Mexico – March 7th, 2013

Popocatépetl Volcano, southeast of Mexico City (visible as a grey area by the left edge), Mexico, is currently erupting strongly. Here, a white plume of steam and ash fans out as winds carry it eastward. A new lava dome had been observed growing in the volcano’s crater until it was removed by an explosive eruption this morning. Seismograms indicate strong volcanic tremor generated by gas and magma movement (click here for previous images).
