Popocatepetl volcano news & eruption update
Popocatépetl vulkaan (Centraal Mexico) activiteit update
Thursday Jan 02, 2014 15:29 PM | DOOR: T
Ontgassing pluim van Popocatépetl gisteren
Geen belangrijke activiteit is opgetreden in de afgelopen 2 weken.
Ontgassing, onregelmatige kleine emissies van meestal stoom (minder dan 10 per dag, meestal) en voortdurende gloed van de krater zijn worden gerapporteerd door CENAPRED die onderhouden alarmniveau "gele fase 2" ongewijzigd.
Monday, Dec 09, 2013
Activity has remained unchanged. Almost no explosions have occurred recently, only a (significant) gas plume.
Friday, Dec 06, 2013
Strong degassing with high SO2 content and glow from the crater characterize the current activity. There have been almost no explosive emissions during the past 24 hrs, as the following 24hr time-lapse video illustrates: ...
Thursday, Dec 05, 2013
The rate of emissions has dropped to 2 over 24 hours yesterday. Only small steam and gas plumes were erupted. Weak summit glow can be observed at night.
Saturday, Nov 30, 2013
CENAPRED reports no changes in activity. The number of explosive emissions of gas/steam and minor amounts of ash is very low (less than 10 per day). Weak glow remains visible at night and SO2 emissions elevated. ...
Tuesday, Nov 26, 2013
No significant changes in activity have occurred. Only 8 weak emissions / explosions were recorded by CENAPRED during the latest 24 hr observation interval. The attached picture shows the largest of these events.
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.
