Llaima volcano (Chile), activity update: explosions and interactions with ice

Thu, 21 Feb 2008, 11:22
11:22 AM | BY: TS
Explosions were reported in the main crater of Llaima during 8-13 February. Because of the melt water from the lava and glacier interaction the Calbuco River was about 1 m higher than the normal level on 9 February. There were lava flows on the W flank that were 2.5 km long and made channels in the ice.
Sulfur dioxide and steam plumes from lava interacting with ice during rose to altitudes of 4.1-6.1 km.
