Volcano news: Pacaya (Guatemala)
Pacaya volcano (Guatemala) activity update: seismic unrest
Monday Sep 10, 2012 10:05 AM | DOOR: T
Current seismic signal from PCG station (INSIVUMEH)
A larger number of small quakes is visible on today's seismic recording from Pacaya, but there is no surface activity at the volcano.
Saturday, Sep 08, 2012
At the surface, the only activity is white, mainly steam emission. The seismic station PCG records elevated numbers of volcanic earthquakes and tremor (internal vibration) as well as superficial volcanic events.
Sunday, Aug 19, 2012
No explosions or other surface activity other than weak steaming and fumaroles have been recorded at Pacaya, but the seismic signal shows weak tremor and some volcano-tectonic quakes related to fluid movements inside the volcano.
Tuesday, Aug 14, 2012
A tremor signal is being recorded at Pacaya, but apart from fumaroles degassing, there is no visible activity.
Thursday, Aug 09, 2012
A blue-white plume rising up to 100 m above the crater are currently the only visible activity at Pacaya. A number of weak earthquakes are visible in the seismogram, suggesting fluid movements under the volcano.
Tuesday, Aug 07, 2012
Some tremor and shallow volcanic quakes and a weak fumarole creating a 10 m high plume of gas and steam are the only signs of activity reported from Pacaya.
