Manam volcano news and eruption updates (New Guinea):

Manam volcano (Papua New Guinea): activity summary 18 Nov - 4 Dec 2012: strombolian activity and lava flow

Thursday Dec 06, 2012 11:05 AM | BY: T

RVO reported that during 16-19 November white and blue plumes rose from Manam's Southern Crater. During 18-30 November crater incandescence and ejected incandescent tephra were observed on most nights, and a small volume of lava effused from a vent in the SE valley.
During 20-30 November occasional dark gray ash plumes rose 500 m above the crater and produced ashfall in the NW and SE parts of the island. A small pyroclastic flow traveled down the SW valley on 21 November, and during 21-22 November roaring and rumbling was heard. White vapor plumes rose from Main Crater during the reporting period.
