I was at a family friend's house yesterday when I heard about the volcano eruption in the Galapagos. Our friend was focused entirely on golf (the US Open), and I only saw the news report about the Galapagos briefly, however it piqued my interest... particularly because of the recent events in Guatemala, and Hawaii, and the earthquake that just occurred in Japan over the weekend.

All of these locations are located in or around the infamous "Ring of Fire".

Yellowstone is also a concern. Some info on if Yellowstone were to majorly erupt:



it was only in the 1960s that scientists realized the scale of the volcano — it's 44 miles across — and not until the 1980s did they grasp that this thing is fully alive and still threatens to erupt catastrophically. Yellowstone is capable of eruptions thousands of times more violent than the Mount St. Helens eruption of 1980. The northern Rockies would be buried in multiple feet of ash. Ash would rain on almost everyone in the United States.


It has been supposedly 630,000 years since Yellowstone's last major eruption.

I don't have any major epiphanies or jaw-dropping conclusions, but simply wanted to string these thoughts together and see what others thought about the premise of the "Ring of Fire" waking up, and potential ticking time bombs such as Yellowstone.

Insights and commentary from my fellow ATS members would be greatly appreciated, as always!

If Yellowstone blows we can kiss our behinds good-bye.I may be
wrong,but Yellowstone could be an E.L.E. extinction,level event.
If not an E.L.E.,it could cause another ice-age.

I've never seen a correlation between the ring of fire and Yellowstone.

I don't believe they're related, but who knows, further studies might show a connection.

...and i feel fine


The scorching, blistering, heat peels across my screaming flesh, tearing strips from my flailing body...
My lungs fill with the ashes of a million years of stagnating earth, trying to breathe yet I'm only able to gasp.
My eyes, blinded by the intensity of the caldera now bursting with fire and brimstone, weep vitreous as they boil and stream down my roasting face.
it is the end of the world as we know it...

...and I feel fine !!

ps: don't tell TEOTWAWKI !!

No. Toba wasn't an ELE, Taupo wasn't an ELE - so why would Yellowstone be? Even if it erupts, there is no guarantee it would be a VEI 7 or 8.

Just for arguments sake say it was a super eruption, it would be terrible news for North America and potentially for the Northern Hemisphere - but even that isn't guaranteed. Years ago, we thought the Toba super eruption nearly did for humanity and took us down to around 70'000 people. We now know this wasn't the case and we have geological evidence that it didn't even really affect East Africa too badly (first port of call across the Indian Ocean).

I love me some doom porn but super eruptions no longer appear to be E.L.E type events.

www.express.co.uk...


Are the Galapagos Islands in the Ring of Fire?

The Ring of Fire is a major basin in the Pacific Ocean responsible for 75 percent of the world’s volcanic eruptions.

The Galapagos Islands sit in the Ring of Fire and are all volcanic islands.

Fernandina Island is less than one million years and is the most active volcanically of the Galapagos chain, sitting at the heart of the point which formed the region.







Due to geographic locations YS and the ring of fire are no connected...but that doesn't mean that there isn't a tectonic/earthquake correlation between the two. I just know parts of Earth are all connected one way or another.

If the North American continent lasts another 1,000,000 years or so...

No,
It's just nature, happens all the time.

Personally, id be more worried about Long Valley rather than Yellowstone. A super volcano far more likely to erupt i'd say.

It's been predicted that the Ring of Fire is going be active in the next few years because there is a cycle of activity - every 18 years. Plus those magnitude 6.0+ earthquakes have unlocked the tectonic plates. So they are moving and are increasing pressure on the magma below.

We had some strong electrical storms across Europe not so long ago. Looking at the lightningmaps.org it looked like the electrical storms across the world were spaced equally apart like some spherical harmonics mode of oscillation.

Sounds like we are looking at Ragnarok....

electrical storms produced by Thor (God of Thunder)...and Surtur (Ragnarok) will be unleashed in Yellow Stone...

Oh this should be a good show when the 'big on' happens

June 27: Galapagos' Sierra Negra volcano eruption triggers evacuation




Fifty people have been evacuated from the surrounding area and tourists have been barred from visiting it. The eruption started after two strong earthquakes opened up fissures in the 1,124m-high (3688ft) volcano.

It comes 11 days after the Cumbre volcano, the most active on the Galapagos, erupted on the uninhabited island of Fernandina.

The Sierra Negra volcano is located on the south-eastern tip of Isabela, the largest of the 18 main islands which make up the Galapagos Archipelago.
