Emissions from Villarrica? 7 September 2010

Posted by admin in activity reports, Chile, Villarrica.
Tags: , , ,

Buenos Aires VAAC (home page; message archive) issued three advisories on 4 and 5 September 2010 reporting emissions from Villarrica volcano in Chile: on 4 September a thin ash plume, very light, was identified extending 60 nautical miles NE of the volcano (4 September 2130Z), and on 5 September continuous emission was reported, although it was noted that low clouds were hampering observations (5 September 0500Z). In each case the source of the information was GOES-12 satellite data. No further reports have been issued, and this activity remains unconfirmed.

(The Villarrica Visual Observation Project have a live webcam for Villarrica. There are also four Villarrica webcams accessible from the Observatorio Volcanológico de los Andes del Sur home page, although they do not always show up-to-date images.)
