Volanic Unrest Worldwide: Strong Eruption at Sakurajima volcano, pyroclastic flow, ashfall reported in Kagoshima, Japan

Posted in 2018, Earthquakes, Volcanoes with tags , , , , on June 17, 2018 by theboldcorsicanflame

There were eight events and five explosions at Minamidake crater from June 4 to 11. Crater incandescence was occasionally visible at night. Ash plumes rose up to 2 km (1.2 miles) above the crater rim, except during an event at 11:35 JST on June 10 which produced a plume that rose 3.5 km (2.1 miles). Tephra was ejected as far as 1.3 km (0.8 miles) from the crater between June 8 and 11.

The Japan Meteorological Agency maintains the alert level at 3 of 5 since February 5, 2016.

An intense explosive sequence took place at Stromboli volcano in Italy on the morning of April 24, 2018.

Posted in Uncategorized on April 25, 2018 by theboldcorsicanflame

The first explosion took place at 09:05 UTC and emitted abundant ash along with incandescent material and large lava blocks up to 250 m (820 feet) above the crater that fell in the summit area and along the Sciara del Fuoco, INGV said.

This explosion was followed by a second explosive event at 09:06 UTC and was characterized by a modest fountain.

The third explosion took place at 09:10 UTC with the launch of pyroclastic material of lower intensity, compared to the first explosion.

April 19th, 2018: Mount Io (Iwo-yama volcano) erupts for the first time since 1768, Japan

Posted in 2018 with tags , on April 19, 2018 by theboldcorsicanflame

  1. Iwo-yama volcano

Iwo-yama volcano also known as Mount Io and Mount Ioyama, located on the Ebino Highland and a part of Kirishimayama volcano group in Japan’s Kyushu, erupted at 06:39 UTC (15:39 JST) on April 19, 2018 for the first time since 1768.

The volcano ejected ash high into the air, forcing the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) to raise the alert level from 2 to 3 (of 5), restricting access to the volcano.

Today marks the first time JMA has raised the alert level to 3 for this volcano.
The agency said that it confirmed the scattering of volcanic rocks around the crater and added that it is possible that the volcanic activity will further increase.

Residents and tourists are cautioned against falling rocks within 3 km (1.8 km) and pyroclastic flows within 2 km (1.2 miles) from the crater. In addition, the agency called for people to be on guard over the possibility of mudslides after any rainfall, depending on how much ash fell from the volcano.
The last time this volcano erupted was in 1768, exactly 250 years ago, according to the JMA’s Fukuoka Regional Headquarters.

JMA raised the alert level to 1 on February 28, 2016, following an increase in shallow volcanic earthquakes. The alert was raised to 2 on February 20, 2018.

This is just the latest in a series of volcanic eruptions in the Kirishima mountain range. Mount Shinmoedake erupted in October 2017 for the first time in six years and has been active since with occasional eruptions.

China plans to grow flowers and silkworms on the dark side of the moon…….!

Insects, plants, potato seeds and arabidopsis—a small flowering plant belonging to the mustard family – will be taken to the Moon on board the Chang’e-4 lander and rover in December

 
China hopes to create a ‘mini biosphere’ on the dark side of the Moon, with flowers and silkworms sustaining each other as they grow on the lifeless lunar surface.

The unprecedented plan to create life in outer space is the most intriguing part of China’s lunar probe mission later this year, and could be a major boost for dreams that humans will one day live on the Moon.

The insects, plants, potato seeds and arabidopsis—a small flowering plant belonging to the mustard family – will be taken to the Moon on board the Chang’e-4 lander and rover in December.

They will be placed in an 18cm tall bucket-like tin made from special aluminum alloy materials, together with water, a nutrient solution, and a small camera and data transmission system.

A small tube will direct natural sunlight into the tin to help the plants and potato seeds grow. Although known figuratively as the “dark side” as it is unseen, the far side of the moon receives almost equal sunlight to the near side.

The next stage (…)

The ESA Just Discovered a Second Magnetic Field Surrounding Our Planet

How are we only seeing this now?

A trio of satellites studying our planet’s magnetic field have shown details of the steady swell of a magnetic field produced by the ocean’s tides.

Four years of data collected by the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Swarm mission have contributed to the mapping of this ‘other’ magnetic field, one that could help us build better models around global warming.
