Mt. St. Helens activity update
CVO (the Cascades Volcano Ovservatory, USGS) reports that the lava dome inside Mt. St. Helens' crater continues slowly to grow. Seismicity is low, and other eruptive activiy is limited to small emissions of steam and volcanic gases, and minor production of ash.
CVO warms of the danger of small lahars and the possibility that the eruption might intensify with little or no warning at any time.

The two volcano tours on Hawai'i have come to an end, or better, the time to enjoy these fresh memories has now started. We look back on 10 days packed with impressions from exceptional activity at Kilauea volcano,- we have been incredibly lucky both as to activity (Kilauea was/still is in one of its most active phases since the start of the eruption in 1983), and the weather and last but not least thanks to the great mix of people we have had on board. Not only got we to see lots of lava during the 5 days each, but we also had our great share of fun, met interesting new people from all over and did many other interesting and nice activities aside.
Tom took many photos, some of which will soon be available (mainly on www.decadevolcano.net).
Due to the sucess of the tour, the VolcanoDiscovery Hawai'i team (Tom, Phil and Philippe) can offer to repeat the tour for individuals or small groups at almost any date on request, in English and/or French as well as Portuguese. In addition, two new fixed dates, now open for inscriptions, are now set up for mid November: 13-18 and 20-25 November, 2005. Details of the tour can be found at this page.
(Since Tom will be on location as well during these tours, the languages the tour can be done, are: German, English, French, Danish, Italian, Greek and Portuguese or a mix of these).
Kilauea is erupting a lot of lava and the expedition is a huge sucess (so far)... Two active ocean entries, uncountable breakouts on the flowfield and the upper slopes as well as an intense activity at and around the Pu'u O'o cone are present. Tom and his small group are on location,- more photos and reports will be posted when time permitting.
