Cotopaxi volcano (Ecuador): surveillance overflights, no significant changes in activity

Ash emissions from Cotopaxi volcano during the overflight on 26 Jan (image: IGEPN)On 20 and 26 January, the local observatory Instituto Geofísico (IGEPN), in collaboration with the Republic of Ecuador, the Ministry of Defense, the Risk Management department and the Ecuadorian Air Force performed two surveillance overflights of the volcano. During the overflight on 20 January, no ash emissions were observed. However, the second observation flight on 26 January allowed volcanologists to watch sporadic gas emissions containing some amount of light-to-moderate ash depositing on the southern slope due to the prevailing wind pattern. Acquired thermal images haven't shown any significant changes in comparison to previous flights. The maximum detected temperature reached only 30 °C. Continuing gas and ash emissions prevent…

Strong thermal anomaly from the crater and dense ash emissions at Sangay as seen from space (image: Sentinel-2)The activity at the volcano remains unchanged. Continuing lava flows continue to be active on the SE flank. Near-frequent vulcanian eruptions continue to produce ash columns sending pyroclastic material to approx. 6,1 km (20,000 ft) in the north-northwestern direction. Most of the ejected hot, juvenile and glowing material slid down along the southeastern flank in the form of incandescent avalanches. Satellite-based measurements of SO2 concentrations were detected in plumes of about 1,551 tonnes on 3 February. Source: Instituto Geofísico volcano activity update 5 February 2023

Brazil sinks rusting old aircraft carrier in the Atlantic

Brazil sank a decommissioned aircraft carrier in the Atlantic Ocean off its northeast coast, the Brazilian Navy said, despite warnings from environmentalists that the rusting 1960s French-built ship would pollute the sea and the marine food chain. The 32,000-tonne carrier had been floating offshore for three months since Turkey refused it entry to be scrapped there because it was an environmental hazard and the ship was towed back to Brazil. The carrier was scuttled in a "planned and controlled sinking" late on Friday, the Navy said in a statement, that would "avoid logistical, operational, environmental and economic losses to the Brazilian state," it said.
