JULY 10 2016/ -- UTC
ALERT! FURTHERON HIGH PROBABILITY OF MAJOR SUBDUCTION QUAKES!!

important notices >

20160504: I am very busy at the moment, Updates may therefore be delayed!

According to NASA, this 24th. 11 year sun spot cycle has probably a " twin peak"- the second in 2015. This project therefore will be prolongued.

THE 11 YEAR SUN SPOT CYCLE-

LAST MAXIMUM ACTIVITY IN: 2012/ 13 NEXT: APPR. in 2024

SOLAR AND TERRESTRIAL BLOG

- activities and major events-

ARCHIVE- OCTOBER 2016

note: as the solar sun spot activity is decreasing now, less major events are expected at least in the next years. (next cycle minimum expected in 2019)

.Therefor, this project is also limited now to basic updates. In July 2014 I decided to update this page only after significant event and changes and to turn this page into an monthly page that will cover significant events and can be archived then in that form.

SOLAR ACTIVITY IN 2016:

   

<< x ray activity >> ( resp. the so called "x- ray background flux") which represents the highest but at all also only a small part of the spectrum of electromagnetic waves emitted by the Sun  dropped- as expected-constantly after the solar sun spot maximum in 2012 and was in the second half of 2016 almost constantly on the B-level.

A comparation with the x ray flux on the same day (< August 28 2016 ) 11 years ago ( 20050828 > ) shows that x- ray background flux during the same period in the last solar cycle 2005 was also mainly around the lower B level and so far not much higher than now.

Differently to 2016, in 2005, there were more fluctuations in x-ray flux and at all more periods with higher xray flux (caused by solar flares). what indicates, there were still more sunspots and active regions on the Sun in 2005. >>

 
Solar surface activity: In 2016, we had just a few stronger flares (never exceeding C level. The solar surface was/ is mainly characterised by large coronal holes with mainly constantly and still ongoing stronger filament eruptions mainly along their edges, where denser solar matter ( maybe produced during the last flare and proton events) is pushed outward by accumulating pressure in the higher energetic layers below. CMEs from these filament eruptions when reaching the earth regularly caused geomagnetic stormings throughout 2016 (see: NOAA alerts)

I cannot say, whether the fluctuations and sometimes high integral electron flux/ accumulation in the geomagnetic field as still observed in 2016 has to do with CMEs from these filament eruptions. I rather suggest, these electrons are still accumulations those began to circle after the stronger proton events until 2015 ( with protons speeds near the speed of light!!) on wider polar orbits from where they even needed years to approach the earth so far, that they get in friction first with the atmosphere and become effective.

euronews/ 20161027:TWO EARTHQUAKES ROCK CENTRAL ITALY

Two strong earthquakes, one measuring 5.4 and two hours later a second measuring 5.9 magnitude have rocked central Italy, damaging buildings and blocking roads. No casualties have been reported. Both tremors which struck in the late evening local time sent residents running into the streets. Officials in the town of Visso, not far from one epicentre, have reported a dozen injuries and the collapse of several old rural churches. Both quakes were located in Marcerata province but were felt across a large swathe of central and southern Italy. They were even strong enough to register more than 150 km south in Rome. An American tourist described what happened: “So it started shaking and I didn`t know and I tapped him and said is this an earthquake happening? We saw that the windows were opening back and forth and the chandelier was rocking back and forth. So we were really surprised”. In one town, the local mayor said some 300 people had gathered in the main square fearful of further quakes. It was just two months ago that a powerful earthquake toppled villages and killed nearly 300 people in the same region. Officials have claimed these latest tremors may well be linked to the same seismic shifts which caused the August quake....read more...

the guardian/ 20161007: Japanese authorities issue alert as Mount Aso volcano rumbles to life  >> webcam

Mount Aso in southern Japan has erupted, belching a column of ash several thousand feet into the air, the latest eruption in one of the world’s most volcanically active countries. The Japan meteorological agency issued its third-highest alert, warning people not to approach the volcano after it rumbled to life early on Saturday. New data points to major eruption of Japanese volcano Read more The meteorologists warned of a heavy ash fall within an area 19 miles (30km) north-east of the mountain, with moderate and light ash falls forecast up to 150 miles away over the next few hours. Mount Aso’s huge caldera dominates the south-western island of Kyushu, where the 5,253ft volcano is a popular tourist spot. Mount Aso previously erupted in September last year after being dormant for 19 years.  >> Aso crater webcam >

The activity of the volcano remains very intense. Magma continues to rise into the lava dome in the summit crater and spill over the SW flank as a broad, viscous lava flow that has by now reached the base of the cone. Detaching masses from the flow generate continuous glowing rockfalls and occasional pyroclastic flows (extremely dangerous and mobile hot block and ash flows). ...read more...  > webcam >

Volcanic ash produced by the eruption of Mexico's Popocatépetl volcano has reached 7.3 km (24 000 feet) above sea level at 14:37 UTC on September 29, 2016. According to the Washington VAAC, ash cloud is moving to the west and northwest of the summit. At 16:00 UTC, CENAPRED reported that during the past 24 hours, seismic records of the surveillance system at Popocatépetl volcano registered 284 low-intensity exhalations with steam, gas and a

this section also refers to quake activities those typically occure since 2011 in a radius of 100- 200 km around the eifel volcano field, while the region in between stays rather calm. This typically indicates the possibiltiy of hot magma with in the area in between that radius where NO Seimic quakes occure .- Hot magma makes no seismic effects but causes tensions and seismic quakes just on its bondaries where it meets with colder rock formations.

EXPLANATIONS>

Green backcolored fields marks those regions where geomagnetic field density values during the CME impact was below 100 nT.

Yellow backcolored fields mark the regions with values above 100 nT./

Red backcolored field mark the regions , those were hit relatively strongest ( peak values) by the latest SEP/ CME . Colors from orange to light red mark GRADUAL IMPACTS OF MULTIPLE CMEs CLUSTERS.

 

HOW TO READ THIS FORECAST>

INCREASES IN VOLCANIC ACTIVITIES will - if- most probably occure - SOON AFTER CME impact- within the RED colored regions and between the red and yellow regions!

STORMS, ICE MELTINGS AN FLOODINGS might- if- then most probably occureSOON AFTER CME impacts-within the RED COLORED REGIONS

The relatively strongest EARTHQUAKE ACTIVITIES WILL MOST PROBABLY occure AFTER a LATENCY period due to CME IMPACT on the TECTONIC BOUNDARIES within the RED until the YELLOW (backcolored) REGIONS. Read "latency remarks"

NASA/ 20151008/ NASA's Curiosity Rover Team Confirms Ancient Lakes on Mars

A new study from the team behind NASA's Mars Science Laboratory/Curiosity has confirmed that Mars was once, billions of years ago, capable of storing water in lakes over an extended period of time.

Using data from the Curiosity rover, the team has determined that, long ago, water helped deposit sediment into Gale Crater, where the rover landed more than three years ago. The sediment deposited as layers that formed the foundation for Mount Sharp, the mountain found in the middle of the crater today.

"Observations from the rover suggest that a series of long-lived streams and lakes existed at some point between about 3.8 to 3.3 billion years ago, delivering sediment that slowly built up the lower layers of Mount Sharp," said Ashwin Vasavada, Mars Science Laboratory project scientist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, and co-author of the new Science article to be published Friday, Oct. 9.

The findings build upon previous work that suggested there were ancient lakes on Mars, and add to the unfolding story of a wet Mars, both past and present. Last month, NASA scientists confirmedcurrent water flows on Mars.

SPECIAL REPORTS: (MORE)FREAKY MARS IMAGES/ by NASA/ Curiosity find more in previous month`s archive

 

     

A group of youtube people are just waiting for the next super high resolution image the rover sends home, most people as obviously also the NASA staff does oftenly not take much notice of. Curiosity`s images have such a high resolution that you can search and magnify on them each detail and its just incredible what people find on these images:

Just watch the video( right side): I just can`t prove whether the "vehicle" oin this photo might be a a fake!>

Beside the jokes made upon these discoveries like the video with " the green frog" that survived on Mars after its water channels had dried out, some of these dicoveries just knocked me out of my shoes. Best source for those images on youtube is the channel what`s up in the sky.

However: Its meanwhile in all news and obviously noone could approve yet , that those images would have been faked with an photo editing software!

   
for longer time I have not updated myself on the latest of NASA curiosity rover Mars mission. Now I found some articles with some indeed strange images Curiosity sent to Earth your can try to find more on NASA jpl.(officially NASA seems not to be so interested...)
