  • Comment: QPQ upon review, if I may.

  • Symbol question.svg This is what DYK should do: You ask did I know that there were mosses and volcanic activity in the Antarctic, and I reply genuinely, "Nope, didn't know that ... interesting." Anyways, the article meets newness and size requirements with > 5x expansion from 9/22 to 9/29. Article is also well written and makes appropriate use of citations. Earwig (here) indicated some potential (46.5%) of copyvio, but it doesn't look problematic to me, mostly just long citations and scientific nomenclature stuff. The hook is interesting, short enough, neutral, and supported by in-line citations. Just needs the QPQ. Cbl62 (talk) 23:34, 29 September 2020 (UTC)[]

sentence unclear[edit]

I couldn't figure out what to do with this statement: "and thus renewed eruptions would likely not impact any human habitations, regional environmental or even global climate impacts are possible." Does it mean that regional and global impacts are possibly even though human habitation impacts aren't, or that they also are not? -- JHunterJ (talk) 12:34, 5 October 2020 (UTC)[]

@JHunterJ:It means that there is no local population that could be impacted, but large eruptions may instead hit globally. Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk) 17:04, 5 October 2020 (UTC)[]
