The Volcanological Observatory Ingemmet (OVI) warned that the eruption process of Ubinas volcano, located in the Moquegua region, and continues activity may slightly increase in the next few days or mild to moderate explosions occur.
According to the monitoring of last week, experts commented that the seismic activity was dominated by massive earthquakes rate Volcano Tectonic (VT) that are associated with the fracturing of rocks within the volcano.
It has also been sporadically Hybrid types identified events associated the possible rise of magma. Specialists also detected slight bluish continuous emissions and gases containing water vapor emissions reached up to 1,100 meters above the crater rim of the volcano.
It is very possible that the increase of internal pressure stages (days: 29 October, 19 November and December 5) are in connection with rock fracturing produced by ascending magma movement, in pulses, with minimal resistance through the conduit, to very superficial volcanic levels. Low to moderate thermal anomalies in the registration thresholds (30 October-19 November and 5 December) were detected.
