Note: This is NOT an image from current events. This is just so to know what to expect.
Most people are not familiar with the main type of eruption we get here: *fissure eruptions*. Rather than occurring in an established crater, the ground "unzips" in chunks across hundreds of meters to kilometers
Over the first few days, expect the fissures to widen and new vents to open. Weak vents slowly die off, breaking it up into craters. In the early days, flow rates are highest, and you can get powerful lava fountains visible from great distances. The power feels unearthly.
Bit by bit, weaker craters start to die, with activity increasingly concentrated in main craters. Occasionally it overdoes it, and new rifts will reopen, but the long-term trend is down, until just one main crater is left. This will (in this sort of area) erupt for a couple months.
Near the crater, the lava flows can be dozens of meters thick. Further out, they're usually a few to a dozen meters thick (sloped = thinner). But they push outwards with incredible force - a Bulldozer of the Gods.
In the early phases, most lava flows across the surface, in spectacular lava rivers. As time goes on, and the destinations get further away, more flows under the crust in lava tubes. These can reach great distances - the limit is more "where exists room to deposit this?"
BREAKING NEWS: The new law is being passed by the House of Representatives in the Senate and the Senate this wwwww and the Senate is not in session yet and the Senate has yet to vote on it yet so I don’t know what to expect from it but I will be voting for it in the next few days and I will be in th
Though I'd agree most of the value is in parts that are ideological or vanity rather than practical, unless you expect to get banned by the main Bluesky instance or expect Bluesky the company to die while the network survives.
This is the eruption map as of this afternoon, with an assessed area of 3,7km² (the first eruption, at Fagradalsfjall, only did about 5km² in nearly half a year of erupting). Reports are that the northern vents are stronger, which we can all hope for, given the greater distance to infrastructure.
RÚV saying larger steam plumes are down to the magma hitting more groundwater. As has been usual with the previous eruptions, the fissure is now consolidating into a few vents, rather than the earlier 'curtain of fire'.
Spotted a helicopter on the webcam, so hopefully we'll get more info soon.
It is. Since it became open a lot of the people "here" are just cross-posting so basically this IS Twitter. Or Twitter Lite, what have you. Regardless expect to see the safe space days end, sorry to say this.
Here is where we expect December to end up based on the first 12 days of the month for which data are currently available in the JRA-55 reanalysis product. It is very likely to be the warmest in this dataset, and across all datasets since records began in the mid-1800s:
This is the eruption map as of yesterday evening, with an assessed area of 3,7km² (the first eruption, at Fagradalsfjall, only did about 5km² in nearly half a year of erupting). Reports are that the northern vents are stronger, which we can all hope for, given the greater distance to infrastructure.
yeah this is the kind of thing you see in "most people are going to buy this to ~*~experience~*~ it rather than to use it long term, and we want to sell as many as possible instead of selling a few and having each passed between five people in the first year" type of cars
I expect a lot of politicians are going to eulogize Kissinger over the next few days and they will be insensitive to his involvement in numerous atrocities during the 1970s, and tbh I'm not gonna get that worked up about it
Go search “old jello recipes” and do an image search. You’ll get images from the early days of supermarkets when the question of, “What do we do with this expanded variety of available foods?” was to just stick it in Jello.
We’re not very good at ‘weather’ in this country are we? The whole train service in the south east has ground to a halt & some idiot not a million miles from here is attempting to get back to London in the middle of it all! D’oh! (is it too early to go to the pub?)
