View of the eruption (OVPF webcam)
A new eruption has started at the volcano, following a brief seismic crisis that started early this morning.
According to OVPF, the new (fissure) vent should be located between Bory, Dolomieu and Rivals craters on the upper flank of the Dolomieu main cone. A lava flow is descending SSW and has already reached the base of the Dolomieu crater, i.e. the floor of the enclos. Its length is more than 1 km.
Thursday, Dec 04, 2014
A new eruption could be under way at the volcano. An increase in seismic activity, inflation of the volcanic edifice, and SO2 gas mixed into the degassing plume, typical for a fresh magma intrusion at shallow depth have been detected by the volcano observatory (OVPF). ...
Wednesday, Nov 05, 2014
There are signs that a new eruption could be on its way: an increasing number of shallow earthquakes has been registered under the volcano recently. ...

De nieuwe uitbarsting op de SE flank van de krater Dolomieu lijkt te zijn beëindigd al tijdens de nacht van zaterdag op zondag 22 juni. Het had geleid tot een reeks van kleine lavastromen die reisde naar de basis van de kegel en bleef goed binnen de Enclos. ...

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. ...
Monday, Jun 16, 2014
Seismic activity above normal background levels have been detected under the volcano past week. The prefecture decided to raise the alert level and advises climbers and hikers to avoid the rims and crater walls of Dolomieu crater due to an increased risk of rockfalls and collapses.

Volcano Calendar 2015
: We're proud to present our new volcano calendar 2015: 13 different and attractive images of volcanoes, volcanic landscapes and phenomena taken during volcano tours over the past few years.
Introduction to Plate Tectonics
: The Earth's upper, rigid layer is broken into several plates which are in constant motion to one another. Most earthquakes and volcanoes occur as result of these plate boundaries.
: Witnessing a volcanic eruption from close is an unforgettable experience. We offer a wide variety of tours and expeditions to active volcanoes worldwide.
