Geologists have come to the conclusion that the volcanic emissions, which in the past formed the Hawaiian Islands, are still active to this day, continuing to create new islands. However, for the emergence of a new island requires at least 100 000 - 300 000 years.
According to Cecilia Volt geofizka of the University of Hawaii, emission of lava from the Earth's mantle about 75 million years ago led to the formation of the Hawaiian Islands. However, one of lava to form the array was not enough, at the same time in the region are active volcanoes, which have continued ejection of matter, who later Read more [...]
In 1998, the length of the fire flows volcano Nyamlagira was ten kilometers
Jeopardized the Virunga National Park, which is moved in the direction of lava flows. In the Democratic Republic of the Congo erupted the most active volcano in Africa Nyamlagira. His awakening was recorded at dawn on Saturday, December 2. Coming out of the crater lava flows moved to the Virunga National Park. The situation is complicated by the fact that the path of the river of fire is the area of rare chimpanzees. This species, which currently employs 40 individuals, are threatened with extinction.
