Mount Saint Helens and Mount Tambora:  what happened after eruptions ?


Learning the lessons of Mount St Helens

By Tas Walker

It was not until I visited Mount St Helens volcano in Washington State, USA, that I fully appreciated the immensity of its 1980 explosion. Over many years, I had learned a lot about the eruption, watching videos, listening to lectures, and reading reports. When the mountain blew up physically, it also blew away many false ideas about geology, ideas that were wrong, but had been believed for more than a century.  Read more...  »

The Mount Pinatubo Eruption in the Philippines

By Matt Rosenberg

In June 1991, the second-largest volcanic eruption of the twentieth century* took place on the island of Luzon in the Philippines, a mere 90 kilometers (55 miles) northwest of the capital city Manila. Up to 800 people were killed and 100,000 became homeless following the Mount Pinatubo eruption, which climaxed with nine hours of the eruption on June 15, 1991.  Read more...», Mount Pinatubo  Read more...»

Mount Tambora volcano, Indonesia

Mount Tambora, also called Mount Tamboro, Indonesian Gunung Tambora, volcanic mountain on the northern coast of Sumbawa island, Indonesia, that in April 1815 exploded in the largest volcanic eruption in recorded history. It is now 2,851 metres (9,354 feet) high, having lost much of its top in the 1815 eruption. The volcano remains active; smaller eruptions took place in 1880 and 1967, and episodes of increased seismic activity occurred in 2011, 2012, and 2013.   Read more...»

How not to date a Volcano

By David F. Coppedge

Two teams of geologists looked at the same volcano field in Nevada. One (1994) decided that the cones and lava flows formed during multiple episodes over tens or even hundreds of thousands of years.
Another (2006) looked at the same evidence and decided everything probably happened within months. Who’s right?   Read more...»

 NASA extreme low sunspot counts indicate global cooling onset

       American Thinker website

By Chriss Steel

NASA space weather observations, extremely low sunspot counts, and a severe Polar Vortex are consistent with cyclical global cooling onset.
The complex flows of ions and electrons inside the Sun produce sunspots that average about ten times the size of the Earth and have magnetic fields that are ten thousand times stronger than the Earth's magnetic field.
Sunspots were first observed by Galileo in the early 1600s and have been scientifically tracked as 11-year cycles since 1755.   Read more...  » Earth changes, Sunspots, Jetstream   Read more...  »

                        Earths Magnetic Field and Slowing Ocean Currents Whats Causing It

Three events are overlapping to cause disruptions to global food supplies and energy dependence.
The AMOC or Atlantic Overturning Current is at the lowest strength in 1000 years, the Gulf stream is at its weakest in 100+ years and warmest in 150 years and now the Beaufort sea is dumping more fresh water into the same areas that should mix and turn the warm waters to the Atlantic depths.
This is now an 80% decrease than records show before.   YouTube video   Causes Overlap YouTube(15:21)

Dr. Peter Langdon Ward worked 27 years as a geophysicist with the United States Geological Survey, being featured on Good Morning America and winning two national awards for explaining science to non-scientists.
Nine years ago, while in retirement, he found reliable data suggesting that volcanic eruptions not only cool the earth for a few years, something that is well known, but also can warm the earth substantially.   Peter Ward on   YouTube video   YouTube (18:08)
