Piton de la Fournaise, La Réunion : The eruptive activity observed on the site of the eruption is very stable.

Wednesday’s activity Bulletin September 9, 2015 at 10:00 am (local time)

The eruption that began on August 24, 2015 at 18:50 continues.

On the morning of the seventeenth day the observed trend continues. The eruptive activity observed on the site of the eruption is very stable for more than ten days (building a cone containing two lava lakes, several small ephemeral streams at the exit of the tunnel and a long flow of a two kilometers).

These observations are confirmed by the remote measurements (satellite and DOAS) for estimating the production of lava (flow) of about 5 m3 / s.

Of course, this constancy is an average over the period. Occasional variations are observed.
The eruptive tremor recorded at the observatory also remained virtually constant until September 7. Since then, he has initiated a steady decline and is still alive currently at a relatively high level.
