Kurile Islands, July 2019: Ebeko volcano
Impressions from our pilot tour to the northern Kurile Islands in July 2019: we spent a few days in Severo-Kurilsk at the feet of active Ebeko volcano. Ebeko has been in continuous eruption for several years, consisting in intermittent mild to moderate explosions and ash emissions. During our visit, it erupted approx. once every 1-2 hours. Ebeko has a highly developed hydrothermal system with intense fumarolic activity, producing very impressive and active fumaroles near its summit cone.
Top 20 quakes in 2016 Several magnitude 7 quakes occurred in 2016 (but none above M8): Papua New Guinea, NZ, Ecuador, Solomon Islands, Sumatra, Chile, Alaska and others - nearly all major earthquakes were located near active subduction zones. See the top 20 list of largest quakes in 2016 with this map.
Seismic crisis in SW Iceland In mid Feb 2021, a strong seismic crisis started on the Reykjanes peninsula, caused by a magmatic intrusion that could lead up to a new volcanic eruption. Follow the latest developments!
