    An increase in seismic activity at Pavlof Volcano, which erupted spectacularly in March, has prompted Alaska Volcano Observatory staff to step up monitoring of the Alaska Peninsula volcano.

    In a brief update Friday, raising Pavlof’s alert level to watch and its aviation color code to orange, staff at the observatory said they haven’t been able to visually confirm any eruption from satellite data or camera images, due to clouds obscuring the volcano.


    “At about 10:35 a.m. (Alaska time) seismic activity at Pavlof Volcano increased to levels typically associated with low-level eruptive activity and it is possible that an eruption of Pavlof Volcano may be in progress,” AVO staff wrote.

    AVO spokesman Dave Schneider said that the seismic activity that led to Friday’s notice for Pavlof has been increasing in intensity, although there’s still no confirmation that “anything is coming out of the volcano.”


    “As it was starting to trend up over the last several hours, we thought it prudent to increase our alert level,” Schneider said. “This is what the beginning of an eruption looks like.”


    In March, Pavlof sent up a 37,000-foot ash cloud that covered nearby Nelson Lagoon, also affecting aviation across Interior Alaska as the cloud was carried east on prevailing winds.
    Last week, Cleveland Volcano in the eastern Aleutian Islands also saw increased activity levels after what AVO called an explosion at that site.

    Costa Rican capitol affected by strong eruption of Turrialba Volcano

    Posted on May 13, 2016

    by The Extinction Protocol

    May 2016 – COSTA RICA – The strong eruption by volcano Turrialba at the 01:19 local time affected a great part of the Costa Rican capital, which got up Thursday covered by a thin layer of ashes. Television stations transmitted images of the exact moment of the explosion, with a column of smoke and ashes, gases and other materials. The Turrialba is 3,340 meters high, the 2nd highest in Costa Rica after the Irazu volcano, with 3,432 meters, and the experts stated that after this eruption, which lasted 11 minutes, the volcano went back to its passive state.


    Most of the affectations were located in the Central Valley, particularly San Jose, the capital, and the smell at sulfur was still present, just as ashes in the air. Though the majority said that till now they have not presented any difficulty for this exhalation of the colossus, specialists recommend the asthmatic people and persons who suffer lung diseases to avoid to inhale the air impregnated with these gases. Specialists of the Volcano and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica talk about the perception of tremors of low intensity in the entrails of the Turrialba, that on Thursday, April 28th increased its eruptive activity.


    This increase in its emanations forced the National Commission of Emergencies (CNE) to adopt a series of measures, as the suspension of classes and the extension of the yellow alert from two to five kilometers in the surroundings of the Turrialba. For the experts, the eruption of this dawn is comparable with the ones reported in October, 2014 and March 2015, when the hill presented strong eruptions. What calls the attention is that after the emanations of last days, the volcano diminished its emanations and the CNE decided to raise the adopted measures.


    This way, the Department of Public Education announced that today the educational personnel and the student population of the schools of the region will take again the normal development of the school cycle. Still it is not known if these educational centers resumed the classes, though the certain thing is that in this eruption the affected zone is different to the one that forced CNE to implement the above-mentioned measures. –Prensa Latina

    Scientists monitoring Mt Ruapehu after volcano displays signs of elevated activity

    Posted on May 9, 2016by The Extinction Protocol

    May 2016 – NEW ZEALAND – An aerial observation was being conducted over Mt Ruapehu yesterday after temperatures in the active volcano’s bubbling Crater Lake rose to the hottest on record. On Saturday, a tourist flight over the Crater Lake observed “vigorous steaming” at the lake and disturbance of the surface itself with “upwelling bubbles.” This sort of activity had not been seen in years while Crown research institute GNS Science said a temperature of 44C was “the hottest lake temperature we have recorded since the new lake was established post-2000.” A flurry of volcanic earthquakes reported on Tuesday had now stopped. However, the seismic network at Ruapehu continues to record volcanic tremors.


    GNS volcanologist Brad Scott had been closely monitoring activity overnight on Saturday and said there had been only more tremor and an insignificant change in lake temperature of around 0.3 of a degree. “There has been little or no change from yesterday – activity has been dominated by volcanic tremors with no distinct or individual volcanic earthquakes.” But the elevated temperatures did not necessarily mean an eruption was imminent. “In fact, if you track back through the record, sometimes it has erupted from cold lake temperatures. This is what makes it difficult for us, as there’s no fixed pattern. In the end, it’s an active volcano and we should always pay respect to it.”


    The developments weren’t enough to upgrade Mt Ruapehu’s volcanic alert level, which remained at 1. The last time it erupted was on September 25, 2007, causing a 7 minute earthquake, two lahars and flying rocks – one of which crushed the leg of primary school teacher William Pike when it landed on Dome Shelter near the crater. Since then, there have been warnings in 2008, 2011, 2012 and this year – none of which resulted in another major event. Meanwhile, unrest was continuing at the volcano at White Island, where a minor eruption occurred last month. While there hadn’t been another event as large, Mr Scott said, small geysering at the crater and a series of volcanic earthquakes indicated there was still “significant unrest” at the offshore volcano in the Bay of Plenty.  –New Zealand Herald

    Earthquake swarms a warning sign Mount St. Helens Volcano is recharging, USGS Says

    Posted on May 7, 2016by The Extinction Protocol

    May 2016 – WASHINGTON – Scientists have detected a swarm of low-magnitude earthquakes beneath Mount St. Helens since last month, an occurrence that has researchers believing it’s recharging its batteries for another eruption.  According to the US Geological Survey (USGS), since March 14, there have been more than 130 earthquakes detected by the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network. There have also been many more quakes that were too small to find.


    The tremors mainly had low magnitudes of 0.5 or less, with the largest clocking in at 1.3. The rates of earthquakes have been steadily climbing, reaching almost 40 quakes per week. The good news is, all of these occur at a depth between 1.2 to 4 miles below Earth’s surface and are too small to be felt above ground. With all the rattling being done under our feet, the Washington volcano still appears to be silent.
    In order to understand what exactly volcanoes do in this time of repose, you have to “look at the evidence of changes in the magmatic system recorded in the crystals that are brought up during an eruption,” Denison University assistant professor of geosciences Erik Klemetti writes for Wired. Viewing these records shows intrusions of new magma occurring frequently, even when the volcanic system might not erupt for 100,000 years, Wired also reports.


    The quakes underneath Mount St. Helens are volcano-tectonic in nature, which indicates a slip on a small fault, according to USGS. These usually take place in active an hydrothermal and magmatic system, which means it’s surrounded by hot gasses, hot water and, of course, magma. As the volcano slowly recharges, the magma chamber is likely imparting its own stresses on the Earth’s crust around and above it. This stress pushes fluid through cracks, which creates the small tremors.


    Though the idea of Mount St. Helens doing some kind of volcanic boxer shuffle to prepare for another eruption is worrisome, scientists say that this doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to blow anytime soon. “The current pattern of seismicity is similar to swarms seen at Mount St. Helens in 2013 and 2014; recharge swarms in the 1990s had much higher earthquake rates and energy release,” states USGS. “No anomalies games, increases in ground inflation or shallow seismicity have been detected with this swarm, and there are no signs of an imminent eruption.”


    Between 1987 and 2004, researchers observing Mount St. Helens noted that recharge can go on for many years under a volcano without an explosion. However, this means that the currently brewing magma is likely stopping to crystallize and interact with residue from previous eruptions as it works its way towards the surface , according to Wired. While a big recharge event is crucial for the system to get ready for the next eruption, researchers continue to question what it’ll be that pulls the trigger. –Weather

    Hell opens? Costa Rica volcano erupts, spewing ash, column of smoke


    Featuring thick clouds of ash and smoke rising into the grey sky, spectacular images of the powerful Costa Rica volcano eruption have flooded social media.
    The 3,340-meter Turrialba Volcano is located in Cartago Province of central Costa Rica, only 30 km from the country’s capital, San José. The volcanic activity started Wednesday and the first eruptions were recorded Friday, according to local media.

    “It seems to me to be the strongest [Turrialba] eruption in the past six years,” volcanologist Gino Gonzalez told AFP. He added that the wind was blowing the smoke and ash westward, toward the most populated areas of the country.

    According to the local Tico Times newspaper, the volcano was spewing ash up to 3 kilometers into the air. The paper added that the eruptions turned the sky completely gray, and the ground temperature dropped a few degrees.

    Apocalyptic scenes in Indonesia as deadly volcano erupts, spewing hot ash, killing 7 (VIDEO,PHOTOS)
    Published time: 22 May, 2016 





    Choking plumes of hot ash, thick smoke and torrents of lava - such apocalyptic scenes could be witnessed in Indonesia as Mount Sinabung struck, killing at least seven people. Social media has been flooded with photos and videos of the devastating volcano rumbling to life. The 2,460-meter-high Sinabung, one of 127 active volcanoes in Indonesia, has been erupting since Saturday.  All victims were found in the village of Gamber in close proximity to the volcano, National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said in a statement. The people were working on their farms when they were killed. “Nine people were struck by the hot clouds,” Nugroho said. Six farmers died on the spot, and the seventh died in the hospital, while the other two are in critical condition, he added. The Gamber village, located about 4 kilometers away from the slope, is considered to be one of the red zones, which means its inhabitants are in danger if the volcano erupts.According to the BNPB, the volcano spewed volcanic ash up to 3 kilometers high into the sky and tumbled the ash as far as 4.5 kilometers westwards into the near-by river. Mount Sinabung is prone to seismic upheaval as it rests on the so-called Ring of Fire encircling the Pacific Ocean. It had been quiet for around 400 years until it rumbled back to life in 2010, and then again in the fall of 2013. The 2014 eruption killed 16 people, including several children.

    After 36,000 years, a massive volcano near Rome rumbles to life

    Posted on July 16, 2016by The Extinction Protocol


    July 2016 – ROME, Italy – The country of Italy, home to one of the most famous volcanic disasters in history, is showing signs that another massive eruption is brewing, according to a new study published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters. Almost 2,000 years after the burial of Pompeii and nearby Herculaneum during the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D., an ancient volcano near Rome is rumbling to life, say scientists. About 19 miles away from the heart of Rome, an ancient volcanic district called the Colli Albani is stirring. The Colli Albani, a 9-mile-long semicircle of hills on the outskirts of Rome, last erupted 36,000 years ago, so geologists had classified it as extinct – until about 20 years ago.
    In the early 1990s, the area around the Colli Albani Volcanic District began showing geological indicators of a future explosion: ground levels shifted, steam vents opened, and earthquakes shook the hills around the site. Since that time, scientists have used these symptoms, along with satellite data and information about the volcano’s previous eruptions, to evaluate the risk that the Colli Albani poses to the surrounding region.
    The increase in earthquakes (many of which occurred during an “earthquake swarm” between 1991 and 1995) and ground level changes in the region indicate the presence of a magma bubble forming beneath the earth near Colli Albani, pushing upwards until it can erupt. Using historical data, researchers determined that Colli Albani is not extinct, as was long believed – it merely operates on a 31,000-year cycle of dormancy and wakefulness. And when the volcano is awake, scientists say, it is dangerous.
    Over the last 200,000 years, scientists say that the region surrounding the Colli Albani has risen by 164 feet, and it continues to rise by nearly an inch per year, indicating that the magma bubble is still growing. For thousands of years, the magma bubble has been trapped by pieces of land that have now begun sliding against each other. If those pieces shift enough, Colli Albani will erupt.
    When conditions are right (or, from a human perspective, terribly, terribly wrong), Colli Albani can produce eruptions similar to the one that destroyed Pompeii and Herculaneum in 79 AD. Like Vesuvius, Colli Albani could erupt with a towering cloud of burning ash and showers of heated “lava bombs” that could damage or destroy nearby towns. Past eruptions have also seen swift streams of lava, scientists say, where Roman suburbs now cluster. A future eruption could devastate them. Rome itself would be safe from such an eruption in all but the very worst of circumstances. If the wind is blowing in the right direction, it could steer an ash cloud from Colli Albani towards the heart of the city.

    The good news, according to researchers, is that time is on Rome’s side. The study’s lead author, Fabrizio Marra, a volcanologist at the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology in Rome, told the American Geological Union that he does not expect the Colli Albani to erupt for another 1,000 years. “We expect for sure some initial stages which may not be so explosive,” said Dr. Marra, “but it may evolve in time.”  –Christian Science Monitor

    [size=16](CNN)The Big Island of Hawaii is getting a little bigger as lava from the Kilauea Volcano flows into the Pacific Ocean.
    The 6.5 mile-long lava flow has been dribbling down the south flank of Kilauea since May, according to the U.S. Geological Survey Hawaiian Volcano Observatory. It reached the ocean on Tuesday morning.

    The USGS said the flow is about 20 meters (66 feet) wide where it spills over the cliff into the sea.
    The red-hot lava creates huge plumes of steam as it hits the water and begins cooling into rock, delighting locals and eager tourists.
    Kilauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes, is part of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

    Kanoa Jones has a full-time job as a mechanic and welder, but has taken a leave of absence to run lava boat tours. 
    He's gotten a permit for his company and has been captaining his brother's boat, while he puts the finishing touches on his own vessel.
    "There's been people calling for a month now, trying to get in the boat," Jones said. He plans to start doing sunrise and sunset tours on Monday.
    Most days, Jones said, you could probably sail right up to the lava, but he keeps a safe distance.
    "Sometimes, if the lava's flowing heavy when it hits the water it could explode, but usually it's really mellow," he said adding that you can still feel the heat on the boat.
    David Ford rode near the lava flow in a different boat and said he could smell sulfur and hear a sizzle when the lava hit the water.
    "I have never seen an ocean entry from the ocean, and it was really cool to see from that angle, lower than a helicopter, and no cliff in the way as would happen if viewing from land," Ford said.

    Volcano erupts in southern Japan
    By Mari Yamaguchi, Associated Press
    October 7, 2016
    Mount Aso in southern Japan has sent huge plumes of grey smoke 11 kilometres into the air in one of the volcano's biggest explosions in years.

    The Japan Meteorological Agency says the eruption in the early hours of Saturday also blew off bits of volcanic rock and ash and raised an alert level for the area, extending the entry ban from just around the volcanic mouth to the mountain itself.

    Footage on Japan's NHK public television showed orange flames flickering from several locations on the mountaintop as the volcano emitted thick smoke billowing into the sky.

    There are no homes within the off-limit area and no injuries or major damage have been reported in nearby towns, though buildings and cars were covered with thick ash falls. Flights were not affected.

    The area is still recovering from deadly earthquakes in April.

    Mount Aso has experienced repeated smaller eruptions in recent years but it is not known if the two scenarios are related.

    Japan sits atop the Pacific "ring of fire'' and has more than 100 volcanoes.
