Elbrus Threatens to Erupt
Mount Elbrus

The highest mountain in Europe, volcano Elbrus can erupt in the 21st century, Russian scientists from Moscow State University say, but not before 2060.
      Scientists found a colony of true mosses at Elbruss summit 5621 meters above sea level. Temperature at this place was +21 degrees Centigrade, while air was about 20 degrees and even colder. Such anomaly signaled about active volcanic processes, taking place inside the dormant volcano.
      Researchers also mention other signs of postvolcanic activity of the mountain: emission of fumarolic gases and lots of thermal springs. However, scientists believe that eruption of mount Elbrus wont happen soon, because the dormant volcano doesnt show signs of immediate eruption. The mountain will sleep for several tens of years, researchers say.
