Roundup of Global Volcanic Activity

Colima (Western Mexico): The volcano’s activity remains as (very) slow extrusion of viscous lava. The lava flow on the upper southern flank is still active, about 500 m long and forms a flat, broad tongue. It advances very slowly. When observed last night, every few minutes or so, small glowing avalanches detached from its front. Explosive activity is minor, limited to rare and very small strombolian-type explosions at the summit lava dome.
