This is something - we are witnessing a new Island being born - Bob is his name. Earth is amazing! Just wish Folks were safe and it did not effect their livelyhood

Latest...from earthquake report site

"Important Update 05/11 – 23:40 UTC :
Raymond Matabosch reports from his location at El Hierro that, following him, the Surtseyan Eruption phase has started. Burst of ash and water are ejected out of the sea every 30 to 40 minutes.

Update 05/11 – 22:40 UTC :
Our La Restinga human webcam has been evacuated too. She will spend the night with Joke at El Pinar.

Update 05/11 – 21:54 UTC :
What next ?
We expect the next phase to begin soon (a couple of hours) or later (days or even weeks) (a volcano does not show his cards). The present very strong harmonic tremor accompanied by powerful bursts who occur every 30 to 40 minutes, may sustain the process for some time to come.
If the current vents remain open, and if the bursts continue, the gases mixed with ash and steam will have to overcome the water column pressure. They almost did late this afternoon, and will probably continue trying to do so the next couple of hours. In the dark, and unless it is full moon, nobody will notice it (it is not a football stadium).
Once the pressure from below is strong enough to break the water resistance, fountains of steam mixed with ash will blow into the air. At first during the bursts (compare it with geysers) followed bu more continuous fountains.
If all this happens a few km out in the sea, the island will at max. get some ash showers.
These kind of shallow depth eruptions coming above the surface are called Surtseyan eruptions (named after the Icelandic Island formed the same way) or Capelinho’s eruptions (named after a similar eruption in 1957 at Faial, Azores).
At the lower part of this page one will find the explanation of the Capelinho eruption. The article written by Raymond Matabosh explains what will happen next in a very good way.
Please keep in mind that this is an attempt to predict what will happen, not a certainty."

Update from earthquake-report

Data Update 06/11 – 10:12 UTC :
Raymond has to leave his viewing point (on the Las Calmas sea) because of the bad and toxic air close to the coastline. He is currently withdrawing to another place on the island. This means that more and more gases are escaping from the jacuzzi vents.

Reports are coming in that the eruptive vent in the Las Calmas Sea is intensifying again. Harmonic tremor graphs indicate from the early afternoon on that activity is again on the rise. earthquake-report.com

Thanks for those pics.
It's amazing how the new island is forming.
From the drawing you posted, the vent, shaft of the volcano is at 150m deep.
That's a lot of lava just to reach the surface.
I wonder how it will look if this continues for some time...

I don't know much on volcanoes, but could it be that a new shaft is forming through and lava will pour out on the surface?
Or how does it actually works??

Here you go.

I'll give you a tip that helped me figure out how to add images and videos to posts. Go to a post that has a video embedded, and click quote. It will come up with the code that they entered to achieve their ATS wizadry.
In this case, you just copy everything after "/watch?v=" part of the youtube URL.

If the current vent stays active long enough, then it is possible that it will breach the surface. An example of this occuring is the newly formed volcanic island of Surtsey. It is this island that the current El Hierro eruption style is named after. Surtsey rose from water of about 130 metres depth, and erupted for many years to reach it's final size, although erosion has since diminished the islands size.

I'm not sure if the El Hierro eruption is likely to stay in this eruptive phase at the same vent long enough for an island to form, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Volcano-logical Institute confirms an increase in carbon dioxide emissions
Posted before 1 h ..

"The volcanological Institute of the Canaries (non-tip) confirmed the direction of the Civil Protection Plan for Volcanic Risk (Pevolca) a further increase in the diffuse emission of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere from the volcano of El Hierro, according to informed the Government of the Canary Islands in a statement."

"The Regional Executive notes that, according to data from non-tip, the measured emission rate has reached the "1218 ± 46 tonnes per day", which is the highest value observed since the beginning of magmatic reactivation takes place on the Island"

"Since last July 21 the non-tip has materialized over 7250 flow measurement of carbon dioxide diffuse through numerous scientific investigations carried out in "the whole island subaerial volcanic edifice" which covers an area of ​​278 square kilometers, and which have contributed a lot volunteers canaries. The purpose of scientific research is to contribute to the improvement and optimization of monitoring, since the gases are the driving force of volcanic eruptions."

"The registration made more than three months ago the rate stood diffuse emission of carbon dioxide in the "331 ± 16 tons per day," the regional government, adding that the average of the emanation is 345 tons per day. On October 6, prior to the underwater eruption that took place southwest of La Restinga rate reached "990 ± 49", which means it was 2.8 times higher than normal average. Recent results show that this figure is now 3.5 times higher than usual."

"The direction of Pevolca states that the diffuse emission of CO2 is one of the parameters of a volcanic eruption precursors, but it has to be evaluated in conjunction with other deformation, and seismicity depth, among other things. Also remember that "we are in an eruptive process underway in the south of the island, which generates greenhouse gas emissions in the Earth's surface."

Some graphic explanation, hope you find answer here intergalactic fire ..







www.montecruz.es...

The steam and ash column rose 20 meters above the sea ..
The current eruptive episode, recorded yesterday afternoon at 18:00 and 18:05 hours, had two episodes of subaerial in the header, each lasting approximately one minute ..

The former reached a height of approximately 20 meters above the sea surface and the emission gases consisted of fine particles that drove volcanic material. The second had the same behavior, although with less magnitude ..



After this M 3.9 at 18:25 magma find way out somewhere, internal pressure was released you can see here on graph ..

Interesting to know.
So this could go on for years and eventually form a whole new island.
6 of the 13 Canary Islands has a volcano, so probably they were all created by eruptions like we see today?
Those 6 islands also are the biggest of the Canary region.

Just an informative question.
How many time after the eruptions stopped on Surtsey, did they see fauna and flora on the island?
