15 Feb 11 – KOBLENZ, Germany - Beneath the calm waters of Germany’s famous Laacher See lake lies a potential killer that could devastate a good portion of Europe, says this article on The Extinction Protocol.

"Today the region near Koblenz was shaken by a swarm of 7 earthquakes beginning with a 4.5 magnitude quake which erupted at a depth of 6 km."

We think this is an indication, the article warns, that Germany's super-volcano is awakening.

"Across the planet, the giant dormant volcanoes, one by one, are being stirred from their long and ancient slumber. Earth is on the precipice of major geological change."

"The last time the Laacher See super-volcano erupted 12,000 years ago, it deposited ash across much of Europe. On July 30, 2010, a 5.6 earthquake struck the region and that likely signaled an awakening of the giant sleeping caldera."

"Scientists believe that a new eruption could happen at any time."

Verry interresting.

I did not even know that Germany had a super vulcano.

By the way, your link is not working.

I hope you can fix the link as i would like to read about this. Supervolcanos are nothing to take lightly - another to watch closely. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. S @ F

I can see the link just fine. Copy this part: ning.htm

Then clink the link provided, then paste the part you copied onto the end of the address. Sometimes ATS formatting cuts off the URL. It can only be corrected by the most experienced of MODS.

I would like to see something more substansial than this link first before jumping to any conclusions.
It's basically just speculation.

Here are some related articles that could shed some more light on this volcano:

So Germany's volcano is awakening. Yellowstone has been actively pushing up the crust. The New Madrid fault has been rumbling. Haiti, the Indonesian Tsunami, Chile....

The tectonics are rather active over the last few years.

Exactly, I'm not sure where they are getting the information from but then again the sources are called iceagenow, poleshift and extinctionprotocol

Clearly reliable.

The Laacher See caldera is not even rated a super volcano so at least they got the fear monger aspect correct. And the source on the usgs map is not actually at Laacher See, it's further east.
Granted though it's a big volcano, It's last eruption was VEI 6 which was bigger than Pinatubo but that was still a 6. For a super eruption it is generally considered to need a VEI of 8

I dont think its anything to worry about for now. Thats why i posted the Quakes in QuakeWatch 2011 and refrained from making a new Thread.

FYI those are the Quakes:

2011-02-16 22:09:45.0 50.31 N 7.69 E 15 ML 2.8
2011-02-15 12:15:45.0 50.38 N 7.87 E 10 ML 2.9
2011-02-14 22:34:49.0 50.38 N 7.85 E 10 ML 2.0
2011-02-14 19:35:09.0 50.28 N 7.79 E 10 ML 3.0
2011-02-14 17:30:32.0 50.38 N 7.83 E 2 ML 2.1
2011-02-14 17:23:35.0 50.13 N 7.45 E 15 ML 3.7
2011-02-14 13:38:34.0 50.38 N 7.86 E 2 ML 2.5
2011-02-14 12:50:44.0 50.35 N 7.84 E 11 ML 3.2
2011-02-14 12:43:11.0 50.38 N 7.75 E 6 ML 4.5

Those don´t include the smaller ones though. Even if the amount and Time of Aftershocks is a little odd for this Area,its nothing serious yet. PuterMan said so


Edit: Here is a link to the recent Activity in the Area. Nothing serious,really

Thanks, I was looking for a German site for verification.
Seems like it was a good 50km's away from Laacher See.

Yes,but you have to remember that the Magma-Chamber could be located under the Plate. Depending on how much and in which direction the Plated moved in the last 12k Years,it could erupt in a different Spot than last Time.

At least thats how i understand it,and i understand very little about this

Easy all.
This is just fear monging.

We regularly have quakes around here, nothing to worry about.
As for the Laacher See it's part of what we could call the Eifel region and nurished by the Eifel hotspot.

And yes,
we also have our share of volcanoes here. ;-)
(I live in Luxemburg if you wonder)

If you want a bit more info you can always start here at this wiki link.

en.wikipedia.org...

And if anything is going to happen around here, I will inform you all and take nice, pretty pictures.

I must be dumb and dense..I didn't even know Germany had a Super Volcano, the odd thing is I have been up in that area several times (lived there for 5 years). I hope this doesn't happen to them.

And for PuterMan and others ;-)
Here is a very interresting piece of paper about the Eifel Hotspot.
Carefull as this is tech stuff. ;-)

That is how it works, but on a much larger timescale. Typical plate movement is usually compared to fingernails, that is at most around an inch per year (or 2.5 cm, if you like metric/SI units). At a speed of 2.5 cm per year, that comes out as about 300 metres in total.

But, for examples where this happens, the best examples would be Hawaii and Yellowstone. If you can get an overlay to see it in Google Earth, Yellowstone's Mantle Plume has been going a while.

I have heard that Lacher See is dormant, but potentially active, like Yellowstone. There is activity going on constantly. I doubt though, there will be an eruption there in our lifetime, but hey, anything is possible
