[19] The amphitheatre lies at the margin[13] of a rectangular[20] high plateau[13] that is covered by ash about 2 metres (6.6 ft) thick,[21] extending over an area of 50 square kilometres (19 sq mi). [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. [74], However, the last eruption may have preceded 1600 by several centuries, seeing as native people reportedly offered sacrifices to the mountain[75] such as birds, personal clothing and sheep,[76] although it is known that non-volcanic mountains were also offered sacrifices in southern Peru. [18] It underwent sector collapses and glacial erosion, which altered its appearance and left traces on its flanks. ScienceDaily, 25 April 2008. Views expressed here do not necessarily reflect those of ScienceDaily, its staff, its contributors, or its partners. [236], The Huaynaputina eruption was followed by a drought in what today are the Eastern US and may have hindered the establishment of the colony in Jamestown, Virginia, where mortality from malnutrition was high. [280], About 30,000 people live in the immediate area of Huaynaputina today, although over 69,000 and 1,008,000 live in the nearby cities of Moquegua and Arequipa, respectively. Financial support for ScienceDaily comes from advertisements and referral programs, where indicated. [98], A first Plinian stage took place on 19 and 20 February,[101] accompanied by an increase of earthquake activity. "Volcanic Eruption Of 1600 Caused Global Disruption." [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. [29], Recently emplaced, postglacial dacite bodies occur in the Huaynaputina area,[2] some of which probably formed shortly before the 1600 eruption. [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. [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. [222] Arctic sea ice expansion and climatic cooling has been noted after these eruptions,[223] and a cooling peak occurred around the time of the Huaynaputina eruption. Some reports of late ash falls may be due to wind-transported ash, and there are no deposits fro… [119], The 1600 eruption had a volcanic explosivity index of 6[120] and is considered to be the only major explosive eruption of the Andes in historical time. Global atmospheric impacts of the 1600 eruption, San Genaro had been called due to his responses to eruptions of. [261] Cooling was also noted in tree rings of the Kola Peninsula. [144] Ash layers about 8–12-centimetre-thick (3.1–4.7 in) were noted in the ice caps of Quelccaya in Peru and Sajama in Bolivia,[122] although the deposits in Sajama may instead have originated from Ticsani volcano,[75] and reports of Huaynaputina-related ashfall in Nicaragua are implausible. [20] Northeast-east of Huaynaputina,[27] the terrain drops off steeply (2.3 km or 1.4 mi vertically and 6 km or 3.7 mi horizontally[22]) into the Río Tambo valley, which runs southward and then westward as it rounds Huaynaputina. The noise of the eruption was perceived as resembling artillery fire.

[17], A large amount of sulfur appears to have been carried in a volatile phase associated with the magma rather than in the magma proper. The eruption in 1600 AD was the largest volcanic eruption in South America spanning the past 2000 years [ 32 – 36 ]. Huaynaputina volcano (its name meaning "new volcano") is a small volcano located in southern Peru 26 km south of Ubinas volcano. [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. [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. [105] This stage generated a sustained[106] eruption column about 34–46 km (21–29 mi) high,[61] which likely also created a mushroom cloud. [99], After a hiatus the volcano began erupting pyroclastic flows, which were mostly constrained by the topography and were erupted in various stages interrupted by ash fall that extended to larger distances. [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. [220] Together with the 1257 Samalas eruption and the 1453 Kuwae eruption, the Huaynaputina eruption may have led to the Little Ice Age,[221] or to the coldest period of the Little Ice Age in Europe. Other volcanoes in this zone from northwest to southeast include Sara Sara, Coropuna, Ampato, Sabancaya, El Misti, Ubinas, Ticsani, Tutupaca and Yucamane. [224] In general, volcanic sulfate aerosol production was higher during the Little Ice Age than before or after it. Normally very large volcanic eruptions are accompanied by the formation of a caldera, but exceptions do exist. [192] Sunspots and vivid sunsets and sunrises were noted. [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. [198] In Antarctica the sulfur yield was estimated to be about one-third that of the 1815 Tambora eruption, although the climate impact in the northern Hemisphere might have been aggravated by the distribution of the aerosols;[200] at one Antarctic site the Huaynaputina sulfate layer is thicker than the one from Tambora. Content on this website is for information only. [235] In addition, weather in the Arctic Archipelago of Canada was unusually wet. 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. [116] One of the lost sites, Estagagache, has been deemed the "Pompeii of Peru". [170] Reportedly, fish were killed by the flood in the Pacific Ocean at the mouth of the river. University of California - Davis. On February 19, 1600, in the upland region of southern Peru, a volcano named Huaynaputina exploded. During this stage the volcano also emitted lava bombs; the total volume of erupted tephra is about 1.5 km3 (0.36 cu mi). Department of Geology, University of California, Davis. [125] The total amount of sulfuric acid erupted by Huaynaputina has been estimated at various values: Other estimates are 50–100 million tons for the sulfur dioxide yield[197] and 23[198] or 26–55 million tons[199] for the sulfur. LARGE-SCALEEXPLOSIVE ERUPTION AT HUAYNAPUTINA VOLCANO, 1600 AD, SOUTHERN PERU Jean-ClaudeTHOURET (1) and Jasmine DAVILA (2) (1) IRD Institut de Recherche pour le Développement (UR 6) cio UMR6524-CNRS'Magmaset Volcans'.Université Blaise Pascal, Clermont-Ferrand.France. Some tributary valleys join the Río Tambo from Huaynaputina; clockwise from the east these are the Quebradas Huaynaputina, Quebrada Tortoral, Quebrada Aguas Blancas and Quebrada del Volcán. [8] Volcanic activity does not occur along the entire length of the Andes; where subduction is shallow, there are gaps with little volcanic activity. [28] A repeat of the 1600 eruption would likely cause a considerably greater death toll owing to population growth since 1600, in addition to causing substantial socioeconomic disruption in the Andes. [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. [2] The lava dome Cerro El Volcán [36] and another small lava dome, Cerro Las Chilcas,[37] lie 3 km (1.9 mi) south from Huaynaputina. [64], After the Miocene, the Pastillo volcanic complex developed in the form of half-a-kilometre-thick (0.3 mi) andesitic rocks; the ancestral composite volcano that holds Huaynaputina is part of the Pastillo volcanic complex[65] and appears to be of Miocene to Pleistocene age. The eruption would have decreased the atmospheric water content and thus strength of the monsoonal moisture transport towards the plateau. In the Central Andes, large Plinian eruptions (Volcanic Explosivity Index ≥ 5) occur at a relatively high frequency, i.e. [14] The town of Omate lies 16 kilometres (10 mi) southwest of Huaynaputina. [101] The pumice was then buried by the ash erupted during this stage, which has been recorded as far as Antarctica. 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. The volcano has no prominent topographic expression. Occasionally the flows that reached the Pacific Ocean have been described as pyroclastic flows. [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. [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. [263], Before the Huaynaputina eruption in 1591–1596, severe droughts in Anatolia caused harvest failures. But the droplets soon fall back to Earth, so the cooling effects last only a year or so. Precipitation averages 154.8 millimetres per year (6.09 in/year), falling mainly during a summer wet season between December and March. Huaynaputina is located in Southern Peru in South America. [154] Of the volcanic phenomena, the ash and pumice falls were the most destructive. [258] 1601 was called a "green year" in Sweden and a "straw year" or "year of extensive frosts" in Finland. [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. [234] Noticeable cooling has been inferred for the Western US from tree ring data. [6] Other names for the volcano include Chequepuquina, Chiquimote, Guayta, Omate and Quinistaquillas. [74] Reportedly, tsunamis occurred during the eruption as well. [132] Reportedly, the 1601 wine harvest was delayed in France, and in Germany it was drastically lower in 1602. "Volcanic Eruption Of 1600 Caused Global Disruption." University of California - Davis. [84] The fumarolic gas composition is dominated by water vapour, with smaller quantities of carbon dioxide and sulfur gases. [1] The volcano El Misti was sometimes confused with and thus referred to mistakenly as Huaynaputina. [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. [134] The deposition of the tephra was influenced by topography[135] and wind changes during the eruption, which led to changes in the fallout pattern. [106], This stage was channelled by a fracture[40] and had the characteristics of a fissure-fed eruption. [284], In 2010,[285] earthquake activity and noises from Huaynaputina alerted the local population and led to a volcanological investigation. [238], A major flooding episode in 1605 ± 5 recorded from sediments of the Santa Barbara Basin has been attributed to the Huaynaputina eruption. There were also wet spells between 1599 and 1606 in the Sacramento River system, according to analysis of tree rings. [219] In 1601–1603 the eruption led to a famine[262] after crops failed in 1601 and 1602; this is considered to be the worst famine of Russian history and claimed about two million lives, a third of the country's population. 1601 and 1603 tree rings close to the tree line in Quebec indicate cold temperatures,[192] and anomalous tree rings and cooling in Idaho have been linked to the eruption as well. 5.8k members in the Volcanoes community. . Get the latest science news with ScienceDaily's free email newsletters, updated daily and weekly. Volcano pictures, videos, fun facts, anything! The 1600 eruption of Huaynaputina in Peru had a global impact on human society, according to geologists. [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. [3], The volcano is part of the Central Volcanic Zone of the Andes. [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. 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. [136], Between 11 and 17 villages within 20 kilometres (12 mi) from the volcano were buried by the ash,[132] among which were Calicanto and Chimpapampa south of Huaynaputina;[13] the "Huayruro Project" that began in 2015 aims at rediscovering these towns. [15] The region is generally remote and the terrain extreme, and the area around Huaynaputina is not easily accessible. [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. [5] Two other translations are 'young boiling one' – perhaps a reference to earlier eruptions – or 'where young were boiled', which may refer to human sacrifices. [286] As part of this investigation, seismic activity[287] was recorded around the amphitheatre;[288] analysis showed that seismic activity was concentrated around the amphitheatre with no recorded earthquakes within it[289] and appeared to be associated mainly with the faults and lineaments in the region. [96] Priests observed and recorded the eruption from Arequipa,[16] and the friar Antonio Vázquez de Espinosa wrote a second-hand account of the eruption based on a witness's report from Arequipa. [185] Shamans in the Tambo valley urged a return to old customs,[163] and processions and sacrifices to Huaynaputina took place. [20], The Huaynaputina ash layer has been used as a tephrochronological marker for the region,[2] for example in archeology[145] and in volcanology, where it was used to date an eruption in the Andagua volcanic field for example. [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. [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. [79] Some reports of late ash falls may be due to wind-transported ash,[79] and there are no deposits from a supposed eruption in August 1600; such reports may refer to mudflows or explosions in pyroclastic flows. [29] These vents lie at an elevation of about 4,200 m (13,800 ft), making them among the highest vents of a Plinian eruption in the world. [51] Phenocrysts include biotite, chalcopyrite, hornblende, ilmenite, magnetite and plagioclase;[51] amphibole, apatite and pyroxene have been reported as well. Recorded as the largest volcanic explosion in South America, it saw a … [7] This horseshoe-shaped[17] structure opens eastwards[18] and is set in the older volcano[2] at an elevation of 4,400 m (14,400 ft). [176] Despite the damage, recovery was fast in Arequipa. Introduction: Catastrophe and calamity in the early modern Andes The outbreak of the Huaynaputina in 1600 caused the death of about 1,500 people, devastated a large region in the south of Peru, killing … [267] The cold snap was apparently limited to 1601, as there are no reports of extremely cold weather in the subsequent years. This view is from the east into a 2.5-km-wide complex caldera that is breached widely to the east. The elevation is 15908 ft about sea level. Volcano Huaynaputina (Wayna Putina) Huanaputina lies in Southern Peru, 80 kilometres of Arequipa. In China, peach trees bloomed late, and Lake Suwa in Japan had one of its earliest freezing dates in 500 years. Huaynaputina is a large volcanic crater, lacking an identifiable mountain profile, with an outer stratovolcano and three younger volcanic vents. [123] It was larger than the 1883 eruption of Krakatau in Indonesia and the 1991 eruption of Pinatubo in the Philippines. [45] The faults associated with the volcanic complex have influenced the evolution of the constituent volcanoes including Huaynaputina[44] by acting as conduits for ascending magma especially at fault intersections. [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. [32] Cretaceous sediments and Paleogene–Neogene volcanic rocks form the high plateau around Huaynaputina. Sor Ana de los Angeles (1602–1686)", "Evidence of a large "prehistorical" earthquake during Inca times? [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. [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. [172] Cattle ranching also was severely impacted by the 1600 eruption. [29] These fumaroles produce white emanations and smell of rotten eggs. [254], In Fennoscandia, the summer of 1601 was one of the coldest in the last four centuries. "In one sense, we can't prove that the volcano was responsible for all this," Verosub said. 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. [155] Ash fall, debris flows and pyroclastic flows devastated[79] an area of about 40 by 70 kilometres (25 mi × 43 mi) around Huaynaputina,[17] and both crops and livestock sustained severe damage. [242] Colder temperatures may have contributed to the flooding in Silver Lake, as they would have reduced evaporation. [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. [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. [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. Although other reconstructions have been interpreted as signalling a warm period at that time. [77], After the eruption, anomalies in the appearance of the sun were described in Europe and China as a "dimming" or "reddening" "haze" that reduced the sun's luminosity in a cloudless sky and reduced the visibility of shadows. [106] The ash deposits from the eruption are visible to this day,[136] and several archeological sites are preserved under them. [166], The eruption claimed 1,000[92]–1,500 fatalities,[22] not counting any fatalities from earthquakes or flooding on the Río Tambo. [122], The local population fled during the eruption[162][163] and wild animals sought refuge in the city of Arequipa.
