Fire Earth

Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Manam Volcano Puffs Out a Small Plume


Manam Volcano released a small plume on June 16, 2010, which was captured by ALI on NASA’s EO-1 satellite.  Source: NASA E/O.

The 1,807-m Manam, one of Papua New Guinea most active volcanoes, last erupted in 2009, is a  basaltic-andesitic stratovolcano forming a 10-km wide island, located about 13km off the coast of mainland PNG.

“Frequent historical eruptions, typically of mild-to-moderate scale, have been recorded at Manam since 1616. Occasional larger eruptions have produced pyroclastic flows and lava flows that reached flat-lying coastal areas and entered the sea, sometimes impacting populated areas.” —GVP.
