Volcanoes Today, 12 Mar 2014: Chirpoi, Karymsky, Dukono, Copahue

This came likely from a stronger-than-average of the volcano's typical sporadic strombolian explosions.
Chirpoi (Kurile Islands, Russia): A thermal hot spot is again visible on MODIS satellite data, suggesting some sort of activity going on at the remote volcano. What exactly is happening there (perhaps the appearance of a small lava dome, or emissions of hot gasses) is unknown at the moment.
Dukono (Halmahera): Explosive activity at the volcano produced an ash plume that rose to 7,000 ft (2.1 km) altitude and extended 40 nautical miles to the SE yesterday.
Copahue (Chile/Argentina): The volcano continues to show signs of unrest. A swarm of volcanic-tectonic earthquakes occurred the day before yesterday. SERNAGEOMIN keeps the alert level of the volcano at Yellow.
