Tungurahua volcano news & eruption updates:
Tungurahua volcano (Ecuador) activity update: steaming
Monday Oct 01, 2012 10:05 AM | AUTEUR : T
Seismic signal this morning from RETU station (IG)
Seismicity at the volcano remains moderate to low. Direct observations of summit activity are hindered by near constant cloud cover, but there are no indications of recent explosions or ash emissions.
Wednesday, Sep 26, 2012
Visual observations are near impossible due to constant cloud cover, but the seismic activity, described as moderate by IG, does not indicate significant eruptive activity. [details]
Thursday, Sep 20, 2012
A possible small ash emission was reported by VAAC Washington at 14:16 GMT today. No ash is visible on satellite images, and the seismic signal is very quiet with only a few small volcanic earthquakes.
Wednesday, Sep 19, 2012
Activity at the volcano has remained low. Steaming could be observed during windows of clear weather, and there are numerous long-period seismic events recorded. [details]
Thursday, Sep 13, 2012
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. ... [details]
Wednesday, Sep 12, 2012
The volcano remains relatively quiet, but direct observations are difficult to cloud cover. The seismic signal is low with some weak tremor pulses. [details]

Eruption from close
: On 17 Oct, explosions were particularly violent at Anak Krakatau. We show a series of images of a spectacular explosion captured from close range by boat.
Photos from Iceland
: Volcanoes in the land of fire and ice. Iceland is one of the volcanically most active places on earth.
