Tongariro volcano (New Zealand): false reports of ash venting
Sunday Sep 23, 2012 10:05 AM | DOOR: T
GeoNet reported on 20 Sep, that "No further volcanic activity has occurred from the reactivated Upper Te Maari craters on Tongariro. Scientific teams have been busy collecting and analysing data to understand the current unrest.
Seismic activity has also remained low over the six weeks since the eruption, however, some small earthquakes have been recorded near Te Maari."
Reports of ash emissions on Friday were discredited by GeoNet who concluded that the observers (pilots) confused aerosols in the steam and gas plume with ash.

GeoNet reports little new activity from Tongariro. Seismicity from the volcano has remained low. It is noted that most of the activity visible on the seismograph drums is caused by wind.

This morning, NZ scientists could use a brief window of clear weather to make an overflight of the eruption area which was found to be just below the Upper Te Mari crater, where new steam vents were observed. At the moment, Tongariro is calm, but eruptions could resume any time.

Igneous or magmatic rocks
: The most primitive rock type forms when magma (molten rock) solidifies - either inside the earth (plutonic rocks) or during volcanic eruptions (volcanic rocks). A short overview.
Kuril Islands expedition
: The Kuril islands form one of the most active volcanic chains in the world, but are very difficult to access. From time to time, we organize expeditions to some of these remote and still unspoiled islands. Adventure guaranteed!
Photos from Kamchatka
: Kamchatka in Russia's far east is one of world's remotest regions and has an almost unparalleled density of active volcanoes. Look at photos taken during our expeditions from this wonderful corner of the world!
Volcano and photo tour to Java, Indonesia
: Visit Java's famous volcanoes: Krakatau, Merapi, Bromo, Semeru, Ijen and others, crossing Java from west to east. This study and photography trip for a small exclusive group is one of our classic and best tours.
