The northern portion of the main crater rim, in the vicinity of Daang Kastila Trail, can also become hazardous when fumarolic
or degassing activity along existing fissures suddenly increases.
gases mainly comprise the volatile components of [H.sub.2]O, C[O.sub.2], S[O.sub.2], HCl, and HF, but high- temperature fumarolic
gases (>400[degrees]C) also commonly transport many metallic and nonmetallic compounds, which have sufficiently high vapor pressure at elevated temperatures.
These are the most significant eruptions in a cycle of increased activity that started in 2007 with significant changes in seismicity and fumarolic
activity (Soto & Mora, 2012).
Under the Phivolcs volcanic activity protocol, alert level five equates to actual hazardous volcanic eruption while 1 indicated "low level seismic, fumarolic
, other unrest."
The chemistry of fumarolic
vapor and thermal spring discharges from the Nevado del Ruiz volcanic magmatic hydrothermal system, Colombia.
Topics include case studies of compositional discrimination in Hungarian volcanites, Scottish limestone, Russian cassiterite, and in an Italian volcanic fumarolic
field, with other applications in studies canonical variate vector components and tertiary sandstone composition in an evaluation of the Dickinson model.
The mineral formed as a sublimate directly from fumarolic
gas and is associated with a number of other sublimate minerals including cannizzarite, galenobismutite, pyrite and an undefined Fe-K-Si-bearing phase.
Studies of volatiles (e.g., [H.sub.2]O, C[O.sub.2], Cl, F, S, B, Be), in particular Cl, in Hawaiian and Austral Islands basaltic glass and olivine-hosted melt inclusions suggest that intruding magmas commonly assimilate subsurface seawater, hydrothermal brines or brine-impregnated oceanic crust, and fumarolic
deposits (Lassiter et al., 2002; Hauri, 2002; Davis et al., 2003).

activity recently increases at the summit craters.
The topics include insights into regional hydrothermal activity and implications for volcano monitoring of the chemistry of spring waters and fumarolic
gases encircling Santa Mariia volcano in Guatemala, and the eruptive history of Costa Rica's Turrialba volcano and potential hazards from future eruptions.
The crater has a diameter of 2.4 km and is occupied by dacitic domes with fumarolic
activity (Cepeda et al., 1995; Cepeda and Cortes, 1999).
