Volcano news: Soputan
dom, 3 jul 2011, 08:08
A strong eruption is occurring at Soputan volcano on North Sulawesi. Local news report that the volcano erupted a column of ash ("ash and smoke") of 5 km height earlier today (Sunday, 3 July). The Darwin VAAC even reports an ash plume at FL 460 (46,000 ft, ca. 14 km), which would be in fact indicating a major eruption. The ash plume is extending ca. 300 km to the west.
The small Soputan stratovolcano on the southern rim of the Quaternary Tondano caldera on the northern arm of Sulawesi Island is one of Sulawesi's most active volcanoes. The youthful, largely unvegetated volcano rises to 1784 m and is located SW of Sempu volcano. It was constructed at the southern end of a SSW-NNE trending line of vents. During historical time the locus of eruptions has included both the summit crater and Aeseput, a prominent NE-flank vent that formed in 1906 and was the source of intermittent major lava flows until 1924.
