GSM Update 10/24/17 – Explosion at Stromboli – 9.0 Cascadia Simulation – Record Rainfall & Flooding


 

 

 

 
One of the worst nightmares for many Pacific Northwest residents is a huge earthquake along the offshore Cascadia Subduction Zone, which would unleash damaging and likely deadly shaking in coastal Washington, Oregon, British Columbia and northern California. The last time this happened was in 1700, before seismic instruments were around to record the event. So what will happen when it ruptures next is largely unknown. A University of Washington research project, to be presented October 24 at the Geological Society of America’s annual meeting in Seattle, simulates 50 different ways that a magnitude-9.0 earthquake on the Cascadia subduction zone could unfold. “There had been just a handful of detailed simulations of a magnitude-9 Cascadia earthquake, and it was hard to know if they were showing the full range,” said Erin Wirth, who led the project as a UW postdoctoral researcher in Earth and space sciences. “With just a few simulations you didn’t know if you were seeing a best-case, a worst-case or an average scenario. This project has really allowed us to be more confident in saying that we’re seeing the full range of possibilities.” Have a look at the simulated ground motions and seismometer readings in four cities for the scenario that generated the most shaking in Seattle. In this scenario, the hypocenter was far away, but the rupture spread inland and up the coast, causing waves to pile up toward Seattle. https://watchers.news/2017/10/23/50-s… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soil_li…

Scientists can’t explain why a giant hole the size of Maine just opened up in Antarctica October 10, 2017


 Note: A major volcanic eruption or geothermal activity in the ocean could be related to this phenomenon.

A mysterious hole the size of Maine has opened up in Antarctica, stumping scientists who have no clue how it formed, Motherboard reports. “It looks like you just punched a hole in the ice,” explained University of Toronto Mississauga professor Kent Moore.

Called a “polynya” — an area of open ocean water in the midst of ice — the spot was first observed in the same location in the 1970s, but scientists at the time were limited in their ability to study it. “At that time, the scientific community had just launched the first satellites that provided images of the sea-ice cover from space. On-site measurements in the Southern Ocean still require enormous efforts, so they are quite limited,” Dr. Torge Martin told Phys.org.

Last year, the hole mysteriously opened up again for a few weeks. The 2017 polynya, which is larger than the Netherlands and opened in early September, marks “the second year in a row it’s opened after 40 years of not being there,” Moore said.

Blaming climate change is “premature,” Moore cautioned, adding that his team is working to publish their research on why the hole has appeared again. That being said, Martin added: “For us this ice-free area is an important new data point which we can use to validate our climate models. Its occurrence after several decades also confirms our previous calculations.” Read more about the polynya at Motherboard and Phys.org. Jeva Lange

Earthquake swarm detected under Cumbre Vieja volcano, Canary Islands


 

A seismic swarm started under Cumbre Vieja volcano (La Palma) in the Canary Islands on Saturday, October 7, 2017. Authorities said they will increase monitoring the volcano starting October 10 and assign 5 scientists to keep track of the earthquakes. The last eruptive phase of this volcano started on October 26, 1971 and ended on November 18 (VEI 2). 

The new, 24-hour monitoring network of the National Geographic Institute (IGN) has recorded a total of 68 earthquakes under the volcano since October 7 with magnitudes from 1.5 to 2.7 on the Richter scale.

The largest earthquake so far was M2.7 at 11:03 UTC on October 7 at a depth of 28 km (17.4 miles). The second largest was M2.6 at 23:23 UTC on October 7.

María José Blanco, IGN Canary Islands director, said the agency will start increasing the number of seismic stations starting October 10 and intensify geochemical measures. In addition, 5 scientists will be assigned to keep track of the earthquakes.

“While the earthquakes are not usual, the current seismic swarm is not anomalous,” Blanco said. “We have never recorded a similar swarm, and although it has very low energy and is very deep, it is different from the seismic activity recorded so far.”

Nemesio Pérez of the Volcanology Institute of Canary Islands (INVOLCAN) said seismic swarms like this one are absolutely normal for active volcanos. “On the other hand, this type of process does not occur every year in Cumbre Vieja and it has to be followed up and it is necessary to evaluate its evolution, especially since the volcano had a kind of significant seismic calm in the past years.

“Our experience with the study of diffuse emanations of carbon dioxide in active volcanic systems, as well as that of other colleagues who are experts in this field, tells us that significant changes in the diffuse emission of carbon dioxide can be detected or recorded for months and even years before active volcanoes can undergo a volcanic reactivation process,” Pérez said.

“As a closer example we could mention the case of the recent process of volcanic reactivation of El Hierro, which ended with a volcanic eruption in October 2011 (not all reactivations end in eruptions), and where there were changes in diffuse emission of dioxide already in 2004 and 2006; a few years before the eruption of El Hierro in 2011.

“In the case of Cumbre Vieja, our research group has been monitoring this important parameter for volcanic monitoring for 20 years, and during the scientific campaigns of 2011 and 2013 we detected significant changes in the diffuse emission of carbon dioxide in Cumbre Vieja, reaching records that exceeded 1 500 tons per day (values above the average value for Cumbre Vieja, which is of the order of 374 tons per day, as well as above the range of the background values for Cumbre Vieja estimated between 132 and 1,254 tonnes per day).

“These significant changes in the diffuse emission of carbon dioxide in Cumbre Vieja as a consequence of magma fluid injection processes are also strongly supported by the changes in the emission of helium-3 in La Palma, which confirm this observation. Therefore, we could venture to say that the recent seismic swarm that has been recorded in La Palma is a process that could be considered as expected in Cumbre Vieja since it is an active volcano that has previously experienced significant changes in the diffuse emission of carbon dioxide.”

For Diario de Avisos, Pérez said that, with the data available at the present, we are likely not at the prelude of a new eruptive process in Cumbra Vieja whose last volcanic eruption took place in 1971.

The 1971 eruption started at the southern end of the Cumbre Vieja at the Teneguía vent on October 26. The eruption was mainly strombolian in style but had several lava flows. Seismic activity did occur before and during the 1971 eruption but was not on the scale associated with the 1949 eruption.

Geological summary

The 47-km-long (29 miles) wedge-shaped island of La Palma, the NW-most of the Canary Islands, is composed of two large volcanic centers. The older northern one is cut by the massive steep-walled Caldera Taburiente, one of several massive collapse scarps produced by edifice failure to the SW.

The younger Cumbre Vieja, the southern volcano, is one of the most active in the Canaries. The elongated volcano dates back to about 125 000 years ago and is oriented N-S. Eruptions during the past 7 000 years have originated from the abundant cinder cones and craters along the axis of Cumbre Vieja, producing fissure-fed lava flows that descend steeply to the sea.

Historical eruptions at La Palma, recorded since the 15th century, have produced mild explosive activity and lava flows that damaged populated areas. The southern tip of the island is mantled by a broad lava field produced during the 1677-1678 eruption. Lava flows also reached the sea in 1585, 1646, 1712, 1949, and 1971. (GVP)

SOTT Earth Changes Summary – February 2017: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs


SOTT ‘Earth Changes’ video summary for February 2017: extreme weather events, environmental indicators of ‘planetary upheaval’ (seismic, volcanic, etc) and Near-Earth Objects in the form of meteor fireballs.

Februrary 2017 continued on as January started. Massive flooding in California due to “atmospheric rivers” dumping large amounts of rain on coastal areas and snow on the Sierra Nevada. The snow melt from this caused further flooding in Nevada. Eastern Canada also experienced record snowfall, as did Iran, Kazakhstan, Afghanistan and Japan.

Wildfires broke out in Eastern Australia and New Zealand while record rainfall inundated Western Australia. Major flooding also hit several South American nations including Chile, Peru and Colombia.

There are at least 30 active volcanoes around the world right now, including a really impressive one in Guatemala. Massive earth cracks opened in Pakistan and Italy.

These are just some of the chaotic events we present in this month’s Sott ‘Earth Changes’ video compilation.

One of the greatest mass extinctions caused by volcanic eruptions


Note: On my timeline, scientists knew volcanic eruptions s caused one of the greatest mass extinctions in Earth’s history. Is this another Mandela Effect, or did the article omit other extinction phases where volcanic eruptions caused ELE’s? Blessings, {~A~}

One of the greatest mass extinctions caused by volcanic eruptions

Scientists have linked global mass extinction at the Permian-Triassic boundary some 250 million years ago to an ice age caused by the activity of the first volcanism in the Siberian Traps. The research paves the way for a new vision of the Earth’s climate history.

The Earth has known several mass extinctions over the course of its history and one of the most important happened at the Permian-Triassic boundary 250 million years ago when over 95% of marine species disappeared. Up until now, scientists have linked this extinction to a significant rise in Earth temperatures, but researchers from the University of Geneva (UNIGE), Switzerland, working alongside the University of Zurich, discovered that this extinction took place during a short ice age which preceded the global climate warming.

It’s the first time that the various stages of a mass extinction have been accurately understood and that scientists have been able to assess the major role played by volcanic explosions in these climate processes. This research, which can be read in Scientific Reports, completely calls into question the scientific theories regarding these phenomena, founded on the increase of CO2 in the atmosphere, and paves the way for a new vision of the Earth’s climate history.

Teams of researchers led by Professor Urs Schaltegger from the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the Faculty of Science of the UNIGE and by Hugo Bucher, from the University of Zürich, have been working on absolute dating for many years. They work on determining the age of minerals in volcanic ash, which establishes a precise and detailed chronology of the earth’s climate evolution.

They became interested in the Permian-Triassic boundary, 250 million years ago, during which one of the greatest mass extinctions ever took place, responsible for the loss of 95% of marine species. How did this happen? For how long marine biodiversity stayed at very low levels?

A technique founded on the radioactive decay of uranium

Researchers worked on sediment layers in the Nanpanjiang basin in southern China. They have the particularity of being extremely well preserved, which allowed for an accurate study of the biodiversity and the climate history of the Permian and the Triassic.

“We made several cross-sections of hundreds of meters of basin sediments and we determined the exact positions of ash beds contained in these marine sediments,” explained Björn Baresel, first author of the study.

They then applied a precise dating technique based on natural radioactive decay of uranium, as Urs Schaltegger added: “In the sedimentary cross-sections, we found layers of volcanic ash containing the mineral zircon which incorporates uranium. It has the specificity of decaying into lead over time at a well-known speed. This is why, by measuring the concentrations of uranium and lead, it was possible for us to date a sediment layer to an accuracy of 35 000 years, which is already fairly precise for periods over 250 million years.”

Ice is responsible for mass extinction

By dating the various sediment layers, researchers realized that the mass extinction of the Permian-Triassic boundary is represented by a gap in sedimentation, which corresponds to a period when the sea-water level decreased.

The only explanation to this phenomenon is that there was ice, which stored water, and that this ice age which lasted 80 000 years was sufficient to eliminate much of marine life. Scientists from the UNIGE explain the global temperature drop by a stratospheric injection of large amounts of sulphur dioxide reducing the intensity of solar radiation reaching the surface of the earth.

“We therefore have proof that the species disappeared during an ice age caused by the activity of the first volcanism in the Siberian Traps,” added Urs Schaltegger. This ice age was followed by the formation of limestone deposits through bacteria, marking the return of life on Earth at more moderate temperatures.

The period of intense climate warming, related to the emplacement of large amounts of basalt of the Siberian Traps and which we previously thought was responsible for the extinction of marine species, in fact, happened 500 000 years after the Permian-Triassic boundary.

This study, therefore shows that climate warming is not the only explanation of global ecological disasters in the past on Earth: it is important to continue analyzing ancient marine sediments to gain a deeper understanding of the Earth’s climate system.

Covered in ash: Chinstrap penguins threatened by volcanic eruption


© Pete Bucktrout, British Antarctic Survey
Volcanic ash threatens an enormous colony of chinstrap penguins.

The hatcheries of migratory penguins can be magical places, full of fluffy chicks and doting parents. But things are less picturesque when you add volcanic ash to the mix. A volcano on the northernmost island of an archipelago in the South Atlantic Ocean has been spewing ash and smoke since March, threatening one of the largest colonies of penguins in the world, according to a new study.

Zavodovski Island, one of the South Sandwich Islands, is uninhabited by humans, but it is home to more than 1 million chinstrap penguins, according to the British Antarctic Survey (BAS). BAS researchers found the volcanic eruption via satellite imagery and fishermen from nearby South Georgia were able to photograph ash blowing eastward across the island over penguin-nesting grounds.

“We donꞌt know what impact the ash will have on the penguins,” Peter Fretwell, a geographer with the BAS, said in a statement. “If it has been heavy and widespread it may have a serious effect on the population.”

The chinstrap penguin (Pygoscelis antarctica) stands about 30 inches (75 centimeters) tall and eats mostly krill (tiny crustaceans). These penguins are abundant throughout the sub-Antarctic region, and there are at least 8 million in the wild, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

The penguins forage at sea from March until November, when they return to their colonies to breed. When the eruption began in March, some straggling penguins may have still been molting, shedding old feathers and growing new ones, and were unable to leave the island, said Wayne Trivelpiece, a biologist with the National Marine Fisheries Service who has studied penguins for 40 years.

There is evidence of prior volcanic activity on Zavodovski Island, according to the BAS, but the extent of that volcanism and its effect on wildlife on the remote island are unknown. Two expeditions are planned later this year to evaluate damage from the eruption, Fretwell said.

But the main effects of the eruption, Trivelpiece said, won’t be known until the penguins return to the island, where 10 to 15 percent of the world’s chinstraps nest. “If the ash covers everything, that will make a difference,” he said, “That’s not going to be good terrain to lay eggs in.”

Ultimately, like the BAS, Trivelpiece is taking a wait-and-see approach in assessing the effects of the eruption by Mount Curry on the island’s penguin population. He said the ash could be blown out to sea, or the “very adaptable” chinstraps may find alternative nesting grounds.

“We donꞌt really know,” Trivelpiece told Live Science. “We’d just be guessing.”

Mauna Loa Earthquake Swarm Detected (June 5, 2016)


Note: I started hearing about earthquake swarms on Mana Loa back in early 2013 from a roommate who talked with a civil defense engineer he met at Kilauea volcano. So when I heard about the TMT project, I really questioned the viability of the project and why these plans were being pushed thru.

Currently data is coming in indicating magma is rising from deep underground chambers to the surface, hence the reason we have 40 volcano’s erupting around the ring of fire. In some areas like the US midwest, magma is at Stage 3 Critical levels…meaning close to an eruption.

So this data doesn’t surprise me one bit, as a matter of fact I heard an expert geologist on an interview back in 2013 say he predicts a huge eruption at Mana Loa that will create serious seismic events for the Pacific basin. Whether that’s true, has yet to be seen.

IMO Gaia and Pele have plans for the TMT project…it will never happen on our sacred aina.
