During volcanic eruptions in Iceland can start a flood that threatens to escalate into a new Flood, said researcher Museum of Geosciences, Moscow State University Nikolai Zharvin at a press conference on the anomalous activity of the volcano. As a result, according to him will be flooded the entire coast for hundreds and thousands of miles and jeopardizing Petersburg, Kaliningrad, Murmansk, Arkhangelsk, writes Reuters.
“When the melting of Greenland glaciers reaches the critical level, Icelandic clip can be everywhere at once. Then the North American lithospheric plates will rush up and Eurasian – down. Form a huge failure, which rain down water and gets into the noosphere, heated to 1000 degrees Celsius. Clap blast, after which the planet at zero visibility, “- said the scientist.
Then, he predicted, there is an outbreak of unprecedented seismic activity and wake up a dormant volcano. “The ocean is literally heaving. The water will rise to 20-30 km and will cause rain of biblical force “- added Zharvin.
Along with Russian cities affected may also New York, Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires. It is expected this phenomenon, according to the expert, in 2030-2070, respectively. However, the exact date is difficult to name because the process are poorly studied.
“We need to watch the rate of melting of the Greenland glacier. He can melt before, perhaps this year. I would put the question to which we will evacuate the population of Petrograd, Pskov, Veliky Novgorod, Arkhangelsk, Murmansk and other cities “, – quotes the expert portal Ytro.Ru.
Other scientists argue that the Icelandic volcano can not yet to write off. For example, Associate Professor of General and Applied Geophysics, University of Dubna, Vladimir Krivitsky said that the nature of the eruption indicates that it might yet turn into a very powerful at the expense of pyroclastic material (silicon) in a volcano.
Meanwhile, Michael Rukin, Research Fellow, Moscow State University, noted that the eruption in Iceland – a natural process. He estimated that the level of seismic activity on the planet will only grow, especially in China and Australia, which is a consequence of changes in Earth’s orbit. “Around the year 2012, this process will come to finish” – added Rukin, without specifying whether this date is in any way with the predictions of the Maya people, who considered this year a turning point in the history of the planet.
