Pacaya volcano (Guatemala): new eruptive phase, increasing seismic activity
Monday Jun 22, 2015 15:32 PM | DOOR: T
Tremor amplitude of Pacaya volcano during the current month
Mild strombolian activity has resumed in the main (Mackenney) crater of the volcano. INSIVUMEH reported intense degassing, small ash emissions, incandescence at night and volcanic tremor.
The seismic activity of the volcano has been increasing during the past days accompanying the onset of the new eruptive phase. There is a possibility that it further increases and produces a more violent eruptive phase with lava fountaining and/or lava flow activity.
Tuesday, Jun 02, 2015
INSIVUMEH reported degassing and occasional ash emissions that rise approx. 200 m above the Mackenney crater. This is likely a sign of weak, dee-seated strombolian activity from a vent inside the crater.
Saturday, Feb 07, 2015
Small ash emissions continue, probably from mild, deep-seated strombolian activity in the new pit inside Mackenney crater described a week ago.
Tuesday, Feb 03, 2015
New ash emissions and explosions, up to 40 per day, have occurred last week, indicating the volcano could be heading towards a new eruptive phase of strombolian activity. ...
Thursday, Jan 15, 2015
The volcano is becoming active again. In a special bulletin yesterday, INSIVUMEH reported that ash emissions occurred from the volcano. ...
Saturday, Dec 27, 2014
INSIVUMEH reported a week ago that activity decreased and that there are currently no signs of explosive activity from the Mackenney crater. Only a steam and gas plume is being emitted.
