- activities and major events-

SEPTEMBER 2014

 

note: as the solar sun spot activity is decreasing now, major events will get less at least until May June 2014

.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.

20140920: ( img 1) a group of active regions has rotated in on the Southeastern limb ans seems to be quite active. AR 12171- 12173 was already there during previous rotation periods (img 2- 4) and is obviously one of the nestled sun spot groups those dive up and fade again and these usually are very active and capable for SEPs.

  (1) electron flux/ 20140921- 24 integral proton flux/ 20140922- 24            

20140922: (img 02) another minor SEP occured on September 22. The source is unknown and no related flares activity was observed on the front side . The event likely happened behind the western limb, where SDO noticed a radiation shock at 6:38 on Sep 22. . (img. 3) First protons arrived at Earth after 9 UTC. The event was with 2 pfu. rather weak and values returned back to normal (+/- 0.1 pfu.) on Sep 24, but caused some geomagnetic storming and new turbulences in the electron flux.

20140923: (img. 01) after the > 0.8 Me V Electrons began to increase already on Sep 221, now also the > 10 MeV Electron flux and will likely exceed treshold of 1.000 pfu the next days. The accumulation of electrons from the interplanetary magnetic field follows the 3 recent SEPs on Aug 21, Sep 01 and 11. HOwever. SEPs can put everything upside down....Electrons accumulate then mainly above the Northern pole where they mostly cause temperature anomalies and dramatic turbulences in the Weather systems mainly of the Northern hemisphere, intensice rainfalls on the barrier between vold and hopt air-and e extraordinary warm and weather in other regions . ALso more sudden tornadoes or thunder (storms) with strong and extreme lightenings are likely to occure dutring the nextr days and weels . With values above 1.000 also effects on power grids and other devices capable to accumulate electrons are possible

electron flux/ 20140919- 21
NASA/ global D_RAP (REAL TIME feature)
^NASA/ISWA/animation of interplanetary CME evolution a.m.o  

20140919/ 20 : The fast Protons from the recent SEP on Sep 10 are still active in the geomagnetic field but are likely still too fast (on an higher orbit ) to get much in friction/ in touch with the geomagetic field to cause the typical effects yet as hot spot volcanism . Hot spot volcanism might therfore more or less suddenly increase in the coming days.

The integral electron flux however is under high tension and electron s again seem even to be in negative values ( what does not mean these electrons are inactive!) These electron can sporadically discharge with major thunderstorms and other features and even cause sporadic overcharges ( induced currents) to installations and devices capable to accumulate electrons.

( 20140920) OTHER NEWS: Some minor CMEs have impacted and at time of this update ( 20140919/ 7:19) another CMEs seems to arrive.

20140915: The integral proton flux that increased again on Sep 10 after 21 UTC has meanwhile eased and values have almost returned back to normal.

20130913: The fully halo CME of the strong X 1 flare from the central meridian on Sep 10 has reached the earth on Sept 12 after 18 UTC and was with more than 200 nT the strongest earth directed CME of the past two years.

20140911: (uncorrected draft) The proton storm caused by an eruption near the Northern solar pole on September 01 has eased after 10 days and values are returning back to normal. The logical consequence of each proton storm ( solar SEP) the accumulation of electrons to balance the powers in matter again, has unusually set in this time already during the Proton strom was still going on, probable by electrons those accumulated from previous SEPs ( last major previous event was a strong serial of SEPs that ended in May 2004). > 2 Me V Electrons have reached almost the NASA defined treshold of 1.000 pfu. and geophysical effects will therefor intensify during the next days and weeks,. Those typical effects are. strong thunderstorms and extreme lightenings, heat anomalies around the Northern pole causing temporary slow downs in then sea currents, with an heat exchange over the atmosphere as consequence ( see earlier reports) Depending on the further intensity of the integral electron flux also induced currents can cause electrical effects with possible overvoltage damages in devices capable to accumulate these electrons such as power grids pipelines or larger ships on high sea. This phase II of an SEP might last for 3- 4 weeks, until these electrons are slown downs so far that they finally discharge to the ground and where they finally will form wit the accumulated protons neutrons isotopes. Usually SEPs occure in serials and further SEPs will follow until the end of 2014, accumulate their energies and charges.What is described as SEP, Phase III ( final discharge) will only occure, if NO further SEPs occursWARNING: This phase III of a solar SEP ( "final discharge) usually comes - if tghen- very apruptly and nmight very likely be accomponied by strong or even extreme earthquakes up to a magnitude of > M 8 on continents and > M 9 subseas.

20140907: THe proton storm that started on Sep 01 still continues. It was the event with the lowest protons acceleration I have recorded since 2012. THis low acceleration was, what also caused the electron accumulation to begion and integrakl electrons to rise almost at the same time. Corresponding with the ongoing proton impact with fluctuations , > 10 MeV electrons repeatedly reached treshold levels of > 1.000 pfu during the last days, while the proton storm is still going on. 20140905: a large filament eruption was observed on September 04, with a filament reaching over a quarter of the solar disc was thrown out into spasce., The part of that CME arrived on September 06 and impacted with almost 140 nT. 20140901: (image 05) One SEP ( solar proton event) seldom comes alone. They occure mostly in serials. So- also the SEP on August 25- the first after an half year calmity was followed by a stronger one on September 01.

The SEP- a long duration event- occured most likely already prior to 12 UTC near to the northern pole and the protons acceleration therefore was rather uncommonly low, as not observed before. This might have to do with the sun spot activitydcreasing again after its peak in 2013.NASA D RAP also shows the heat impact of these protons begin much later than usually- more than day after the solar event to heat up the Earts atmosphere and polar regions ( what also indicates that these protons had rather low speed of just 1000- 3000 km/ second) NASAs stereo AHEAD satellite had a blackout after 10:51 UTC. but STEREO Behind shows a large explosion beginning after 11 UTC. . First protons of the event however arrived on September 01 after 21 UTC. Values reached about 1 pfu. ( 10 x higher than normal) on September 02. The proton storm lasts now several days. The impact can cause immidiate heat effects around the (Southern resp Northern Polar region and will lead to a (further) increase of volcanism from hot spots ( magma intrusion)

Allthough such a proton eruption is the strongest known solar energetic event event related to the existence of sun spots , the event itself is hard to detect on satellite images. SEPs those happen deeper with ths suns gas hull- also triggers many secondary effects on the surface , and are so often confused with solar flares. The protons ( hydrogen cores) emmited with that event are accelerated near to the speed of light, Nevertheless they don`t have much (and therefore don`t carry) own energy ( such as electrons do) what makes them almost invisible. The proton impact on Earth is measurable (GOES) and SEPs also get someway visible by their secondary effects such as "snow" ( bright traces of accelerated particles. those hit the lenses of the telescopes mounted on solar satellites.

------------------------------

20140827: The impact of solar protons and CMEs from the events on August 25 has caused minor geomagnetic storming

20140826: (img 4) a minor CME impacted from the solar CME and SEP event on August 25 : protons impacting with the event caused another temporary collapse of the integral electron flux

20140825: A minor SEP occured along with stronger solar flaring and CMEs on August 25. FIrst protons of the event arrived on August 25 after 18 UTC and reached a level of 1 pfu ( 10 x higher than usual). the event that triggered the SEP was likely at 2014 Aug 25 1458 UTC ( time of solar radio burst). The earth directed proton storm ended also already oin day later ( Aug 26) and ( for itself) is not expected to have strong effects. But it meets and environment best describable as " proton charge " and electron anomalities from the serials of strong SEP at begin of the year those are still effective. Thus, this minor sEP might enhance and resume still latent effects such as volcano activities ,mainly magma intrusion . With the final discharge ( should it come so far) the contraction of the heated tectonic plates ( those coold down then) might cause stronger subduction quakes with an likelyness of one event reaching M 9.0 subseas or > M 8.0 on continents.

LATEST: 20140825: California earthquake strikes San Francisco Bay area

BBC/ 20140825: California earthquake strikes San Francisco Bay area

An earthquake with a magnitude of 6.0 has shaken northern California, causing injuries and damage to buildings. The USGS said it struck at 03:20 local time (10:20 GMT) four miles (6km) north-west of the town of American Canyon, at a depth of 6.7 miles. At least 87 people have been taken to hospital in the Napa area, a renowned wine-producing region and tourist area. California Governor Jerry Brown has declared a state of emergency in order to deal with the effects of the quake. Officials in Napa said in a statement that the quake - believed to be the biggest in the region in 25 years - had destroyed four mobile homes and made 16 buildings "uninhabitable", as well as causing "approximately 50" gas main breaks and around 30 leaks from water mains. The clear-up operation will begin in earnest on Monday....find more...

(FOX NEWS/ 20140916) Rapid Wildfire Shuts Down I-5 in Siskiyou County

WEED- A fast moving wildfire has shut down Interstate 5 in the Siskiyou County town of Weed. In a matter of hours, the Boles Fire has damaged or destroyed over 100 structures. As of 9 p.m. Monday night, the fire is at 15% containment, and has burned 350 acres. CAL FIRE spokesperson Daniel Berlant called FOX40 to share the developing details of the fire. According to Berlant, the fire started near Weed around 1:30 p.m. on Monday. Gusts in the region of 40 miles per hour pushed the fire right into the town, and that is how it damaged so many homes and buildings so quickly. Evacuations are in order for the town of Weed as well as areas throughout the southern part of Siskiyou County. 1,500-3,000 residents have been evacuated already.

 
   

MAJOR TROPICAL STORMS:

LATEST: 20140915: Dangerous Category 3 Odile Bearing Down on Baja

wunderground/ 20140915: Dangerous Category 3 Odile Bearing Down on Baja

Dangerous Category 3 Hurricane Odile is bearing down on Mexico's Baja Peninsula as the storm steams north-northwestwards at 14 mph towards the southwestern tip of Baja. Odile is likely to be the strongest or second strongest hurricane on record to affect Southern Baja. An Air Force hurricane hunter plane was in Odile Sunday afternoon, and measured top surface winds of 125 mph, with a surface pressure of 922 mb. This pressure puts Odile in pretty select company--only two other Eastern Pacific hurricanes have had lower pressures measured in them by the Hurricane Hunters--though a total of eleven Eastern Pacific hurricanes have had lower pressures, if we include satellite-estimated pressures. The only major hurricane on record to affect Southern Baja was Hurricane Kiko of 1989, which moved ashore on the Gulf of California side of the peninsula just south of La Paz as a Category 3 storm with 120 mph winds.....find more...

MANILA - A strong typhoon slammed into the rice-producing Philippine northern region on Sunday, cutting power and communications lines and forcing people to flee to higher ground, national disaster agency officials said. Packing central winds of 130 kph and gusts of up to 160 kph, Typhoon Kalmaegi made landfall early evening Sunday in Isabela province, dumping heavy rains that soaked farms, said Alexander Pama, executive director of the national disaster risk reduction and management council. Halmaegi, known locally as "Luis", is moving west northwest at 22 kph, but is expected to weaken and lose speed as it will cross a mountainous region before exiting into the South China Sea. - ...read more...

 
 

 

 

 

SEPTEMBER 2014: : LATEST VOLCANO REPORTS

LATEST: 20140928/Over 30 people feared dead near Japanese volcano after eruption

(Russia Today/ 20140928) Over 30 people feared dead near Japanese volcano after eruption

Over 30 people are feared dead near the erupting Ontake volcano in central Japan, police reported. The volcano started erupting on Saturday, sending ash clouds down the mountain’s slope for more than 3 kilometers. Volcano erupts in central Japan, dozens injured (VIDEO, PHOTOS) The people were found by police officers in a state of "cardiopulmonary arrest” near the top of the volcano, NHK national news reported. “We have confirmed that more than 30 individuals in cardiac arrest have been found near the summit,” a spokesman for Nagano prefecture police told AFP. Hundreds of people, including children, were left stranded near the top of the volcano, police told NHK. Most of them made their way down Saturday evening.---read more...

 

UPDATE: 20140928: Activity at Bardabunga Caldera is significantly DECREASING since Sep 25/ 26,

while the Yellowstone caldera had on September 27 the most intensive steam emissions since the new activity phase began in 2014. The much steam rising everywhere copuld also be caused by rainfalls falling on a warm ground

(INTERNAL) : 20140923/NEW AND LONG FISSURE OPENED UP in Iceland `s Barbardunga caldera west of the main central eruption hole , emitting steam..

its someway interesting to observe, how and volcanic eruption takes place and developes in an old caldera such as the huge Barbardunga Caldera. In August a long stretched magma bubble had surged up to the surface right through the middle of the former last known crater of the volcano which had collapsed after a major explosion in historical times. After some first had opened up , from those the molten ice boiled up and steam was emitted. Then. in early September a central hole formed out right in the middle of the magma bubble with a continuing lava eruptions emitting smoke steam and unhealthy gazes . The intensity of the eruptions fluctuates ( this kind of pulse is also observable in the Yellostone caldera)

 

Images of this new fissure are not available yet. I have made continuing video records since the eruption began, but yet had now time to edit these files for a youtube clip.

 

WallStreetJournal20140911/ Iceland Volcanic Eruption Sending Toxic Gases Throughout Region

Foul-smelling gases from a volcanic eruption in Iceland are pestering the region, reaching Norway and Finland more than a thousand kilometers away. Unusually high concentrations of volcanic gases from the continuing Holuhraun eruption have been detected as far away as Finland. In Iceland, health authorities are urging locals near the volcano to stay inside due to significant levels of sulfur in the air. Gas emissions from the eruption site remain high and can be life-threatening for scientists working there. Unpredictable winds caused by the hot lava can lead to sharp spikes in dangerous gas concentrations. The workers are forced to wear gas masks and personal gas monitors, and have evacuated the site repeatedly...Currently, the Holuhraun eruption is emitting volcanic gases such as sulfur dioxide, carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide, which smell of rotten eggs....read all...

(Dailymail/ 20140911)Residents living in Hawaii prepare for lava flows from nearby erupting Kilauea Volcano to cut off their community on the Big Island

  • Lava from a vent has come within a mile of the edge of the Ka'ohe Homesteads subdivision
  • Hawaii County Mayor Billy Kenoi declares an emergency, asks Governor Neil Abercrombie for help
  • U.S. Geological Survey says the lava could reach a subdivision boundary in less than a week
  • No evacuations have been ordered, but access to roadways to the community is restricted

Businesses in a small Hawaii town are facing a slow-motion disaster as lava from Kilauea volcano oozes toward roads connecting them to the rest of the Big Island. Tiffany Edwards Hunt, who owns a surf shop with her husband, said the lava could hit buildings while smoke from fires sparked by the lava cold damage merchandise. If lava crosses the highway leading into town, it could cut the town off. 'There is the threat of his very historic, very quaint, eclectic village becoming a ghost town because of the isolation,' Hunt said after a meeting between merchants and county civil defense authorities.

Meltwater
Hydrological measurements at Jökulsá Á Fjöllum, Upptypingar do not indicate a contribution of
geothermal/volcanic gases to the hydrological system that is outside of the typical range observed
in the last decade until now. Water melting from the glacier/lava interactions could reach this
station after 0-20 hours.
Seismic tremor
Starting at 11:18, seismic tremor was observed at 1 and 1.5 Hz. This is consistent with lava/ice
interaction. and is similar to the tremor observed during the Fimmvörðuháls eruption and the lava
flowing phase of the Eyjafjallajökull eruption. We are not observing explosions in the tremor data,
which suggests it is a relatively small volume of lava in contact with the ice.
Earthquakes
The frequency of earthquakes is so high, that the events are overlapping in time, and it is difficult to
discern individual events. We are currently interpreting the depth of the majority of earthquakes

3.3 EXPERIMENTAL EVENT FORECAST (2): GEOGRAPHIC IMPACT REGIONS WITH THE CONSIDERABLE HIGHEST CME EFFECTS BY THE LATEST CME IMPACT:

LATEST RELATED CME(SEP IMPACT 20140107/20140218-20/ 20140225 01- 04/ 14

 

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 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"

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 10/2100Z to 11/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet to active levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed, as measured by the ACE spacecraft, reached a peak speed of 404 km/s at 11/0248Z. Total IMF reached 9 nT at 10/2252Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -7 nT at 11/0356Z. Protons greater than 10 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 28 pfu at 11/0515Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 154 pfu. IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at unsettled to major storm levels on day one (12 Sep), active to severe storm levels on day two (13 Sep) and unsettled to minor storm levels on day three (14 Sep). Protons are expected to cross threshold on days one and two (12 Sep, 13 Sep) and are expected to cross threshold on day three (14 Sep).

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 05/2100Z to 06/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet to unsettled levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed, as measured by the ACE spacecraft, reached a peak speed of 430 km/s at 06/2049Z. Total IMF reached 11 nT at 06/1531Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -9 nT at 06/0512Z. Protons greater than 10 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 9 pfu at 06/0740Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 286 pfu. IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet to minor storm levels on day one (07 Sep), quiet to unsettled levels on day two (08 Sep) and quiet levels on day three (09 Sep). Protons are expected to cross threshold on day one (07 Sep), are likely to cross threshold on day two (08 Sep) and have a chance of crossing threshold on day three (09 Sep).

CURRENT SEP/ PROTON EFFECTS May 23- 2014: Protons- particulary from the high speed SEP on APR 18. partic. also from minor recent solar eruptions (AR 12071) are still active in the geomagnetic field with an increase of magmatic activities at the same time. At 22 UTC a sudden increase of electron density likely marked the end of the effectivity these protons had in the geomagneticmfield over the last days and weeks  
ELECTRON EFFECTS>

20140610: integral electrons flux signficantly began to rise and might reach tresholds soon in the coming days. The increase followed a strong depression of the electron flux by former SEP and solar protons effects and indicate that these protons effects those lasted for more than 1 month are over now. hot spot activities have again dcreased yet in the last weeks The electron accumulation now will bring again high temperatures and droughts to the Northern hemisphere, as welll as sudden tornadoes, thunderstorms . I am not sure, how the high tension of the integral electron fluxmight induce cururents into ships on high seas power grids and other electric devices but several servers ship incidents those occured during electron accumulations in the greomag field suggest that ea. are capable for.

The current state of particles within the geomag. field is after quite a dozen part. accumulating SEPs since autum 2013 is rather confusing and data plots dont`t allow exact results.

might persist for several weeks now after those these electrons will finally discharge. This last SEP phase expected in about 3 weeks sometime end of June 2014 ( if no further solar SEPs occures) with cooling down of and contraction effects on the affected tectonic plates those likely finally will trigger strong and CATASTROPHIC earthquakes with magnitudes above M 9!!

20140607: The integral electron flux dropped again into negative values and continued so since JUne 03. The source of the disturbance are likely protons still active either from previous events or from recent solar protons emissions into interplanetary space

20140523/ 22 UTC There was a sudden increase of the integral electron flux after 22 UTC. There was no similar related event found on ACE data , thus the increase seems not to be related to a solar event, but rather marks the end of the effectivity , solar protons had on the geomagnetic field during the last days and weeks

20140523: During the second half of May 2014 , electrons were first rising as expected following the strong high speed SEP on April 18 ( with protons almost at the speed of light) . After May 17, the electron energy was again neutralized by those still active and after May 23 also by newly incoming protons ( activities in AR 12071) and fell into minus values, what does not mean, that these electrons would lose their cinetic energy by that . They rather get compressed and electrically neutralised by protons circulating with the field lines , what at least temporarely hampers their ability to cause thunderstorms and strong tornadoes or induced currents.

Temperature anomalies around the Northern pole continue since end of 2013 and brought again climatical extremes to the medium latitudes.

 
orange background >means: The electron effects of the last SEO were overlapsed by new SEP eventand currently deactivated or: HIGH SPEED SEP. Protons are still to fastto envolve significant effects  
SEP EVENT HISTORY :
   
20140418/
13:19 UTC
complex nested solar region AR 12036 (35- 37 produced and M 7,.8 LDE flare peaking with a CME at 13:19 UTC. The event was associated with a medium strong SEP. First Protons arrived soon after 13 uTC- thus were accelerated near to the speed of light,due to the fact , that the eruption took place near the central solar meridian and the proton speed is highest radially to the eruption center. means, that some proton effects such as hot spot activities will delay resp takle place slowly
 
20140413- 16
 
The integral Electron flux began to increase after strongly been compressed by active protons. (20140415) Integral electron flux is expected to exceed treshold of 1.000 pfu on 20140416
 
20140405
after 12 UTC
Proton flux slightly increased to max 1.0 pfu after solar event
 
20140325
08 UTC
Integral,proton flux rose after CME event on 20140324 to values up to 1 pfu.

Integral proton flux has decreased to normal values after March 07. But the high amount of protons those impacted during this long lasting proton storm ist still effective with heat in the earth body and mantle .Hot spot activities are still present on the Canary islands. The proton influence also still knocks down the integral electron flux to zero and even into negative values. There is a slight recovery of the electron since March 17 . Values will further increase and exceed 100 pfu at any time in about 1 or two weeks ( SEP phase II) , if no new SEP occures.

Integral Proton flux increased further on February 28 and reached 100 pfu early in the morning. I have not reviewed the solar events yet. but protons storms/ eruptions are what I call " the invisible eruption"

20140517/ Damaging earthquake near Darmstadt, Germany

Moderates Erdbeben in Darmstadt (Hessen) – Schäden an Dächern, Risse in Wänden – Damaging earthquake near Darmstadt, Germany

Update 06:13 UTC: Ein Haus in Nieder-Beerbach gilt nach Medienberichten infolge der Erdbebenschäden als unbewohnbar.

Update May 18th, 05:46 UTC: Die Meldung des Hessischen Rundfunks einer eingestürzten Fassade hat sich als Falschmeldung herausgestellt. Dennoch sind die Schäden (für Deutsche Verhältnisse) erheblich: An mindestens 35 Häusern bildeten sich Risse, 10 Schornsteine sind eingestürzt. Die Feuerwehr war bis in die Nacht im Einsatz. Eine Erhöhung der Schadenssumme könnte noch folgen. Verletzt wurde zum Glück niemand.

Update 20:35 Uhr: Stellenweise waren die Schäden schwerer als erwartet. Wie der HR berichtet, ist in Mühltal die Fassade eines Hauses teilweise eingestürzt. Andere Gebäude wurden beschädigt. Statiker überprüfen zur Zeit, wie schwer die Schäden sind und ob Handlungsbedarf besteht.

Update 19:27 UTC: Aus Darmstadt gibt es Meldungen von einem Kamin, der einsturzgefährdet ist, sowie einen Riss in einem Wohnhaus. Auch bei uns unter den Zeugenberichten (Siehe unten) sind Meldungen von leichten Schäden. Es ist typisch, dass das gesamte Ausmaß der Schäden erst Tage nach einem Beben bekannt wird. Entsprechend sind die vorläufigen Angaben von nur einzelnen Schäden nicht als Zeichen anzusehen, dass alles gut ausgegangen ist.

Das Schüttergebiet dieses Bebens reicht beeindruckend weit nach Süden, bis in die Gebiete um Stuttgart (120 km) und Heilbronn (80 km). Im Norden scheint der Taunus (50 km) die Grenze zu bilden. In Bayern wird vor allem im Raum Aschaffenburg (40 km) vom Beben berichtet. Westlich des Epizentrums hingegen gibt es nach 20 bis 25 Kilometern kaum noch Meldungen über Spürbarkeit. Genaues ist in der Karte unter diesem Bericht dargestellt.

Update 18:54 UTC: In Nieder-Beerbach ist die Feuerwehr zur Zeit vor allem mit der Sicherung von beschädigten Schornsteinen beschäftigt, wie Medien berichten. Die Ortseinfahrt wurde zu dem Zweck gesperrt. Glücklicherweise scheinen keine Menschen bei dem Beben verletzt worden zu sein.

Update 18:38 UTC: Ein wenig zur Tektonik dieses Erdbebens: Ursache war eine horizontale Bewegung entlang einer Verwerfung. Das heißt zwei Segmente der Erdkruste haben sich horizontal aneinander vorbei bewegt. Dieser Vorgang ist typisch für Erdbeben an der berühmten San Andreas Verwerfung in Kalifornien und der Nordanatolischen Verwerfung im Norden der Türkei (Istanbul). Das gefährliche an diesen Beben ist, dass sie meist nur wenige Kilometer unter der Erdoberfläche ihren Ursprung (Hypozentrum) haben und somit praktisch “ungebremst” die Oberfläche erreichen und dort zu Schäden führen. Je länger die Verwerfung, an der sich die Erdkruste bewegt, umso stärker ist das Erdbeben. In Deutschland sind diese Verwerfungen nicht so groß, dass die zu katastrophalen Ereignissen führen können. Aber dass dennoch Potential in ihren steckt, wurde heute eindrucksvoll bewiesen.

Update : The Focal Mechanism of this earthquake shows clearly a shallow strike-slip earthquake type. This type of earthquakes is the most dangerous type. At the current Magnitude the damage is luckily limited.

Update 18:28 UTC: Die meisten Einsätze hat die Feuerwehr zur Zeit im Ort Nieder-Beerbach (Ortsteil der Gemeinde Mühltal) südlich von Darmstadt. Dort sollen auch Schornsteine eingestürzt sein.

Update 18:14 UTC: Weiterhin sind nur wenig Details über die verursachten Gebäudeschäden bekannt. Die Feuerwehr hat diese auf jeden Fall schon mal bestätigt. Wie viele es gab und wie schwer diese waren, wurde noch nicht bekannt. Nachdem was bisher bekannt wurde, dürften dutzende Gebäude, vor allem in Darmstadt, betroffen sein.

Update 18:01 UTC: Auch bei uns sind zwei Meldungen über Schäden eingegangen:

Darmstadt – Es hat sich angefühlt als hätte jemand das Haus genommen und es durchgeschüttelt, fanden im nachhinein mehrere risse in den Wänden

Seeheim-Jugenheim – Habe gerade (ca. 18:45 Uhr) draußen auf dem Balkon (Holzbalken) gesessen. Unser Fachwerkhaus wackelte so sehr, dass ich dachte, es klappt zusammen. Viele Leute in unserer Straße liefen aus ihren Häusern heraus. Wir alle waren sehr erschrocken. Im Nachhinein stellten wir fest, dass sich Gegenstände verschoben hatten. Eine Wand wies einen kleinen Riss auf.

Danke an alle Zeugen und Betroffene, die sich bei uns melden. Wir hoffen, dass es keine gravierende Folgen des Erdbebens gibt.

Update 17:55 UTC: Geofon hat das Beben nochmals korrigiert, diesmal wieder auf M 4.2 hochgestuft. Ob 3.9 oder 4.2: Dieses Beben ist das stärkste in Deutschland seit fast 3 Jahren und das stärkste in Hessen seit Jahrzehnten!

Update 17:53 UTC: Auf Twitter gibt es Meldungen, wonach Feuerwehren im Mühltal wegen eingestürzter Schornsteinen und rissigen Wänden im Einsatz sind.

Update 17:49 UTC: Das Landesamt für Geologie und Bergbau Rheinland-Pfalz nennt nun Magnitude 3.9 (wenn auch nur als vorläufige automatische Angabe). Daten lokaler Erdbebendienste sind meist präziser und daher zu bevorzugen.

Update 17:45 UTC: Stichwort Nachbeben: Bei Ereignissen um Magnitude 4 ist es recht wahrscheinlich, dass es in den Stunden / Tagen danach zu spürbaren Nachbeben kommt. Diese dürften im Bereich von Magnitude 2 bis 2.5 liegen. Auch nicht ausgeschlossen werden kann, dass weitere Erdbeben folgen. In den Jahren 1869 bis 1871 spielte sich im Odenwald ein Erdbebenschwarm ab, wo es hunderte Male teils stark bebte. Entsprechend wurden auch einige Schäden rund um Darmstadt und Worms, teils sogar im Rhein-Main Gebiet verursacht.

Update 17:36 UTC: Medien berichten, dass bei Polizei und Feuerwehr zahlreiche Notrufe eingegangen sind. Auch einige Schadensberichte sollen dabei sein, größere Schäden wurden aber noch nicht gemeldet.

Update 17:33 UTC: Wir bitten alle Leser, die dieses Erdbeben gespürt haben, uns dies über das unten auf dieser Seite stehende Kontaktformular mitzuteilen. Dort können sie auch die Meldungen anderer Zeugen lesen, als Liste sowie in einer interaktiven Karte.

Bei den Magnitudenangaben gab es anfangs einige Verwirrung. Während Geofon vorläufig M 4.4 angab, später auf 3.6 korrigierte, nennt USGS Magnitude 4.1. Lokale Erdbebendienste, wie das rheinland-pfälzische Landesamt für Geologie und Bergbau, liefern noch keine Angaben.

Update 17:23 UTC: Viele Zeugen berichten, dass sie das Erdbeben als moderat bis stark empfunden haben. Dies ist zum einen der Magnitude und der flachen Tiefe geschuldet, und zum anderen der Tatsache, dass dieses Beben eines der stärksten in dieser Region seit vielen Jahren war.
Wir erwarten zumindest leichte Gebäudeschäden in Form von Rissen in Wänden, etc.

Update 17:19 UTC: Erst Ende März wurde Hessen von einem leichten Erdbeben mit M 3.2 erschüttert, welches minimale Schäden an einigen Gebäuden verusachte. Das Epizentrum damals lag bei Ober-Ramstadt, südlich von Darmstadt.
Die Region befindet sich am Oberrheingraben, einer Dehnungszone der Erdkruste, die sich Quer durch Deutschland und angrenzende Regionen zieht, wo regelmäßig leichte seismische Aktivität verzeichnet wird.

Update 17:01 UTC : Local GFZ reports a Magnitude of M3.6 at a depth of 10 km. ER considers these preliminary values moderately dangerous for slight damage like cracks in walls, fallen plaster, falling tiles etc.

Ein moderates Erdbeben mit Magnitude 3.6 traf um 18.46 Uhr Ortszeit den Süden von Hessen und angrenzende Regionen. Das Epizentrum des Bebens lag auf dem Stadtgebiet von Darmstadt. Nach Zeugenangaben waren die Erschütterungen des Bebens bis nach Frankfurt am Main, knapp 25 km nördlich des Epizentrums, spürbar.

20140516 Flaming object falls to Earth over Queensland and 'hits like a bomb'

(ABC- news/ au/ 20140516) Flaming object most likely to be satellite debris falls to Earth over Queensland and 'hits like a bomb'

Residents from across central and northern Queensland have reported seeing a huge flaming object fall from the sky and hit the ground "like a bomb". They say they saw what appeared to be a massive ball with a blue and orange tail in the sky about 6:30pm (AEST) yesterday as it plunged towards the ground. Residents from Cunnamulla to Townsville have reported seeing the object, but there have been no reports of any debris found on the ground. Mount Isa resident Virginia Hills says she accidentally photographed the phenomenon. "Just happened to be - very fluky and one of those multiple shots of the moon that I was taking - rising up coming over the horizon," she said....read more...

10140515/ Deadly floods hit eastern Europe

Heavy rainfall has sparked severe flooding across large parts of eastern Europe.

In Serbia, more than four months average of rain fell on Wednesday forcing authorities to declare a nationwide state of emergency.

At least one firefighter was killed during a rescue operation on the Jasenica River. The body of another man was recovered from the Danube in Novi Sad.

Several Bosnian cities have also been badly affected by floods caused by what is thought to be the heaviest rains of the past century....read more...

 
   
(20140515) Watch: amateur footage captures raging Californian wildfires

Raging wildfires across southern California have forced thousands of people to abandon their homes.

In San Diego county, authorities are increasingly concerned as the wildfires come in the midst of one of the state’s worst droughts on record.

As temperatures soared, nine fires had burned more than 9,000 acres in the county by late Wednesday.

Another blaze, called Tomahawk, broke out on the Camp Pendleton Marine Base north of San Diego and charred roughly 6,000 acres, prompting the evacuation of military housing and a naval weapons station.

 
   
LATEST EARTHQUAKE & VOLCANO REPORTS

Volcano- discovery/ 20140509- 12

Cerro Negro de Mayasquer (Colombia): (10 May) The seismic crisis under the volcano continues. Thousands of small earthquakes, both volcano-tectonic (due to rock fracturing caused by magma pressure) and long-period (due to fluid movements) earthquakes continue to be registered. 
Colombian and Ecuadorian scientists believe it could be related to shallow magma intrusions. At present, no other signs of unrest that could suggest an eruption in a near or medium future have been detected. 

Etna (Sicily, Italy): Near-continuous weak strombolian activity is visible from the New SE crater. Tremor is currently low.

Reventador (Ecuador): (9 May) The activity of the volcano had increased during the past two weeks, producing several lava flows and some relatively strong explosions. 

Ubinas (Peru): (9 May) The current eruptive phase might be approaching an end. Since the second half of April, visual and seismic activity at the volcano have been decreasing. 

Zavodovski (South Sandwich Islands (UK)): (9 May) A NASA satellite image from 19 April shows that some activity (strombolian explosions, small lava lake?) was present on the remote volcano in the South Sandwich islands

 
 
 
 
 
   
Melting of Antarctic ice sheet and 3-meter sea level rise inevitable - study

(RT/ 20140512) Melting of Antarctic ice sheet and 3-meter sea level rise inevitable - study

Massive regions of the ice sheet that makes up West Antarctica have begun collapsing in a process that scientists have worried about for decades and fear is likely unstoppable. Researchers warned that the accelerated pace of disintegration is expected to remain relatively slow over the next 100 years, although after that point it will speed up so fast that it could become a major issue for seaside cities. Ocean levels could rise by at least three meters, according to two papers scheduled for publication this week in the Science and Geophysical Research Letters. “This is really happening,” Thomas P. Wagner, chief of the NASA program on polar ice, told the New York Times Monday. “There’s nothing to stop it now. But you are still limited by the physics of how fast the ice can flow.”...read more...

 
 
 
   
Turkey mine accident caused by transformer fire : hope of finding new survivors fades
Rescuers pulled more dead and injured from a coal mine in western Turkey after an explosion killed at least 200 people and trapped scores more. Turkey’s energy minister says there is less and less hope of finding new survivors in one of the country’s worst mining accidents. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has cancelled other commitments to travel to the site of the disaster. The blast is thought to have been caused by an electrical fault which then triggered a power cut making the lifts unusable and leaving miners stranded some two kilometres underground.

LAND SURFACE TEMPERATURE ANOMALY [2014] (APRIL) ^sakurajjima/ 20140512    
         
                 

Did technical failures such as GPS blackouts and induced currents cause the Corean ferry disaster?

COREAN Ferry came out of course and collided with and rock, say the survivors of the second big ship disaster in two years that was very similar as the Costa concordia incident:

( read BBC/ 20140417) South Korea ferry: Messages from a sinking ship

here just two citations from this article confirmiung that obvioulsy a colission caused the sinking of the ship::

Student: "The ship ran into something and it's not moving. They say the coast guard just arrived."

"There was a really loud noise and then the boat immediately began to shift to one side," said rescued passenger, Kim Song-Muk. "People were scrambling to get to the upper decks, but it was difficult with the deck slanted over."-

and again responsibles and investigators ignore any possibility of any technical failure ( are our technics today really unfailable or do they just want to make sure to cash the insurances?)

HOWEVER At at time with so many geological events and changes as now every possibility must be considered and proven

here some very strange facts saying at least clearly: THERE WAS A TECHNICAL MALEFUNCTION!!

 

The arrested female 3. officer who had the command at that time declared:"The ship came our of Course ( autopilot/ GPS But when I tried to correct the course , the ship " reacted and beganto turn much faster as it normally would ( source german TV I have not find an online article yet I could post)

have the electric controllers received an induced current ( overvoltage at that time as it was measured within the geomagnetic i field and reacted much stronger pushing the engines to higher performance than intended? However all technical devices wouldrund faster or perform stronger if they receive higher currents than by default?!

 

Or: Have the diesel engines swallowed some methangas that came up from the ocenas floor gas along with the air, and was this, why the engines ran faster than a than usual or even ran wild? There are lots of volcanic events and earthquakes in that region!

Its the same as with the Malaysian aircraft AH 370 which - as I believe and as would perfectly match to the course of the incident came into a volcanic ashcloud or rather in one of the many pyroclastic clouds mount Sinabung emitted at thar time ( of course a volcanic features never observed before) so what gases do these cloud contain maybe also some carbonhydrates? noone kniosws everone turns a bind eye to that

However : There will be no proof for those theories as long as no measure instrument control these paramemeter like solar induced cuurents or methan emissions from ocean floors and jet none event wants to consider or research that pssibility.

and: no insurance would pay in such a case of " higher natural force

 
                 

(volcano-discovery/ 20140414) Hekla volcano (Iceland): earthquake swarm

A shallow (around 8 km depth) earthquake swarm including two quakes at 2.7 and 2.9 magnitude has started in an area 12 km to the south of Hekla volcano. Latest GPS measurements suggest a slight trend of inflation is occurring as well, which could be related to magma intrusion into shallow magma chambers. We don't know whether these earthquakes are volcanic in origin or could be a precursor to a new eruption in a near future (probably not). On the other hand, since one is being considered "due" by many scientists, it would not be very surprising either. Another earthquake swarm has been occurring off the SW tip of Iceland on the Reykjanes ridge, the submarine continuation of the active western rift zone

(20140414)Ubinas volcano (Peru): activity increases, constant ash emissions and explosions

The volcano's activity increases. As more magma arrives to build up the new lava dome in the summit crater, more gasses are being released as well and cause near-constant explosive activity with moderately strong ash emissions at the moment (see video)

<< NASA NEO-LAND SURFACE TEMPERATURE ANOMALY map

for March 2014 shows , that the temperature anomalies around the Northern pole continued. Global warmists may claim now, this is caused by carbondioxides. But also also NASA remarked in an artuicle last year: This polar heating is tempoeorarely caused by electrons, those accumulate around the Northen pole typically after a solar SEP event ( this are event, when the sun exclusively emmits higher amounts of protons/ hydrogen cores).

These electrons are atrackted by the gravitational pull, the initial proton event/ impact ( typically impacting at the Earth " negative" Southern Pole) adds as an positive charge to the geomagnetic field,. These electrons from the solar interplanetary field are quite" energetic" and transform their energy when atrrackted into the geomagnetic field in form of friction that creates high amounts of heat mainly in the atmosphere around the Northern pole. These electrons also cause strong and sudden thunderstorms and/ tornadoes. They also have ionisation effects, or can induce / accumulate as significant and harmful charges in satellites, but likely also airplanes ships and terrestrial power grids.

/ The weather channel/ 20140331)Yellowstone Earthquake: Volcanic Eruption Not Expected After Strongest Tremor in 34 Years

Yellowstone National Park was shaken by its largest earthquake in 34 years Sunday, but scientists say there is no concern that the quake will lead to an eruption of the Yellowstone Caldera, a supervolcano located in the park.

(MORE: Yellowstone's Magma Chamber Larger Than Once Thought)

/CBS/ 20140330) Earthquake rattles Yellowstone National Park

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. - A 4.8 earthquake shook the northern part of Yellowstone National Park early Sunday. The University of Utah Seismograph Stations reports the earthquake occurred at 6:34 a.m. about 4 miles north-northeast of the Norris Geyser Basin. The university reports it was felt in the Montana border towns of West Yellowstone and Gardiner, both about 20 miles from the epicenter. There were no immediate reports of damage. There are few visitors in the park this time of year. Yellowstone sees frequent small earthquakes. Since Thursday, there have been at least 25 recorded in the nation's first national park. Yellowstone National Park sits on top of a "supervolcano" that last erupted on a massive scale about 640,000 years ago. Scientists have estimated the chance of another super eruption happening at about 0.00014 percent yearly -- i.e. it's almost certainly not going to happen.

Extremely dangerous Category 4 Tropical Cyclone Hellen is bearing down on Madagascar after an extraordinary burst of rapid intensification brought the cyclone from a 60 mph tropical storm to a high-end Category 4 storm with 150 mph winds in just 24 hours. That 90 mph increase in winds in 24 hours is not far below the record intensification rate of Hurricane Wilma in 2005, which was 110 mph in 24 hours. Official bulletins from La Réunion indicate the central pressure dropped 61 mb in 24 hrs, from 986mb at 1800 UTC Saturday to 925mb at 1800 UTC Sunday. They warn in their 18 UTC Sunday advisory:

HELLEN IS LIKELY TO BE ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL TROPICAL CYCLONES EVER SEEN OVER THE NORTHERN CHANNEL SINCE THE SATELLITE ERA (1967). THE LIKELIHOOD IS INCREASING FOR AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS TROPICAL CYCLONE LANDFALL OVER THE NORTHWESTERN COASTLINE OF MADAGASCAR BETWEEN CAPE SAINT-ANDRE AND MAHAJONGA. 
 
         
         

(BBC/ 20140322) Guinea deaths: Ebola blamed for deadly fever outbreak

The Ebola virus has been identified as the cause of an outbreak of haemorrhagic fever now believed to have killed nearly 60 people in southern Guinea, government officials say.Scores of cases have been recorded since the outbreak began early last month.There is no known cure or vaccine for the highly contagious Ebola virus.

It is spread by close personal contact with people who are infected and kills between 25% and 90% of victims.Symptoms include internal and external bleeding, diarrhoea and vomiting.Outbreaks of Ebola occur primarily in remote villages in Central and West Africa, near tropical rainforests, the World Health Organization says.

(BBC/ 20140323) Rare earths: Neither rare, nor earths

You have probably never heard of most of the rare-earth elements yet they have insinuated themselves deep into the fabric of modern life - in ways of which most of us are completely oblivious. There are between 15 and 17 of them (depending how you classify them), including such exotic sounding substances as holmium, praseodymium, cerium, lutetium, ytterbium, gadolinium or - my own personal favourite - promethium. They may be obscure but they have been transforming all sorts of industries. Wind turbine manufacture is a good example

/thewatchers/ 20140321- Very strong and shallow M 6.5 earthquake struck Nicobar Islands, India

Seismotectonics of the Sumatra Region The plate boundary southwest of Sumatra is part of a long tectonic collision zone that extends over 8000 km from Papua in the east to the Himalayan front in the west. The Sumatra-Andaman portion of the collision zone forms a subduction zone megathrust plate boundary, the Sunda-Java trench, which accommodates convergence between the Indo-Australia and Sunda plates. This convergence is responsible for the intense seismicity and volcanism in Sumatra. The Sumatra Fault, a major transform structure that bisects Sumatra, accommodates the northwest-increasing lateral component of relative plate motion.

A volcano has erupted in Guatemala, prompting the authorities to consider the evacuation of some 3,000 people living in the area. The Pacaya volcano began spewing ash and lava after a powerful explosion on Saturday afternoon. New explosions were seen on Sunday, with ash clouds reaching a height or at least 4km (3 miles). Flights have been diverted from the area, some 50km (30 miles) south of the capital, Guatemala City. The Pacaya is one of three active volcanoes in the Central American nation. The other two are the Fuego and the Santa Maria.

Update : The Nicaraguan press is reporting continuous aftershocks in the greater epicenter area Update : It is estimated that tens of millions of people have felt this earthquake at various intensities. A lot of people will have been interrupted from their sleep. The reason that so many people have felt it is the depth of the hypocenter. At earthquake-report.com we know from our experience that earthquakes in between 50 and 80 km depth are being felt as strong up to several hundred kms from the epicenter. This is also the reason that we are receiving “I Have Felt It” reports from all the neighboring countries (luckily without serious damage so far).

Two-thirds of the projected increase in flood damage will be caused by human development, not climate change. The study has been published in the journal Nature Climate Change.

(the watchers/ 20140302) ibonacci alignments of the Azores Pyramid & submerged city of Poseida

THREE MINOR SOLAR SEP EVENTS ON FEB 19 and 20:

followed one another on February 19 and 20. Out of my own observation , most of SEP remain rather invisible on Satellite images. Most experts however suggest, that these SEPs occure along with stronger solar flares.

The related solar event however was an M 2 flare around 7 UTC. As the first protons of that event arrived ( the goes plot has a bad time resolution) about at the same time ( lets say- due to EInsteins laws, at least some minutes later) the Protons speed this time ( while the Proton density this time was rather low and the duration of the entire proton storm rather short ) would have reached again almost the speed of light

TYPICAL AND IMMIDIATELY EXPECTABLE EFFECTS OF SEP EVENTS ARE:

> increase of volcanic hot spot activities , mainly on the main impact longitudes

> Temperature anomalies with temporary rapide meltdown processes around the Southern pole and weather effects around the globe

The integral proton flux ( protons impacting into the geomagnetic filed) increased above 10 pfu on Feb 20. NASA RAP shows a typical intensive impact on the Southern Pole, where the highly accelerated solar protons transform their cinetic energy into friction and heat in the atmosphere as well as on the surface . Solar protons move along the magnetic field lines of the geomagnetic field into the Earth interior, where they mainly are slown down by the Earth`s strong gravity their , transforming their high cinetic energy into heat ( > what leads- in relation to the intensity of the proton storm most immidiataly to hot spot activities sonn after impact begins.)

( SEP Phase II) Finally protons are slown down enough to combine again with electrons to neutrons those further form isotopes.

I thought, I had posted a link to this very interesting essay by the MPI anywhere on my evaluation pages, but couldn`t find it again myself yet.This theory is supported by the fact, that these solar protons have the strongest effects along the related impacts latitudes where values were highest ( measured by GOES). This I evaluated just by comparision of SEPs in the past years and I am continuing to do so. In all cases of SEP impacts I have compared and evaluated yet, the coincidences are 100 % and regularly, thus they are evaluable for further prediction.

TOKYO, Feb. 13 (Xinhua) -- Tokyo Electric Power Co.

TEPCO, while admitting there may be a new leak at the site of a well located just 50 meters from the adjacent Pacific Ocean, confirmed that the levels of cesium found in its groundwater samples were as high as 54,000 becquerels per liter of cesium 137 and 22,000 becquerels per liter of cesium 134. The levels of cesium detected in the latest readings, according to TEPCO, are 600 times higher than the government regulation for contaminated wastewater allowed to be released into the ocean, with the samples testing 30,000 times higher for cesium 137, compared to samples taken just a week earlier. A spokesperson for TEPCO said that radioactive water is probably leaking from underground trenches that link the stricken reactor buildings to the sea. The utility has failed to locate the source of the leak, in another major failing of TEPCO to contain the worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl in 1986.

Winter Heat Swamps Alaska

While much of the continental United States endured several cold snaps in January 2014, record-breaking warmth gripped Alaska. Spring-like conditions set rivers rising and avalanches tumbling. This map depicts land surface temperature anomalies in Alaska for January 23–30, 2014. Based on data from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite, the map shows how 2014 temperatures compared to the 2001–2010 average for the same week. Areas with warmer than average temperatures are shown in red; near-normal temperatures are white; and areas that were cooler than the base period are blue. Gray indicates oceans or areas where clouds blocked the satellite from collecting usable data. A persistent ridge of high pressure off the Pacific Coast fueled the warm spell, shunting warm air and rainstorms to Alaska instead of California, where they normally end up. The last half of January was one of the warmest winter periods in Alaska’s history, with temperatures as much as 40°F (22°C) above normal on some days in the central and western portions of the state, according to Weather Underground’s Christopher Bart

About this dataset:

Land surface temperature is how hot or cold the ground feels to the touch. An anomaly is when something is different from average. These maps show where Earth’s surface was warmer or cooler in the daytime than the average temperatures for the same week or month from 2001-2010. So, a land surface temperature anomaly map for May 2002 shows how that month’s average temperature was different from the average temperature for all Mays between 2001 and 2010

A volcano has erupted in Guatemala, prompting the authorities to consider the evacuation of some 3,000 people living in the area. The Pacaya volcano began spewing ash and lava after a powerful explosion on Saturday afternoon. New explosions were seen on Sunday, with ash clouds reaching a height or at least 4km (3 miles). Flights have been diverted from the area, some 50km (30 miles) south of the capital, Guatemala City. The Pacaya is one of three active volcanoes in the Central American nation. The other two are the Fuego and the Santa Maria.

/sciencedirect/ First documented deep submarine explosive eruptions at the Marsili Seamount (Tyrrhenian Sea, Italy): A case of historical volcanism in the Mediterranean Sea

The Marsili Seamount (MS) is an about 3200 m high volcanic complex measuring 70 × 30 km with the top at ~ 500 m b.s.l. MS is interpreted as the ridge of the 2 Ma old Marsili back-arc basin belonging to the Calabrian Arc–Ionian Sea subduction system (Southern Tyrrhenian Sea, Italy). Previous studies indicate that the MS activity developed between 1 and 0.1 Ma through effusions of lava flows. Here, new stratigraphic, textural, geochemical, and 14C geochronological data from a 95 cm long gravity core (COR02) recovered at 839 m bsl in the MS central sector are presented. COR02 contains mud and two tephras consisting of 98 to 100 area% of volcanic ash. The thickness of the upper tephra (TEPH01) is 15 cm, and that of the lower tephra (TEPH02) is 60 cm. The tephras have poor to moderate sorting, loose to partly welded levels, and erosive contacts, which imply a short distance source of the pyroclastics. 14C dating on fossils above and below TEPH01 gives an age of 3 ka BP. Calculations of the sedimentation rates from the mud sediments above and between the tephras suggest that a formation of TEPH02 at 5 ka BP MS ashes has a high-K calcalkaline affinity with 53 wt.% < SiO2 < 68 wt.%, and their composition overlaps that of the MS lava flows. The trace element pattern is consistent with fractional crystallization from a common, OIB-like basalt. The source area of ashes is the central sector of MS and not a subaerial volcano of the Campanian and/or Aeolian Quaternary volcanic districts. Submarine, explosive eruptions occurred at MS in historical times: this is the first evidence of explosive volcanic activity at a significant (500–800 m bsl) water depth in the Mediterranean Sea. MS is still active, the monitoring and an evaluation of the different types of hazards are highly recommended.

(BBC/ 20140215) Wavier jet stream 'may drive weather shift

New research suggests that the main system that helps determine the weather over Northern Europe and North America may be changing. The study shows that the so-called jet stream has increasingly taken a longer, meandering path. This has resulted in weather remaining the same for more prolonged periods. The work was presented at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in Chicago.The observation could be as a result of the recent warming of the Arctic. Temperatures there have been rising two to three times faster than the rest of the globe.

The jet stream, as its name suggests, is a high-speed air current in the atmosphere that brings with it the weather. It is fuelled partly by the temperature differential between the Arctic and the mid-latitudes. If the differential is large then the jet stream speeds up, and like a river flowing down a steep hill, it ploughs through any obstacles - such as areas of high pressure that might be in its way. If the temperature differential reduces because of a warming Arctic then the jet stream weakens and, again, like a river on a flat bed, it will meander every time it comes across an obstacle....read more...

A shallow magnitude 3.0 earthquake that was centered near Hollywood and shook parts of the Los Angeles basin Saturday morning was the third temblor to hit the area in the last two weeks. The latest quake occurred at 10:13 a.m. at a depth of five miles and was felt from the west side to East L.A., said Anthony Guarino, a seismologist at Caltech. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the epicenter was near the intersection of Melrose and Virgil avenues, on the eastern edge of Hollywood. It was the third magnitude 3.0 or greater quake to hit that area in the last 10 days. “It’s pretty standard for L.A.,” Guarino said. “There are a lot of different faults there.” Clusters of small quakes are common in the Los Angeles basin and generally don’t signify that the “big one” is coming, Guarino said. Every earthquake has a one in five chance of being a foreshock for a larger quake, he added. The odds of that decline quickly as time goes by. The region remains overdue for a massive quake. The southern section of the San Andreas Fault, which starts near the Salton Sea and runs north to Palmdale, has historically caused a large earthquake every 150 years on average. It has not ruptured since 1680.

(volcano_discobvery/ 20140211) Volcanic activity worldwide 11 Feb 2014: Kelud, Mammoth Mountain, Etna, Kilauea

Kelud (East Java): (11 Feb) VSI raised the alert status to the second highest level 3 (out of 4), "Siaga" (meaning eruption warning). In its latest report, VSI informs that an ongoing slight deformation, suggesting magma intrusion, has been detected since September and that a strong increase in seismic activity started on 7 February. 

Mammoth Mountain (California, USA): An small earthquake swarm at shallow depths (around 5 km) occurred east of Mammoth Mountain during the past week. The largest quake was a magnitude 3.0 event on 5 Feb. 
This latest (of many in the past years) seismic swarm is weak in terms of number and energy of earthquakes compared to long-term averages of seismic activity at the Long Valley caldera, an active volcanic system that is capable to erupt (probably not in a near future, though) and is being closely monitored by very experienced staff from USGS.

Etna (Sicily, Italy): A (for Etna standards) very large pyroclastic flow descended this morning on the eastern flank from the area of the new vents that opened yesterday on the eastern side beneath the summit of the New SE crater.

Winter Heat Swamps Alaska

While much of the continental United States endured several cold snaps in January 2014, record-breaking warmth gripped Alaska. Spring-like conditions set rivers rising and avalanches tumbling. This map depicts land surface temperature anomalies in Alaska for January 23–30, 2014. Based on data from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite, the map shows how 2014 temperatures compared to the 2001–2010 average for the same week. Areas with warmer than average temperatures are shown in red; near-normal temperatures are white; and areas that were cooler than the base period are blue. Gray indicates oceans or areas where clouds blocked the satellite from collecting usable data. A persistent ridge of high pressure off the Pacific Coast fueled the warm spell, shunting warm air and rainstorms to Alaska instead of California, where they normally end up. The last half of January was one of the warmest winter periods in Alaska’s history, with temperatures as much as 40°F (22°C) above normal on some days in the central and western portions of the state, according to Weather Underground’s Christopher Bart

About this dataset:

Land surface temperature is how hot or cold the ground feels to the touch. An anomaly is when something is different from average. These maps show where Earth’s surface was warmer or cooler in the daytime than the average temperatures for the same week or month from 2001-2010. So, a land surface temperature anomaly map for May 2002 shows how that month’s average temperature was different from the average temperature for all Mays between 2001 and 2010

changes/ January 25- 2014:

2013, after 2 years after the second major> M 9 Earthquake had taken place within on decade and after two years of statistic evaluation and comparation of solar and terestrial data, it became clear , that socalled SEPS would be the solar feature I was looking , being that solar feature, that indeed can even have strongest related and signiciant geophysical effects.

Now in early 2014, the peak off the sun spots cycle seems to be over and related activity visibly have decreased . I dont expect many stronger and significant solar events for the next half year.

Recently I decided, to close the ongoing solar and terrestrial documentary at this point in this form , as it was made until now., whith complete data and event evaluationas as its required for any scientific work . This I did to get this project to a point, that its results would be available and evaluable for further report and can be also a basic for further scientics research

Nevertheless as observations and evaluations have shown , that esp. the socalled SEPs ,this documentary has focussed on, as being the strongest and most geoeffective known type of solar event) do happen MOST frequently during the solar max, but are als present in the same strength all 11 years in between but just in lower number.

So I will continue to watch over all these solar data and event and try to provide a full report and complete coverage in time if any furthe major event should take place ..

so the solar teerrestrial blog will be continued in another simplified and limited form:

(last update- SEPTEMBER- 21 - 2013:Solar activity was low very since End of August with less sun spots on the visible disc and almost no surface eruption on the entire sun. X ray emission dropped even to A level from September 07- 16. .On Sept 17, solar activity then resumed again first with several filament eruptions, newly emerging sun spot and active regions, producing solar flares.
