Yellowstone volcano preparing to erupt?

Yellowstone volcano In Yellowstone recorded high concentrations of CO2 that can talk about the imminent eruption of the super volcano. Satellite images show that a large amount of carbon dioxide released into the area of the volcano. High CO2 levels in the vicinity of the volcanoes are usually harbingers of imminent eruption, as a sign of the rise of pressure deep beneath the earth’s surface.

In addition, there has been a surge in seismic activity in Wyoming and near the caldera super volcano. Yellowstone last erupted 70,000 years ago, but the recent surge in seismic activity around the world, could accelerate in the depths of its caldera. Read the rest of this entry »

Volcano in deep Antarctic ice sheet

volcano Live volcano is spewing magma at a depth of over a mile below a huge ice sheet. It is an unprecedented discovery which points to the possibility of a major eruption, but with totally unpredictable consequences. 

A team of seismologists led by Douglas Wiens of Washington University made the discovery after detecting a series of earthquakes of low magnitude in the West Antarctica – the type of earthquakes that often precede volcanic eruptions. The researchers ruled out the possibility that these events that were occurring at a depth of 15 to 25 miles (25-40 km) below the sub-glacial surface were caused by earthquakes of glacial ice movement or activity tectonics due to deep and long period waves.
