SINABUNG VOLCANO EXPLODES TO 40,000 FEET (12.2 KM) IN SPECTACULAR FASHION

Sumatra’s incredibly active Sinabung Volcano has exploded in spectacular fashion again today, March 2, sending volcanic ash high into the atmosphere.

 

The Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Darwin is warning of a thick ash plume rising to 40,000 feet (12.2 km).

 

Particulates ejected to altitudes above 32,800 feet (10 km) –and into the stratosphere– have a direct cooling effect on the planet. ...

 

... BACKGROUND

Stratovolcano: 2460 m / 8,071 ft  
Sumatra, Indonesia: 3.17°N / 98.39°E 
Current status: ERUPTION WARNING

Eruption list: 0810 ± 70 years, 2010, 2013-2018, 2019-ongoing ...

This time lapse is pretty wild.

I have updated the thread title to include Earthquakes.

 

UPDATE: 8.0 quake reported near New Zealand, third major one of day

A magnitude 8.0 earthquake, the third major one of the day, was detected near the Kermadec Islands near New Zealand on Thursday, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

 

A tsunami warning was issued. Residents from Bay of Islands to Whangarei, Matata to Tolaga Bay and the Great Barrier Island were advised to move to high ground, according to New Zealand officials.

 

A tsunami watch was issued for the Hawaiian Islands after the latest earthquake, according to a local news source. ...

The first time we were in Sorrento, we were having a drink on the terrace of the rooftop bar. There was this big, dark blob taking up a lot of room in the sky.  It was Mount Vesuvius.

The last time we went to Italy, we went to Pompeii. Advice: go before you are 40. They are nutty about not touching anything, and walking the stones and paths is not easy. If you have a baby stroller, walker, or need a cane, forgetaboutit.

When we were in Sicily (same trip as Pompeii) we got to watch Mount Etna spit and burp (a lot). It erupted last month.

The photo of Mt Etna was taken from up in the mountains in a village called Taormina.

Those grapes are on Mt Etna. Grape growing and (pretty darned decent) wine making can happen on Mt Etna due to the micro-climate. It is also very fertile soil.

These are both within the Ring of Fire, and are probably related.  Also it's my pet theory of why ocean waters are warming, especially with little scientific knowledge of true underwater eruptions.

 

Yep. I have thought for a long time that it is the underwater volcanoes that are not only erupting but building land mass that alters the deep sea currents, which in turn is altering the Jet Stream.

My curiosity got peaked by all the stories about the Great Barrier Reef decaying due to warming waters, which was naturally attributed to global warming.   Yet there's little discussion of massive eruptions surrounding New Zealand starting in 2012.   

 

You'd figure scientists would study both, if for the very least, eliminate one of the causes.

Such nonsense. If the oceans really were warming up due to volcanic activity, there would be no reason to engage in policies designed to radically redistribute wealth. Dammit, man, I need the government to institute programs so that I get paid to be unwilling to work, in the name of saving the environment!

An underseas volcano that formed an island in 2014 is still erupting.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or the extent of the damage as communications with the small nation remained cut off hours after the eruption.

 

In Hawaii, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center reported waves slamming ashore from half a meter (a foot) in Nawiliwili, Kauai, to 80 centimeters (2.7 feet) in Hanalei. ...
