the awesome power of mother nature - spill containment
Iceland's Eyjafjallajokull volcano erupted, and Iceland's Eyjafjallajokull volcano erupted 2010 Times, which is relatively small for volcanic eruptions, but the eruption in the days of April 2010 still caused huge disruption to air travel through Western Europe and northern Europe.
More local disruptions continued in May 2010.
When the volcano erupted in April, ash covered large parts of northern Europe.
Some 20 countries have closed airspace over commercial aircraft, affecting more than 100,000 passengers.
The earthquake activity began at the end of 2009, and the intensity gradually increased. until March 20, 2010, a small eruption was started on the basis of the volcanic eruption and was rated as Grade 1.
From April 14, 2010, the eruption entered the second phase and generated a ash cloud, resulting in the closure of most of the IFR airspace in Europe from the 15 th to April 20, 2010.
As a result, the proportion of flights to and from Europe canceled was very high, causing the highest level of air travel disruption since World War II.
The second phase of the eruption began in April 14, 2010 with an estimated 0. 25 billion cubic meters of tephra.
The ash plume rises to a height of about 9 kilometers, which makes the explosive force of the volcanic eruption equivalent to 4 kilometers of the volcanic eruption.
By May 21, 2010, the second eruption phase had subsided and no more lava or ash had been produced.
More earthquake activity has been generated.
By the morning of May 24, 2010, photographs taken by a network camera installed on Porolfsfell showed that only one water vapor was surrounded by blue smoke caused by sulfur gas emissions.
Due to the large amount of dry ash on the ground, the ground wind often raises the ash fog, which greatly reduces visibility and makes it impossible to observe the volcano with a web camera.
The terrible forces of NatureVolcano mother's volcanic eruption, oil spill, earthquake, storm, hurricane, tsunami, storm and flood are the best or man-made disasters of mother nature.
Mother Nature or Mother Earth can surprise me sometimes.
With all these current activities going on around the world, I can't help but ask, is this what nature is doing her or is the recent global disaster man-made?
We need to rethink how we treat our planet and show more respect to our mother earth.
We are constantly being taken away from the resources of nature, which is OK in moderation, but perhaps we are also being taken away with more resources than we need.
We seem to have a lot of "natural disasters" lately, which makes me think.
Are they "natural disasters" or "man-made disasters "?
The officially announced volcanic eruption on the evening of June 6, 2010 opened a new small crater on the west side of the main crater.
A small amount of volcanic ash has been observed from this new crater.
Earthquake data show that the frequency and intensity of the Earth's vibration still exceeds the level before the eruption, so scientists from the Iceland Meteorological Bureau and the Earth Science Institute, the University of Iceland, continue to monitor the volcano.
On October 2010 skrmann h skskuldsson, a scientist at the University of Iceland's Institute of Earth Sciences, said that the volcanic eruption had officially ended, although the area was still geothermal active and could erupt again
In order to improve the monitoring of Iceland's volcanoes, a nearby volcano called grsvv tn began erupting on May 2011, mainly disrupting Iceland's air travel.
Efforts are being made to improve the monitoring of Icelandic volcanoes and to give early warning of possible eruptions.
The future VOLC project, funded by the EU, involves more sensors and better authenticity
Analysis of time data
This is in response to the 2010 eruption, which closed most of Europe's airspace.
It is hoped that this work will better detect the upcoming volcanic eruptions and map their evolution.
"The volcano is actually screaming 'I am about to erupt,'" Dr Matthew Roberts of the Iceland Meteorological Bureau told the BBC '. ".
"Before they break out, they show a lot of measurable signs, and for today's volcanologists, it's a challenge to really collect all the information and use it in real time, this is the revolution of the future.
"After the eruption of the volcano in Iceland, the airport reopened, causing air traffic disruption. Dublin Airport reopened and ash threatened to be recovered on Monday, May 17, 2010.
All airports in Ireland were reopened after the ash flight was suspended yesterday and this morning until further notice.
The Irish Aviation Authority said it expects no restrictions on Irish airspace in at least the next 48 hours.
Authorities say the ash cloud is now moving east from Irish airspace.
Restrictions were also lifted at Heathrow and Gatwick.
From one o'clock P. M. to seven o'clock P. M. today.
There are still flight zones in the Orkney and Shetland Islands, but all other airports in the UK have lifted restrictions.
Airports in Amsterdam and Rotterdam are also reopened.
Please check the airline website for an update on the disruption of air traffic passengers intending to fly in the next few days, it is recommended to check the airline website before going to the airport.
In a statement released tonight, the Academy of Aerospace Sciences said that the revised safety zone agreed by the aviation authorities, airlines and aircraft manufacturers will be introduced tomorrow at noon.
The new flight area is expected to reduce flight restrictions.
The new approach includes a new three.
Regional security zones, including internal no-fly zones, time-restricted zones and enhanced procedural zones.
Approved certified aircraft can now operate within a limited period of time with the approval of its regulatory authorities and engine and fuselage manufacturers.
As I'm sure you all know, right now we have black gold or oil, oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
This is killing so many of our wild animals that God only knows what it does in the depths of our ocean.
So far, I think it has leaked 4 million gallons of oil to the ocean.
I have heard somewhere that people call oil black gold.
I wonder if those who call oil "black gold" will still look at it like watching oil destroy our beautiful oceans and wildlife?
The Gulf of Mexico oil spill threat to marine life 2010 the Gulf of Mexico oil spill threat to marine life, this threat may eventually far beyond the Gulf.
From the Deepwater Horizon explosion in April 20 to the temporary lid placed on the leaking well in July 15, the Interior Ministry estimated 35,000 to 60,000 barrels (
1,470,000 to 2,520,000 gallons)
A large amount of crude oil flows into the Gulf every day.
At the low end, this is enough to fill the aquarium's giant ocean cans about 600 times.
Pollution has spread to the Florida coast and may move north along the East Coast through circulation this fall.
On Friday, June 04, 2010, BP began capturing some oil from the Gulf of Mexico leak. BP said it had begun capturing some oil from the Gulf of Mexico's cracked well after installing a safety helmet on site.
The U. S. Coast Guard says the helmet at the top of the leak now collects about 1,000 barrels of oil a day.
This is a sign that energy companies have made progress after several failed attempts.
BP has spent more than $1 bn on its cleaningup operation.
S. officials warn against being too optimistic, however, that a lot of oil is still leaking.
BP expects that the oil flow will not be completely stopped until the completion of the two relief wells in August.
Coast Guard admiral Sade Allen told reporters today that the amount of oil captured should increase as BP closes its vents to capture more oil.
Earlier, Doug Suttles, BP's chief operating officer, said the helmet should work by capturing 90% of the oil.
However, of the 1,000 barrels a day that the US government estimates could leak from the well, 19,000 barrels is only a fraction.
Elsewhere, oil shine and tar balls are washed ashore on a beach in northwest Florida.
Oil debris landed on Pensacola Beach. Pensacola Beach is part of the Gulf Islands National waterfront, promoting "the whitest beach in the world ".
Florida has been preparing for the expected arrival of oil this week, which has reached the western coast of Luis Anna, Mississippi and Alabama.
On April, the Deepwater Horizon rig sank after an explosion killed 11 workers.
Hurricane alerts of this intensity can seriously damage buildings and disrupt oil and gas production, experts say.
They can even stop BP's efforts to stop the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
"If we have a serious storm. . .
The storm is my biggest concern.
"Pushing Oil further onto land and onto Mississippi, possibly the beach area of Alabama," said meteorologist Aaron Studwell . ".
Mr Studwell said that such a surge would destroy the beaches and more swamps, which the authorities are currently working to protect from oil spills.
Even if BP immediately stopped further leaks, there was already enough oil at sea to cause environmental disasters, he added.
Unusually warm seawater temperatures lag behind NOAA's predictions, but the degree of activity of the season depends on the weather conditions formed by La Nina, which encourages the development of storms.
S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says La Nina's conditions look very favorable.
At twenty-two o'clock P. M. on Friday, May 28, 2010, British Sky News Jonathan Robbins reported that the upcoming Atlantic storm season could bring the most devastating hurricane in years, and it was warned.
S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicts as many as 14 hurricanes in the western Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico (NOAA). . .
Up to seven of them could be big storms.
"These numbers will be very high," Hurricane Forecasters William Gray said . ".
He added that this year's season starts from next week until the end of November and "looks like a hell of a year . ".
The current hurricane record was set in 2005, with 15 hurricanes, including Hurricane Katrina, killing about 1,500 people and causing $80 in losses (Â£55bn)in damage.
As many as seven hurricanes are predicted to be Category 3 or above
Their wind speed is more than 10 miles per hour.
"If this prospect is correct, this season may be one of the more active seasons that have been recorded," said Jane lüblchenko, administrator of NOAA.
