Piton de la Fournaise volcano. Piton de la Fournaise is one of the world's most active volcanoes. Piton de la Fournaise volcano is located on Meeting mantle plume. The volcano is located in the NE part of the meeting. A nested caldera was created by two large eruptions. The summit consists of two craters, the largest Cratere Bory and active participation Cratere Dolomieu. A volcanic eruption occurs almost every year in Piton de la Fournaise volcano. Volcanic activity consists of the emission of lava and small explosions. The ash occurs rarely. Pele's hair sometimes occur. The caldera of Piton de la Fournaise volcano contains a dense network of sub-radial and concentric cracks open and eruptive fissures on the summit cone similar to the Galapagos Islands, except on a smaller scale. 2010 Eruption October. An eruption began at Piton de la Fournaise volcano, meeting at 7:10 pm (local time) on October 14, 2010. The eruption site is located at an altitude of 2000 m on the south side of the volcano. The events have accelerated in the afternoon. The seismic crisis (characterized by numerous earthquakes in the volcano's base) started at 1:30 pm. Peaked at 3 pm. A. Larger than average earthquake occurred at 2:50 pm, which resulted in the collapse of the inner walls of the crater Dolomieu seismic crisis, reflecting rising magma in the volcano edifice, has slowed after 3 pm. According to information provided by the Volcano Observatory, the eruption occurred near the place known as "Château-Fort". January. An eruption began at Piton de la Fournaise volcano, January 2 Dolomieu crater flowed 2010.Lava. The eruption lasted 2 days. 2009 Eruption The eruption of short duration at the Piton de la Fournaise volcano was over after a few hours on November 5, 2009. For the first time since 2007, the lava has flowed out of the crater. Lava flows were widely visible from the shore of the Meeting, and at dawn yesterday were only active fumaroles. Lava flows were no longer active and there was a gradual decrease in the intensity of volcanic tremor. From 5:30 pm on November 5 earthquakes occurred at a rate of one to two per minute, then at 7:30 pm seismic crisis lasted for one hour, followed by a pause. Around 21:00 volcanic tremor marked the beginning of the eruption. The volcano always a show with lava flows and illuminating the sky attracting attention motorists between San Felipe and Piton Sainte-Rose. Motorists traveling on the road were the first witnesses of the lava flow and raise the alarm at 9:15 pm. They described mostly lava fountains and flows. The rash consists of multiple lava flows rapidly moving down the slope. Two cracks appeared to have opened on the east side, near the summit. San Felipe Police encourage motorists to be careful not to park anywhere to see the eruption. No road closures. Residents heard of the eruption on the radio and began to come, but the people were not very large due to night time. Between 11:10 and 11:15 pm, volcanic tremor was almost gone. Up until 12:30 pm of a hundred people stood at the foot of the rampe du Tremblet in the Grand Brûlé and observed lava flows. On the morning of November 6 at 6:45 am, a police helicopter hovered overhead. The reconnaissance flight confirmed that two open fractures between the south and the east of the summit crater Dolomieu, which produced lava flows away from the road. The volcanologists summary is as follows: at 20.50, the eruption has started in the south within the crater cliff Dolomieu. At 2105 hours, the crack widened and opened to the east-southeast near the crater rim of Dolomieu. At 21h20: a second crack in the eastern slope of the summit cone. Two lava flows were visible on the flanks of Piton de la Fournaise. The volcano has been mired in relative calm. The situation remains unstable. A second rash may begin at any time scientists warned the volcano observatory. On Monday December 14, 2009 a summit eruption began at Piton de la Fournaise volcano on the southern edge of the crater Dolomieu at 18:45 (local time). The eruption followed a seismic crisis and summit deformation. Quake began at 18:30. The duration of the eruption was six hours, which was one of the shortest in recent decades in the volcano. 2009 Crisis seismic A seismic crisis began at Piton de la Fournaise volcano, Reunion on Wednesday October 14, 2009. The swarm earthquakes generated 338 with a maximum magnitude of 2.3. Gradual deformation trend continues, with about 1.5 cm of displacement in two weeks. No change in gas chemistry has detectado.Análisis data suggests that the process continues in magmatic intrusion depth. This significant seismicity has been associated with small deformation Dolomieu northern flank. Small avalanches have occurred within Dolomieu, especially towards the end of the seismic crisis. The alert level 1 is kept in place. Public access to the top of the volcano, and the helicopter landing on the volcano are prohibited. The frequency and intensity of the seismicity are increasing gradually volcano Piton de la Fournaise in Reunion. The trend of gradual deformation of the volcano continues, particularly in the northern part of Dolomieu and near Soufriere. On Friday October 16 according to data found by Actimundi, the seismic network recorded an earthquake every seventy seconds, with a maximum magnitude of 3. It is a remarkable intensity of Piton de la Fournaise volcano, where earthquakes rarely exceed magnitude 2. Earthquakes are now at a depth of 2000 m, indicating magma has not yet reached the surface. The pre-eruptive pattern of Piton de la Fournaise volcano is marked by several seismic crises, interrupted by periods of rest. There has been no change in the chemical composition of the gas in the volcano. Alert level 1 (eruption imminent or likely) remains from the October 7, after the seismic crisis in the first place, and access to the top of the volcano is prohibited. 2008 Eruption An eruption began at Piton de la Fournaise volcano on Sunday September 21, 2008. Lava formed a small pond at the bottom of the crater Dolomieu powered by a fissure on the west side. The eruption was accompanied by earthquakes ten. High levels of sulfur dioxide have been reported in the volcano. This is the first eruption of Piton de la Fournaise volcano from the great eruption in April 2007, which was called the "eruption of the century."
