Hundreds briefly evacuate as volcano erupts in northeast Indonesia

Hundreds of residents in northeastern Indonesia fled their homes on Wednesday after a brief eruption at Mount Gamkonora, spewing towering columns of ash and smoke and prompting officials to raise the volcano’s alert level to the second-highest state.

The 1,635-meter (5,364 feet) tall volcano, which is located on the west coast of Halmahera island in the Maluku Islands and is part of North Maluku province, began to erupt on Wednesday afternoon and sent thick ash clouds up to 3,000 meters (9,842 feet) high, although no lava flows were seen.

The Antara news agency reported that hundreds of residents living on the volcano’s slope evacuated the area following the eruption, but they returned hours later after officials determined their communities are not currently at risk. New evacuations could be ordered if activity at the volcano continues to increase.

Following Wednesday’s eruption, the country’s Volcanology and Geology Disaster Mitigation Center (PVMBG) decided to raise the volcano’s alert status to Siaga (level 3), the second-highest level. The agency uses a warning system with four levels of alert, with level 1 being the lowest and level 4 being the highest.

PVMBG said activity at Mount Gamkonora has been increasing for months, with more frequent volcanic earthquakes and an increase of magma activity near the surface. Authorities are still uncertain whether the current eruption will lead to a major event, but past eruptions at the volcano have nearly all been explosive.

Potential Iceland eruption could pump acid into European airspace

An extraordinary type of volcanic eruption in Iceland could inject large quantities of hazardous gases into North Atlantic and European flight corridors for months at a time, a new study suggests.

Using computer simulations, researchers are investigating the likely atmospheric effects if a “flood lava” eruption took place in Iceland today. Flood lava eruptions, which stand out for the sheer amounts of lava and sulphurous gases they release and the way their lava sprays from cracks like fiery fountains, have occurred in Iceland four times in roughly the past thousand years, records indicate, the most recent being the deadly and remarkable eruption of Iceland’s volcano Laki in 1783-84.

Large Eruptions Could Eat Away at Ozone Layer

Studies of 14 volcanoes in Nicaragua over the past 70,000 years show a large eruption could thin the ozone layer for several years.

A large eruption in the volcanically active region of Central America could release enough ozone-depleting gases to significantly thin the ozone layer for several years, researchers announced today (June 12).

Such a volcanic eruption could double or triple the current levels of the chemical elements bromine and chlorine in the stratosphere, the upper atmosphere layer where ozone gas protects us from ultraviolet radiation, the researchers calculated, based on the levels of these chemicals released from 14 volcanoes in Nicaragua over the past 70,000 years. The researchers presented their work at a scientific conference in Iceland.

Bromine and chlorine need an electron to become stable, and can easily rip it off passing molecules, like ozone. They are gases that "love to react — especially with ozone," study researcher Kirstin Krüger, a meteorologist with GEOMAR in Kiel, Germany, explained in a statement. "If they reach the upper levels of the atmosphere, they have a high potential of depleting the ozone layer."

Red alert declared over Kamchatka’s Shiveluch eruption

The Shiveluch volcano on Kamchatka Peninsula in Russia's Far East has erupted ash rising to an altitude of 8 km above sea level, ITAR-TASS reports.

Currently there is no danger for local communities. The eruption was accompanied by underground shocks which lasted 3.5 minutes.

A red alert has been declared following the eruption of the Shiveluch volcano in Russia’s Far East Kamchatka region.

It is the highest aviation safety alert, meaning that the volcano presents extreme danger to aircraft, a local geophysics agency said.

Alert level raised on previously extinct Colombian Sotará volcano

An eruption would be first known in recorded history

According to INGEOMINAS, the Observatorio Vulcanológico and Sismológico de Popayán reported that during 8-14 August seismic activity at Sotará increased. The seismic network recorded 110 magnitude 0.2-1.6 events mainly located in an area 0.1-5 km NE of the peak, at depths of 2-6 km. Inflation was detected in the NE area, coincident with the zone of increased seismicity. Web-camera views showed no morphological changes. The Alert Level was raised to III (Yellow; “changes in the behavior of volcanic activity”), or the second lowest level.

Indonesia’s Tangkubanperahu volcano awakens from dormant sleep after 20 years

An increase in seismic activity at Tangkubanperahu volcano near Bandung, the capital of West Java, has been detected since 13 August and promted the Indonesian Volcanological survey (PVMBG) to increase the alert level of the volcano from 1 (normal) to 2 (alert) on 23 August.

Between 1 July and 23 Aug, 264 volcanic earthquakes were recorded, which is almost double to values measured during similar periods of time at the beginning of the year.

In addition, pulses of volcanic tremor could be recognized. Tangkubanperahu has 2 main craters, each about 1000 m wide and 400 m deep, filled by crater lakes, Kawah Ratu (queen) and Kawah Upas, respectively.

The craters and lakes along with fumaroles and warm springs are popular tourist destinations. It is recommended not to climb the volcano’s crater, which is a popular tourist destination in the area.

The last eruptions of the Tangkubanperahu were phreatic explosions in 1994.

Ecuador on Alert Over Spewing Tungurahua Volcano

The Tungurahua volcano, an icon and symbol of sovereignty for Ecuadorians, has been registering new activity since the night of August 12, 2012, when incandescence was spotted around the crater zone, as reported by the Geophysical Institute EPN (Polytechnic National School).

The volcano has been spewing pyroclastic material and ash throughout this month, affecting 3,072 families, 4,329 acres of pasture and crops, and 5,700 animals, according to Ministry of Agriculture [es] officials.

In its August 20 report [es], the Geophysical Institute said that that the volcano had spewed columns of vapor with moderate ash content. These columns, which usually move west, reached maximum heights of 4 km and an average height of 1.5 km over the crater.

In its August 22 report, the Geophysical Institute said [es] that a decrease in activity had been registered, “however, evidence in the rest of the monitoring system is still present, like deformation, which indicates that there is still pressure inside the volcano.”

Quote:Is the super volcano Taupo awakening?

Update 3; OK this is getting more interesting and alarming by the day. The pumice debris in the ocean comes from a third erupting NZ volcano – Mt Monowai. This undersea volcano has one of the fastest growth rates of any modern volcano. Like with Krakatoa it is possible the pumice could find its way all the way to the Americas.

Indonesia warns of increasing eruption of Anak Krakatau Volcano

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 3 (KUNA) -- Indonesian authorities have warned of a possible increase in eruption at Anak Krakatau volcano in the province of Lampung, south Sumatra Island on Monday, after witnessed increase of its activity in the past few days.

Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) said that the volcano erupted by directing volcanic ashes that spread in the neighboring regions.

The agency urged citizens and visitors in neighboring provinces to wear masks when outdoors or driving motorcycles to protect themselves from the volcanic ashes.

It also advised fishermen and tourists not to go within a radius of 3 kilometers of the volcano site, noting that the Anak Krakatau has been unusually active reaching almost 90 eruptions per day.

Furthermore, the volcano spewed red hot lava reaching a height of 300 meters and more than 100 volcano quakes and tremors have been recorded, the agency added.

Mexico lowers alert level for simmering volcano

Mexico has lowered the alert level for the Popocatepetl volcano near Mexico City four months after the simmering giant raised the alarm when it began spewing red-hot fragments of rock.

The National Center for Disaster Prevention said on Saturday it had cut the warning level to yellow phase two from yellow phase three after emergency services concluded there was now no imminent danger for people outside the 7.5-mile (12-km) radius of an exclusion zone around Popocatepetl’s crater.

Super volcano discovered in Hong Kong

Hong Kong government scientists on Thursday announced that it had located the super volcano - the first discovery of its kind in southeastern China - while surveying the area in southeastern Hong Kong. The volcano is now extinct and poses no threat to Hong Kong.

The newly-discovered High Island Super volcano spurted out 1,300 cubic kilometres of ash about 140 million years ago, enough to blanket all of Hong Kong. The super volcanic eruption on the southeastern China seaboard would have produced a global environmental impact and could be related to the extinction of dinosaurs, according to a handout from Hong Kong’s Geotechnical Engineering Office that conducted the research.

Another volcano waking up.
-------------

Peru’s El Misti Volcano is active, says IGP

Peruvian geologists have revealed that recent activity at El Misti signal that the volcano is active.

Last Thursday researchers at the Geophysical Institute of Peru (IGP) found that El Misti – located 17km outside the city of Arequipa – had recently recorded the highest amount of seismic activity than in the past five years.

Engineer Orlando Macedo told El Comercio that 224 earthquakes were registered at El Misti - an event known as an earthquake swarm - and which signaled that the volcano was no longer dormant.

El Misti, he said, experienced 143 volcano tectonic earthquakes, which were caused by the fracture of rock inside the volcano, due to sudden changes in pressure and temperature.

Reclus volcano (Patagonia, Chile): increased number of earthquakes as sign of reawakening

Some unrest is going on at Reclus volcano in southern Chile, located between Aguilera and Monte Burney in Patagonia, the Eruptions Blog writes:

"Over the summer, earthquakes began to be felt in towns in the region of the volcano and a potential for new activity from the Reclus has prompted geologists to visit the volcano later this spring (southern hemisphere).
