For several days in a row, ash plumes have been spotted at 10,000 ft (3 km) altitude. The volcano, in near-continuous strombolian activity since 2006, has apparently stepped up the frequency of larger explosions although perhaps part of this might be explained by better meteorologic conditions allowing to detect ash plumes.

Activity remains elevated. Another explosion today produced an ash plume rising to 10,000 ft (3 km) altitude, VAAC Darwin reported.

An larger explosion again produced an ash plume rising to approx. 10,000 ft (3 km) altitude and drifting 60 nautical miles northwest today.

Explosions that send ash plumes large enough to be detected on satellite are increasingly frequent. Another eruption today was spotted on Meteosat with an estimated ash plume height of 8,000 ft (2.4 km).

An ash plume was observed again today, rising 8000 ft (2.4 km), caused by what is likely a larger-than-normal explosion at the volcano.
