Taal volcano news & activity updates
Taal volcano (Luzon, Philippines) activity update: unrest continues, increased water temperatures, inflation of the edifice
Friday Feb 24, 2012 08:49 AM | BY: T
Field measurements on 21 February 2012 at the western sector of the Main Crater Lake yielded slight increase in water temperature of 31.8°C from 31.4°C, decrease in water level of 0.65 meter from 0.72 meter and slight increase in acidity of pH 2.82 from pH 2.86. Ground deformation survey (precise leveling) on the Volcano Island last 15 - 17 February 2012 indicated no significant change compared with October 2011, but is nonetheless still inflated compared with baseline data. GPS data for the period of February to first week of November 2011 showed slight deflation in Taal Volcano Island beginning August, but nonetheless also indicate that the edifice is still slightly inflated compared to February baseline data.
Carbon dioxide (CO2) emission at the Main Crater Lake decreased to 482 tonnes per day on 18 October 2011 compared from the previous readings of 1,821 tonnes per day last 27 June 2011. (PHILVOLCS bulletin 24 Feb 2012)
