Scientists from the GeoNet volcano observatory did their regular flight over the volcano to measure gas emissions and the active vent temperature last week.
The maximum vent temperature was measured at about 191 °C, which was a decline from 516 °C detected in December last year. Temperatures over 500 °C were being observed in July and August 2021.
The gas measuring flight confirmed a minor decrease of volcanic gases (SO2, CO2) compared to December values. Near-constant degassing is related to magma batch saturated by volatiles within the volcano edifice.
Ash emissions continue at the vent.
Volcanic Alert Level remains at level 2 and the Aviation Colour Code remains at Yellow.
