Nevados de Chillán volcano (Chile): new ash emissions

Eruption of Nevados de Chillan volcano yesterday
Eruption of Nevados de Chillan volcano yesterday
A small eruption occurred at the volcano again yesterday, the first activity since the mild explosive activity on 7 February. Starting around noon, the volcano began to emit a steam plume of variable intensity, sometimes mixed with ash. The activity took place at one of the new craters that had formed in early February.
According to SERNAGEOMIN, seismicity and other monitored parameters had shown little fluctuations during most of February, but then started to increase at the end of the month, possibly related to a slowly ascending body of magma. Yesterday's new activity is likely the result of this and could be a precursor of more activity in the near to medium future.

New seismic monitoring equipment has recently been installed by Sernageomin near Chillán volcano, one of Chile's most active volcanoes. First results of the monitoring confirmed that volcanic earthquakes - including some that are felt by local population - are common and frequent at the volcano, something that had long been known but never actually been measured. ... read all
