Volcano news: Soputan

Soputan volcano had a small phreatic eruption on 26 December around 12h30 local time, probably caused by heavy rainfall onto the hot lava dome. On 27 December at 0400, a Strombolian eruption began that lasted ~50 minutes. Incandescent volcanic material was ejected ~35 m, and avalanches of volcanic material traveled as far as 750 m E. Around 06h40 the avalanches became larger, as pyroclastic avalanches occurred from the edge of the lava. The avalanches extended 200 m E, and booming noises were heard as far as 5 km from the summit. The Darwin VAAC reported that an ash plume reached a height of ~5.8 km (~19,000 ft) a.s.l. and drifted SE. ...plus

Since the eruption on 19 Aril, 2005, the lava dome continues to grow, producing frequent small block and ash flows (avalanches of hot lava from the unstable parts of the dome). ...plus

From the GVP/USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report (20-26 April 2005): ...plus
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.
