Tungurahua volcano (Ecuador) activity update
mercredi mars 05, 2014 18:10 | AUTEUR : T
Activity has decreased at the volcano. IGPEN characterizes it still as moderate, but there have been no new significant explosions.
dimanche, mars 02, 2014
The volcano had a short burst of activity on 26 Feb, producing a series of moderate explosions and small pyroclastic flows reaching up to 400 m on the northern and northwestern flanks. Ash plumes rose up to 2.5 km above the crater. Since then, the volcano has been mostly quiet and only had minor emissions. ... [details]
mardi, févr. 25, 2014
Activity continues an overall decreasing trend. The volcano has occasional explosions and ash emissions, typically 4-5 per day, which cause light ash fall, mostly in Pillate, Tisaleo and El Manzano to the S and SW. In between such emissions, the volcano is calm. Seismic activity is still significant, but also seems to be decreasing, the latest IGPEN report mentions. ...
lundi, févr. 24, 2014
Activity remains at moderate to high levels according to the Geophysical Institute (but is considerably lower than earlier this year). Occasional explosions produce ash plumes of approx 1-2 km height and light ash fall was reported from the Pillate sector yesterday. [details]
jeudi, févr. 20, 2014
Overall, the volcano's visible activity has continued to decrease with fewer and weaker explosions, although seismic activity remains moderate to high. The strongest explosion in the past days was one yesterday evening that produced an ash column rising 3 km, a powerful cannon-shot explosion sound. Bombs fell around the crater at distances of 500 m.

mardi, févr. 18, 2014
After the major eruptions on 1 Feb, the volcano continued to produce frequent (comparably) smaller explosions of strombolian to vulcanian type, sometime causing small pyroclastic flows. Ash falls have been mainly affecting areas in Penipe, south of the volcano. During the past days, activity has been decreasing overall. ... [details]

Fuego volcano photos
: One of Central America's most active volcanoes, Fuego in Guatemala is in near-permanent explosive eruption with intermittent phases of increasing activity that generate lava fountains, lava flows and pyroclastic flows.
Desert, Salt & Volcanoes
: Experience one of the geologically most active areas on the planet: the Danakil desert in northern Ethiopia. Highlights include Erta Ale volcano with its active lava lake and Dallol hydrothermal fields offering a surreal landscape of colors, salt, geysers and springs.
