Increased activity of Sangay volcano, Ecuador

Since Monday 23 January 2012, there has been an intensification of Sangay volcano's activity, as indicated by reports from pilots who reported the presence of ash from the volcano drifting S-SE. In addition, satellite images from 24 Jan show the presence of thermal anomalies at the volcano.
Sangay is one of the most active volcanoes in Ecuador, in frequent activity since the 17th century when it was discovered. However, due to its very remote location, at the eastern end of the Andes cordillera, its monitoring is limited to occasional field observations and observations by aircraft and from satellite.

In the first half of 2009 in particular, this crater was in spectacular, vigorous activity. It had quickly built a tall cone, changing and dominating the crater terrace of Stromboli, and although more changes have happened, it is still one of the main features of the crater today. read all

Petrified giant tree on Lesbos
Millions of years ago, dense forests were growing on the slopes of the island of Lesbos. Sequoias reached enormous heights. Eventually, after a long repose interval, the volcanoes of the island became active again. One of the largest eruptions generated hot ash flow that engulfed once verdant mountain forests and buried them under many meters of hot ash. ... read all
