Underwater volcanoes pose tsunami threat  

– July 28, 2005 –  Seventy five previously unknown underwater volcanoes between New Zealand and Tonga pose a tsunami threat, warns Australian geologist Professor Richard Arculus. "If any one of these underwater volcanoes either explosively erupts or collapses in a sudden movement, it would have a massive impact on the ocean, triggering a tsunami which could devastate communities across the region."  


There is evidence from new high-resolution images of these volcanoes that 
these events have happened many times in the past.”

“It is ironic that we know far more about the topography of Mars and the 
Moon than about Earth, simply because much of our planet is covered in 
water," says Arculus.

Supervolcano could trigger tsunami, 
says second scientist
 

1 Apr 2005 – According to Ray Cas, a vulcanologist with Monash University in Melbourne, a super-volcano could pump enough basalt into the ocean to cause a tsunami. 

Question: Couldn’t this also heat the oceans? If you’ve read Not by Fire but by Ice, you know that I say that this would lead us into the next ice age. Warmer seas will pump huge amounts of moisture into skies that have been dramatically cooled by the ash – and bingo! – instantaneous ice age.
