Chaiten Volcano, Chile - John Seach

A new dome is forming in the summit crater at Chaiten volcano, Chile. On overflight on 30th October 2008 showed the presence of a new dome in the north east of the crater, forming on the top of the May 2008 dome. The new dome has a sloping base with a diameter of about 300 m and a height of about 150 m. Currently, much of the seismic activity of the volcano is associated with dome growth and collapse.
