Tremor during the eruption of Piton de la Fournaise volcano (OVPF)
The most recent eruption (the second in 2015) ended during the evening of 30 May.
Tremor disappeared around 20:50, following a decreasing trend since 27 May. According to estimates of the volcano observatory, the eruption produced approx. 8 million cubic meters of lava during its 13 days of activity, a typical value for an eruption of Piton de la Fournaise in recent decades.
Interestingly, no significant deflation has been detected accompanying the eruption,- this means that it has not drained much of the magma chamber and that a new eruption, even in a short time from now, could be a realistic scenario.
