Masaya volcano (Nicaragua): new small eruptions and strong degassing
Thursday May 03, 2012 18:39 PM | DOOR: T
Nicaragua's Masaya volcano, located about 20 km south of Managua city, has entered a new eruptive phase. The latest report of the Instituto Nicaragüense de Estudios Territoriales (INETER) mentions 24 small ash and steam explosions that were recorded between 30 April and 1 May. 9 of these explosions produced ash clouds that rose about 500 m above the Santiago crater rim.
The activity followed an increase of elevated SO2 emissions and seismic activity detected in late April. According to reports, the degassing from a crack in the main crater was accompanied by jet-like sounds, and internal rumblings can be heard at the volcano.
Latina Press mentions that scientists are closely monitoring the new activity, but so far, no emergency has been declared and the Masaya Volcano National Park remains open.
