Galeras volcano (Colombia): seismic swarm triggers eruption warning

Friday Nov 25, 2011 19:36 PM | DOOR: TOM PFEIFFER

The Colombian volcano monitoring institute INGEOMINAS has raised the alarm level for Galeras volcano, after a number of so-called tornillos, a characteristic seismic signal often preceding eruptions at Galeras, were detected in recent days. Tornillos consist of a screw-driver shaped signal of rapdily increasing and then slowly decreasing harmonic tremor and preceded most eruptions of Galeras between 1992 and 2010.
