Tungurahua volcano (Ecuador) activity update: steaming, weak seismic activity
mercredi oct. 03, 2012 10:05 | AUTEUR : T
Current seismic signal from RETU station (IG)
Activity remains low at the volcano which is almost constantly covered in clouds.
Only few quakes and long-period events are recorded, but there are no reports of explosions and no significant SO2 emissions were visible on recent satellite data.
lundi, oct. 01, 2012
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. [details]
mercredi, sept. 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.
jeudi, sept. 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. [details]
mercredi, sept. 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]
jeudi, sept. 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]

One of the world's most famous volcanoes looming over the City of Naples
: In the afternoon of 17 Oct, a particularly violent explosion occurred at Anak Krakatau, blasting away a portion of the southern crater rim. A similar event might have been the final trigger for the catastrophic landslide that let the cone collapse and cause a devastating tsunami on 22 Dec 2018.
Private tours on Etna volcano
: Discover Europe's largest active volcano on private, guided 1-day tours. Tours can be customized for different interests and fitness levels.
Photos from Kamchatka
: Kamchatka in Russia's far east is one of world's remotest regions and has an almost unparalleled density of active volcanoes. Look at photos taken during our expeditions from this wonderful corner of the world!
