Nabro has settled down since yesterday midday. I do not think this will remain, expect a new series of eruptions soon. I think to make a video with all I know and can find about Nabro; this was a very interesting incident; more so I think than most people will realize. For the present we can look at other new exciting developments; Taal and Iceland.

Although ATS was quick on the run, unfortumately we were beaten by Earthquake-Report.
Might be time of day in their favour.

First to report the original earthquake, highlighting abnormality:

(Keyword is abnormality not first EQ observation!)
Earthquake-report = 16h11 UTC
ATS = Jude11 at 20h38 UTC

First to report the potential volcanic eruption:

Earthquake-report = 20h33 UTC
ATS = angelchemuel = 22h33 UTC

First to establish NABRO as the Spot:

Earthquake-report = 23h16 UTC
ATS = PutterMan at 00h44 UTC

We obviously have to name the loosers as well:
Second from the back were Main Stream Media, though many of their data still wrong i.e. Dubbi 'eruption' still reported this morning. All the way at the back, way out - Governments! This is a shocker.

JEEZ, Shenon, you were quick of the post there!
Yes, this seems to be the start of a new eruption; this time expected.
I do not see anything on SAT photos - yet.

One interesting thing about these North African volcano's is their material. They do not have the common pumice kind of porious rocks; theses are more Obsidian - molten silica; same stuff you use for glass. Off course this makes the ash also more risky for aircraft.

That is one of the reasons this volcano would probably become a textbook study. The 'glass' is sealing the vent, then at some time the pressure builds up too high and sudden bang- broken obsidian - out comes the vocanic stuff. As soon as the velocity of the magma reduces a bit, the obsidian cools too quickly; the vent chokes off. New quake, opens up with new explosive eruption.

Nice exciting stuff!

EDIT: On SAT24.com in IR mode there is a brief flash of what looks like it could be hot ash cloud 08h30, 08h45 and 09h00; but this is quite a bit South from Nabro - possibly Aruku or even a little more South.
I can't get access to MODIS today.

NEW ERUPTION!



Shiveluch volcano in Kamchatka, NE Russia erupted this morning around 08h40 UTC

Location: LAT 56.658 LON 161.380
Elevation about 3,196 meters.

Ash cloud expected to reach about 9,000 meters; this volcano is under ice and similar in eruption effects as the Icelandic volcano's. At present weather seems a bit upset so I can not yet determine what the wind is going to do.

This volcano series is notorious for Sulphur Dioxide release into atmosphere.

This is a continuation of eruptions that started August 1999.
This latest series of smaller eruptions since May 2011 has already affected flights in Eastern Russia.

NEW ERUPTION - FIRST on ATS.



Mount Shibiris in Northern Somaliland has erupted last night.
This is the sat picture from MODIS Aqua where I saw this eruption.
Mt. Shimbiris has not erupted in known history, though the Earth there is very dark.
Actually it is not even known as a volcano!

Rocks seems burned but those are dated form Mountain forming millions of years ago.
Pre holocene; no signs of recent magma flows

Locals calls this the "Gates to Hell'
Location is about 680 km from NABRO.

The Rift of Aden is joining up with the East African Rift that runs through Djibouti and possibly linked to the NABRO volcano eruption and quakes.

No earthquake directly associated with this eruption, though there were a few small quakes about 140 km to the North from here in the Gulf of Aden.

Mt. Shibiris eruption 17 June 2011 time estimated around 10h00 to 11h00 UTC


Google Earth view of location. Black ridge, locals calls this "The Gate to Hell".
In 2003 I visited some caves here where you could still smell smoke. They told me in the very old days those caves actually smoked - but thousands of years ago. There were absolute no signs of volcanic eruptions or magma flow there.

So... is it a big volcano... and do you think it'll be a major eruption... Thanks a lot.

Until now, it has not been know or considered a volcano!
Was just a mountain. Guess we need to change the name to Shibiris Volcano!

Nabro Update - Magma Flow



For the first time we can see exactly where the eruption took place and flow of magma.
My estimates for vent in original eruption was spot on.

I hope to get some High Res photos; then we can observe if other vents did open as wel.

NABRO Update from MODIS taken 17 June 2011 at 12h00 UTC.

Latest news on the eruption

Shiveluch volcano erupts in northern Russia

Shiveluch has had over 60 large explosive eruptions during the past 10,000 years. Catastrophic eruptions took place in 1854 and 1956, when a large part of the lava dome collapsed and created a devastating debris avalanche. The last significant eruption ocured in late May 2011 resulting in ash being sent to a height of 7.5 kilometres above sea level. The ejection was accompanied by an earthquake at the volcano that lasted more than 10 minutes.


Russia: Kamchatka Volcano Spews Ash To 10,000 Meters

According to scientists, the volcanic activity over the past two-three years has significantly altered the contour of the volcano with the crater increasing in size by 50% and the slopes becoming far steeper than before. Although the current eruption poses no immediate threat to nearby settlements, the ensuing ash fallouts could be hazardous to health and the environment.

Thanks for those nice pics. and update.

THAT looks like huge cloud of Sulphur Dioxide! Very BAD news.

If we´re talking about Russian Volcanoes,i have another one (or two),but both are active ones anyway,so thats normal behavior.

Kizimen, Karymsky volcanoes spew ash in Russia



Rising to an altitude of 7,795 feet, the Kizimen volcano is about 265 kilometers from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. Geologists estimate the volcano formed about 12,000 years ago.

One of 29 active volcanoes on the Kamchatka peninsula, Kizimen was violent in 1928 and 1929. It began to exhibit activity again in 2009.

The 4,875-foot Karymsky is the most active volcano of Kamchatka's eastern volcanic zone and a symmetrical stratovolcano, the academy spokesman said. Its activity increased dramatically in 1996 and still erupts periodically.

There are a number of volcanos active everyday of the year, all over the world.
Though interesting it is not so very strange and does not really affect anybody.

BUT - and this is a very big BUT:

When a volcano erupts, or new eruption it blows ash into the sky and often like this Russian volcanos - Sulphur Dioxide;
That is of importance to every person on earth - it will affect every living creature. Maybe only a little, maybe very big effect. When that ash cloud goes beyond 8,000 meters it imediatley gets picked up by the jet streams - then it can go intercontinental. We face serious climate changes and as you can see now on news - natural weather related disasters.

That all said: Some nice recent eruption photos here will also be very interesitng, welcome and appreciated. Let us see what we can learn from these fire spewing holes in the Earth.

I have been following the Kamchatka volcanoes since the Japan quake when three of them erupted. In fact before that i never heard of them or the place. There has been quite some activity on the peninsula since then, with some 'beautifull' eruptions.
They should get more media attention imo.

Kamchatka: 4 volcanoes on orange alert level

Not only the volcanoes but the place itself, the fauna and flora a must see, i've put it on my to do list (places to visit
)
I hope i'll have the chance to go before the peninsula 'blows'

How does the volcanic activity of the last 12 months compare with the annual averages of the last 50 years.


Please forgive me if this info has already been posted.
