Seven Volcanoes In Six Different Countries All Start Erupting Within Hours Of Each Other. Seven Volcanoes In Six Different Countries All Start Erupting Within Hours Of Each OtherA new island has appeared in the Pacific. A submarine eruption just off Nishino-Shima Island Japan has erupted for the first time in 40 years. The Japanese Navy noticed the explosions as boiling lava met sea water giving rise to plumes of steam and ash. Almost 7,000 miles away in Mexico, the Colima volcano blew its top after a period of relative calm. A steam and ash cloud rose two miles into the sky and the grumbling of the mountain could be heard in towns a few miles away. In Guatemala the ‘Fire Mountain’ belched out lava and sent up a moderate ash cloud causing an ash fall over nearby towns.

In Vanuatu the Yasur volcano is giving some cause for concern. Over to Italy, Mount Etna is putting on quite a display. The Etna eruption (Nov 17th) In Indonesia a four mile high ash cloud is making life hard for residents. Mount Sinabung ash cloud So, we have eruptions big enough to prompt evacuations. Colima.

IQUIQUE, Chile (AP) — Coastal residents of Chile's far north spent a second sleepless night outside their homes as major aftershocks continued Thursday following a magnitude-8.2 earthquake that damaged several thousand homes and caused six deaths.

No new major damage or casualties were reported, and a heavy police and military presence kept order. Raw: Big Aftershock Hits Chile Photos: Chile earthquake triggers tsunami alerts The infrastructure in the area is nearly entirely intact, but with aftershocks continuing, life has been anything but normal. After a magnitude-7.6 aftershock struck just before midnight Wednesday, Chile's Emergency Office and navy issued a tsunami alert, and for two hours ordered everyone living in low-lying areas along the country's entire 2,500-mile (4,000-kilometer) Pacific coastline to evacuate.

Among those moved inland was President Michelle Bachelet, who was in the city of Arica assessing damage in the north from Tuesday night's powerful quake. Monitoring the world. Global Maps. H.A.A.R.P.

Learning Objectives Upon completion of this module, you should be able to: List several environmental hazards and phenomena where GOES–R satellite observations are expected to benefit users. Describe some of the key anticipated benefits as they relate to GOES–R monitoring of those same environmental hazards and phenomena. Describe the main GOES–R mission objectives. State the fundamental difference between geostationary and polar–orbiting satellites and briefly describe the advantages of each. Top Introduction The Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite series (GOES) is essential to continuous observation of Earth's environment and plays a key role for weather monitoring, warning, and forecast operations in the United States and Western Hemisphere.

The GOES–R mission is expected to improve the quality and timeliness of information, enhancing public safety, protecting lives, property and the environment, improving economic security, and promoting science education and research.

Gheorghe Marmureanu: “Something is wrong! There are too many strong earthquakes” The Earth is shaking! Scientists find no explanation to the 39 earthquakes that rocked the planet in just two days. “Something is wrong! There are too many strong earthquakes” believes Romania’s top seismologist, Gheorghe Marmureanu, who finds the latest Indonesian quake very unusual.The series of tremors debuted with the two big quakes (8.6 and 8.2 on the Richter scale) that rocked Indonesia these days.

Just hours later, three more earthquakes panicked Mexico (7, 6.9 and 6.2 on the Richter scale). “A surprise that cannot be explained by science”According to Marmureanu, there is no relation between the quakes that shook the planet during the last two days, but what happened in Indonesia came as a surprise that cannot be explained by science.

Gheorghe Mărmureanu: «Ceva nu e în regulă! Pământul se zguduie rău!

Wind patterns are "disrupted" by mountains, which does not lend itself to the circumstances that lead to a tornado.

Or it could also be the way the jet streams "flow" along the mountains, as opposed to into them. Terrain, climate, and a lack of Gulf moisture. You'll notice a similar but far less-defined dead spot along the most rugged of the Appalachians. The mountains just don't have enough warm moist air to create the conditions necessary for formation of tornadoes. You only get tornadoes forming in the most severe storm cells, where there is an excess of moist warm air forced into an updraft into cooler atmospheric air (causing instability); In the mountains you'll get Orographic thunderstorms caused by cool air that is forced up the mountain side by convection.

Tornadoes typically only occur in air mass thunderstorm or frontal thunder storms. [] Ocean_currents_1943.jpg (JPEG Image, 2639 × 1406 pixels) - Scaled (43.

Global Carbon Footprint. Air pollution monitoring stations face closure as government looks to cut costs | Environment.

Up to 600 stations for monitoring air pollution across England could be shut down under new government plans to save money by cutting regulations. Ministers want to remove obligations on local authorities to assess air quality in their areas, resulting in less monitoring. But environmental campaigners are accusing them of trying to hide one of the country's biggest public health problems. Government advisers have estimated that one type of pollutant – miniscule particles from diesel engines, fossil fuel power stations and other sources – is killing 29,000 people a year in the UK, and costing health services about £16bn.

But European air pollution limits meant to protect health are being breached in urban areas across the country, with the highest levels in London. But now Defra has launched a six-week consultation, due to close on 30 August, proposing a radical overhaul of the local air quality management regime that has been in place since 1997. Chemical Weapons Stockpile and Destruction Sites Map and Photos. The following map and photos depict the locations of what remains of the U.S. chemical weapons stockpile and the facilities being constructed to complete the destruction of remaining chemical agents. According to a press release from the Department of Defense’s Assembled Chemical Weapons Alternatives program office, the U.S. had destroyed “nearly 90 percent of the chemical weapons stockpile” in advance of the extended Chemical Weapons Convention deadline of April 29, 2012.

Though chemical weapons were originally stored at eight continental U.S. Army military installations, only two facilities remain active. One site is located at the Blue Grass Army Depot in Richmond, Kentucky and the other is at the Pueblo Chemical Depot just north of Avondale, Colorado. The current stockpile includes projectiles, cartridges, and rockets.

International Ground to Air Signal Codes. International Ground-to-Air Signal Codes You can lay out these symbols using strips of fabric, pieces of wood, stone, or any other available material. Try to make as big a color contrast as possible between your symbol(s) and the surrounding terrain. Symbols should be at least 8 feet in height or longer. Take care when constructing these symbols so that they can't be confused. In addition, you should use any means possible to try and attract an aircraft's attention: radio, flames, smoke, flares etc. Aircraft Acknowledgements Message Understood: An aircraft will indicate that ground signals have been understood by rocking from side to side or by making green flashes with a signal lamp. Message Not Understood: An aircraft will indicate that ground signals are not understood by making a complete right-hand circuit or by making red flashes with a signal lamp.

Share your images with CNN iReport. Moscow (CNN) -- A meteor streaked through the skies above Russia's Urals region Friday morning before exploding with a flash and boom that shattered glass in buildings and left about 1,000 people hurt, authorities said. Described by NASA as a "tiny asteroid," the meteor's explosion created a blast in central Russia equivalent to 300,000 tons of TNT, the space agency's officials said Friday, adding that the incident was a once-in-100-years event.

The injured included more than 200 children. A large chunk of a meteor that exploded over Russia is found in a lake on Friday, February 15.
