Bagana volcano: news and activity updates
Bagana volcano (Bougainville Island, Papua New Guinea) activity update: occasional ash explosions, thermal anomaly
Wednesday Sep 26, 2012 10:05 AM | DOOR: T
An ash plume rising to 8,000 ft (2.4 km) was reported last night by VAAC Darwin. Along with the frequent SO2 plumes visible on satellite data, one can assume that there is ongoing activity (probably a growing lava dome or small flow and intermittent explosions).

An SO2 plume from the volcano was visible yesterday and suggests that activity has been higher during the past days.
