Yellowstone Update
« Reply #168 on: September 23, 2018, 04:11:25 PM »

If this isn’t the big one, it certainly ranks as a strange one – strange enough that parts of Yellowstone National Park have been shut down. A thermal spring that has only erupted three times in the past 60 years made the fourth a memorable one this week as it spewed enough steam, water, rocks and debris 30 feet into the air, forcing the park to close a popular observation boardwalk and other areas to protect tourists. This triggered other nearby geyser eruptions and comes on top of Steamboat Geyser, Yellowstone’s largest, shooting boiling water up to 300 feet in the air for an hour and fifteen minutes – the latest eruption in its most active year since 1982. And then there was the guy caught urinating into a geyser … is this really a good time to insult the supervolcano under Yellowstone?

Volcano erupts in Indonesia days after devastating earthquake and tsunami

A volcano erupted Wednesday on the same island in Indonesia where an earthquake and tsunami last week killed at least 1,400 people.

The eruption of Mount Soputan on Sulawesi island in central Indonesia prompted authorities to warn of possible lava flows and ash clouds that could impact air travel. Evacuations were ordered for those living within a few miles of the volcano.

The eruption spewed ash 19,700 feet into the sky.

Scientists have not yet determined whether the eruption was directly triggered by the earthquake in central Sulawesi on Friday. However, Indonesian news portal Tempo cited a government volcanologist who suspected it was.

Indonesia has many actives volcanoes. It is also located in the so-called Ring of Fire, one of the most active areas for earthquakes in the world.

President Donald Trump called Indonesian President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo on Tuesday to offer assistance with both the emergency phase and reconstruction from the earthquake and tsunami that struck Sulawesi.

In addition to the growing death toll, hundreds of people were severely injured in Friday’s disasters. With many roads blocked and key communication lines and infrastructure destroyed, food, water, fuel and medicine are struggling to reach the hardest-hit areas outside Palu, the largest city heavily damaged. More than 60,000 people have been displaced, according to the National Disaster Mitigation Agency.

NASA’s Plan To Save Earth From The Yellowstone Supervolcano
« Reply #171 on: October 10, 2018, 06:00:36 PM »

Even though we are constantly being told by scientists to not worry about the Yellowstone supervolcano, NASA is now on a mission to save the earth from exactly that. NASA has ambitious plans to prevent the extinction of the human race by drilling into the supervolcano.

According to the BBC, NASA researchers got in touch with the media outlet to detail the threat lurking beneath Wyoming’s crust and what they think they can do about it before it eliminates humanity.  NASA contacted the BBC after they published an article about supervolcanoes last month.

USGS Upgrades Yellowstone to "HIGH" alert status
« Reply #176 on: October 29, 2018, 02:43:19 PM »


The U.S. Geological Survey said that it is classifying 18 volcanoes in the United States as having a “very high threat,” and it classified the Yellowstone volcano in Wyoming as “high.”

The USGS updated its volcano threat assessments list for the first time since 2006.

When watching a geyser erupt, you expect a thrilling burst of water from the ground and some warm spray in the air — not to see garbage rain down from the sky.

'Volcano tsunami' hits Indonesia after Krakatoa eruption

    6 minutes ago


Image caption This image of Anak Krakatoa erupting was taken by Oystein Lund Andersen on Saturday

At least 62 people have been killed and 584 injured after a tsunami hit the coast on Indonesia's Sunda Strait, government officials say.

The country's disaster management agency says hundreds of buildings were damaged by Saturday's tsunami.

It says the possible cause of the tsunami was undersea landslides after the Krakatoa volcano erupted.

The strait, between the islands of Java and Sumatra, connects the Java Sea to the Indian Ocean.
What is the latest?

The disaster management agency warned that the death toll after the tsunami, that struck at about 21:30 local time (14:30GMT) on Saturday, is likely to rise further.

Deaths have been reported in the Pandeglang, South Lampung and Serang regions.

Among the areas hit was the popular Tanjung Lesung beach resort in west Java. There was no warning of the advancing wave.

Footage shared on social media showed a large wave crashing into a venue in the resort, where a popular Indonesian rock band, Seventeen, was performing. Members of the band are seen being swept away as the wave destroys the stage.

In an Instagram video, singer Riefian Fajarsyah, said the band's bassist and road manager had died, and that three other band members and his own wife were missing.

The country's Red Cross said it was on the scene and searching for victims in the rubble of one collapsed building.
'There were two waves'

Oystein Lund Andersen, Norwegian volcano photographer, Anyer Beach in West Java

I was on the beach. I was alone, my family were sleeping in a room.

I was trying to photograph the erupting Krakatoa volcano.

Earlier in the evening, there was quite heavy eruption activity. But just prior to the waves hitting the beach, there was no activity at all. It was just dark out there.

And suddenly I saw this wave coming, and I had to run.

There were two waves. The first wave wasn't that strong - I could run from it.

Image caption Flooded streets in Anyer after the tsunami

I ran straight to the hotel, where my wife and my son were sleeping.

And I woke them up... and I heard a bigger wave coming. I looked out of the window when the second wave hit. It was much bigger.

The wave passed the hotel. Cars were pushed off the road.

We and other people at the hotel went straight to the forest (on higher ground) next to the hotel. And we're still up on the hill now.

- Oystein Lund Andersen was speaking to BBC World News television
What might have caused the tsunami?

Emergency officials are investigating whether the tsunami was caused by Anak Krakatoa, a volcanic island in the Sunda Strait.

    The child who came back from the dead after tsunami

Volcanologist Jess Phoenix told the BBC that when volcanoes erupt, hot magma pushes underground and can displace and break through colder rock. This can trigger a landslide.

But because part of Krakatoa is underwater, she said "instead of just causing a landslide, you get an undersea landslide which pushes water as it moves." This can then cause a tsunami.

The Anak Krakatoa volcano has seen increased activity in recent months.

Indonesia's geologic agency said that the volcano erupted for two minutes and 12 seconds on Friday, creating an ash cloud that rose 400 metres (1,300ft) above the mountain.

It recommended that no-one be allowed within two kilometres of the crater.

Image caption A satellite image of Anak Krakatoa erupting in August

The disaster management agency said that high seas as a result of the full moon may also have contributed to the strength of the waves.
Is this unusual?

Indonesia is prone to tsunamis because it lies on the Ring of Fire - the line of frequent earthquakes and volcanic eruptions that circles virtually the entire Pacific rim.

In September, more than 2,000 people died when a powerful earthquake struck just off the central Indonesian island of Sulawesi, setting off a tsunami that engulfed the coastal city of Palu.

    A town smashed to pulp in minutes
    Indian Ocean tsunami: Then and now

On 26 December 2004, a series of huge waves triggered by a powerful earthquake in the Indian Ocean killed about 228,000 people in 14 countries, mostly in Indonesia.

However, tsunamis caused by volcanic activity like this are less frequent.

In August 1883, it underwent arguably the most violent volcanic eruptions in recorded history:

    Massive tsunamis with waves up to 135ft (41m) killed more than 30,000 people
    Thousands more were killed by hot ash
    The eruptions were equivalent to 200 megatons of TNT - about 13,000 times the nuclear yield of the bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945
    The eruptions were heard thousands of kilometres away
    World temperatures dropped by more than 1C the following year
    The volcanic island virtually disappeared

In 1927, a new island, Anak Krakatoa (Child of Krakatoa) emerged
