The Volcano Adventure Guide: Excellent information and background for anyone wishing to visit active volcanoes safely and enjoyably. The book presents guidelines to visiting 42 different volcanoes around the world.
A small increase in volcanic-tectonic earthquakes was noted by INGEOMINAS' volcano observatory in Popayán. A total of 138 seismic events were recorded over the past week, out of 112 were volcanic-tectonic quakes and the remaining 26 events related to fluid movements inside the conduits (long-period quakes and one tremor pulse). ...

Following a nearby magnitude 4.5 earthquake at 06:07 local time on 9 Jan, a swarm of volcanic-tectonic quakes was detected at 12-16 km distance NE of the volcano and at approx 10 km depth. During the first day, more than 600 small quakes were recorded. The swarm decreased over the past days and no other (visual, deformation etc.) changes at the volcano were observed. [more]
Nevado del Huila, a massive stratovolcano, is the highest of Colombia's active volcanoes. It is built inside an older caldera and has an elongated N-S shape composed by a series of andesitic-dacitic lava domes and its summit areas are capped by ice. Until its recent awakening in early 2007, only a single 16th-century explosive eruption is recorded in historical time from this little known volcano. Two persistent steam columns rise from the central peak, and hot springs have been present.
Volcanic crisis at Sakurajima - updates: A strong earthquake swarm and increased inflation were detected in August 2015 and triggered authorities to raise the alert level, as volcanologists think that a larger eruption could follow. News and updates on the events can be found on this page.
Volcano Special Tours: We organize tours to particularly active volcanoes and during ongoing eruptions for extended observation time from various viewpoints. These trips, exclusively for very small groups, are often announced only at short notice and require fast travel and flexibility. Each trip is accompanied by a volcanologist from our team. Examples include: Kilauea (Hawai'i), Colima (Mexico), Krakatau and many others.
