Heat signal from Alaid volcano (MIROVA)
The eruption at the volcano continues as a strong thermal heat source remains active at the summit crater; no details about the nature of the activity (perhaps a small lava lake) are currently known. ...more [read all]

Gas plume and thermal hot spot from Alaid volcano yesterday (NASA satellite image)
Eruptive activity of some sort continues at the volcano. This is evidenced by a strong thermal signal detected and a gas plume extending south of the small island, both detected on satellite imagery. ...more
