Tungurahua Volcano (Ecuador): volcanic activity falls

jeudi sept. 13, 2012 10:05 | AUTEUR : T

Tungurahua Volcano with little surface activity in the crater. In the crater was observed the presence of a non-permanent and little plume of steam and gas energy of about 100 meters high and westward movement direction. There have been no reports of ash fall, or the generation of noise and bellows. Image taken on the afternoon of September 11, 2012. Source: IGEPN

After the sharp increase in volcanic gas emissions (SO2) and abundant presence of seismic signals related to internal movement of fluids recorded earlier this month of September, activity from Tungurahua volcano has declined markedly since 4 September and presently has seismicity with moderate to low levels, and occasionally some small steam emissions. A drastic reduction in SO2 emission rates recently is one of the most significant observations.
Also, the deformation measurements stopped to show a tendency of gradual inflation, suggesting build-up of internal pressure and are now oscillating between in- and deflation, suggesting a drop in internal pressure.
There have been no explosions nor ash falls in the last week. Furthermore, nearly 2 weeks have passed since the last recorded volcano-tectonic earthquakes were felt in the area. There is no new evidence to suggest the possibility of ascent of new magma pulses as interpreted in the report No. 5 from 30 August.
The intense degassing of the first 4 days of September may have been caused by the intrusion that ended at the end of August. The current observations and parameters indicate a steady decline in pressure and very little activity on the surface.

IG reported that during 29 August-4 September visual observations of Tungurahua were often limited due to cloud cover. Moderate seismicity was detected during 29-30 August and a few earthquakes were felt by residents. On 30 August steam plumes with low ash content rose 500 m above the crater and drifted W. ...
