There is a big SO2 plume coming from what looks like northern Iran.

either they havejust been bombed,or they have done an above ground nuclear test,or a major industrial accident has occured, neer Tabriz.
there are no volcanos in that area according to google.
see map from this link

Sulfur dioxide is usually from geologic processes not nuclear.

SO2 is Sulfur dioxide.

Which comes from volcanoes.

The location fits the description of mt Sabalan in iran.

Cut from wiki:

Sabalan (Persian/Azerbaijani: سبلان) is an inactive stratovolcano in Meshkinshahr Ardabil province of northwestern Iran. It is the third highest mountain in Iran with a permanent crater lake formed at its summit. Sabalan has a ski resort (Alvares) and different tourist areas such as the Sarein spa. The mountain is known for its beautiful vistas, including the Shirvan gorge, where few climbers ever venture.

But..Is this picture for real? It is listed as an extinct volcano. Two volcanoes with such long dormacy going of at the same time almost? Nabro and this one?

Sabalan is a large andesite stratovolcano, the second highest volcano in Iran after Mount Damavand. The volcano is quite old, as its rocks have been dated to 5.6–1.4 million years. Some references state that volcanic activy continued into the Holocene, less than 10,000 years ago.

The summit region has several peaks exceeding 4,500 metres (14,800 ft), primarily along a southwest-northeast trending ridge. The highest point 4,811 metres (15,784 ft) is at the northeast end of the ridge, and is separated from the 4,620 metres (15,160 ft)+ group of southwestern summits by a 4,190 m (13,750 ft) col.

The mountain is located in a continental climate with hot, dry summers and extremely cold, snowy winters. Precipitation falls primarily as snow in late autumn, winter, and spring, and is sufficient to sustain seven glaciers near the summit above 4,000 metres (13,000 ft)

Seems like it's either Sabalan or Sahand volcanoes.

Very interesting considering the Eritrea eruption.

surprise attack ?

Extinct

Extinct volcanoes are those that scientists consider unlikely to erupt again, because the volcano no longer has a lava supply. Examples of extinct volcanoes are many volcanoes on the Hawaiian – Emperor seamount chain in the Pacific Ocean, Hohentwiel, Shiprock and the Zuidwal volcano in the Netherlands. Edinburgh Castle in Scotland is famously located atop an extinct volcano. Otherwise, whether a volcano is truly extinct is often difficult to determine. Since "supervolcano" calderas can have eruptive lifespans sometimes measured in millions of years, a caldera that has not produced an eruption in tens of thousands of years is likely to be considered dormant instead of extinct.

That volcanos magma chambers are plugged full of solid rock like granite,its impossible according to volcano experts for an extinct volcano to breach like this.

Ilvar Khorstoon on June 13, 2011, 1:41 PM

@Lava Flow – Yes there are two bad volcanoes right next to Christchurch. However they are very old Miocene volcanoes. Partially yes there could be a connection between them and these swarms, but it is quite improbable they are waking up. More probable these volcanic buildings are just “setting down”.

For such old volcanoes to come up again, magma needs to break up through the remains of the magma chambers. And you know what is an old, frozen to death magma chamber? A huge near-monolithic chunk of hard granite.

Rob James on June 14, 2011, 8:22 AM

It has to be nuclear or a massive industrial accident. I can’t for the life of me see that VAAC would oversee this SO2 event across a major air-route into the middle East not only for domestic air travel but military also. This ‘plume’ matches the one coming from Eritrea if volcanic, and satellite/ground data would have already confirmed it to be volcanic in nature.

Since it seems like volcanic activity I can't help but think something happened from the bottom of the crater lake. Perhaps something frozen in the ice melted.
Or perhaps 2012 is drawing near so we get a new volcano.

What is the other country?

It looks like Ethiopia has been bombed also?

this volcano has ben extinct for millions of years,it should nothave gone off,unless the LEMONS went and did a test of their A-bomb under its mountain like pakistan did several years back.
Onlythis time they may have blown open the magma plug and rekindled the extinct supervolcano back to life?

This band of SO2 seems more from Azerbaijan. Note that the pic is cut in bands so we may well be missing the focal point where this may coming from.

Meanwhile SO2 does not come only from volcanoes and nukes. A large part of SO2 is anthropogenic. Fires? Possible and some industrial fires may create serious plumes. However, on MODIS, I didn’t see nothing, either natural or anthropogenic that would correlate to such emission.

Meanwhile Azerbaijan is a large oil producer and some oil there is high in sulphur, which is a quite obnoxious by-product. But it is quite hard to think they could be burning that much sulphur.

Iran testing nukes? Near these two happy fellows and their Nagorno-Karabakh, two steps to the madman of Georgia? Well, before Obama blinks twice, the whole Russian Army would be just at the border with Iran and Hell with any realpolitiks or political correctness. Besides, Iranians know about that and are much more rational than some may think (but yes they have some crazies there).
