Satellite data showed discolored water around the volcano beginning in January 2020. The discolored plumes became more frequent, dense, and stretched for longer distances.
On 25 April a satellite image showed a plume in the water extending about 15 km long and spread over an approximate area of 30 square kilometers.
A small brown circle about 50,000 square meters in area indicated the presence of material over the likely vent location. An image acquired on 30 April showed a thin ribbon of discolored water extending about 50 km W of Kavachi.
