Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update
Sunday Feb 03, 2013 10:39 AM | BY: TOMPFEIFFER
The two lava flows advanced a bit and have now a length of about 300 m. Explosive activity has been weak in return during the report interval 1-2 Feb. There were only 5 small explosions with plumes rising 400 m registered.
Friday, Feb 01, 2013
The effusion rate has again increased today. The old lava flow headed towards the Taniluyá canyon gained strength again and increased to 200 m length and a new flow started to flow towards the Ceniza drainage and reached 150 m length this morning. ...
Thursday, Jan 31, 2013
Both explosive and effusive activity have been low today. ...
Wednesday, Jan 30, 2013
Explosions have been becoming more frequent (now 12 during the past day vs a previous average of only 5). They produce light gray ash plumes drifting south and SE for about 5 km. The lava flow is still weakly active, but was only 150 m long this morning.
Tuesday, Jan 29, 2013
Explosive activity continues to be on the increase in favor of effusive. During yesterday-today, INSIVUMEH counted 6 explosions that produced gray ash plumes rising up to 800 m and spread fine ash to up to 7 km to the west and southwest. ...
Monday, Jan 28, 2013
Yesterday seems to have been a more "explosive" day at the volcano. INSIVUMEH reports 9 with ash columns up to 500 m height and drifting 6 km west and SW. As a response to the more explosive nature, it seems that the rate of effusion feeding the flow has dropped. The flow decreased to only 200 m length this morning.
