Fuego volcano (Guatemala): 5th paroxysm in 2016

Sunday Mar 27, 2016 12:05 PM | AUTEUR : T

Lava fountains from Fuego during the night 25-26 Mar 2016
Lava fountains from Fuego during the night 25-26 Mar 2016
During the past week, activity at the volcano gradually increased into the 5th paroxysm in 2016, generating pulsating lava fountains, lava flows and possibly pyroclastic flows.
After the previous such episode in early March, the volcano had continued to produce its typical, persistent, but intermittent strombolian activity. The latter started to become more and more intense from around 22 March, and became near-constant during 24-25 March.
At least two lava flows of 1000 and 1700 m length formed on the upper western (Santa Teresa gully) and southeastern slope (Las Lajas ravine). Ash plumes rose to altitudes of approx. 5000 m and drifted up to approx. 160 km to the west over the Pacific Ocean.

Wednesday, Mar 02, 2016
The activity of the volcano continued to increase into its 4th paroxysm (called "eruption" by local press) of 2016. Lava effusion rate increased gradually and continued to feed the lava flow on the eastern side into the Las Lajas ravine, where it reached approx 600 m length yesterday and started to produce small pyroclastic flows (by collapse of parts of the flow on the steep slope). ...

Tuesday, Mar 01, 2016
Activity at the volcano is again increasing and a new lava flow started to travel down the upper eastern flank since yesterday evening. The previously (normal) mild strombolian activity at the summit vents is also increasing, and it seems that the volcano could be in for yet another paroxysm in the coming days. ... [details]
