this is a picture from the web cam earlier today.

never the less here are more things, from italian sites:

Not good for the moment as it is night, and we had a ash and later gas eruption.

Quake Data 3.6.0 Build 43 now available

This is sort of an interim as I had hoped to get other things done but I have to spend some time on something else for a while so it may be a few weeks before another release.

  • Separated the vulcanism items onto their own main menu item called Volcano!
  • Added more volcano cams (3 in Iceland alone and 2 on Etna) - Now 28+ cameras in total!!
  • You can now add additional web cams to a 'My Added Web Cams' menu. Go to 'Settings' > 'Cams' to set these up.
  • Added menu items for 'World Clock', 'Antipodes Map' and 'Convert Lat/Lon' on the Tools menu
  • Added menu items for EMSC and Indonesian earthquake info and UK and Pacific network webicorders access page in a sub menu on the renamed Quake Webs menu
  • Made the cam snagger read the image type and create a download of the same type.

Free as always. Go to the link in my signature to get it.

Coming next AutoDRM and USGS Updates as a Windows service

Oh, one important change. hen you LEFT click a menu for a web/cam it will load in your default browser, and if you RIGHT click it will load in the program. This is the reverse of the current system as the IE based web widget is not liking Java very much.

The help has not been updated - I will do that next release.

I'm not sure if this article has been linked here yet, but I supose if it has, it won't hurt to do it again!

This is regarding the Marsili volcano, the undergound volcano just off Italy. Pretty strong words coming from the head geologist over there.

Check this out!

This was just posted on RSOE:

An ash eruption occurred at the summit of Mt Etna volcano, Italy on 8th April 2010. The eruption occurred at the lower east flank of the Southeast Crater. The eruption increased the crater from 10 m to 50 m. The eruptions were preceded by a series of earthquakes at the Pernicana fault on 2nd April. This was the first time in 6 years that earthquakes occurred in this location on Mt Etna (NE flank). The largest earthquake was magnitude 4.2. Ground cracking occurred adjacent to Ragabo mountain hut. Mareneve road, which links the town of Linguaglossa to the tourist area of Piano Provenzana, was fractured in two locations. The earthquake focus was at a depth of 1 km, and surface fractures occurred over a distance of 1 km. At a location 1 km up slope from Ragabo mountain hut, there was vertical displacement of the ground by 20 cm.

Does it work on Ubuntu 9.10 (Linux) as I run my laptop on that OS.

The only way you can run it on Linux is with a Windows emulator. I believe these are available for Ubuntu

You should be able to get some information here (Ubuntu Virtualbox Community) and this is the link for the latest edition of Virtualbox from Sun.

Looks like they keep updating that page - worth noting to search out the "Ready to Rumble" video.

Great viewing - thanks for sharing.

My friends have just returned from Vanuatu and were horrified to find they had been taken up the volcano by a local guide when they were prohibited due to increased activity

I am watching "Volcano in New York".

Now, I have seen this before but I didn't recall that geothermal drillingcaused it to erupt.

ahhh hollywood!

Who are you? I do not recognise you.

Amazing how sometimes Hollywood gets it right. I thing it would be an interesting if time consuming exercise to find out all the thermal drilling sites and then compare quake frequency before and after operations started.

Any takers?

Eyjafjallajokull volcano, Iceland
A magnitude 3.5 earthquake hit Eyjafjallajokull volcano, Iceland at 3:32 pm on 6th April. A magnitude 3.2 earthquake hit the volcano this morning. Eruptions have been occurring at Eyjafjallajokull volcano since 20th March 2010.

Eyjafjallajokull volcano, Iceland
The crater at Fimmvörduháls mountain pass, Eyjafjallajokull volcano in Iceland has grown by 82 m in height since the start of the eruption on 20th March 2010. Lava now covers an area 1.3 square kilometers and is 10-20 meters thick. A total of 24 million cubic meters of lava has erupted from two craters, an average of 15 cubic meters per second. The original crater has stopped erupting, and activity is currently concentrated at the second crater located at a lower altitude. Lava is flowing west of Hvannárgil canyon at 1-2 kilometers per hour. Two tourists died of exposure while becoming lost as they drove back from the eruption.

Thanks for that. Just arrived in today to find this.

Eruptions! blog has a good picture.

This is a translation from Google of an Icelandic page (not very good)

I would say she is rocking and rolling looking at that. Tremor intensity on all traces is higher than during the original eruption, with the exception of Godabunga.

Looking at the quake map the 3.3 was right slap bang under Grímsvötn.

Info from Smithsonian

Grímsvötn, Iceland's most frequently active volcano in historical time, lies largely beneath the vast Vatnajökull icecap. The caldera lake is covered by a 200-m-thick ice shelf, and only the southern rim of the 6 x 8 km caldera is exposed. The geothermal area in the caldera causes frequent jökulhlaups (glacier outburst floods) when melting raises the water level high enough to lift its ice dam. Long NE-SW-trending fissure systems extend from the central volcano. The most prominent of these is the noted Laki (Skaftar) fissure, which extends to the SW and produced the world's largest known historical lava flow during an eruption in 1783. The 15-cu-km basaltic Laki lavas were erupted over a 7-month period from a 27-km-long fissure system. Extensive crop damage and livestock losses caused a severe famine that resulted in the loss of one-fifth of the population of Iceland.

Quake map for the area There seem to be a few just north of it as well.
