Popocatépetl last night (CENAPRED webcam)
Glow remains brightly visible at night. The rate of weak steam/gas/ash emissions was about 1 per hour since yesterday.
Donnerstag, Jan 31, 2013
The rate of emission has been about 1 per hour during 29-30 Jan. ... alles lesen
Dienstag, Jan 29, 2013
After a short, intense peak 3 days ago, the rate of emissions has fallen to 8 during 27-28 Jan (1 every 3 hours). However, gas (SO2) emission remains strong and glow at the summit indicates continuing slow magma supply. ... alles lesen
Montag, Jan 28, 2013
Emission numbers dropped drastically during yesterday and are down to 1 per hour, but degassing remains intense and glow can be seen at the summit. alles lesen
Sonntag, Jan 27, 2013
Activity continued to increase. No less than 137 emissions, twice as many as during the previous day, were counted during 25-26 Jan. A large SO2 plume is drifting from the volcano. ... alles lesen
Samstag, Jan 26, 2013
The number of gas/steam/minor ash emissions has jumped from rates of less than 1 every 2 hours during most of the past days to about 3 per hour (65 between 24-25 Jan). CENAPRED describes them of low to medium intensity and has observed continuing incandescence at the summit. alles lesen
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.
