Giant lava dome formation after 7.3 ka supereruption at Kikai caldera, SW Japan

Edgar Cayce: The greater part of Japan will sink into the ocean


A lava dome discovered in the Pacific Ocean off southern Japan contains more than 7.5 cubic miles of volcanic magma and could kill as many as 100 million people if it erupts, according to Japanese scientists.. Researchers at the Kobe Ocean Bottom Exploration Centre reported that the lava dome - one of the largest ever discovered in the world - is expanding within the Kikai Caldera, an undersea volcano just over 30 miles from the southern tip of Kyushu, the most southerly of Japan’s main islands.

The dome stands nearly 2,000 feet proud of the seabed and is now a mere 100 feet beneath the surface. It is more than six miles in diameter and occupies a massive hollow within the caldera.

The Kikai Caldera.. devastated a large swathe of the Japanese archipelago when it spewed upwards of 120 cubic miles of magma during the Akahoya eruption some 7,000 years ago – and scientists have just confirmed evidence of new volcanic activity under the crater..

"The lava dome is chemically different from the super-eruption, suggesting that a new magma supply system had been developed after 7,300 years ago," In other words, whatever the significance of the lava dome is, this volume of hot, viscous rock – standing some 1,968 feet tall.. isn't an echo of Akahoya, but something new taking shape under the East China Sea.

I checked a bit to make sure this isn't a re-post. If so, flame me and delete me. Put me in irons and off to the tower.

Hmm, I wonder if is on NHK now. It's quite away from Fukuoka, kind of my area, but like dang, if that erupts will be not good from an agricultural point of view also.

This would not be good for the Pacific Rim.

Pray for the best and prepare for the worst.

If Japan ever slid into the ocean, Big changes over night in a really bad way would occur. No doubt it would cause a ripple effect across the globe.

This region of Japan is in the “Ring of Fire” – a perimeter around the Pacific ocean that has more than 100 active volcanoes. Geologically speaking, there is nothing unusual about this eruption. Mount Aso is one of the more active volcanoes in the region. As of January 2015, the Smithsonian's Global Volcanism Program had documented almost 40 eruptions since 1950.

The ring of fire reverberates like a drum. If this volcano throws a tantrum...if you are in the ring and the tides starts to recede, get your butts off the beach.

It has happened before it will happen again .
Fact is earth has had a nice long time of no major events .
Earth is over due for a even of this magnitude .

Yellow stone has waited 640,000 k years average is 250 k years this one looks like a average of 50 k years But being ware its at could very well be reducing the time between eruptions .
last but not least by any means Toba erupted 75,000 years agaio and again is due as its average is 75,000 years .

But least we forget good old fashion earth movements ( aka earth quakes )
wile most one produce local destruction sometime in the wrong place at the wrong time leads to massive destruction
like the one ten years or so back that killed over 100,000 people .

But there is a even worse one in the making as I type .( Canary Island volcano ) this volcano is a shield volcano .
what that means is when it erupts sometimes it almost all ash then the next eruption will be magma making a cone that is layers of ash and rock this means its very unstable .

Why worry ? well back in the 1960s a huge crack started almost half the island stated heading for the ocean .
when ( not if When the island finly does fall into the ocean its will create a tidal wave 300 feet high and guess ware the wave will hit ?
The entire east cost of the US . But not to worry UK isnt getting out of it the wave will hit them as well .

Doom porn is not fake it is Us knowing some day some time something WILL happen . What makes a fool is tring to predict when or ware .
Maybe it will be a rock with earth name on it maybe a volcano maybe a mega quake or juts old sol acting up .
see old sol isnt old at all sol is in mid life and well all know sometime mid life crises can happen .

If this were to go off, seems it should crack Fukushima wide open. Think we'd have more then just lava, ash and tidal waves to worry about.

I imagine the tsunami from that would be pacific wide and devastating.

The number of reactors going into melt-down would stagger the imagination. Japan would not survive as a nation and the islands would become largely uninhabitable.

Besides the other crap that happens when mother nature shows her true strength.
