Eruptions

Ruapehu Update

Ruapehu Erupting, 1996

Looks like we should expect an eruption at Ruapehu (New Zealand) any time now. Tremors are ongoing, along with increased volcanic gas emissions (specifically SO2 here) and warmer temperatures in Ruapehu’s crater lake. All of these ingredients point to a higher probability of eruption.

However, with all that begin said, the Alert Level at Ruapehu remains at 1 (out of 5).
