Mayon, on Luzon Island in the Philippines, entered a new eruptive phase on 13 January 2018, according to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS), Philippines’ Geological Agency. This phase included steam-driven eruptions and flows from a new lava dome growing at the summit of the volcano.

A good understanding of the time scales of volcanic unrest and the dynamics of magma ascent are critical for the preparedness and mitigation of eruption hazards.
