Batu Tara volcano (Indonesia): new ash plume reported

Thursday Mar 27, 2014 18:04 PM | BY: T

After a relatively long time with no spotted ash clouds, an ash plume was seen yesterday again on satellite imagery (VAAC Darwin).
The remote volcano in the Fores Sea has been site of continuing strombolian activity since at least 2006. Some of the eruptions are strong enough to leave ash plumes that can be seen on satellite images.
