Satellite image showing the plume from Puyehue yesterday (thanks to Sergio Abarca Delgad ‏@sergio_raptor / Twitter)
A small emission of gas and some ash was reported by Buenos Aires VAAC. In fact, a diluted plume of gas, steam, and possibly some volcanic ash is visible on satellite images from yesterday and this morning. ...more

MODIS / Terra satellite image 14 Dec showing a plume drifting N from Puyehue
A significant ash(?) plume was spotted on Terra's satellite images yesterday afternoon. Since there are no other reports suggesting that a (larger in this case) eruption has occurred (e.g. heat signals, eyewitness reports, webcam), it seems likely that the plume was from wind-mobilized ash from the 2011-12 eruption. ...more [read all]

We reported a new eruption yesterday from Caulle volcano, but it soon turned out that the observed ash plume originated from very vigorous remobilization of ash deposits on the volcano. ...more [read all]

During the past week, the eruption from the Cordón Caulle rift zone continued at a low level, producing plumes rising 0.4-1.2 km above crater, drifting easterly and northerly directions. Incandescence was sometimes observed from the crater.

Based on seismicity detected during 6-13 March, OVDAS-SERNAGEOMIN reported that the eruption from the Cordón Caulle rift zone, part of the Puyehue-Cordón Caulle volcanic complex, continued at a low level. Plumes observed most days in web camera and satellite images rose 0.3-1.2 km above the crater and drifted 30-50 km NNE, E, and SW. Incandescence from the crater was observed during 5-8 and 10-13 March. The Alert Level remained at Red. ...more
