Krakatau volcano news & eruption updates:
Krakatau volcano (Sunda Strait, Indonesia): increasing activity, possibly paroxysm with lava fountains and lava flow
Monday Nov 19, 2018 02:57 AM | DOOR: T
Lava flow and possible lava fountaining from Anak Krakatau last night seen from the observatory's webcam near Carita
Heat signal from Krakatau on MODIS data (Mirova)
The activity of the volcano has increased yesterday. Available data suggest it might have had a so-called paroxysm, a temporary strong peak of activity including possibly lava fountaining and lava flow emission.
Strong glow was visible from the coast in 40 km distance, seemingly showing a lava flow that descended on the southeastern flank, probably accompanied by near-continuous strombolian activity. On the attached picture, a steam plume is visible that originates from the lava flow reaching the coast.
The volcano observatory reported continuous tremor and a strong thermal signal is visible on MODIS satellite data. VAAC Darwin reports continuous ash emissions to low altitudes.Personal note:
We are right now on the way to the island and will be out of reach until next weekend.

The activity of the volcano continues. Our group who visited the island this week reported frequent weak explosions and ash emissions with lots of electric discharges. Lees alle

Volcanoes in the Solar System
: The Earth is not the only place with volcanic activity. Active volcanism also occurs at at least 3 other bodies in our Solar System.
Dallol hot springs
: One of the most bizarre landscapes on earth: Dallol is a vast and very active hydrothermal field creating a colorful array of hot springs, small geysers, salt towers, colorful lakes and ponds in the middle of the deepest part of the Danakil desert and the Karum salt lake.
