News from Ubinas volcano:
Ubinas volcano (Peru): new lava observed in crater, possible eruption today

The new lava inside the crater of Ubinas volcano (photo: IGP)
A pilot reported a possible ash plume at flight level 290 (29,000 ft, 9 km altitude) this afternoon, which would mean a significant eruption took place. However, this needs to be confirmed yet.
IGP in its latest press release confirmed the presence of new magma in the crater. This correlates well with the detected hybrid earthquakes and bluish gas emissions, as well as the thermal hot spot visible on satellite data since mid February.
The new lava forms a flat elongated dome about 30-40 meters long.
mardi, mars 04, 2014
According to the Geophysical Institute of Peru (IGP), magma has arrived near or at the crater of the volcano. This is indicated by a recent swarm of hybrid earthquakes and a weak thermal anomaly that has been detected at the summit during the past 3 weeks. ... [details]

The volcano could be in the process of entering a new eruptive phase. Two small (likely phreatic) explosions occurred last Friday at 13:46 and 14:45 h local time (18:46 and 19:45 GMT), ejecting plumes of ash and steam rising approx. 1.5-2 km. A strong sulfur smell was noticed in up to 5 km distance. ... [details]

Two small earthquake swarms occurred in January, the latest bulletin of the Peru's Geophysical Institute (IGP) reports. The first one happened between 8-9 Jan, and the second and stronger one on 25 Jan. In addition, bluish degassing (SO2, an indicator of the presence of magma) was observed. ... [details]

Surface and seismic activity have calmed down recently and are near background levels. [details]
vendredi, sept. 20, 2013
While the volcano has calmed down at the surface since the series of 9 phreatic explosions during 1-5 September, a pulse of volcanic tremor yesterday could indicate that the volcanic crisis is not over or even still at the beginning. ... [details]
