Momotombo volcano (Nicaragua): continuing explosions of varying size
mardi mars 08, 2016 07:40 | AUTEUR : T
A spectacular explosion at Momotombo yesterday night
Small vulcanian explosion in daytime yesterday
The eruption of the volcano continues with little visible changes: Intermittent vulcanian-type explosions of mostly small, but sometimes moderate size continue to occur at rates of 1-2 per day (on average), the stronger ones showering the upper flanks of the cone with incandescent material and producing ash plumes that rise 1-2 km above the summit.
In addition, weaker activity of semi-persistent style also occurs. Continuous glow is visible from the crater at night. This is probably due to the presence of a small lava lake or (more likely) a small lava dome (more viscous lava), as well as frequent, but small (strombolian-type) explosions (that don't reach the outer rim) as INETER reported in its recent status update (53 explosions recorded during 3-4 March).
According to Nicaraguan scientists, seismic activity of the volcano has been at low to medium levels.
mercredi, mars 02, 2016
Two moderately strong explosions occurred during the past 24 hours at the volcano, covering the upper slopes of the cone with fresh lava bombs and producing ash plumes that rose approx 2 km. ...

Activity continues, but has been less vigorous during the past two days. A small explosion occurred yesterday morning. Incandescence remains visible at the crater at night.
lundi, févr. 29, 2016
The volcano continues to produce on average 2-3 vulcanian-type explosions per day. Some of them seem to generate small pyroclastic flows. ...
mercredi, févr. 24, 2016
Activity has been calmer during the past two days. No new significant explosions occurred in the interval, but incandescence remains visible at the summit crater, indicating small extrusive activity continues.
