Volcano Nevado del Ruiz (Colombia) activity summary 1-7 October 2012

Friday Oct 12, 2012 06:11 AM | DOOR: T

During the past week, Nevado del Ruiz volcano continued to show seismic activity associated mainly with rock fracturing within the volcanic edifice, which was located north, northeast, south, southeast and southwest of the crater Arenas, at depths ranging from 1 to 8 km.
The maximum magnitude earthquake recorded during the last week was 1.4 ML (local magnitude) earthquake on October 2 at 15:20 (Local Time). There was also low energy seismic activity related to fluid dynamics in volcanic conduits, located E and SW of Arenas crater.
There were further signs associated with small explosions or gas emissions and ash venting.
