Marshmellows Needed Near Tonga

Posted by pwl on March 19, 2009

Thanks to TSK for the this link to today’s fiery volcano.

Scientists sailed on Thursday to inspect an undersea volcano that has been erupting for days near Tonga, shooting smoke, steam and ash thousands of feet into the sky above the South Pacific ocean. (March 19)

Crazy maniacs risk their lives chasing down a LIVE VOLCANO as it erupts. Well I guess they didn’t quite make it into the Darwin Awards yet. Cool, er, hot show! Hey, where are your marshmallows? You mean to say that you went to all that risk going near an active volcano and didn’t bring your marshmallows? You really are crazy!

At least these people have their priorities right, they brought marshmallows to the volcano and some “tongas” too (tongs to hold them in the heat). Groan! Sorry, couldn’t resist.

This is a very interesting analysis with some very cool maps too of surface temperature anomalies. Isn’t it amazing how much there is to learn about climate science and our tiny planet earth? Wow…

Then over here at The Big Picture they have stunning photos (as seen above) and an interactive google map of the area. Talk about sweet.
