Volcanoes Today, 23 Jul 2014: Reventador, Ubinas, Aso, San Miguel, Semisopochnoi, Shishaldin, Zhupanovsky
Wednesday Jul 23, 2014 15:00 PM |Zhupanovsky (Kamchatka, Russia): Several small ash emissions occurred at the volcano during 16-21 July. The resulting plumes dissipated quickly. Aviation color code is at orange.
Aso (Kyushu): Activity remains elevated at Asosan volcano. Although no new ash emissions were reported recently, the Nakadake crater shows intense degassing and bright glow from hot fumaroles is visible at night. It seems that the crater lake which usually occupied the bottom of the crater has evaporated.
Shishaldin (United States, Aleutian Islands): According to the Alaska Volcano Observatory, weak activity continues. MODIS data show elevated surface temperatures in the summit crater, but there are no visual or other indicators of eruptive activity available.
Semisopochnoi (United States, Aleutian Islands): Earthquakes have decreased but are still above background levels. No eruptive activity has been recorded. Alert level remains yellow.
San Miguel (El Salvador): The volcano continues to produce important gas emissions as well as occasional small ash explosions. Tremor remains at very high levels (20 times above normal), caused by internal fluid movements. The likelihood of new eruptive activity in the near to medium future remains elevated.
Reventador (Ecuador): Intermittent small explosions continue as well as slow lava extrusion at the summit, evidenced by thermal hot spots visible on satellite data.
Ubinas (Peru): The volcano has been relatively calm over the past days, producing mostly a very weak gas plume with dilute ash, as well as sporadic small explosions.

Kilauea (Hawai'i): Kīlauea continued to erupt at its summit and within the East Rift Zone, and gas emissions in both areas remained elevated. There was no significant change in tilt recorded at the summit, and the lava lake level was relatively steady over the past week leveling at ~30m (98ft). ... [more]
