Cotopaxi volcano update: Intermittent weak ash emissions
Saturday Feb 06, 2016 11:23 AM | DOOR: T
On 29 January IG reported that in recent weeks superficial activity at Cotopaxi was characterized by minor steam emissions from the crater and sporadic gas emissions with minor amounts of ash.
Sulfur dioxide emissions were less than 1,000 tons per day (pre-eruptive levels) and seismicity had almost returned to baseline levels. At 1843 on 24 January a plume with low-to-moderate levels of ash rose 700 m above the crater and drifted W. The emission coincided with a hybrid earthquake.

The volcano's activity remains low, with intermittent small ash emissions and continuous steaming. Weak glow can sometimes be observed at night. According to IGEPN, seismic activity remains moderately strong.
Wednesday, Nov 11, 2015
Intermittent explosions continue at the volcano. IG reported that during 4-10 November gas, steam, and ash plumes rose almost daily from Cotopaxi as high as 1.5 km above the crater. ...
Thursday, Oct 29, 2015
No significant changes in the volcano's activity have occurred. According to monitoring scientists from IGEPN, it seems that magma is slowly rising inside an open-conduit system. ...
Monday, Oct 26, 2015
No significant changes have occurred during the past days. The activity remains characterized by intense degassing and occasional mild ash emissions mixed into the plume.
Tuesday, Oct 20, 2015
The volcano's activity has been similar as during the past weeks. It continues toerupt a weak to moderate steam plume with more or less ash content, rising up to 1.5 km above the summit crater. Occasional weak ash falls have occurred in areas to the west and southwest of the volcano. ...
