– How many of the thousands of newly discovered volcanoes are pumping vast amounts of HEAT into the ocean? (Ice Age Now, Oct 7, 2014):
One also wonders “How many of these newly found thousands of volcanic seamounts are producing CO2 that bubble into the ocean?” – Meteorologist Anthony Watts
A newly created new map of the world’s seafloor shows thousands of previously uncharted mountains rising from the bottom of the ocean.
Most of these underwater mountains, known as seamounts, were once active volcanoes.
The researchers who created the map discovered that seamounts and earthquakes are often linked, and are usually found near tectonically active plate boundaries, mid-ocean ridges and subducting zones.
The map, published on Oct 2 in the journal Science, was compiled using data from the European Space Agency’s CryoSat-2 satellite and NASA’s Jason-1 satellite.
“One of the most important uses will be to improve the estimates of seafloor depth in the 80 percent of the oceans that remain uncharted or [where the sea floor] is buried beneath thick sediment,” say the researchers, who are affiliated with California’s Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) and other institutions.

“Thousands of undersea volcanoes just as you predicted,” says Ronald. With the recent global volcanic uptick what do bet many are currently active. Thanks for all your hard work. Your insight has helped so many prepare for what coming. God bless you.
