The volcano on Anatahan erupted again over the weekend, spewing ash high into the atmosphere. The eruption subsided quickly, but fresh lava was spotted flowing from the volcano.
I recently saw a NOVA about volcano eruptions; the program discussed a new technique for predicting eruptions based on harmonic seismicity or something. I wonder if the geologists would be interested in studying Anatahan? The darn thing keeps erupting every couple months, I’m sure scientists wouldn’t mind coming to Micronesia for a little R & R – research and reporting.
