Kadovar volcano (Papua New Guinea): eruption continues to be intense

Friday Jan 19, 2018 09:21 AM | DOOR: T

The eruption of the volcano continues with intense, near-constant explosive activity, generating ash plumes that rise to approx. 10,000 ft (3 km).
According to the Rabaul Volcano Observatory (RVO), a short lava flow is descending on the island volcano's flank, but it is unclear whether it has reached the ocean. A seismometer has been installed on the island and is detecting ongoing tremor indicating the continued rise of magma. Emissions of sulfur dioxide also remain high, suggesting that magma supply remains significant.
How the eruption evolves is impossible to predict, but due to its vicinity to the sea water, the risk of large phreatomagmatic explosions (caused when water gets in contact with magma) and potential tsunamis that could be triggered in this scenario is elevated. It will depend very much on the available amount of eruptible magma still stored inside the volcano's plumbing system.
According to local and regional news, between 200 and 2000 people have been evacuated so far.
