Ash emission from Cotopaxi on 9 Oct 2015
Ash emission from Cotopaxi on 9 Oct 2015
During the past days, intermittent explosive activity has resumed at the volcano's summit crater. Intense activity on 8 and 9 Oct generated ash plumes that rose up to 1-1.5 km height above the crater and drifted to the west.

Glow from Cotopaxi's crater this morning
Visible activity of the volcano has been relatively low during the past week. Only a strong steam plume mixed with low ash contents has been emitted, but there has been a significant change: incandescence has now become visible from the crater. According to scientists from IGEPN, the glow originates from high-temperature gasses. However, this suggests that magma continues to approach the vent, and that the eruption might now be about to become magmatic. alles lesen
