Images of the Nabro eruption (updated) 22 June 2011Posted by admin in Africa, Eritrea, eruptions, Nabro, NASA Earth Observatory.
Just a quick post to draw your attention to some images of the Nabro eruption in Eritrea.
Many thanks to Martin Rey, who left a comment at an earlier post giving a link to some screen captures he obtained from local TV station Eri.TV of the Nabro eruption. The pictures seem to show the plume from ground level, lava flows, vegetation on fire, and relief/evacuation operations. Two are reproduced above: the whole set of 23 can be found here: http://picasaweb.google.com/triart3d/NABRO
UPDATE. And here’s the video itself at earthquake-report.com’s cumulative and now immensely long posting on the Nabro eruption, and at YouTube. Chris Rowan talks about the seismic aspect of the eruption at Highly Allocthonous in a very illuminating post on Seismo-volcanism in Eritrea. And for analysis and discussion of what Nabro is up to (and might get up to in the future), check out Erik’s comprehensive and enlightening new post at Eruptions: Speculating on the 2011 Nabro eruption in Eritrea.
And there’s a fascinating picture of a lava flow from Nabro at the NASA Earth Observatory (above), captured by ASTER on the Terra satellite: Eruption at Nabro volcano.
More on Nabro later, time permitting.
