I check it from time to time. Looks like it's had a makeover since my last visit. Much improved.
Thanks.

Do we give Trump or Biden the credit? <smile>

One thing for sure, Super spreader Joe has it going on down at the border.

What a politically self inflicted disaster he has made. Good thing thing the totally qualified California girl of color, Harris is off the the rescue. SHEESH!!!

I need to get to Wisconsin and plant mu garden - it'll be bigger this year more than ever.

I've built a fairly good stock of canned goods.

Need to buy a truck load of toastitos and we make Artisan homemade bread weekly.

Thinking about doing a water turbin power electrical generator: I have an artesian well/creek that flows all year round. Gushes water at 52 degrees summer of winter.

They pulled off a pretty good tag team move with that last "election", didn't they?

Where's Rudy?

While Easter egg hunting today keep an eye out for Hunter's laptop.

From the paper highlighted at 2:50
"...substantial free core nutation disturbance..."

Depending on how "substantial", it's a description of crustal displacement.


nu·ta·tion - noun
a periodic variation in the inclination of the axis of a rotating object.

There goes Soufriere...St Vincent, Virgin Islands (Grenadines).
30,000 ft.



The first historical eruption of the volcano took place during 1718; it and the 1812 eruption produced major explosions. Much of the northern end of the island was devastated by a major eruption in 1902 that coincided with the catastrophic Mont Pelée eruption on Martinique. A lava dome was emplaced in the summit crater in 1971 during a strictly effusive eruption, forming an island in a lake that filled the crater prior to an eruption in 1979. The lake was then largely ejected during a series of explosive eruptions, and the dome was replaced with another.

It is a stratovolcano with a crater lake. Violent eruption occurred in 1718, 1812, and 1902. The 1902 eruption killed 1,600 people. There were also eruptions in 1971-1972 and 1979. The 1979 eruption started with less than 24 hours of precursor activity. The first episode lasted less than two weeks. It was vulcanian in character and sent steam and tephra as high as 12 miles (20 km). The second episode consisted of the quiet extrusion of a basaltic andesite lava dome. People were successfully evacuated and there were no fatalities.



Soufriere of the island of St. Vincent is about 180 miles (300 km) south of the volcano with the same name on Guadeloupe. However, Soufriere on St. Vincent is a far more dangerous volcano. Soufriere St. Vincent is the northernmost and youngest volcano on St. Vincent Island. The 1.6-km wide summit crater, whose NE rim is cut by a crater formed in 1812, lies on the SW margin of the 2.2-km-wide Somma crater, which is breached widely to the SW as a result of slope failure.

At 0:06:31 -
Tamitha is surprised and somewhat concerned that sunspot cycle 25 has remained weak for so long...leaving little time to peak. Weaker cycles with North/South hemispheres out of sync have a greater tendency to produce "big events" than do stronger cycles.
(Rolf Witschze [R.I.P] has stated that the Northern solar hemisphere has shut down...3 yrs ago. We'll see.)
A weaker cycle has lower baseline flux maintaining lower relative coronal stability which allows for development of greater magnetic complexity due to the differential rotation, so magnetic disturbances such as sunspots and filaments can be more "expressive" when they destabilize.
Likely fewer, but bigger potential events.

Soufriere is on THE list of volcanoes that pose the greatest global threat.

the ash adds iron to the ocean. Phytoplankton needs iron for photosynthesis, so ash acts like a fertilizer of sorts, resulting in phytoplankton blooms, which are the base of the food chain. It is good for fish stocks and marine mamals that feed on them.
