Turrialba - 29.03.2018 / 20h03 - RSN webcam

The Turrialba had this March 29 a diversified behavior:

During the morning, degassing, consisting of water vapor, gas and aerosols, was vigorous and characterized by a plume under 500 meters in height.

Then the composition of the degassing was composed mainly of gases and aerosols.

At 20:01 local time, a passive eruption of ash, rising less than 200 meters above the crater, extended for 10 minutes, dispersed to the northwest.

At the Piton de La Fournaise, the seismic activity, sustained for the last weeks, reflects a rise in pressure of the volcano.

The number of volcanic earthquakes under the summit cone is increasing:

• March 23: 5 - VT earthquake of greater magnitude duration 8.92 s Magnitude of duration: 1.03
• March 24: 2 - VT earthquake of greater magnitude duration: 3.76 s Magnitude of duration: 0.28
• March 25: 6 - VT earthquake of greater magnitude duration: 12.28 s Magnitude of duration: 1.31
• March 26: 5 - VT earthquake of greater magnitude duration: 11.28 s Magnitude of duration: 1.23
• March 27: 5 - VT earthquake of greater magnitude duration: 7.36 s Magnitude of duration: 0.86
• March 28th - 29th: 14th - VT earthquake of greater magnitude duration: 8.32 s Magnitude of duration: 0.97

• March 30: 5 - VT earthquake of greater magnitude duration: 4.2 s Magnitude of duration: 0.38

The OVPF records inflation, both in the upper zone, under pressure from a shallow source, and in the far field, under pressure from a deep source.

The concentrations of H2S and SO2 at the top are below or near the detection limit.

Piton de La Fournaise - Illustration of the summit deformation from 30.01.2018 to 30.03.2018 over 2 months. Here is shown a baseline (variation of distance between two GPS receivers) crossing the crater Dolomieu. A rise is synonymous with elongation and therefore swelling of the volcano; conversely, a decrease is synonymous with contraction and therefore deflation of the volcano. Any periods colored in light pink correspond to eruptions.

In Villarica, Pucón's camera recorded on March 29 at 11:43 a small emission of particles, in the form of a light plume that reached 200 meters above the summit; it is due to a collapse inside the chimney.
