Head of the La Soufriere Monitoring team, Professor Richard Robertson, says activities at La Soufriere continue to be on the decline. Robertson provided the update on NBC Radio’s Eying La Soufriere program.
“Activity at La Soufriere continues to remain low since the explosions and the trembling that we had in April. In the last couple of days, we’ve had a few earthquakes, we tend to have a few earthquakes recorded from time to time. The activity continues to be symptomatic of something that is in decline” he said.
Professor Robertson noted that sulphur dioxide fluxes have continued to drop, saying that this has been happening for some time now since May, and that is expected that it will get to the stage where it is undetectable.
According to Dr Robertson, he will spend less time giving updates on the radio as there will be nothing new to report daily since the volcano has basically gone quiet.
The team will now focus their attention on aerial re-mapping. The lead scientist said the remapping of the volcano will not only help the Belmont Observatory but the government when making decisions.
