Short-lived large plumes generated at the Taal Main Crater
A short-lived 400- to 500-meter-tall white plume was generated at the main crater last 13 March, at 2:11 pm local time. This was caused by a burst of steam-rich gas and lasted for about 2.5 minutes based on seismic records. After the gas burst event, activity at the main crater weakened to emissions of steam-laden plumes rising 50 meters high from active fumaroles located at the northern and eastern walls. 24 hours following this event, emissions of steam-laden plumes from the active fumaroles weakened to 10 meters high.
