Soputan volcano (North-Sulawesi, Indonesia): seismic unrest
Monday Oct 26, 2015 09:52 AM | DOOR: T
Seismic recording of Soputan volcano today (image: Andi / VolcanoDiscovery Indonesia)
The volcano is calm at the surface, but seismic activity shows it is at unrest and might erupt again soon.
Our correspondent Andi visited the volcano observatory during our ongoing tour to N-Sulawesi and Halmahera
: "Deep volcanic quakes (5-10 km depth) and shallow tremors has been more frequent (10 -15 times per day) since 3 oct - 22 oct. This suggests there is probably magma raising up slowly, but there are still no glowing spots visible."

Activity continues at the volcano, but has been decreasing. ...
Saturday, Mar 07, 2015
A new explosive eruptive phase occurred this morning, producing an ash plume that rose 4.5 km from the volcano's summit and pyroclastic flows that traveled 2.5 km.
Thursday, Feb 12, 2015
The eruption continues with an active viscous lava flow on the upper western flank. Occasional explosions such as this morning produce ash plume that rise to 3-4 km altitude, i.e. 1.5-2 km above the volcano.
Sunday, Feb 08, 2015
Activity remains elevated. An explosion produced an ash plume to 10,000 ft (3 km) altitude this morning.

The eruption continues at the volcano. It feeds a viscous lava flow about 500 m long on the volcano's upper western flank. ...
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.
