Piton de la Fournaise volcano (La Réunion) activity update: eruption ended 30 May 2015
Monday Jun 01, 2015 11:05 AM | DOOR: T
Tremor during the eruption of Piton de la Fournaise volcano (OVPF)
The most recent eruption (the second in 2015) ended during the evening of 30 May.
Tremor disappeared around 20:50, following a decreasing trend since 27 May. According to estimates of the volcano observatory, the eruption produced approx. 8 million cubic meters of lava during its 13 days of activity, a typical value for an eruption of Piton de la Fournaise in recent decades.
Interestingly, no significant deflation has been detected accompanying the eruption,- this means that it has not drained much of the magma chamber and that a new eruption, even in a short time from now, could be a realistic scenario.
Friday, May 22, 2015
The eruption continues with stable lava effusion accompanied by stable tremor levels since Monday. Lava fountaining at the vent reaches up to 40 m height and the lava flow continues to move slowly towards the coast, from where it was still 3 km distant yesterday evening.
Wednesday, May 20, 2015
The eruption continues with strong lava effusion. As of 19 May evening, the lava flow had been at 3 km from the coastal road, having advanced 750 m during the past 24 hours. ...
Monday, May 18, 2015
The new eruption continues, although only the lowest vent seems to be still active by now. It continues to feed a large lava flow now headed towards the vast coastal flat to the east. In the course of today, it reached the steeper section of the Enclos, the "Grandes Pentes" and started to descend there. ...
