Volcano Season Update:
We have been following the increased uptick in volcanism worldwide for the past 6 months.
The recent activity in Japan, South America, Iceland, Hawaii, and the new activity on the California/Nevada border has us very concerned.#Yellowstone continues to be an ongoing threat...
|Recent Earthquakes in Yellowstone National Park|
As our previous post on Volcanism, we are watching Dormant and Extinct volcano systems worldwide show a Dramatic increase in activity.
An example of the possible distribution of ash from a month-long Yellowstone supereruption. The distribution map was generated by a new model developed by the U.S. Geological Survey using wind information from January 2001. The improved computer model, detailed in a new study published in Geochemistry, Geophysics, Geosystems, finds that the hypothetical, large eruption would create a distinctive kind of ash cloud known as an umbrella, which expands evenly in all directions, sending ash across North America. Ash distribution will vary depending on cloud height, eruption duration, diameter of volcanic particles in the cloud, and wind conditions, according to the new study. Credit: USGS
Also, with the Monitoring agency scrubbing data, such as a M5.5 #quake in a extinct volcano in Scotland, we need to be more vigilant on monitoring the feeds ourselves.
10/22/2014 — TWO extinct volcanoes could blow in South America — Last erupted 160,000 yrs ago
by Michael Janitch
TWO volcanoes in South America could erupt any time ... last time they erupted 160,000 years ago!!!!
Now I think we can say things are getting a bit strange geologically. The amount of unrest picking up is phenomenal to say the least:
The last eruption 160,000 years ago? This now confirms that extinct / dormant volcanoes are showing activity.
Cerro Negro volcano, and Volcán Chiles volcanic complex are located along the border of Columbia and Ecuador. Both ancient volcanoes are experiencing unrest ..... Authorities
