Tungurahua volcano in apparent calm on 31 May 2016 (image: S. Mr. Aguaiza, OVT-IGEPN).
The Geophysical Institute warned that a new eruptive phase might be in the making at the volcano, which is one of the world's most active. Geophysical monitoring stations have been recording a significant, steady inflation (swelling) of the volcanic edifice. This is most likely a sign of new magma intruding at shallow depth. ...meer [Lees alle]

Strong explosion from Tungurahua yesterday evening; a small pyroclastic flow can be seen departing from the base of the eruption column.
The activity remains very elevated at the volcano. During yesterday and the night, several more explosions occurred ejecting incandescent material that produced glowing avalanches of up to 1500 length mainly on the western and northwestern flanks. ...meer

Explosion at Tungurahua yesterday morning (image: EDUfoto / facebook.com/edufoto.org)
The activity of the volcano has strongly increased since last weekend - a new surge of magma has been arriving at the summit vent and is producing a violent eruption from the summit crater. Its climax so far occurred this morning, at 07:51 local time, when a powerful explosion generated an eruption column that rose approx. 6 km above the crater and reached an altitude of estimated 36,000 ft (11 km). Pyroclastic flows (generated by partial column collapse) descended over 2000 m towards the Mandur and Achupashal areas. ...meer [Lees alle]

Strombolian eruption at Tungurahua on 2 March (photo: E. Gaunt - OVTIGEPN)
The volcano is in a phase of mild to moderate strombolian activity. Incandescent bombs are ejected to the upper slopes of the volcano, generating avalanches. Ash plumes rise up to a few km above the crater and drift mostly in westerly directions. ...meer [Lees alle]

Ash/steam emission from Tungurahua yesterday
Ash emissions have continued after the powerful vent-clearing explosion on Sunday (27 Feb). During brief periods when cloud cover lifted, a steam-and ash column was seen rising 1,500 meters above the crater and heading west. ...meer
