Volcano news: Pacaya (Guatemala)
Pacaya volcano (Guatemala) activity update: steaming, seismic activity above background
Thursday Sep 13, 2012 10:05 AM | DOOR: T
This morning's seismogram from Pacaya (PCG station, INSIVUMEH)
The strong steaming at Pacaya observed a few days ago has declined back to normal levels (about 100 m plume). Seismic activity remains slightly elevated with some quakes and tremor pulses apparent.
Tuesday, Sep 11, 2012
The activity of the steam plume (which had been on average of 50-100 m height) has increased drastically, INSIVUMEH reports, and is now 600 m tall. A possibility is that this is related to increased groundwater infiltration. There are no sounds or rumblings. The seismic activity seems to be increased as well.
Monday, Sep 10, 2012
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.
