There aren't any news reports yet but someone at the eruptions blog on wired science has said that Lokon-Empung has erupted in Indonesia.

Wrong thread to ask that question I'm afraid. But the foam is a perfectly normal when seas get churned up by storms.

JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — A volatile volcano has erupted again in northern Indonesia, spewing smoke and ash that caused muddy rain to fall in nearby villages.

Local monitoring officer Farid Ruskanda Bina says Mount Lokon in northern Sulawesi province erupted Sunday afternoon as heavy rain fell around its cloud-covered crater.

He says the sound was heard 5 kilometers (3 miles) away but the height of the eruption was not visible.

Kudos to all you avid volcano watchers and to all of those on this thread.

So a question for you all volcano experts, is it normal for Long Valley to be having this much activity? I bet it is, so no worries. But I thought it better ask a dumb question, than to not know.

She is just breathing a little bit, right?

Thanks in advance!

As alysha.angel stated, I think this falls in the normal range for Long Valley, but there has definitely been an uptick in microquake activity.

Here is a graph of seismic activity for October:

(click image to enlarge)

Over the past 7 days, the Calvo Long Valley monitoring page shows 233 earthquakes.



There is also a small uptick in compressional strain at Devil's Postpile (just W of Mammoth Mtn) and Motocross station (E of Mammoth Mtn, on the caldera rim). dilatometers

There is signs of coming eruption in distant Australian volcano. It lies on sun-arctic territory of Heard island, 4100 km NW of Perth.



Australian volcano about to erupt?

ONE OF ONLY TWO active volcanoes in Australian territory is showing possible signs of eruption.

Satellite thermal imagery collected by NASA's Earth Observing System (EOS) during the past month indicates volcanic activity is occurring at Big Ben, a volcano located on remote Heard Island, about 4100km southwest of Perth, in the sub-Antarctic.

Thermal anomalies at Mawson's Peak, the 2745m summit of Big Ben, were documented this year on 21 and 24 September, and 10 and 19 October using infrared data provided by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), a key instrument aboard each of the two EOS satellites.

An image taken by one of the satellite's Advanced Land Imagers (ALI) on October 13 also shows a snow- and ice-free area at Mawson's Peak, indicating a possible hotspot in the volcano's crater.

"The satellites that volcano scientists use are basically weather and environmental satellites, and they provide up to two images per day over any given spot on Earth," says Dr Matthew Patrick, a research geologist at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory. "The satellites collect both visible wavelength images and thermal images. The thermal images, which are really designed to spot forest fires, respond well to the high surface temperatures common during volcanic eruptions."

I am not trying to derail this post, but I have not been here long enough to make a posting.
I know this is kind of crossing into another topic but I don't find one recent enough to place this comment and thought it to interesting to pass up.




StephenHannardADGUK and Alien Disclosure Group called it " ... an incredible UFO event over the Popocatepeti Volcano in Mexico,"


[url=http://www.examiner.com/article/ufo-descends-into-live-volcano-mexico]




"The estimated size of this object is 1Km by 200 meters or around 3,200 ft long, and 600 ft wide"


I would encourage everyone to take a look. I don't speak Spainish but they do say it is not a hoax.
If some one could interpret and comment, it would be helpful.

Two volcanoes in Philippines are showing signs of waking up. The bad boy is TAAL; now on alert level 1 after a few volcanic quakes. People are advised to remain more than 6 km distant from both volcanoes. Taal is only 60 km South from Manila. Potentially serious if erupts - TAAL is a high contend Sulphur blowing volcano; similar to Nabro.

very very weird......warning for the ruapehu and an eruption for the tongariro....
wats going on there...
for sure both volcano's are connected......the ruapehu stands the pressure from underneath ..so the magma found an easyer way by the tongariro?
that would make the ruapehu an tikking explosive timebomb....

NZ volcano Mt Tongariro erupts


NEW Zealand's Mount Tongariro volcano in the central North Island has erupted, sending a black plume of ash up to 2km into the air and forcing hundreds of hikers to be evacuated.

Hundreds of tourists - including 90 schoolchildren from Napier - were on the mountain when Tongariro erupted around 1.20pm local time.

Police are warning sightseers to stay away from the area in case of further volcanic activity.

The official GNS Science monitoring service issued a potential threat alert after the eruption at the volcano, which was the location for parts of The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

The volcano became active in August this year after lying dormant for more than a century.


She blew!!

Icelandic Grímsfjall volcano is showing some harmonic tremor, but there is no earthquakes yet. Its not strong, but definitely harmonic tremor, might be small eruption, or signs of glacier moving.

WELLINGTON - New Zealand tourism and government officials are hoping the still-smoldering crater on a central North Island volcano that erupted last week will draw visitors from around the world after the government announced plans Tuesday to reopen hiking trails around the mountain.

The announcement came a day after the government's Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences (GNS Science) lowered the volcanic alert level for Mount Tongariro from level 2, warning of minor eruptive activity, to level 1, which indicated volcanic unrest.


China Daily

I thought Mm, is this not a bit soon? Then I read.....


"Over the next week, the scenario considered most likely is that there may be further eruptions and these could occur with no warning," it added.


Nice one. Send in the tourists 'cos we NEED the cash!


"We see a lot of school groups visiting the area at this time of year and did not want too many to have to cancel. What a great opportunity this is for them to study an active volcanic area," Brown said in the statement.


/sarc Hell what does it matter if a few school kids get fried? God forbid they should cancel!!! They will all be spending money. /sarc off
