[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. [29], Recently emplaced, postglacial dacite bodies occur in the Huaynaputina area,[2] some of which probably formed shortly before the 1600 eruption. [2] Ash falls, pumice falls and pyroclastic flows incinerated everything within their path[153] and buried the surroundings beneath more than 2 metres (6 ft 7 in) of rocks,[23] wiping out vegetation over a large area. average one every 2000 to 4000 years over the past 50,000 years in Peru. [93] The event ended on 6 March with ash fall;[2] the air was clear of ash from the eruption on 2 April 1600. [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. [177], Historians' writings about conditions in Arequipa tell of religious processions seeking to soothe the divine anger,[161] people praying all day and those who had lost faith in the church resorting to magic spells as the eruption was underway,[112] while in Moquegua children were reportedly running around and women screaming. 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. During the Holocene, Huaynaputina has erupted several times, including on 19 February 1600 – the largest ever recorded in South America. [215] Notably, the climate impacts became manifest only in 1601; perhaps in 1600 they were suppressed by a strong El Niño event.[216]. [27], One of these funnel-shaped vents[28] is a 70-metre (230 ft) trough that cuts into the amphitheatre, which appears to be a remnant of a fissure vent. [267] Reports of snowfall and unusual cold also came from the Yangtze River valley,[271] and summer in the Anhui, Shanghai and Zhejiang provinces began unusually with cold and snowy weather and then became hot. Occasionally the flows that reached the Pacific Ocean have been described as pyroclastic flows. [275], In 1601 Japan, Lake Suwa froze up considerably earlier than normal,[219] and flooding and continuous rains were accompanied by harvest failures. [188] On the other hand, mythology held that the lack of sacrifices had upset the devil who had sent a large snake[b] named chipiroque or pichiniqui to announce "horrifying storms"[189][77] – which eventually ended up killing the natives anyway. [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. In Andean mythology, earth motions are often associated with snakes. Huaynaputina volcano (its name meaning "new volcano") is a small volcano located in southern Peru 26 km south of Ubinas volcano.

[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. Vegetation has grown at their vents. [82] Investigations in 2010 gave temperatures of 51.8–78.7 °C (125.2–173.7 °F) for the gases,[83] with seasonal variations. [106] The ash deposits from the eruption are visible to this day,[136] and several archeological sites are preserved under them. [168] Before the eruption the Moquegua region had been a source of good wine, and afterwards the focus of viticulture shifted to Pisco, Ica and Nazca;[171] later sugarcane became an important crop in Moquegua valley. [165] Together with earthquakes unrelated to the eruption and El Niño-related flooding, the Huaynaputina eruption led to the abandonment of some irrigated land in Carrizal, Peru. Peru has declared a state of emergency in the area around the volcano, with further moderate explosions expected. [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. News Ubinas volcano in Peru erupts, spreading ash through the south. [240] At that time, flooding also took place in Silver Lake in the Mojave Desert,[241] and Mono Lake rose to the highest level of the last thousand years. 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. Normally very large volcanic eruptions are accompanied by the formation of a caldera, but exceptions do exist. [6] The city Moquegua is 65 km (40 mi) south-southwest of the volcano and Arequipa is 80 km (50 mi) to its north-northwest. [39], The basement underneath Huaynaputina is formed by almost 2-kilometre-thick (1.2 mi) sediments and volcanic intrusions of Paleozoic to Mesozoic age[32] including the Yura Group[40] as well as the Cretaceous Matalaque Formation of volcanic origin. It has no prominent topographic expression and lies within a 2.5-km-wide (1.5 miles) depression formed by edifice collapse and further excavated by glaciers within an older edifice of Tertiary-to-Pleistocene age. [99] The first Plinian event lasted for about 20 hours[102] and formed 18–23-metre-thick (59–75 ft) pumice deposits close to the vent. [252] Finland saw one of the worst barley and rye harvests, and crop yields continued to be poor for some years to follow, accompanied by a colder climate there. Frost rings are anomalous tree rings that form when, Note: volcanoes are ordered by latitude from north to south, Atlantic meridional overturning circulation, Masías Alvarez, Ramos Palomino & Antayhua Vera 2013, Masías Alvarez, Ramos Palomino & Antayhua Vera 2011, Yupa Paredes, Pajuelo Aparicio & Cruz Pauccara 2019, "Retos y logros del Observatorio Vulcanológico del INGEMMET", "Tefroestratigrafía post-glacial del volcán Ubinas, Perú", "Myth and catastrophic reality: using myth to identify cosmic impacts and massive Plinian eruptions in Holocene South America", "Volcanism and associated hazards: the Andean perspective", "Estratigrafía y evolución del Complejo Volcánico Cerro Blanco, Puna Austral, Argentina", "La gran erupción de hace 4.2 ka cal en Cerro Blanco, Zona Volcánica Central, Andes: nuevos datos sobre los depósitos eruptivos holocenos en la Puna sur y regiones adyacentes", "Physical impacts of the CE 1600 Huaynaputina eruption on the local habitat: Geophysical insights", "An example of enhanced tephra deposition driven by topographically induced atmospheric turbulence", "Effects of historical and modern mining on mercury deposition in southeastern Peru", "Nonlinear rise in Greenland runoff in response to post-industrial Arctic warming", "Alistan expedición para redescubir pueblos extintos por volcán Huaynaputina", "La vid y el vino en la costa central del Perú, siglos XVI y XVII", "Historia de la producción de vinos y piscos en el Perú", "Recursos naturales prehispánicos: el guano de isla en Moquegua", "La guerra del pacífico y los ayllus: Una lectura de la pintura mural del baptisterio de Sabaya", "Una arequipeña camino a los altares. Huaynaputina (/waɪnəpʊˈtiːnə/ WY-nə-puu-TEE-nə; Spanish: [wajnapuˈtina]) is a stratovolcano in a volcanic upland in southern Peru. [234] Noticeable cooling has been inferred for the Western US from tree ring data. The subduction is oblique, leading to strike-slip faulting. The 1815 Tambora eruption in Indonesia had a well-documented impact on global agriculture, so such eruptions may occur as often as every 200 years, Verosub noted. Volcanic lightning was observed in the eruption plume. Still, there are about 30,000 people living in the surrounding area, with another 800,000 in Arequipa. Huaynaputina is a relatively inconspicuous volcano that was the source of one of the largest historical eruptions of the central Andes in 1600. If Huaynaputina underwent a similar eruption to its 1600 event, it would likely lead to a significantly higher death toll and cause substantial socioeconomic disruption. [8] A cattle-grazing footpath leads from Quinistaquillas to the volcano,[12] and it is possible to approach the volcano over surrounding ash plains. Questions? [246], The summer 1601 was wet,[244] and the winter 1601–1602 was severe. Volcano pictures, videos, fun facts, anything! 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. [39] Volcanic activity in that zone has moved since the Jurassic from the present-day coast region where remnants persist in the Cordillera de la Costa eastward into the actual Andes[12] and the present-day volcanic arc, where it is defined by stratovolcanoes. Southern Peru, Western Bolivia and Northern Chile). [224] In general, volcanic sulfate aerosol production was higher during the Little Ice Age than before or after it. [249] In Norway, cooling coinciding with the eruption was probably the reason for the development of palsas in Færdesmyra that for the most part disappeared only in the 20th century. . On February 19, 1600, South America’s biggest volcanic eruption in all of recorded human history occurred in a mountain close to Arequipa, a city in southern Peru. [201] Petrological data usually yield a higher sulfur output than ice core data; this may reflect either ice cores underestimating the amount of sulfur erupted as ice cores only record stratospheric sulfur, ice cores underestimating the amount of sulfur for other reasons or overestimating the amount of sulfur contained within magma-associated fluids. 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. [103] This stage of the eruption produced at least 26 cubic kilometres (6.2 cu mi) of rocks,[104] thus it makes up the bulk of the output from the 1600 eruption. [16] The blasts of the eruption could be heard in the coastal localities of Lima, Chiquiabo and Arica. Volcano Huaynaputina (Wayna Putina) Huanaputina lies in Southern Peru, 80 kilometres of Arequipa. [202], The eruption had a noticeable impact on growth conditions in the Northern Hemisphere, which were the worst of the last 600 years,[2] with summers being on average 0.8 °C (1.4 °F) colder than the mean. The name Huaynaputina was given to the volcano after its 1600 eruption;[2] it is also spelled Huayna Putina or Guagua Putina. The summers following the 1600 eruption were some of the coldest in 500 years. [252] Scotland saw the failure of barley and oat crops in 1602 and a plague outbreak during the preceding year,[253] and in Italy silk prices rose due to a decline in silk production in the peninsula. [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. [98], A first Plinian stage took place on 19 and 20 February,[101] accompanied by an increase of earthquake activity. 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. 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. [191] Such prophecies may reflect prior knowledge about the volcanic nature of Huaynaputina. [284], In 2010,[285] earthquake activity and noises from Huaynaputina alerted the local population and led to a volcanological investigation. Cacti can be found on rocky outcrops and valley bottoms.[294]. [32] It is likely that the development of the later Huaynaputina volcano within the composite volcano is coincidental,[32] although a similar tectonic stress field controlled the younger vents. [161] Ash fall was also reported in an area of 300,000 km2 (120,000 sq mi) across Peru, Chile and Bolivia mostly west and south from the volcano, including in La Paz,[14] Cuzco, Camana where it was thick enough to cause palm trees to collapse, Potosi, Arica as well as in Lima where it was accompanied by sounds of explosions. [3] According to one translation, Huayna means 'new' and Putina means 'fire throwing mountain'; the full name is meant to suggest the aggressiveness of its volcanic activity[4] and refers to the 1600 eruption being its first one. Huaynaputina Volcanic Eruption", "Delayed winter warming: A robust decadal response to strong tropical volcanic eruptions? This weakened the Ottoman Empire just as it was conducting the Long Turkish War and appears to have contributed to the onset of the Celali rebellions in Anatolia. [226], The 1600 eruption of Huaynaputina occurred at the tail end of a cluster of mid-sized volcanic eruptions, which in a climate simulation had a noticeable impact on Earth's energy balance and were accompanied by a 10% growth of Northern Hemisphere sea ice[227] and a weakening of the subpolar gyre. [117], Damage to infrastructure and economic resources of southern Peru was severe. [111] The deposits permanently altered the course of the river. It is the largest volcanic eruption recorded in the South American history! [258] 1601 was called a "green year" in Sweden and a "straw year" or "year of extensive frosts" in Finland. As a result, natives and Franciscan friars reached the summit of that volcano and threw relics of saints into its crater. [133], Ash fall from Huaynaputina reached a thickness of 1 centimetre (0.39 in) within a 95,000-square-kilometre (37,000 sq mi) area of southern Peru, Bolivia and Chile;[126] the tephra was emplaced in a major westerly lobe and a minor northerly lobe,[30] which is an unusual distribution as tephra from volcanoes in the Central Andes is usually carried eastward by winds. [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. University of California - Davis. The eruption began with tremendous explosions, the sky grew dark and white ash fell over the countryside. [78] In 2017, the Peruvian Geophysical Institute announced that Huaynaputina would be monitored by the future Southern Volcanological Observatory,[283] and in 2019 seismic monitoring of the volcano began. (2008, April 25). Still, there are about 30,000 people living in the surrounding area, with another 1 million in the Arequipa metropolitan area. The Huaynaputina eruption in 1600 and its cultural dimensions 1. [152], The eruption had a devastating impact on the region. [206] The Huaynaputina eruption[126] decreased the amount on solar energy reaching Earth by about 1.94 W/m2. [251] In Estonia, high mortality and crop failures from 1601–1603 led to an at least temporary abandonment of three quarters of all farms. Based on historical records, Huaynaputina's eruption commenced on 16 February 1600 (following earthquakes that began on the 15th), with the earliest signs of the impending eruption perhaps in December 1599. Huaynaputina volcano (its name meaning "new volcano") is a small volcano located in southern Peru 26 km south of Ubinas volcano. [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. [244] Climate impacts were also reported from Croatia. [264], Chronicles during the reign of Emperor Wanli[265] from northern China mention severe frosts in 1601 and frequently cold weather, including snowfall in Huai'an County[193] and Hebei and severe frost in Gansu,[266] Shanxi and Hebei during summer. [29] A number of faults with recognizable scarps occur within the amphitheatre and have offset the younger vents;[34] some of these faults existed before the 1600 eruption while others were activated during the event. Its impact on the region was severe. [91], Based on historical records, Huaynaputina's eruption commenced on 16 February 1600[2] (following earthquakes that began on the 15th),[79] with the earliest signs of the impending eruption perhaps in December 1599. [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. [263], Before the Huaynaputina eruption in 1591–1596, severe droughts in Anatolia caused harvest failures. The noise of the eruption was perceived as resembling artillery fire. [79][80], In 1962, there were reportedly no fumaroles within the amphitheatre,[81] though fumaroles occur in the amphitheatre close to the three vents. [67], Tephra and block-and-ash flows deposits from Holocene eruptions can be found within the amphitheatre. Huaynaputina has not erupted since 1600. [219] Frost continued into summer in Italy and England. Recorded as the largest volcanic explosion in South America, it saw a … [261] Cooling was also noted in tree rings of the Kola Peninsula. Huaynaputina is a strato-volcano situated in the Andes range in the south of Peru and is part of the infamous Pacific Ring of Fire. "We knew it was a big eruption, we knew it was a cold year, and that's all we knew," Verosub said. [42] The emplacement of the Capillune Formation continued into the earliest Pliocene; subsequently the Plio-Pleistocene Barroso Group was deposited, which includes the composite volcano that hosts Huaynaputina[32] but also ignimbrites that appear to come from calderas. It exploded on February 19th, 1600, and is recorded as the largest volcanic explosion ever in South America. The initial results are presented in an article in Eos, the transactions of the American Geophysical Union. [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. [235] In addition, weather in the Arctic Archipelago of Canada was unusually wet. Sor Ana de los Angeles (1602–1686)", "Evidence of a large "prehistorical" earthquake during Inca times? [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. Here are 7 such highly dangerous and majorly devastating volcanic eruptions that took place during the course of history: #1 Huaynaputina (1600) This stratovolcano; situated in southern Peru; when it erupted back in 1600, sent hot mudflows into the Pacific Ocean! [51] Phenocrysts include biotite, chalcopyrite, hornblende, ilmenite, magnetite and plagioclase;[51] amphibole, apatite and pyroxene have been reported as well. [23] When the dams failed, the lakes released hot water with floating pumice and debris down the Río Tambo. [193] A darkened lunar eclipse described by observers in Graz, Austria, in 1601 may have been the consequence of the Huaynaputina aerosols.[192]. The volcano has no prominent topographic expression. Its name translates as ‘new volcano’ and this huge, irregular crater, 2.5 km (1.5 mi) in diameter, has been formed over time from stratified layers of lava and other deposits. [94], At first, the eruption of 1600 was attributed to Ubinas volcano[95] and sometimes also to El Misti. [125] Indios from the Quinistacas valley moved to Moquegua because the Quinistacas valley was covered with ash;[174] population movements resulting from the Huaynaputina eruption may have occurred as far away as in Bolivia. The eruption had significant effects on Earth's climate; temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere decreased, and millions of tons of acid were deposited. [98] A first pyroclastic flow was emplaced already during this time[108] when the column became unstable. Financial support for ScienceDaily comes from advertisements and referral programs, where indicated. [269] Epidemics in Shanxi and Shaanxi have also been linked to Huaynaputina. In view of this, the viceroy of Peru sent reinforcement troops to El Callao. [172] Cattle ranching also was severely impacted by the 1600 eruption. [40], The eruption was accompanied by intense earthquakes, deafening explosions[114] and noises that could be heard in Lima and as far as one thousand kilometres away. ScienceDaily, 25 April 2008. [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. [32] There is a fumarole on the third vent, and fumaroles occur in association with dykes that crop out in the amphitheatre. [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.
