Mayor Island
Mayor Is.
Lying 50 km north of Tauranga, Mayor Island is the smallest caldera volcano in New Zealand.


Mayor Island network map.
Mayor Island (Tūhua) is the emergent summit of a caldera volcano roughly 750 m high and 15 km across. The island is dominated by the 3 km wide caldera collapse crater and contains numerous vents. At least 52 eruptions have been recorded from the island over the last 130,000 years.

Most Recent Eruption

When: about 6,300 years ago
Effects: Large amounts of ash fell on the nearby North Island, and large pyroclastic flows entered the sea, almost certainly generating tsunami.

What does GeoNet do?

Seismic Monitoring: 1 seismograph.

Mayor Island

Mayor Island is an infrequently active bush covered volcano sitting quietly in the Bay of Plenty, offshore from Waihi. It is about 4 km in diameter and is dominated by a caldera (collapse crater).

Since activity began, about 130 000 years ago there have been atleast 52 eruptions –a minimum of once every 3000 years. Exact timing of the most recent eruptions is unclear although some lava flows are thought to be about 500 to 1000 years old.

Volcanologists find Mayor Island interesting because it has a very diverse history of eruption styles including fire fountaining, lava domes and very explosive eruptions from contact with water.

Although it is in a dormant state, it is regarded as active and a large eruption could affect the mainland with ash fall as well as a tsunami hazard.

Mayor Island

Country: New Zealand
Subregion Name: New Zealand
Volcano Number: 0401-021
Volcano Type: Shield volcano
Volcano Status: Radiocarbon
Last Known Eruption: 5060 BC ± 200 years
Summit Elevation: 355 m 1,165 feet
Latitude: 37.28°S 37°17'0"S
Longitude: 176.25°E 176°15'0"E

The small 4-km-wide Mayor Island, also known as Tuhua, in the Bay of Plenty is the emergent portion of a 15-km-wide compound peralkaline lava shield constructed between about 120,000 and 35,000 years ago. A 3-km-wide composite caldera was formed in two or three collapse events, the last of which took place about 6300 years ago, and was accompanied by a plinian eruption that produced tephra deposits up to 70 cm thick on mainland North Island. Post-caldera eruptions generated a series of lava domes and flows emplaced from NNE-trending vents within the caldera that have filled it to depths of at least 180 m. The latest eruption of Mayor Island has not been dated, but was considered by Houghton et al. (1992) to perhaps have occurred only 500-1000 years ago.

It just doesnt make any sense....a seismic drum is set to a scale- Ngauruhoe is set to 400 which means it will show up most noise in the area including wind etc...tonight it is extremely windy at Ngauruhoe so as expected it is showing strong wind readings...

[link to img580.imageshack.us]

You can also note how this looks on the RSAM/SSAM...

[link to www.geonet.org.nz] ( very different from Mayors readings )


However, if you were to increase the scale on Ngauruhoe from 400 to the same as Mayor Island, which is currently on scale setting 5000, then the activity would barely register, if at all.

SO why is Mayor Island showing such a HUGE level of activity if it is wind related?...unless its blowing at 1000kms per hour or something.....and at strange frequencies...

I live literally just 2mi away from San Andreas here in SE Cali in the Low Desert. To say that I am concerned here is an understatement.

The very notion that a "National EQ Drill" is being held regardless of the date makes for some major flag raising. To add into the mix the date and numbers does not strike me as coincidence either. Something is definitely afoot. This could be brought down to several logical conclusions: 1.)Science knows something is about to happen on or around said posted date and are not willing to be forthcoming on the truth of things. 2.)A possible "October Surprise?" aka Psyop? 3.) Could we possibly be seeing the use of Seismic Weaponry?

In reference to the latter question, it should be no surprise that such tech exists. HAARP and Weather Mods should be the definitive proof of Man's ability to manipulate Nature. As to the date of the drill, it does not play into Prophecy of any sort that I am aware of. However, there is a level significance that is currently in play. Much is happening on all levels and certain dates are being flagged for particular events of import to come to pass. Case in point in 9 days Germany's Supreme Court will make a potentially historical change to their Constitution in regards to the use of their military against their own people in terms of a civil war. I've heard that the next 90 days here in America will be most defining in terms of not having a November Presidential Election. There is much to add on to what I wish to say here, but the focal point here is the Nat'l EQ Drill. Let me point this out too, I find it ironic that such a "drill" is in the works and yet the majority of folks are not seeing how are military installations are undergoing mass evacuation procedures on the East Coast and pulling back further inland and how the Patriot Anti-Missile Defense platforms are forming "fire-chains" in PA. Follow my train of thought here gang. Everything happens for a reason, even the covert items. To that end, would it be too hard to agree that whatever is going to happen in October could quite possibly be a massive psyops to deflect the people's attention from something much more important. Important on a dire level that the powers that be may not want anyone to know about?
Conspiratorial? Sounds like it, but my yrs of experience from being in the Service and just being a Watcher has told me that what's real and what's not isn't always to figure out. Our world is undergoing massive changes that will no doubt bring about catastrophes, yet at the same time there are active covert elements of the "Elite" that wish to usher about the end of our world as we know and they are in fact getting away with it. Another level of control is happening and capitalizing on a natural disaster to get people to be under their control is just another facet of the big deception.

On the flip side of this, I could be totally wrong and everything I said and this is a legit exercise to get the masses "EQ Aware". It's ultimately up to all of you to decide and do conduct independent research. Cross-examine your research and stand by your guns on the matter. As always, I give respect to all GLPers regardless of opinions because in the final analysis it boils down to SURVIVAL. May common sense prevail in the age of dire uncertainty. I'm out...

Million Kiwis in Earthquake Drill
From ERIC SHACKLE, in Sydney Australia.

At 9.26am on Wednesday, September 26, a million New Zealanders will take part in a unique earthquake drill, Mark Benthien, organiser of The Great ShakeOut predicts.

He says it will be “the first ShakeOut drill held nationwide in any country.” A month later, similar exercises will take place in the US, Canada and southern Italy.


“Official rescue teams who have been dispatched to the scene of earthquakes and other disasters around the world continue to advocate use of the internationally recognised ‘Drop, Cover and Hold On’ protocol to protect lives during earthquakes” says the ShakeOut website.

DROP to the ground (before the earthquake drops you!),
Take COVER by getting under a sturdy desk or table, and
HOLD ON to it until the shaking stops.



“If there isn’t a table or desk near you, drop to the ground in an inside corner of the building and cover your head and neck with your hands and arms. Do not try to run to another room just to get under a table.”

Maori say eruption was NOT a surprise (+video +photos of #ashcloud)

Whanau have told TangataWhenua.com that they have noticed other interesting geothermal activity. Wally Lee a Trustee for the Tuhourangi Maori Authority mentioned that Waikete geyser had “roared” back to life in recent weeks, and that korero from the past suggested that during the 1886 Tarawera eruption, thermal activity too had increased. He said that the raise was attributed to pressure building underground, similar to what they had heard happening at Ketetahi Springs at Tongario.

Geologists have also pointed to disappearing crater lakes, similar to the ocean breathing in minutes before a tsunami as a precursor to volcanic activity.

Te Moananui Rameka a who guides for Pure Ora Walks, the only Maori concession holder, who guide the Crossing and provide cultural interpretations, began seeing tohu around December, he and his team had noticed increased geothermal activity around Ketetahi Springs, including the rapid lowering of the Emerald Lakes and new geysers being born and had passed this information onto others. He felt that this was a tohu, a reminder and sign from both Tongariro and Ruamoko that people should not take the maunga for granted.

Interesting then that GNS scientists say the eruption came as a “total surprise” and that “volcanos” don’t speak to each other, but we’d disagree and whanau believe if they had a more holistic perspective they too would have seen the signs.

What have you seen whanau? Any increased geothermal activity in your area? Email us your story and photos and let us know.

Mauri ora!

An amateur, observational view, with civil defence needs in mind: The obvious stresses, from the two magnitude 7.1 earthquakes south and north of the past two years, are building north and south of the northern end of the Alpine Fault – south of the Blenheim-Wellington line and east of Christchurch respectively. The torsion on this zone – pushed east in the north and west in the south is what creates both our earthquakes and our land. The greater ability for movement of the eastern North Island is what opens up deep crust in its wake, allowing volcanic vents like White Island, Tongariro, and the whole Taupo-Kermadec zone. The New Zealand reality, of its outstanding newness as an above-water dynamic mass. Kia kaha. Kia manawanui. Kia tupato. Ka kite ano. Kia ora.

September 3, 2012 – INDONESIA - Volcanic ash from the increasingly active Anak Krakatau has reached a number of areas in Lampung, prompting officials on Monday to issue a warning for local residents and tourists. “The ash was carried by wind from the southeast to the south, reaching Bandarlampung,” Nurhuda, who heads the observation and information section of the Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) in Lampung, said according to state news agency Antara. Nurhuda said the ash fell over several sub-districts in Bandarlampung, about 130 kilometers away from Anak Krakatau. “It is rather unusual for the dust to be this thick,” said Juniardi, a resident of Bandarlampung who complained that the falling dust was also hampering visibility. Officials warned that the ash posed health hazards and asked local residents to wear masks when going outdoors or driving motorcycles. “We also advise fishermen and tourists not to come within a radius of 3 kilometers of Anak Krakatau. The thick plumes of smoke sent off by Krakatau contain toxic material that is hazardous for your health,” said Andi Suhardi, head of the Anak Krakatau observation post in Hargo Pancuran village. A report from the volcanology office in Bandung shows that the activity of Anak Krakatau has been on the rise over the past few days, reaching almost 90 eruptions per day. Nurhuda said the report showed the volcano spewed red hot lava up to 300 meters above its peak. “More than 100 volcanic quakes and tremors have been recorded,” he added. Anak Krakatau, or child or Krakatau, about 130 kilometers west of Jakarta, was created by the same tectonic forces that led to the 1883 Krakatoa eruption that killed tens of thousands of people. –Jakarta Post

6.4 earthquake strikes Indonesia south of Java

September 3, 2012 – INDONESIA - A powerful 6.4 -magnitude earthquake struck Indonesia off the island of Bali in the wee hours this morning, but no destruction, injuries, or tsunami warnings have been reported so far. The epicenter was 172 miles south of Denpasar at a shallow depth of just 5 miles, AFP reports. Indonesia is located on the so-called “Ring of Fire,” where the clashing of continental plates leads to regular volcanic and seismic events. –Newser

Large explosive eruption reported at Kamchatka’s Bezymianny volcano

September 2, 2012 – KAMCHATKA – A larger explosive eruption occurred at Bezymianny volcano in Kamchatka yesterday evening (1 Sep) around 19h15 GMT. The explosion produced an ash cloud rising to about 10 km altitude (flight level 340) and was first detected by Tokyo VAAC who sent out an ash-cloud aviation warning (major intercontinental routes pass this area). The ash plume is rapidly drifting west and has already reached hundreds of kilometer length. As of today (2 Sep), the eruption of the volcano is gradually finishing, but ash plumes are extending more 370 mi (600 km) to the east-north-east of the volcano. Ongoing activity could affect international and low-flying aircraft. According to seismic data by KB GS RAS, the eruption began at 19:16 UTC on September 01, 2012. According to visual data, ash plumes rose up to 32,800 – 39,400 ft (10-12 km) a.s.l. at 19:30 UTC on September 01. According to seismic data, an explosive phase of eruption continued till 19:45 UTC on September 01, and later there was a volcanic tremor was registered about 2 hours. There is no ash near Bezymianny volcano now, but ash plumes are extending to the east-north-east of the volcano about 550-600 km of the volcano (MTSAT at 2132 UTC on September 01). –Volcano Discovery

tarn,

do you think maybe white island erupted on the weekend, but went unnoticed due to cloud or something?

the graphs seem to be saying it did, and that it is now subsiding, in the same way as the first eruptions..

as you pointed out on your thread, the decibel levels seem to have been altered about this time...

Re: WHAT IS HAPPENING AT WHITE ISLAND VOLCANO??? New Zealand/Kermadec & South Pacific QUAKE/VOLCANO WATCH
this is what tarn noticed, and took screen shots of..

Why the difference between these two images of the RSAM/SSAM plot on White Island...no apparent change in scale but there is clearly a big change in the reported decibel levels..

here is plot from yesterday..

[link to images.trademe.co.nz]

and here is the same plot today..still at scale 20,000 but somehow decibel levels are now showing lower...

Whats that all about Geonet??? Trying to downplay the tremor....?

is activity here increasing again..

ngauruhoe seismo drum (which showed the tongariro activity last time)
[link to www.geonet.org.nz]


The tremor is continuing to climb on White Island again today...looking promising for an eruptive episode.

Also interesting to note....


The two seismic drums in the picture below are located on our Volcanoes Tongariro and Ngauruhoe( which is a vent of Tongariro ). When volcanic activity is happening on Tongariro, Ngauruhoe( Oturere ) drum wil also pick it up. But as you can see by the difference in the earthquake readings from Tongariro the scale is set much higher on Tongariro so its readings look smaller.

They do not however pick up each others weather readings at all. So when its showing windy on Ngauruhoe the Tongariro drum will still look quiet and vice versa.

However, it is quite clear when looking at the two drum illustrations taken from today...there is a tremor of some description showing on both drums.....

[link to imageshack.us]

( i have outlined the areas to compare )...it is definitely not weather related and would be much more interesting to look at if they would reduce the scale on the Tongariro drum to the
same as Ngauruhoe....but it is definitely there and a sign that TOngariro is nowhere near going back to sleep...

hiya tarn

i agree!!
 Quoting: Tauranga

Hi ya!

Was just coming to post this on your thread as well....that tremor is Tongariro is really exciting...shows there some activity going on underneath..
 Quoting: taniatarn


yeah

did you notice there were quite a few quakes showing on the central plateau seismos yesterday..

4. SUBMARINE VOLCANOES NORTH OF WHITE ISLAND

Only about 125 km north-east of the Bay of Plenty coast of the North Island , New Zealand, just beyond the 2000 metres depth contour, lies Whakatane Seamount (Figure 1, 2). Fresh andesite lava has been dredged by DSIR’S Oceanographic Institute from this locality.

Further inshore towards New Zealand, there are numerous seamounts, some of which show signs of recent activity. Of particular interest is Mahina Knoll (Figure 2), about 20 km north-west of White Island, which shows evidence of a recent partial collapse, and has yielded dredge samples of dacite and andesite.

5. SUBMARINE VOLCANOES IN THE NGATORO BASIN AND SOUTH-WEST OF COLVILLE RIDGE

Basaltic lavas, which appear to be very young, have recently been dredged from the eastern slope of the Ngatoro Basin (Figure 2). Little or no sediment covers them, and it is clear that they must have been erupted very recently. The Ngatoro Basin is a tensional feature, possibly a rift structure, and an entirely different tectonic environment to that of the stratovolcanoes to the east.

Finally, north-west of the Ngatoro Basin, at the south-west end of the Colville Ridge (Figure 2) is a group of submarine volcanoes, believed recently active. This group is aligned with Mayor Island, close to the New Zealand coast, which is a dormant volcano that characteristically erupts an unusual variety of rhyolite.

Colville and Kermadec ridges

cool video
[link to www.teara.govt.nz]

The deep, rough seabed between the Colville and Kermadec ridges (north of New Zealand) is known as the Havre Trough. Here the seabed is slowly being pulled apart – the ridges are moving away from each other. The older Colville Ridge has extinct volcanoes, while the younger Kermadec Ridge has many active volcanoes. This video clip shows the shape of several submarine volcanoes, derived from detailed bathymetric surveys.

cool image showing the colville ridge, the havre trough, the kermadec ridge and the kermadec trench in relation to the tauranga area

the 2 bumps in the red area nearest the tauranga coast are white and mayor islands i think
