Cotopaxi volcano news & activity updates:
Cotopaxi volcano (Ecuador): volcano remains calm
Thursday Aug 25, 2016 15:39 PM | DOOR: T
Yesterday's ash plume from the volcano was the result of strong winds remobilizing older ash deposits (from the recent eruptive activity during 2015-16), NOT cause by a new eruptive phase.
The volcano is currently calm both at the surface and internally (seismic activity, deformation etc) and only emits a steam plume.
Monday, Aug 08, 2016
The activity of the volcano, both internal (seismic, deformation etc) and at the surface, remains low. IGEPN reports that mild steaming and degassing continue.
Friday, May 20, 2016
During an overflight of Cotopaxi on 10 May, scientists observed minor gas emissions rising 600 m above the crater and drifting N and NW. Glaciers remained cracked, though glacial melting observed in recent months had decreased considerably. The temperature of flank fumaroles had decreased slightly.
Wednesday, Feb 24, 2016
Surface activity of the volcano has been mostly low during the past weeks, characterized by degassing / steaming and occasional very weak ash emissions. ...
Saturday, Feb 06, 2016

Blue flames of burning sulfur
: Ijen volcano in East Java has one of the most impressive sulfur deposits on earth. They are so hot that the sulfur often ignites - a mysterious display at night caught on camera.
Kuril Islands expedition
: The Kuril islands form one of the most active volcanic chains in the world, but are very difficult to access. From time to time, we organize expeditions to some of these remote and still unspoiled islands. Adventure guaranteed!
Desert, Salt & Volcanoes
: Experience one of the geologically most active areas on the planet: the Danakil desert in northern Ethiopia. Highlights include Erta Ale volcano with its active lava lake and Dallol hydrothermal fields offering a surreal landscape of colors, salt, geysers and springs.
Photos from Italy
: Italy - the cradle of volcanology. Browse through various photo galleries mainly from its numerous volcanic areas - from Naples to Etna and the Eolian Islands and more.
