Sakurajima volcano (Kyushu, Japan) activity update
Saturday Jul 06, 2013 00:16 AM | DOOR: T
For over a week, no significant explosions have occurred at the volcano. Is it going to "hold its breath" and save power for the upcoming 2013 IVACEI conference in Kagoshima 19-24 July?
Tuesday, Jun 25, 2013
The volcano is back to about 1-2 explosions of moderate size per day.
Thursday, Jun 20, 2013
After its violent activity on 13 June, the volcano has been mostly "resting" since, and only had two modest explosions during the past week.
Thursday, Jun 13, 2013
After 10 days of almost no activity, the volcano has woken up violently with 3 powerful explosions last night (at 22:05 and 23:58 UTC, ash plumes to 10-13,000 ft) and this morning at 04:26. The eruption this morning appears to be one of the largest explosions for a long time, producing an ash plume rising to 16-20,000 ft (5-6 km) altitude. An SO2 plume is also visible on satellite data. ...
Friday, Jun 07, 2013
During the past 5 days, no explosions have been recorded by Tokyo VAAC. It seems that the volcano is currently taking a rest and at very low levels of activity, with no or only very small explosions occurring.
Thursday, May 30, 2013
After a few days of relatively calmness, the volcano erupted at least 3 times today already. It seems to have begun another cycle of increased explosion frequency, which seem typically to last a few days.
