Manam volcano news and eruption updates (New Guinea):
Manam volcano (Papua New Guinea): activity summary 1-15 Oct - strong strombolian activity
Thursday Oct 18, 2012 10:05 AM | AUTEUR : T
RVO reported that Manam's Southern Crater continued to erupt during 1-15 October. Activity was low the first few days, characterized by emissions of light gray ash plumes, occasional dark gray plumes, and ejected incandescent tephra.
The intensity of ejected incandescent tephra increased on 5 October, and peaked during 9-10 October when the ejections developed into Strombolian activity. Strong explosions during the Strombolian activity produced shock waves that rattled houses on the S part of the island. Activity subsided after 10 October; erupted material fell in the SE and SE valleys. There was a corresponding increase in emissions of ash clouds that drifted NW but the volume of ash appeared insignificant. White vapor plumes rose from Main Crater during the reporting period.
Based on analyses of satellite imagery, the Darwin VAAC reported that on 15 October an ash plume rose to an altitude of 3 km (10,000 ft) a.s.l. and drifted 37 km SW.

An ash plume rising to 10,000 ft / 3 km altitude was observed this morning.
Tuesday, Oct 09, 2012
An SO2 plume is visible today from Manam volcano suggesting activity continues although no new ash plumes have been detected.
Monday, Oct 08, 2012
Intermittent explosions were reported from Manam volcano and an ash plume was detected last night at 8,000 ft (2.4 km) altitude. In the past weeks, SO2 plumes from the volcano had sometimes been visible as well.

A SO2 plume from Manam can be seen on today's NOAA satellite image.

Top 20 quakes in 2016
: Several magnitude 7 quakes occurred in 2016 (but none above M8): Papua New Guinea, NZ, Ecuador, Solomon Islands, Sumatra, Chile, Alaska and others - nearly all major earthquakes were located near active subduction zones.
See the top 20 list of largest quakes in 2016 with this map.
Merapi volcano photos
: One of the most active and most dangerous volcanoes of Indonesia: Merapi meaning "the one who makes fire", is a feared but also venerated holy mountain looming over the city of Yogyakarta, capital of Central Java.
Photos from Kamchatka
: Kamchatka in Russia's far east is one of world's remotest regions and has an almost unparalleled density of active volcanoes. Look at photos taken during our expeditions from this wonderful corner of the world!
: In the afternoon of 17 Oct, a particularly violent explosion occurred at Anak Krakatau, blasting away a portion of the southern crater rim. A similar event might have been the final trigger for the catastrophic landslide that let the cone collapse and cause a devastating tsunami on 22 Dec 2018.
