Raung volcano (East Java, Indonesia): strong thermal signal suggest increased activity

Thermal signal from Raung volcano (MIROVA)
A strong thermal signal visible on satellite data suggests that eruptive activity in the volcano's summit crater has again picked up during the past two days.
During late 2014 and early 2015, the volcano had been in strombolian activity and effused a lava flow inside its vast summit caldera. This activity had gradually decreased during the past months, but might now have resumed.

Rumbling was frequently heard at the observation post. Crater incandescence was observed during February and on 12 April. ...

Photos from Germany
: Germany has a large number of volcanoes - most of them extinct, but the Eifel volcanic field is still potentially active.
Current activity of Bardarbunga volcano, Iceland
: An intense seismic crisis started at Bárdarbunga volcano on 16 August 2014 and is continuing at the time of writing (23 Aug). It may or may not lead to a volcanic eruption, possibly under the Vatnajökull ice cap.
