During our pilot expedition to the volcanoes of Guatemala in Dec 2009, Santigaguito lava dome was observed between 25-28 Dec. The lava dome produced ash eruptions roughly every 0.5-3 hours with plumes reaching up to 300-1000 m elevation. On one occasion, a small pyroclastic flow was observed travelling down on the SW side of the lava dome.
