Absolute rubbish! Basic state = no activity.
As stated by the thread. Please check before giving out flase alarm bells.

More volcano doom... and BIG ONE.

Major eruption of Mt. Baekdu ‘possible’

The government is paying attention to the possibility of a major eruption of Mt. Baekdu, the 2,744-meter dormant volcano on the border between North Korea and China, which experts here and in China claim has shown signs of becoming active.

This is the first time that the KMA has commented on dealing with a possible volcanic eruption of the tallest mountain on the Korean peninsula that could devastate the ailing North Korean economy and have a great impact on South Korea, China, Japan and Russia.

“Baekdu could erupt anytime soon,” said Yoon who has monitored the mountain for changes. “A variety of indicators are backing this scenario. The thing we should try to predict is when. It's clear it's imminent.”

The geologist speculated that an eruption could take place in a couple of years.

According to historical records, major activity on Baekdu in the 940s created a caldera on its peak, whose circumference is nearly 14 kilometers with an average depth of 213 meters and a maximum of 384 meters. Volcanic ash from this eruption has been found as far away as the southern part of Hokkaido, Japan, according.

If it does happen, North Korea is truly screwed.

Hmmm What an interesting twist of fate that would be..Hopefully the entire empire of kim is crushed under a lava rock.

Indeed! very interesting twist of fate, I particularly took notice of this part of the article:

"On Oct. 1, 2006, a Russian satellite found the surface temperature of the mountain notably higher than before. The finding came just days after North Korea conducted an underground nuclear test in its northern territory, which could have been a catalyst reactivating magma flows, according to analysts.

This was picked up earlier in the thread (that is not a complaint) by alysha and there is quite good detail of the volcano. It is worth going back to the post to take a look.

I know I looked it all up at the time and got some great photos downloaded, but now I can't find them. Old age? :shk:

This is the lake in the crater at the top.

MELIMOYU Southern Chile 44.08°S, 72.88°W; summit elev. 2400 m

ODVAS-SERNAGEOMIN reported on 8 June that the Alert Level for Melimoyu was raised to Green Level 2 due to increased seismicity during May, specifically starting with nine long-period earthquakes on 27 May. The next day six long-period earthquakes preceded two separate seismic swarms. The first swarm was located 2-12 km beneath the summit. Earthquakes in the second swarm were located 7-14 km S of the summit at depths no greater than 15 km. All earthquakes were M 2.5 or less.

I can't get on to the site however. It seems that the Chilean seismic service might be in the middle of an upgrade to their web site.

No quakes were reported on USGS so I assume that the quakes referred to were all under 4.5

Just thought I would let you folks know that there is a potentially interesting thread on Icelandic Volcanoes just been started.

It is only just getting under way but could be good.

Sorry not with you. All what activity near Jan Mayen?

I can't find anything for the last 7 days. It is on the NAR of course so you might expect the odd few quakes/volcanoes/doom/disaster/extinction etc!

Papua New Guinea volcano, Manam - beautiful image




Papua New Guinea’s Manam Volcano released a thin, faint plume on June 16, 2010, as clouds clustered at the volcano’s summit. The Advanced Land Imager (ALI) on NASA’s Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) satellite took this picture the same day.


The 16th June, when it released the plume, was the day of the big 6.6 in the area, I believe.

You folks might be interested in this thread. It is a specialist thread about Volcanoes in Iceland rather than a specific volcano and looks to me as if it might develop into a really good source. It was started by an Icelander.

Just in case you have not seen it.

"2 Kamchatka volcanoes stirring"

www.upi.com...

"MOSCOW, July 3 (UPI) -- Two of the active volcanoes on Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula have been sending plumes of ash as much as 5 miles into the air, scientists said Saturday.

No warnings had yet been issued about air traffic in the area, RIA Novosti reported. Volcanic ash can damage aircraft engines, and an eruption in Iceland earlier this year caused chaos for air traffic in Europe and on trans-Atlantic routes.

Kamchatka, part of the Pacific Ring of Fire, has 29 active volcanoes."

What about the oil volcano?

Since you have not stated your meaning it is a bit difficult to answer. The closest I can think of to an oil volcano is the tar mounds underwater off the coast of California. These are quite large, but are not strictly volcanoes.

If however you are meaning the disaster in the Gulf then I am afraid you will not find any information in this thread, as this thread is Volcano Watch, and the Gulf oil spill is a man made disaster and not a volcano.

You will find masses of information connected to the disaster in the Deepwater Disaster Forum
