The seismic and volcanic activity of Ticsani volcano is currently monitored by the IGP–OVS, with the new telemetry system and temporary stations.
The type of VT earthquakes (or seismic fracture) are recorded in an average of 11 VT / day for a total of 137 events. Seismicity of this type is still low compared to previous months. However, this activity is dominant on this volcano.
The seismic activity LP (linked to the passage of fluids), remains low. Only a total of 10 LP events were recorded throughout the period.
On August 17 at 13: 17hrs (UTC) an earthquake of 2.8 ml of energy, which was located 8 km east of the volcano Ticsani occurred. The earthquake was recorded by the Ticsani and Ubinas network. During this period, there were no significant emission density values of SO2 gas. For its part, the Mirova system did not detect thermal abnormalities.
