Augustine volcano (Alaska), activity update: dome growth continues at low rate
Low-level eruptive activity continues at Augustine Volcano. Changes in seismic signal characteristics as well as visual obsrevation suggest that Augustine is entering a phase of steady and slower effusion of lava, with intermittent block-and-ash-flows, rock avalanches, and rock falls from the summit lava dome.
The webcameras from AVO captured numerous hot avalanches and prolonged periods of incandescence in the summit area and on the upper northeast flank on several evenings. Satellite images show that thermal anomalies persist.
Observations made on overflights of the volcano this week indicate that the two lava flows on the north and northeast flanks continue to advance slowly. Occasional collapses of the lava flow fronts shed hot blocks and produce minor ash emissions. Estimates using photographs indicate that the new lava dome is about 70 m higher than the level of the lava dome formed in 1986.

Due to lack of participants, we decided to cancel the tour to North Sulawesi and postpone it to 2007. As an interesting alternative, we can offer a special trekking tour in Java and Bali from 5-20 August instead. There are two open spaces available.[details]

Tom and Marco are just back home from our pilot tour to Nyiragongo volcano, which was very successful, so we plan to repeat the tour in July this year already. In the near future, we will post photos from the tour as well as details about the tour. Stay tuned!
