Chaitén volcano (Chile), activity update: continuing lava dome growth, ash eruptions

jueves ene 15, 2009 22:45 | POR: TS

It was reported that during 29 December-9 January Chaitén's lava dome continued to grow. Plumes rose to altitudes of 2.6-3.1 km. Block-and-ash flows from frequent spine collapses fell down from the edge.
On a flight it was seen that 9 January Domo Nuevo 1 and Domo Nuevo 2 filled up the 3-km-wide inner caldera. Activity was concentrated on the S part of Domo Nuevo 2. Argentine Airlines resumed flights into Esquel airport (about 120 km E) on 12 January, because of ash. Web camera views reported that on 10 and 12 January ash plumes continuously were rosing.
