Popocatepetl volcano news & eruption update
Popocatépetl volcano (Central Mexico) activity update: strong degassing, lava glow from summit crater

SO2 plume from Popocatépetl on 29 July (NOAA)
Popocatépetl on 30 July (CENAPRED)
Eruptive activity remains reduced at Popocatepetl, but the volcano continues to emit a significant amount of SO2, and volcanic tremor and lava glow are visible. In fact, Popo is known to be one of the top-performers of SO2 emission among all known volcanoes.
Friday, Jul 27, 2012
Strong degassing and SO2 emission, occasional ash bursts and a constant lava glow from the summit area can be observed at Popocatépetl volcano near Mexico City.
Wednesday, Jun 27, 2012
Small volcano-tectonic earthquakes, spasmodic and harmonic tremor, along with small gas and ash emissions, and occasional explosions continue. ...
Wednesday, Jun 27, 2012
Gas and steam venting picked-up at Popocatepetl volcano in the past 24 hours. SO2 output from the volcano had increased the past few days.
Wednesday, Jun 20, 2012
Incandescence from the crater was occasionally visible at night. During 13-15 June gas-and-ash plumes that rose above the crater sometimes drifting NW and W. Ejected tephra fell onto the E, N, and W flanks, as far away as 500 m from the crater.
Volcán Popocatépetl, whose name is the Aztec word for smoking mountain, towers to 5426 m 70 km SE of Mexico City to form North America's 2nd-highest volcano. The glacier-clad stratovolcano contains a steep-walled, 250-450 m deep crater. The generally symmetrical volcano is modified by the sharp-peaked Ventorrillo on the NW, a remnant of an earlier volcano.
At least three previous major cones were destroyed by gravitational failure during the Pleistocene, producing massive debris-avalanche deposits covering broad areas south of the volcano. The modern volcano was constructed to the south of the late-Pleistocene to Holocene El Fraile cone. Three major plinian eruptions, the most recent of which took place about 800 AD, have occurred from Popocatépetl since the mid Holocene, accompanied by pyroclastic flows and voluminous lahars that swept basins below the volcano. Frequent historical eruptions, first recorded in Aztec codices, have occurred since precolumbian time.

Photos from Germany
: Germany has a large number of volcanoes - most of them extinct, but the Eifel volcanic field is still potentially active.
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.
