A convecting ash-bearing eruption cloud from Telica volcano punches through a low cloud layer in February 1982. Continuous white vapor columns with occasional ash were observed beginning in late November 1982, and small gas-and-ash eruptions took place in late December and early January. Large eruptions on February 12 and 19 sent clouds to 3.7-4.3 and 3.5 km above sea level, respectively. Eruptive activity ended on March 2.
