Cotopaxi volcano update: Estimation of total erupted ash so far: VEI=1

vr, 4 sep 2015, 08:17
08:17 AM | DOOR: T
IGPEN estimates that the total volume of ash erupted so far is about 630,000 m3 weighing about 700,000 tons. This would make the eruption rank so far as VEI 1 only.
(The Volcanic Explosivity Index relates the amount of material erupted during an eruption on a logarithmic scale (from 0 to 9) similar to the Richter scale for earthquakes. For comparison, the eruption of Krakatau in 1883, one of the largest in the past 150 years, was VEI 6).
