Last night the inhabitants of El Hierro were shaken by a series of earthquakes again, but all calmed down after an hour or so and the earthquakes were still rather deep.

Our faithfull commenter DFMorvan frequently adds plots to his place: http://eruptionelhierro.blogspot.fr/2012/07/density-plots-video-from-june-24th-to.html
The last video he uploaded to Youtube shows the density of the quakes till yesterday afternoon so it does not include last nights show.
We are still waiting what El Hierro has stored for us. And while we are waiting, i will try to explain the menu on Volcanocafe a little. But before that, here are the winners of the friday riddles by AlanC!
Henri le Revenant got Chiastolite a variation of Andalusite and Talla and Carl? got Swedenborgite! ( We need to ask AlanC again because Carl claims he did not earn a point.)
Here are 2 images of those minerals:
When Spica was made admin, i started resorting and renaming the menu and tried to stick with terms which would suit a coffe shack or a bar in a pirates ship. As long as I find, people here do not really make a lot of use of the information provided by VC, i will now explain, what you can find where, without having to use Google.
We will continue on to collect usefull links, papers and webcams, so please leave a comment if you have something you think is important, best on the page or post where it should be added.
Home: Thats the place where all new posts show up and where you end up when you only go to volcanocafe.wordpress.com. This is the most frequented place.
Welcome to Volcanocafe: was posted by Carl when the place first opened, you can find the idea behind all of this there, as well as some rules.
Treasury: This was started by me to help sorting the different topics.
It is a drop down menu, as you see.
International treasures: gives a list of vocano observatories outside Europe. Things are being added as they come up. I am not trying to collect all avaiable links worldwide, just those were some action is going on or is to be expected. Trying to have “all” would require checking tons of links ever so often and i just do not have the time for this.
Archive sorted by date published: selfexplaining
Archive sorted by topic: selfexplaining. Again i am not trying to store “all” links, same argumentation as above. But this was designed to help finding older posts, for whatever reason.
Wonder what Bob is up to: Gives links, and papers to monitor or understand what is going on around El Hierro better.
Wonder what is going on in Iceland: Same as above, but this time with links and papers for Iceland.
Wonder whats going on in Santorini: Here you can find links and papers if Santorini should decide to be more active again.
Italian Job: Tons of Etna webcams and links to observatories and other pages regarding volcanic action in Italy. ( This page really needs more dedicated work by me )
In case some action starts to happen in some other place, and we on VC watch it closely, another menu point will be added here, so not to overwhelm the other archive pages.
Gems: Another drop down menu, but with only 2 bars at the moment.
If you klick Gems directly, you end upon a page with beautiful images our readers took from webcams.
Gems without any relation to volcanoes: Here you could find how to change your avatar or how to make a video or a snapshot from a webcam or how to add a smiley
Library: Must-read books for volcanophiles can be found here.
Crow`s nest: Has 2 bars in the drop down menu.
Volcano webcams: selfexplaining
Auroralinks: Is here because so many on VC love to watch auroras.
OT Regulars table: OT ( Off Topic ) posts goin here. Originally i wanted them to appear only in here and not in home, but i could not figure out how to get this fixed.
Burfell Dalek BBQ: Comments on the planning of a BBQ in front of a Heklacam went in there.This will be renamed or trashed soon. We could make it a place where people could arrange meetings like said BBQ or volcano-tours? What do you think?
I am hoping you will contribute to development ofthe blog and leave comments with links. I am always up for constructive criticism so just let me know if you have ideas.
