Seismic signal from Cotopaxi (VC1 station, IGPEN)
What seems to be a strong seismic swarm has been visible on recent seismograms, but IGPEN has not issued any notes about this otherwise interesting activity, it is suspected that the VC1 station at the NE base of the volcano is either malfunctioning, showing something else or simply having a very strong magnification of normal backgroud seismicity.

Small tremors under Cotopaxi (VC1 station, IGPEN)
Another pulse of volcanic earthquakes is in progress under Cotopaxi volcano. Such swarms have been occurring several times recently, but for now, can be considered as part of the normal behavior of an active, but currently dormant volcano.

Another brief episode of volcanic earthquakes occurred during 15 Jan.
