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)
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.
