News just in, thought I'd share it here.

Volcano eruption Indonesia. Mount Sinabung



An enormous volcanic eruption in Indonesia has shot a vast plume of ash and dust over 3 miles (5km) into the sky and plunged local villages into darkness. The Mount Sinabung volcano, on North Sumatra, erupted early on Monday, with thick layers of ash covering areas up to 12 miles from the crater.




The volcano had been dormant for over 400 years until an eruption in 2010 in which two people were killed. Since then several eruptions have occurred.

Just wait until Yellowstone's supervolcano erupts.

Right and when it blows others will too....

Which new agey soundingMatrix explanation was used for all the other times Volcanos have erupted in history?

A little project I came up with during the 2012 thing.

Granted, the year isn't over yet. But nothing really seems to be out of the ordinary. Fewer new eruptions is all we got so far.

You clearly don't get this "doom porn" thing.

That's interesting. So we have been having less eruptions. Is this a normal thing due to natural cycles, or is this playing into a build up of pressure that might lead to a large eruption in the near future (near future as in human time, not geological time)?

Thoughts Phage.

I think the year is not over and that by the time it is the number of new eruptions will be greater than it is now.

I think that there maybe fluctuations in both volcanic and earthquake activity. Sometimes there is more, sometimes there is less.

I don't think that all volcanoes are connected to each other so I don't think that the idea of a "build up of pressure" makes much sense. I don't think that next year's activity can be predicted by this year's.

They don't have to be connected by magma chambers in order to affect each other. If you have two volcanos building up pressure, and another one in between those two, then more then likely the one in the middle will also have an increase in pressures to. With this lack of major, or even minor, volcanic activities the plate itself will be pressed even at the geologically slightest amount. Could be an issue that's not being looked at.

Thank you for your observations about this. Given where you live, you should have a useful opinion about this topic.

Why? If they are not connected?

As I understand it, magma formation has more to do with tectonic activity (and hotspots) than vice versa.

But look at the chart. Does it support your hypothesis? Statistically, the variations don't seem to amount to much.


We're pretty isolated here, in variety of ways. Including volcanism.
