Paluweh volcano (Lesser Sunda Islands, Indonesia): news & updates
Paluweh volcano (Lesser Sunda Islands, Indonesia) activity update
Tuesday Dec 25, 2012 11:05 AM | BY: T
MODIS hot spots on Paluweh during the past 7 days (MODIS / Univ. Hawai'i)
Paluweh's new lava dome continues to grow. Judging from the distribution of thermal anomalies visible on MODIS imagery, pyroclastic flows have been travelling to the S and SE. Ash plumes have been rising to 8-9,000 ft.
Friday, Dec 21, 2012
The activity at the lava dome continues. An ash plume at approx. 6,000 ft (1.8 km) altitude could be seen on satellite images today. It was produced either by strong ash venting, explosions, new pyroclastic flows, or a combination of all.
Thursday, Dec 20, 2012
One of our correspondents in Indonesia reports that the dome now produces pyroclastic flows that reach the sea on the south side. Vegetation in the surroundings of the lava dome has all been killed.
Tuesday, Dec 18, 2012
A stronger phase of activity occurred at the lava dome this morning. VAAC Darwin reported an ash plume rising to 11,000 ft (3.4 km), i.a. 2.5 km above the dome.
Monday, Dec 17, 2012
Ash clouds from the still active dome continue to be detected on satellite images, but have been smaller than previously. Plumes were observed rising to 5,000 ft (1.5 km) altitude over the past days.
Friday, Dec 14, 2012
The new lava dome produced an ash plume rising to 10,000 ft (3 km) altitude today.

Introduction to Plate Tectonics
: The Earth's upper, rigid layer is broken into several plates which are in constant motion to one another. Most earthquakes and volcanoes occur as result of these plate boundaries.
