La Soufrière Hills volcano (Montserrat): activity update
The dome growth of Soufrière Hills volcano is now focused in the summit area and towards the east and northeast. The northern side of the lava dome has shown little change during the past week, as MVo reports. Rockfalls and pyroclastic flows have been restricted to the Tar River Valley and they were particularly numerous on 19-20 March. The largest pyroclastic flows have travelled up to 2km down Tar River valley.
For further explanations of the volcanic phenomena described, and information about the Soufrière Hills Volcano and the ongoing eruption, please look at the observatory’s website: http://www.mvo.ms.

Due to lack of participants, we decided to cancel the tour to North Sulawesi and postpone it to 2007. As an interesting alternative, we can offer a special trekking tour in Java and Bali from 5-20 August instead. There are two open spaces available.[meer...]
Tom and Marco are just back home from our pilot tour to Nyiragongo volcano, which was very successful, so we plan to repeat the tour in July this year already. In the near future, we will post photos from the tour as well as details about the tour. Stay tuned!... [meer...]
