Piton de la Fournaise volcano (La Réunion): eruption continues with low effusion rate
Friday Feb 03, 2017 12:05 PM | DOOR: T
Aerial view of the principal vent at Piton de la Fournaise (image: OVPF)
Map of the new vent and lava flows (image: OVPF)
The eruption continues with little variation. An aerial survey helped map the new fissure eruption and its lava flows. The vent is located about 750 m south of Château Fort and about 2.3 km to the north-east of Piton de Bert.
The lava effusion rate this time seems to be relatively low as the flows progress only slowly, and has been estimated to be between 3-8 cubic meters / second.

Sunday, Sep 11, 2016
