[79][80], In 1962, there were reportedly no fumaroles within the amphitheatre,[81] though fumaroles occur in the amphitheatre close to the three vents. [22] Vegetation in the area of Huaynaputina is scarce, and on the pumice deposits from the 1600 eruption it only occurs during the wet season. If an eruption similar to the 1600 event occurred, it would likely lead to a high death toll and cause substantial socioeconomic disruption. Huaynaputina erupted in southern Peru on Feb. 19, 1600, driving volcanic mudflows that destroyed villages for many miles around and spewing a huge column of … [74] Reportedly, tsunamis occurred during the eruption as well. This view is from the east into a 2.5-km-wide complex caldera that is breached widely to the east. VOLUME 89 NUMBER 15 8 APRIL 2008 EOS, TRANSACTIONS, AMERICAN GEOPHYSICAL UNION PAGES 141–148 Global Impacts of the 1600 Eruption of Peru’s Huaynaputina Volcano Witter and Self The human impacts of the 1815 eruption of Tambora volcano in eastern Indonesia [18] Many Peruvian volcanoes are poorly studied because they are remote and difficult to access. Huaynaputina is located in Southern Peru in South America. [90] Cerro Reventado and Ullucan appear to be fed from magmatic water and a deep reservoir,[84] while Agua Blanca is influenced by surface waters. Cacti can be found on rocky outcrops and valley bottoms.[294]. [117], Damage to infrastructure and economic resources of southern Peru was severe. [113] This third stage destroyed the lava dome and formed the third vent, which then began to settle along the faults as the magma underneath the vent was exhausted. It is the largest volcanic eruption recorded in the South American history! [193] A darkened lunar eclipse described by observers in Graz, Austria, in 1601 may have been the consequence of the Huaynaputina aerosols.[192]. In view of this, the viceroy of Peru sent reinforcement troops to El Callao. Such recurring explosive activity represents a significant challenge for regions typically hosting several million people (e.g. [10], The oceanic Nazca tectonic plate is subducting at a rate of 10.3 centimetres per year (4.1 in/year) beneath the continental part of the South American tectonic plate; this process is responsible for volcanic activity and the uplift of the Andes mountains and Altiplano plateau. [7] Ubinas is the most active volcano in Peru;[8] Huaynaputina, El Misti, Sabancaya, Ticsani, Tutupaca, Ubinas and Yucamane have been active in historical time, while Sara Sara, Coropuna, Ampato, Casiri and Chachani are considered to be dormant. In the Central Andes, large Plinian eruptions (Volcanic Explosivity Index ≥ 5) occur at a relatively high frequency, i.e. This is the case of the 1600 AD eruption of the Huaynaputina volcano that is considered the most ex-plosive eruption recorded in the Andes, in the last five hundred years of history [Thouret et al., 2002]. [66][32] The pre-1600 topography of the volcano was described as "a low ridge in the center of a Sierra",[2] and it is possible that a cluster of lava domes existed at the summit prior to the 1600 eruption[73] and was blown away during the event. [16] The rising magma appears to have intercepted an older hydrothermal system[98] that existed down to depths of about 3 km (1.9 mi) below the vents,[100] parts of which were expelled during the eruption. [170] Reportedly, fish were killed by the flood in the Pacific Ocean at the mouth of the river. There are fumaroles in its amphitheatre, and hot springs occur in the region, some of which have been associated with Huaynaputina. The third vent is steep-walled, with a depth of 80 m (260 ft); it contains a pit that is 200-metre (660 ft) wide, set within a small mound that is in part nested within the second vent. Human death toll Volcano Location Year Source(s) 71,000 to 250,100+ (regarded as having caused the Year Without a Summer, creating famines and epidemics across the Northern Hemisphere) : Mount Tambora: Indonesia: 1815: 36,000+ Most of these deaths were not attributed to the eruption itself, but to the tsunami generated by it. It was the site of the largest historical eruption in South America, which occurred in 1600 and erupted an estimated 30 cubic km of dacitic tephra, including ash fall and pyroclastic flow deposits. [120] Evacuation of the area directly around the volcano would be difficult owing to the poor state of the roads, and the tephra fallout would impact much of Peru's economy. The eruption ejected a … Huaynaputina volcano (its name meaning "new volcano") is a small volcano located in southern Peru 26 km south of Ubinas volcano. [24] These include pyroclastic flow dunes that crop out from underneath the tephra. [267] The frosts destroyed crops, causing famines[268] severe enough that cannibalism took place. [76] In Arequipa, a new patron saint, San Genaro,[a] was named following the eruption and veneration of Martha – who was believed to have power over earthquakes – increased; she became the city's sole patron saint in 1693. The explosion sent mudflows as far as the Pacific Ocean, 75 miles (120 km) away, and appears to have affected the global climate. The initial results are presented in an article in Eos, the transactions of the American Geophysical Union. There are reports that a sacrificial offering was underway at the volcano a few days before the eruption. This compositional change may explain changes in the eruption phenomena during the 1600 activity[57] as the "Dacite 1" rocks erupted early during the 1600 event were more buoyant and contained more gas and thus drove a Plinian eruption, while the latter "Dacite 2" rocks were more viscous and only generated Vulcanian eruptions. Huaynaputina volcano (its name meaning "new volcano") is a small volcano located in southern Peru 26 km south of Ubinas volcano. The duration of the eruption is not well constrained but may have lasted up to 12-19 hours. [291], Between 4,000–5,000 metres (13,000–16,000 ft) in elevation mean temperatures are about 6 °C (43 °F) with cold nights,[292] while at Omate, mean temperatures reach 15 °C (59 °F) with little seasonal variation. [6] Other names for the volcano include Chequepuquina, Chiquimote, Guayta, Omate and Quinistaquillas. [22], In the third stage, Vulcanian eruptions took place at Huaynaputina and deposited another ash layer, which is thinner than that produced by the first stage eruption and appears to be partly of phreatomagmatic origin. [256] It is likely that the 1601 crop failure was among the worst in Finland's history,[257] and it led to changes in the social structure of Ostrobothnia. It has no prominent topographic expression and lies within a 2.5-km-wide depression formed by edifice collapse and further excavated by glaciers within an older edifice of Tertiary-to-Pleistocene age. [179] Some indigenous people organized their own rituals which included feasting on whatever food and drink they had and battering dogs that were hanged alive. [14] A colonial wine industry in southern Peru was wiped out;[79] chronists tell how all wines were lost during the eruption and tsunamis that accompanied it. Huaynaputina (whose name means "new volcano") is a relatively inconspicuous volcano that was the source of the largest historical eruption of South America in 1600 CE. Huaynaputina (whose name means "new volcano") is a relatively inconspicuous volcano that was the source of the largest historical eruption of South America in 1600 CE. Content on this website is for information only. [2], Slumps have buried parts of the amphitheatre. Views expressed here do not necessarily reflect those of ScienceDaily, its staff, its contributors, or its partners. In Andean mythology, earth motions are often associated with snakes. [69] A debris avalanche deposit that crops out on the eastern side of the Río Tambo, opposite to the amphitheatre,[24] may have been emplaced not long before the 1600 eruption. The 16 day eruption of Huaynaputina volcano in 1600 was the largest historical eruption in South America, and one of the largest in the world in the past 1000 years. [51] The climate impact has been noted in the growth rings of a centuries-old ocean quahog (a mollusc) individual that was found somewhere in Iceland,[210] as well as in tree rings from Taiwan,[211] eastern Tibet,[c][212] the Urals and Yamal Peninsula in Russia, Canada, the Sierra Nevada[213] and White Mountains both in California[214] and Lake Zaysan in Kazakhstan. Recorded as the largest volcanic explosion in South America, it saw a … [9] In the Central Volcanic Zone, large explosive eruptions with volcanic explosivity index of 6+ occur on average every 2,000 to 4,000 years. [244] Tree ring analysis suggested cooling in Greece,[245] Lapland (Finland),[246] the Pyrenees[247] and central Spain, the Swiss Alps[126] and Switzerland (in 1600) more generally,[248] where reconstructed winter temperatures were the lowest of 1525–1860. [18] It underwent sector collapses and glacial erosion, which altered its appearance and left traces on its flanks. Normally very large volcanic eruptions are accompanied by the formation of a caldera, but exceptions do exist. It was the site of the largest historical eruption in South America, which occurred in 1600 and erupted an estimated 30 cubic km of dacitic tephra, including ash fall and pyroclastic flow deposits. [136] New administrative surveys – so-called revisitas – had to be carried out in the Colca Valley in 1604 after population losses and the effects of the Huaynaputina eruption had reduced the ability of the local population to pay the tributes.

[71][1] The first two eruptions produced pumice falls and pyroclastic flows. [51] An even larger amount of sulfur may have originated from a relic hydrothermal system that underpins the volcano, and whose accumulated sulfur would have been mobilized by the 1600 eruption;[55] some contradictions between the sulfur yield inferred from ice core data and these inferred from the magma composition can be resolved this way. [158], The impact was also noticeable in Arequipa,[159] where up to 1 metre (3.3 ft) of ash fell[160] causing roofs to collapse under its weight. [11], Huaynaputina is in the Omate and Quinistaquillas Districts,[12] which is part of the General Sánchez Cerro Province[13] in the Moquegua Region of southern Peru. Its impact on the region was severe. Occasionally the flows that reached the Pacific Ocean have been described as pyroclastic flows. [192] Sunspots and vivid sunsets and sunrises were noted. [46] A 40-by-60-kilometre (25 mi × 37 mi) magma reservoir may underpin this volcanic system. The subduction is oblique, leading to strike-slip faulting. [293] This results in an arid climate, where little erosion occurs and volcanic products are well preserved. The summit elevation is 4850 m or 15,912 ft. A subduction zone forms at convergent plate tectonic plate boundaries where one plate is forced down into the mantle. [115] Closer to the vents, inhabitants of the village of Puquina saw large tongues of fire rising into the sky from Huaynaputina before they were enveloped by raining pumice and ash. [60], Pyroclastic flows ran down the slopes of the volcano, entered the Río Tambo valley and formed dams on the river's course, probably mainly at the mouth of the Quebrada Aguas Blancas;[2] one of the two dammed lakes[22] was about 28 km (17 mi) long. Still, there are about 30,000 people living in the surrounding area, with another 800,000 in Arequipa. [203] The vast tephra fallout of the eruption fell in part over the sea; the fertilizing effect of the tephra may have induced a draw-down of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. The eruption had significant effects on Earth's climate; temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere decreased, and millions of tons of acid were deposited. [275], In 1601 Japan, Lake Suwa froze up considerably earlier than normal,[219] and flooding and continuous rains were accompanied by harvest failures. Huaynaputina Volcano, Peru Huaynaputina is a relatively inconspicuous volcano that was the source of one of the largest historical eruptions of the central Andes in 1600 AD. Epidemics ensued,[278] although the epidemics in East Asia erupted under different weather conditions and linking them to the Huaynaputina eruption may not be straightforward. [185] Shamans in the Tambo valley urged a return to old customs,[163] and processions and sacrifices to Huaynaputina took place. Verosub hopes to expand the study by examining records kept by the Jesuit order in Seville, Spain, and from the Ming Dynasty in China. Huaynaputina is a large volcanic crater, lacking an identifiable mountain profile, with an outer stratovolcano and three younger volcanic vents. [136] The city of Arequipa went from being a relatively wealthy city to be a place of famine and disease in the years after the eruption. [128] For comparison, another large Holocene eruption in the Central Andes[129] which exceeded Huaynaputina's in size,[130] the eruption of Cerro Blanco in Argentina about 2,300 ± 60 BCE, erupted a bulk volume of 110 km3 (26 cu mi) of rock, equivalent to a volcanic explosivity index of 7. [146] The ash layer, which may have reached as far as[147] East Rongbuk Glacier at Mount Everest in the Himalaya,[148] has also been used as a tephrochronological marker in Greenland[149] and Antarctic ice cores,[150][151] and proposals have been made to use it as a marker for the onset of the Anthropocene. [259], Ice cores in the Russian Altai Mountains noted a strong cooling around 1601,[260] with tree ring data also recording a cooling of 3.5 °C (6.3 °F). 5.8k members in the Volcanoes community. The name Huaynaputina was given to the volcano after its 1600 eruption;[2] it is also spelled Huayna Putina or Guagua Putina. [30] A fourth vent lies on the southern slope of the composite volcano outside of the amphitheatre[2] and has been described as a maar. The sulfur injected into the stratosphere by that eruption produced a veil of sunlight-reflecting sulfate aerosols. [161] The site of Torata Alta, a former Inka administrative centre, was destroyed during the Huaynaputina eruption and after a brief reoccupation abandoned in favour of Torata. [43] This might reflect either the regional tectonics or the absence of a shallow magma chamber, which prevented the collapse of the chamber from reaching the surface;[57] most of the magma erupted in 1600 originated at 20 km (12 mi) of depth. Huaynaputina was the site of a single catastrophic eruption of VEI 6 in 1600, which was remarkable not only for its size and as the only major explosive eruption in historic times in the Central Andes, but also for its impact on global climate. [183] El Misti had erupted less than two centuries before,[184] and local populations were further concerned that after Huaynaputina, El Misti might erupt next. Department of Geology, University of California, Davis. [8] Volcanic activity does not occur along the entire length of the Andes; where subduction is shallow, there are gaps with little volcanic activity. The climate disruption caused social upheaval in countries as far away as Russia and may have played a role in the onset of the Little Ice Age. Precipitation averages 154.8 millimetres per year (6.09 in/year), falling mainly during a summer wet season between December and March. [126] Stratigraphically, the eruption deposits have been subdivided into five formations. The effects of this eruption and the activity of other volcanoes – namely, large scale flooding – might have induced them to believe that California was an island; this later became one of the most well known cartographic misconceptions of history. [168] Flooding ensued when volcanic dams in the Río Tambo broke,[79] and debris[169] and lahars reached the Pacific Ocean 120[1]–130 km (75–81 mi) away. View of the crater and part of the nearby valley. [192] In Sweden, harvest failures are recorded between 1601–1603,[255] with a rainy spring in 1601 reportedly leading to famine. [101] The pumice was then buried by the ash erupted during this stage, which has been recorded as far as Antarctica. [279] On the other hand, temperatures were not unusually cold in Nepal. [124] Huaynaputina's eruption column was high enough to penetrate the tropopause[125] and influence the climate of Earth. [84] The fumarolic gas composition is dominated by water vapour, with smaller quantities of carbon dioxide and sulfur gases. Some reports of late ash falls may be due to wind-transported ash, and there are no deposits fro… Part of the Central Volcanic Zone of the Andean Volcanic Belt, it is the product of the subduction of the oceanic Nazca tectonic plate beneath the continental part of the South American tectonic plate. The Huaynaputina eruption in 1600 and its cultural dimensions 1. [250], The winter of 1601 was extremely cold in Estonia,[219] Ireland,[251] Latvia and Switzerland,[219] and the ice in the harbour of Riga broke up late. The summit was destroyed in 1600 in an explosion similar to Krakatau in 1883. The 16 day eruption of Huaynaputina volcano in 1600 was the largest historical eruption in South America, and one of the largest in the world in the past 1000 years. Global atmospheric impacts of the 1600 eruption, San Genaro had been called due to his responses to eruptions of. [73] In Arequipa, houses[22] and the cathedral collapsed during mass[167] after an earthquake[71] on 27 February,[94] concomitant with the beginning of the second stage. [58] Crustal interactions and crystal fractionation processes were involved in the genesis of the magmas as well,[59] with the so-called "Dacite 1" geochemical suite forming deep in the crust, while the "Dacite 2" geochemical suite appears to have interacted with the upper crust. A second vent appears to have been about 400-metre (1,300 ft) wide before the development of a third vent, which has mostly obscured the first two. . [52] Aside from new volcanic rocks, Huaynaputina in 1600 also erupted material that is derived from rocks underlying the volcano, including sediments[53] and older volcanic rocks, both of which were hydrothermally altered. Sulfur reacts with water in the air to form droplets of sulfuric acid, which cool the planet by reducing the amount of sunlight reaching the Earth's surface. [67] Some tephra layers that are 7,000 to 1,000 years old and close to Ubinas volcano have been attributed to activity at Huaynaputina. [246] This social unrest eventually led to a change in the ruling dynasty and interventions from Sweden and Poland. [47], The eruption products of the 1600 eruption are dacites, which define a calc-alkaline,[48] potassium-rich suite;[49] the geochemistry of the 1600 rocks has also been described as adakitic. [178] In the city of Arequipa church authorities organized a series of processions, requiem masses and exorcisms in response to the eruption. Peru's Ubinas volcano began erupting at about dawn last Friday (July 19), spewing ash which has reached areas within a 16-mile (25 kilometers) radius, according to Reuters. [106] The ash deposits from the eruption are visible to this day,[136] and several archeological sites are preserved under them. [244] Climate impacts were also reported from Croatia. [97], It is possible that the entry of new magma – known as "Dacite 1" – into a magmatic system containing a magma entity known as "Dacite 2" triggered the eruption by pressurizing the system until magma started ascending to the surface. New insights from an indigenous chronicle (Cusco, Peru)", "Little Ice Age climate reconstruction from ensemble reanalysis of Alpine glacier fluctuations", "The 1257 Samalas eruption (Lombok, Indonesia): the single greatest stratospheric gas release of the Common Era", "Antarctic volcanic flux ratios from Law Dome ice cores", "On the Role of Climate Forcing by Volcanic Sulphate and Volcanic Ash", "Increased Perchlorate in the Environment Following the 1600 C.E. [40] While an older hypothesis by de Silva and Francis held that the entry of water into the magmatic system may have triggered the eruption,[63] a 2006 viewpoint argues that the entry of new dacitic magma into a pre-existent dacitic magma system triggered the 1600 eruption; furthermore movement of deep andesitic magmas that had generated the new dacite produced movements within the volcano.
