The 7.5-km-long lava flow of approximately 0.1 km3 volume in the first 26 days of activity began on 19 February. On 17 March 1963, a major moderate intensity (-4×107 kg/s) explosive phase occurred with an ~3.5-h-long climax. This phase produced an eruption column estimated to have reached heights of 19 to 26 km above sea level and deposited a scoria lapilli
