Scientists discover new large underwater volcano chain near Antarctica

July 11, 2011ANTARCTICA – Scientists from British Antarctic Survey (BAS) have discovered previously unknown volcanoes in the ocean waters around the remote South Sandwich Islands. Using ship-borne sea-floor mapping technology during research cruises onboard the RRS James Clark Ross, the scientists found 12 volcanoes beneath the sea surface — some up to 3km high. They found 5km diameter craters left by collapsing volcanoes and 7 active volcanoes visible above the sea as a chain of islands. The research is important also for understanding what happens when volcanoes erupt or collapse underwater and their potential for creating serious hazards such as tsunamis. Also this sub-sea landscape, with its waters warmed by volcanic activity creates a rich habitat for many species of wildlife and adds valuable new insight about life on Earth. Speaking at the International Symposium on Antarctic Earth Sciences in Edinburgh Dr Phil Leat from British Antarctic Survey said, “There is so much that we don’t understand about volcanic activity beneath the sea — it’s likely that volcanoes are erupting or collapsing all the time. The technologies that scientists can now use from ships not only give us an opportunity to piece together the story of the evolution of our earth, but they also help shed new light on the development of natural events that pose hazards for people living in more populated regions on the planet.” –Science Daily
Note: I’ve identified submarine volcanic activity as the culprit for the unexplained dramatic increases in Antarctica Ice Shelf sublimation for years and now once again, science is catching up with the hypothesis I outline in my book. Volcanoes are breaking out all under the ocean. There may be as many as 3 to 4 million such vents under the oceans- not including asphalt volcano clusters which spew a mixture of asphalt, toxins and CH4 gas.   –The Extinction Protocol

    Alvin,

    Is a cosmic event such as Elenin or other such incoming celestial body causing the increased geothermal activity, as it approaches closer?

    Also, could I purchase a signed copy of your book? God has truly gifted you in translating these end times events!

    Thanks for all your hard work!

    • See your email. I thank God for the gift and I thank you for your patronage and readership. We are fortunate to have you. I want to do a post on the comet because I get so many questions asked about it. Look for something on it soon.

      God bless,
      Alvin

    You are AMAZING Alvin ☺ So Thankful for your book, your commitment, your dedication, & YOU! You always keep things simple, enabling those of us who are not scientifically minded or knowledgeable in such things, to keep up & be informed. A big ‘Thank you’ to all those other fine folk who also post on EP, helping to keep us informed.
    Bless you all.

    I wonder what effect increased output from submarine volcanoes and vents will have on the already rapid lowering of oceanic ph levels… I guess there is also possibly a link to anoxic conditions, which seems to have been a major factor in previous marine biota mass extinctions, and maybe the unusual migrations we have been seeing lately…

    Discover? I think they’re known for sometime now. Please do not always believe when scientists say they’ve just discovered something or for that matter do not always believe them when they say they are baffled by something, (some virus or bacteria) usually they are not but they want you to be.

    Remember God’s nemeses and his worshipers are at work and will use any means necessary to bring you running into his arms.

    Bottom line and what I’m trying to say is that scientist and government leader do not always tell you the truth.

      The Government Leaders and Corporations has always controlled the news and the media. The last thing they want is global panic, so like a mouse in a maze (we the people) , they (governments and leaders and Corporations) will set a destination for us, to confuse the general public but showing us little hope of getting out (Thus we must depend on them) of the maze. The folks that find they way out and to let everyone else know will scare the new government and corporations.

    I think they just try to inform us little by little about what’s going on. And when it will collapse, they’ll tell us ”Huh, we warned you a long time ago!!!” NASA about solar storms, FEMA about being prepare if something happen, British Government about drought and catastrophies in the next 10 years, Russian scientist about comet and near earth objects… Put the pieces together and you’ll find that they try to warn us but, in a very subtile way…

    Power-wary governments and highly-paid scientists only tell bad things are happening when everything’s out of control. They are always like that. We’ll only be left with a few minutes before they admit that something REALLY REALLY terrible has been showing up.

    Alvin ~ 11/10 @ a Gold Star…
    We love it when you are right and confirm our reality…
    As I said in a previous post :- ” In The End Of Times All Will Be Made Known”…

    Please if you could ~ Share with us your knowledge on the Astroids from heaven and Elenin
    situation as we believe that is rather critical to our situation and the unknown factor ?
    I have seen NASA’s confirmation of Elenin except no one knows where it is exactly and
    how big or what it looks like while othere’s are saying it will arrive in October November 2011 ?

    Myself : I believe we are in for something big , Earth change wise on 21st 12,2012…
    I spend A lot of time at NASA, Hubble, Sterio & Space weather.com

      We are free thinking individuals at least those of us who are regular visitors to Extinction Protocol, are free thinkers. Yes, as unfortunate as it is we must keep doing many of the things we’re doing, like going to work and yes paying those taxes. We must not draw unwanted attention to ourselves less our plans, whether they be group or individual plans to be thwarted.

      You/we must go about your daily business. God is with us. In the best possible way share the information that you/we are privy too without embellishment/sensationalizing or causing drama. There are many ways to share information from this site without even taking to a soul – just give them site link. I have many time over shared this link site with friends a colleagues – some clam up or say they don’t want to think about it. I don’t push it – I move on at least I tried – they have been warned. However, I do spend a bit more time with a few and they are the ones who have small children in their family. I simply give them the link a few more time when I think they should see it.

      If after a while I see that they really don’t want to face facts I simply try my luck some place else. Like Alvin the creator of this site – he is not pushing information on us, he’s simply sharing information – it’s up to us to learn, share with others and prepare.

      Those of us who visit this site on a daily basis walk a fine line when we attempt to share/warn others that there’s some pretty nasty stuff ahead of us – we’re called fear mongers. We tread cautiously so that we will be taken seriously – it’s frustrating – because we just want to shout the message out loud and clear for everyone to hear. Can’t do that no one would listen for sure. Remember Jesus on his ‘walk about’ did not shout – he talked.

      I can read from your post that you are very frustrated – don’t be. It is – just do the best you can and God will be very pleased.

      Best,

        i agree , i have been wide eyed and awake for 22 years now , and yes , i know how Noah must have felt in the last years before his visions became manifest .

        ” if the truth can be spoken so as to be understood, it will be believed”

        sharing information is a constantly self refining process to that end

        this site is an oasis where likeminded people from around the world can share in the waters of truth that spring forth from these pages of insight
        bless you for your understanding 🙂

        I agree with you completely and and also with skywalker. I have had dreams about terrible disasters and end time type scenes and had them only last year and I do believe God gave them to me so I can pray for people. I try to share news I find on this site God Bless you Alvin and I always get stares or the words stop being so doom and gloom, there is good in the world stop focusing on the bad(I tell them I am aware of the good but I want you to be aware of all that is happening) I get rolling of eyes, fear monger, Jesus freak though I only say I Love Christ and they come At me with daggers in their eyes at my mere mention of His name. I want to keep sharing but I either get annoyed or the departed phases Damn you so doom and gloom and they walk away. And all I say is practically this did you hear about that earthquake? And they always without fail become a bit hostile towards me. Anyways I think I wrote too much. Just want to say I appreciate all those who comment on this site and also give extra info.

        Blessings in Christ
