MODIS hot spot data (past 7 days) for Chirpoi volcano (ModVolc, Univ. Hawaii)
A thermal hot spot remains visible on satellite data, suggesting continuing activity.
Wed, 7 Aug 2013, 09:03
SVERT maintains yellow alert level, but could not obtain satellite data during the past week to determine whether activity continued.

MODIS hot spot (past 2 days) for Chirpoi volcano (Univ. Hawai'i, ModVolc)
A hot spot persists at the summit of the volcano, suggesting that some sort of activity is present.

MODIS hot spot at Chirpoi volcano in the Kuriles (MODIS, Univ. Hawaii)
A hot spot was again detected on MODIS satellite data, which suggests the presence of lava or hot gasses. However, visual satellite images showed no degassing plume, which would have confirmed possible activity at the volcano.
Sun, 26 May 2013, 10:05
A thermal anomaly was visible until 19 May, perhaps also until 22 May, but has not been detected since then. This might be due to cloud cover or a suggestion that activity has ceased.
Wed, 6 Mar 2013, 11:05
SVERT reported that weak steam-and-gas emissions from Snow, a volcano of Chirpoi, were observed on 25 February, and 1 and 3 March. A thermal anomaly was detected in satellite images on 28 February and 3 March. Read more...
Tue, 19 Feb 2013, 11:05
SVERT reported that a thermal anomaly and weak steam-and-gas emissions from Snow, a volcano of Chirpoi, were detected in satellite images during 14-15 February; cloud cover prevented observations of the volcano on other days during 11-18 February.
Wed, 9 Jan 2013, 09:04
A thermal hot spot continues to be visible at the summit, indicating some sort of activity (perhaps slow extrusion of lava dome, strombolian activity) goes on there.
Thu, 3 Jan 2013, 11:05
SVERT reported that a thermal anomaly was detected over Snow, a volcano of Chirpoi, during 24-25, 28, and 30 December; cloud cover prevented observations of the volcano on other days during 24-31 December.
