Alaska: Volcano That’s Been Dormant For More Than 800 Years Showing Signs Of Life


A United States volcano that’s been dormant for more than 800 years is seeing some action.

Researchers with the Alaska Volcano Observatory and Alaska Satellite Facility recently shared research that revealed that magma beneath Mount Edgecumbe, a volcano in Alaska, has been moving upward through the earth’s crust.

The discovery came from new technology the facilities employed that uses computer modeling on satellite imagery. The data showed that magma is rising in a United States volcano that’s been long dormant about 6 miles from a depth of about 12 miles.

It has caused significant surface deformation, according to researchers.

“That’s the fastest rate of volcanic deformation that we currently have in Alaska,” said the research paper’s lead author, Ronni Grapenthin, a University of Alaska Fairbanks associate professor of geodesy.

“And while it is not uncommon for volcanoes to deform, the activity at Edgecumbe is unusual because reactivation of dormant volcanic systems is rarely observed,” he added.

However, a United States volcano that’s been long dormant is not expected to erupt any time soon, Grapethin said. more here

  1. Maybe that’s why all the crabs up there are disappearing?
    They know something…

  2. Zzzzz, look at me! I study dormant volcanoes!!! Everybody panick!

    When will it erupt? Oh, some indeterminent number of years in the future?

    Slow news day.

  3. As long as we’re talking about things rarely seen on the planet, how about an industrialized world that supports life for nearly 8 billion people at a time of relative calm and warmth that further supports life. To think there’s a small group of people – with all the wealth – that demonize and are hellbent on destroying the primary building block, carbon, who convince NPCs to parrot their message far and wide.

  4. OK, Mother Earth does things. This leads to what we can do to eliminate or reverse weather/climate / liberal politics.
    We are people. I do not think we can significantly change the world or Nature “(God)” Yes, I do believe that he does pay attention to us. He has a plan. If he is waiting for us to present ourselves, then I am on the side of doing what I can, but not kneeling to those who want a guaranteed result (liberal)

    I am not sure that all makes sense, but He created us. He is watching. If my ideals do not match his, then I will be in the line in the near future.

  5. OK.
    How do they know it erupted 800 years ago?
    The Eskimos told em?
    Carbon dated the lava flows?

    I smell bullshit.

    mortem tyrannis
    izlamo delenda est …

  6. Been dormant, now showing signs of life? Sounds like the MAGmA movement

  7. Is this a distraction to keep us from focusing on Biden’s historic failures and treason just before the mid terms?

  8. The Earth is 4,300,000,000 years old. That’s BILLIONS of years.
    WTF is 800 years to the Earth? 800 years is 1/5,375,000th of the age of the Earth!!!!!!

    This is why ‘global warming’ and the likes of Al Gore are complete scams.

  9. The only eruption coming out of Alaska that I want to see is Murkowski getting her ASS kicked.

  10. This says it all,

    Mat_24:7  For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
    Mar_13:8  For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.
    Luk_21:11  And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. KJB

  11. Yeah, but thankfully, no mention of volcanoes.

    mortem tyrannis
    izlamo delenda est …

  12. Bill Clinton heard only the word eruption on the TV news and asked: “All right, where are the Bimbos?”

  13. Remember, if this volcano does erupt, it will be because…


  14. Good, maybe it will vent some pressure away from Yellowstone. Besides, nobody lives in Alaska.

  15. They need to throw Lisa Murkowski into it AT ONCE to assuage Mother Gaia!

    It’s only fair!

  16. It’s the Ring of Fire doing Ring of Fire shit.
    I’m not going to lose sleep over it.

  17. Warn the Scientologists! Xemu is trying to escape!
