Every 4-7 days on average, such explosions are also being noted on satellite imagery and trigger VAAC Tokyo to issue ash warnings to aviation.
On 20 Jan, an explosion produced an ash plume that rose approx. 1.5 km to 10,000 ft (3 km) altitude (s. image attached) and drifted ENE, and observed by our correspondent Leonid Kotenko on location.
