A small ash plume rises from the SW summit crater of Ecuador's Sangay volcano in September 1983 and ashfall darkens snow on the upper SW flank.  Almost continuous minor explosive activity has occurred since 1934, occasionally accompanied by the emission of short lava flows. Copyrighted photo by Katia and Maurice Krafft, 1983.
