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:

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?
http://edition.cnn.com/2010/WORLD/africa/05/13/libya.planecrash/  If the finding show ash in the engines, it will be a wake up call for the airline industry and the scientists who predict ash levels.  [link to volcan-islande-live.media.officelive.com] traffic airline, livecam, image hd, diaporama (updates 1h).

Go figure, at 9:35 am 05:36:11 UTC- a 5.1M earthquake struck off the coast of Oregon, USA. 

Stay safe friends.

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.
