SO2 plume from Nevado del Ruiz volcano (NOAA)
Seismic signal from Nevado del Ruiz today (OLL station, INGEOMINAS)
In de afgelopen weken, de vulkaan nog steeds vrij lage seismische activiteit, vooral in de "gebruikelijke" gebied S en SE van de arena's krater op ongeveer 8 km diepte. Aan het oppervlak produceert de vulkaan intens ontgassing met een pluim soms tot 1.5 km hoogte.

Volcanic activity at the surface (degassing) and inside (earthquakes) has remained comparably low. ...
Monday, Oct 07, 2013
An earthquake swarm affected the volcano on 7 Oct, including a volcanic-tectonic quake of magnitude 2.7 at 3.2 km depth northeast of the Arenas crater. This could indicate that new magma has been rising into the shallow volcano's conduit, which might (or not) lead to new eruptive activity.
Saturday, Sep 14, 2013
The volcano has had a phase of increased degassing producing an important SO2 plume visible on satellite data. No reports of other unusual activity have become known.
Tuesday, Aug 13, 2013
Since the last update, the volcano has been relatively calm with only internal unrest in the form of fluctuating seismic activity. Manizales observatory reports a slight increase during the past week, with earthquakes clustered in the usual location (presumably an area of magma storage) about 3.5 km NE of the Arenas crater at depths between 4-7 km.
