Sorry about the lack of posts - I've been not only frantically prepping for class and my Eyja talk, but also I'm somewhat under the weather with an ill-timed sickness, so even though there is stuff to talk about, I haven't really had time/wherewithal to deal with it.
However, expect big things from Eruptions next week!
Drawing of a ship washed inland by the tsunami generated by the August 27, 1883 eruption of Krakatau.
I'll throw a few quick links:
The alert status at Galeras has been dropped back down to "orange" after the non-explosive eruption earlier this week. However, INGEOMINAS warns us the threat is still there (spanish) for an eruption (and more evacuations).
Curious about what is going on underneath Yellowstone - check out the great post on Highly Allochthonous that examines the source of the giant North American caldera system.
Dr. Boris Behncke has kept us appraised on the currently activity at Etna on his photostream - not a lot of coverage of this new activity at the Italian volcano in any other media source.
