Small explosion during the night 28-29 Dec
The rate of small explosions and steam-ash emissions remains at moderate levels with 1-2 events per hour (39 during 28-29 Dec). Glow remains visible at night.

Small explosion during the night 28-29 Dec
The rate of small explosions and steam-ash emissions remains at moderate levels with 1-2 events per hour (39 during 28-29 Dec). Glow remains visible at night.
Fr, 28 Dez 2012, 08:36
The number of gas, steam and sometimes ash emissions has dropped to only about 1-2 per hour, but otherwise, the volcano's activity remains unchanged.
Mi, 26 Dez 2012, 10:40
Crater glow on this morning
During 24-25 Dec, the number of emission (72) has risen again to about 3 per hour, and some of them were moderate in size and produced small ash plumes. ...mehr [alles lesen]

Filament on overnight crater 22 to 23 December
In the last 24 hours during 22-23 Dec, the number of emissions was 45, about 2 per hour, with several ones being comparably larger than during most of the past weeks. Ash emissions occurred yesterday at 17:17 h reaching a height of about 1 km above the crater of the volcano and drifting towards the northeast, another one at 17:42 h with a height of 2.5 km, and a third one at 17:49 h. ...mehr [alles lesen]
Fr, 21 Dez 2012, 11:05
Broadcast at 08:43 h
77 exhalations of low to moderate intensity occurred during 20-21 Dec, accompanied by emissions of steam and gas, and in some cases small amounts of ash. The most important was occurred today at 08:43 h and produced a column of gas and ash that rose 2 km above the crater and was also alerted of by VAAC Washington.
Do, 20 Dez 2012, 11:05
After increasing to 5 weak steam and sometimes ash emissions per hour during 17-18 Dec, the rate has dropped to about 3 per hour during 18-19 Dec. Glow remains visible at night.
Do, 20 Dez 2012, 11:05
After increasing to 5 weak steam and sometimes ash emissions per hour during 17-18 Dec, the rate has dropped to about 3 per hour during 18-19 Dec. Glow remains visible at night.
Di, 18 Dez 2012, 11:05
column of water vapor and gas
The number of weak emissions has further increased; there were 121 events, i.e. about 4 per hour. Most produced only puffs of steam and gas, and in some cases very small amounts of ash. Other monitoring parameters remain unchanged. During the night glow was observed in the crater. In the morning, a steam and gas plume was seen rising about 800 meters above the crater and drifting to the southeast.
So, 16 Dez 2012, 11:05
Weak emissions remain frequent (almost 3/hour) and low level volcanic tremor and 2 local earthquakes occurred during 15-16 Dec.

Background:

Volcán Popocatépetl, whose name is the Aztec word for smoking mountain, towers to 5426 m 70 km SE of Mexico City to form North America's 2nd-highest volcano.  The glacier-clad stratovolcano contains a steep-walled, 250-450 m deep crater.  The generally symmetrical volcano is modified by the sharp-peaked Ventorrillo on the NW, a remnant of an earlier volcano. 
At least three previous major cones were destroyed by gravitational failure during the Pleistocene, producing massive debris-avalanche deposits covering broad areas south of the volcano.  The modern volcano was constructed to the south of the late-Pleistocene to Holocene El Fraile cone.  Three major plinian eruptions, the most recent of which took place about 800 AD, have occurred from Popocatépetl since the mid Holocene, accompanied by pyroclastic flows and voluminous lahars that swept basins below the volcano.  Frequent historical eruptions, first recorded in Aztec codices, have occurred since precolumbian time.
