Volcanic activity worldwide 2 Jul 2013: Momotombo

Seismic recording from Momotombo volcano yesterday (MOMN station, INETER)
Seismic recording from Momotombo volcano yesterday (MOMN station, INETER)
Momotombo (Nicaragua): A seismic swarm has been occurring at the volcano during the past 24 hours, including a magnitude 3.0 earthquake yesterday. This could indicate a magmatic intrusion happening at depth, but so far, no unusual surface activity has been noted.
On the other hand, Momotombo volcano is one of Nicaragua's most frequently active, with 10 recorded historic eruptions between 1524 and 1905, so new activity would not be a big surprise.

Shiveluch (Kamchatka): A phase of intense activity occurred last night starting at 19:10 UTC, and lasting for about 40 minutes. The activity was probably a major collapse of the dome and/or accompanied by explosions. It produced a large ash plume rising to about 10-12 km altitude (VAAC Tokyo) into the atmosphere. Due to cloud cover, no direct observations could be made. ... [meer...]
