With this recent slight uptick in volcanic activity the research team is keeping a close eye on volcanoes for more eruptions. Whirled publishing sent us a link to a very important image, which shows the ocean temperatures heating up:
With so much heat beneath the worlds oceans, obviously volcanic activity will remain high. Let’s take a look at volcanoes that could be on the verge of eruption.
Askja, Iceland – Nearby the very active bardarbunga volcano, the Askja summit experienced a strong magnitude 5.0 earthquake highlighted in white. The interesting thing to note about the Iceland volcano is that the activity is widespread in the area.
