Rabaul (Tavurvur) volcano news & eruption update

Rabaul volcano (PNG): activity summary 16-30 November 2013 - decreasing activity with weak ash emissions

Thursday Dec 05, 2013 11:15 AM | DOOR: T

RVO reported that Rabaul caldera's Tavurvur cone was generally quiet during 16-30 November. A few explosions during 15-18 November generated ash plumes that rose to low altitudes (no more than 1 km) and drifted E, SE, and NW. Small amounts of fine-grained ash fell around Rabaul town (3-5 km NW). White-to-light-gray emissions rose from the crater the remainder of the month.
