No recent earthquakes
|Time||Mag. / Depth||Distance||Location|
The late-Pleistocene Los Gemelos scoria cones were constructed along the Calchaqui fault, NW of Salta. The basaltic trachyandesitic cones produced a lava flow about 35,000 years ago that traveled to the west and then was deflected south. Monogenetic cones at El Saladillo to the NW of Los Gemelos produced a lava flow that traveled to the SE and south.

Eruption from close
: On 17 Oct, explosions were particularly violent at Anak Krakatau. We show a series of images of a spectacular explosion captured from close range by boat.
Earthquakes near Volcanoes
: Our world-wide map continuously detects shallow earthquakes near volcanoes. These could be early signs of unrest and often precede eruptions.
: A physically active tour to visit and climb some of Indonesia's most active and famous volcanoes: Papandayan and Galunggung in West Java, Merapi in Central Java, Kelud, Semeru, Bromo, the Tengger caldera, and Ijen in East Java.
Volcanic Ash Advisory Centres
: Much current eruption news is provided by the 9 Volcanic Ash Advisory Centres (VAAC) distributed around the globe. The VAACs provide a vital service for aviation safety.
