Nevados de Chillán volcano (Central Chile) activity update

Monday Aug 08, 2016 16:16 PM | DOOR: T

Small ash emission at Nevados de Chillán on 6 Aug 2016
Small ash emission at Nevados de Chillán on 6 Aug 2016
Ash eruption on 5 Aug
Ash eruption on 5 Aug
Small, sporadic ash emissions continue to occur at the volcano on most days since they re-appeared in late July, showing that the volcano's superficial hydrothermal system remains disturbed.
According to SERNAGEOMIN volcanologists, this new phase of surface activity is being caused by a small magma intrusion at 4-5 km depth which interacts with (transfers heat and gasses into) the overlying system of circulating fluids (water and gasses) which can become over-pressurized and then generate explosions at the surface (= phreatic activity).

Tuesday, Aug 02, 2016
The activity at the volcano has again increased. While degassing and weak, sporadic ash emissions have become more frequent again since mid July, a more intense phase of activity took place yesterday: starting around 17:10 local time, the volcano erupted a dense plume of ash from the crater that rose several hundreds of meters to 3500-3600 m altitude and quickly dispersed. Ash fall occurred near the summit. ... [meer...]

Small ash emissions from Nevados de Chillán volcano yesterday (SERNAGEOMIN)
Wednesday, Apr 20, 2016
New ash emissions occurred yesterday morning, generating a small plume that rose approx. 500 m. According to Sernageomin, this activity is not caused directly by fresh magma, but related to disturbances of the shallow hydrothermal system which interacts with an underlying, probably only small body of magma. ...
