What is occurring? They have the appearance of small shields. 2014. Thanks to the rotation of the West Coast- the Seven Davils of Idaho have a goodly chunk of Wrangellia Terraine in them. Wrangell has several active fumarolic areas in its summit caldera. To be “weathered-in” at the South eastern Alaska coastal town of Wrangell is an experience with frontier mentality, for fishing and drinking are the principal pursuits of the pop ulace. The field includes the four highest volcanoes in the United States, Mount Bona, Mount Blackburn, Mount Sanford, and Mount Churchill, all of which exceed 15,000 ft (4,600 m) in elevation. WRANGELL LINKS. No worries. Page 8 talks about the drastic increasing chance of ‘compound events’. 1: summit of Mount Churchill; 2: basin presumably caused by the white-ash eruptions; 3: location of an old dacite lava flow. The one you just read is about 2500 words. He does videos. Elias National Park and Preserve within Alaska . just saying there are a lot of excellent scientists in my religion….. they don’t have to be exclusive of each other. It formed as a result of subduction of the Pacific Plate beneath the North American Plate at the easternmost end of the Aleutian Trench. It is significantly lower than the other peaks, at a measly 3,661 meters, but this is not for want of trying. Locally, however, strata of the same age have been affected by a late pulse of tectonism, during which they were faulted, contorted into tight symmetrical folds, or overridden by pre-Cenozoic baserocks along southwesterly dipping thrust faults. Mount Wrangell (elev. n Mount Wrangell a mountain in S Alaska, in the W Wrangell Mountains. There is a river of about this name near Wrangell, and therefore this eruption was subsequently identified as Mount Wrangell. Wrangell reported activity. Sep 15, 2016 - Explore Tom Snyder's board "Wrangell - St. Elias NP" on Pinterest. More than almost any other volcano on Earth. Mount, an active volcano in SE Alaska, in the Wrangell Mountains. Even as recent as 15 years ago, they were by and large in favour of caring for the environment, not destroying it. If you center the interactive map on the following website on a city like Birmingham (UK), or Oxford, or Dusseldorf, or Kansas City; you can get an idea of the scale of the current Australian bush fires. The end of the video footage shows two distinct dark areas on the rim that is normally snow-covered. Tephra found in Greenland’s ice has given us a precise date: this eruption happened in the winter of AD 853 (a date 50 years earlier is also in the literature but is now out of date). Very interesting if you can get your hands on it. Wrangell — Original name in latin Wrangell Name in other language WRG State code US Continent/City America/Sitka longitude 56.47083 latitude 132.37667 altitude 26 Population 2369 Date 2011 05 14 … But my god. 4,317 m) is the youngest and only active volcano in the Oligocene to Holocene-aged Wrangell volcanic field that extends from beyond the Alaska-Yukon border northwest through the Wrangell Mountains to the Copper River Basin. Fortunately we have a couple hundred years hopefully till the next 1ky bond solar cooling and the catastrophic cooling of the little ice age we are recovering from seems to have been due to the conjunction of the 2.4k bray solar cycle and a 1.5k oceanic cycle. The eastern lobe covering a part of Canada came later, in an eruption several times larger than the first one. 14,006 ft. (4269 m). 2014, Geosphere, 10, 1020-1042. Nice to know that other folks appreciate AvE! Mount Drum is 3,661 m (12,010 ft) high and was active between approximately 700,000 and 240,000 years ago. Only the young Mount Wrangell still shows its shield-like form; the other, commonly older volcanoes have had much of their original form removed by glacial and other erosional processes, such as Rabbit Mountain and Felsite Peak, which are now eroded to form an outcrop. The precise depth depends on the temperature and how wet the subducted rock is. I think 2019 saw an unusual area of fires across the world, considering also the fires in the Brazil, Bolivia, Siberia, Indonesia… That puts extra CO2 into the atmosphere, a classical positive feedback loop. Mount Wrangell, in Ahtna K’ełt’aeni or K’ełedi when erupting, is a massive shield volcano located in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve in southeastern Alaska, United States. And bye bye pancake lava dome blasted away. but nothing prepared me for looking UP a these massive giants… that same trip I fortunate to get Denali in a good photo-cloud free.. The possibility exists that these quakes opened up pathways for underground hot water. At that distance, the ‘hundreds of feet’ corresponds to 0.1 degree, a fifth of the diameter of the full Moon: it is hard to see how he could have seen such detail as the ‘immense stones’. The last major eruption of the volcano occurred in 1900, although steam is a common sight above the massive peak. The volcanoes all grow as a shield, and develop a caldera at the end of their evolution. Some smaller peaks are not included, and it is conceivable that some further, minor eruption centres were buried under the developing shields. 5426M, so that was a big explosion covered at least 2/3 of the cone. Elias National Park and Preserve within Alaska. A bit in the Hell’s canyon area too..-H/T Nick Zentner Central Washington University.. i don’t have time to look it up on You Tube.. The 1884/5 eruption is also considered unconfirmed. If you study paleoclimatology then you realise cold is the enemy. The calderas collapse to over a kilometer in depth, but much of this is filed in with basaltic flows which probably come from the ring fault. All the mountains here are volcanic, and almost all are impressively high. It looks like the cone in the lake has itself developed a crater lake. Is it possible that the lava fields that buried the crater were in part caused by the impact? The current Mount Drum is only one side of the original mountain; the other side is Snider Peak. Does not serve us as a species. It have erupted ”large eruptions” 33 times since 1840. Indeed Mauna Loa is loosing the Hotspot to Kilauea and Loihi. However, Grewink himself assigns it to the Andreanof Islands, and it is now usually assumed to refer to Great Sitkin. Of course Pleistocene rocks are buried under miles of lava flow rock now .. Mauna Loa and Kilauea are alternating dominance over the hotspot, for example Mauna Loa was dominant from 1840 to 1950 when it remained frequently active and very productive. The Pacific plate subducts along the entire Aleutian arc, but volcanic activity is not the same everywhere. These are the main volcanoes of the Wrangell Volcanics. The current long dormancy has some obvious reasons, first that the 1984 eruption reduced pressure significantly visible as a decrease in caldera distance, while the 1975 eruption had a comparatively small effect. There is westward drift of the activity over time, and perhaps a new volcano will develop where the mud volcanoes are located. Especially considering that we are in the maxima of a hotspot activity and it has been 5 years since last eruption. Impressive indeed Mount Wrangell [rang-guhl] was named after Russian Admiral Ferdinand von Wrangel (or Wrangell), governor of Russian America from 1830 to 1836. The two pyroclastic flows together amounted to a 50km3 eruption. Fascinating geology. Add your article. WTF! And now a star in Iceland. The Wrangell and adjacent Elias Mountains. 1000 words can make a short snappy post, 3000 words is quite long, 6000 words is epic. These were two serious eruptions; the second eruption was large enough to cause the local population to migrate south and temporarily vacate the region. It began with a granite intrusion 5 million years ago, which developed into volcanic eruptions a million years later. The 1 meter deep pits at their peaks produce warm muddy water and methane gas. LOCALS and natives often think climbing is pointless and perverse. Where the magma goes is less clear! It too is a large shield volcano, build up by andesitic eruptions. I did not pick this video for any specific reason. That is the current level of discussion: it is about model differences at the 10% level. As for the current Australian fires, the indigenous owners used to burn twice this area every year, thats the only way that you can prevent fire here, reduce the fuel load. Wrangell Volcanic Field lies within the Wrangell Mountains of Alaska, but the field also extends eastwards into the neighboring Saint Elias Mountains Mount Wran. The location of Wrangell–St. Hey, its Alaska. Drum. Ref the Andesite… the whole area is accretionary. It was built by a series of large lava flows from 600,000 to 200,000 years ago. The stratovolcanoof Mount Churchillhas had the largest recent eruptions, with two large-magnitude explosive eruptions in the last 2,000 years that blanketed most of the Yukon with volcanic ash(the White River Ash). At that time, indeed, there were scientists arguing on both sides. Wrangell was founded by Russians as one of the oldest non-Native settlements in Alaska. It lost almost 90% of its ice between 1965 and 1984, at a time when the other craters showed no change in ice cover. The volcano is a very large (900 km3) broad shield containing an ice-filled, nonexplosive, collapse caldera measuring 3.2 by 5.6 kilometers. That’s just, perhaps, maybe a little too authoritarian! The arc of volcanoes ends west of Anchorage. http://www.bom.gov.au/state-of-the-climate/State-of-the-Climate-2018.pdf. The magma is basaltic although there are differences from normal subduction zones. The Canadian portion of the field is dominated by scattered remnants of upper Cenozoic subaerial lavas and pyroclastic rocks. These poor folks can’t catch a break. Best! Where all is not revealed. every little twig is covered in frost and i’m hibernating till it warms a little. In spite of frequent puffs of steam, geologists tell us that Wrangell is showing no signs of erupting any time soon. See more ideas about wrangell, alaska, national parks. 1995, USGS Bulletin 2072 https://pubs.usgs.gov/bul/2072/report.pdf. It was a typical Wrangell winter, as is evident from his journal: ‘Clear but very cold the floor of my cabin is frose two foot from the fire and I thought I had made it almost air tight so you see I am in no danger of melting with the heat.’ (www.avo.alaska.edu). No matter how long we drove we seemed to be standing still and as the hours went by it was rather disconcerting. It is also important that Mauna Loa currently has a very low supply, recent inflation is far slower than inflation before the 1975 eruption. Mexico. Along the caldera rim are three further smaller craters, imaginatively called: Mount Wrangell Crater, North Crater, and East Crater. They have said that for years it has been impossible to do this because it was too hot and dry to do this safely at any time. That leaves us with the 1900 eruption. The Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) receives several reports per year from pilots and local residents who observe larger than normal steam clouds over the summit. The east-west length of the field is over 200 mile (320 km), while the width reaches up to 80 miles (130 km) in the central Wrangell Mountains. Another explosion at Shishaldin is reported by AVO. Very interesting, https://www.livescience.com/hidden-impact-crater-laos.html. Or in other words Mauna Loa will not have accumulated an extraordinary amount of pressure. Situation has reversed and I think that throughout our lifetimes it is going to remain like that, it might still erupt a few times this century though. This was not directly observed but inferred: It comes from a report in the Galveston Daily News of June 10, 1902: “In June, 1900, I observed a black patch several miles in extent on the southern slope of the mountain, extending from the summit down to perhaps 11,000 feet elevation. The discussion is now on climate sensitivity. Tephra from the explosion has been found as far east as Poland. Very nice Churchill self reference, Albert…sort of . True. By eye, and from what’s shown, I would be tempted to suggest a quadratic would be a marginally better fit. Very productive volcano. And there has been more recent activity. Very interessting! Der Mount St. Helens [ˌmaʊnt sənt ˈhelənz] ist ein aktiver Vulkan im Skamania County im Süden des US-Bundesstaates Washington mit einer Höhe von 2539 m.Er gehört zur Kaskadenkette, einem vulkanischen Gebirgszug, der sich entlang der Westküste Nordamerikas erstreckt und einen Teil des pazifischen Feuerrings darstellt. Der Mount Wrangell ist ein Vulkan im Südosten des US-Bundesstaates Alaska unweit des kanadischen Territoriums Yukon. The field is named for Mount Wrangell, a massive shield volcanowhich has been active historically. Its most recent activity was September, 2003. The oldest volcano in the Wrangell mountains is also its highest peak, Mount Blackburn; at 4,996 m it is just shy of the 5 km mark. A doubling of CO2 cause 3.7W/m2 of warming. There are no strict limits. Best viewed from far away, Classic vulcanian eruption With a diameter of 30 km at 2000 m elevation, 900 cu km Mount Wrangell is one of the world's largest continental-margin volcanoes. A back channel item was mistakenly put on the site. There are two main layers, one to the north and one to the east, and radiocarbon dating of wood buried by the ash shows that the northern layer is older, and was deposited between AD 150 and 500. There was a wobble after August but it has gone back to the previous trend. The eruption is mentioned in a book on the geology of Alaska by the Estonian mineralogist Constantin Grewink, and is a second-hand mention of an eruption from ‘Chetchina’. After this quake, there are some reports of increasing smoke coming from the summit. He likes to take things apart and explain them.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZjnbl1apeY. It turns out that they came not from the Wrangell Mountains but from the other half of the park, the St Elias Mountains. When the eruption comes if it is at the summit it will be small (like 1975), if at the rifts probably similar to 1984. Right now I find out from the news that it has erupted (I didn’t know when I wrote the previous comment). The huge quantities of smoke produce may actually help nucleate clouds and cause global dimming if anything. Wran•gell [[t]ˈræŋ gəl[/t]] n. geg Mount, an active volcano in SE Alaska, in the Wrangell Mountains. We are currently facing a hard time as a civilization…. Regarding religion, I see much in Gould’s idea of non-overlapping magisteria. It is the park's only active volcano and occasionally steam plumes can be seen rising from its summit. Wrangel; Wrangell … The harsh winters make the land difficult to live in, and in consequence much of the wilderness seems hardly touched by human hand. This followed the 1964 Good Friday Alaskan super-quake (M9). Also not sure but someone mentioned that they were reducing the number of prescribed burns because of the fear of CO2 release. Andesite lava was ejected from the circular caldera fault at this time. New post is up! For shallow subduction the volcanoes will be at considerable distance, whilst for steeper subduction they are closer. This is clearly a volcano with a serious temper. Or more long lived Puu Oo like tube feed flows. They are among the tallest volcanoes in the world not by their own effort, but because they grew on the shoulders of giants. Religion might be closed to hypothesis but science never should be, even if someone argues AGW is false, just review the claims without bias, and offer an official explanation, that’s science. The benefits of CO2 fertilisation and warmth. This has nothing to do with falling caldera roof though, its the opposite way round! But there is no evidence of older eruptions similar to the 853 event. CO2 is a non issue if you understand chemistry. The recent activity is shown in reports of eruptions in 1784, 1884-5, and 1900. 3. Other articles where Mount Wrangell is discussed: Alaskan mountains: Physiography of the southern ranges: …16,421 feet (5,005 metres), while Mount Wrangell (14,163 feet [4,317 metres]) is still steaming. You will find papers from this time about, for instance, the date in the year that a certain bird would lay eggs, and whether this was getting earlier in the year: if so, this would indicate a significant environmental change. DustDevil Apart from the human costs to life and property, over half a billion animals are believed to have been killed already and several species are likely to become extinct. (It’s only weird because we haven’t seen a lot of the stuff that it does before and the guys who study it have to jump through hoops to figure out what it’s up to. As it was covered with snow when the mountain was next seen, about the last of September, it seems probable that the bare area was due to material thrown out by the volcano.” Another report from 1899 mentions an eruptive plume and a lava stream, although there is no confirmation of any lava. We had to divert around the north side of the Wrangells. A 50-cm thick layer of white ash can be found in areas surrounding the Wrangell Mountains. In Australia, the exceptional influence of the coal mines decides on the government. Let’s GO! https://www.volcanocafe.org/building-the-wrangell-mountains/. The most recent results I have seen have pushed the median up from 3.0C to 3.3C based on data that shows that low clouds contribute to warming. Anyone who argues for AGW should be open to facts that prove otherwise and anyone who argues against AGW should be open to facts that prove it is so. Alert raised to Red now, first time for Shishaldin since 1999. Other countries have ripped out their Eucalyptus plantations because of the extraordinary fire risk they pose due to flammable oils in the leaves. Photograph by D. Richter, U.S. Geological Survey, 1989. 14,006 ft. (4269 m) From formal English to slang. This consisted of … This was a double one-off event. Churchill remains a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma. This crater has significant ground heat. Downgraded to 5.9 after review. But people who deny the data will not be convinced until their own lives become badly affected, by which time it may be too late. * * * … Universalium. Although no centers younger than late Miocene are known in Canada, the eruption of rhyolite pumice, White River Ash, from Mount Churchill near the head of Klutlan Glacier blanketed large areas of northwestern Canada with tephra some 2,000 years ago. i remember driving up the alcan for the first time many years ago and driving around the group Mt. Looking forward to the follow-up. The bulk of the Wrangell Volcanic Field lies within the Wrangell Mountains of Alaska, but the field also extends eastwards into the neighboring Saint Elias Mountains and the Yukon Territory. I don’t agree with singling out christian fundamentalists, though. The highest volcano of the US is here, called Mount Bona. Time seemed suspended as we drove around and hour after hour it looked like no progress had been made. Here, they live in the shadow of other, better known mountains. The field is named for Mount Wrangell, a massive shield volcano which has been active historically. It is an offspring from the Wrangell Volcanic Zone, located away from the other volcanoes. Description Images Maps Bibliography Reported Activity. This is a much older mountain chain, extending to the coast. Alaska is a wonderland. East of its current summit is a caldera 4 by 3 km across: this is likely the source of the ash, and probably the location of its summit before these events. I hope you, your house and your town are ok! This is the first part of the Wrangell post. from motsfo at minus 5F and probably going to minus 25F in the next few days…. Thanks, Albert, for another great post. The Wrangell Volcanic Field is a volcanic field stretching from eastern Alaska in the United States to the southwestern Yukon Territory in Canada. Mount Wrangell is the only Wrangell volcano considered active. The following headline account of an eruption from Mount Wrangell appeared in the April 15, 1911, edition of the Chitina Leader: 'Last night about 9:20 p.m. a flash which was at first mistaken for lightning, was observed at the summit of Mount Wrangell. This is normally stated as the warming arising from a doubling of the CO2. A lake on an island in a lake on an island? The Wrangell mountains are further from the coast and one may expect a shallower angle of subduction. Thank you. If the volcano erupted, it would melt the ice. The field includes numerous shield volcanoes, stratovolcanoes, caldera complexes, cinder cones, and extensive lava flows, which have erupted throughout the past 26 million years. Years of extreme drought and now extreme temperatures with records in every state have caused this. That is exactly what happened. I remember my last trip to Fairbanks (Fire season 1992) in a DC7-due to weather. Its height is impressive too. I knew volcanos is skookum as frig, but now I’ve got a picture to go with it! https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/datablog/ng-interactive/2019/dec/07/how-big-are-the-fires-burning-on-the-east-coast-of-australia-interactive-map. Yesterday’s radar image of Anak Krakatau. Mount Churchill seems an exception, as it has produced at least two rhyolitic explosive eruption during the holocene. 2. Source: Preece et al. And one Wrangell volcano has produced this ultimate rarity, a rhyolitic voluminous lava flow. The plot below shows the time line of the Wrangell Volcanics. The White Ash eruptions came from its lower, secondary peak, Mount Churchill. (1 deg C) This was amplified by an additional 10w/m2 of positive feedback in the computer models in the form of increasing water vapour in the upper troposphere. The mountain started to build up by 600,000 years ago. The volcanic zone may be in the process of dying. Of course we are still testing predictions: that never stops. But underneath runs a deeper history, and lies an older volcanic field. The last and presumably final eruption was between 125,000 and 150,000 years ago. HISTORIC EVENT DATES (22 events) Key: Eruption Questionable eruption Non-eruptive activity. Very extreme weather patterns unfolding. Most of volcanoes of the Western Wrangell Mountains are not like the other volcanoes located around the Pacific Rim. Mud pit and a mildly interested tourist. They started trading for furs with area Tlingit in 1811 at the site of present-day Wrangell. Mount Wrangell itself, over 4317 meters tall, remains an active volcano. Ash at 9 km. Obviously, these volcanoes are not near the subduction trench, but some distance down stream – how far depends on the angle of subduction. The source of the Wrangell volcanics is clearly the subduction of the Pacific plate underneath Alaska. Source: USGS. Mount Wrangell is the more distant, rounded and glacial covered dome southeast of Mount Sanford, with its summit of 14,163'. The youngest lava flows are about 50,000 years old. The models find values between 2 and 4.5 C with some outliers. Volcanic activity came later, and the shield began to build. Source: https://endlessloopphotography.com/2016/08/09/the-alaska-highway-and-wrangell-st-elias-national-park-canada-and-alaska/. By the way, none of the suspected eruptions at Wrangell are confirmed by AVO (including 1900) so it is unknown when it last erupted. Is there any basalt type that is result of larger partial melting than Thoelitic Basalt? Around 3.4 million years ago the 5-km wide caldera collapsed. Couldn’t that be shortsighted in some form or another from the climate extremists? This eruption comes from a report by a local prospector, John Bremner, who was about 30 miles from the mountain. Its volume is over 220 cubic It too is volcanic, and probably formed between 600,000 and 200,000 years ago. It began to grow 5 million years ago with a granite intrusion. I don’t single out Christian fundamentalists. Looking forward to next part. As a group they proved vulnerable to deception by people they thought were on their side. REPORTED ACTIVITY. It was like we were driving on a huge belt of moving road travelling in the opposite direction at the same speed, cancelling all our progress. When will Mauna Loa start go go alkaline? I remember that report. But those steam vents … The Wrangell Volcanic Zone is not overly active. As offtopic, and also on the “fires” topic, sad to see the massive fires in Australia. Come back next week to read about reluctant subduction, building America, and the flood that brought the rain. The physics of global warming is most definite on the science side! Mount Bona, in the adjacent St Elias mountain, is the tallest US volcano, beating such giants as Mauna Loa. The Wrangell Mountains are immediately east of this gap, and are a bit in-land, as a clearly separate mountain range. It’s predictions made over a year ago have come to pass. It is akin to detecting a new type of signal from the Earth’s interior that indicates a dramatic movement of molten rocks before the eruption. Mount Churchill may have had a third, much smaller explosion 300 years ago which gave rise to a tephra deposit. But there is no indication for this. Mount Wrangell has an impressive summit caldera which measures 4 by 6 km, filled with 1-km thick ice. https://res.mdpi.com/d_attachment/climate/climate-06-00062/article_deploy/climate-06-00062.pdf, https://www.researchgate.net/publication/276497853_Late_Twentieth-Century_Warming_and_Variations_in_Cloud_Cover. I see them as victims, who were hijacked. Currently Mauna Loa is considered to be in its shield stage, I am not sure if magma is more alkaline or not but it remains well within the tholeeitic range. Two of the rim craters show a vapour column. The volcanoes grew on top of an already highly elevated range.

is mount wrangell active

https://phys.org/news/2020-01-formation-huge-underwater-volcano-offshore.html, Formation of a huge underwater volcano offshore the Comoros. See more ideas about Wrangell, National parks, Alaska. offtopic– but there’s a new lisbon earthquake paper out, posits multiple ruptures in quick succession, but an overall smaller quake. To give it a European scale, this park is larger than Switzerland. It is hard to disagree with that statement! Tanada is around 1.5 million years old, and like the other volcanoes here it experienced caldera collapse and died. Webcams. Mount Wrangell's broad, gentle form is an excellent example of a shield volcano, in fact, it is the largest andesite shield volcano in North America. All of the higher peaks are less than 5 million years old, since the rate of glacial erosion is very high in this region of extreme snowfall and cold temperatures. There are some similarities here with the formation of volcanic mares on the Moon. Received a strange email allegedly from Albert entitled “the last post” when you click on the link to get to the posting the link doesn’t work. No one can do science and at the same time have an agenda, pick one or do neither. This 14,163 ft volcano last erupted March, 1930. It was named after the US senator Joseph Blackburn, well-known in his time but now remembered only because of the mountain. The shield rises over 12,000 feet (3,700 m) above the Copper River to its southwest. So far an area of 32,400 square miles, or 83,915.60 square km, or 25.5 million acres, or 10,319,484 hectares has burned this year and summer has only just begun. Like the “recursive volcano of Taal” in the Philippines: the island has a volcano: its caldera has a lake; on the lake there is a volcano, etc. It was deleted when the mistake was spotted, but the email didn’t know that. Now, an international team led by the scientist Simone Cesca from the German GeoForschungsZentrum GFZ is illuminating the processes deep inside the Earth before and during the formation of the new volcano. It would have been a small phreatomagmatic explosion. A standard spectacular explosion. Considerable recent uplift, accompanied by rapid erosion, has reduced once vast areas of upper Cenozoic volcanic rocks to small isolated remnants. I cannot get enough of these kinds of posts; never heard of before yet such interesting, much wow. I saw that this morning. On some pre-1900 maps Wrangell was labeled as Mount Tillman. The closest Wrangell volcanoes to it have been extinct for several million years. I had to be evacuated from one that surrounded my village, saved by volunteer fire fighters. Wrangell . Mount Blackburn is rather older than the senator, though. I wonder if it will repeat that 1999 eruption. Wrangell synonyms, Wrangell pronunciation, Wrangell translation, English dictionary definition of Wrangell. The location of Wrangell–St. Mount Drum, with Snider Peak on the right. “The Wrangellia Terrane”. At the point where the melt initiates, the newly formed magma begins to percolate upwards. I am quite surprised by the absence of volcanic eruptions in Iceland. Science has a procedure for this: if you pose a model based on the currently available data, this model should make predictions which can be tested in the future. There is more here than meets the eye. I have seen the the Canadian Rockies, Denali , and the Rocky mountains. Thanks Albert! Thats why infra red emission to space are increasing, 2/3 of observed warming during the satellite era is can be directly attributed to cloud forcing. That’s Popo and it is a very tall volcano. The Wrangells are some of the most visually striking of the Alaskan mountains because of their rugged topography and perennial snow cover. The Wrangell mountains are a volcanic region, build up relatively recently by eruptions. That is bigger than several European countries, or US states. There were prediction around 2010 that the southern Amazon rainforest would see increase in fires, and that has been confirmed. Mount Wrangell is the only volcano in the Wrangell Mountains that is currently active. The shield rises over 12,000 feet (3,700 m) above the Copper River to its southwest. The eruptions seem to come in bursts, voluminous when they happen, quiet at other times. 1984 would be expected to have a longer recovery. Jarvis was active at the same time but grew larger. From the article: "Mount Blackburn is erupting again. His ridiculous religious freedom legislation would be repealed and any religion denying science and thus endangering life and property would be banned. The observations show negative feedback with water vapour decreasing, consistent with Le Chatelier’s principle, (the thermodynamic equilibrium law), The actual driver of climate is changes to cloud cover which is an order of magnitude larger than CO2 forcing. Sanford and Mt. Well told. The longest Mauna Loa slow tube eruptions lasted 1100 years in holocene I think. Imagine all the living things in an area this size you may be familiar with. During the winter and on cool summer mornings, it is not unusual to see a steam plume rising out of the vents situated in craters along the margin of the summit caldera. The last of the gang of three is Mount Wrangell itself, which is the only currently active volcano in the Wrangell Volcanic Zone. The Ahtna people call it K'elt'aeni, "the one who controls the weather," with the alternate name Uk'eledi, "the one with smoke on it" when it is active. Choose your volcano destination! Chitina residents report that the eruption is spectacular, not to mention huge columns of black smoke." Nov 17, 2017 - Explore JKO Variety Shop's board "Wrangell St. Elias NP - 1980", followed by 7307 people on Pinterest. View is to the southeast. The Wrangell-St. Elias National Park is the largest protected wilderness in the United States. The summit today is used for research by the U.S. Army, whose buildings are heated by volcanic steam. High on the snow-covered flank, a gray-colored swath extends from a high point that we identify as the west caldera rim near Mount Wrangell Crater. After Skookum became extinct, activity shifted southwest, to Tanada and Jarvis. Over large areas extrusive rocks lie in flat undisturbed piles on a Cenozoic surface of moderate relief. It is only just underneath the surface and clearly represents a recent event. North Crater appears to be the source of the occasional explosions. yeah, well ok, its not at all simple, as would be expected. Wrangell: translation. However, it appears that such activity is not that unusual, and more dark patches stemming from phreatic explosions have been reported since. In 1834, Baron Ferdinand Petrovich Wrangel, then head of Russian government interests in Russian America, ordered a stockade built near the Naanyaa.aayí clan house of Chief Shakes, called Shéiksh Hídi. Very rough on the edges, but fun. Deserts have also decreased in area and forest are expanding despite our worst efforts in the tropics. The anti-climate stance came originally from industry, not from them. After the caldera collapsed, the volcanic activity ceased. Mauna Loa is one of the most active volcanoes on the planet. Probaly will be the same fast short lived voluminous style as 1984 and 1950 s with large fountains and fast moving open channels. This time in the southern part. Mount Wrangell: Type: Shield volcano with summit caldera: Most Recent Activity: March 26, 1930: Seismically Monitored: Yes: Color Code: GREEN: Alert Level: NORMAL: Elevation: 14163 ft (4317 m) Latitude: 62.00572° N: Longitude: 144.01935° W: Quadrangle: Gulkana Valdez McCarthy Nabesna : CAVW Number: 315020: Pronunciation: Sound file Mount Hickman. Higher elevations of the field above 5,000 ft (1,500 m) are almost entirely covered in glaciers and icefields, especially on the windward southern side of the ranges. Mount Wrangell, in Ahtna K’ełt’aeni or K’ełedi when erupting, [3] is a massive shield volcano located in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve in southeastern Alaska, United States.The shield rises over 12,000 feet (3,700 m) above the Copper River to its southwest. Mount St. Elias, the second highest point in both the United States and Canada. The study is published in the journal Nature Geoscience. At the surface, a volcano begins to grow.

What is occurring? They have the appearance of small shields. 2014. Thanks to the rotation of the West Coast- the Seven Davils of Idaho have a goodly chunk of Wrangellia Terraine in them. Wrangell has several active fumarolic areas in its summit caldera. To be “weathered-in” at the South eastern Alaska coastal town of Wrangell is an experience with frontier mentality, for fishing and drinking are the principal pursuits of the pop ulace. The field includes the four highest volcanoes in the United States, Mount Bona, Mount Blackburn, Mount Sanford, and Mount Churchill, all of which exceed 15,000 ft (4,600 m) in elevation. WRANGELL LINKS. No worries. Page 8 talks about the drastic increasing chance of ‘compound events’. 1: summit of Mount Churchill; 2: basin presumably caused by the white-ash eruptions; 3: location of an old dacite lava flow. The one you just read is about 2500 words. He does videos. Elias National Park and Preserve within Alaska . just saying there are a lot of excellent scientists in my religion….. they don’t have to be exclusive of each other. It formed as a result of subduction of the Pacific Plate beneath the North American Plate at the easternmost end of the Aleutian Trench. It is significantly lower than the other peaks, at a measly 3,661 meters, but this is not for want of trying. Locally, however, strata of the same age have been affected by a late pulse of tectonism, during which they were faulted, contorted into tight symmetrical folds, or overridden by pre-Cenozoic baserocks along southwesterly dipping thrust faults. Mount Wrangell (elev. n Mount Wrangell a mountain in S Alaska, in the W Wrangell Mountains. There is a river of about this name near Wrangell, and therefore this eruption was subsequently identified as Mount Wrangell. Wrangell reported activity. Sep 15, 2016 - Explore Tom Snyder's board "Wrangell - St. Elias NP" on Pinterest. More than almost any other volcano on Earth. Mount, an active volcano in SE Alaska, in the Wrangell Mountains. Even as recent as 15 years ago, they were by and large in favour of caring for the environment, not destroying it. If you center the interactive map on the following website on a city like Birmingham (UK), or Oxford, or Dusseldorf, or Kansas City; you can get an idea of the scale of the current Australian bush fires. The end of the video footage shows two distinct dark areas on the rim that is normally snow-covered. Tephra found in Greenland’s ice has given us a precise date: this eruption happened in the winter of AD 853 (a date 50 years earlier is also in the literature but is now out of date). Very interesting if you can get your hands on it. Wrangell — Original name in latin Wrangell Name in other language WRG State code US Continent/City America/Sitka longitude 56.47083 latitude 132.37667 altitude 26 Population 2369 Date 2011 05 14 … But my god. 4,317 m) is the youngest and only active volcano in the Oligocene to Holocene-aged Wrangell volcanic field that extends from beyond the Alaska-Yukon border northwest through the Wrangell Mountains to the Copper River Basin. Fortunately we have a couple hundred years hopefully till the next 1ky bond solar cooling and the catastrophic cooling of the little ice age we are recovering from seems to have been due to the conjunction of the 2.4k bray solar cycle and a 1.5k oceanic cycle. The eastern lobe covering a part of Canada came later, in an eruption several times larger than the first one. 14,006 ft. (4269 m). 2014, Geosphere, 10, 1020-1042. Nice to know that other folks appreciate AvE! Mount Drum is 3,661 m (12,010 ft) high and was active between approximately 700,000 and 240,000 years ago. Only the young Mount Wrangell still shows its shield-like form; the other, commonly older volcanoes have had much of their original form removed by glacial and other erosional processes, such as Rabbit Mountain and Felsite Peak, which are now eroded to form an outcrop. The precise depth depends on the temperature and how wet the subducted rock is. I think 2019 saw an unusual area of fires across the world, considering also the fires in the Brazil, Bolivia, Siberia, Indonesia… That puts extra CO2 into the atmosphere, a classical positive feedback loop. Mount Wrangell, in Ahtna K’ełt’aeni or K’ełedi when erupting, is a massive shield volcano located in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve in southeastern Alaska, United States. And bye bye pancake lava dome blasted away. but nothing prepared me for looking UP a these massive giants… that same trip I fortunate to get Denali in a good photo-cloud free.. The possibility exists that these quakes opened up pathways for underground hot water. At that distance, the ‘hundreds of feet’ corresponds to 0.1 degree, a fifth of the diameter of the full Moon: it is hard to see how he could have seen such detail as the ‘immense stones’. The last major eruption of the volcano occurred in 1900, although steam is a common sight above the massive peak. The volcanoes all grow as a shield, and develop a caldera at the end of their evolution. Some smaller peaks are not included, and it is conceivable that some further, minor eruption centres were buried under the developing shields. 5426M, so that was a big explosion covered at least 2/3 of the cone. Elias National Park and Preserve within Alaska. A bit in the Hell’s canyon area too..-H/T Nick Zentner Central Washington University.. i don’t have time to look it up on You Tube.. The 1884/5 eruption is also considered unconfirmed. If you study paleoclimatology then you realise cold is the enemy. The calderas collapse to over a kilometer in depth, but much of this is filed in with basaltic flows which probably come from the ring fault. All the mountains here are volcanic, and almost all are impressively high. It looks like the cone in the lake has itself developed a crater lake. Is it possible that the lava fields that buried the crater were in part caused by the impact? The current Mount Drum is only one side of the original mountain; the other side is Snider Peak. Does not serve us as a species. It have erupted ”large eruptions” 33 times since 1840. Indeed Mauna Loa is loosing the Hotspot to Kilauea and Loihi. However, Grewink himself assigns it to the Andreanof Islands, and it is now usually assumed to refer to Great Sitkin. Of course Pleistocene rocks are buried under miles of lava flow rock now .. Mauna Loa and Kilauea are alternating dominance over the hotspot, for example Mauna Loa was dominant from 1840 to 1950 when it remained frequently active and very productive. The Pacific plate subducts along the entire Aleutian arc, but volcanic activity is not the same everywhere. These are the main volcanoes of the Wrangell Volcanics. The current long dormancy has some obvious reasons, first that the 1984 eruption reduced pressure significantly visible as a decrease in caldera distance, while the 1975 eruption had a comparatively small effect. There is westward drift of the activity over time, and perhaps a new volcano will develop where the mud volcanoes are located. Especially considering that we are in the maxima of a hotspot activity and it has been 5 years since last eruption. Impressive indeed Mount Wrangell [rang-guhl] was named after Russian Admiral Ferdinand von Wrangel (or Wrangell), governor of Russian America from 1830 to 1836. The two pyroclastic flows together amounted to a 50km3 eruption. Fascinating geology. Add your article. WTF! And now a star in Iceland. The Wrangell and adjacent Elias Mountains. 1000 words can make a short snappy post, 3000 words is quite long, 6000 words is epic. These were two serious eruptions; the second eruption was large enough to cause the local population to migrate south and temporarily vacate the region. It began with a granite intrusion 5 million years ago, which developed into volcanic eruptions a million years later. The 1 meter deep pits at their peaks produce warm muddy water and methane gas. LOCALS and natives often think climbing is pointless and perverse. Where the magma goes is less clear! It too is a large shield volcano, build up by andesitic eruptions. I did not pick this video for any specific reason. That is the current level of discussion: it is about model differences at the 10% level. As for the current Australian fires, the indigenous owners used to burn twice this area every year, thats the only way that you can prevent fire here, reduce the fuel load. Wrangell Volcanic Field lies within the Wrangell Mountains of Alaska, but the field also extends eastwards into the neighboring Saint Elias Mountains Mount Wran. The location of Wrangell–St. Hey, its Alaska. Drum. Ref the Andesite… the whole area is accretionary. It was built by a series of large lava flows from 600,000 to 200,000 years ago. The stratovolcanoof Mount Churchillhas had the largest recent eruptions, with two large-magnitude explosive eruptions in the last 2,000 years that blanketed most of the Yukon with volcanic ash(the White River Ash). At that time, indeed, there were scientists arguing on both sides. Wrangell was founded by Russians as one of the oldest non-Native settlements in Alaska. It lost almost 90% of its ice between 1965 and 1984, at a time when the other craters showed no change in ice cover. The volcano is a very large (900 km3) broad shield containing an ice-filled, nonexplosive, collapse caldera measuring 3.2 by 5.6 kilometers. That’s just, perhaps, maybe a little too authoritarian! The arc of volcanoes ends west of Anchorage. http://www.bom.gov.au/state-of-the-climate/State-of-the-Climate-2018.pdf. The magma is basaltic although there are differences from normal subduction zones. The Canadian portion of the field is dominated by scattered remnants of upper Cenozoic subaerial lavas and pyroclastic rocks. These poor folks can’t catch a break. Best! Where all is not revealed. every little twig is covered in frost and i’m hibernating till it warms a little. In spite of frequent puffs of steam, geologists tell us that Wrangell is showing no signs of erupting any time soon. See more ideas about wrangell, alaska, national parks. 1995, USGS Bulletin 2072 https://pubs.usgs.gov/bul/2072/report.pdf. It was a typical Wrangell winter, as is evident from his journal: ‘Clear but very cold the floor of my cabin is frose two foot from the fire and I thought I had made it almost air tight so you see I am in no danger of melting with the heat.’ (www.avo.alaska.edu). No matter how long we drove we seemed to be standing still and as the hours went by it was rather disconcerting. It is also important that Mauna Loa currently has a very low supply, recent inflation is far slower than inflation before the 1975 eruption. Mexico. Along the caldera rim are three further smaller craters, imaginatively called: Mount Wrangell Crater, North Crater, and East Crater. They have said that for years it has been impossible to do this because it was too hot and dry to do this safely at any time. That leaves us with the 1900 eruption. The Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) receives several reports per year from pilots and local residents who observe larger than normal steam clouds over the summit. The east-west length of the field is over 200 mile (320 km), while the width reaches up to 80 miles (130 km) in the central Wrangell Mountains. Another explosion at Shishaldin is reported by AVO. Very interesting, https://www.livescience.com/hidden-impact-crater-laos.html. Or in other words Mauna Loa will not have accumulated an extraordinary amount of pressure. Situation has reversed and I think that throughout our lifetimes it is going to remain like that, it might still erupt a few times this century though. This was not directly observed but inferred: It comes from a report in the Galveston Daily News of June 10, 1902: “In June, 1900, I observed a black patch several miles in extent on the southern slope of the mountain, extending from the summit down to perhaps 11,000 feet elevation. The discussion is now on climate sensitivity. Tephra from the explosion has been found as far east as Poland. Very nice Churchill self reference, Albert…sort of . True. By eye, and from what’s shown, I would be tempted to suggest a quadratic would be a marginally better fit. Very productive volcano. And there has been more recent activity. Very interessting! Der Mount St. Helens [ˌmaʊnt sənt ˈhelənz] ist ein aktiver Vulkan im Skamania County im Süden des US-Bundesstaates Washington mit einer Höhe von 2539 m.Er gehört zur Kaskadenkette, einem vulkanischen Gebirgszug, der sich entlang der Westküste Nordamerikas erstreckt und einen Teil des pazifischen Feuerrings darstellt. Der Mount Wrangell ist ein Vulkan im Südosten des US-Bundesstaates Alaska unweit des kanadischen Territoriums Yukon. The field is named for Mount Wrangell, a massive shield volcanowhich has been active historically. Its most recent activity was September, 2003. The oldest volcano in the Wrangell mountains is also its highest peak, Mount Blackburn; at 4,996 m it is just shy of the 5 km mark. A doubling of CO2 cause 3.7W/m2 of warming. There are no strict limits. Best viewed from far away, Classic vulcanian eruption With a diameter of 30 km at 2000 m elevation, 900 cu km Mount Wrangell is one of the world's largest continental-margin volcanoes. A back channel item was mistakenly put on the site. There are two main layers, one to the north and one to the east, and radiocarbon dating of wood buried by the ash shows that the northern layer is older, and was deposited between AD 150 and 500. There was a wobble after August but it has gone back to the previous trend. The eruption is mentioned in a book on the geology of Alaska by the Estonian mineralogist Constantin Grewink, and is a second-hand mention of an eruption from ‘Chetchina’. After this quake, there are some reports of increasing smoke coming from the summit. He likes to take things apart and explain them.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZjnbl1apeY. It turns out that they came not from the Wrangell Mountains but from the other half of the park, the St Elias Mountains. When the eruption comes if it is at the summit it will be small (like 1975), if at the rifts probably similar to 1984. Right now I find out from the news that it has erupted (I didn’t know when I wrote the previous comment). The huge quantities of smoke produce may actually help nucleate clouds and cause global dimming if anything. Wran•gell [[t]ˈræŋ gəl[/t]] n. geg Mount, an active volcano in SE Alaska, in the Wrangell Mountains. We are currently facing a hard time as a civilization…. Regarding religion, I see much in Gould’s idea of non-overlapping magisteria. It is the park's only active volcano and occasionally steam plumes can be seen rising from its summit. Wrangel; Wrangell … The harsh winters make the land difficult to live in, and in consequence much of the wilderness seems hardly touched by human hand. This followed the 1964 Good Friday Alaskan super-quake (M9). Also not sure but someone mentioned that they were reducing the number of prescribed burns because of the fear of CO2 release. Andesite lava was ejected from the circular caldera fault at this time. New post is up! For shallow subduction the volcanoes will be at considerable distance, whilst for steeper subduction they are closer. This is clearly a volcano with a serious temper. Or more long lived Puu Oo like tube feed flows. They are among the tallest volcanoes in the world not by their own effort, but because they grew on the shoulders of giants. Religion might be closed to hypothesis but science never should be, even if someone argues AGW is false, just review the claims without bias, and offer an official explanation, that’s science. The benefits of CO2 fertilisation and warmth. This has nothing to do with falling caldera roof though, its the opposite way round! But there is no evidence of older eruptions similar to the 853 event. CO2 is a non issue if you understand chemistry. The recent activity is shown in reports of eruptions in 1784, 1884-5, and 1900. 3. Other articles where Mount Wrangell is discussed: Alaskan mountains: Physiography of the southern ranges: …16,421 feet (5,005 metres), while Mount Wrangell (14,163 feet [4,317 metres]) is still steaming. You will find papers from this time about, for instance, the date in the year that a certain bird would lay eggs, and whether this was getting earlier in the year: if so, this would indicate a significant environmental change. DustDevil Apart from the human costs to life and property, over half a billion animals are believed to have been killed already and several species are likely to become extinct. (It’s only weird because we haven’t seen a lot of the stuff that it does before and the guys who study it have to jump through hoops to figure out what it’s up to. As it was covered with snow when the mountain was next seen, about the last of September, it seems probable that the bare area was due to material thrown out by the volcano.” Another report from 1899 mentions an eruptive plume and a lava stream, although there is no confirmation of any lava. We had to divert around the north side of the Wrangells. A 50-cm thick layer of white ash can be found in areas surrounding the Wrangell Mountains. In Australia, the exceptional influence of the coal mines decides on the government. Let’s GO! https://www.volcanocafe.org/building-the-wrangell-mountains/. The most recent results I have seen have pushed the median up from 3.0C to 3.3C based on data that shows that low clouds contribute to warming. Anyone who argues for AGW should be open to facts that prove otherwise and anyone who argues against AGW should be open to facts that prove it is so. Alert raised to Red now, first time for Shishaldin since 1999. Other countries have ripped out their Eucalyptus plantations because of the extraordinary fire risk they pose due to flammable oils in the leaves. Photograph by D. Richter, U.S. Geological Survey, 1989. 14,006 ft. (4269 m) From formal English to slang. This consisted of … This was a double one-off event. Churchill remains a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma. This crater has significant ground heat. Downgraded to 5.9 after review. But people who deny the data will not be convinced until their own lives become badly affected, by which time it may be too late. * * * … Universalium. Although no centers younger than late Miocene are known in Canada, the eruption of rhyolite pumice, White River Ash, from Mount Churchill near the head of Klutlan Glacier blanketed large areas of northwestern Canada with tephra some 2,000 years ago. i remember driving up the alcan for the first time many years ago and driving around the group Mt. Looking forward to the follow-up. The bulk of the Wrangell Volcanic Field lies within the Wrangell Mountains of Alaska, but the field also extends eastwards into the neighboring Saint Elias Mountains and the Yukon Territory. I don’t agree with singling out christian fundamentalists, though. The highest volcano of the US is here, called Mount Bona. Time seemed suspended as we drove around and hour after hour it looked like no progress had been made. Here, they live in the shadow of other, better known mountains. The field is named for Mount Wrangell, a massive shield volcano which has been active historically. It is an offspring from the Wrangell Volcanic Zone, located away from the other volcanoes. Description Images Maps Bibliography Reported Activity. This is a much older mountain chain, extending to the coast. Alaska is a wonderland. East of its current summit is a caldera 4 by 3 km across: this is likely the source of the ash, and probably the location of its summit before these events. I hope you, your house and your town are ok! This is the first part of the Wrangell post. from motsfo at minus 5F and probably going to minus 25F in the next few days…. Thanks, Albert, for another great post. The Wrangell Volcanic Field is a volcanic field stretching from eastern Alaska in the United States to the southwestern Yukon Territory in Canada. Mount Wrangell is the only Wrangell volcano considered active. The following headline account of an eruption from Mount Wrangell appeared in the April 15, 1911, edition of the Chitina Leader: 'Last night about 9:20 p.m. a flash which was at first mistaken for lightning, was observed at the summit of Mount Wrangell. This is normally stated as the warming arising from a doubling of the CO2. A lake on an island in a lake on an island? The Wrangell mountains are further from the coast and one may expect a shallower angle of subduction. Thank you. If the volcano erupted, it would melt the ice. The field includes numerous shield volcanoes, stratovolcanoes, caldera complexes, cinder cones, and extensive lava flows, which have erupted throughout the past 26 million years. Years of extreme drought and now extreme temperatures with records in every state have caused this. That is exactly what happened. I remember my last trip to Fairbanks (Fire season 1992) in a DC7-due to weather. Its height is impressive too. I knew volcanos is skookum as frig, but now I’ve got a picture to go with it! https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/datablog/ng-interactive/2019/dec/07/how-big-are-the-fires-burning-on-the-east-coast-of-australia-interactive-map. Yesterday’s radar image of Anak Krakatau. Mount Churchill seems an exception, as it has produced at least two rhyolitic explosive eruption during the holocene. 2. Source: Preece et al. And one Wrangell volcano has produced this ultimate rarity, a rhyolitic voluminous lava flow. The plot below shows the time line of the Wrangell Volcanics. The White Ash eruptions came from its lower, secondary peak, Mount Churchill. (1 deg C) This was amplified by an additional 10w/m2 of positive feedback in the computer models in the form of increasing water vapour in the upper troposphere. The mountain started to build up by 600,000 years ago. The volcanic zone may be in the process of dying. Of course we are still testing predictions: that never stops. But underneath runs a deeper history, and lies an older volcanic field. The last and presumably final eruption was between 125,000 and 150,000 years ago. HISTORIC EVENT DATES (22 events) Key: Eruption Questionable eruption Non-eruptive activity. Very extreme weather patterns unfolding. Most of volcanoes of the Western Wrangell Mountains are not like the other volcanoes located around the Pacific Rim. Mud pit and a mildly interested tourist. They started trading for furs with area Tlingit in 1811 at the site of present-day Wrangell. Mount Wrangell itself, over 4317 meters tall, remains an active volcano. Ash at 9 km. Obviously, these volcanoes are not near the subduction trench, but some distance down stream – how far depends on the angle of subduction. The source of the Wrangell volcanics is clearly the subduction of the Pacific plate underneath Alaska. Source: USGS. Mount Wrangell is the more distant, rounded and glacial covered dome southeast of Mount Sanford, with its summit of 14,163'. The youngest lava flows are about 50,000 years old. The models find values between 2 and 4.5 C with some outliers. Volcanic activity came later, and the shield began to build.

By the way, none of the suspected eruptions at Wrangell are confirmed by AVO (including 1900) so it is unknown when it last erupted. Is there any basalt type that is result of larger partial melting than Thoelitic Basalt? Around 3.4 million years ago the 5-km wide caldera collapsed. Couldn’t that be shortsighted in some form or another from the climate extremists? This eruption comes from a report by a local prospector, John Bremner, who was about 30 miles from the mountain. Its volume is over 220 cubic It too is volcanic, and probably formed between 600,000 and 200,000 years ago. It began to grow 5 million years ago with a granite intrusion. I don’t single out Christian fundamentalists. Looking forward to next part. As a group they proved vulnerable to deception by people they thought were on their side. REPORTED ACTIVITY. It was like we were driving on a huge belt of moving road travelling in the opposite direction at the same speed, cancelling all our progress. When will Mauna Loa start go go alkaline? I remember that report. But those steam vents … The Wrangell Volcanic Zone is not overly active. As offtopic, and also on the “fires” topic, sad to see the massive fires in Australia. Come back next week to read about reluctant subduction, building America, and the flood that brought the rain. The physics of global warming is most definite on the science side! Mount Bona, in the adjacent St Elias mountain, is the tallest US volcano, beating such giants as Mauna Loa. The Wrangell Mountains are immediately east of this gap, and are a bit in-land, as a clearly separate mountain range. It’s predictions made over a year ago have come to pass. It is akin to detecting a new type of signal from the Earth’s interior that indicates a dramatic movement of molten rocks before the eruption. Mount Churchill may have had a third, much smaller explosion 300 years ago which gave rise to a tephra deposit. But there is no indication for this. Mount Wrangell has an impressive summit caldera which measures 4 by 6 km, filled with 1-km thick ice. https://res.mdpi.com/d_attachment/climate/climate-06-00062/article_deploy/climate-06-00062.pdf, https://www.researchgate.net/publication/276497853_Late_Twentieth-Century_Warming_and_Variations_in_Cloud_Cover. I see them as victims, who were hijacked. Currently Mauna Loa is considered to be in its shield stage, I am not sure if magma is more alkaline or not but it remains well within the tholeeitic range. Two of the rim craters show a vapour column. The volcanoes grew on top of an already highly elevated range.
