On Friday, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology warned visitors and tourists against venturing near Taal’s crater after they (Phivolcs) had noted increased carbon dioxide levels in the area. Taal is a major tourist attraction. But Phivolcs head Renato Solidum Jr. said carbon dioxide levels in March were more than four times what they were last year. “Masyadong mataas ang carbon dioxide na lumalabas sa kanyang crater. Last year 1,000 tons per day, tumaas itong taon. Since January, 2000 tons per day. At sa March, 4,600 tons per day (The levels of carbon dioxide at the crater area are very high. Last year, the levels reached 1,000 tons a day. This rose to 2,000 tons a day in January. But in March, the levels went further up to 4,600 tons a day)," Solidum said in an interview on dzBB radio Friday.
AGI) Palermo - There has been a concerted series of explosions and landslides on Stromboli. Over the last 24 hours, monitors at the Vesuvian Observatory have picked up fifteen seismic signals associated with mild landslide events, all along the Sciara del Fuoco (Stream of Fire). Most of these events were follow-ons to the explosions and can therefore be attributed to rolling debris
BEND, Ore. -- According to the United States Geological Survey, Newberry Volcano is one of the volcanos that may erupt in the next 100 years.
The 50,000 acre Newberry National Volcanic Monument located south has been generally quite since scientists started watching it, but activitiy could be picking up and soon.
The event coincided with the departure of a South Korean delegation to the North's city of Gaeseong earlier in the day to discuss the volcanic nature of Baekdu Mountain on the North Korea-China border. Professor Yun Sung-hyo, an expert on volcanoes and one of the presenters, said the mountain may well erupt.
14 Apr 11 - A strong explosive eruption of Bezymianny volcano on Kamchatka began last night raising the alert code to RED for the region, says meteorologist Joe Bastardi.
With preliminary reports of ash at least to 33,000 feet, the volcano's activity could affect international and low-flying aircraft, and climate.
Bezymianny was thought to be dormant before the major eruption of 1955/56. That eruption may have played a role in the turn to colder in the late 1950s. It has been intermittently active since along with many others on the very tectonically active Kamchatka Peninsula.
If this eruption turns out to be significant, it would be the fourth straight year with high latitude volcanoes. Recall last year the Iceland volcano eruptions of Eyjafjallajökull caused enormous disruption to air travel across western and northern Europe - the highest level of air travel disruption since World War II.
