Sangeang Api volcano (Flores Sea, Indonesia): active lava flow

Heat signal from Sangeang Api volcano during the past year (MIROVA)
Heat signal from Sangeang Api volcano during the past year (MIROVA)
Satellite data suggest that a new lava flow is active traveling from the summit crater of Doro Api through a narrow ravine on the SE side of the volcano.
It is possible that effusive activity which began in early June last year in reality never ceased, but increased again now. The volcano began erupting with a large explosion on 30 May and several smaller ones in early June last year. This was followed by the effusion of a flow that quickly traveled down the SE slope of the volcano. Thermal signals remained intense until November 2014, then decreased, but did not disappear, but clearly picked up again late April this year, indicating the presence of active lava always in the same path.
The current length of the flow is probably around 1.5 km.

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. [meer...]
