EARTH CHANGES ARCHIVE; Massive Earth Changes Just in the Last couple of Weeks ! Something is up, But What?

  • “Predicted population increases in this century can be expected to translate into more people dying from earthquakes. There will be more individual earthquakes with very large death tolls as well as more people dying during earthquakes than ever before“, according to a new study led by U.S. Geological Survey engineering geologist Thomas L. Holzer. Four catastrophic earthquakes have already struck since the beginning of the 21st century. M 9.1 earthquake that hit Sumatra/Andaman region on December 26, 2004 was the third largest earthquake in the world since 1900 and is the largest since the 1964 Prince William Sound, Alaska earthquake. In total, 227,898 people...

  • An international team of scientists led by University College London provided insight into decline of Arctic sea ice volume and generated estimates of the sea-ice volume for the 2010–11 and 2011–12 winters over the Arctic basin using data from ESA’s CryoSat satellite. According to the study, volume of Arctic sea ice had reduced by 36% during autumn and 9% during winter between 2003 and 2012. For the first time, it has been validated that volume of sea ice and its extent in polar region has declined substantially in tandem. Notably, there has been a constant downward trend in Arctic sea ice...

  • The number of small tremors and emissions of ash at Paluweh (also known as Rokatenda) volcano increased in October 2012, and continued into February 2013, probably indicating growth of the lava dome. After months of rumbling, an explosive eruption occurred on February 2 and 3, 2013. Satellite images show the path of a volcanic landslide, likely the remnants of a pyroclastic flow. A brand-new delta extends into the Flores Sea at the foot of the flow. Gray ash from the eruption covers the southern slopes of the peak. According to the Darwin Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC), Paluweh has experience minor ash and gas emissions almost daily since the...

  • The National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) launched a new website called Greenland Ice Sheet Today which provides daily satellite data about the condition of the Greenland ice sheet. The website also provides analysis, when possible, and will serve not only scientists but interested members of the general public.   Greenland’s surface melting in 2012 was intense, far in excess of any earlier year in the satellite record since 1979. In July 2012, a very unusual weather event occurred. For a few days, 97% of the entire ice sheet indicated surface melting. This event prompted NSIDC to build this Web site,...

  • The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers measured record low water levels in two of the North America’s Great Lakes, Michigan and Huron. The water levels at Lake Michigan and Lake Huron reached the lowest level from 1918, since modern record-keeping began. Water levels at Lake Michigan and Lake Huron broken records the past two months, and the levels have been very near record lows for the last several months. Lake Michigan-Huron’s water levels have also been below average for the past 14 years, which is the longest period of sustained below-average levels since 1918.

  • In  this case a mass movement of ice, not rock and soil, on the Ilulissat Glacier in Western Greenland, a part of the film Chasing Ice. It is genuinely astonishing – the volume of the collapse is apparently 7.4 cubic kilometres. On May 28, 2008, Adam LeWinter and Director Jeff Orlowski filmed a historic breakup at the Ilulissat Glacier in Western Greenland. The calving event lasted for 75 minutes and the glacier retreated a full mile across a calving face three miles wide. The height of the ice is about 3,000 feet, 300-400 feet above water and the rest below water....

  • Recent destructive M 8.0 earthquake that struck Solomon Islands on February 6, 2013, as well as ongoing seismic swarm in the area, is fair reminder that we live in a planet that is undergoing constant change. According to seismologist’s theories of earthquake cycles. the devastating earthquakes that rocked Tohoku, Japan in 2011, Sumatra in 2004 and Chile in 1960 — all of magnitude 9.0 or greater — should not have happened. And that might mean earthquake prediction needs an overhaul, some researchers say.

The dome is about 100 m in diameter and presumably formed starting January 24, 2013 when elevated surface temperatures were observed in satellite images. The development of a lava dome in the summit crater indicates that sudden explosions of blocks and ash are possible with little or no warning. Ash clouds, if produced, could exceed 20,000 feet...
