All About Limnic Eruptions

Geol 105“Limnic eruptions are a rare, but potentially deadly class of natural disaster, in which toxic gases are rapidly expelled from a saturated lake.  The gas, in observed cases was carbon dioxide, which was unevenly distributed in the lake, causing part of the water to be saturated.  Volcanically active regions are particularly prone to this, as a eruptions may leave depressions for lakes to form in.  Once the lake is formed, volcanic gases, such a CO2 or methane can seep into the water, and begin to accumulate in the cooler bottom waters, due to the higher saturation point than that of the warmer water above. . . . “ (more)

Lake FUBAR Booms Night and Day

Like the beat beat beat of the tom-tom
When the jungle shadows fall
Like the tick tick tock of the stately clock
As it stands against the wall . . .

Tropical Storm CARLOS Public Advisory < updates


Texas gets a coastal warning – NOAA Advisory

STORM SURGE:  The combination of a storm surge and the tide will
cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising
waters.  The water could reach the following heights above ground if
the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide...

Upper Texas coast...2 to 4 feet
Western Louisiana coast...1 to 2 feet

The deepest water will occur along the immediate coast near and to
the right of the landfall location.  Surge-related flooding depends
on the relative timing of the surge and the tidal cycle, and can
vary greatly over short distances.
