Fuego volcano (Guatemala) activity update: occasional strombolian explosions, lava flow towards Ceniza canyon
di, 4 dec 2012, 12:05
12:05 PM | DOOR: T
During the past 24 hours, only a few strombolian explosions were registered with incandescent material ejected to 100 m above the crater and ash plumes of a few 100 m height.
The lava flow towards the Ceniza drainage remains active with a length of 100 m this morning.
Activity remains mostly effusive. The active lava flow towards the Ceniza Canyon was 800 m long this morning. Lees alle
Strombolian explosions have been gradually returning at the volcano. 5 were recorded between 18-19 and 13 during 19-20 Nov. They produced gray ash columns of 200-500 meters above the crater and dispersed up to 8 km towards south and southwest. The explosions ejected incandescent material to 100-150 meters above the crater and generated weak avalanches on the upper slope. Lees alle

Fuego volcano photos
: One of Central America's most active volcanoes, Fuego in Guatemala is in near-permanent explosive eruption with intermittent phases of increasing activity that generate lava fountains, lava flows and pyroclastic flows.
Photos from Armenia
: Armenia is a very photogenic country with a large variety of landscapes showing some very spectacular geology, century-old monasteries and castles, and much more.
