Momotombo , Masaya , Telica , Nicaragua : Current activity.

Momotombo volcano.
During the weekend, no explosion has been recorded on the volcano. A background microseismicity persists, suggesting that small gas and ash explosions may occur at any time.
As for its seismic activity, an earthquake measuring 1.7 million was recorded in the North West of Momotombo.
Seismic amplitude in real time (RSAM) is at a low level, less than 90 units.

From this morning, specialists from Ineter and experts from the University of South Florida, are going to continue the study of this volcano, conduct field work an observation, measurement of gas and analysis of the volcanic material deposited on the slopes of Momotombo.
They also work to make a three-dimensional model of the volcano, which will be essential to evaluate the different volcanic hazards of Momotombo with great precision.

Masaya volcano.

The Santiago crater lava lake maintains its strong mix with low emissions. He continues to record a high volcanic tremor.
Seismic amplitude in real time shows moderate to strong values between 300 and 1100 units.
As for its seismic activity, an earthquake measuring M 2.4 was recorded in the southeast of the caldera of Masaya.

Telica volcano.
The Telica volcano remains with a high micro-seismicity and low outgassing
Lava is continuously observed in the crater.

Seismic amplitude in real time has low values, below 80 units.
At 1:41 p.m. yesterday, an earthquake measuring M 1.8 was recorded in the north of Telica volcano without causing changes in volcanic activity.
