Popocatepetl volcano news & eruption update

Popocatépetl volcano (Central Mexico) activity update

Dienstag Aug 18, 2015 13:59 | VON: T

Glow from Popocatépetl at night during a phase of more vigorous degassing
Glow from Popocatépetl at night during a phase of more vigorous degassing
Activity at the volcano, relatively low at the moment, has remained more or less unchanged. Lava is slowly being extruded in the inner summit crater and occasionally produces small explosions and less vigorous degassing events ("exhalations").
CENAPRED reported yesterday: "In the last 24 hours the seismic records of the survillance system of Popocatepetl volcano registered 9 very-low-intensity exhalations. Through mounted cameras on the volcano, the cloudy conditions not allow to observe the volcano continuously, and it was noticed that some of these were along with emissions of steam and gas.
Overnight slight incandescence was observed over the crater increasing when some of main exhalations (image). ...
Other monitoring parameters remain unchanged."

The activity at the volcano has remained more or less unchanged over the past months. During the past days, explosive activity has been a bit higher than average, but alert level remains unchanged at Yelled phase 2. ... [mehr]
Donnerstag, Jun 04, 2015
CENAPRED reported that during 20-26 May the seismic network at Popocatépetl recorded 40-307 daily emissions consisting of water vapor, gas, and sometimes ash; cloud cover often prevented visual observations. ... [mehr]

Activity has remained essentially unchanged. Intermittent small to moderate explosions occur from the volcano's summit crater, where slow magma extrusion continues to accumulate in a moderately viscous, flat dome. ... [mehr]

Mittwoch, Mär 04, 2015
The activity of the volcano remains at fluctuating, but overall similar levels as during the past months. An increase in tremor yesterday probably corresponded to a phase of active dome growth, accompanied by bright glow visible at the crater and intense degassing and light ash emissions reaching 1500 m height. ...

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.
