Erebus volcano news & activity updates:

Erebus volcano (Antarctica): elevated activity, explosions

Monday Dec 08, 2014 09:27 AM | BY: TOMPFEIFFER

Seismic recording from Mt. Erebus on 5 Dec 2014
Seismic recording from Mt. Erebus on 5 Dec 2014
The Mount Erebus Volcano Observatory (MEVO) reported yesterday that "it has been an active time for the last 24 hours. There were 6 significant eruptions which show up nicely on the MACZ (short period single vertical component) seismometer.
... There is no knowing if this will continue or was just a one off. It does show that gas is accumulating somewhere at depth and migrates to the lava lake as a big bubble where it bursts explosively sending volcanic bombs shooting above the lava lake and sometimes out onto the crater rim where people may be working."
