Rinjani volcano expels ash cloud 4,000 feet

JAKARTA, Indonesia – “An active volcano on Indonesia's Lombok Island has spewed lava and hot ash nearly 4,000 feet (1,200 meters) into the sky but poses no immediate threat to local villagers. Surono, director of Indonesia's Volcanology Agency, said the Tuesday eruption followed four smaller eruptions on Friday. Surono said the nearest village is several miles (kilometers) away from the 7,795-foot (2,376-meter) Mount Barujari and is not threatened. Surono, who uses only one name, said Barujari has shown mild activity for the last two years. Indonesia is the world's largest archipelago nation. It is located on the so-called Pacific "Ring of Fire," an arc of volcanoes and fault lines encircling the Pacific Basin.” -Winnepeg Press © photo AP

The world's going quake crazy...

Our weekend Press magazine's main article was about Taupo - our New Zealand volcano - which is one of the supervolcanoes of the world... as usual, the words "overdue", "catastrophic" made good use of

So I had been posting some of these on My what's happening in Washington thread, but I'm thinking I should share them here!

As you are all most likely aware, we have had a little flurry of quakes off the shore Oregon and several at Mt. Hood. What you wouldn't see unless you specifically looked (because they are micro quakes) is that Rainier hasn't been all that quiet either.

I found some great maps showing a 10 year trend for the volcanos, with depth/mag. I think they are very interesting and a bit scary. As you can see by them, they are both experiencing (IMO) swarms.

Check them out!

10/05/14 14:32:24 46.85N 121.75W 3.3-0.4 AC



I'm not saying that these are indicators for an erruption or anything, I mean they are both active volcanos.....but I think it is worthy of noting. I know that I am at least keeping a closer eye on them until things settle back down!

Ibu volcano in Indonesia may have just received a jolt - please correct me if you think I'm wrong. According to EMSC a 4.2 earthquake just struck in Halmehera , not bang on top of it but possibly close enough.

In any case this volcanoe's status is already level 2 - erupting.

keep an watch on the italian volcano's...
especcialy the vesuvius and the undersea meesili......

I found it weird that there have been so much tidal waves ( 8 to 10 mtr waves ) in the mediterrain sea last months...
knowing the fact that the flanks of the meesili are crumbling douwn with an full magma chamber underneath.. as was discouverd lately i think that it could be an reason for such kind of waves...

also vesuvius is becoming some unrest .. looking at the seismic data's...

www.ov.ingv.it...

look at that site you will find the helicorders for vesuvius / mathese / flegrei (super volcano) / and Ichias...for the last one was also an warning given out some weeks ago....

I wonder if the recent large Algerian quakes might be resulting from some action under the Med?

Four volcanoes overdue for an explosion: any of which will create more havoc than Eyjafjallajokull.

1. KATLA (Iceland)
Last erupted: 1918
Effects of a major eruption: If Katla goes off, its eruption will be 10 times stronger than Eyjafjallajokull's. Katla's larger ash plume would shoot higher in the air and spread over larger areas of Europe for a longer period, with much more devastating effects on air travel and economic trade. An eruption could tip Europe's economy — perhaps even the world's — back into severe recession or a depression.
Likelihood: Fairly high. The two volcanoes, only 12 miles apart, tend to erupt in tandem, and Katla is slightly overdue in its 80-year cycle.

2. CUMBRE VIEJA (La Palma, Canary Islands)
Last erupted: 1971
Effects of a major eruption: In 2001, U.S. and British scientists warned that a major eruption of Cumbre Vieja could cause the enire western flank of the volcano to fall into the sea, creating a "mega-tsunami" in the Atlantic. Traveling at 500 miles per hour, it would wipe out Florida, coastal Brazil, and parts of Europe with waves up to 160-feet high.
Likelihood: The scientists say the "year to year probability" of a major eruption is low, but preparations should be taken anyway given the potentially cataclysmic damages.

3. MT. VESUVIUS (Italy)
Last erupted: 1944
Effects of major eruption: Famous for wiping out Pompeii and Herculaneum in 79 A.D., Vesuvius would do much greater damage today. About 3 million people live near the volcano, 600,000 of them in the "red zone." An eruption would kill at least 8,000 people and cause more than $24 billion worth of damage, according to Willis Research Network, which just named Vesuvius the most dangerous volcano in Europe. The ash would change weather patterns in Europe and leave the Naples area a "lifeless desert."
Likelihood: Scientists say Vesuvius is overdue for an explosion.

4. POPOCATÉPETL (Mexico)
Last erupted: 2000
Effects of a major eruption: The third-tallest active volcano in the Northern Hemisphere, Popocatépetl is only 40 miles west of Mexico City and its 18 million inhabitants, and 30 miles east of Puebla, a city of two million. A large eruption could send deadly mudslides into the populous valleys below, creating "catastrophic" loss of life.
Likelihood: After an 80-year dormant period, Popocatépetl is showing signs of activity.

Exciting news. I love it when we as humans, evolved from a microbe in a pool of slime, get to realise that we are unable to control a single thing around us when our reliance on our money and things that 'make the world go round' is disrupted by nature to an extent that which we rely on collapses.

I believe not in evolution as I think thats stupid, but I look forward to the chaos of the future without fear or trepidation. Not that I'm trying to will it on, just that it is inevitable and therefore we will see the true security of people revealed.

Just a quick question with hopefully a quick reply?
Right, correct me if im wrong but on the thermal image, yellow IS hot right? Or am i totally wrong here?
Because if yellow-white is hotter, then why is the land infront showing much higher temperatures than the actual plume?
eldgos.mila.is...

I have noticed over the last few days the ice in the valley melting and also steam coming from the ground.
Today however in the bottom left of the volcano a hot spot has moved from left to right?
Am i right Yellow hot?

I believe it looks that way because of course the ground is exposed to day light // sun light, but quote me on that! I was wondering this also and its the only conclusion I could come to.

If i am right, is this common ? Surely that would mean the magma/lava was very close to the surface?
Also, is moisture in the ground capable of been evaporated to an extent when it turns back from vapour to liquid upon reching the surface? and cause small streams?

But does this mean that there is something bigger on the cards? The camera seems to be sitting on the edge of a huge reservoir?

Forget those



There is a much more serious possibility afoot.

There have been two quakes right ON Hekla. Hekla does not have earthquakes normally.

Last time there was a swarm there she erupted within the hour. Heads down folks, we might be in for a wee bit more ash! (And I am being serious)

I am not trying to be alarmist but........
maybe baby!

Make that very high but probably not for a year or so.

Precautions? Sand buckets one , head sticking in for the use of? Only a scientist could make a daft statement like that.


3. MT. VESUVIUS (Italy)

However there are several underwater volcanoes around Italy that are just as if not more likely.


4. POPOCATÉPETL (Mexico)
Last erupted: 2000
Likelihood: After an 80-year dormant period, Popocatépetl is showing signs of activity.


Always my favourite name since a school child in Mrs Noah's class.
Possibly no more than normal? It is never completely silent.

Mm slight contradiction there however, whilst I agree, I would not be wishing that on anyone. If it all goes off we are talking middle ages survival and very few people are equipped mentally or otherwise to deal with that.

You may think you are (people that is not you personally) but actually if you analyse it all, do you know how to spin. weave, make soap, tan skins, card wool, make charcoal, herbal remedies, which plants are edible/poisonous etc? There is a huge long list of things that 95%, no probably 99% of people do not have the knowledge or experience to deal with. This is why the FEMA camps will be full.

Hey , just thought Id post because well, it's easily noticable, anyway.

There's been an earthquake at near the peak of just about every volcano in iceland today, including, loki, grimsvotn, krafla, the fissure up north and one near the side of katla. I don't know if any of this is an indication, i just thought it was interesting, any thoughts, ideas?
