Guayota’s lament. Thus define Volcanological Institute of the Canary Islands (Involcan) the sound captured in the last seismic swarm recorded on Teide recorded today.
“To make the frequencies of these seismic signals heard by humans we had to speed them up 500 times. In this video you can see and hear the seismic signals recorded by the Canarian Seismic Network, operated by INVOLCAN, between 05:50 a.m. and 08:50 a.m. (Canarian time) today, July 12, 2022”, they affirm in his official Facebook account in relation to Guayota’s lament.
“You can see how the events at the beginning are very close in time while in the final part they are heard more apart. This characteristic is very common in swarms of this type and reflects the progressive rebalancing of the pressure gradients inside the hydrothermal system of Tenerife”, they highlight.
Guayota’s lament was heard at dawn
The Volcanological Institute of the Canary Islands (Involcan) A seismic swarm has been recorded on Teide since 5 am on Tuesday, these are hybrid events of very low magnitude, which does not imply a greater chance of a rash.
Involcan reports on its social networks that the Canarian Seismic Network operated by this entity has identified at least 350 small seismic events up to 9 am.
This seismic swarm has characteristics very similar to those that were recorded in Tenerife on October 2, 2016, June 14, 2019 and June 10, 2022.
The most likely origin of this type of swarm is the movement of fluids such as steam, gas or water, inside the hydrothermal system of the El Teide volcano, adds Involcan.
