Volcanic activity worldwide 1 Sep 2013: Guntur

zo, 1 sep 2013, 17:04
17:04 PM |
Guntur (West Java): The alert level was again raised to level 2 on a scale of 0-4 (Waspada, "watch") following an increase in seismic activity observed since 15 August.
An elevated number of volcano-tectonic earthquakes (related to rock-fracturing) and the appearance of tremor (indicating magma movements) suggest that new magma could be currently intruding into the volcanic system and lead to new activity which would threat numerous nearby villages and the town of Garut located only about 8 km away from the summit.

Klyu seen from the KVERT observatory this morning; the lava flow is indicated by the white plume rising on the right side of the upper flank
Kliuchevskoi (Kamchatka): A small lava flow has started to descend on the upper northern flank of the volcano. Sometimes intense strombolian continues at the summit vent. Glowing blocks from the lava flow often detach from the front and roll down the steep slope of the volcano. No significant ash emissions have occurred so far. ... Lees alle

MODIS hot spot data (past 7 days) for Sakurajima volcano (ModVolc, Univ. Hawaii)
Sakurajima (Kyushu, Japan): On 21 August, the volcano had at least 8 (!) vulcanian-type explosions with ash plumes rising up to 15,000 ft (4,5 km) altitude that often drifted over the bay and Kagoshima city, causing ash fall there. Some of the explosions can be seen on the following time-lapse video. The volcano has been in an elevated state of activity during the past weeks. A significant hot spot is visible on MODIS data, suggesting that magma levels are high in the crater and the presence of significant amounts of still hot fresh deposits on the flanks. ... Lees alle
