It has been two weeks now and the Chaiten volcano in Chile continues to erupt. There may be an end in sight but it isn't because the volcano is running out of material to eject. The eruption may end with an eruption with extreme prejudice. Ok that is probably a seriously dorky way to put it. Is looking like the end will come with a catastrophic explosion and the collapse of the volcano itself. This is what John Seach has to say.

Continuous eruptions are occurring at Chaitén volcano in Chile. The airfield at Chaitén town has been covered by ash and water, and is currently not able to be used. Ash and pumice is floating northwards along the Chile coast. The bay near Chaitén contains run-off from rivers with a milky-green colour. A large amount of sediment has blocked river channels, and lahars will continue to overflow river edges. Over the past two days there has been a marked change in seismic activity at the volcano. Earthquake swarms indicate fracturing of the main conduit, and possible ascent of magma towards the surface. Increasing pressure from magma is creating a potential explosion hazard, and collapse of the dome, generating pyroclastic flows.


There was already a 3km wide caldera. So we know this volcano has produced a caldera forming eruption in the past. The last eruption was 9,000 years ago. There could be a significant magma chamber under this volcano. Unfortunately nobody knows. I think we are going to find out in the next week or two what this system had built up over the thousands of years. If/When this volcano collapses it could produce a catastrophic explosive eruption that results in whatever was built up under this thing being ejected into the atmosphere in a great hurry.

When the dust settles there will likely be nothing left of the system and it may be a long time before it erupts again. Is this going to be another Krakatau? Or worse and be another Tambora?

Current Active Volcanoes,

A bit more than usual for my liking.

Unlike usual most seem to be on the verge of a large eruption and many many are active, what with the recent seismic activity too…

Lets start from Antartic up through Australasia, Asia, Across Russia and Europe and to Africa, America’s and Pacific.

Mount Ruapehu About to Blow?
Vulcanologists said molten rock appears to be moving higher inside Mount Ruapehu in New Zealand, but it is unclear whether the mountain is about to erupt. "Elevated gas output, high lake temperatures and a volcanic tremor continue to indicate elevated 'unrest' at Ruapehu," GNS Science warned on Tuesday

Thats 34 active volcanoes!!

31 of them seem to be becoming more active or are hovering on full eruptions, a definate pattern if you ask me, and centered on the autralasia, pacific ring of fire... all linked to the chinese tectonic plates.

According to Seach at Volcano Live the volcano Chaiten is still erupting. This makes three straight weeks.

Eruptions continue at Chaitén volcano in Chile. A dome is forming in the active crater, with sporadic explosions and pyroclastic flows. Seismic activity consists of swarm of hybrid events which indicates movement of magmatic fluids and gases, low and high frequency earthquakes. The alert level remains at the highest rating, RED.


Any bets as to how long this will continue?

And they just had a nice size earth quake in LOS LAGOS, CHILE
Maybe some thing to do with the volcano

Awsome Pictures! That is some bad azz freaky looking stuff there! The first few pics look like a giant fire breathing dragon!

The Los Lagos, Chile quake is about 100 to 120km (or so) from the volcano. I think that would be a bit far to be related.

Looking at the big picture i personaly think 120 km is nothing

When you look at the 7.8 earth quake in China was felt in Beijing over 1500km from Sichuan province.

I might be just looking too hard

Yes i understand that the one in Chile was smaller

Mount St Helens has been quiescent for 6 months now, but there was some activity in the skies above it last night..

Chile's Llaima volcano is again on red alert, Lava was spewing a few days back and has yet to calm,

And also the words most active volcano in Hawaii’ the Kilauea volcano has also been spewing lava,

There are currently 37 volcanoes erupting and earthquakes are numerous, there is ice melting at the North Pole and I think scientist are clueless as to what is really happening. This should be headline news.

As I suggested in the thread I started

My father has been flown out to Mt Baker in US - he is a prominant UK vulcanologist - this is a project for the USGS. He was flown out urgently.

Full story in my thread -

Not sure if anything has happened as a result of these volcanically but there were two 5+ magnitude quakes at anak krakatoa today.

Here is a proper link for you:

Impending earthquake/Volcanic Activity Calif/USA

As you can see from my post on this page above I do watch these things, and Volcano's have been up this year.... But worldwide not in the US.

Yellowstone is quiet and deformation or uprising is down from recent.

Most of the cascades seem to have less activity now than in the last 10 yrs.

As I posted on your thread linked above, there is nothing happening of much at the moment in the USA Hawaii yes and Alaska yes but not the Cascades, Yellowstone or Rainer etc...

I posted the recent seismic activity for your areas of concern on your thread above.

To add of real concern at the moment is Indonesia again close to where the boxing day Tsunami was generated as :

Volcano Soputan
Level 2 alert Erupting

very close by:

Volcano Ibu
Level 3 erupting

both have had the following seismic events very close to!!!

5.5 11 December, 2008 at 14:23:42 UTC
Depth 50 km (31.07 miles)
32.90 km (20.44 miles) NE of Pulau Mayu, Propinsi Maluku

Today and Just now:

6.1 (Strong) 11 December, 2008 at 21:40:51 UTC
Depth 158 km (98.18 miles)
35.73 km (22.20 miles) W of Sinombayuga, North Sulawesi

The recent eruptions further south by New Zealand etc and the basic increase in activity in the Asian/Pacific ring of fire is troubling with the seismic events too...

But the USA (except Alaska/Hawaii) is as quiet as a doormouse at the moment.
