Tungurahua volcano (Ecuador) activity update: steaming, possibly occasional small ash emissions
Thursday Sep 20, 2012 10:05 AM | BY: T
Current seismic signal from RETU station (IG)
A possible small ash emission was reported by VAAC Washington at 14:16 GMT today. No ash is visible on satellite images, and the seismic signal is very quiet with only a few small volcanic earthquakes.
Wednesday, Sep 19, 2012
Activity at the volcano has remained low. Steaming could be observed during windows of clear weather, and there are numerous long-period seismic events recorded.
Thursday, Sep 13, 2012
After the sharp increase in volcanic gas emissions (SO2) and abundant presence of seismic signals related to internal movement of fluids recorded earlier this month of September, activity from Tungurahua volcano has declined markedly since 4 September and presently has seismicity with moderate to low levels, and occasionally some small steam emissions. A drastic reduction in SO2 emission rates recently is one of the most significant observations. ...
Wednesday, Sep 12, 2012
The volcano remains relatively quiet, but direct observations are difficult to cloud cover. The seismic signal is low with some weak tremor pulses.
Tuesday, Sep 11, 2012
Volcanic earthquakes and weak intermittent tremor occur at Tungurahua volcano. There were no recent explosions.
Monday, Sep 10, 2012
While seismic activity remains moderate with some volcanic tremor present, there is currently only steaming from the volcano.
