Asama volcano news & activity updates

Asama volcano (Japan): small eruption this morning

Tuesday Jun 16, 2015 06:56 AM | DOOR: T

A small eruption occurred at the volcano this morning around 9am local time.
The Japanese Meteorological Agency (JMA) confirmed light ash fall occurred in 4 km north of the volcano. A short phase of increased seismic activity preceded and accompanied the explosion. According to a news article, JMA scientists think that today's explosion will likely be followed by similar ones in the near future, but not lead to a larger scale eruption.
There are no clear signs (such as deformation) of a major body of fresh magma is rising under the volcano. In that case, a possible scenario is that the eruption this morning is mostly phreatic in origin, i.e. driven by overheated ground water with no or little involvement of new magma.
