Spain / La Palma , Cumbre Vieja :
November 08, 2021, 09:00 UTC. Eruptive activity continues on La Palma.
Since the last communication, 42 earthquakes have been located in the area affected by the volcanic reactivation of Cumbre Vieja, 6 of these earthquakes were felt by the population, having reached the maximum intensity in the epicentral zone of IV ( EMS98).
The most significant earthquake was the one that occurred at 8:40 p.m. (UTC) yesterday, with a magnitude of 4.5 mbLg at a depth of 36 km and felt with intensity IV on the island of La Palma. Over the period considered, 1 earthquake was located at a depth of about 30 km, the rest of the hypocenters of the period are located at a shallower depth, at about 12 km.
The amplitude of the volcanic tremor signal is at high average levels, with intensifying pulses.
The island’s network of permanent GNSS stations shows that the elevation recorded on days 4 and 5 at station LP03, which is closest to the eruptive centers, has completely reversed. However, the southwest deformation recorded by the station is still in progress.
In the rest of the stations, a slight deflation persisted, possibly linked to deep seismicity.
In view of the calibrated image, a column height of 2,700 m is estimated at 08:45 UTC with a West-South-West direction.
Yesterday, the thermal and visual camera was moved from the north flank to the east of the volcano to continue the continuous acquisition of images in both spectra.
“This Saturday around 6:00 p.m., the lava emission rate increased and the flows that emerged from the south of the effusive focus are directed west on the previous flows. The lavas that continue to occupy the central sector occasionally overflow without affecting the new surfaces. In particular, we highlight the southwestern advance that extends north of the mountain of El Cogote, ”explained Carmen López, responsible for volcanic monitoring at the National Geographic Institute.
The eruption of the volcano Cumbre Vieja, on the island of La Palma, reached within hours of this Sunday 50 days of activity with no data indicating a near-term completion.
Lava continues to pass over previous flows, mainly through the central area and volcanic tubes, but without affecting new surfaces. There is only one advance of a lava flow to the southwest, which flows north of Cogote Mountain.
Seismicity continues to decrease, although it is possible that tremors felt by the population will continue to occur. The distortion recorded at Jedey’s station reversed.
The height of the ash diffusion cloud is 2,700 meters. Sulfur dioxide emissions are 10,000 tonnes per day, but have continued to decline since October 25.

Alaska , Pavlof :
55°25’2″ N 161°53’37 » W,
Summit Elevation 8261 ft (2518 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: WATCH
Current Aviation Color Code: ORANGE
Low-level eruptive activity continues. Seismicity remains elevated, and small explosions were more frequent over the past day compared to the previous week. Seismic tremor continues to be variable, with a several hour period of semi-regular tremor bursts observed, interspersed with more discontinuous activity. Satellite and web camera images were obscured by clouds, but very small ash clouds were likely generated by the explosive events.
Small explosions accompanied by low-level ash emissions could happen at any time, and are typically a hazard in the immediate vicinity of the summit. The level of unrest at Pavlof can change quickly and the progression to more significant eruptive activity can occur with little or no warning.
Pavlof is monitored by local seismic and infrasound sensors, satellite data, web cameras, and remote infrasound and lightning networks.

Iceland , Bárðarbunga :
Strong earthquake in Bárðarbunga volcano this morning
At 07:20 UTC today (6-November-2021) an earthquake with magnitude of Mw4,0 took place in Bárðarbunga volcano. A swarm of smaller earthquakes happened in the same area before and after the strongest earthquake.
Green star in Bárðarbunga volcano shows the location of the Mw4,0 earthquake.

This earthquake activity shows that Bárðarbunga volcano continues to inflate after the eruption in 2014 to 2015. This does not indicate that an eruption is about to happen. A lot more earthquake activity and time has to happen before an new eruption happens in Bárðarbunga volcano.
