An explosive eruption produced an ash plume rising to 7,000 ft (2.1 km) earlier today. The plume was observed on satellite data extending 40 nautical miles to the west (VAAC Darwin).
Wednesday, Mar 27, 2013
A weak SO2 plume is visible today above Manam, indicating some ongoing activity. A hot spot at the summit is visible on MODIS data, likely indicating that a lava dome is growing there.

An important SO2 plume was detected on today's satellite image, suggesting a phase of increased lava emission. No ash plume have been alerted of (so far).
