Sabancaya Volcano (the “Tongue of Fire”) Erupts to at least 31,000 feet (9.4 km)

Sabancaya volcano, located in Peru, has been experiencing DAILY ash-ejections to around 27,000 feet (8.2 km) for the past few months. Previous ejections have rarely topped 28,000 feet (8.5 km), however today’s puff (Aug 05) is one of those exceptions.

The Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Buenos Aires has confirmed the uptick, warning of a thick volcanic ash plume rising to at least 31,000 feet (9.4 km) and moving 15 kts in a SW direction .

Particulates ejected to altitudes above 32,800 feet (10 km) –and into the stratosphere– have a direct cooling effect on the planet. 

Currently no footage of today’s eruption is available (camera.volcanoyt.com could have something soon though).

The below video is that of an explosion from August 2018:

Sabancaya has been incredibly active since its latest eruptive period began on Nov 06, 2016.

The phase is ongoing but has already been confirmed as a 3 on the VEI, according to volcano.si.edu

Sabancaya volcano (meaning “tongue of fire” in the Quechua Indian language) is located in the southern Peruvian Andes and is covered with several glaciers.

Historic records of past eruptions date back to 1750, but its name appears in written accounts from 1595 AD. 

Eruption list: 2016 (ongoing), 2015, 2014, 2003, 2000, 1998, 1997, 1990-95, 1988, 1986, 1784, 1750, <1595(?)

Seismic and Volcanic activity has been correlated to changes in our sun.

The recent global uptick in earthquakes and volcanic eruptions is likely attributed to the drop-off in solar activity, coronal holes, a waning magnetosphere, and the influx of Cosmic Rays penetrating silica-rich magma.
