Experts warn that Taal volcano may explode! Can volcanic eruption ease global warming?

Tul Volcano Luzon, about 60 kilometers south of Manila, Philippines, erupted on Sunday! According to the Philippines Institute of Volcanic Seismology, a small-scale eruption occurred at about 1 pm local time on the 12th.The eruption was mainly steam and volcanic ash, and the eruption reached about 100 meters. The Philippine authorities have ordered the residents of three nearby towns to evacuate, and the evacuation plan has begun, with a scale of up to 200,000 people.

Tul Volcano Eruption, Luzon

Expert warning: fear of explosive eruption

From the first 12 hours inside, the level has been upgraded from the first level to the fourth level. The Philippine Volcano Earthquake Research Institute warns that explosive eruption may occur in the next few hours to days! The volcanic activity is escalatedVery fast, huge volcanic ash plumes have appeared 10 to 14 kilometers above the crater, and they have reached "Far to Quezon City"!

Major volcano in the Philippines

What kind of ghost is Taal? Has it erupted in history?

It is the shortest active volcano in the world. It is located in the center of the beautiful Lake Taal in Luzon, Philippines, with a height of only 200 meters. But don't underestimate its shortness, its energy is not small, Taal said that the mountain is the worldOne of the most frequent volcanic eruptions on the planet, erected in 1965, 1970, and 1976. The volcanic ash that erupted in 1976 was as high as 1500 meters.

Taer volcano is more interesting. After the crater stopped erupting, a large lake accumulated. The second eruption formed a crater and a small volcano, so the famous Taal mother and child volcano came this way! Taal volcanoThere have been several major eruptions in history, of which the 1754 lasted 200 days. By August 1808, another major eruption occurred. As of January 12, 2020, the last eruption of the main crater occurred in 1911. The volcanoThe bottom of the mouth disappeared, forming the current lake! A new crater was born in the huge eruption in 1965, called Mount Tabaro.

Among them, the eruption on January 30, 1911 was the worst casualty in the recent eruption. The volcanic eruption has about 70 million to 80 million cubic meters, and the volcanic ash covers an area of ​​more than 2000 square kilometers, with casualties.More than 1500 people, including 1335 killed!

Before the crater of Taal volcano erupted in 1911, there was a volcanic cone in the center and a lake at the bottom of the crater.

Recent series of eruption activities occurred in 1965-1977, resulting in hundreds of deaths!

Of course, the latest volcanic eruption of Taal Volcano occurred on the afternoon of January 12, 2020. There is a lesson from the previous heavy casualties. Therefore, the Philippine authorities attach great importance to this matter. The evacuation scale is as high as 200,000.There is a previous record!

Can Taal eruption alleviate global warming?

A lot of friends who know history know that from 1600 to the beginning of the 20th century, there was an unusually cold climate called the Ming and Qing glacial periods. Of course, there are two characteristics during the same period. One is that the solar activity has decreased sharply, even for many years.It's all zero, the sun's face is clean! Another feature is that since the last thousand years, large-scale volcanic eruption has affected the solar radiation to reach the ground. Let's do a simple analysis below!

Spot activity from 1600 to 1750 is the minimum period

Edward Monde counts this cycle, so it is called Monde minima, and during the same period, the coldest weather in China during the Ming and Qing dynasties can indeed match this time, or can be roughly consistent! And the other is historyThe famous volcanic eruption, the most notable one is a volcanic eruption!

Volcanic eruption related to the Little Ice Age

We want to introduce the Peruvian Yuenaptina volcano that occurred in 1600, which is a complex volcano located in the Moquegua region in southern Peru. It is only 80 kilometers from Arequipa, the second largest city in Chile.It is part of the Andes, at an altitude of 4850 meters.

A catastrophic volcanic eruption occurred on February 19, 1600. This is the most violent volcanic eruption in South American history, and 30 cubic kilometers of hot volcanic ash and volcanic debris flow erupted at Mount Enatina.Then they rushed all the way to the Pacific Ocean 120 kilometers away, destroying countless villages along the way! The volcano Enaputina directly caused 1500 deaths, and the damage caused was gradually restored after 150 years!

A large amount of volcanic ash ejected from Mount Enaptina entered the atmospheric cycle, affecting the earth for several years, and even leading to a famine in Russia for tens of thousands of kilometers for three consecutive years!The impact is global. The winter of 1601 was the coldest winter in nearly 6 centuries. This is also an important reason for the famine in Russia! Both Estonia and Latvia in Europe ushered in extremely cold winters, and even lower latitudes in China were rare.Peach blossoms open late!

Compared with the 30 cubic kilometers of volcanic ash erupted from Mount Enapitina, the largest eruption in Taal volcano history is only 80 million cubic meters, which is not at the same level, but if Taal volcano occurred in EgyptAccording to the current population density in the Philippines, the eruption of Naputina volcano is far more than 1,500, because the scale of evacuation by the Philippine authorities is not enough!

Also affected by volcanic ash suspended particles, the solar radiation obtained in the northern hemisphere will be greatly reduced, which greatly reduces the greenhouse effect. It seems to be a good thing from another perspective? Of course, don't forget that there will be a lot of sulfide in the volcanic eruption.With carbon dioxide entering the atmosphere, future acid rain will destroy a lot of vegetation and even reduce crop yields. Is this a good thing?

Taur eruption, what should we do?

In fact, what we want to say is not to add confusion to the Philippines. Many friends would think that the historical eruption of Taal volcano is not large, and may even go to watch the volcanic eruption. This is not a happy event, because the future eruption trend of Taal volcanoIt is impossible to predict that if the scale expands, volcanic ash will affect Manila International Airport flights, but it has already been affected! Then 100% will be detained, basically waiting for the crazy state of being called every day should not be called!

It looks very poetic, doesn't it?

You must know if the ash is flying and killing this stalk. If you want to see the volcano, go to Hawaii. This is an active volcano that only emits magma. The volcano of Taal is unknown, the eruption prospect is unknown, and the Sanwu volcano of unknown scale is still hidden.It ’s safer to watch live!
