Volcanoes Today, 3 Aug 2015: Piton de la Fournaise volcano, Raung
Monday Aug 03, 2015 17:00 PM |Raung (East Java): The eruption continues. Ash emissions have decreased, while satellite-detected heat emission increased during the past days. This could suggest that activity is now more effusive (lava flows) than explosive (ash emissions) in style.
This morning, an ash plume rose approx. 1 km above the volcano and drifted 100 km to the SW. Indonesia's Volcanological Survey VSI mentioned yesterday that seismic activity rapidly decreased. Whether this means a near ending of the eruption remains to be seen.
Piton de la Fournaise (La Réunion): After less than 3 days, the eruption already ended Sunday morning. The volcano observatory reported that tremor and lava effusion ceased abruptly at 11:15. However, a new eruptive phase in the near future cannot be ruled out.
The access to the Enclos remains closed.

Piton de la Fournaise (La Réunion): A new eruption might be under way at the volcano. Since last weekend, seismic activity from a source at 1-2 km depth beneath Dolomieu crater has been increasing. In addition, increased degassing and inflation of the Dolomieu crater have been detected, both likely signs of a new magma intrusion at shallow depth. ... [mera]

Sinabung (Sumatra, Indonesia): (27 Jul) Activity has remained essentially unchanged. Effusion of viscous lava continues at slow pace to feed the lava dome with two active lobes on the SE and E upper flanks. At 12:22 local time today, a small part of the eastern lobe collapsed into a medium-sized pyroclastic flow that traveled approx. 2.5 km towards the outskirts of the (already evacuated and destroyed) villages of Bekerah and Simacem. ...
