Ubinas volcano (Peru) activity update: sporadic ash emissions

Friday Mar 20, 2015 15:38 PM | BY: T

The Instituto Geofísico del Perú (IGP) and Observatorio Volcanológico del Sur (OVS) reported sporadic ash emissions on 17 March.
During 10 February-17 March seismicity at Ubinas was generally low, although a hybrid event was detected on 11 March.
Two main sources of seismicity were located 1 km W of the crater at depths of 1-3 km and 2 km NW at depths of 1-5 km. Water-vapor emissions rose as high as 1.5 km above the crater. Sporadic ash emissions were observed on 17 March. (from: Smithsonian / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report 11-17 March 2015)
