Thanks to Marvin's ancient entry, it is now safe for me to post my favourite volcano, Popocatépetl , Aztec for "smoking mountain", or Popo for short.

This site details its recent activity.

Why do I like it so much ? we use it as a vocal warm up when singing, combined with the phrase "copper-plated-kettle", so those Aztecs must have had really good lip control.

Since I obviously need to practice putting in links, here is live footage of Kilauea and here is a cam with a daily update of the activity.

Oh please, oh please, oh please.

In case those don't work, here is another live action volcano:

Ngauruhoe caught in the act!

Well, OK, but I've climbed it and peared down into the crater, so it seemed like a good choice. Actually it hasn't erupted since 1976.


Looks like Ruapehu right next door (which I've also climbed) is a bit more active at the moment, having erupted in 1996 according to the link above. But I'll leave that for someone else.

Reventador, Ecuador.

First read as Rentador (as in Rent-A-Door), and thought someone had just picked up on an advertising opportunity. But hey, is erupting away. Get your exploding doors here. Or there, rather, seeing as it's in Ecuador. Goodness I waffle on! Jolly good.

This link shows you what to do if you live near a volcano.

This one is about creating one in the comfort of your own home.

And here is a cake.

I'm surprised nobody has yet gone for Krakatoa which erupted famously in Auguist 1983 but is apparently still going (see subsequent volcanism, about three quarters of the way down the page). Perhaps you couldn't find it as it is, in fact, west of Java.

Admirable, I'm sure! But...

[oneupmanship] Have you descended into the very bowels of a volcano? Yes, my friends, this stalwart fellow defied the fates by climbing approximately 2,000ft down a lava tube into the base of Mount St. Helens (6 years before it erupted). Imagine, if you will, a cave with the appearance of a corrugated intestine, 20ft in diameter, descending at an angle of about 10 degrees. Lava tubes are created by lava traveling beneath the surface of another lava flow and then draining as the surrounding magma cools.

Ever downward we walked, the walls of the cave reflecting the dim yellow light of our flashlights. The stink of sulfur and urine stinging the nose, as we stepped over beer cans and Cheetos bags. Every step we progressed deeper and deeper into the beast as the air grew more hot and foul. Finally, the heat became so oppressive and the walls so close with claustrophobia, that we had to turn back.

When we escaped into daylight, fresh air never tasted so good.

I have walked in the bowels of the monster and lived to tell the tale. [Razz] [Cool]

Ah, but Quizmaster said:

Qualification is dependent upon you choosing a volcano that has erupted more recently than the one chosen by just one other competitor.

Of course, if somebody forgets to post then you are through just by naming a volcano.

N.B. I need a link to the webpage that specifies the date of the last eruption of your chosen volcano.

So we have to find / choose / name the volcano, and provide a website which says when it erupted.

Now, if you were to get your beloved (o.n.o.) to build a simple volcano, then you were to find it, choose it and name it (presumably after our glorious Quizmaster), then I think you'd be safe.

Oh, and take some photos with the date on and post them on the web, then link to it.

In fact, the wise quizmaster has provided us with a most excellent allegory of the Most Holy Trinity.

God the Father chooses us before the beginning of time.
God the Son, the Good Shepherd finds us and brings us home.
God the Holy Spirit causes us to be adopted as God's children, so welcoming us into his family and giving us a new name.

He then calls us to go out and make links between Christ and the world.

Praise be to God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.

True, however on a brinksmanship front, Quizmaster's entry last erupted over 300 million years before yours did.

One of the fascinating things on Ruapehu was the snowbanks: in some areas they had holes in them, with a dark rock at the bottom of each. In other places they had pillars of snow sticking up, with a dark rock perched on top.

The difference, of course, was the type of rock. Heavy types of lava absorbed enough heat from the sun that they would melt down into the snow. Lighter types like pumice don't hold or conduct heat very well, so would sit on top of the snow and shade that under them from the sun, so it remained while the rest of the snowbank melted around it.

For those who want to keep track of the current status of Mt. Saint Helens, whose steam and ash plumes are within view of several shipmates (and perhaps an inspiration to a particular host?)

Although it is currently active, it hasn't yet been selected for this competition, either.

Out of where? The volcano or the game?
Please don't go (if it's the game we're talking about). If it's the erruption, then that is a sound thing to do. Don't leave us!

As for me, I'm going for the obvious Mount St Helena as it has been pointed out that it hasn't been picked yet. [Big Grin]

Last erruption - 1980. That should do it.

[edit - just scrolled up to see that someone had suggested to go for the volcano which I've picked. Post edited in light of reading said information]

Anne, I'm sure that was just an accidental typo in the name of Mount St. Helens. Of course, the town of St. Helens is in a different state, and the town of St. Helena is in yet another.

The aptly named Novarupta, although it's ratherlike the name 'Newbridge' or 'Newport' - after a few years, it stops seeming so new!

I believe that your link to Mt. St. Helen's was incorrect...it last erupted, October 2004.

I was at Mt. St. Helens a couple of weeks ago, and though it wasn't an eruption, there was a little bit of smoke coming out of that crater, as can be seen here

Not quite as high pitched as my sonar squeal. Volcanos have errupted as a result! [Razz]

It all depends on your definition of an eruption. The US Geological Society website linked above implies that there is an ongoing eruption:

quote:
Thursday, September 15, 2005 9:15 a.m. PDT (1615 UTC)

MOUNT ST. HELENS UPDATE

Current status is Volcano Advisory (Alert Level 2); aviation color code ORANGE: Growth of the new lava dome inside the crater of Mount St. Helens continues, accompanied by low rates of seismicity, low emissions of steam and volcanic gases, and minor production of ash. During such eruptions, changes in the level of activity can occur over days to months.

So eruption can mean general volcanic activity (happening at present), visible releases of steam and/or ash (not uncommon), or explosion (1980). As a matter of interest (especially to those who live in the area), the Cascade volcanos tend to have massive explosions rather than just spewing out red hot lava. (At least in recent geologic history.) Mt. Mazama is a good example - what is left of the mountian is now the home of Crater Lake.

Thanks Carex...I brought up the October date because my husband flew over Mt. St. Helens last October and took some really cool pictures of the eruption. And under the definition given in your post my volcano is still "erupting" too. [Smile]
