Interactive Map of Billions of Birds’ Migration

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).

New activity/unrest was reported for 6 volcanoes between March 28 and April 3, 2018.

During the same period, ongoing activity was reported for 9 volcanoes.


New activity/unrest: Aira, Kyushu (Japan) | Ambae, Vanuatu | Dieng Volcanic Complex, Central Java (Indonesia) | Kikai, Japan | Kirishimayama, Kyushu (Japan) | Piton de la Fournaise, Reunion Island (France).


Ongoing activity: Dukono, Halmahera (Indonesia) | Ebeko, Paramushir Island (Russia) | Karymsky, Eastern Kamchatka (Russia) | Kilauea, Hawaiian Islands (USA) | Mayon, Luzon (Philippines) | Sabancaya, Peru | Sheveluch, Central Kamchatka (Russia) | Suwanosejima, Ryukyu Islands (Japan) | Turrialba, Costa Rica.


The Weekly Volcanic Activity Report is a cooperative project between the Smithsonian’s Global Volcanism Program and the US Geological Survey’s Volcano Hazards Program. Updated by 23:00 UTC every Wednesday, notices of volcanic activity posted are preliminary and subject to change as events are studied in more detail.

This is not a comprehensive list of all of Earth’s volcanoes erupting during the week.

Carefully reviewed, detailed reports on various volcanoes are published monthly in the Bulletin of the Global Volcanism Network.

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.

Extra chinese nail in our coffin: China is building massive weather modification system to make more rain!

Posted in 2018, Extreme Weather, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on April 1, 2018 by theboldcorsicanflame

China is testing cutting-edge weather modification technology in Tibetan Plateau.

The country aims to implement a large-scale weather changing project to ensure a consistent rain supply in the area three times as big as Spain, nearing 1 million km2 (620 000 mi2).

The system is created from a network of solid fuel burning chambers that produce silver iodide, a compound with a structure much like ice that can be used in cloud seeding.

Tens of thousands of small burning chambers will be installed across the Tibetan Plateau in an attempt to increase rainfall in the area.

Once in place, the system has the potential to increase rainfall in the region by up to 10 billion cubic meters a year, which amounts about 7% of China’s total water consumption.

It is the world’s biggest single weather changing project ever attempted. The system relies on small low-tech chambers which burns solid fuel that produces silver iodide. As wind sweeps up the mountain, the particles are swept up into the air where they form rain clouds. The system has been developed by China’s state-owned Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation.

Solar storms and a range of other space energy contributors modulate the Schumann Resonance

Posted in 2018, Earthquakes, Extreme Weather, Galaxy with tags , on March 19, 2018 by theboldcorsicanflame

Reader’s question: Historically, does this coincide with solar storms? Solar storms and a range of other space energy contributors modulate the SR. A gamma ray burst significantly changed the SRs in 2004 Dez 27th, (the day after the Indian Ocean Tsunami.) The SRs have been monitored since the late 1960’s, thus the long-term connections are […]
