Eruptions

Ecuadorian volcano update

I have a few bits of news about one (of the three) volcanoes erupting in Ecuador. Reports from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office of Ecuador says the volcano is still erupting ash and there is evidence that lava is erupting from the summit vent. Not surprisingly, there is a travel ban on both Reventador and Tungurahua.

    If Chaiten is such a rare and potentially important event are there appropriate experts (not some government bureaucrats) monitoring the volcano closely to record the details for posterity?
