Volcanism and seismicity with climate change
« on: May 17, 2015, 08:05:51 PM »
Since there is no discussion yet, i open it with this post from WAPO (2014).

Science explains why volcanoes are erupting all over the place right now
http://www.washingtonpost.com/posteverything/wp/2014/09/29/science-explains-why-volcanoes-are-erupting-all-over-the-place-right-now/

Additionally, McGuire a volcanologist, noted possible connections about earthquakes (video), and cautioned

Quote
Modelling suggests that as the ice cap continues to melt, so there will be a measurable increase in volcanic activity

Based on past changes, it appears that with the increase of sea level rise, that we can expect a response from the Earth's crust in the future.

Your may wish to look at the following linked thread (also on this topic), in the Science folder:

Some discussion on the topic of this thread at about 42: 00

Life's not that short! :D

The discussion is only a minute or so starting at about minute 45 which you can jump to.

But basically, yeah, there's a relationship between fluctuations of icesheets and volcanism.

OK, sorry - I thought I'd have to endure 45 minutes before the meat. :)

Now there's a nasty feedback.  Glaciers melt, land rises, volcanoes erupt, melting more glaciers....

New Iceland study.

People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it.
