Wordwide volcano activity – Rodger Wilson volcano overview of October 12
Please be a little patient with this new format.
This report is compiled out of many information sources by Georges Vitton, Rodger Wilson, Armand Vervaeck and Jens Skapski.
Kliuchevskoi (Kamchatka Peninsula), Veniaminof (Alaska Peninsula (station VNWF), Santa Maria (station STG3), Fuego (station FG3), and Pacaya (station PCG) (all in Guatemala), and Tungurahua (station RETU) and Reventador (station CONE) (both in Ecuador) are all erupting at this time.
KVERT reports an (initially) explosive eruption has burst from the pass between Kliuchevskoi and Kamenvolcanoes (Kamchatka Peninsula) early today. While not an unheard-of event at the volcanoes, eruptions from this site have been infrequent during historic times.
Yesterday I opted to not mention in our report the appearance of low-level volcanic tremor the past few days atTungurahua volcano (Ecuador) (station RETU),…bad move!!! The volcano began erupting overnight,…low-level activity at this time, but an eruption non-the-less!!
Well it worked again! I have found that if you “talk trash” about volcanoes, they tend to respond with elevated activity,…even eruptions! You can refer to some of my my previous posts. Here are some suggestions to get the volcanoes you know riled-up: “The volcanoes we watch all currently exhibit very low levels of seismic activity”,…or better yet, “These volcanoes are lame!!!,…I’m gonna go mow the lawn!!”. Try it,…it really works!!!
The volcanoes we watch are still behaving somewhat sluggishly!
Not alot of changes in activity at the volcanoes we watch. The “Culture Volcan” website reports an notable increase in VT seismicity (indicative of magmatic intrusion/gas inflation) at Lewetobi volcano (Indonesia) during the past week. Explosive eruptions continue to be frequent at Sakurajima volcano (Japan).
These reports will be relatively “short and sweet” from now on unless something really dramatic appears to be happening.
Back in town, Here we go again (mainly thanks to Rodger Wilson)
Some really interesting stuff on the Momotombo volcano (Nicaragua) (station MOMN) seismograms this morning. While the larger magnitude (to magnitude M4.0 a few days ago!) earthquakes have died-out, numerous small, low-frequency (volcanic) earthquakes, and more important, low-frequency volcanic tremor, have appeared at the volcano. This is an important development and we could be on the verge of the first magmatic eruption at this volcano since 1908.
A significant earthquake swarm has commenced at Momotombo volcano (Nicaragua) during the past day. Volcano-tectonic earthquakes began at/near the volcano this past spring, but the current activity exhibits the hallmark of volcanic seismicity (recurrent, intense episodes of activity).
Volcanic tremor (and presumably eruptive activity) remains strong at Veniaminof volcano (Alaska Peninsula) (station VNMF).
The ongoing eruption at Veniaminof volcano (Alaska Peninsula) (station VNWF) has re-invigorated, ejecting ash to an altitude of 20,000 feet elevation at times.
Well,…it’s pretty much status quo for the terrestrial volcanoes we watch today, but there is a massive eruption (by Earth standards anyway!) in-progress on Jupiters moon Io (click this article).
Co-eruptive seismicity continues at Veniaminof volcano (Alaska Peninsula) (station VNWF).
Veniaminof volcano (Alaska Peninsula) (station VNWF) continues to huff and puff with low level strombolian explosions and lava flow emission.
Volcanic (co-eruptive) seismicity at Veniaminof volcano (Alaska Peninsula) (station VNWF) has become a staccatto beat of both volcanic and explosion earthquakes this past week. The volcano rumbles-on with lava extrusion and strombolian explosions occurring simultaneously. Volcano-tectonic(?) seismicity has rejuvenated just east of Mount Churchill volcano (Wrangell arc) (AK) during the past 24 hours with several magnitude M4.0+ events along with numerous smaller earthquakes.
Volcanic tremor has eased (but continues) at Veniaminof volcano (Alaska Peninsula) (station VNWF) during the past 24 hours. Active lava flows were observed during recent overflights of the volcano by AVO personnel.
