Volcanic activity worldwide 16 Jan 2015: Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha'apai volcano

Freitag Jan 16, 2015 21:00 |

Eruption between Hunga Tonga and Hunga Ha’apai island on 15 Jan (New Zealand High Commission)
Eruption between Hunga Tonga and Hunga Ha’apai island on 15 Jan (New Zealand High Commission)
Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha'apai (Tonga, Tonga Islands): A new island is now growing at the eruption site between Hunga Ha’apai and Hunga Tonga Islands. As of yesterday, it had an east-west elongated 1.5-2 km long and approx. 1 km wide shape with a half-open cone around the crater reaching almost 100 m in height already.
The new island seems already to have touched the northeastern tip of Hunga Ha’apai island. Violent sea-water and lava interaction has been generating jets of dark ash and dense steam plumes reaching several kilometers of height, as well as ground-hugging base surges.
