Volcanic Venting in California & Nevada?
I watched his video and a couple of related ones and I see what he means, when looking at the radar plots, but I wonder why nobody has seen these plumes in the flesh. And if this is as potentially serious as an imaginative mind can make up, how about sticking a few cameras up trained on the areas taking period snaps (or ones with motion sensing). Would make a nice day out.
Hi, I was just wondering if there is more info about this. I was at the American river yesterday and while sitting near some rocks my daughter showed me where there were bursts of warm water. It seemed that mostly one rock was the spot and even under the running river water, the rock was warm to the touch and every few seconds there would be a breath of warm water. I say breath because it came in a consistant patern like breathing. I have been looking for information on volcanic vents in that area, but couldn’t find anything and i found this site. could this be part of the venting that is supposedly taking place in the sierras? It is closer to Folsom that Shast? Any hints?
venzel, you could do a search for sinsedutch on the internet (this is the guy who first pointed this out online … he used to be dutchsinse) and see if he’s posted more on it. If not, he’d probably love to hear from you to add that to his information … it seems to be wonderful confirmation of what he is trying to convey … that there is some sort of activity going on.
FWIW, my husband has always monitored earthquakes on the USGS site, and Shasta has been having a lot more movement than usual.
Don’t confuse a volcanic vent with a hot spring…hot springs are very common, and occur where there is no volcanic activity. Also, if there had been the eruptions discussed back in July, IMO many thousands of people would have witnessed them as they flew through the area on commercial flights. Air traffic delays would have resulted from re-routing of flights to avoid ash plumes. It would have been a phenomenon too obvious to hide.
Hi, I was looking for hotsprings in the area when I can upon this site. I am a big fan of hotsprings . I could find no information what so ever on hot springs for that particular area and was looking to find more about the volcanic activity for the area. Hot springs are the result of volcanic activity, they are not hot if something isn’t warming them up.
thank you I will
I do not think anyonewas suggesting that there was a volcanic erruption in these areas. Perhaps a better term for what we are trying to describe would be a Fumarole
