The 2,463-meter volcano has had eruptions described as phreatomagmatic
(magma and water driven) types since Monday, four lava fountainings as high as 500-700 meters above the summit and lava flows that cascaded down to the 6-km PDZ.
And then again at 12:45 pm there was what we call a phreatomagmatic
eruption wherein it produced an ash column about 10 kilometers high and it also produced what we call a pyroclastic flows around the volcano," said Paul Alanis, a science research specialist at the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology.
He said they expect more phreatomagmatic
eruption (combination of water and magma), in the coming days until the edifice goes back to the normal level.
Ebeko is characterized by occasional phreatomagmatic
eruptions and abundant permanent fumaroles and thermal springs .
The Volcano of Cancarix is an exceptional example of volcanic deposits characterised by phreatomagmatic
activity followed by lamproitic extrusion (Seghedi et al., 2007).
He connects phreatomagmatic
activity with a low magma flux during the initial stages of volcanism, where the vents are not open, or with a time of rapid readjustement and maar collapse.
Two papers study the evolution of the Santa Ana crater lake during 1992-2007, focusing on the 2006-2007 period when the lake drowned the eruptive vent following the 2005 phreatomagmatic
eruption, and test a GPS monitoring system on the site.
According to Wikipedia, geologists agree that Al Wahba Crater is classified as a Mr Crater which is caused by a phreatomagmatic
eruption-an explosion caused by groundwater coming into contact with hot lava or magma.
During the eruption of a single volcano, the eruption conditions may change on timescales of seconds, so that fragmentation processes due to explosive eruptions (see Section 2.2), phreatomagmatic
eruptions, pyroclastic flows, and coignimbrite clouds are superimposed.
The properties of Tepetate depend on the volcanic origin of this material, mainly through phreatomagmatic
