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.

Interactive Map of Billions of Birds’ Migration

Posted in 2018, animals, Uncategorized with tags , , on April 6, 2018 by theboldcorsicanflame

birds.migration

Different types of birds take routes of widely varying lengths.
Some round-trip migrations can be as long as 44,000 miles, equivalent to almost two round-the-world trips. Others are much shorter.

Some birds even migrate on foot.
Many cover thousands of miles and move back and forth between continents.

Japan: Volcano Shinmoedake Eruption ~ Slowed Down A Bit ~ Better Visually ~ 04/05/2018

Posted in Uncategorized on April 6, 2018 by theboldcorsicanflame

A strong explosive eruption took place at Shinmoedake volcano, Kirishima mountain range in Japan, late April 4, 2018.

The eruption sent ash up to 6.7 km (22 000 feet) above sea level, the highest since a series of eruptions began on March 1, the Japanese Meteorological Agency said.
The eruption also produced minor pyroclastic flows southeast of the crater, in the direction of Takaharu, Miyazaki Prefecture. Some of them reached about 800 meters (2 600 feet) from the crater.

Kagoshima and Mizayaki governments said they had not received any reports of injuries.

The eruption took place two days after a sharp seismicity uptick and mountain ‘swelling’ observed after a recent contraction due to eruption.

Geological summary
Kirishimayama is a large group of more than 20 Quaternary volcanoes located north of Kagoshima Bay. The late-Pleistocene to Holocene dominantly andesitic group consists of stratovolcanoes, pyroclastic cones, maars, and underlying shield volcanoes located over an area of 20 x 30 km (12.4 – 18.6 miles).

Birds can see The magnetic fields

Posted in 2018, animals, Uncategorized with tags , , , on April 5, 2018 by theboldcorsicanflame

Researchers have long suspected that birds can see magnetic fields.

Now, two new studies (one examining zebra finches and the other looking at European robins) have identified a specific protein that gives them this uncanny sense.

Both single out Cry4, a light-sensitive protein found in the retina. This raises the interesting possibility that birds can see geomagnetic storms–not only by watching auroras as humans do, but also by witnessing the underlying unrest of Earth’s magnetic field.
