A regular google search didn’t find it, so I will need to check the press databases at work. With regards to LIP’s, Flood Basalts, etc, I would have to imagine it’s only a matter of time until we get another wave of flood basalts coming from the great African rift system. When you find it in the air near a volcano, magma must be close to the surface and lava may follow soon. It seems like terrestrial and marine extinctions are somewhat independent at times, the chixulub meteor might have been worse in the ocean than on land. And looking back, the major flood basalt eruptions can have poisoned a significant part of the continent they occurred on. For anyone out on the beach, that blocks the typical way back to the mainland. Cutis. A faster geological carbon cycle means snowball events and ice ages are less likley. Since most of the SO2 we’re interested in is within the Junge (aerosol) layer, any appreciable changes in the tropopause should translate to different rates of SO2 decay. The flood basalts spanned over 5000 kilometers covering an arera almost the size of 11 million km2 in lava. In reality, things are more complicated. Volcanoes deposit their gasses higher in the troposphere, by ejecting them at high temperatures and with a considerable push. The bottom of the oceanic crust stays hotter. Last week, there was a minor outbreak of sunspots and one had reverse polarity. and drifted SW, W, NW, and N. The Alert Level remained at 2 (on a scale of 1-4); residents and visitors were warned not to approach the volcano within 2 km of the crater. It makes literal battery acid. Trying to fit 10,000 m3/s of a very heavy 1200 C viscous liquid through a 10 meter wide hole made from what is basically compressed gravel for 3 days is going to be a rather violent event, think fire hose through a 1 mm wide hole… This stage probably only erupted about 10% of the magma and most of the damage would have been afterwards but the eruption was way more agressive and violent than it is usually portrayed. Surface air temperature (SAT) anomaly (°C) for the winter of 1783–1784 (DJF) induced by the Laki eruption using the model simulations by Oman et al. According to a news article about 2,000 people evacuated. The Key word here is “POTENTIAL.” That means it isn’t even a storm yet. From: https://www.mbari.org/flexural-arch/. The gas spreads out further than the lava itself and affects many more people. I actually made an error before, the 80 km3 measurement is for a single lava flow on that province, the entire thing has probably tens to hundreds of flows over its area that are in that size, adding up to many thousands of km3 of lava. They are on a different scale though, where the fissures may be 100’s of kilometers long and the lava flows can reach over 500 kilometer. Human noses are so sensitive to it that HVO has reported that SO2 from the Leilani fissures had become undetectable by their instruments whilst they were still able to smell it. When sulfur dust mixes with oxygen, it forms sulfur dioxide, which when ignited causes explosion 2. By law, all new construction must have the lowest floor open to withstand storm surge. A brief review of the many conflicting studies that attempt to prove or disprove this hypothesis is also presented. The KT event was mainly terrestrial but did not leave the sea untouched. We are just catching the first of what will probably be a lot of thunderstorms. SO2 Altitude Min: 19 km I’m assuming by aquatic dinosaurs you mean plesiosaurs or mosasaurs. This pulls the continent, and if you have subduction zones on both sides, it could pull the continent apart. This is a dangerous substance that can cause damage to the eyes, nose and lungs. The sulfur above the saturation limit is eventually expected to be outgassed into the atmosphere. I think that counts as a flood basalt, even if it hasn’t had 1000 km3 scale lava flows. When the outlook vent opened in 2008, the vog around the crater went through the roof (figuratively speaking) and health concerns led to the closure of the crater rim drive (the explosion hurling rocks on to the parking area was also a factor, of course). Bauer, Susan Wise. The lava clearly degassed at the summit before traveling down the rift. Therefore CO2 is mainly produced by non-erupting volcanoes, and comes up all over the place, perhaps far from the eventual exit point of the magma. http://moe.met.fsu.edu/cyclonephase/cmc/fcst/archive/18090112/20.html. Normal track would take it there… I still think they are getting their hopes up. A single exposure to a high concentration can cause a long-lasting condition like asthma. Many radioactive elements are attracted to iron so Earth probably has the highest endemic heat flow of any of the terrestrial objects in our solar system (io doesn’t count in that respect because it is driven by tidal forces) Now we have wall to wall “experts” hopping around on TV screaming for attention about Gordon… and that I should buy a matress. Side note. Even the recent explosion from manam a few days ago had a jetting lava fountain. . Given the current setting and conditions… slim. But it is either this or a plume, not both. Works same in the southern hemisphere only opposite. If the majority of this was emitted within one year, the Roza eruption would have been nine times worse over that year, and it lasted ten times as long. What are the best treatment approaches for a sulfur intolerance? That holding facility is still going to be near downtown, so if it get hammered by the next nasty storm, they are still going to have the “Fish and Feces” aroma problem for 3 to 4 months after the storm to deal with (again). … so basically, Gordons only real chance to reach hurricane wind speeds is from smacking into land. How about James Dean? The Larch, Wey- mouth Pine, and hardy Scotch fir, had the tips of their leaves withered; . No, you got it right. We had back to back 100 year Floods in Jackson MS…. Worldwide, our emissions far exceed those of volcanoes. In Kilauea, the SO2 came from the caldera, and from the erupting fissures. . Might not be much energy left for it to feed on. While contacting the electrical contractor, their dispatch operator noted that if I could send a photo of the damage, they could effect a quote much faster than scheduling an estimating visit, so I had to slog out through the mud to get this photo. So basically the same as it is now but without the moon. Sulfur is among the easiest detectable substances, and for good reason. Earth being the largest rocky planet, haves the most internal heating among the solid objects. The info says a volume of about 80 km3 total but given the flows are apparently confirmed to have had massive eruption rate, are as big as all the islands together in surface area as well as erupted in the deep sea I think there might be some underestimating on the volume. Lethal levels for prolonged exposure are not readily available, but can be assumed to be lower: 1 ppm (2mg/m3) is disabling even for short durations. Mosasaurs were converging very closely to ichthyosaurs by the end of the Cretaceous (just look at Mosasaurus next to Temnodontosaurus, convergent evolution at its finest) so I think there would be a decent chance of them surviving in some way through the Deccan traps, same for plesiosaurs (which were not declining at the end despite most sources). There are also some massive flows around Hawaii called the north arch volcanic field that are probably borderline flood basalts too but are not a thick plateau. Thing took a slice and is headed here. The molten core will last longer (note that on Earth, the growth of the solid part of the core actually provides around 10% of the heat input to the bottom of the mantle). I spotted an article featuring recent research about the position of Mt St. Helen’s. Also, it’s my understanding that high-energy particles and not UV that drives the bulk of the atmospheric response (Schuurmanns and Oort (1969). But the downsides outweigh the spectacle. Should have had a more descriptive name. The Permian killer was heat, and therefore CO2 and methane. It was basically olympus mons on earth…, It is kind of hard to imagine, especially as a lot of books/information are trying to bring a contradiction to this idea, but the popular perception of a flood basalt being like, non stop for a million years is actually not inaccurate for the Deccan traps at its peak (western ghats – 1.5 million km3 of lava in 30,000 years, K/Pg boundary included). -many plates, rifts, ranges and volcanoes; possibly so hot inside that its plates are more elastic than Earth’s. A coal stove that isn't properly vented can be subject to backdrafts that can fill the house with toxic coal fumes. No problem after that… This was bout 15 years ago.. I may think it’s boring as @#$@, but Florida can always give you something nice to look at. That makes quite a difference, although it should be noted that in the real world, eruptions slow down as they age and the pressure behind them reduces. My question is this an excepted event? Which reminds me. Given my pondering about Homo Stultus, think the second interpretation might be most accurate. Both times, the blueness of the UK sky was notable. Fumes The reason wood stoves and coal stoves are vented through chimneys is because burning wood or coal creates smoke. Sulfur smells really bad. They smell. A volcano manages to reach the stratosphere about once every other year. Gordon to reach hurricane strength before landfall. It was strike-slip. Instead these events were called ‘dry fog’. The HWRF model run seems to support the idea of it not having much time to get things together. Small gas leaks may not have a smell or other physical signs. Res. During solar minimum, all that shuts down and the water vapor just builds up and you huge deluge events wherever it gets concentrated. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) advises limiting exposure to wood-burning stoves and their fumes and always adhering to safety precautions whenever you use them. The highest performing athletes would all have to contend with SO2 destroying their lungs. I am relying on memory, so I will need to see if I can’t find the reference. It could be that there are very large deep magma reservoirs under nyamuragira that will one day feed much bigger flows in the rift. The balance changes as the magma evolves. With numerous small microcontinets and orogenic belts scattered everwhere. Both would probably be very similar to cetaceans in their oxygen requirement. This process can take 1-2 years. An interesting tidbit: the trade winds only extend up to 2 or 3 kilometers. Approximate location 30.336680N° – 87.108385W°. I would have let him have it just to prove a point, but I don’t need him in pain. Caldera collapse during the catastrophic 1883 eruption destroyed Danan and Perbuwatan volcanoes, and left only a remnant of Rakata volcano. W. W. Norton & Company. http://seismo.berkeley.edu/~manga/LIPS/thordarson03.pdf. That would be consistent with the beginning of the next solar cycle, but it appeared in the equatorial region rather than the higher latitudes. Another thing, the opening stages of the flood basalts would have been stratospheric, skaftar fires was, and the km scale fountains and massive thermal effect of that much lava would be far bigger than any normal eruption. Lake kivu has a depth of 400 meters, and about the same width as nyamuragira (~40 km). Ivan, the one that got me in 2004 was a spinning down system as well and arrived at Cat 3. The effects of the eruption and impact were additive. (Chlorine gas was used as a weapon during World War I. That’s how nasty it is.). Additionally, inhaled fumes, particularly if from a mist, can cause: * breathing difficulties * headaches * drowsiness * blurred vision * irregular eye movements * nausea * vomiting Material Safety Data Sheets show that repeated inhalation of antifreeze fumes may affect the central nervous system 1. See Section 5 from the following research. Yeah, the thing never got a closed eyewall.
