Jebel Zubair (Red Sea, Jemen): weak eruptive activity resumes on new island

Signs of weak continuing or renewed activity could be spotted again on recent satellite data after few weeks with no evidence of activity.
The attached MODIS / Terra satellite image from 11 Nov shows a gas plume drifting NE from the new island as well as a discolored water plume extending south. The discolored sea water is likely caused by dissolved volcanic gasses (H2S in particular).
The absence of steam suggests that there is no lava entering the sea and no submarine effusive activity.

A new island has emerged in late Oct at the submarine eruption site, but the exact date is currently not known. At the moment, satellite images do not allow to determine whether eruptive activity at the island continues, but suggest that it is currently low or has stopped. If any, it might be strombolian or the effusion of small lava flows. The last ash /steam plume was spotted a MODIS satellite image on 30 Oct. [details]
