GVP Weekly Volcanic Activity Report for 6/2-8/2010
The latest update from the Smithsonian/USGS Global Volcanism Program!
Highlights (not including Taal, Eyjafjallajökull and Bezymianny) include:
- Another thermal anomaly was spotted on an Kuril Island volcano - this one being Tiatia. The volcano has no seismic monitoring network, so the thermal anomaly is all that has been observed.
- Lava flows and strombolian explosions continue at Guatemala's Pacaya. Some of the explosions have launched bombs hundreds of meters into the air.
- Kliuchevskoi was another busy Russian volcano, with a large thermal anomaly and ash explosions that produced a plume at least 7.3 km (24,000 feet) tall.
- Mexico's Popocatépetl produced one of the larger explosions it has experienced over the last year on June 8, producing an ash plume that reached 8 km (27,600 feet).
