Soufrière Hills, Montserrat: volcano news & activity updates
Soufrière Hills volcano (Montserat), activity update: low activity of lava dome
Saturday Nov 03, 2007 18:03 PM | BY: TS
During 24-30 October the lava dome at Soufrière
Hills changed very little. Seismic activity was very low and low-level rockfall and pyroclastic flow activity continued.
During 25-26 October, vigorous lahar activity was noted, especially to the E, including the Tar River valley. Ashfall was visible over N Montserrat, possibly due to rockfall activity and steam venting.
On 30 October a small pyroclastic flow was observed in the Tar River valley. The Alert Level remained elevated at 4.

Montserrat Volcano Observatory reported that during 19-25 September the lava dome at Soufrière Hills changed only very little. Seismic activity was very low and low-level rockfall activity continued.

MVO reported that during 21-28 August the lava dome at Soufrière Hills changed very little, based on visual observations. Seismic activity was very low and low-level rockfall activity continued. On 23 August, heavy rainfall triggered small rockfalls and four pyroclastic flows to the E down the Tar River Valley. Ash and steam emissions from the dome produced a plume that drifted W. A lahar occurred in the Belham river valley to the NW. The Alert Level remained elevated at 4 (on a scale of 0-5).

Over the past days, lava-dome growth at Soufrière Hills was reduced or possibly paused. Small, intermittent pyroclastic flows occurred in the Tar River Valley.[more]

The lava dome at Soufrière Hills continues to grow, mainly on its NE side. Over the past week, pyroclastic flows mainly affected the sector from the ENE to the NW of the dome and traveled intermittently E down the Tar River Valley. Small flows (<500 m in length) occurred NW in Tyres Ghaut, and one flow was observed at the top of Farrell's Plain.[more]

During 2-9 March, lava-dome growth at Soufrière Hills continued and was concentrated on an E-facing lobe topped with blocky, spine-like protrusions. Rockfalls affected the E and NE flanks. Pyroclastic flows traveled 2 km and were confined E in the Tar River Valley. Heightened pyroclastic activity on 7 March resulted in an ash plume that rose to an estimated 2.4 km (8,000 ft) a.s.l. and drifted W. On 11 March, a pyroclastic flow traveled down the NE flank into White's Ghaut. On 12 March, a large, blocky spine leaned steeply towards the NE.

: In the afternoon of 17 Oct, a particularly violent explosion occurred at Anak Krakatau, blasting away a portion of the southern crater rim. A similar event might have been the final trigger for the catastrophic landslide that let the cone collapse and cause a devastating tsunami on 22 Dec 2018.
Stromboli volcano photos
: The lighthouse of the Thyrrhenian Sea - thanks to its typical, regular explosions that coined the term "strombolian activity", Stromboli is one of the most famous and photogenic volcanoes in the world.
Ethiopia and the Danakil
: Ethiopia is a very diverse and beautiful country. Thanks to our numerous expeditions to Erta Ale and Dallol
and beyond, we have an extensive collection of images showing the volcano's lava lake, the desert, the colorful hot springs of Dallol, the vast salt lakes, camel caravans and more.
