Rabaul (Tavurvur) volcano news & eruption update

Rabaul volcano (PNG): activity summary 16 June - 14 July - weak ash emissions

Thursday Jul 18, 2013 10:05 AM | DOOR: T

RVO reported that during 16 June-14 July white-to-light-gray plumes sometimes containing fine ash rose at most 2 km from Rabaul caldera's Tavurvur cone and drifted NW and SE. Roaring and rumbling noises also continued, and seismicity was low.
Ashfall was reported in areas downwind including Rabaul town (3-5 km NW) during 16-30 June. The lava dome on the crater floor of Tavurvur continued to glow; on 26 June and 4 July observers near the dome noted brief incandescence at the vent associated with strong and rapid venting. Explosions during 10-14 July generated dense gray ash clouds that drifted NW, causing ashfall
between Namanula Hill (3 km W) and Malaguna No.1 (NW), and Pilapila and Tavui Point.
