New explosive eruptions reported at Japan’s Suwanose-jima volcano

November 27, 2013 JAPANExplosive activity has resumed at the remote volcano in the Tokara Island chain. VAAC Tokyo reported explosions yesterday and this morning, with ash plumes rising to 4,000-6,000 ft (1.2-1.8 km) altitude. The last major eruption occurred in July of this year. –Volcano Discovery
Japan’s volcanic island growing: The youngest island of the world continues to grow as the eruption continues. Recent footage shows (from 24 Nov) shows strombolian activity and a lava flow on the southeast flank of the small new cone. The strombolian activity often ejects glowing bombs that land in the sea water and create spray and leave short-lived areas of boiling water around them. The longer the eruption continues in this so-called magmatic style (the vent being isolated from sea water, allowing the formation of welded scoria and lava flows), the greater the chances are that the island will survive wave erosion once the eruption stops. –Volcano Discovery

    I just want to wish you Alvin, and all my U.S. friends a Happy Thanksgiving. Despite all the earth changes going on and the turmoil in the world, don’t despair for what you we don’t have but remember to give thanks for the blessings we do have. And to my Jewish friends, I wish you a Happy Hanukkah. G_d still performs miracles.
