Current seismic signal at Tongariro (WT station, GeoNet)
Een toenemend aantal aardbevingen en eventueel een zwakke tremor pulsen verschijnen op hedendaagse seismische opname.
Tuesday, Feb 19, 2013
On 14 February GeoNet reported that Tongariro remained quiet with no eruptive activity being detected since the explosion on 21 November 2012. Steam-and-gas plumes rose from the Te Maari Craters, and were unusually strong during the recent weeks possibly due to weather conditions. The Aviation Colour Code remained at Yellow (second lowest on a 4 four-color scale) and the Volcanic Alert Level remained at 1 (on a scale of 0-5).
Thursday, Jan 31, 2013
Weak earthquakes continue to occur under the volcano, but the general level of seismic activity has remained low.
Wednesday, Jan 30, 2013
Some small earthquakes have appeared again today, but generally, seismic activity has been showing a decreasing trend over the past weeks.
Tuesday, Jan 22, 2013
Tongariro's current status remains characterized by strong degassing from the Te Maari craters, the site of eruptions in August and November 2012. At present, seismic activity is low. This activity is likely to go on several years, but Tongariro could produce new eruptions with little or no precursors, New Zealand's GNS writes in its recent update: ...
