Thermal signal from Wolf volcano (MIROVA)
lunes, jun 22, 2015
The eruption that started 4 weeks ago continues strongly, but from the location of the origin of the thermal signal it seems that since around 13 June, the eruption has been occurring from vents inside the vast summit caldera rather than from the fissure vents that opened on the upper ESE flank on 25 May. ...

Fecha / HoraRevista / ProfundidadDistanciaUbicación
Volcán Wolf, straddling the equator on the northern end of Isabela Island is the highest volcano of the Galápagos archipelago. The 1710-m-high volcano has steeper slopes than most other Isabela volcanoes, reaching angles up to 35 degrees.

Background:

A 6 x 7 km caldera, at 700 m one of the deepest of the Galápagos Islands, is located at the volcano's summit. A prominent bench on the west side of the caldera rises 450 above the caldera floor, much of which is covered by a lava flow erupted in 1982.
Radial fissures concentrated along diffuse rift zones extend down the north, NW, and SE flanks, and submarine vents lie beyond the north and NW fissures. Similar unvegetated flows originating from a circumferential chain of spatter and scoria cones on the eastern caldera rim drape the forested flanks of the volcano to the sea. The proportion of aa lava flows at Volcán Wolf exceeds that of other Galápagos volcanoes. Wolf's 1797 eruption was the first documented historical eruption in the Galápagos Islands.
