Pacaya volcano (Guatemala): possibly new strombolian activity

Friday Nov 14, 2014 07:10 AM | DOOR: T

Current seismic signal (PCG station, INSIVUMEH)
Current seismic signal (PCG station, INSIVUMEH)
It seems new strombolian explosive activity has started around 10-11 November from the Mackenney crater.
INSIVUMEH reported in its special bulletin that an increase in gas emissions as well as fine ash expulsions have been observed. Together, they form plumes reaching 3000 m altitude and drifting SW for approx. 7 km.
The seismic signal shows elevated activity as well. This could be the beginning of a new episode of strombolian activity, which in turn would slowly start building a new cone inside the Mackenney crater.

Zwakke sporadische explosies hebben hervat op de Mackenney-krater. Fijne ash plume werden waargenomen stijgen tot 2,6 km hoogte en drijven van ca. 1 km naar de S en SW. De seismische signaal toont continue trillen (trilbiggen) en zwakke explosie signalen. [meer...]

Volgens INSIVUMEH, lava blijft vloeien voort uit de vent (op de westelijke basis van de kegel?), maar is meestal binnen kleine lava buizen. Stromboli activiteit op de top vent lijkt te hebben verminderd of stopgezet. [meer...]

Terwijl lava stroom effusie waarschijnlijk is gestopt, zwak en soms gematigde Stromboli explosies blijven op de top vent, produceren kleine ash verontreinigingspluimen stijgende 100-150 m. [meer...]
