IS A SUPER VOLCANO JUST 390 MILES FROM LONDON ABOUT TO ERUPT????

article-2081219-0F51A2F600000578-891_634x357.jpg

"January 2, 2012 – GERMANY – A sleeping super-volcano in Germany is showing worrying signs of waking up. It’s lurking just 390 miles away underneath the tranquil Laacher See Lake near Bonn and is capable of ejecting billions of tons of magma. This monster erupts every 10 to 12,000 years and last went off 12,900 years ago, so it could blow at any time. The Laacher See volcano is similar in size to Mount Pinatubo, which caused a 0.5C drop in global temperatures when it erupted in 1991. It covered 620 square miles of land with ash and rocks and several small earthquakes in the region last year indicate that it could be awakening from its deep sleep. Experts believe that if it did go off, it could lead to widespread devastation, mass evacuations and even short-term global cooling from the resulting ash cloud blocking the Sun. The effect on the UK is hard to predict but it’s possible that large parts of southern England could be covered ash. It’s thought that the volcano is similar in size and power to Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines, which blew in 1991 and became the biggest eruption of the 20th century. It ejected 10 billion tons of magma, 20 billion tons of sulphur dioxide 16 cubic kilometres of ash and caused a 0.5C drop in global temperatures. Volcanologists believe that the Laacher See volcano is still active as carbon dioxide is bubbling up to the lake’s surface, which indicates that the magma chamber below is ‘degassing.’ "

Increased seismic activity seen at dangerous Santorini caldera

4_26.jpg

January 2, 2012 – GREECE - The seismic unrest beneath Santorini which had started in July 2011 continues into 2012, greeting the world with a small swarm of quakes beneath the caldera. The slightly increased number of quakes is concentrated on the volcano-tectonic Kameni line, which stretches SW-NE through the caldera and extends outside, especially to the NE where the submarine volcano Kolumbo is located 8 km off the coast. The alignment defines a tectonic graben structure underlying Santorini and has been used for rising magma for nearly all past eruptions of the volcano.  –Volcano Discovery

As some of you know, i have been monitoring the Iceland volcano Katla through the articles and web-cam 24/7.

http://www.katla-volcano.co.uk/katla-webcam.php

The Tremors are increasing on a daily bases.

Tremors in the earth have been reported by Al Jazeera’s Barnaby Phillips around Iceland’s Katla volcano which have started to make some experts believe that the colossal volcano is nearing eruption which could potentially disrupt air travel in many parts of the world as well as produce floods in Iceland due to the melting of the Mýrdalsjökull glacier under which the volcano sits.

While the North Island is drowning under huge rainfall we at the bottom of the South Island are in drought.Autumn sown grain is doing ok, but spring sown grain is failing. No winter feed is being made as there is no grass to spare to make it. At this time of the year hubby is normally gone 12-16 hours a day helping a friend who runs a contracting business doing hay, baleage,straw etc. This year we are about to install irrigation so our winter crops dont fail. They tell us we will have no significant rain for another 3 months. The cracks in the ground go down 2 feet. Much hotter/dryer and we will have to start worrying about fire hazards.

I live in Australia, but I come from your area and have a brother with a sheep property near Otautau. He was telling me the other day he is quite concerned about the drought. It is certainly a weird occurrence for that part of the world.

Smoke erupts from crater of Costa Rica’s Turrialba Volcano

"January 13, 2012 – COSTA RICA – The emanation of a gray cloud, possibly containing ash, at the Turrialba Volcano was confirmed Thursday afternoon by the Observatorio Vulcanológico y Sismológico de CostaRica (OVSICORI), that resulting in the closure of the park. The eruption of smoke was confirmed at 3pm Thursday, preceded by rumblings that were detected by locals and confirmed by the OSVICORI. Almost immediately the Comisión Nacional de Emergencias (CNE) – national Emergency Commission – issued a “yellow” alert for the area as a preventive measure. The alert takes in the areas of Turrialba, Jiménez and Alvarado. For the areas Oreamuno and Cartago, the alert is at “green,” according to Vanessa Rosales, president of the CNE. Experts will be meeting today to discuss the risk and review technical reports to determine possible preventive measures. –Inside Costa Rica"

So then didn't we hear that Costa Rica was hearing some strange sounds just  yesterday?  Wonder if it's related to this volcano going off...??

Strange Sound Heard Throughout Costa Rica

"Is it the mysterious sound of the so-called coming Apocalypse? Some think that the mysterious sound heard in Costa Rica at around 12:30am this morning is exactly that."

"It is important to note that this is not the wind nor was it filmed anywhere near the ocean. The sound was heard throughout the entire country from Heredia to Perez Zeledon"

Like I say within 24 to 48 hours of the Earth having a seismic shake we have volcanic activity.....

Basically I think this is a period of awakening for the Earth as well as the surface infestation called humans... lol

Oh and the Sun is in on the act as well it would seem.

Increased activity at the Cerro Machin Volcano in Columbia

"A slight increase in seismic activity on January 15 between 3:30 and 4:30 local time at the Cerro Machin volcano in Colombia. These seismic events were located in the main dome and the south-east of it, at depths ranging between 2 and 12 km."

Guatemala Volcano updates....1/19/12

Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update: continuing moderate ash explosions

"Fuego volcano produced explosions observed on 11-13 and on 16 January, which produced ash plumes rising 400-1000 m above the crater. Shock waves and rumbling sounds accompanied the explosions and rattled windows and roofs in nearby villages.

Santiaguito volcano (Guatemala) activity update: sporadic explosions, continuing lava dome growth, small lava flow on SE flank

"The lava dome growth of Santiaguito continues at moderate levels. Sporadic explosions produce ash clouds that rise up to 600-800 m above the lava dome and mostly drift SW. A viscous lava flow is active on the SE flank. Block avalanches are generated from the front of the lava flow and on the SW flank, accompanied by rumbling noises."

Death Valley's 800-Year-Old Volcano --Is It Primed for a Sequel?

6a00d8341bf7f753ef016300054e76970d-800widaily galaxy

"Death Valley's half-mile-wide Ubehebe Crater turns out to have been created 800 years ago -- far more recently than generally thought. Credit: Brent Goehring/Lamont-Doherty Earth ObservatoryIn California's Death Valley, death is looking just a bit closer. Geologists have determined that the half-mile-wide Ubehebe Crater, formed by a prehistoric volcanic explosion, was created far more recently than previously thought—and that conditions for a sequel may exist today."

snip

"Now, a team based at Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory has used isotopes in rocks blown out of the crater to show that it formed just 800 years ago, around the year 1200. That geologic youth means it probably still has some vigor; moreover, the scientists think there is still enough groundwater and magma around for another eventual reaction."

Big volcanoes wake up fast

Crystal chemistry suggests magma changes quickly before a huge eruption

Long-slumbering volcanoes can jolt to life faster than students drinking Red Bull, a new study suggests.

Big_Eruptions

As seen from space, the caldera of Santorini, Greece, appears as several islands surrounding the now-drowned center blasted out in a mammoth eruption around 1600 B.C. New research suggests this Bronze Age supereruption was preceded by rapid changes in the volcano’s magma. Credit: NASA/EOS

Studies of millennia-old rocks that erupted at Santorini, Greece, show that the chemical composition of its magma changed just a few decades before the volcano blew its top around 1600 B.C. That blast came after 18,000 years of relative calm.

“All this happens at a very late stage relative to this long period of repose,” says Tim Druitt, a volcanologist at the Blaise Pascal University in Clermont-Ferrand, France. “There’s kind of a rapid wake up.”

Druitt and his colleagues describe the awakening in the Feb. 2 Nature.

Santorini’s Bronze Age eruption is one of the most famous in history. When the volcano blew, it sent a tsunami racing across the eastern Mediterranean that wiped out dozens of coastal towns. So much magma erupted that Santorini collapsed to form a lagoon. (Some scientists argue this is the source of the legend of Atlantis.) What was left of the volcano’s caldera forms the islands surrounding the lagoon, which is now dotted by a small peak created by more recent volcanic activity

Continued Volcanic Rumblings from Pagan in the Mariana Islands

By Erik Klemetti Email Author February 6, 2012

Pagan.jpgwiredimg

Pagan Island seen on January 11, 2007, with a small ash plume. North and South Pagan are labelled, along with the caldera rims for both modern composite volcanoes.

"When I was posting a few weeks ago about volcano observatories, focusing on US observatories because of HVO’s 100th anniversary, I pondered what to do about the northern Mariana Islands. The Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) are a protectorate of the United States and as such, the volcanoes in this active arc in the Pacific Ocean are under the watch of the USGS. However, they don’t really fall under any specific observatory (see update below), but rather the lonely “USGS Northern Marianas Duty Scientist”.

Mt Cameroon volcano - possible new eruption reported

Feb 7, 2012

"Mt Cameroon volcano in Cameroon seems to have started a new eruption. According to local news, mild tremors and explosions were noted at the volcano during the past week, intensifying last Friday. A group of tourists is reported to have fled the volcano after they heard loud explosions, followed by earthquakes.

"We heard a heavy explosion followed by some earth vibrations. It lasted about 7 seconds. There were flames and sulphuric acid coming out of a spot where we found ash and we decided to go back down," Peter Linonge Buma, a guide accompanying the tourists is quoted in a news article.

The last eruptions of Mt Cameroon volcano were in March 1999 and May 2000."
