Busy busy analysing on the multicollector ICP-MS today (but not busy enough to miss this).

Here's your weekly volcano news roundup from the USGS/Smithsonian GVP.

Highlights (not including Sarychev Peak) include:

  • Continued dome growth and degassing at Bezymianny in Russia. Starting next year, there will be live webcams for three of the major volcanoes (Bezymianny, Kliuchevskoi, and Shiveluch) on the Kamchatka peninsula! Now, that is exciting news.

  • The glowing coming from the vent in the Halema'uma'u Crater at Kilauea in Hawai'i is still prominent. The lava levels in the crater have been rising and falling almost 100 meters / 300 feet in a day.

  • Steam, minor ash and some reports of flowing at the summit of Llaima in Chile.

  • Following up the reports of activity at Tungurahua in Ecuador, new reports have lava fountains up to 500 meters / 1600 feet over the summit during last week. The eruption sounds a little more impressive than has been suggested.
