I remember reading something about Katla doing its thing a few weeks after the one I can not pronounce, in the past. Guess we will see what comes next.

I remember hearing something on a Saturday am radio show just a few weeks ago...about a conflagration of events that forcast an ice age. I blew it off...but I think Katla was part of the equation ! I think the orator equated Katla activity with cooling trends. And that Katla in conjunction with other such events led to ..... ugh.

Should have taken better notes.

Is there anything particularly unusual with this type of behavior under Katla?

More info on Katla here.
http://www.csmonitor.com/Science/2010/0418/Iceland-s-Eyjafjallajoekull-volcano-is-nothing-to-Angry-Sister-Katla

When, not if, Katla goes off Europe is going to feel it much worse than what they received from E-15 since Katla is a much larger volcano.

Probably represents magma movement, probably some of the precursors that scientists have been monitoring

Found this on a google search. Excerpts follow.

Triple Crown of global cooling could pose serious threat to humanity

Sea surface temperatures, extremely low solar activity and increased volcanic activity would lead to widespread food shortages and famine.

According to Bastardi, “The Katla volcano in Iceland is a game changer. If it erupts and sends plumes of ash and SO2 into the stratosphere, any cooling caused by the oceanic cycles would be strengthened and amplified.”

Thank you, Godzilla; you sound pretty sober in your assessment; do you personally agree that it is VERY possible that Katla will have a serious eruption in the imminent future?

You mentioned in the past that Icelandic geologists are intensely monitoring Katla -- but besides Iceland, are other governments deeply concerned?

It just seems that were Katla to seriously blow its top, that results would be utterly catastrophic -- worldwide.

Right??? Or is that sensationalistic??

I don't have access to the data and information that the volcanologists in Iceland (as well as others who are supporting them) have, so I can only lean towards their current assessment, and that is an eruption has a high probability of happening - just when and how big is what they are trying to determine.

You mentioned in the past that Icelandic geologists are intensely monitoring Katla -- but besides Iceland, are other governments deeply concerned?

I'm sure the governments of Europe are concerned given the mess created by E15 a month or so ago. Our USGS is probably helping as well

It just seems that were Katla to seriously blow its top, that results would be utterly catastrophic -- worldwide.

I haven't researched the extent and size of Katla, however, I don't think it would be 'catastrophic' in that use of the word. Katla (as well as the other volcanos of Iceland) are above ocean examples of the mid-atlantic rift - a tectonic spreading center where primarily basaltic lavas are produced. These types of lava are generally very fluid in comparison to other types and do not result in huge pressures building up and releasing catastrophically. 'Catastrophic' eruptions are more associated with andesitic or rhyolitic volcanos with lava more pasty. Yellowstone, Mt. St. Helens and Pinatubo are examples of this.

So, if I've read the background on Katla correctly, it has produced very vigorous tephra eruptions as well as some more dacitic explosive ones. It has also produced some of the largest basalt lava flows of recent history. So I would expect to see a relatively high ash column - though larger than E15, huge glacier melt offs and large lava flows. The ash will cause even worse problems for Europe X10, but I would not equate it to the proven world wide impact created when Pinatubo erupted.

I just try to present a valid interpretation of geologic events - as there are too many arm-chair 'geologists' at times here on FR presenting bogus and tin-foil covered 'interpretations' like every time there is a small quake in Yellowstone some raise their voices that she's gonna blow. Glad to be of service in answering your questions.

I was the one that posted Yellowstone a few months ago. It would be nuts not to keep a closer eye on that swarm when I posted it. In other words what I posted I was correct.


You do know that swarm is still going? And it has been even more active in the last week.
http://www.quake.utah.edu/helicorder/ymr_webi_1d.htm

I would be surprised if we don't see something that comes from this event in Yellowstone. At the very least I fully expect at least a gas release in Yellowstone sometime during this swarm.

I've monitored activity the park for over 30 years. Earthquake activity in Yellowstone continues at background levels. Swarm are common. Wow, arm chair seismology at its best, but hey, guess what, nothing more came from it.

ou do know that swarm is still going? And it has been even more active in the last week.

Can you trangulate and locate all those quakes that the helicorders are recording - nope, didn't think so. Those recorders register quakes around the world, not just specifically Yellowstone. Here's the activity over the past week

Oh my where is all this "activity" over the past week? Not in Yellowstone, that is for sure.

I would be surprised if we don't see something that comes from this event in Yellowstone. At the very least I fully expect at least a gas release in Yellowstone sometime during this swarm.

Leave the science to real scientists, since your earlier predictions of an impending eruption were so far wrong. I'll wait with baited breath for your 'gas release' event (chortle)

Quix,

Katla, ice-fields are prone to summer season shifts which are strong enough to produce minor quaking action. I don't believe we are seeing anything out of the normal here.

Godzilla,

I have to step in here. Steve, had every right to chime up about something he is passionate about and certainly a hot-spot called Yellowstone, should be kept at least on the back burner. Yellowstone will one day blow...I hope there are more eyes upon it than just Steve's cause in this climate of science, I will trust casual observation sooner than schooled.

As for Katla, the nondescript quakes you accused Stevie of reading to much into for yellowstone, well you just mirrored him with Katla’s quake action.

Point being, a scientific mind does not require a degree, it just has to be “biased” free.

More like stepped IN it here winnie.

Sorry, casual observation resulted in an abundance of tinfoil being wasted. It is one thing to see wiggles on a seismograph - it is something entirely else to correctly interpret those wiggles - and individuals who are untrained in the science doing the chicken little just because they see wiggles then posting as informed 'fact' is stupidity. Case in point on was the statement on just how "active" the park had been over the past week - except there wasn't much happening at all. And because of all that (non)activity we are all to stop our lives and expect at least an 'off gassing event'. Give me a break. Are you able to interpret those wiggles winnie? Well the people who can and have the proper equipment and software can and do that every day. I've worked with some USGS seismologists on an active fault that has been recently discovered at one of my project sites - they are very sharp. I give the learned a great deal more credibility than someone who can't interpret a seismograph.

As for Katla, the nondescript quakes you accused Stevie of reading to much into for yellowstone, well you just mirrored him with Katla’s quake action.

No, lets get this very clear as there are significant differences. First, Katla is a historically active volcano that has pre-existing data for many of those eruptions - none exist for Yellowstone except for the deposits. Second, you need were to go BEYOND the quakes and look at inflation of the volcano and monitoring of the movement of magma beneath the volcano (something that was not the case with Yellowstone), there is cause for concern of an eruption, particularly because of the historic association with E15. Katla erupts once about every 60 years and has not done so since 1918. Third, I was careful to refer to the actual scientists monitoring the volcano rather than try to blow smoke on details that I admittedly did not know. In the future, try not to misquote me.

Point being, a scientific mind does not require a degree, it just has to be “biased” free

Bias free - LOL that is rich and apparently you are unaware of actual working of science. One can be as bias free as you can imagine - but if they know nothing of the principles involved, ignorant in interpreting the data, and wrapped with tinfoil in thinking that they 'know' more about the situation even though they cannot understand or interpret the data in-front of them - that makes them some how better than those of us who have studied the principles involved and do this for a living. Sorry winnie - that becomes a very dangerous bias - a bias of ignorance for the ignorant.

LOl...okay bud....obviously....your Wheaties's must be soggy....lol

I know Katla i guess better than you, for none of it's monitoring stations are showing anything happening under it's glacier that is not within backround. Katla’s involvement with Eyejaf, is tentative at best, so the jury is still out if one influences the other.

Thirdly, I could give a crap if you have any experience what-so-ever, clearly your opinion is not correct on Katla so in my estimation you are no more sound a thought than Steve and quite possibly because of your presentation less.

Good Day, Sir.
