San Miguel volcano (El Salvador) activity update
Tuesday Mar 19, 2013 14:48 PM | BY: T
Yesterday's seismic recording from San Miguel (VSM station, SNET)
The volcano has been relatively quiet recently. Only few volcanic quakes, weak tremor and (probably) rockfall signals show up now and then.
Thursday, Mar 07, 2013
Seismic unrest (fluctuating, sometimes strong volcanic tremor and earthquakes) continue. Several hot spots are visible on the volcano's flanks, but most likely caused by fires.
Tuesday, Feb 05, 2013
Activity has somewhat increased during the past 24 hours, including a pulse of stronger tremor and numerous small volcanic quakes.
Monday, Feb 04, 2013
Tremor has remained at unchanged, weak levels today.
Sunday, Feb 03, 2013
Weak continuous tremor mixed with local and some regional earthquakes remain the more or less unchanged sign of internal unrest at the volcano.
Friday, Jan 25, 2013
Volcanic tremor and earthquake numbers increased slightly yesterday, but dropped again today.

Volcanic crisis at Sakurajima - updates
: A strong earthquake swarm and increased inflation were detected in August 2015 and triggered authorities to raise the alert level, as volcanologists think that a larger eruption could follow. News and updates on the events can be found on this page.
Dallol hot springs
: One of the most bizarre landscapes on earth: Dallol is a vast and very active hydrothermal field creating a colorful array of hot springs, small geysers, salt towers, colorful lakes and ponds in the middle of the deepest part of the Danakil desert and the Karum salt lake.
