Aster satellite image 20 July with the lava flow (white) on Google Earth (image overlay: Culture Volcan)
The volcano remains active, and continues to feed the new lava flow traveling inside a ravine on the SE flank. This is confirmed by satellite imagery from 20 July, where the front of the lava flow seems to be already close to the coast.
Mon, 7 Jul 2014, 16:53
Activity continues at least intermittently. An ash plume at estimated 9,000 ft (2.7 km) altitude was observed Friday extending almost 100 km to the NW (VAAC Darwin).

Eruptions continue at the volcano after yesterday's major explosion. Dense ash plumes rising from the summit crater can be seen on this morning's satellite images, and a MODIS hot spot is visible on the latest satellite data, suggesting fresh magma continues to arrive at the volcano's summit crater. ...meer Lees alle

: In the afternoon of 17 Oct, a particularly violent explosion occurred at Anak Krakatau, blasting away a portion of the southern crater rim. A similar event might have been the final trigger for the catastrophic landslide that let the cone collapse and cause a devastating tsunami on 22 Dec 2018.
Divergent plate boundaries in oceans
: Two ocean plates move apart from each other. Hot upwelling mantle material forms magmas that continuously produce new oceanic crust. An ocean widens.
