The satellite captured a surprising new image of an intensifying volcanic eruption on Spain-owned island of La Palma when a new stream of lava spilled over the weekend.
European earth observation satellite A glimpse of Sentinel-2 Sunday of a new lava flow erupting from a fiery volcano after a partial collapse of a conical crater formed since the start of the September 19 eruption. The collapse is up to 2,264 degrees Fahrenheit (1,240 degrees Celsius) hot lava spilling in a new direction. A powerful, sizzling stream was soon formed north of the original lava river, finding downhill paths towards the coast and threatening settlements that had previously escaped the collapse of hell.
according to volcanodiscovery.comThe northern stream is much faster than the original stream, traveling at 1,640-2,300 feet per hour (500-700 meters per hour) and to sea on Sunday (October 10), just before 11:00 pm local time. It has arrived.
And according to Data released by the European Union Copernicus Emergency Surveillance Service On Saturday (October 9th), at least 1,186 buildings have been robbed by scorching lava and now cover nearly two square miles (5 square kilometers) of land.team Said on twitter Estimates could not be updated on Sunday (October 10) because clouds obstructed the satellite’s view. The European Space Agency (ESA), which operates the sentinel satellite on behalf of the EU, said the neighborhood of Todoke, part of the Los Janos de Aridan municipality southwest of the island, is in imminent danger. .. In the statement..
Environmental monitoring service Adam platformProcessing Copernicus data tweeted on Monday that the sulfur dioxide plume from a volcano that crossed the Atlantic Ocean and reached the Caribbean Sea at the end of last week had almost disappeared. Currently, most volcanic releases are heading east in North Africa.
U.S. weather forecast satellite GOES East captured thermal properties Infrared imaging equipment is used to analyze the intensification of eruptions from orbits 22,000 miles (36,000 km) from Earth.
Last week, the astronaut International Space Station An impressive image that captures the smoke erupting from a volcano and the ash eruption from an angle creates a three-dimensional effect. This image shows a gray plume rising above the white clouds over a mountain island.
The plume is now reaching an altitude of 2 miles (3 km), causing intermittent disruption to local air traffic and deteriorating air quality. The eruption was not active enough, but it could inject large amounts of dust into the stratosphere and have long-term effects on weather and climate. NASA said in a statement..
According to Spanish airport officials, ash and dust on the runway forced La Palma officials to close the island’s airport. AENA.. This is the second time the airport has been closed due to ash deposits since the eruption began.
Scientists are worried that the first eruption of Cumbre Vieja in 50 years may last for months.
