Canlaon Volcano (Philippines): Activity update

07:05 AM | BY: MATTHEW
PHIVOLCS recorded 4 volcanic earthquakes beneath Canlaon volcano over the past 24 hours. Moderate emission of white steam-laden plumes that rose 500 meters before drifting northwest and northeast was observed. Sulfur dioxide (SO2) emission was measured at an average of 1012 tonnes/day on 02 August 2020. GPS measurements indicate slight inflation of the lower and mid slopes since May 2020, while the southeastern flanks recorded inflation on the lower to mid slopes that began on June 21, 2020. PHIVOLCS state that these parameters may indicate hydrothermal or magmatic processes occurring beneath the edifice.

DOST-PHIVOLCS recorded two volcanic earthquakes beneath Kanlaon volcano over the past 24 hours. There is continued long term edifice inflation which has been occurring since 2017, while in the short-term, the southeastern flanks recorded slow inflation of the lower slopes since May 2019 and pronounced inflation of the upper slopes in the end of January 2020. According to DOST-PHIVOLCS, these indicators suggest that hydrothermal or magmatic activity is occurring deep beneath the edifice. The current alert level is ALERT LEVEL 1 read all
