    SUPERVOLCANO ERUPTION WARNING: CAMPI FLEGREI BENEATH NAPLES IN ITALY COULD ERUPT CATASTROPHICALLY, EXPERTS SAY

    JANUARY 3, 2017
    JohnThomas Didymus
    Scientists have raised the alarm that Campi Flegrei, a massive supervolcano situated beneath the metropolitan area of Naples on the coast of southern Italy, is showing disturbing signs of renewed activity and that it could be on the brink of erupting catastrophically.


    A major eruption of Campi Flegrei could prove deadly because the supervolcano is situated under one of Italy’s most densely populated urban areas, CNBC reports experts warned. The Naples metropolitan area also ranks among the most densely populated areas in the world, with an urban core population estimated at more than 3 million.

    According to scientists, a major eruption of Campi Flegrei (“burning fields”) could have more than just local or regional impact. The supervolcano, with a 12-kilometer caldera, caused one of the biggest volcanic eruptions in Europe in the last 200,000 years when a major eruption 39,000 years ago triggered a “volcanic winter.” Some experts believe that the eruption might have caused a major global extinction event, including the extinction of Neanderthals.

    It is believed that other major eruptions of Campi Flegrei occurred 35,000 and 12,000 years ago. The last eruption that occurred in 1538 was comparatively minor, although it lasted eight days and spewed up enough material to create a new mountain called Monte Nuova.

    The Italian volcanologist Giuseppe De Natale told Reuters in 2012 that Campi Flegrei is one of the few supervolcanoes in the world that “can give rise [ to eruptions] that can have global catastrophic effects comparable to major meteorite impacts.”

    According to a team of Italian and French experts, in a study published on December 20, 2016, in the journal Nature Communications, measurements show that magma beneath the surface at Campi Flegrei is approaching a critical pressure point called the “critical degassing pressure” (CDP). This means that the rate of accumulation of vast volumes of gasses below the surface is accelerating and that sudden release of the gasses could lead to rock failure and the eruption of the supervolcano.

    “Hydrothermal rocks, if heated, can ultimately lose their mechanical resistance, causing acceleration towards critical conditions.”

    “We propose that magma could be approaching the CDP at Campi Flegrei, a volcano in the metropolitan area of Naples.”
    Researchers first detected signs of a reawakening of the long-silent supervolcano in the 1950s, following minor seismic activity and hydrothermal degassing at the site. The activity stopped after the year 2000 but resumed in 2005, with significant acceleration of build-up of pressure below the surface. The increased activity at Campi Flegrei forced scientists to alert the authorities and warn that the ongoing uplift could trigger a major eruption.

    Researchers raised the alert level from Green to Yellow in 2012, indicating that Campi Flegrei had gone from “quiet” to a level of activity requiring constant scientific monitoring, according to the Washington Post. Scientists renewed the warning recently after noticing further significant acceleration of uplift activity that caused ground deformation around the supervolcano.

    According to researchers, the unpredictability of the uplift activity means that it’s hard to say when an eruption would occur.

    “Volcanology is not a precise science. We have many uncertainties and long-term previsions are at the moment not possible!”

    “It is not clear whether this unrest will culminate in an eruption and if it does over what timescale this will occur.”

    But according to Giovanni Chiodini, the Italian expert who led the study, the volcano appears to be approaching a critical pressure point at which magma accumulating below the surface could lead to a major explosion. He warned that the high population density of the area around Campi Flegrei means that a major eruption of the supervolcano could be catastrophic regarding human lives. He emphasized that the situation was urgent and that the authorities need to focus efforts on monitoring and studying the volcano to improve predictive capability.

    The Italian authorities are also concerned about the risk of the eruption of the nearby Mount Vesuvius. An eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. wiped out Pompeii and neighboring settlements. Mount Vesuvius last erupted in 1944. Experts say that the volcano goes through a 20-year eruption cycle. This means that the volcano is overdue for another major eruption.

    The latest warning comes after Italy was hit by several earthquakes. A magnitude-6.6 quake, the strongest in nearly four decades, hit the country last October. Italy also experienced a magnitude 6.2 earthquake last August. About 300 people died in the quake that hit the town of Amatrice, in the province of Rieti in northern Lazio, central Italy, according to the Inquisitr.

    Early in November, central Italy was hit by a magnitude-5.0 quake that damaged buildings and monuments.

    Certainly if Campi Flegrei (“burning fields”) erupts catastrophically, the collapsing Italian banks and the Italian bank runs will be covered up most completely, like Pompeii was covered up.

  • Perhaps that is why the dried blood of Saint Januarius failed to liquefy in Italy. "If the miracle of liquefaction fails to occur, it can herald disaster for the coming months and years".
    If anyone says that true and natural water is not necessary for baptism and thus twists into some metaphor the words of our Lord Jesus Christ" Unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Spirit" (Jn 3:5) let him be anathema.

    I wonder if any Italians are thinking about that?

    One thing's for sure:  our scientific instruments are a lot more sensitive these days than they have been in the past, and you can be sure geologists and seismologists in Italy are paying extra close attention to whatever clues they can find. This will perhaps be the best yet recorded prelude to a large eruption, for study after the fact, if it happens.

    Italian earthquake culture goes way back. They are the guys who developed the first system of rating the severity of earthquakes.  It might seem silly by today's standards, but the Mercalli system is over 100 years old, before Richter and the seismograph (which was the first attempt to record the WORK done by the "love wave" or destructive force of any earthquake). According to the Mercalli scale, a quake is called a 1, or a 2, or a 3, or a 4 or up to a 10. But guess how they determine the number??

    Answer:  they go around in the area of the quake and ask survivors, "On a scale of 1 to 5, how strong was this earthquake?" They average the replies, and that's the Mercalli number.
    Kind of like popular demand. The scale has been updated over the years and now uses Roman Numerals (surprise!) up to XII for the most severe.

    Giuseppe Mercalli, who first developed the scale, was a Catholic priest and volcanologist.

  • There are not that many religious thinking people whom are baptized Catholics
    that are relating to the dried blood of Saint Januarius failed to liquefy portending
    a disaster caused by the irreligious sinfulness of the majority of the
    Italian people and their masonic government.
    When the disaster happens is when the people cry to God. Perhaps
    mostly blasphemy and  cussing. It will them be to late.

    If this happened, it would be all part of Elites plan. They can create disasters', even using nukes,  to cover up the collapsing Italian banks.

  • Report: Supervolcano that could kill millions of Europeans ready to blow

    naturalnews.com

    A European supervolcano that erupted two thousand years ago is showing signs of new activity near Italy. When the volcano erupted two thousand years ago, an estimated 1,500 people near the Roman city of Pompeii were smothered in bouts of lava and dark clouds of ash. Mount Vesuvius has lain dormant for far too long. According to experts, it’s beginning to show signs of “reawakening.” If it were to go today, hundreds of thousands, possibly millions of people would be affected. The name of the supervolcano today is Campi Flegrei. It waits under Naples in Italy. If it went off, black ash clouds could block out the sun for months.

    Dr. Luca De Siena is a Geophysics professor at the University of Aberdeen. He has been leading research on the supervolcano and following it’s activity. The last time Campi Flegrei erupted was in 1538. This was a small eruption event. After eight days of spewing lava and billowing out black clouds, a new mountain, Monte Nuovo, was formed. New activity reported in the area suggests that another small eruption could be up and coming. There’s also the threat of a big event, like the one that occurred two thousand years ago during Roman times.

    “In case of a big one, it could affect our chances to live in Europe, immediately killing hundreds of thousands if not millions,” warns Dr. Luca De Siena.

  • They need to evacuate right now and should have been already since last year. Not everyone in the area could get away safely once the volcano erupts, as I even learned from a documentary about Mt. Vesuvius and Pompeii several years ago. I would not be surprised if Rome got affected in some way too.

    SUPERVOLCANO ERUPTION WARNING: CAMPI FLEGREI BENEATH NAPLES IN ITALY COULD ERUPT CATASTROPHICALLY, EXPERTS SAY
    JANUARY 3, 2017
    JohnThomas Didymus

    I know well that authors of articles often do not  write the corresponding headlines, but the one above is worthless, by being a tautology
    • , i.e.: If a volcano can't "ERUPT CATASTROPHICALLY",  then it ain't a "SUPERVOLCANO"!

      Quote from: inquisitr.com via Kephapaulos (Jan 3, 2017, 10:26 pm)
      According to researchers, the unpredictability of the uplift activity means that it’s hard to say when an eruption would occur.

      Ah, yes: "researchers" who are repeatedly left unnamed, repeatedly providing examples of slipshod "journalism" in this article.

      Quote from: inquisitr.com via Kephapaulos (Jan 3, 2017, 10:26 pm)
      Researchers raised the alert level from Green to Yellow in 2012, indicating that Campi Flegrei had gone from “quiet” to a level of activity requiring constant scientific monitoring, according to the Washington Post.   Scientists renewed the warning recently after noticing further significant acceleration of uplift activity that caused ground deformation around the supervolcano.  According to researchers, the unpredictability of the uplift activity means that it’s hard to say when an eruption would occur. “Volcanology is not a precise science.  We have many uncertainties and long-term  previsions [forecasts] are at the moment not possible!”

      “It is not clear whether this unrest will culminate in an eruption and if it does over what timescale this will occur.”

      Quotes from which researchers, exactly?   The article is presenting an alarming warning that might justify a near-future evacuation of at least "an urban core population estimated at more than 3 million".   Judging from the Latinate "previsions" substituted for the correct English (from Germanic) "forecasts", it seems a safe guess that that quote is from a native speaker of a Romance language, but in Italy, that's hardly a useful distinguishing characteristic.  I am inclined to agree with those unattributed quotes in my extract immediately above, but it's sloppy reporting or sloppy copy-editing not to identify the sources of the quotes, and that failure discredits both the author and whomever carries such reporting.

      Perhaps not all that different from the self-indulgent laziness or sloppiness exemplified by the failure to edit out 2 sets of captions that are unaccompanied by their pictures (1 set identified above as struck-through bright red), thus confusingly interrupting the text of the article posted in this CathInfo topic.  Don't the CathInfo members reading your posting deserve better than that?

      -------
      Note #:
      Somewhat like the question intended only as a rhetorical joke: "Is the pope Catholic?"  Until recently, nearly all readers would've been confident that if a man ain't a faithfully Catholic cleric, he can't be the pope.  Sigh.

  • I'm sorry I failed to take out those picture captions. It did not come to mind for me to take those out.

    Nevertheless, earthquakes can be a prelude to a volcanic eruption, and it does not hurt to be on watch for that for those who live in an area that has had eruptions in the past.
