Nyamuragira volcano (DRCongo) activity update

Monday Jul 07, 2014 17:09 PM | DOOR: T

SO2 plume over Nyiragongo / Nyamuragira volcanoes (NOAA)
SO2 plume over Nyiragongo / Nyamuragira volcanoes (NOAA)
MODIS hot spots at Nyiragongo / Nyamuragira volcanoes (MODVOLC, Univ. Hawaii)
MODIS hot spots at Nyiragongo / Nyamuragira volcanoes (MODVOLC, Univ. Hawaii)
The new eruption continues in the form of a lava lake in the summit caldera. No evidence of lava flowing on the flanks of the giant volcano is availabe.
Thermal satellite data show the hot spot at the summit and a large SO2 plume from both Nyamuragira and neighboring Nyiragongo, which also has a (very active) lava lake, are evidence of this.
Unfortunately, the area of both volcanoes is still unsafe to travel to.

Recent NASA satellite images from 11 June 2013 show a thick steam and gas plume rising from a pit crater in the summit caldera of Nyamuragira volcano. No evidence of lava close to the surface was found, while the lava lake in neighboring Nyiragongo remains well active and visible on the same images. ... [meer...]
