Volcano Lightning (15 pics) Pics | 11 Nov, 2011 | Views: 7546 | Volcano lightning is a very rare and mysterious phenomenon. It's still unclear what creates a volcano lightning but it looks very beautiful. Do you like it? It is just one of the thousands of posts that we have on the Acidcow.com. How many active volcanoes are there in the world? The answer to this common question depends upon use of the word "active." At least 20 volcanoes will probably be erupting as you read these words (Italy's Stromboli, for example, has been erupting for more than a thousand years); roughly 60 erupted each year through the 1990s; 154 in the full decade 1990-1999; about 550 have had historically documented eruptions; about 1300 (and perhaps more than 1500) have erupted in the Holocene (past 10,000 years); and some estimates of young seafloor volcanoes exceed a million. Because dormant intervals between major eruptions at a single volcano may last hundreds to thousands of years, dwarfing the relatively short historical record in many regions, it is misleading to restrict usage of "active volcano" to recorded human memories: we prefer to add another identifying word (e.g. "historically active" or "Holocene volcano"). The definition of "volcano" is as important in answering the number question as the definition of "active." Erupting now:
Empress Royal Paulownia Tree Step 1: Dig the hole Pick the perfect spot with full or partial sunlight and with moist or well drained soil. Dig the hole so it is shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width. Loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through. What is a Salt Glacier? A moving river of crystalline salt. What Are Salt Glaciers? In the Zagros Mountains of Iran, salt domes break through the surface to produce flowing glaciers of salt. The arid climate does not produce enough rain to dissolve the salt and carry it away.
Mount St. Helens VolcanoCams - Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument Welcome! Welcome to the home of the Mount St. Helens VolcanoCams. We have been providing near real-time images of Mount St. Helens since the late 1990s. Violent eruption and series of major pyroclastic f Another violent eruption occurred at Santiaguito lava-dome complex of Santa Maria volcano in Guatemala on the morning of September 21, 2013. At about 02:30 UTC (08:30 local time), the Caliente dome suddenly produced a series of major pyroclastic flows triggered by collapse of accumulated viscous lava at the southeastern rim and flank of the dome. The flows descended on all sides of the lava dome.
Volcanology A volcanologist sampling lava using a rock hammer and a bucket of water Modern volcanology In 1841, the first volcanological observatory, the Vesuvius Observatory, was founded in the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies. Seismic observations are made using seismographs deployed near volcanic areas, watching out for increased seismicity during volcanic events, in particular looking for long period harmonic tremors, which signal magma movement through volcanic conduits.
Sledding Crows and How Anthropomorphism Helps (and Hurts) the Environmental Movement (Video) Yahoo/Screen capture A video of a crow (embedded below) that appears to love spending his free time sledding down a roof on a jar lid has garnered over two million clicks. That is two million people enjoying humankind's ability to look at an animal and think we know how it is feeling. We love sledding. Birds love sledding. You Can Look It Up - Geologic Words When you get into geology, as opposed to rockhounding, the first thing you need is a dictionary. There are so many different things to keep track of—landforms, minerals, fossils and the parts of fossils—and so many of the words aren't English. Great language though it is, English just isn't up to the task. First, Go Native

The eruption can be seen clearly from the capital, Nuku'alofa, although residents only reported seeing smoke rising from the sea on Wednesday, two days after it is believed to have begun But authorities said today that the eruption does not pose any danger to islanders at this stage, and there have been no reports of fish or other animals being affected.No warnings have been issued to the coastal villages close to the volcano, which is one of 36 undersea volcanoes clustered in that area. The situation is being helped by trade winds which continue to blow gas and steam away from the island.
