Taal Volcano’s sulfur dioxide emission reaches new record high

The highest level of sulfur dioxide emission from Taal Volcano was recorded today, according to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs).

In its 4:15 pm advisory on Sunday, Phivolcs said Taal spewed an average of 22,628 tonnes of sulfur dioxide per day – a new all-time high.

This was higher than the average of 14,699 tonnes of sulfur dioxide per day recorded on Saturday.

The agency added that a total of 26 “strong and very shallow” low frequency volcanic earthquakes associated with magmatic degassing have been recorded beneath the eastern part of the Volcano Island.

“Some of these earthquakes were reportedly accompanied by rumbling and weakly felt by fish cage caretakers off the northeastern shorelines of Volcano Island.”

“These observation parameters may indicate that an eruption similar to the 1 July 2021 event may occur anytime soon,” Phivolcs warned.

Phivolcs raised Taal Volcano’s alert level to 3 late last week following a phreatomagmatic eruption, which means there’s an interaction of steam, water, and magma.
