NZ is active again too: White Island is on aviation Code orange. Here is a screenshot of the drums shown yesterday, with this image you can see how they got stronger.


Today the page is pretty much all blue, almost completely covering the white background of the tremor graphs.

hiya luis

yes, i noticed yesterday that the white island drum had become very dark, with hardly any white showing

this is a big concern, because of the changed state of this volcano; the spiny domes, and what their presence means in relation to this volcano now being capable of producing much more dangerous eruptions to what it has produced in the past

hmmm...

hiya

they have not given warnings about impending volcanic events so far this year

i dont and never will be involved in facebook, but maybe you (or everyone who is concerned about white island) could ask geonet this question on their facebook page..

we give correct warnings on this thread when we see volcanic acvtivity escalating/changing on the nz seismo drums

various posters on this thread have correctly predicted all the recent volcanic activity here in nz

Hundreds of tourists trapped in Fiji, as monster cyclone bears down on South Pacific islands

[link to theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com]

December 16, 2012 – FIJI - Fijian authorities scrambled to evacuate tourists and residents in low-lying areas Sunday as a monster cyclone threatened the Pacific nation with “catastrophic damage” after causing devastation in Samoa. At least four people were killed when Cyclone Evan slammed into Samoa and the toll was expected to rise with a search launched for eight men missing on three fishing boats. Only one survivor has been found, said the New Zealand Rescue Co-ordination Centre, which is overseeing the search. After crossing Samoa, Evan intensified as it ploughed through the Pacific and forecasters said destructive winds could reach nearly 300 kilometers per hour (186 miles per hour) by the time it hits Fiji early Monday. Government officials fear it could be as devastating as Cyclone Kina, which killed 23 people and left thousands homeless in 1993. Squally thunderstorms were expected to flood low-lying areas while coastal villages were at risk of sea flooding, authorities said. The international airport at Nadi was packed as 850 tourists were removed from luxury resorts on outlying islands, “The safety of the tourists was paramount,” said Fiji Tourism and Hotel Association managing director Dixon Seeto, but with most flights booked the holidaymakers had little chance of getting out before the storm. Fiji’s main airline Air Pacific either cancelled or rescheduled its Monday flights while other airlines said they were closely monitoring the situation. Philip Duncan, head analyst with the WeatherWatch.co.nz meteorological service, said Fiji faced the prospect of flash flooding and mudslides. “Gusts may end up climbing to 280 kilometers per hour or greater around the centre of Evan,” Duncan said. “Some small, low-lying communities and resorts may suffer catastrophic damage and some small islands may be entirely submerged as the storm and storm surge roll by.” More than 200 evacuation centers have been opened and Information Ministry permanent secretary Sharon Smith-Johns said people at risk should move. “People living in low-lying areas should consider moving to higher ground or evacuation centres,” she said. Fiji’s military leader Voreqe Bainimarama has warned the storm is an “impending disaster” and offers of international aid have already been received. Australian Foreign Minister Bob Carr said Canberra was offering financial assistance as well as expert personnel and supplies. The cyclone is expected to hit the northern part of Fiji early Monday with strong winds and heavy rain striking several hours earlier, said Nadi Weather Office duty forecaster Amit Singh. “The cyclone is not going to slow down. It is intensifying,” he said. Meanwhile, it could be some days before the full extent of the damage in Samoa is known because of the difficulty reaching outlying islands. About 4,500 people remain in emergency shelters after Evan destroyed houses and damaged electricity and fresh water supplies, Samoan officials said. Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sailele also warned of possible food shortages next year because crops were destroyed. –BI

Last week, Erik drew my attention to this odd spiny lava dome spotted on New Zealand’s White Island. It is rather strikingly weird, like the country that brought us the Lord of the Rings had decided to now bring us The Thing – Volcano Edition.

What makes this especially interesting for me is that I’ve visited White Island: during my PhD, I spent several months doing field work on the North Island, and on one of my days off in 2003 I drove up to Whakatane* in the Bay of Plenty and took one of the boat tours out to the island

Given this is an active volcanic island, you might expect actually landing on it to be a rather intrepid affair. However, things are made considerably easier by the fact that one side of the caldera has been breached (either inward by the sea, or outward by an eruption; I don’t actually know).

Once inside, you are treated to a barren landscape of greys, dusky reds and sulphurous yellows. When we were there, the most active part of the caldera was at the far end from where we landed, where a large, continuous plume of steam was rising from a crater lake. From the wider shot included with Geonet’s bulletin about the lava dome, it looks like this is still the most active area, although it seems to have grown slightly from when I was there.

We were able to get close enough to peek at the lake. At the time, our guides said we were quite lucky to see the level of activity we did, with a lot of bubbling, and churning, and muddy water being hurled tens of feet into the air. This would probably be considered a quiet day nowadays.

A closer look at the caldera floor allows a small glimpse into the history of White Island: there are clearly differentiated layers of volcanic ash that represent different eruptions (or pulses of the same eruption). They are also some much coarser layers which were probably deposited by pyroclastic debris flows

The caldera floor is also dotted with fumaroles emitting volcanic gases. They are easily spotted by the deposits of vivid yellow sulphur precipitated around them.

There were various attempts to mine this sulphur in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Needless to say, this was a dangerous job: in 1914, ten men operating the latest mining operation were killed when their encampment was engulfed by a lahar that accompanied an eruption. The remains of the last sulphur processing plant are close to where the boat tours land: it’s quite an eerie juxtaposition to see the tour parties poking around a place occupied by people who probably would have thought that anyone visiting this place for pleasure was mad.

As I stared out of the volcanic caldera of an active, explosive subduction zone volcano into the ocean beyond, I couldn’t help but feel that perhaps they wouldn’t be entirely wrong. Not that I regret going at all, but it was one of those times when perhaps even I, with more grasp than most of the nature of the risk at places like this than many visitors probably do, let my desire to see for myself over-ride my common sense.

Dr. Jeff Masters' WunderBlog
Category 3 Tropical Cyclone Evan bearing down on Fiji
Posted by: Dr. Jeff Masters, 5:19 PM GMT on December 16, 2012

[link to www.wunderground.com]

Category 3 Tropical Cyclone Evan is closing in on the main island of Fiji, where hurricane warnings are flying and torrential rains are already falling. Radar images from Fiji show that the large eye of Evan is just north of the two main islands of Fiji. The expected southwesterly track of the storm should keep the calm of the eye just north of Fiji, though the southern eyewall may brush the north coast of the main island of Vici Leva, affecting the tourist town of Nadi. Evan has intensified today to its strongest level yet, with 120 mph winds, and satellite loops show that the storm remains well-organized, with plenty of intense heavy thunderstorm activity and a prominent eye. Evan will be in a region with moderate wind shear of 15 - 20 knots as it approaches Fiji, and could intensify by another 5 - 10 mph before making its closest pass to the islands later today. According to NOAA's Coastal Services Center, Evan is the strongest tropical cyclone to threaten Fiji since Tropical Cyclone Daman of December 2007. Dating back to 1972, twelve Category 3 or stronger tropical cyclones have threatened the Republic of Fiji.

Severe damage in Samoa from Evan
Evan made landfall on the north shore of Samoa near the capital of Apia on Thursday as a Category 1 cyclone with 90 mph winds, and intensified into a Category 3 storm with 115 mph after the eye wandered back offshore late Thursday. Media reports indicate that Evan killed four and has left eight missing on Samoa, and left at least 4,000 homeless. The main power plant for Samoa was destroyed, and it is expected that power will be out to almost all of Samoa for at least ten more days. Evan was one of Samoa's most destructive tropical cyclones on record, as discussed by wunderground's weather historian, Christopher C. Burt.

2012: After the Mayan calendar ends, Hollywood destroys the Earth in 2013

[link to theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com]

December 15, 2013 – CINEMA – For people recovering from the hangover of a 2012 Mayan apocalypse, the coming year provides no panacea from the pandemic of fear sweeping the world about doomsday. Perhaps, it also goes with saying that Hollywood is doing very little to ease human phobias about the destruction of the lone blue, habitable planet, at the edge of the galaxy, called Earth. 2013 brings a slew of dystopian and apocalyptic films that sees Earth laid to waste; not once, but over and over again. It appears someone forgot to tell Hollywood the apocalypse was officially canceled by NASA. From an epidemic of shootings and stabbings from Connecticut to China, to a sinkhole of global debt threatening to swallow nations, to the Japanese and U.S. fiscal cliffs threatening the global economy, to a smoldering fiery Arab Spring still burning through nations in the Middle East, Syria on the brink of collapse, increasing seismic quakes strikes along the Ring of Fire, a record number of dormant volcanoes awakening, record unemployed in the EU, and growing tensions in the China Sea; it’s easy to understand why there appears to be so much global psychological fear and anxiety arising from the thickening cloud of apocalyptic gloom settling over the civilized world. Internet sites didn’t create the climate of doom; despite the notions and misgivings of some, and the criticism leveled by others. In 2013, the global mood may grow even darker. Replete with the planet’s mounting problems, is a compendium of planned Hollywood blockbuster films that all suggest Earth’s days are numbered. There is the zombie apocalypse in the movie World War Z, where civilization crumbles and the world is overrun by flesh-eating zombies. If that wasn’t bad enough, the world is eaten by giant monsters from the sea in the film, Pacific Rim. Then there is the film Oblivion, which was adapted from Radical Comics graphic novel Oblivion by Joseph Kosinski. In M. Night Shyamalan (6th Sense) latest film, After Earth, in the distant future, a legendary general (Will Smith) and his 13-year-old son (Jaden Smith) crash-land on a long-abandoned and now dangerous Earth. People say the Mayan calendar, about the world ending on December 21, 2012, is a widely misunderstood interpretation of the facts, regarding the times in which we live…but then again, nobody bothered to cross-reference the Mayan calendar with Hollywood’s. –The Extinction Protocol

Because of the shortness of time that I believe, forgive me for my shameless candor, but...

I love you T!

I'm giving out all my love to my friends and relatives, so don't harbor in your soul selfishly that you're the only one! LOL

But in all seriousness, volcanoes have to release all the energy that comes from this time. It's a mixed bag of blessing and cursing, as I'm sure you're already well-aware, It'll block lots of the harmful radiation in the future (very near) but will have their sure consequences to our frail human bodies nonetheless.

It's my opinion that there will be many who will survive and make babies and continue on. But if not, the remembrance of our dna structure of life will...uhhh...be remembered in the waters of life, so that in any case we shall look to our future in the end and make a glorious comeback eventually without the evil influences of the Rest.

And if I'm wrong and status quo continues EOY and beyond, I'll still pay you a visit unashamed, because of course I'm human and don't know everything! :)

I live and work in Christchurch. I personally take the view that it is not over yet in Canterbury but I have no firm evidence just a gut feel. This article appeared in today's www.stuff.co.nz
