Mild intermittent explosive activity continues at the volcano accompanied by effusive activity. A new lava flow, smaller than the ones in the first weeks, but still well alimented, has been active in the Cha caldera over the past days and advanced slowly approx. 1500 m west-southwest passing between Monte Beco and Monte Saia cones.

The island of Fogo consists of a single massive stratovolcano that is the most prominent of the Cape Verde Islands. Fogo is the most active volcano in the Cape Verde.

Beschreibung:

The roughly circular 25-km-wide island is truncated by a large 9-km-wide caldera that is breached to the east and has a headwall 1 km high. The caldera is located asymmetrically NE of the center of the island and was formed as a result of massive lateral collapse of the ancestral Monte Armarelo edifice. A very youthful steep-sided central cone, Pico, rises more than 1 km above the caldera floor to about 100 m above the caldera rim, forming the 2829 m high point of the island. Pico, which is capped by a 500-m-wide, 150-m-deep summit crater, was apparently in almost continuous activity from the time of Portuguese settlement in 1500 AD until around 1760. Later historical lava flows, some from vents on the caldera floor, reached the eastern coast below the breached caldera.
