Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update
Saturday Apr 27, 2013 16:20 PM | BY: T
The effusive eruptive activity continues to increase slowly. Two branches of the lava flow advanced to 500 m length towards the Ceniza and 400 m length to the Taniluyá canyon. Rockfalls from the flow fronts produce incandescent avalanches that reach the vegetation line.
At the summit, strombolian activity has been weaker today, but continues with infrequent small explosion that eject bombs to 100 m height and produce small ash plumes.
Saturday, Apr 27, 2013
Activity has been increasing. Continuous stronger tremor today suggests an increase in effusion rate today. In INSIVUMEH's report from yesterday, the new lava flow was 400 m long and produced small avalanches towards the Ash Canyon. The number of explosions rose to 17, producing gray ash plumes rising 600 m above the crater and drifting 8-10 km to the west and SW. They were accompanied by weak rumblings and locomotive-like degassing sounds. Incandescent material was seen rising 100-200 m at night. [more]
Thursday, Apr 25, 2013
This morning, a new lava flow emerged from the crater and started to flow down the southern flank towards the Trinidad canyon, reaching a length of 300 meters. Explosions continue and produce ash plumes rising to 4-4.2 km altitude (300-500 m above the crater), generating weak to moderate rumbling avalanches. INSIVUMEH warns that this activity could increase towards a more intense eruptive phase in the coming days, with larger explosions, and possibly pyroclastic flows. ...
Monday, Apr 22, 2013
An increase in strombolian activity has been observed. Explosions eject incandescent material to 100-150 m height and creates avalanches when falling back onto the slopes. ... [more]
Saturday, Apr 20, 2013
Activity has been low, with only few (less than 10) small to moderate explosions observed during most days. [more]
Sunday, Apr 14, 2013
Activity has remained relatively low. Only few explosions were observed during yesterday, generating fine ash plumes rising up to about 800 m. [more]

Dallol hot springs
: One of the most bizarre landscapes on earth: Dallol is a vast and very active hydrothermal field creating a colorful array of hot springs, small geysers, salt towers, colorful lakes and ponds in the middle of the deepest part of the Danakil desert and the Karum salt lake.
