    This is a thread I've been meaning to do for a while, a sort of running commentary of the earths movements. And as we've got a couple of volcanos kicking off at the moment,(Iceland, Chile, Ethiopia) I thought now would be a good time to start it.
    Useful links.
    European-Mediteranian Seismology centre
    Live Internet seismic servers
    Seismos/Helis/Tremor plots
    Volcano webcams
    USGS
    USGS Volcanos
    World Wide Volcano Program
    RSOE World Dissaster Map

    I'll try to keep it updated as much as possible, feel free to chip in if you feel so inclined. Other major earth hicups can also be included. Floods and incoming CMEs and stuff. But I'm going to be concentrating mainly on quakes and volcanos.

    Looks like Katla may have started to errupt.

    Maurice Picarda Actually, might as well flounce.

    Where can we post warnings about city-sized asteroids hurtling towards Earth?

    Here if you like :)
    But there already is an Elenin thread ;)

    edit to add- if you scroll to the bottom of the RSOE link in the first post, it has a NEO stats bit for anything in the immediate vicinity. (Elinin isn't due till October/september time though, and it's not expected to be visible to the naked eye unless you're lucky.)

    Or unlucky, depending on your perspective.

    Well, yes. But i reckon it's high time we shoock things up a bit, so I will lol hard if "that" scenario comes true. (I also highly doubt that it will, but there is always hope :D )

    What are the chances of a new hotspot volcano popping up suddenly in the UK? Edinburgh used to have plenty of volcanism not so long ago, and it's a bit of shit hole so would be nice if it was engulfed in magma tomorrow, or maybe somewhere like Leicester.

    Pretty unlikely to be honest, but you never know. Nabro was supposed to be extinct and it's kicked off. (now it has snapped into a very quit bit, just like Krakatoa did before it went BOOM, but I don't want to be allarmist, could be just coincidental behavior)

    Either last week or the week before, a video did surface of a volcano errupting in Lincoln or somewhere, but that was just a fire in a warehouse or somerthing. :D (it's on youtube)

    Oh, and Etna is having a bit of a yawn as of yesterday, but that's been blowing hot and cold for the last 18 months or so.

    Ha, close......but not quite. Just have an interest in what the planet is up to. Volcanos are cool as fuck, I *heart* them quite a lot. Did you know that just the other week, we found 12 volcanos which we didn't know existed, all under the sea, one of them was around 3km high :cool:

    There's bound to be loads more tucked away under the ocean.

    I made a mistake on the last page, the Canary island swarm is on El Hierro not La Palma. La Palma is the one which some think may cause a devestating tsunami. My bad :oops:
