INGEOMINAS reports: During the last week Nevado del Ruiz volcano continued to record seismic activity primarily associated with rock fracturing within the volcanic edifice, which was located south and northeast of Arenas crater, at depths ranging from 1 to 9 km.
The highest magnitude recorded during the last week was 2.4 (ML), corresponding to an earthquake that occurred on September 21 at 18:06 (local time). Additionally, there was low-energy seismic activity related to fluid dynamics inside the conduits of the Arenas crater and an area located to the NE.
There were also small signals associated with explosions and / or gas and ash emissions, characteristics of the current state of the volcano.

Wednesday, Sep 12, 2012
Steaming and occasional weak explosions with ash venting (such as one on 6 Sep at 09:02 local time) are accompanied by relatively low-energy seismic activity. There are week tremor pulses and some volcanic quakes concentrated NE and N of the Arenas crater at depths between 1.5 and 7 km. The largest was a M1.5 event on 8 Sep at 15:14 local time. [meer...]
