    Yes, Katmai/Novarupta, but if anything does happen, it is most likely to be along the lines of that 1950s Trident eruption. Still, read that intricate info statement thoroughly. And my blog post last month, along with sources listed in it, can give you more general background (and icy video in...

    Volcanic Thunderstorms

    One of the most interesting volcanic phenomena is volcanic thunderstorms. I'm not talking about regular volcanic lightning produced by dry ash plumes but actual wet deep convection produced by volcanic eruptions. They are usually associated with phreatomagmatic and surtseyan eruptions. Some...

    La Palma/Cumbre Vieja Volcano in the Canaries

    There is an intense seismic swarm (Spanish) ongoing here, and they just raised the alert level to Yellow this afternoon. There's special excitement on the Internet about this because of featured news back in the 00's about a megatsunami hitting the US East Coast -- particularly Florida -- after...

    Sicilian Volcano Stromboli Has Big Eruption Unexpectedly

    Stromboli is very active -- enough to give its name to any kind of gassy, rather pretty but usually low-level eruption. But today it had a big one; per news reports, at least one person is dead. Here's an update from a reliable source. (INGV is the monitoring agency.) Dr. Krippner's...

    Local Weather and Temperature Calendars

    I have scoured the internet for a solid published source or website to derive my own statistics and potential preliminary conclusion upon the effect of long-lasting eruptions (2 week+) on local weather (temperature specifically) changes.

    Popocatepetl Volcano (Mexico)

    I don't know if people here will enjoy this, but it's worth sharing since everybody here is interested in communicating natural hazards and warning people in order to save lives and property wherever possible. What would you do if a volcano near 25 million people had been having a low-level...

    Red lava

    Is anyone else missing the sight of flowing fire rivers, now that Kilauea is either paused or settling down? Just found this gorgeous thing in my Twitter feed--an Alaskan volcano. Got any more images/videos of red lava, anyone? (Update: AVO clarified in a later tweet that the video was taken...

    Vulcanologist (has to be the coolest and geekiest scientist title ever) are fairly sure that Mt. Agung in Bali will be erupting in the next few days. After visiting Mount St. Helens earlier this year I have a new found appreciation for how much destruction volcanoes can cause. Will be...
