There was another overflight of Nevado del Huila volcano on 29 October, reports the Observatorio Popayán in its latest special bulletin, issued late yesterday. Among the observations reported is that the new material seen in the overflight of last Friday has been confirmed to be a new dome constructed on top of the existing dome: ‘It is stressed that the new dome has a high growth rate’. Continuous and intensive degassing was in progress, with the centres of gas emission corresponding to the position of the new dome.

The photograph above comes from the overflight and shows the new dome. Below is the webcam view of Nevado del Huila at dawn today (both images copyright INGEOMINAS, reproduced here for non-commercial purposes in accordance with the terms of use). More photographs can be found here.
