Almost all #quakes felt in Tokyo over last yr centered to E or N. This one was to W. Under live volcano" #Fuji


NHK: On Shindo scale strongest jolt was 5- in Fuji lakes area.


Shinkansen train svc resumes. No tsunami alert. Mt. Fuji hasn't erupted. #Japan #quake


#Quake swarm around Mt. Fuji a cause for apprehension? #Japan Met. Agency will hold news conf. about it at 0940 JST.


The quakes are continuing (smaller one now ~M3.3) near Mt. Fuji. #Japan


Hopefully not a sign of things to come, Japan has suffered enough.


Mount Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan at 3,776.24 m (12,389 ft).[1] An active stratovolcano[5][6] that last erupted in 1707–08,

It has a VEI of 5.

Because Cleveland is not covered by real-time seismic sensors, such explosions and their associated ash clouds may go undetected in satellite imagery for hours.

i thought that was strange.

Down here in New Zealand there seems to be some interesting activity on the Okataina Drum - Mount Tarawera en.wikipedia.org... The drum is here: www.geonet.org.nz...

There is no alert as yet - I'm not sure if this is the volcanic or environmental? But there has been one earthquake reported on the recent quakes page of Geonet which is where they list ones that are either significant or that they have had "felt reports" for. It seems to be reasonably close by and only 3km deep!


Reference Number: 3655442
NZDT: Wed, Feb 8 2012 8:30 pm
Magnitude: 3.5
Depth: 3 km
Details: 10 km west of Kawerau

Just thought I would post this here so we can all have a bit of a better understanding of Supervolcanoes...and therefore not get too worked up about the likes of Yellowstone etc.

Thanks for linking this article Angelchemeul.

I found the information concerning limits on magma chamber sizes, and subducting plate dip angles and their relationship to rates of mantle melt really helpful.
As you stated, the info in the interview might help calm a few nerves when it comes to inflation/deflation cycles at volcanoes like Yellowstone.

It looks as though some of the USGS Volcano Hazards Observatories websites have gotten a much needed facelift. Yay!
This link is to the main USGS Volcano Hazards page.

From here you can find the CVO, Cascades Volcano Observatory with its shiny new interactive map.
(They have broken the southern volcanoes out, and they are now found at the link below in California.)

And especially nice, IMO is the new CalVO California Volcano Observatory.
Now, it is possible, for example, to get a 24hr look at NCSN (Northern California Seismic Network) webicorders near Mt. Shasta, Medicine Lake, and Lassen Peak. It still doesn't seem to be available via IRIS, but I'll take what I can get.

Plus, the CalVO has pages for Ubehebe in Death Valley, Clear Lake Volcanic Field, and many others.
Huge improvement--Kudos to the USGS.

Tinakula in the Soloman Islands is blowing

Source: A very long blog title!


February 17, 2012 – Remote South Pacific Volcano Comes Back to Life: Tinakula is a small volcanic island in the South Pacific that has been caught doing some huffing and puffing this week by NASA satellites.


Note that this is but 300 miles from the 6.4 on the 14th.

Mount Kanaga in the Aleutians doing it's thing.

Mount Kanaga Volcano Exhibiting Explosive Activity


February 19, 2012 – Mount Kanaga Volcano Exhibiting Explosive Activity: A view looking west, at the 1,312 meter (4,304 feet) high Kanaga Volcano in eruption. Kanaga is located about 25 km (16 mi) west of the U.S. Navy installation and port on Adak Island in the Aleutian Islands. The volcano erupted intermittently through much of 1994, dusting the community of Adak at least once with fine ash.
The Alaska Volcano Observatory has raised the alert level for the Kanaga volcano, in the remote Aleutian Islands.

Mount Gamalama in Indonesia erupts

Mount Gamalama Volcano Comes Back to Life


February 19, 2012 – Mount Gamalama Volcano Comes Back to Life in the South-West Pacific in Indonesia: A major eruption at Mount Gamalama in North Maluku on Sunday night spewed volcanic ash 2,000 meters (6,560 feet) into the air and forced the closure of the airport in Ternate, the provincial capital.

Anyone else out there???

Continued harmonic tremor in Katla volcano which may well come to nothing but is worth keeping an eye on.

This may just be a hydro-thermal thing!


There are now two possible reasons why this is happening. This might be an increase in hydro-thermal activity in north part of Katla volcano. Second reason might be that this is magma moving around inside Katla volcano at depth, then out visible effects on the surface. That is earthquakes have not happened following this event to any extent. There have only been two registered earthquakes so far. There location is both poor and depth poorly located.

I'm out there (or so I've been told) And I'm reading, looking forward to more updates as and when they come. Thank you for your work

I was wondering if anyone else was watching Iceland.

I read the RSOE EDIS update just a bit ago, seems to be progressing rapidly, doesn't it?

I wonder if this could be related to the loud BOOM and shaking yesterday??
