I follow Extinction Protocol which provides links to each news event as they happen and they number each volcano eruption through the year. Not
sure they can fudge that up when they provide links. They also use Volcano Discovery.
So. No database then. That makes it sort of hard to
verify their numbers.
Here is the list of erupting volcanoes in 2013 from the database I used. Can you check their links to find out which ones I'm missing? Maybe we can
find the source of the discrepancy.
Aira; Ambrym; Bagana; Barren Island; Bezymianny; Chirinkotan; Chirpoi; Cleveland; Colima; Copahue; Dukono; Erta Ale; Etna; Etorofu-Yakeyama [Grozny
Group]; Fuego; Galeras; Heard; Ibu; Izu-Torishima; Karangetang [Api Siau]; Karkar; Karymsky; Ketoi; Kikai; Kilauea; Kizimen; Kliuchevskoi;
Kliuchevskoi; Láscar; Lengai, Ol Doinyo; Lokon-Empung; Manam; Mayon; Merapi; Nyiragongo; Pacaya; Paluweh; Pavlof; Poás; Popocatépetl; Rabaul;
Reventador; Ruiz, Nevado del; San Cristóbal; Sangay; Santa María; Shiveluch; Sinabung; Soufrière Hills; Stromboli; Suwanosejima; Tangkubanparahu;
Tara, Batu; Tofua; Tolbachik; Tungurahua; Turrialba; Ubinas; Ulawun; Veniaminof; Villarrica; White Island
Hard to deny that there is a significant increase in quakes when these numbers rise that much without the USGS even tracking them outside the
I'm not sure where you came up with those numbers but why did you stop at 2010? This is what I get:
2 - 2.9
The only real increase I see is in very small quakes in 2013? What happened there? Well, one obvious thing is that data up until 2012 there was data
from just one network (PDE) included in the database. In 2013 there is data from 14 networks. Most notable additions are the Alaska, Northern
California, Puerto Rico, and US networks. Between those there are an total of more than 7,000 tiny earthquakes. Since tiny earthquakes cannot be
located except by local networks, it makes sense that there would be an increase in recorded quakes with increase in the number of networks.
