Sheepy Dalek – Name that Lava XIV

Last week gave no changes in the top, we still have a mighty quintuple in the lead. Let us see if someone this week will be able to pull ahead. Also, we have two new persons on the list, KarenZ and Cryphia got 2 points each.

This week we are asking you for the name of the volcano (1 point), name of both lavas in the picture (same person must give both lavas in the same answer (1 point) and the name of the longterm inhabitant at the top (1 point). So 3 points can be won.

The Score is:
3 Diana Barnes
3 Lughduniense
3 DFMorvan
3 Talla
3 Ursula
2 Doug Merson
2 Hattie
2 Schteve42
2 Birgit

Here comes the next instalmetn of  Evil Alan’s Riddle

For clarification, the part in italic is the actual riddle:
I’d a crazy idea to give another mineral riddle, but I couldn’t think of one this week!

And here are the two-part question that forms the answer:
What’s my more volcanic name? Where am I found?

Alan C

Personal note from Carl

As some of you know I am about to get married. For unfathomable bureaucratic reasons we can not obtain the necessary visa for this without Hailey going to her home country, and during that time I am not allowed to go abroad. Apparantly the wisdom of EU has decided that it should be forbidden for people who are applying for relationship visa to be together during the process. And to prevent that I have to stay put in Sweden.

This will take a staggering 6 to 8 weeks due to alarming bureaucratic efficiency.

So, it is with a sad heart I have to tell everyone that I can’t go anywhere this summer. In the end I am choosing my wife before volcanoes. I know that it is an odd choice…

    • Beeing historian of sorts, I declare this be VolcanoCafé´s! Purely used by Inkas for drinking their home brew and vatching Volcanoes. Makes sense does it not. No internet in those days and volcano lovers had go there in person. That is sacrifice, no? *cheers*

    • Umm… I think they need to check some of their data.

      Cerro Belén, at 78°30’S, 69°05’W, would be somewhere out on the ice cap of Antarctica.

      I think shielding themselves from a westerly wind would be the least of their worries.

      • 78°30′S, 69°05′W is under the ice-cap due south of the Andes. Suspect they mean 18°30′S, 69°05′W.

    Yeah Earthquake Report has interesting news about the above volcanoes.

        • Depending on how you see it.
          It is normal for the area with large quakes, and this will most likely kill people due to be close to the city of Antalya in Turkey. Otherwise there is not much worrying about it.
          We are not talking about a huge eruption, or even this being a pre-quake to something even larger.
          A faultline doing what it is best at, faulting.
          I do feel for those who are affected.

          • Ok, i just see the effect in Santorini and think in the impact on magma chamber, and this could help santorini enter in eruption…

  3. Update : Awaiting further news from the epicenter area and because the epicenter looks to be closer to the coast than initially expected, we have raised the Alert status of this earthquake to RED.
    Update : Based on the many reports readers, the highest intensity (shaking) values are reported from Calis, Oludeniz and Fethiye.

  4. I just found out about that earthquake on facebook.. from a friend who is on holiday there. He posted some pictures taken shortly after of dust rising over the hills near the hotel, apparantly he was only a few miles away from the epicentre.
