The Egyptian geologist, Abbas Sharaki, clarified an issue that the Spanish authorities are studying, focusing on the explosion of the La Palma volcano after 56 days of its activity, and whether this will lead to extinguishing it and stopping the destruction that it leaves behind.
Dr. Abbas Sharaki said, in an interview with RT: “After 56 days have passed since the activity of the La Palma volcano, the Spanish authorities are studying its explosion to put out its eruption in an attempt to stop the destruction and terror experienced by the population there, by bombing it in the air or placing a quantity of dynamite around it and detonating it to destroy the tubes carrying lava. volcanic eruption.”
The expert added: “La Palma Island is one of the eight volcanic Canary Islands, and was formed from volcanic activity 1.8 million years ago, and dozens of volcanoes and hundreds of craters and volcanic corridors emerged from it, and gas emissions and lava are currently coming out through a group of craters that increase in number over time.”
He explained: “The explosion of the volcano may increase its activity and make it more eruptive (like a wounded lion) because the magma is at great depths in a boiling state and wants to come out to the surface and be prevented by the old hardened volcanic rocks, and in the event of the explosion of the volcano area, new cracks may arise from which new magma will be released, Or the existing channels increase and become more connected to each other, and the direction of the lava may change towards new places, increasing the losses.”
The expert pointed out that “despite the damage that is happening now from the La Palma volcano, it is part of a natural ecosystem on the surface of the earth, we know part of it and we do not know much about it. The environment in the atmosphere where carbon dioxide increases the temperature, while the exit of sulfur dioxide helps reduce it.”
Sharaki said: “The current volcanic activity has become a great tourist attraction for those who want to watch and meditate on volcanic activity, hear the sound and watch the flow of shells and volcanic dust in the air, which sometimes reaches a height of more than 10 km, and see rivers of fire running on the surface of the earth for a distance of 6 km, And waterfalls of lava falling into the ocean waters, causing great sounds and interactions with the water, and the formation of new volcanic deltas that would later be the most fertile agricultural soil.
