MODIS thermal signal from Alaid (MIROVA)
Comparison of satellite images from July 2015 and January this year, showing that large parts of the summit crater have been filled by new lava (images: Nasa, annotations: Culture Volcan)
The ´most recent eruption of the volcano, which began in October last year, can be regarded as over and the aviation color code was lowered back to green.
Satellite data compiled by Culture Volcan show no more heat emission from the volcano since January and visible satellite imagery now show that the crater has been partially filled with fresh lava from the eruption.

Introduction to Plate Tectonics
: The Earth's upper, rigid layer is broken into several plates which are in constant motion to one another. Most earthquakes and volcanoes occur as result of these plate boundaries.
Volcano Eruption Special
: 11-16 Feb 2019: short-notice special tour to see the ongoing eruption of Karangetang volcano in northern Indonesia. Starting and ending in Manado. Small group 2-6 people, experienced volcano expedition leader from our team (Andi).
Small spherical balls of volcanic ash that form from a wet nucleus falling through a volcanic ash cloud.
Volcano Special Tours
: We organize tours to particularly active volcanoes and during ongoing eruptions for extended observation time from various viewpoints. These trips, exclusively for very small groups, are often announced only at short notice and require fast travel and flexibility. Each trip is accompanied by a volcanologist from our team. Examples include: Kilauea (Hawai'i), Colima (Mexico), Krakatau and many others.
