Heat signal from Manam volcano (MIROVA)
Heat signal from Manam volcano (MIROVA)
Darwin VAAC reported a small ash plume visible on satellite imagery extending 10 nautical miles west from the small island this morning.
A moderate thermal anomaly from the volcano has been present, and become stronger during June-July, during the past months as well. This suggests that mild eruptive activity, perhaps the slow growth of a lava dome at the summit, with sporadic explosions continues.
