Live Panorama of Thanksgiving Eve Breakout from Pu?u ????, K?lauea Volcano
Last Updated 2009-12-11 03:37:25 (HST) http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/hvo/cams/TEcam/

Disclaimer This panorama is a composite of six images from a research camera positioned on the east rim of Pu?u ????'s crater. The images update every 15 minutes. At times, clouds and volcanic fume obscure visibility. The camera is subject to sporadic breakdown, and its remote location makes immediate repair impossible. Cameras can be where people should not.

       Volcanic ash disrupts Puerto Rico flights
December 29, 2009 11:02 p.m. EST
Puerto Rico
(CNN) -- Volcanic ash led officials Tuesday to cancel dozens of commercial flights into and out of Puerto Rico.

Ports Authority Director of Aviation Arnaldo Deleo cited ash from the Soufriere volcano hovering some 10,000 feet
over the Island of Montserrat as the reason for the cancellation of more than 60 flights.

Jet Blue, Delta, AirTran, Continental, US Airways, United, Spirit, American Eagle and Copa were among the airlines
operating out of Luis Munoz Marin International Airport in Isla Verde and airports in Aguadilla and Ponce that were affected.

Ash emissions from the volcano have been ongoing for several weeks, according to weather and volcano monitors.

This from Zetatalk newsletter yesterday (14 Feb '10):
(Sorry I can't put the chart here; the system that I am on won't let me paste it in.  Can someone else copy it over?)

A really impressive chart was recently posted by George Ure on his Urban Survival site. Using data on the date of most recent eruption, George shows us, visually, just how many of the 183 active volcanoes are active right now.

SOURCE: http://urbansurvival.com/week.htm

    A good starting point might be a click on the data posted by the Smithsonian Institution which lists recent volcano eruptions by year. Boring? Hell no - especially when you plug it into a spreadsheet and turn it into a chart.

Active volcanoes seem to all be going off at the present time. Mount Etna, in Italy, has been erupting almost continuously since 2001, after last erupting in 1994. Cleveland, in the Aleutian Islands, has been erupting almost continuously since 1997, though historically only erupted once every dozen years or so. Piton de la Fournaise, on Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean, has been erupting since 1998 though historically has gaps of 10-20 years between eruptions. Baren Island, on the Andaman Islands of India, erupted in 2000, 2005, and 2008 though historically was quiescent for longer times between eruptions, for instance between 1852 and 1991. Llaima in central Chili has been erupting since 1997, though historically had gaps of 5 years on average between eruptions, which were brief.

Hello again, Jim
this is valuable data to try and nail down once and for all. The increased rate of volcanic eruptions would give us a clue about the coming years.

CNN - Iceland volcano

http://edition.cnn.com/2010/WORLD/europe/03/21/iceland.volcano/

(CNN) -- Hundreds of people were evacuated Sunday amid flood concerns after a long-dormant volcano erupted beneath a glacier in south Iceland.

It was the first time since 1821 that the volcano under the Eyjafjallajokull glacier has erupted.

More than 600 people were evacuated as scientists monitored a fissure in the volcano from which lava was erupting. The fissure measured about 1,640 to 3,281 feet (500 to 1,000 meters).

Despite the remote location of the eruption, if the fissure "develops further towards the glacier, the melting floodwater ... will create dangerous floods in a populated area in south Iceland," said Gudrun Johannesdottir, a project manager for Iceland's Joint Rescue and Coordination Center.

The country's civil protection agency did not immediately record any injuries or damage.

Eyjafjallajokull is about 100 miles (160 kilometers) east of the capital, Reykjavik.
