Volcano news: Pacaya (Guatemala)

Pacaya volcano (Guatemala) activity update: some changes in seismic activity detected, degassing

Thursday Mar 29, 2012 10:05 AM | DOOR: T

On 20 March patterns of seismicity and emissions from Pacaya's MacKenney cone changed, although remained characteristic of normal behavior for the volcano.
On 26 March avalanches were detected and during 26-27 March gas plumes drifted S and SW. The report noted that after the eruption on 27 May 2010 only fumarolic emissions, mainly composed of water vapor, rose from MacKenney cone.
