The world is rocking, and EXPLODING, with Anak Krakatau (Indonesia) becoming the latest sign indicating that this is indeed a full-blown Grand Solar Minimum we’re entering…
The center for Volcanology and Geological Disaster Mitigation (PVMB) recorded two eruptions at the volcano, one at 9.58pm and another at 10.35pm on Friday, April 10, West Indonesia Time.
Soon after, the Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Darwin issued a warning of a thick ash plume rising to an estimated 47,000 ft (14.3 km).
Particulates ejected to altitudes above 32,800 ft (10 km) –and into the stratosphere– often linger, where they have a direct cooling effect on the planet.
Explosive activity is continuing, according to volcanodiscovery.com.
Volcanic eruptions are one of the key forcings driving Earth into its next bout of global cooling, with their activity tied to low solar activity and the resulting influx of Cosmic Rays (more on that below).
The volcano experienced its last large eruption in 2018, sparking a tsunami and killing 437 people according to official figures.
Anak Krakatau is the result of the infamous Krakatoa eruption of 1883, one of the biggest on record, killing at least 36,500 people.
That eruption released 20 million tons of sulphur into the atmosphere and produced a volcanic winter, reducing worldwide temperatures by an average of 1.2 °C (2.2 °F) for five years.
After a quiescence of less than a half century, the post-collapse cone of Anak Krakatau was constructed within the 1883 caldera.
Recent activity of Krakatau and its out-gassing is increasing with strombolian to vulcanian-style explosions from the summit crater.
If this baby goes in a big way (VEI 6+) expect immediate darkening of the skies, global cooling, immediate crop loss, and civil unrest.
Increasing Activity Worldwide
Elsewhere in the world, Shiveluch has also popped in a big way (April 11), and there are concerns volcanic activity in Iceland is beginning to ramp-up.
According to the Iceland Meteorological Office, Iceland has seen more than 8,000 earthquakes since January 21, 2020.
Magma intrusions have also caused a land uplift of 10cm, prompting fears volcanic activity will increase further.
Dave McGarvie, a volcanologist at Lancaster University, told the Guardian: “It seems that after being relatively inactive for many centuries, this region is waking up.”
Iceland saw its last period of volcanic activity on the peninsula in the 10th Century, and continued for some 300 years.
Seismic and Volcanic activity has been correlated to changes in our sun.
The recent global uptick in earthquakes and volcanic eruptions is likely attributed to the drop-off in solar activity, coronal holes, a waning magnetosphere, and the influx of Cosmic Rays penetrating silica-rich magma.
