Kelut volcano (East Java, Indonesia): eruption update: possible lava dome forming
Friday Feb 21, 2014 10:53 AM | DOOR: T
MODIS hot spot at Kelut volcano (ModVolc, Univ. Hawaii)
A MODIS hot spot is visible at the crater, suggesting that a new lava dome could be forming there. This would be the effusive continuation of the recent explosion on 13 Feb, as magma with much less gas content continues to arrive at the vent.
Thursday, Feb 20, 2014
The volcano itself remains relatively calm and produces only a degassing plume. So far, no clear picture has been available about what exactly is going on at the crater itself (e.g. whether a new lava dome is forming). ...
Tuesday, Feb 18, 2014
Activity has calmed down at the volcano. The new VSI webcam
shows the outer crater area covered with heavy ash deposits and only a small steam plume from the crater. ...
Sunday, Feb 16, 2014
The volcano continues to emit a dense steam plume and some ash, but has not produced new explosions. Apart from that the 2007 lava dome has been removed by the explosion, it is not very clear (nor easy to find out) what is currently happening in the crater. ...
Saturday, Feb 15, 2014
Additional details and new estimates about the recent explosion are emerging. Unfortunately, a 4th fatality caused by the eruption has now been confirmed by BNPB. All victims were within 7 km of the volcano. More than 100,000 people have been evacuated. ...
Friday, Feb 14, 2014
Ash from the eruption is still drifting over the eastern Indian Ocean. More than 100,000 people have reportedly evacuated areas close to the volcano. Heavy ash fall occurred in vast areas of Java. A preliminary judgement of the erupted ash suggests that the explosion was a magmatic event, i.e. triggered by a new bash of fresh magma that seems to have risen very quickly to the surface: ...
