Copahue volcano news & activity updates

Copahue volcano (Chile/Argentina) activity update

Wednesday Nov 19, 2014 03:23 AM | BY: T

The volcano remains restless. Intermittent small to moderate ash emissions from the El Agrio crater and night-time glow continue to be observed at the volcano.
SERNAGEOMIN keeps the alert status at yellow, apparently because no other monitored parameters indicate more elevated activity to be expected soon.

Wednesday, Oct 08, 2014
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. ...
