Haven't heard any more news about the Iceland volcano lately.
Is /pol/ wrong about The Happening again, or is something still going on?
Two magnitude 5+ quakes happened during the night.
Magnitude 2+ quakes now happening almost once a minute.
Tremor activity heightening.
>yellowstone won't be anything either
Yellowstone is a civilisation ender.
It's not a question of if, it's a question of when.
However, one caveat is that we might have developed the technology to quell the effects by the time it erupts, it might be that long.
Soo when is this thing supposed to stop being a bastard and quit affecting trans-atlantic flights.
This. There's between 150-400m of ice on top of the volcano. When it breaks through it will cause massive flooding and send shitloads of ash into the atmosphere. Should also be quite explosive because of the superheated steam.
I'm kind of hoping this will happen, we need some kind of big natural disaster to unite humanity a bit and stop our politicians acting like angry babies.
So far this volcano is more of a wet dog fart.
I am disappointed.
The amount of water in that glacier is the same as the entire Gulf of Mexico.
IF the entire glacier melted global sea levels would be raised by a couple of centimeters. Extremely unlikely that the entire thing will melt though so no worries there.
Take a look at this.
The seismic activity is picking up.
Now all of the tremors we get are +2 on the scale.
And keep in mind that it's a geological event.
Give it some time, these things might even take weeks.
Strongest earthquakes in Bardarbunga but most are in the dyke area.
Quake 0.1km below surface at Kistufelli 12 minutes ago. Shallowest yet.
>Mfw eruption happens when least expect it
>The eternal slumber
There hasn't been an earthquake in Bardarbunga for an hour and 40 minutes so the lava either all moved to Kistefell or pressure is building up and it's gonna shake fucking hard soon again.
>pressure is building up and it's gonna shake fucking hard soon again.
No, Yellowstone is much worse, it will be a real life Pompeii.
Icelandic volcanoes are formed on a constructive plate margin so any volcanoes have basaltic lava (gases easily escape, not viscous at all) so the volcanic eruptions are usually rather gentle.
Sorry mate but it ain't happening.
pol is always wrong
Bárdarbunga Volcano Eruptions:
2014, 2008, 2006, 2005, 2002, 2000, 1997, 1996, 1995, 1991, 1986, 1910, 1902-03, 1872?, 1862-64, 1807?, 1797, 1769, 1766, 1729, 1726, 1717, 1716, 1712,
1707, 1706, 1477, 1410?, 1159?, 1080?, 940?
The real likely happening, when it comes, will be a jökulhlaup. That happens when all the ice that the volcano melted to water breaks free of the glacier and makes a massive flood (no threat to anyone if they're not in the way, which is why that part of the island is now closed). It tends to happen a bit after the eruption itself starts, and is pretty likely.
Tremor levels are still pretty high. Wouldn't say it's over yet.
There has been a shitload of small quakes for the last couple of days and quite a bit stronger ones.
The graph is displaying tremors, constant shaking of the ground, not quakes. Supposedly it should get higher in case of an eruption.
>not posting actual Bardarbunga-chan
What's the retail on one of those?
Looks like she threw a tantrum and has calmed down now.
BARDABUNGA IS BACKED BY THE CIA TO MAKE PEOPLE IGNORE THE YELLOWSTONE ERUPTION WHICH IS BACKED BY ISRAEL TO MAKE PEOPLE IGNORE THE UPCOMING RELEASE OF METHANE FROM THE SEABEDS WHICH IS BACKED BY THE ILLUMINATI TO MAKE PEOPLE IGNORE THE UPCOMING GAMMA RAY BURST
>All these quakes
Im really stressed out guys. Its intensifying
You do not seem to understand your situation. Florida is a flood zone. The entire state, pretty much. It was not meant to be built upon. Even a slight rise in ocean levels will basically leave you wiped out the next time a hurricane rolls around. And this volcano could very easily cause such a rise.
/pol/ is never wrong
go away summerfriend
I'm not liking this webcam looking all steamy.
There's been some seismic activity in my area in Norcal around Napa and Lake county. I wonder if the pressure inbetween the mantle and the crust is being relieved elsewhere or something, after all earthquakes do send waves through the center of the earth when they go off.
Personally I hope it doesn't hit either of those counties, doesn't make sense being so far away from the San Andreas fault anyways.
There's always earthquakes & volcanoes and shit.
I'll just rest here on the sofa waiting for the happenstance.
>Won't melting the glacier, you know, raise the tides a little bit?
Not really, no. It would also be vastly offset by the growth of arctic sea ice it would cause.
>That's happening, it's a little happening, but it's happening, right?
The opposite happening you're thinking.
Nice dubs. And I like your repeating digits too.
If only Bardarbunga erupts, it won't fuck with the UK as the current winds would carry the ash towards the arctic.
But if both Bardarbunga and Askja erupt... well probably everyone will be dead in a few weeks because of cold, famine and poisonous gases in the air.
Apparently California is getting rekt by an earthquake.
Listening to that jewtube stream for live updates.
Indeed. The world is so boring now. We have already beaten it. There is literally no effort at all when it comes to living in America, we have basically beaten life. A volcano would make things actually interesting again. We might actually have to fight to survive for once.
Go read a book?
I see a common occurrence with teenagers or people with low attention spam, which is the lack of life enthusiasm. I can only but impute it to the numbing effect of movie and video game industry that directs itself only to satisfy more consumers, and that means broadening its user-base by lowering the standards, as well length to keep the attention of the viewer, player. It is the reason why you can only get from it shortcut philosophy and incomplete ideas.
Minimize your anime, movies, music, games. Take a book and concentrate on the subject, story it tells, you will see how fruitful entertainment and interest wise it can be.
Honestly, I haven't played a game in months. I haven't watched in movie in probably far longer.
I can't fucking get off 4chan man.
Every refresh is like a hit of pleasure, searching for new threads new responses.
I'm fucking addicted I can't fucking stop I didn't know how bad it was until I started taking breaks at work just to get on 4chan.
Fucking help me nigger.
Iceland, California, Chile. Precursors. It's hot it always happens. There will be a serious seismic event, >8 somewhere in the world before September 30th. It does not need to be a planet ending cataclysm. But it will make news for a day or two, then there will be the "miracle survivor" story, then it goes away.
A different geologist anon here, these would be what we're looking for, but they give a distinct pattern on seismometers, which is easily discernable from regular tectonic activity. as soon as we see frequent and powerful harmonic tremors it will be erupting soon, but for now there isn't too much to say that it will erupt in the very near future.
Drawfag here, h-hopefully this version's more quality. I'm not used to making animu.
its almost as if its Ebola chan vs. Bungabunga chan.
>there can only be one
I've read plenty of books, some of the better ones being The Forever War, Brave New World, 1984, Enders Game. But to suggest that they can bring you even the slightest bit of fulfillment... you are truly naive. Video games are *far* more engaging to me than any books I have read, and even those fail to make me enjoy life even slightly.
/pol/ is always wrong about the happening
There are no signs of magma erupting to the surface. It is a bad thing since if the vent is now melting the ice there are going to be thousands, perhaps million tonnes of melt water on top a volnanic vent. Guess what happens if the magma pressure goes down? Water goes down. Then a massive steam explosion like Krakatoa. This may rip few cubic kilometres of mountainside.
THIS IS IT, GOOD LUCK BARDARBUNGA CHAN
She's chilled the fuck out a bit from earlier. I say it's just the calm before the storm.
Idiots jumping the gun. They had thought yesterday that there was an eruption at dyng glacial, but it turns out that it didn't erupt. Shits just rumbling there. It might erupt, but no telling when.
Just an incompetent journalist using old data and (probably) ignoring newer data to make the story sound more spectacular. I see post on twitter still about Iceland issuing a red alert which was lowered to orange hours ago.
Possible earthquake lightning spotted in several locations in Norway last night. Shit was fucking scary. I saw lightning that illuminated an entire valley for several seconds, but no thunder. Gonna be on the lookout for more tonight.
Oh boy. All the tremor graphs near the happening sem to be spiking.
You should read more classical works if those are your choices of "better" books. Every little story or game mechanic will feel repulsive or boring after a while. You will get a new understanding why many people doesn't even find video games interesting, just smiling and shaking their heads saying they don't play, them having better fulfillment in pursuing some art or technology branch. Think of the makers of video games; I don't think they are playing games as much has they were kids, they rather make them and challenge themselves, see what they can create. And in that branch goes for everyone - programers stuck with their texts, figuring out how to make things work; modelers trying to recreate character made by concept artist's, them both hand in hand with specialist of the game engine; producer keeping an eye on everything to be popular and could be able to sell(strong arguments is the clear dumbing down of games, so we can infer that most people involved in game creation have bigger priorities over how quality the game should be) - everyone but, perhaps, beta-testers, but even for them can attribute not the joy of playing the game but of the crashing and breaking it.
Uh. I've already worked on a programming team for a fairly big game. It is interesting, sure, but stressful as hell. It wears your mind out until you can't take it anymore. And what might some of these better 'older' books be? I've read Tess of d'Urbervilles, Scarlet Letter, Great Expectations, Old Man and the Sea, all shit. It always amazes me how bookfags think books are the height of interesting creations. Video games fill a urge that books can't even come close to touching: The urge of hunting prey. Even the games that are nothing at all like hunting fill this urge for me, like Super Meat Boy. There is nothing so utterly satisfying as achieving perfect execution in an extremely mechanically complex scenario.
lots of new +2 magn in the last half hour as well.
>Is /pol/ wrong about The Happening again
>What is interesting is that at the current direction and speed of propagation the swarm will reach Askja in 4 days.
Another surface quake at north part of the fissure.
early on, i had a strange feeling that askja would be involved and that this might set off two volcanoes.
it's really too bad we haven't developed better underground imaging techniques.
for anyone interested, these are good too and give an idea of what is actually up in iceland;
>rifting fissure eruption
This is Laki. You may get to see something like it soon.
