Iceland is very seismically active and has numerous volcanoes and it looks like another eruption could occur anytime.

The Eyjafjallajokoll volcano that erupted last year created havoc and some great conspiracy.  Air travel was interrupted grounding airplanes all over Europe.  The stoppage was supposedly due to silica in the ash possibly clogging the engines; even though airplanes fly sand storms in Afghanistan and Iraq.  

We thought we found a face on the surface.

The scream: A radar image shows the crater of Eyjafjallajokull in southeast Iceland, which looks like the nightmarish face painted by Edvard Munch. AFP GETTY IMAGES.

We thought we’d found a UFO.  http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/04/17/ufo-near-iceland-volcano-on-webcam/

Some blamed global warming.  Icelandic Met Office http://en.vedur.is/hydrology/articles/nr/2110  said, “In some areas of Iceland’s glaciers, where ash from the Eyjafjallajökull volcanic eruption was sufficiently thick, glacial melt increased. However, on western Mýrdalsjökull ice cap which is next to Eyjafjallajökull, the ash was so thick that it acted as an insulator.” 

“Increased glacial melt due to volcanic ash, unless thick enough to insulate.”

Hard to imagine a scientist that doesn’t blame global warming isn’t it?  One thing we learned more about from the Eyjafjallajökull eruption is that there seems to be a connection between earthquake swarms and eruptions.  We wouldn’t have thought it to be rocket science, just rock science. When adding one and one you get two.   When the earth shakes it makes sense that the likelihood of a fissure releasing volcanic ash and lava increases.
 

Volcanic System of Iceland

 
The Volcanic System of Iceland runs the length of the country, pretty much right down the middle.  Last year the great worry was that Katla, the big sister of Eyjafjallajokull was also going to erupt.  This image from the Met office is from May 21, 2010 to give an indication of the rumblings underground.  Katla did not errupt.
 
On May 24, 2010 the eruption was declared over.  http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/05/25/icelands-volcano-eruption-endstops/  It was also about the same time Scientists in China succeeded in teleporting information between photons further than ever before. They transported quantum information over a free space distance of 16 km (10 miles) A connection, an off switch?  Of course we could always blame HAARP.
 
Like a pregnancy, here we are 9 months later and mother nature looks like she is about to give birth to more eruptions in Iceland.
 
Earthquake count in the last 48 hours as of Friday, Feb 11, 2011, about 10:30 am EST:
  • Magnitude less than 1:  10
  • Magnitude 1 to 2:  31
  • Magnitude 2 to 3:  3
  • Magnitude more than 3:  0
  • Total: 44
 
Iceland Volcano and Earthquake blog is a must follow, written by Jón Frímann. From his last entry:
 
The Icelandic Met Office has issued that there is no eruption about to start in Bárðarbunga volcano. News that claim that are wrong and remain that until proven otherwise.

Iceland Met Office announcement. Original announcement can be found here (IMO web site)

Specialist remark

Presently, there are no signs of an imminent volcanic eruption in Iceland. The Icelandic Meteorological Office (IMO) did not issue a warning last weekend in connection with increased seismicity beneath the Vatnajökull ice-cap. If signs of an eruption were apparent, IMO would issue a warning immediately.

A lot of earthquakes does not always mean that an eruption is immanent. It sometimes just means a lot of earthquakes and nothing more. Media dramatization does not chance this fact.

The folks at http://bigthink.com/ideas/26821 run an awesome site on volcanism worthy of a bookmark as well.

Our money is on another eruption.  Stayed tuned for more truth and conspiracy!

Eruption May 19, 2010

Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull Volcano Eruption Ends May 24, 2010

Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano eruption, “seems to be dormant,” according to Icelandic Meteorological Office, Office of Earth Sciences and the University of Iceland.  http://en.vedur.is/media/jar/Eyjafjallajokull_status_2010-05-24_IES_IMO.pdf

There is no ashfall being reported although there is still some steam and the earthquakes have subsided a bit.  We are still seeing seismic activity creeping towards Katla as we reported previously this week at http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/05/22/icelands-katla-volcano-recent-earthquakes/ There were two mild tremors detected in the last 24 hours near the Katla volcano.

Earthquakes Subsiding, May 25, 2010

Who turned off the volcano’s switch?  A few days ago there was no end in sight.

Scientists have several ways of forecasting when the Eyjafjallajökull eruption will stop. But their data – and history – suggest the Iceland volcano’s ash cloud could persist for some time…The rumblings of small earthquakes can suggest that magma is still welling up from the bowels of the earth, feeding the eruption. The distension of the mountain itself – measured through global positioning system devices – can also provide hints as to whether the volcano is swelling or deflating.   As of last week, scientists were still measuring dozens of small earthquakes beneath the volcano, suggesting that no end was in sight. http://www.truthout.org/iceland-volcano-ash-cloud-when-will-eyjafjallaj%C3%B6kull-eruption-stop59600

“There is still something going on inside, some tremors, it is possible it could erupt again, but when is a question nobody can answer,” said Jonsson Thorsteinn am Iceland Met forecaster. http://www.cnn.com/2010/TRAVEL/05/24/volcanic.ash.cloud.dormant/index.html

No end in sight but something is going on inside?  Maybe something is going on outside.  HAARP, CERN, FERMI and similar particle physics labs were doing the usual.  There were no reports out of the ordinary unless, you call teleportation ordinary.

Bob and Alice Photons Teleport 10 Miles

Scientists in China have succeeded in teleporting information between photons further than ever before. They transported quantum information over a free space distance of 16 km (10 miles), much further than the few hundred meters previously achieved, which brings us closer to transmitting information over long distances without the need for a traditional signal.http://www.physorg.com/news193551675.html

Could it transmit a signal deep into the earth to cause an earthquake?   Could the energy of a photon, atom or a HAARP array have the power to move energy from one volcano to another? Say to maybe Costa Rica?

The Arenal volcano in Costa Rica erupted as Iceland’s volcano quieted, blowing emissions of ash and causing eight avalanches. http://topnews.us/content/220556-costa-ricas-arenal-volcano-erupts-monday-morning

(PhysOrg.com) http://www.physorg.com/news193990952.html – By demonstrating how a single artificial atom can be used to amplify electromagnetic waves, physicists from Japan are opening up new possibilities for quantum amplifiers, which can be used in a variety of electronic and optical applications.

Amplified electromagnetic waves?!?   We already know HAARP’s high-frequency radio waves can accelerate electrons in the atmosphere, increasing the energy of their collisions.  http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/10/16/earthquake-haarp-connection-evidence/  Now we are now talking about an Atom possibly having the same ability to amplify electromagnetic waves, if not into the atmosphere certainly here on earth.. 

Modern Conspiracy wrote:

Bear in mind that some of the droughts, floods, weather extremes, earthquakes, violent storms, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions and so on are artificially induced by miscreants. These artificial geological activities are exacerbating the situation as the Earth is nearing the final stages of implosion. http://www.modernconspiracy.com/end-days/811-physical-universe-collapsing-physics-being-altered.html

Maybe the author is right, maybe he is wrong.  Should we just take off our tinfoil hats and be happy that a major volcanic eruption in Iceland just stopped? 

Can’t help but thinking:

David Rockefeller said, “All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.” Rahm Emanuel said, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” In the Project for a New American Century document Rebuilding America’s Defenses: Strategy, Forces and Resources for a New Century we find the following: “Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor. http://www.conspiracyarchive.com/

For now, one catalyzing event that grounded air travel over much of Europe seems to be over.  Too bad we can’t teleport in time to fix a whole lot of what is wrong in the world.

Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull last status shows a decline in the ash cloud.  The ground continues to rumble and earthquake activity is increasing under the bigger volcano, Katla.

The earthquakes at the Katla volcano site appear to possibly be increasing in frequency as of this moment (time will tell however). Since May 17 there have been four earthquakes at or very near Katla, while a 5th just on the edge of the Myrdalsjokull glacier.

Although 4 or 5 earthquakes at the volcano site in 4 days does not indicate a drastic change in pattern, the interesting notation at the moment is the fact that  the two most recent earthquakes occurred within 3 hours of each other on 21 May, 2010, at depths of 5km and 13km. That in itself is an increase in occurrence. It may be an anomaly, but it justifies keeping one eye on Katla, the big sister of Eyjafjallajokull.

There is some correlation between earthquakes and the prediction of an eruption, but they are unreliable.  Wouldn’t it be nice to know how to predict when a volcano will stop erupting?  In Hawaii, the world’s longest erupting volcano,  Kilauea began erupting 10,000 days ago yesterday.   It began erupting January 23, 1983 and has no end in sight.  Blogger Leigh Hilbert lives near the volcano and has daily updates and fabulous photos- http://hawaiianlavadaily.blogspot.com/2010/05/hawaii-volcanoes-national-park.html.  I wish we could send him to Iceland for awhile to make the comparisons between the two and to provide better photos than we are getting from the press there.   Are there no professional photographers in Iceland?

Mount St. Helen's Eruption May 18, 1980. (Nat. Geo)

Mount Saint Helen’s volcano erupted thirty years ago today-May 18, 1980.  “The devastation erupted so violently that it leveled 150 square miles of trees, sent the mountain’s north face 14 miles down the Toutle River and dropped gray ash around the world.”  http://www.usatoday.com/NEWS/usaedition/2010-05-17-mtsthelens17_ST_U.htm?csp=34 

The destruction began at 8:32 a.m. on May 18, when the north side of the mountain slid away after two months of intense earthquake activity and weaker eruptions. The landslide uncorked pressurized magma and released a blast so powerful that 1,300 feet of the mountain’s peak collapsed or blew outward, 24 square miles of valley was filled by a debris avalanche, 250 square miles of land was damaged by a lateral blast, and 57 people were killed.

Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull began the eruption in the same way, with an increase an increase of earthquake activity.  Eya continues to erupt and cause disruptions, but no one has died and the lava has not spread 150 miles of devastation.  Eya is holding us hostage,  not sending us running for cover-at least not yet.  

It is Iceland’s other major volcano’s that are becoming increasingly the center of debate.  Scientists are predicting  decades of ash disruptions and predictions of eruptions from Katla, which lies only 15 miles to the east of Eyjafjallajokull volcanic eruptions. 

Lo and behold there was a quake beneath both Hekla on May 16 and Katla, May 17. via The Ice Met Office.  Uh, oh.

An eruption at Katla would cause very sudden jökulhlaups (glacier outburst floods).  They occurred during the subglacial eruption in Eyjafjallajökull volcano but have slowed.  Katla’s ice crater is estimated to be 2,000 feet thick and if she blows, that ice is going to melt fast and quickly wiping out everything in it’s path.  It is the fourth largest volcano in Iceland -220 sq. miles (580 sq. km). A large caldera 9 miles (14 km) in diameter underlies the ice.

At least three other big Icelandic volcanoes are building towards an eruption, according to Thor Thordarson, a volcanologist at Edinburgh University.  The three other volcanoes cited by Thordarson as being potentially close to a large eruption are Grimsvotn, Hekla and Askja — all of which are bigger than Eyjafjallajokull. http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/article7127706.ece

Looking ever so peaceful, is the Hekla crater in this 2008 photo by David Adamson. http://picasaweb.google.com/thunder.son Hekla is 75 miles (120 km) east of Reykjavik and last erupted in 2000.

The Institute of Earth Sciences reports, “Hekla is a volcano with special seismic characteristics. During non-eruptive periods it is virtually aseismic, and does not give any obvious long-term or intermediate-term precursory warning before eruptions. The eruption-related seismicity starts only 30-80 minutes before its onset.  http://www.earthice.hi.is/page/ies_heklaseismicity

Mount St. Helen’s and Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcanic eruptions gave obvious seismic warning signs far ahead.  A quiet Hekla poses a huge challenge for predictability, warnings and safety. 

There is perhaps no other natural disaster quite as spectacular or potentially as destructive as that of an erupting volcano. Spewing out ash and magma that can kill a human in seconds, unleashing toxic gases from the belly of the planet, a volcano is truly nature’s fury unleashed. http://scrapetv.com/News/News%20Pages/usa/pages-4/Climber-unexpectedly-dies-after-falling-into-volcano-Scrape-TV-The-World-on-your-side.html

Human curiosity via webcams and tours to view volcano’s are common. Falling to your death in one is not so common. In February 2010, Joseph Bohlig posed for a picture with Mount Rainier in the background when he turned around and took a final step on the cornice and fell to his death. 

Though the connections go down pretty often, I’ll stick to the webcams at: 

 link to sv.tinypic.com]  [link to eldgos.mila.is]  [link to www.ruv.is]  [link to www.vodafone.is] [link to www.mulakot.net] [link to www.sat24.com]  “We have limited TV footage of the volcanic eruption. It’s all the same shots, and the same angles. Surely there must be something new to show? And there was a shot of a car in a dust cloud. Easily staged, and the only “evidence” of dust,” wrote  http://citizengodden.com/2010/04/16/iceland-volcanic-cloud-conspiracy/.

Putting our tinfoil hat back on, we search for any connections between natural physical science and the possibility of man causing volcano’s, earthquakes, tsunami’s and related disasters.  A cover-up of some sort?  An intervention with HAARP, ESCAT, CERN, etc., and quite possibly the impact on Earth’s magnetosphere from the atmosphere all offer some plausibility.  Others would say, God is just ticked off, that some catastrophes are just an, “Act of God.”

One thing for sure, volcano’s and magma’s muscle put humility in man and the power beneath our planet.

A New Vent or Crater Forming? May 13, 2010

The Earthquake count at Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano had a total of 103 earthquakes occurring in the area with in a 48 hour period.  From Iceland Met Office.  

Earthquake count:

Magnitude less than 1:  52

Magnitude 1 to 2:  41

Magnitude 2 to 3:  10

Magnitude more than 3:  0

Total: 103

The number total changes with the clock, but 100 plus detectable quakes in a 48 hour period is nothing to sneeze at.   These earthquakes were only the ones around the eruption.  We are now beginning to see  increases in magnitude and frequency across all of Iceland.   There is little doubt that seismic eruptions and deformations in the earth’s crust could cause magma to flow toward fractures around the larger Katla volcano.

RUV reports a series of earthquakes under and around Eyjafjallajokull which could signal changes to the volcanic eruption.  According to geophysicist Steinunn Jakobsdottir, the quakes could be a sign of a new vent about to open. The volcano already has three vents, but only the one on the northernmost edge is still erupting.
 
Ash fall in the area has been decreasing and is currently very fine but large rocks have replaced the ash production, apparently caused by the earthquakes. The rocks are being shot high up into the air and crashing down onto the glacier, making holes in the ice. The size and weight of the rocks means that they are a very localised problem and only fall very near to the volcano.http://www.icenews.is/index.php/2010/05/11/air-travel-normalising-again-as-volcano-changes-behaviour
While ash fall has certainly NOT been decreasing, apparently, the volcano is also bulging slightly, read here…link to content.usatoday.com

Today’s earthquakes locations are all over Iceland,  as opposed to just being centered around Eyjafjallajokull only reporting 3 mild quakes so far.  

Earthquake Swarms Under All of Iceland

Connect the dots and there is a pattern.  Perhaps the level of Magma is rising and spreading.  We’ve all heard about the chance of another volcano eruption and maybe these changes are a significant predictor of things to come.  In the below image you can see the plate boundaries, and that is where most of the quakes are occurring.  

  

Looking above ground and watching the numerous web cams we found a live video stream for May 11, 2010 that has an unknown object flying around http://img269.imageshack.us/img269/9734/volcan0.mp4.  The stream was recorded from this site.  http://mulakot.net/images/myndavelar/14flugv.jpg   It is a condensed 6 hours in 40 seconds, each frame is 15 seconds apart or close and runs a minute or two long.  

A Bird, A Plane, A UFO?

A UFO, a spotter plane, a Chinese lantern?  What ever it is, it is flying about  in the Tephra fallout. 
 
Looking at more of today’s images, it looks like there may be a new vent or crater as geophysicist Steinunn Jakobsdottir suggested.  It appears the be releasing steam or gas at this time.  None the less, most of the world’s airspace remains open even though it has reached as far as Africa.    The latest updates on the Ash Cloud …
 
  
 
One has to wonder if the recent horrible plane crash has any correlation to the ash?

Eruption May 10, 2010 at GMT 14:19:39

Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull eruption has no end in sight.  This morning alone, there have been a whopping 50 earthquakes near the volcano, as the ash continues to cause havoc.  http://en.vedur.is/earthquakes-and-volcanism/earthquakes/myrdalsjokull/#view=table

Some of these quakes getting closer to fault line toward Helka and Katla, which if she blows will certainly send folks running for the hills.  The Seismic Station, Godabunga located between Eyja and Katla and is dancing up a storm.

Godabunga (GOD) Tremor Reading May 10, 2010

We know of four Eyjafjallajokull eruptions in the past [dating back to AD 500] and in three out of these four cases, there has been a Katla eruption either at the same time or shortly after.

“By shortly, I mean timescales of months to a year. “We consider that the probability of Katla erupting in the near future has increased since Eyjafjallajokull went.” But we know there are fissures running between the two volcanoes. And they’re quite close to each other.

“They’re also being subjected to the same tectonic forces. So the chances are that if magma can find a pathway to rise beneath one of them, it can find its way to rise beneath the other.”   Researchers do know that the two volcanoes have separate magma chambers, but many suspect that these chambers are physically linked in some way, deep beneath the surface of the Earth. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/8668604.stm

Anyone ready to make a prediction how many quakes we will see in total just for today? At this rate we may reach a hundred!  Last updated a few minutes ago-

May 10, 2010

A new webcam has been added with thermal imaging.  Watch the show at http://www.flir.com/thermography/eurasia/se/data/?id=30533 . Due to server bandwidth limitations, you may need to refresh the page (F5) to see the video stream, the images are worth it.

UPDATED at 12:54 p.m EST,   60 Earthquakes in Eyjafjallajokull region so far today.

Visible Volcanic Shockwaves and UFO’s?

Iceland’s rumbling, smoking volcano Eyjafjallajokull shows rainbow-like shockwaves belching from the crater like snakes from a can of nuts.  Nothing to fear, though, it’s merely the aftereffects of Plinian events. via Fox http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2010/04/23/stunning-new-video-shows-shockwaves-icelands-volcano/ The video was loaded April 20, 2010.

Nothing to Fear?  Fear itself?

The explosions are called Plinian events, after the historian Pliny who described the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD. 

The gases expand rapidly and separate from the magma, causing explosive bursts of tremendous magnitude equivalent to a significant dynamite explosion. As the video shows, the explosion hurls incandescent blobs of lava hundreds of feet into the air — and cause visible shockwaves.

Bursts of tremendous magnitude? As big as a dynamite explosion? Visible shockwaves? Mmmm?

The seismic activity surrounding the volcano isn’t showing the kind of activity you would expect from an eruption large enough to create visible shockwaves. 

We have this report that things are relatively calm:

The power of the Eyjafjallajokull eruption has remained stable for at least the last two days according to emergency coordinators in South Iceland. The volcanic cloud has swung round to the northwest of the glacier today, but there is little ash fall. The cloud has become lighter in colour, indicating more steam and less ash.  http://www.icenews.is/index.php/2010/04/23/iceland-volcano-update-2/

The GPS stations have provided important constraints on the evolution of the activity at the volcano. Thorvaldseyri (THEY) started moving south in the end of December followed by rapid deformation at Skogaheidi (SKOG) and Steinsholt (STE2) in the weeks prior to the eruption. Stations Solheimaheidi (SOHO) and Godabunga (GOLA) have also shown significant deformation due to the activity.

Two new sites were installed in the two days prior to the eruption on Fimmvörðuháls (20. March), FIM2, a quadripod station on Fimmvörðuháls, and BAS2, steel rod in Básar. Another steel rod site, SVBH, was installed north of THEY and closer to the summit crater on the 15. April, day after it started erupting.

BAS2 Monitoring Site

Hard to believe something so simple looking could provide so much data. Surprisingly though, the readouts aren’t showing the kind of shifts one would expect from an earthquake spewing lava.

BASAR - GPS Time Series

The U.S. Geological page shows absolutely no readings from this volcano. http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/quakes_all.php. A few quakes are being reported at Iceland Mets Physics Department at http://hraun.vedur.is/ja/englishweb/.

In opposition to Ice News saying things are calm, The Institute of Earth Sciences and various collaborators said in the most recent update, “Some fluctuations, with a peak shortly after midnight 22 April related to a small flood of meltwater. Since the onset of the explosive eruption the tremor has overall been gradually increasing, with superimposed fluctuations.” http://www.earthice.hi.is/page/ies_Eyjafjallajokull_eruption

Visible shockwaves aren’t uncommon, occurring with any volcano having an explosive eruption, Quick explained.(sic. Associate vice president for research and dean of grad studies at Southern Methodist University) On the smaller scale, Plinian events cause them and lead to ejecting blobs of lava. But Quick notes that such rumbles can have much greater ramifications.

“On the larger scale, they cause Plinian eruptions like Mt. St Helen in 1981,” he pointed out. via Fox News.

UFO or Solar Flare?

In the debate over whether or not the volcano is becoming more or less active, and how much invisible ash there is; there has been a frenzy of odd images and conspiracy.  Check out this UFO in the above photo, a black sphere shaped object sitting in front of the sun near the volcano at http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/04/17/ufo-near-iceland-volcano-on-webcam/

A perfect sphere or just the sun? A lense flare caught at just the right moment?

At this video from Earth Changes UFO’s Iceland Volcano Sky News V-Shape UFO Formation 18/04/10 one poster claims:

The Iceland volcano UFO was a single scout craft of the terraforming fleet, serving within the Federation. A craft of the member Star Nation of Tau Ceti…from the constellation of Cetus 11.8 light years away…..
So not actually a “formation,” as conjectured..

These boomerang or diamond-shaped scouts were similar types to those observed over Phoenix Arizona in 1997, known as the “Phoenix Lights.”

April 23, 2010. What is that OBJECT?

Eyjafjallajokull volcano 23th of April 2010. Ten Minutes Later.

Another UFO, a solar lense flare? What?

You can still watch the eruption through the clouds. Vodafon has imposed limited access unless you live in Iceland and the Mila.is webcams gets overloaded. Photos in ten minute increments are at http://picasaweb.google.com/102175391233488315229.

Here is a lovely shot of the sun over the volcano from this morning-sans UFO’s and lense flares.  Enjoy the weekend!

UFO Caught on Iceland Webcam

UFO IN ICELAND?

In Iceland, the volcano from the Eyjafjallajokull glacier continues to spew lava and ash.  In the process of looking at webcams for evidence of ash clouds and lava eruptions, I found the above images and stored them (untouched) from the Hveravelir- Vester webcam,  64°52 19°34 Iceland.  It’s likely the cylindrical object in the center of the photo is the sun or moon with a filter on the camera lenses, right?

I waited a few minutes to refresh the webcam to see any changes and viola!    Within a few minutes, whatever the object was has gone away.  The unique V shape or dip in the mountain surrounding the sphere is also gone. The shadow of the light around the black orb has dissolved within minutes.  

In the first picture look to the top left there is a white circular light in the sky over the garage, about 2 inches in the photo.  In the second picture it has moved high above, almost center. One last look at the webcam, now…I still see the white light but no orb.

Note the images are time stamped and within a few minutes whatever it was, is gone.

God strike me dead, hand on the Bible, these these have not been altered in anyway.

What do you make of these?

UPDATED April 18, 2010.  The still photos are now on picassa at http://picasaweb.google.com/Adjusted365247/IcelandUFOApril172010#5461491080016757762 if anyone wants to further enhance the still images.

UPDATED April 25, 2010.  Another UFO spotted above the volcano!  Check it out at http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/04/24/iceland-volcano-visible-shockwaves-ufo/

UPDATED Feb 11,2011 Something caught on the weather webcam in Iceland. See what you make of it at http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2011/02/11/ufo-orb-iceland/

Iceland’s volcano, NO END IN SIGHT!

The Northern Lights over Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcanic eruption.   Photo by Kristinn R Kristinsson.  So much beauty in the devastation.

Ashes, Ashes, They all fall down

Anticipation of the volcanic activity slowing down is wishful thinking as planes remain grounded over much of Europe because of a supposed invisible ash plume.

The earth in Iceland is hardly settled with no less than 57 earthquakes occurring in the last 48 hours. From http://en.vedur.is/earthquakes-and-volcanism/earthquakes/#view=table

Earthquake count:

  • Magnitude less than 1:  16
  • Magnitude 1 to 2:  36
  • Magnitude 2 to 3:  4
  • Magnitude more than 3:  1
  • Total: 57

For whatever reason the USGS (http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/quakes_all.php)  is is showing no seismic activity from Iceland.  Iceland’s Meteorological Office shows numerous quakes including today’s, April 17, 2010 seismicity-  

Saturday

13:45:12 64.789 -17.139 5.2 km 2.1 90.01 3.4 km ENE of Kistufell

An ash cloud above the eruption in Eyjafjallajökull. April 16, 2010.

Staff from the Icelandic Meteorological Office flew with the Icelandic Coast Guard to the Eyjafjallajökull eruption site on the afternoon of April 16th 2010.  At 4 pm the volcanic ash cloud was clearly visible above the cloud deck, rising at times to at least 30,000 feet. Steady winds from the east-north-east moved the cloud away from the volcano.  The cloud height was variable from 25 to 30,000 feet and its colour varied from dark to white, depending on how much ash was in the cloud.

From the live feed of photos from a camera located in Þórólfsfell, which has a view over the river Markarfljót and the glacier Eyjafjallajökull where the eruption is, you can see large plumes continuing to erupt.

“The activity has been quite vigorous overnight, causing the eruption column to grow,” Icelandic geologist Magnus Tumi Gudmundsson told The Associated Press on Saturday. “It’s the magma mixing with the water that creates the explosivity. Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight.” via http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/eu_iceland_volcano

Thousands of commercial flight have been grounded just like on 911, all air-traffic in Northern Europe is down.  The military while diverting injured soldiers away from Germany, are still playing war games.  A large fleet of warships, submarines, frigates and aircraft from 10 NATO countries are taking  part in the ‘Brilliant Mariner’ maritime exercise in the Baltic Sea.  http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/04/15/911-false-flag-volcanic-ash-grounds-flights-military-drills-continue/

What about global warming?   Remember, all the volcanoes in the world release 130 times less CO2 than the human race does each year, so even big eruptions add relatively little to the atmosphere. via  http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/2010/04/eyjafjallajokull_eruption_cont.php

Temperatures in Europe could rise as a result of planes being grounded across the continent, according to research. A study conducted after commercial flights were grounded for three days following the September 11 terror attacks found the average daily temperature range in the U.S. rose markedly – exceeding the three-day periods before and after by 1.8c.  Scientists claimed this showed that clouds formed by the water vapour in the exhaust from jet planes have a small but significant effect on daily temperatures.

What about global cooling?  With an invisible ash cloud, one would suppose that solar radiation would permeate the atmosphere in it’s usual manner.

Somewhat undecided via http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/jamesdelingpole/100035032/official-icelandic-volcano-with-unpronounceable-name-was-caused-by-man-made-global-warming/

Scientific American – via Reuters –OSLO (Reuters) – A thaw of Iceland’s ice caps in coming decades caused by climate change may trigger more volcanic eruptions by removing a vast weight and freeing magma from deep below ground, scientists said on Friday.

Er well, sort of. In the next paragraph they’re forced to concede that the eruption below the Eyjafjallajokull glacier had nothing to do with global warming.

They said there was no sign that the current eruption from below the Eyjafjallajokull glacier that has paralysed flights over northern Europe was linked to global warming. The glacier is too small and light to affect local geology.

But they’re not about to let a good story go that easily:

“Our work suggests that eventually there will be either somewhat larger eruptions or more frequent eruptions in Iceland in coming decades,” said Freysteinn Sigmundsson, a vulcanologist at the University of Iceland.

“Global warming melts ice and this can influence magmatic systems,” he told Reuters. The end of the Ice Age 10,000 years ago coincided with a surge in volcanic activity in Iceland, apparently because huge ice caps thinned and the land rose.

 I can’t get that Jimmy Buffet Song out of my head….

 

“I don’t know, I don’t know,
I don’t know where I’m a-gonna go when the volcano blow…”
