Warning Signs Of The 2011 Axial Seamount Eruption
2012-06-11 02:53:32

A team of scientists that last year created waves by correctly forecasting the 2011 eruption of Axial Seamount years in advance now says that the undersea volcano located some 250 miles off the Oregon coast gave off clear signals just hours before its impending eruption. The researchers´ documentation of inflation of the undersea volcano from gradual magma intrusion over a period of years led to the long-term eruption forecast. But new analyses using data from underwater hydrophones...

US scientists from Oregon and New York, who have been monitoring the Axial Seamount, an undersea volcano located 250 miles off the Oregon coast, said on Tuesday that they have successfully predicted an eruption for the first time. The team of scientists forecast the eruption beginning about five years ago, predicting the volcano, which last erupted in 1998, would erupt again sometime before 2014. This marks the first successful prediction of eruption of an undersea volcano. During an...

Scientists who have just returned from an expedition to an erupting undersea volcano near the Island of Guam report that the volcano appears to be continuously active, has grown considerably in size during the past three years, and its activity supports a unique biological community thriving despite the eruptions. An international science team on the expedition, funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), captured dramatic new information about the eruptive activity of NW Rota-1. "This...
