It said the weak explosion produced a plume, which was detected by the Himawari-8 Satellite and reported to the agency by the Tokyo Volcanic Ash Advisory Center.“The seismic and infrasound signals are not typical of known volcanic processes and are currently being evaluated together with other potential sources, e.g. aircraft activity, ordnance disposal, and others,” said Phivolcs.

It added that there has been very low seismic activity in the past days and geochemical survey of the Pinatubo Crater Lake this November 2021 yielded “low diffuse volcanic CO2 flux (257 tonnes/day),” discounting magmatic activity beneath the edifice.Phivolcs advised local government units (LGUs) to prohibit entry into the Pinatubo crater until the source of Tuesday’s explosion has been determined. headtopics.com
