Volcano news: Pacaya (Guatemala)

Sat, 27 Dec 2014, 15:49
INSIVUMEH reported a week ago that activity decreased and that there are currently no signs of explosive activity from the Mackenney crater. Only a steam and gas plume is being emitted.
Fri, 14 Nov 2014, 07:10
Current seismic signal (PCG station, INSIVUMEH)
It seems new strombolian explosive activity has started around 10-11 November from the Mackenney crater. ...mehr [alles lesen]
Tue, 27 May 2014, 15:33
The volcano remains quiet. INSIVUMEH reports only a continuous degassing plume reaching about 50 m above the crater.
Fri, 18 Apr 2014, 08:06
INSIVUMEH only reports steaming and internal tremor, but no visible eruptive activity from the Mackenney crater at the moment.
Thu, 10 Apr 2014, 16:41
Current seismic signal from Pacaya (PCG station, INSIVUMEH)
Weak sporadic explosions have resumed at the Mackenney crater. Fine ash plume were observed rising to 2,6 km altitude and drifting approx. 1 km to the S and SW. The seismic signal shows continuous tremor and weak explosion signals.
Mon, 10 Mar 2014, 09:53
According to INSIVUMEH, lava continues to flow from the vent (on the western base of the cone?), but is mostly inside small lava tubes. Strombolian activity at the summit vent seems to have decreased or ceased.
Wed, 5 Mar 2014, 17:25
Current seismic signal from Pacaya (PCG station, INSIVUMEH)
While lava flow effusions probably has stopped, weak and sometimes moderate strombolian explosions continue at the summit vent, producing small ash plumes rising 100-150 m.
Tue, 4 Mar 2014, 12:26
This morning's seismic signal from Pacaya (PCG station, INSIVUMEH)
Eruptive activity continues at reduced intensity as the seismic signal indicates. As of yesterday, INSIVUMEH reported still active flows from the vent at the western base of the Mackenney cone. Their length was between 1300-1600 m and they reached the southern base of the cone. Weak explosions were observed at the summit vent.

The latest eruptive phase of the volcano continues at decreased strength. The second paroxysm of Pacaya this year, only about 6 weeks after the previous one in January, started yesterday morning with lava fountains, associated ash emissions, as well as a new lava flow that quickly reached about 2 km length. ...mehr [alles lesen]

Seismic signal from Pacaya today (PCG station, INSIVUMEH)
A new phase of increased activity at the volcano began today. Strombolian explosions became more intense, ejecting incandescent bombs to approx. 200 m above the crater, and since this morning, a new lava flow started to descend from the summit on the western flank. The activity surge is reflected by a strong, gradual increase of tremor.
