Hi BIG T.

The graphics in these movies are amazing, like "2012". And the lead male in San Andreas ain't half bad either (from Duck's perspective) wink

Here are some links to some of the latest info on volcano happenings.

Submerged volcano cluster found off coast of Sydney

Just thought I'd pop this into the thread, interesting read & will be fascinating as they analyse them further.

Hi Kazz63.

It is interesting. The undersea mounds (volcanic) can be made out on satellite images. I reckon these sea mounds are not too distant cousins of some of the volcanic provinces which run up/down the eastern regions of the Australian mainland.
These are the sorts of reports (discoveries of undersea volcanoes), which I mentioned quite a while ago will start to become news and noted.

I will be interested in seeing what other info the scientists present in the future about Australia's volcanic regions.

Cheers, Duck wink

An increase in technology is revealing more and more of the hidden areas of the planet. Wow think of all the heat from many active submerged vents spewing into the briny depths.

Hi Knot.

Yeh, I have often wondered what the heat produced from 'thermals' in the oceans does or contributes to warm pools traveling around the oceans, and how it may affect localized or event distant climate.....?

Cheers, Duck.

Hi Knot.

Yes it is all very interesting. Volcanoes can cause climactic changes. Other natural occurrences also can cause such changes. The number of volcanoes on land and under-sea must be having some sort of effect on parts of the Earth's climate...?

Cheers, Duck.

Hi all.

An undersea volcano has started erupting near Taiwan;

see here

I'll try and catch up with EQ stuff later.

Cheers, Duck.

Here's the full text from the alert I received earlier re the undersea Caribbean volcano:


Potential Kick ’em Jenny Activity (Orange Alert) and the Associated Tsunami Threat Statement from the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center and US National Tsunami Warning Center

Kick 'em Jenny is an active submarine volcano or seamount on the Caribbean Sea floor, located 8 km (5 mi) north of the island of Grenada and about 8 km (5 mi) west of Ronde Island in the Grenadines at roughly 12.30° N, 61.64° W. Its summit is approximately 200 m (600 ft) below the surface of the ocean.

What?
The Seismic Research Centre (SRC) of the University of the West Indies has issued an Orange Alert for the underwater volcano Kick ’em Jenny1. An Orange Alert means “Highly elevated level of seismic and/or fumarolic activity or other unusual activity. Eruption may begin with less than twenty-four hours notice.”

Why?
Instruments monitored by SRC recorded strong, continuous seismic activity from the volcano between 1:25 am and 3:00 am, local time, July 23, 2015 suggesting than an eruption could occur with less than 24-hours notice. Signs of elevated seismicity (earthquakes) began on July 11th and continue to the present.

What is the tsunami threat?
An undersea volcanic eruption can displace the overlying seawater, generating tsunami waves. The amplitude of the waves and area threatened depends upon many factors including the size, depth, and nature of the eruption. Should a tsunami occur, waves would reach Grenada within just a few minutes. If the tsunami were large enough to expand further, it would reach St. Vincent within 10 minutes, Martinique and Tobago within about 30 minutes, and Barbados within about 40 minutes. A very large tsunami could reach the northern coast of Venezuela to the south and the Leeward Islands and Puerto Rico within an hour and a half. Any tsunami hazard would be confined to the Caribbean region.

What is being done?
Kick 'em Jenny activity is being closely monitored by the SRC and further updates will be issued by SRC as more information becomes available. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center and US National Tsunami Warning Center are also following the situation closely and will be monitoring seismic and sea level data from the nearest seismic and coastal sea level gauges. Should an eruption be confirmed and/or tsunami be detected they will issue appropriate messages to their respective areas of responsibility in the Caribbean region. Citizens are reminded to follow all instructions from their local emergency management. Some rules for tsunami safety and response can be found at: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/Tsunami/
SRC recommends that vulnerable communities be advised of evacuation routes and transport be put on standby. SRC indicates that local radio stations in Grenada, St. Vincent, Barbados and Trinidad have been placed on alert. SRC recommends that the public listen to their local radio continuously for updates and visits the Seismic Research Center website if possible..SRC instructs that shipping vessels should stay outside of the first exclusion zone - 1.5 km from the summit of Kick ’em Jenny and that non-essential shipping, such as pleasure craft, should stay outside of the secondary exclusion zone – 5 km clear of the summit.

There's been a big volcanic eruption of Mt Manam in PNG a few hours ago with the ash cloud up to 65,000 feet (20km) high.

There's already an aviation colour code red (the highest) on it.

Wouldn't be surprised if it caused some disruptions and/or diversions to flights whose routes lie near the area and maybe some spectacular sunsets in the region.

Below is the output from the HYSPLIT ash dispersion scheme showing where the higher concentrations of ash could spread to by Sunday morning - this assumes a worst case scenario though (continuous eruption for 48hrs and no ash reduction) so the actual outcome might be different:

Could defiantly start causing some disruptions to air travel. Definatly would expect some are Port Moresby in PNG then towards Cairns and Darwin if is doesnt let up

It looks like Cotopaxi in Ecuador could be gearing up for a major eruption. The government there has declared a state of emergency for the whole country. If this does go bang and the aerosols ejected into the stratosphere are sulphur rich this eruption has the potential to have global impact on temps, given how close to equator the beast is. This could bring more snow to our Alps or is too late for impact. What do others think?

Hi folks.

Here's a link to a live webcam from the Port of Sakurajima, Japan, which is focused on the volcano.

Cheers for now, Duck.

Hi all, Cotopaxi is a worry, being one of the largest volcano's around & has had a very long repose . Has a history of VEI3 -VEI5 eruptions.
Seems to be a fair bit of activity around the world atm !

cheers Bluey

Cotopaxi

In Spanish. Just plug into google translate or something to get the gist. This one is really one to watch
