It would appear we now have to put Volcano's into the equation... as if there isnt enough to think about already!!


ALERT LEVEL HEIGHTENED TO WORLD'S DEADLIEST VOLCANO

Dompu - Increased rumblings this month from Mount Tambora on Indonesia’s Sumbawa Island are forcing residents to take the mountain seriously, with authorities there raising the volcano alert to its second-highest level.
“On August 30, we recorded seven volcanic earthquakes and since Sept. 8 the frequency of the quakes rose substantially, to between 12 and 16 per day,” said Husnuddin, head of the West Nusa Tenggara Disaster Mitigation Agency, (BNPB), the Jakarta Globe reports.
Mount Tambora has the distinction of having the world’s deadliest eruption which killed at least 71,000 people, with some estimates as high as 90,000. Between 11,000-12,000 were killed by the eruption itself while tens of thousands more died from the ensuing starvation and disease associated with volcanic fallout which created the “Year Without a Summer” in 1816, a summer which greatly impacted the Northern Hemisphere, including North America and Europe.

I usually go to this guys site for my volcano fix,that picture in your post,that looks like one mean mother,if it is true they are at 3,that means only one more level.
=======================
2011 Unrest
Tambora volcano in Indonesia has been raised to level 2 alert (out of maximum 4) on 30th August 2011 after an increase in volcanic earthquakes. Alert level 3 was issued on 8th September 2011. In April 2011 there were 37 shallow volcanic earthquakes recorded, 167 in May, 277 in June, 363 in July, and 141 from 1-29 August. Continuous tremor was recorded on 29 and 30 August. Tourists and locals are advised to avoid the summit area of Tambora volcano.

Thanks Breezy.  When I closed my eyes in bed last night (in Oz) I saw a volcano erupting.  No lava just a huge cloud above it.  Your post confirms what I saw, thanks.

Iceland’s Katla volcano rattled by double swarm of tremors

"October 27, 2011 – ICELAND – Iceland’s Katla volcano was hit by two swarms of tremors today. The strongest of the first cluster of small harmonic tremors which rattled the glacier was of a 2.9 magnitude. A second, more intense swarm of tremors erupted shortly thereafter; including two 3.0 magnitude tremors- one inside the caldera of the volcano and one erupted on the parameter under the Mýrdalsjökull glacier.

Explosive: three columns of steam and ash rise 4.8 km from Chile’s Hudson volcano

"October 28, 2011 –  SANTIAGO, Chile –  Chile’s Hudson Volcano released three huge columns of steam and ash that combined in a cloud more than 3 miles high on Friday, threatening a much larger eruption that had authorities in Chile and Argentina on red alert. Chilean officials evacuated 119 people from the immediate area, and other nearby residents prepared to flee as melting snow and ice caused the Aysen river to overflow its banks.

Expect larva soon.  If you see a small larva pressure release flow coming down one side of a volcano, it is a sign to expect a large explosion/collapse on the opposite side a short time later - maybe November but timing is always difficult.  Also once the atmospheric cloud (caused by elenin or whatever else is doing it) passes by expect extreme cold in many areas all over the world, even those areas that have not been used to extreme cold in the past. As always, I could be wrong  :-\

The Home at the Top of a Volcano

curbvolc_ext1_v2.jpg

This curvaceous home with 360 degree views, on a Southern Calif. volcano, is yours for $750,000.

Photo: Curbed

"It's not every day one stumbles across a UFO, never mind one you can live in, and certainly never mind one plopped firmly atop a volcano—er, volcanic cinder cone, to be precise. But lo' and behold this curious desert dwelling located between Vegas and Los Angeles in Newberry Springs, Calif. popped up on our radar screen"

snip

curbvolc_exthouse_v2.jpg

This home design was inspired by a nuclear power plant.

"The property now belongs to local semi-celebrity Huell Howser, who has hosted California's Gold, a travel show on the Los Angeles radio station KCET, for the past 20 years. Howser listed the property in September 2009, at which point Curbed LA described it as a "secret hideout where you watch your dastardly plans unfold on flat screens and cackle at your minions."

Pictures: 7 Volcanoes Erupting Right Now

03-nyamulagira-volcano-virunga-national-park_43704_600x450.jpg

"Erupting volcanoes—such as the Democratic Republic of the Congo's Nyamulagira, pictured earlier this month—can be destructive, frightening, and beautiful. And right now there are at least seven you can see in action now, if you act fast.

When Nyamulagira, Africa's most active volcano, began shooting 65-story fountains of lava weeks ago, officials at Virunga National Park, which contains the 10,032-foot (3,058-meter) peak, struck while the tourism opportunity was hot, setting up guided tours to a tent site within a mile (1.6 kilometers) of the erupting vent.

(Get the full story of the volcano-camp setup, in pictures.)

Seimic unrest continues to build at Iceland’s Katla volcano

"December 2, 2011 – ICELAND – A huge Icelandic volcano long overdue an eruption is showing signs of activity – threatening disruption to air traffic, experts have said. There have been more than 500 tremors at Katla in the south of the country in just the last month. An increase in activity at the site since July has also been causing volcanologists concern, when increasing temperatures and seismic activity caused a flood, washing away a road bridge.

hehe, funny seeing this on Chani

When an eruption at the size that is talked about here the whole planet suffers from it.

For example the French revolution is by some said to be indirectly caused by an volcanic eruption in Iceland.

One of these huge eruptions caused no summer to come in Europe for up to 5 years. No harvest at all for years.

2009 there was an eruption (big but nothing compared to what can come). The winter 2009-2010 in South Norway was very hard.

2010 there was an eruption (big but nothing compared to what can come). The winter 2010-2011 in South Norway was very hard.

2011 there was NO eruption. The winter in South Norway now is quite mild.

I read Icelandic news almost daily. There has been more activity(earthquakes) recently. But that does not mean an eruption. Everything was very still and quiet before the two most recent ones.

In fact Iceland is shakeing constantly. I have experienced two quakes there over 6,5 my self.

But it didnt effect the society that much. Not a single building collapsed. They are all built like bomb shelters compared to some places in the world.

If I read something interesting I will let you know/keep you updated if you are interested.

And if you have some questions I will gladly help you out if I can.

All my best

Liquid Light Show

"Ecuador's Tungurahua volcano (satellite map) puts on a spectacular show, as seen from the town of Juive Grande last Monday. The volcano has been erupting intermittently since 1999, but it only recently roared back into a very active phase."

snip

Tungurahua "certainly ranks as one of the volcanoes that keeps people up at night," said Smithsonian Institution volcanologist Richard Wunderman, managing editor of the Bulletin of the Global Volcanism Network. "It's scary."

Volcanos Slide Silently To Their Death

6a00d8341bf67c53ef015438414aa5970c-800wi

East of Fiji, between Tonga and Samoa is a feisty, earthquake-prone fault zone called the Tonga Trench. Earthquakes and resulting tsunamis are a concern here, just as they are along the Japan Trench and the even deeper Mariana Trench to the south near Guam.

"A whopping 10.9 kilometers deep in some areas, the Tonga Trench is the second-deepest submarine canyon in the world. It marks the boundary where a westward-moving chunk of the earth’s outer crust, the Pacific plate, is forced downward, beneath the adjacent Indo-Australian plate, along a tectonic subduction zone."

snip

"Last week at the annual fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union, they shared with journalists a stunning visual analysis of volcanoes now on the verge of entering the trench. And here's what they found:

Dozens of giant, flat-topped old volcanoes, called the Louisville Ridge Seamounts, ride westward atop the Pacific tectonic plate at up to six centimeters per year. When they reach the trench, they start getting dragged down into the chasm. According to the old assumption, the chunky volcanoes would add friction to the movement of the two plates, leading to a greater build-up of strain and, consequently, to more violent earthquakes in that spot.

Mt. Lokon Volcano in Indonesia Erupts.

lokon01.jpg

Mount Lokon erupts as seen from Tomohon, North Sulawesi, Indonesia, in July this year. img1.blogblog.com

'The first eruption at Mount Lokon was at 3:07 am (1907 GMT Monday), followed by two more bursts within minutes, Farid Bina told AFP from a monitoring post near the volcano on Sulawesi island. “The eruption was heard as far as five kilometres (three miles) away, causing panic among villagers living close to the volcano,” he said, adding that winds blew volcanic ash to villages up to five kilometres to the east and northeast. “Two villages with about 10,000 people each have been affected by the ash, which stopped later in the morning,” he added"

More than 30,000 people live near the volcano, according to the local government.  pic 1.bp.blogspot.com

More than 5,200 people were evacuated to temporary shelters when the 1,580-metre volcano erupted in July, sending huge clouds of ash as high as 3,500 metres (11,500 feet) into the sky. Lokon’s last deadly eruption was in 1991, killing a Swiss tourist. The Indonesian archipelago has dozens of active volcanoes and straddles major tectonic fault lines known as the “Ring of Fire” between the Pacific and Indian oceans. The country’s most active volcano, Mount Merapi in central Java, killed more than 350 people in a series of violent eruptions last year. - Jakarta Globe.

Deep-sea creatures at volcanic vent

DEC 27, 2011

Rebecca Morelle

Science reporter, BBC News

"Remarkable images of life from one of the most inhospitable spots in the ocean have been captured by scientists.

Researchers have been surveying volcanic underwater vents - sometimes called black smokers - in the South West Indian Ridge in the Indian Ocean.

The UK team found an array of creatures living in the super-heated waters, including yeti crabs, scaly-foot snails and sea cucumbers.

They believe some of the species may be new to science.

Hydrothermal vents were first discovered in 1977. These fissures in the ocean floor spew out fiercely hot, mineral-rich water, yet somehow, diverse ecosystems are able to thrive in these hostile conditions"

_57455205_ventcreature_scalyfootsnail.jpg

The team used an underwater robot to find creatures, such as this scaly-foot snail, around the vents in the Indian Ocean

pic David Shale

_57455206_ventcreature_seacucumber.jpg

Species such as this sea cucumber are not found in neighbouring ridge systems  pic David Shale

"The team, from the University of Southampton, was particularly interested in the vents on the South West Indian Ridge because this range is linked to the Mid Atlantic Ridge and the Central Indian Ridge, where vent life has been well documented."

snip

Prof Jon Copley, chief scientist of the Indian Ocean vents project, said: "This place is a real crossroads in terms of the vent species around the world."

snip

"China has been granted an exploratory licence by the International Seabed Authority to explore the potential of mining the vents in this area for their rich minerals.

Prof Copley said: "This vent field is the size of a few football pitches, and it seems possible that it is the only known range of some of these species.

"It would be very premature to start disrupting it before we really know the true extent of what lives in it."

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-16267625

SO CHINA  has been GRANTED EXPLORATORY LICENSE BY THE INTERNATIONAL SEABED AUTHORITY...TO EXPLORE THE POTENTIAL OF MINING THE VENTS FOR RICH MINERALS????

Hundreds of people flee as lava and mud stream from volcano, killing 4 in eastern Indonesia

Dec 27, 2011

"TERNATE, Indonesia — Officials say mudflows streaming from a volcano in eastern Indonesia have killed four villagers and about 1,000 others have fled their homes.

Mount Gamalama in the Molucca Islands sprang to life this month with a powerful, non-fatal eruption."

However the people died or were injured because of heavy rains and mudslides coming from the volcano...not because of the eruption itself....only reason I posted this is because it is note of another volcano erupting in Indonesia...

Iceland's super-volcano threatens to erupt

Volcanic eruptions in Iceland are capable of affecting air traffic across Europe, as the Eyjafjallajokull volcano showed by grounding flights for a week in 2010.

Now, recent tremors around the much larger Katla volcano indicate that it may be nearing eruption as well. Experts are concerned that such an event could bring global travel disruptions and flooding from melted glaciers.

Al Jazeera's Barnaby Phillips reports from southern Iceland.
