Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update: weak explosions
Monday Sep 10, 2012 10:05 AM | DOOR: T
Current seismic signal from FG3 station (INSIVUMEH)
4 weak explosions with ash plumes rising 300 m and some glowing material ejected to about 100 m were observed during the past observation period 8-9 Sep. Small avalanches of rocks towards the Tniluya and Ceniza Canyons were produced by material falling back from the explosions. Weak degassing sounds are heard.
The current seismogram suggests some increased activity this morning.
Saturday, Sep 08, 2012
After the end of its recent paroxysm on 4 August, the volcano has quieted down a lot. INSIVUMEH reports only white steaming and that the lava flows are cooling and not producing avalanches. ...
Thursday, Sep 06, 2012
during 29-30 August lava flows from Fuego traveled 250 m down the Taniluyá drainage (SW), generating block avalanches that produced gray plumes and reached vegetated areas. ...
Wednesday, Sep 05, 2012
The latest stronger eruptive episode (paroxysm) of Fuego has ended after 32 hours INSIVUMEN reports in the last special bulletin this morning: After 16:30 local time yesterday, only little ash was left in the atmosphere and the lava flows, which had reached 1.3 km length are decreasing. ...
Monday, Sep 03, 2012
Fuego volcano's activity has increased. Seismic recordings monitor rising tremor and there are (for now weak) constant explosions ejecting ash to 900 meters above the crater forming plumes of 8 kilometers in two directions ,one south and one to the southwest. This activity generates constant moderate degassing sounds, audible to 10 kilometers distance. Reports of OVFGO Volcano Observatory indicate incandescent material being ejected to 100 m height. ...
Wednesday, Aug 29, 2012
The lava flow towards the Taniluya canyon is 200 m long and produces small incandescent rockfalls. A weak glow was observed from the crater at night. INISIVUMEH mentions no explosions.
