the largest volcanic eruptions of the last few hundred years (Tambora, 1815; Krakatau*, 1883; Pinatubo, 1991) have caused major climatic anomalies in the two to three years after the eruption by creating a cloud of sulphuric acid droplets in the upper atmosphere. These droplets absorb and reflect sunlight, and absorb heat from the Earth, warming the upper atmosphere and cooling the lower atmosphere. The global climate system is disturbed, resulting in pronounced, anomalous warming and cooling of different parts of the Earth at different times.

now, tell me, what EXACTLY have we been witnessing this past couple of months??

Yet the beginnings of this change in the weather can be traced back to strange goings-on, miles above us in the atmosphere, many days ago.

For a few weeks now, forecasters have been monitoring an abrupt jump in temperatures way up in the stratosphere - not a cooling, but actually a sudden warming.

January 23, 2013 – CLIMATE – An unusual event playing out high in the atmosphere above the Arctic Circle is setting the stage for what could be weeks upon weeks of frigid cold across wide swaths of the U.S., having already helped to bring cold and snowy weather to parts of Europe. Forecast high temperatures on Monday, Jan. 21, from the GFS computer model. This phenomenon, known as a “sudden stratospheric warming event,” started on Jan. 6, but is something that is just beginning to have an effect on weather patterns across North America and Europe. While the physics behind sudden stratospheric warming events are complicated, their implications are not: such events are often harbingers of colder weather in North America and Eurasia. The ongoing event favors colder and possibly stormier weather for as long as four to eight weeks after the event, meaning that after a mild start to the winter, the rest of this month and February could bring the coldest weather of the winter season to parts of the U.S., along with a heightened chance of snow.


THAT is what is happening. All the eruptions we have seen have had a cumulative effect, and have pumped a hell of a lot of s02 into the stratosphere, bit by bit. Now, we are EXPECTING a big eruption, at Katla, at Hekla, and there are other volcanoes around the world on the brink as well. All they will do, is make an already bad situation much MUCH worse.

WE ARE ON THE BRINK!

an Ice Age is imminent, and they KNOW it!

...Japanese scientists connect previous eruptions of Mt. Baekdu with major subterranean stresses in the region. For instance, it erupted at least six times between the 14th and 20th centuries, and each time it followed an earthquake in Japan. North Korean volcanologists observed abnormal activity at a lake atop the mountain after the March 2011 9.0-magnitude earthquake in Japan.The Korea Times reported the lake’s water was shaking and splashing, causing a 60-centimetre rise. An eruption is likely to cause severe flooding of the neighboring area within a 30-kilometre radius, causing devastating damage of infrastructure and endangering people’s lives. The volcanic ash could affect air traffic in the Koreas, China, Russia and Japan, disrupting business activities...

Strongly doubt concerning ice age, but as mentioned here a lot times we can expect big events soon with the melting season. VC don't take into account this connection, but also awaiting soon something in Katla region:

Katla: there has been recently several more large and deep earthquakes around Katla. This is the sign I have been expecting since 2010 to be observed a few months before an eruption.

These earthquakes have been occurring now for a couple of weeks. It is the first time since Eyjafjallajokull that the area experiences more than ocasional deep earthquakes, and one of them today was a 2.6 (although with a poor quality). If they sustain for a few months and become larger and more shallow, then an eruption is much more likely than before! Just as it happened with Eyjafjallajokull, for 3 months before its eruption.

And if sudden GPS movements are recorded, that makes an eruption extremely likely (like it did with Eyjafjallajokull), but this has not happened yet, but I also expect it to occur, later (a couple of weeks before the eruption). It’s time to pay a more close attention to Katla.

Today is a sunny day and visibility is good:
draw attention to the large number of thaw at the top of the glacier, in the last year this was not
