Reduced US Air Pollution Will Boost Rainfall In Africa's Sahel, Says Study

11:14 am Eastern | U.S. News

Falling sulfur dioxide emissions in the United States are expected to substantially increase rainfall in Africa's semi-arid Sahel, while bringing slightly more rain to much of the U.S., according to a new study.read more »

AVO Cleveland ORANGE/WATCH - No significant activity in seismic, infrasound or satellite data.

22 May 17:09 | SciTech

May 22, 2017 20:31 - No significant activity was observed in cloudy satellite and images, and no activity was detected in seismic or infrasound data over the past day. A steam and gas plume was observed in web camera images of the summit this morning. Cleveland volcano is monitored with a limited real-time seismic network, which inhibits AVO's ability to detect precursory unrest that may lead to an explosive eruption. Rapid detection of an ash-producing eruption may be possible using a combination of seismic, infrasound, lightning, and satellite data. read more »

AVO Bogoslof ORANGE/WATCH - No significant activity in seismic, infrasound or satellite data.

22 May 17:09 | SciTech

May 22, 2017 20:31 - No significant volcanic activity was observed at Bogoslof volcano in seismic, infrasound, or satellite data over the past day. Bogoslof volcano remains at a heightened state of unrest and in an unpredictable condition. Activity may ramp back up with additional explosions producing high-altitude (>15,000 ft) volcanic clouds with little precursory activity. Some previous explosions have been preceded by an increase in earthquake activity that allowed for short-term forecasts of imminent significant explosive activity. Although we are able to detect energetic explosive ...read more »

HVO Kilauea ORANGE/WATCH - Eruption continues at summit and East Rift Zone. Flows pose no threat to nearby communities.

22 May 15:37 | U.S. News

May 22, 2017 18:06 - Activity Summary: No significant change. Kīlauea Volcano continues to erupt at its summit in Halemaʻumaʻu and at Puʻu ʻŌʻō on the East Rift Zone. This morning the summit lava lake was about 32 m (105 ft) below the floor of Halemaʻumaʻu. The episode 61g lava flow continues to enter the ocean at Kamokuna. Active surface flows persist above and on the pali southeast of Puʻu ʻŌʻō. These pose no threat to nearby communities. Low rates of ground surface deformation and seismicity continue across the volcano. Summit Observations: Inflationary tilt continues ...read more »
