In general and particularly for that period, in its seismic monitoring parameters and satellite. The product mainly emitted by the volcano corresponds to steam and magmatic gas. The average seismic events for this period are: 56 LPs / day, 4 HIB / day, 12 Trem / day and 6 VTP. The number of VTP or proximal earthquakes recorded volcano tectonic (less than 6 km from the crater of the volcano Sabancaya) were very low, showing only an average of 6 VTP / day. We has been successful in locate only three VTP events, one being of magnitude 2.6 ML.
There was a second temperature measurement in the crater, registered on October 1, which gives a value of 378 °, a value comparable to that of July 2015 (391 ° C).
The maximum height of fumarole vents remained similar to the previous report, reaching 600-1500 m above the crater. We could discern whitish gas (water vapor) and sporadic emissions bluish (magmatic gases).
The satellite monitoring of the density of SO2 and thermal anomalies showed no significant values.
