Onset of volcanic tremor during the evening of 22 Aug
Onset of volcanic tremor during the evening of 22 Aug
The eruption continues with similar activity as during the past days, with a gradually increasing trend. Accompanied by near-continuous tremor, the volcano now produces almost constant, dense ash plumes rising up to 2 km and drifting into westerly directions, reaching the Pacific Ocean.
The current phase of near-continuous emissions started during the night 22-23 Aug, when volcanic tremor appeared suddenly at 21:41 local time. The next day, after 18 hours, 2 mm of new brown ash fall had accumulated on the western side in the Cotopaxi National Park.
During yesterday, a gradual increase in tremor and seismic energy were detected, corresponding probably to increasing internal pressure, and an increase in the volume of magma rising towards the surface. The height of the ash emissions also gradually increased to approx. 2 km.
Today, tremor has slightly decreased, but remains at similar levels as yesterday.
