Bardarbunga | Holuhraun Volcano Eruption, September 13th 2014

Volcanoes all over the world are becoming active, as you can see… -LW

Holuhraun is a fissure type vulcano. The magma rises from miles beneath the surface and devides the pressure a little more then when it erupts thrue a crater. Since the eruption site is located on dry land and not in contact with ice there is no ash plume. This fissure is part of a huuge underground system of magma resting underneath the vatnajökull glacier. The magma was originally on its way up thrue the bardarbunga crater but then changed its way and moved down towards the north east caldera ridge. Bardarbunga has many fissure flanks around it and the magma found its way to one of them. But the main vulcano, the bardarbunga vulcano is known for explosive eruptions and is said to erupt approx twice every century. It has erupted 300-400 times during the last 10.000 years and 8600 years ago it created the largest lavaflow EVER on earth which traveled more then 100km to the south coast. The eruption in 1477 was described as a massive explosive eruption resulting in a large ash plume and aswell the large lavaflow as described earlier. The magma outflow at holahrun goes as high as 50-200m up in the air.

I couldn’t film this time since i was flying. It was pretty windy around 20-30 kt and my friends first time filming dslr with the 50mm so it is a little shaky hehe but it turned out pretty nice anyway i think :)

Mysterious ‘Lake’ Appears in Middle of Tunisian Desert; Now Overnight Tourist Attraction [video]

Thanks, Nick.

Fascinating. I was thinking the other day about the massive sinkholes and that bottomless, swirling eddy in Russia we saw a couple of years ago that just kept sucking meltwater and everything in it to some unknown destination… and recently the big hole in the ground in Russia, which appears it may be the roof of tunnels that collapsed, and now water surfacing in places where there hasn’t been any—it seems Gaia is truly cleaning house and rearranging the furniture.

Change is good, right? We want to stay away from that archon programming and predictability. Maybe Gaia does, as well.  

Maybe she’s exposing and cleaning out the reptilians’ tunnels. 

Unfortunately, in that heat, if there isn’t a constant flow of water to circulate the water, it will get nasty and they’ll have to ban swimming.  ~ BP

A mysterious lake that appeared suddenly in the Tunisian desert has created an impromptu “beach” in the drought-ridden country.No explanation has been given for the sudden appearance of “Gafsa Beach”, which was discovered by shepherds three weeks ago.

Authorities have warned that the water, which started off a crystalline blue and has since turned a murky green with algae, could be carcinogenic but Tunisians have not been able to resist cooling off in the 40C heat.

More than 600 people are believed to have flocked to the pool, locally dubbed “Lac de Gafsa”, where they have paddled, scuba dived, launched themselves off rocks and relaxed on lilos.

“Some say that it is a miracle, while others are calling it a curse,” journalist Lakhdar Souid told France 24.

There has been no official explanation for the lake’s origins and while some geologists believe seismic activity may have caused groundwater to rise to the surface by disrupting the water table, others disagree.

According to local authorities, the volume of the pool could be one million cubic metres over more than one hectare, with a depth of between 10 and 18 metres.

No official ban on swimming has been put in place but Gafsa’s Office of Public Safety warned Tunisians that the water may be contaminated or even radioactive.

“This lake is located in an area rich in phosphate deposits, which leave residue that is sometimes strongly radioactive,” Mr Souid wrote in Tunisia Daily.

“So there is a real risk the water is contaminated and carcinogenic.

“In the first few days, the water was a crystal clear, turquoise blue. Now it is green and full of algae.

“This means it is not being replenished and is conducive to disease.”

The Gafsa region of central Tunisia is home to the country’s mining industry and phosphate was first discovered in 1886.

Tunisia is the world’s fifth largest exporter of the chemical, used in agriculture and industry, and the Gafsa is home to one of the largest phosphate mines.
