Following a week-long deflation, pressure returned to Kīlauea in full force, evidenced by an 8-microradian inflation at the summit! Correspondingly, the summit lava lake has returned to the previous record height of ~60m/200ft below Halema‘uma‘u crater floor, with exceptionally bright glow visible from the Jaggar Overlook over the past two nights! In the past, similar high lava stands have caused an increases in rim collapse and rarely, lava sprays visible from the museum! Read more... Lees alle

Shiveluch volcano continues to be very active, with a growing lava dome and occasional large ash explosions. A strong eruption that produced an ash plume that rose to 6 km altitude occurred on 29 May, Russian scientists from KVERT report. According to a Itar-Tass news entry, the plume eventually reached 7.3 km and the eruption followed an increase of seismic activity. Read more... Lees alle

We zijn altijd blij met wat feedback over onze reizen. Geologie student Isabel van Tübingen schrijft over de recente tour op Santorini: "deze reis, de eerste vakantie sinds het begin van mijn studie, vervuld alles ik had gedroomd over: wandelen, geologie en cultuur in een meest aangename mix. De reis was zowel ontspannen en inspirerende evenals. ... "

Small earthquake swarm at Katla volcano during 28-29 May 2012 (Icelandic Met Office)
Een zwerm van 14 kleine tot zeer kleine meestal erg ondiep bevingen vond plaats in Katla vulkaan gisteren en vandaag. Epicentrum diepten werden gemeld tussen 0,1 en 12.2 km. te oordelen naar de diepte en de omvang van de bevingen, de meest waarschijnlijke oorzaak voor de seismische zwerm aanpassingen van het hydrothermale systeem onder de ijskap, en waarschijnlijk niet magmatische indringers zijn (die zou mogelijk indicatoren van een toekomstige nieuwe uitbarsting).

De nieuwe lavakoepel en rode gloed op de muur koepel van een geïsoleerd deel van actieve lava, die op de westelijke kant van de krater/koepel (27 mei 2012 bevindt zich).
Tijdens een recent bezoek aan de krater van Merapi 26-27 mei, kon onze vriend Øystein vanuit Jakarta duidelijk een nieuwe lavakoepel die langzaam binnen een depressie van de top krater opbouwen waarnemen. De koepel is niet erg actief, maar heeft een zeer klein gloeiende deel van lava aan het westelijke uiteinde. Deze activiteit is consistent met de meest recente gegevens uit de Merapi vulkaan observatorium verslagen over seismische niveaus op het moment.

After a week-long deflation on Kīlauea, lava flows which had reached within 0.5mi/750m of the ocean finally felt the pressure relief and came to a pause. At the time of this writing there is still low pressure on the volcano, and the longer this continues the more likely that the plumbing system will be disrupted and that lava will re-emerge in a new location -- whether on a new point up the lava tube, or even all the way back to Pu`u `O`o crater on the east rift zone. Magma continues to come into the volcano, as evidenced by continued extension, and without an outlet, sooner or later something will have to give! While there is no red lava visible on the coast today, there is still bright glow from the newest summit vent in the National Park. This is a crucial period of change for the volcano, and we all await what will happen next!

On 25 May, the alert level of Sirung volcano was placed back to 2 (out of 4), based on visual seismic observations that indicate a decreasing trend since the eruption alert was issued on 12 May.
