MODIS hot spot data (past 7 days) for Paluweh volcano (ModVolc, Univ. Hawaii)
Ash plumes rising to 10,000 ft (3 km) altitude have been observed yesterday and today. The lava dome obviously continues to be active and regularly produces explosions and/or rock avalanches that cause ash plumes.
Mon, 13 May 2013, 15:46
The lava dome continues to be active and produce explosions and small pyroclastic flows from time to time, generating ash plumes rising to 7-10,000 ft such as today.

MODIS hot spot data for Paluweh island, showing the hot pyroclastic deposits S, E and W of the dome (MODIS, Univ. Hawaii)
The lava dome remains relatively active and produces frequent explosions and/or hot rock avalanches. Hot deposits from these can be seen on MODIS satellite data on the eastern, southern and western flank of the dome. Several ash plumes rising to altitudes of about 7,000 ft (2.1 km) were detected in the past days.
Mon, 29 Apr 2013, 13:07
Activity from the lava dome continues. A larger event (explosion and/or dome collapse) produced a fairly large ash plume rising to 10,000 ft (3 km) altitude that drifted 60 nautical miles NW this morning (VAAC Darwin).
Sat, 20 Apr 2013, 08:44
The lava dome remains active. An ash plume rose to 7,000 ft this morning, probably caused by an explosion or another partial dome collapse.

Ethiopia and the Danakil
: Ethiopia is a very diverse and beautiful country. Thanks to our numerous expeditions to Erta Ale and Dallol
and beyond, we have an extensive collection of images showing the volcano's lava lake, the desert, the colorful hot springs of Dallol, the vast salt lakes, camel caravans and more.
Solar Eclipse & volcano tour
: A total solar eclipse will occur on 14 Dec 2020 and pass over southern Chile and Argentina. Chile's most active volcano Villarrica is located exactly on the center line where the eclipse will be best to observe.
We offer you the unique chance to combine the eclipse with a tour to one the world's most beautiful volcanic areas - the Lake District in Chile.
