La Palma volcano update: Eruption now dominantly effusive
Sat, 16 Oct 2021, 05:2505:25 AM | BY: T
Explosive activity, the lava fountaining in particular, has decreased a lot and often is absent. The eruption has "switched" to be dominantly effusive; this could mean that the magma richest in gas, usually at the top of a magma batch in the reservoir and erupted first, has been exhausted by now.
