During our recent expedition to Batu Tara, we witnessed a spectacular increase in activity during the night 3-4 Nov, culminating in a small pyroclastic flow triggered by a collapsing lava fountain and increased effusive activity from the dome. Andi and Till managed to capture the event on photos.

The volcano continues to have frequent mild to very strong strombolian, sometimes small vulcanian-type explosions, but also intermittent, short-lived effusive phases. ...more [read all]

Explosive activity has been pronounced during the past days. Several ash plumes were spotted on satellite data, indicating relatively strong strombolian eruptions.

Strombolian activity continues. An ash plume from a stronger event was detected this morning on satellite imagery (VAAC Darwin).
Mon, 16 Jun 10:37
Activity at the volcano is relatively intense at the moment. Several ash plumes rising to 5-7,000 ft (1.5-2.1 km) altitude, originating from stronger-than-normal strombolian explosions, were seen on satellite imagery during the past days.

A volcanic ash plume at 7,000 ft (2.1 km) altitude was observed this morning extending 20 nautical miles to the NW. (VAAC Darwin)
Tue, 27 May 15:54
A few explosions were again strong enough to produce plumes that were spotted on satellite imagery recently.
Sun, 18 May 07:47
The volcano has entered a phase of more vigorous explosions again. In the past days, it produced a series of ash plumes that were detected on satellite imagery. VAAC Darwin reported volcanic ash drifting at 8,000 ft (2.4 km) altitude for 50 km to the west.

The volcano seems to have entered a stronger phase of eruptions during the past days. A series of ash plumes from explosions were detected on satellite imagery since 26 April. The estimated altitude of the ash plumes is 8-10,000 ft (2.4-3 km) (VAAC Darwin).

After a relatively long time with no spotted ash clouds, an ash plume was seen yesterday again on satellite imagery (VAAC Darwin). ...more
