New thread on ATS about a possible upcoming eruption,

Volcanic Eruption about to happen in Saudi Arabia?


Rumblings from the direction of extinct volcanoes in Al-Ais, which was hit by a series of tremors over the last couple of weeks, sent villagers in the area into a state of near panic in the early hours of Thursday.

At the moment, there are 4 volcano's capable of producing super-eruptions (VEI 6 and greater) showing pre-eruption activity.

To keep an eye on these are for sure, advisable.

KRAKATAU Location: Indonesia Lon:6.1° S Lat: 105.4° E
POPOCATÉPETL Location: Mexico Lon: 19° N Lat: 98.6° W
RABAUL Location: Papua New Guinea Lon: 4.3° S Lat: 152.2° E
SANTA MARIA Location: Guatemala Lon: 14.8° N Lat: 91.5° W


Any eruption from these with a VEI 6 or greater would change the landscape of our day to day lives and, most likely, usher in a cooling event to the next ice age.

This is just from May 15th through Today May 17th

I would expect, based on this to see more movement of magma and a few more volcanic eruptions in the Alaska area.

There is speculation that the earthquake activity in Saudi Arabia is due to volcanic activity...

Volcanism Wordpress May 19th

"UPDATE 20 May 2009: Dr Erik Klemetti’s latest post on the Saudi Arabian earthquakes is here. This morning (this post is published at 07:38 UTC) the USGS is listing six earthquakes in the area occurring between 19:50 UTC on 17 May and 20:35 UTC on 19 May: the largest is a magnitude 5.7 event at 17:35 UTC on 19 May. There are reports of large-scale evacuations and of aftershocks and ‘a large crack in the earth’, and unconfirmed accounts of gas emissions, ’smoke’, and changes in well water – all very suggestive, but there is a lack of hard evidence. Dr Klemetti notes:"

I don't want to start a new thread so I am using this one for this post. Ecuador has several active volcanoes and I was wondering if anybody has any information about whether the volcanoes are more active than usual or not?

The reason I ask is because I had a rather vivid dream last night about a magnitude 9.1 earthquake hitting Ecuador.
In the dream, I was helping my girlfriend pack because she is moving. She moves at the end of June, so that is when the dream would be taking place.

For what it is worth, I never have accurate dreams and this is 99.9999% just a dream. But on the 0.00001% chance this is something, I want it recorded somewhere so this forum seems like the right place.

Anyone see any volcanic activity in Costa Rico? Particularly the Northwest part? I go there on vacation for 8 days this coming Monday. If there is "activity" I may have to bring my 500x lense and hopefully pop off some good photo's.

Sarychev Peak volcano in Russia, Lots of smoke is comming of this one, and is disrupting flights from Vancouver that our Asia bound,


Airlines that might be affected are Air Canada, Air China and China Eastern out of the Vancouver airport.


Air Canada said in a release Monday that volcanic activity at Sarychev Peak, a remote volcano in Russia's central Kuril Islands, is the source of the trouble.


Delays or cancellations are possible for the next several days to major Asian destinations including Tokyo, Seoul, Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong.

An interesting read on possible findings

Alarm bells ring over volcano find


New Zealand geologist has triggered concerns about the possibility of another American "supervolcano" building under Mt St Helens.

GNS scientist Graham Hill has found big, connected channels of semi-molten rock beneath the southern Washington state mountain, which killed 57 people when it erupted in 1980, New Scientist magazine reports.

The discovery has revealed what may be an extraordinarily large zone of semi-molten rock, which would be capable of feeding a giant eruption.

The New Zealander led a team that set up sensors around Mt St Helens and found a column of conductive material that extends downwards from the volcano.

Yes, there have been 49 new volcano "waking ups" this year so far. It is a tremendous amount of activity happening, that has not been in the norm.

Some very interesting information has been coming out, about new volcanic areas too from scientist over the last few weeks.

Keep watching.

Could this be from all the ab-normal ice melts? More weigh on ocean crust, or is that too simple of a theory?
In any event seems like we had no spring in southern New England

San Cristobal Volcano in Nicaragua Is emitting Volcanic ash! This is one to keep an eye on for sure,

Last activity was in 2008 where some explosions where heard but not much else happened other that some expelling gas,

Its the most active volcano in Nicaragua that forms 5-member volcanic complex,

Just been confirmed that the San Cristobal Volcano is erupting



The ash is moving towards the west at or below a height of 5 miles. "Ash s moving to the west and west-northwest at 10-15 kts (11.5 - 17.2 miles) and extends about 40 nautical miles (46 miles) west of the volcano," the advisory read.




Towns near the area have been put on full alert,

Alaska's Cleveland Volcano erupts,


CHUGINADAK ISLAND, ALASKA (BNO NEWS) – Alaska's Cleveland Volcano briefly erupted on Friday evening, according to volcanologist on Saturday, but no one was thought to be at risk.

Friday's eruption was described as being brief and started at around 11.30 p.m. local time (0730 UTC). According to the Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO), satellite data indicated that the Cleveland volcano was producing an ash cloud to maximum altitudes of 15,000' to 20,000' (4.5 to 6.1 kilometers).

In response to the eruption, the center raised the aviation color code to Orange and the volcano alert level to "Watch."

"The lack of a real-time seismic network at Cleveland means that AVO is unable to track local earthquake activity related to volcanic unrest," a statement from the agency said. "Short-lived explosions with ash plumes that could exceed 20,000 ft above sea level can occur without warning and may go undetected on satellite imagery."

The volcano is located on the western half of Chuginadak Island, a remote and uninhabited island in the east central Aleutian Islands of Alaska. It is located about 45 miles (75 kilometers) west of the community of Nikolski, which has only a few dozen residents. Cleveland has seen an increase in activity over the past decade. Friday's eruption marks the third one this year, with earlier eruptions in January and June.

The volcano's most recent significant eruption began in February of 2001, when it produced three explosive events that created ash clouds as high as 39,000 ft (12 kilometer) above sea level. The eruption also produced a lava flow and a hot avalanche that reached the sea.
