Volcanos

Roundup of Global Volcanic Activity:

Stromboli (Eolian Islands, Italy): Recently discovered dinosaur footprints in volcanic ash layers on a remote island volcano challenge the widely accepted theory that dinosaurs got extinct 65 million years ago. Some of them might have survived for much longer.

Kilauea (Hawai’i): No significant changes in Kilaueas eruption activity over the past week – although the lava lake rose slightly to about 46m (151ft) below the floor of Halema`uma`u crater.

The northeast spatter cone complex continued to feed the Kahauale`a 2 lava flow, though this flow is still not legally or safely accessible. Smoke plumes from forest fires during the day and glowing spots at night confirm that the flow remains active on the East Rift Zone of Kilauea.
