Fuego volcano (Guatemala): small paroxysm, lava fountains during 10-11 Dec
Friday Dec 12, 2014 15:36 PM | DOOR: T
Lava fountain from Fuego during 10-11 Dec 2014
Seismic signal on the evening of 10 Dec (FG3 station, INSIVUMEH)
The ending of the paroxysm visible on the seismic signal of the morning of 11 Dec
A small paroxysm occurred at the volcano during the night between Wed-Thu, INSIVUMEH reports in a special bulletin. Activity, which generally had been elevated over the past weeks, increased during the evening of 10 Dec and towards a phase of continuous lava fountaining of 100-150 m height. Turbine-like degassing sounds accompanied the eruption.
The intense phase of activity lasted until the next morning (11 Dec) when it gradually decreased and returned to the normal mode of intermittent explosions.
Monday, Dec 08, 2014
Explosive activity has decreased a bit and is now at average levels. The observatory reported 28 explosions of small to medium size during 24 hours (compared to 6-8 per hour at the end of Nov), and ash plumes rising up to 1000 m above the crater.
Wednesday, Dec 03, 2014
Explosive activity has been relatively high recently with up to 6-8 explosions per hour. Some of them covered the whole upper cone with incandescent bombs and their shock waves are reported to be felt or heard in up to 30 km distance. Ash plumes rose to up to 5 km altitude, i.e. 1,400 m above the crater. ...
Friday, Nov 14, 2014

Latest quakes in Greece
: Greece has a lot of earthquake activity, but most of them occur around the margin of the Aegean microplate. The Cycladic islands are located in its center and therefore seismically comparably quiet.
Volcanoes in the Solar System
: The Earth is not the only place with volcanic activity. Active volcanism also occurs at at least 3 other bodies in our Solar System.
