MODIS thermal signal from Alaid volcano (MIROVA)
MODIS thermal signal from Alaid volcano (MIROVA)
New thermal anomalies have been detected from the volcano during the past days via satellite data. It is not known whether or not a new eruption is underway at the volcano which is rarely visited, but one of the most active ones in the area.
Its most recent eruption from Oct 2015 to January this year produced spectacular lava flows that flowed into the sea and enlarged the uninhabited island.
The Aviation Color Code was raised again to yellow.
