Magma Plume: Renewed activity at Canary Islands, El Hierro volcano

January 6, 2012CANARY ISLANDSLooks like 2012 is trying to start out busy – we got an impressive eruption of Etna the other day and now it seems that El Hierro is showing renewed vigor. (Below) New video from INVOLCAN and images from the webcams show that the sea surface is steaming and reports from people at El Hierro say that new pyroclastic chunks (the “coconuts”) have been spotted as well. Diario El Hierro is reporting an increase in seismic tremor at the volcano over the last 24 hours. Not much is showing on the El Hierro webcams, but it’s never a bad idea to keep an eye on them. You never know if the activity might continue long enough to produce a subaerial eruption (such as the activity at Jebel Zubair in the Red Sea), but right now, we’re still likely a long way from that. –Wired

    Glad to have you back Alvin, Being an avid follower of the site, I was wondering where the rest of the EP community was since the dearth of comments the past few days. I seems everyone was sitting back in resignation to the dawning of 2012. Well seeing all the activity around the globe it looks more and more like stuff is starting to happen. Please keep up the great work Alvin, and please to the rest of the EP community your posts are read and appreciated.
    God Bless all,

    I personally drew a correlation between solar activity and posts on this site/relevant mainstream news. As the solar activity decreased, so did ‘activity’ here on Earth. Maybe just my imagination, but I see what I see.

    I’m also glad to see you back. At first I was thinking that we were having a slow-news day, but I see a lot of volcano and earthquake now. Wow!! And although I’m not commenting as much due to time constraints, I definitely read and share your blog every day. Thank you so much for keeping us all informed.
