Another high-altitude plume to 50,000ft (15km) has been generated- 3 days after the last one. It remains to be seen whether or not this becomes a trend in activity like in late 2004.
Monday, Jan 07, 2019
Another very powerful explosion has occurred- the 4th in this current eruptive period and first since December 8th- with a discrete (individual) explosion sending ash to 55,000ft- the highest Manam plume since an eruption in 2015 sent a plume to 65,000ft (~20km). A continuous eruption is now reaching up to 30,000ft (9km). There is no indication that a significantly-larger eruption like that of January 2005 is going to occur.
