Galeras volcano activity summary 18 - 25 September 2012

Wednesday Sep 26, 2012 09:26 AM | DOOR: T

Seismicity associated with fluid motion in volcanic conduits continued at low levels. Sometimes this seismicity is associated with gas and ash emissions. At dawn on September 25, a swarm of earthquakes occurred related to fracturing of crustal material, with low energy events, located about 2 km west of the active crater, with depths close to 3 km above the top and magnitudes below 1 in the Richter scale.
Using cameras installed on different flanks of the volcano, with the exception of September 23, during the week, weather conditions allowed to observe gas emissions, mainly water vapor. On 18 and 24, some ash content could be seen in the emitted gas column.
Values ​​of Sulphur Dioxide flow remained fluctuating between low and moderate.
