Warnings of Merapi MEGA eruption

Could lead to an ice age

5 Nov 10 - "An unprecedented magma reservoir lurks underneath Merapi," says Birger Lühr, a volcano researcher at the GFZ in Potsdam, Germany.

"A rough estimate indicates that there is three times more magma than what was ejected by the Indonesian volcano Tambora in 1815 – the biggest eruption in the last 10,000 years, which led to a cooling of the climate globally.

Such an eruption could trigger the next ice age, I fear.

The Tambora eruption caused "The Year Without A Summer" of 1816, when it snowed every month of the year in Vermont. Farmers called it "Eighteen-hundred and froze to death." 

 


Though geoscientists aren’t sure what to make of this huge magma reservoir, Der Spiegel reports that geologists are warning of a “Mega-Eruption”

‘We can only speculate what the volcano will do,’ says Birger Lühr. "Merapi is hardly predictable."
