Vast ranges of volcanoes hidden under the oceans flare up on strikingly regular cycles, says a new study from Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. Continue reading Submarine volcanoes may alter climate
Axial Seamount, an active underwater volcano located about 300 miles (482 km) off the coast of Oregon and Washington, appears to be erupting, says a news release from Oregon State University. Continue reading Underwater volcano erupts off Northwest coast
Recent headlines downplay the importance of this super-heated water by calling it a “warm blob,” but this particular blob – which covers one million square miles! – can help explain the deceptive claims of “warmest year on record.”
It could also trigger the next ice age. Continue reading Pacific Ocean far warmer than normal – NOT our fault
Or is it the other way around? Do ice ages trigger underwater volcanic activity? How about global warming? Continue reading Do underwater volcanoes trigger ice ages?
(I wonder what’s heating the seas?) Continue reading Brand new volcanic island – Video
The scale and magnitude of the explosive activity dwarfs anything seen on other mid-ocean ridges. Continue reading Arctic seafloor afire with lava-spewing volcanoes
Validation! I’ve been saying this for years!* Underwater volcanic activity changes with the seasons and Earth’s orbit, and correlates with the Milankovitch (ice-age) cycle. Continue reading Underwater volcanoes alter climate, new study finds
Shoots smoke, steam and ash thousands of feet into the sky. Continue reading Video – Underwater volcano erupting near Tonga
Although it is erupting underwater, the volcano is sending ash and steam high into the sky today. Continue reading Large Eruption of Active Undersea Volcano in Tonga
But I don’t get it. They’re saying that glaciers cause glaciation, which to me is like saying that rain causes precipitation. Continue reading Growing Antarctic Ice Sheets (Supposedly) Sparked Ice Age, says new study
What does it mean for winter? Continue reading Warmest West Coast waters in decades – Maybe EVER
One also wonders “How many of these newly found thousands of volcanic seamounts are producing CO2 that bubble into the ocean?” Continue reading How many of the thousands of newly discovered volcanoes are pumping vast amounts of HEAT into the ocean?
The number of seamounts quadruples, soaring from around 5,000 to about 20,000 Continue reading Scientists identify thousands of previously unknown seamounts (volcanoes)
