Rinjani volcano (Lombok): news & activity updates

Rinjani volcano (Lombok, Indonesia): eruption continues, fresh images from volcano

The eruption continues with no significant change. When observed yesterday on location, the Barujari cone was in violent strombolian activity and the lava flow was still weakly alimented, creating a small steam plume at the lake entry of the flow.
Impressively, the lake temperature has risen so much that large parts of the surface are steaming. The volcanic activity has been producing only smaller ash plumes during the past days, which did no longer affect air traffic to / from Lombok and Rinjani.

The eruption continues. Ash emissions have decreased recently, with column heights ranging between a few hundred to 2000 meters. On the other hand, mild to moderate strombolian activity from the Barujari cone and the effusion of a new lava flow have been stable and seem to be going on strongly. ... [meer...]

Friday, Nov 06, 2015
The eruption of the volcano continues to produce intense ash emissions. However, to the great relief of travelers to and from Bali, the strong easterly winds that had swept the plume over Bali during the past days, forcing the Denpasar International airport to shut down, have ceased and given way to weak southerly and northerly winds, thus allowing the airport to reopen. ...

Wednesday, Nov 04, 2015
The eruption has intensified a lot over the past few days. Activity takes place from a lateral vent on the Barujari cone inside the volcano's caldera, producing continuous ash emissions and feeding a new viscous lava flow. The lava flow has been advancing more than 500 m in two lobes towards the NE. ... [meer...]
