The special report on volcanic activity (REAV) of March 5 indicates that the seismic and surface activity of Nevados de Chillan complex has decreased since December 14, 2019, as well as the frequency of explosions and the dynamics associated with the movement of fluids at inside the volcano.
The Sernageomin, on the basis of this history, declares that there is a low probability of a major eruption (eruptive columns> 4 km) and therefore reduces the radius of exclusion from 3 to 2 km, and also reduces the alert orange technique in AMARILLA.

The Cité du Volcan, the Volcanological Observatory of Piton de la Fournaise and La Réunion National Park are pleased to announce the baptismal name of the new volcanic cone resulting from the eruption from February 10 to 16, 2020.
This new cone will therefore be known as Piton Jacques Picard.

This first eruption of the year 2020 arrived at the right time to celebrate as it should be the 80 years of Jacques Picard, nicknamed the "volcano guardian". Indeed, this eruption started the day before his birthday (80 years old, February 11, 2020).
Jacques Picard is one of those pioneers of the Volcano who helped to publicize this very difficult site to access until the construction of the volcano route in 1968.
Responsible for the volcano's lodge from 1962 to 2000, this emblematic figure of the Plaine des Cafres welcomed, guided and informed, for nearly 40 years, thousands of Reunionese and tourists, whether they were private individuals, prefects or personalities. all kinds, such as the famous volcanologists Haroun Tazieff, Maurice and Katia Krafft.
