Piton de la Fournaise vulkaan (La Réunion): nieuwe uitbarsting

Saturday Jun 21, 2014 07:22 AM | DOOR: T
Een nieuwe uitbarsting, de eerste na 3 1/2 jaar van rust, begon op de vulkaan deze morgen om 01:35 lokale tijd, van een vent op de bovenste SE flank van de centrale krater (Dolomieu) cone.
De uitbarsting volgde een recente verhoging in seismische activiteit, hoewel het nog steeds kwam als een verrassing omdat deze seismiek was relatief zwak en geen andere tekenen van een dreigende uitbarsting geweest speurder (vervorming, toename van de uitstoot). Eerste tekenen van onrust was ontdekt tijdens rond 9-13 juni, gevolgd door een pauze in seismische activiteit. Een ander zwerm vond plaats op 17 juni met 170 bevingen en over vulkanisch-tektonische-geïnduceerde 380 afstortingen.
De waarschuwing op het niveau van de vulkaan werd verhoogd tot 2 en toegang tot de Enclos Fouqué is nu gesloten voor het publiek.

Piton de la Fournaise volcano greets the new year with its first eruption in 2010 on 2 January. A fissure vent inside the Dolomieu summit crater erupted lava fountains and a lava flow contained inside the crater, deepened by the large eruption in 2008. The eruption followed a gradual increase inseismic activity since Dec 28. The last, very short-lived eruption happened just about 3 weeks ago, and it seems likely that Piton de la Fournaise has entered a period of frequent but short eruptions, fed by dikes in its highly fractured summit zone, forming of a relatively permeable central plumbing system. ...
