Nevados del Chillán volcano (Chile): new seismic monitoring installed as part of early volcano warning program

Friday Jan 11, 2013 11:05 AM | DOOR: T

New seismic monitoring equipment has recently been installed by Sernageomin near Chillán volcano, one of Chile's most active volcanoes. First results of the monitoring confirmed that volcanic earthquakes - including some that are felt by local population - are common and frequent at the volcano, something that had long been known but never actually been measured.
The monitoring detected 61 volcanic earthquakes of low intensity related to rock fracturing during last December, which is similar to normal background levels such as measured for other volcanoes in the area.
The new monitoring network is part of a national early volcano warning program that aims to monitor the 31 most dangerous volcanoes of the country and is coordinated through the Volcano Observatory of the Southern Andes located in Temuco.
SERNAGEOMIN noted that during 2012 there was an increase in fumarolic activity from the Nuevo crater of Chillán during 2012, but that its current activity is still within normal levels and does not suggest, nor exclude any eruption in a near future. Since Chillán is one of Chile's most active volcanoes, with its last major activity in 1973, new eruptions within the next years or so would not come as a surprise.
