Geology Picture of the Day – ChaitÃ©n Eruption
Today’s geology picture of the day is from the ongoing Chaiten eruption (which started unexpectedly at the beginning of this month in Chile). Ralph Harrington at The Volcanism Blog has been providing wonderful updates on the eruption.
This photo was captured on May 6 and shows electrostatic discharges as a result of the ash cloud above the volcano.
