Ol Doinyo Lengai volcano (Tanzania) activity update: continuing ash eruptions

Typical ash eruption from the new ash cone in the N crater
Typical ash eruption from the new ash cone in the N crater
A small group from VolcanoDiscovery, local mountain guides and partners stayed near and on Lengai volcano during 17-21 January. During this period, Lengai continued to erupt ash to several 100 meters above the new ash cone during phases lasting several hours alternating with periods of quiet when only a weak plume of very fine gray ash and gas was issuing out of the new ash cone.
A detailed report of our observations can be found here.

Based on information from the Tanzania MVO, the Toulouse VAAC reported that Ol Doinyo Lengai erupted on 7 November and remained active. According to Frederick Belton's website, an observer saw a "smoke" plume rise to an altitude of 3.2-3.5 km (10,500-11,500 ft) a.s.l. and drift WSW towards the Gol Mountains on 10 November. [mehr]

As more evidence about the large eruption at Lengai volcano on 4-5 Sep is pieced together, it appears that the eruption was probably a mainly explosive event while evidence of significant lava flows on the flanks becomes less. The observed "lava flows" could have been bush fires ignited by hot ejecta. In any case, there is little doubt that the observed ash cloud was the result of a significant explosive eruption and not just landslides on the steep flank.

It seems that the eruption at Lengai is indeed a major event and that explosive activity has taken or is taking place in addition to lava flows and probably, bush fires. According to local sources from the nearby Moivaro - Lake Natron Camp, Lengai first erupted at midnight and at 6 am on 4 September. A pilot reported ash rising to 20,000 ft (ca. 6 km). Ashfall was reported from Engaresero Village, but there are no reports on injuries or fatalities. The highly regarded Moivaro Tented Lodge near Lake Natron has been temporarily evacuated.
