As I've been pre-occupied with my upcoming trip to Ecuador and having tasks to do, this is only going to be a quick post.
During February three Nicaraguan volcanoes were active. Lava lake activity continues to persist on Masaya Volcano and Momotombo was very active producing moderate to strong explosions. Telica also had explosions and incandescence in the crater was observed on webcam during the night.
Tungurahua started erupting during late February, and continued into March. Strombolian activity was observed.
NYIRAGONGO, DR CONGO
What was initially thought to be a secondary lava lake, a new hornito was formed inside the crater of Nyiragongo emitting a lava flow which flowed towards the lava lake.
ALAID, KURILE ISLANDS
Satellite images detetced an eruption occuring on the Alaid Volcano in the Kurile Islands, to the south of the Kamchatka Peninsula.
