Screenshot of a video from 3 Dec looking at the erupting vent in Copahue's crater (Robin Campion, Univ. Mexico)
A recent video by Robin Campion (Univ. Mexico) shows that the activity at the volcano is now magmatic in nature, i.e. fresh magma is being erupted as a small jet of mostly finely fragmented incandescent ash: ...more

Ash emissions from Copahue volcano on 6 Oct 2014 (SERNAGEOMIN)
A new phase of ash emissions began on the evening of 4 Oct. The volcano started to emit near continuous ash plumes, interrupted by strong degassing phases, from the active El Agrio crater. Seismic activity according to SERNAGEOMIN has been low suggesting that the origin of the new eruptions is phreatic, i.e. driven by steam explosions rather than fresh magma rising to the surface. ...more [read all]

Copahue volcano, quiet at the surface, today (SERNAGEOMIN webcam)
SERNAGEOMIN raised the alert level of the volcano to orange yesterday after an increase in seismic activity. A pulse of volcanic tremor was detected that could indicate magma moving into the volcano's plumbing system. ...more [read all]
Wed, 12 Mar 16:06
The volcano continues to show signs of unrest. A swarm of volcanic-tectonic earthquakes occurred the day before yesterday. SERNAGEOMIN keeps the alert level of the volcano at Yellow.
