Current seismic signal from Galeras ANGV station on October 3 (INGEOMINAS)
On September 28, swarms of earthquakes occurred of low energy at shallow depths (less than 8 km) at distances up to 13 km and magnitudes of up to 1.4.
Webcameras showed steaming and sometimes weak ash venting (such as on 27-28 Sep).
INGEOMINAS staff noticed sulfur odor during fieldwork at the top of Galeras, but measured SO2 values were low.

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. ...

Weak seismic activity with some quakes and long-period events continue to be registered.
Wednesday, Sep 19, 2012
Weak tremor pulses and small earthquakes occur at the volcano and some of these events are accompanied by gas and steam emissions sometimes containing some ash, as observed on 12, 14 and 18 Sep. SO2 emission is a low to intermediate levels.
