Soputan vulkaan (Noord-Celebes): nieuwe uitbarsting produceert 5 km lange as kolom

Tuesday Aug 28, 2012 04:59 AM | DOOR: TOMPFEIFFER

Een relatief sterke uitbarsting vond plaats in Soputan vulkaan in Noord-Celebes zondagavond (21: 50 plaatselijke tijd, 15: 50 UTC). De uitbarsting duurde ongeveer 4 uur geproduceerd een grote ash plume stijgt eventueel hoog als 40.000 ft (ca. 12 km) VAAC Darwin rapporteert, terwijl lokale kranten beschrijven de hoogte van de uitbarstingskolom als 5 km die dreef noorden. De ash plume werd het laatst gezien op satellietbeelden vroeg gisteren drijven 120 km ZW op 20,000 ft hoogte.
Volgens een nieuwsartikel, lava werd gezien op de flank van de vulkaan, maar het is onduidelijk of een lavastroom werd vervaardigd of of het was gloeilamp bommen die geland waren op de flank (waarschijnlijker).
Geen meldingen van schade van de uitbarsting zijn beschikbaar. Mensen worden geadviseerd niet te benaderen of de vulkaan binnen 6 km straal klimmen, en dragen van gezichtsmaskers in geval van ash val.
De waarschuwing op het niveau van de vulkaan werd verhoogd tot niveau 3 "siaga" (waarschuwing) uit 4.

A strong eruption is occurring at Soputan volcano on North Sulawesi. Local news report that the volcano erupted a column of ash ("ash and smoke") of 5 km height earlier today (Sunday, 3 July). The Darwin VAAC even reports an ash plume at FL 460 (46,000 ft, ca. 14 km), which would be in fact indicating a major eruption. The ash plume is extending ca. 300 km to the west. [meer...]

A new small eruption took place at the lava dome of Soputan volcano on 6 October. Ash explosions produced plumes rising to 2.8 km (9,200 ft) a.s.l. and were accompanied by Strombolian activity that ejected incandescent material 50-150 m above the crater. On 7 October, white plumes rose to altitudes of 2.3-3.3 km (7,500-10,800 ft) a.s.l. Incandescent material was again ejected 50-150 m from the crater. Incandescent rockfalls traveled 500 m W. The next day, plumes rose to an altitude of 2 km (6,600 ft) a.s.l. and in the following days, the activity decreased. ... [meer...]

Background:

The small Soputan stratovolcano on the southern rim of the Quaternary Tondano caldera on the northern arm of Sulawesi Island is one of Sulawesi's most active volcanoes.  The youthful, largely unvegetated volcano rises to 1784 m and is located SW of Sempu volcano.  It was constructed at the southern end of a SSW-NNE trending line of vents.  During historical time the locus of eruptions has included both the summit crater and Aeseput, a prominent NE-flank vent that formed in 1906 and was the source of intermittent major lava flows until 1924.
