Nevado del Ruiz volcano news & activity updates
Nevado del Ruiz volcano (Colombia) activity update
Monday Jan 13, 2014 16:32 PM | BY: T
SO2 plume from Nevado del Ruiz volcano (NOAA)
Seismic signal from Nevado del Ruiz today (OLL station, INGEOMINAS)
Over the past weeks, the volcano continued to have rather low seismic activity, mainly in the "usual" area S and SE of the Arenas crater at approx 8 km depth. At the surface, the volcano produces intense degassing with a plume sometimes reaching 1.5 km height.
Wednesday, Dec 18, 2013
Volcanic activity at the surface (degassing) and inside (earthquakes) has remained comparably low. ...
Monday, Oct 07, 2013
An earthquake swarm affected the volcano on 7 Oct, including a volcanic-tectonic quake of magnitude 2.7 at 3.2 km depth northeast of the Arenas crater. This could indicate that new magma has been rising into the shallow volcano's conduit, which might (or not) lead to new eruptive activity.
Saturday, Sep 14, 2013
The volcano has had a phase of increased degassing producing an important SO2 plume visible on satellite data. No reports of other unusual activity have become known.
Tuesday, Aug 13, 2013
Since the last update, the volcano has been relatively calm with only internal unrest in the form of fluctuating seismic activity. Manizales observatory reports a slight increase during the past week, with earthquakes clustered in the usual location (presumably an area of magma storage) about 3.5 km NE of the Arenas crater at depths between 4-7 km.
Friday, Jul 12, 2013
Starting from 11:43 local time on 11 July, a weak pulse of tremor accompanied by small ash emissions was reported by the Manizales observatory. The ash plumes rose to about 600 m. ...

Introduction to Plate Tectonics
: The Earth's upper, rigid layer is broken into several plates which are in constant motion to one another. Most earthquakes and volcanoes occur as result of these plate boundaries.
17 days volcano trekking
: This is one of our most exciting volcano tours! Halmahera, North Sulawesi and the Sangihe Islands are not only very scenic and interesting as well as nearly unspoiled by tourism, but also home to some of the country's most active (and often erupting) volcanoes, inclduing Dukono, Ibu, Lokon, Soputan and Karangetang.
