Tungurahua volcano news & eruption updates:
Tungurahua volcano (Ecuador) activity update
Thursday May 02, 2013 12:31 PM | DOOR: T
This morning's seismic signal from Tungurahua (RETU station, IG)
Activity remains at moderate levels. Steam andash emissions produce plumes rising about 2 km from the crater, and occasional stronger explosions with cannon-shot noises can be heard (rarely seen) ejecting blocks that fall onto the outer upper slopes and tumble downhill.
Continuous volcanic tremor can be seen on the seismic recordings.
Wednesday, May 01, 2013
Ash emissions and explosions of moderate size have continued and generated a plume averaging 1-2 km in height above the crater. During the night, incandescence is visible at the summit. Some of the stronger explosions are accompanied by cannon-shot noises.
Tuesday, Apr 30, 2013
Eruptive activity remains strong with ash emissions interrupted by strong vulcanian-type explosions. An explosion at 18h30 local time the day before yesterday produced an ash plume rising 5 km above the crater, and ejected incandescent blocks to 400 m distance from the crater. ...
Monday, Apr 29, 2013
Following the initial explosions and ash emissions on Saturday, a significant new eruptive phase has started at the volcano. ...
Sunday, Apr 28, 2013
After a brief pause of just over a month, new eruptive activity has started in the form of gas and ash emissions, accompanied by many small earthquakes and weak tremor pulses. The activity caused light ash fall in areas near the volcano, in particular Juive Grande. ...
