Paluweh volcano (Lesser Sunda Islands, Indonesia): news & updates
Paluweh volcano (Flores Sea, Indonesia): continuing lava dome growth

MODIS hot spot data for Paluweh island, showing the hot pyroclastic deposits S, E and W of the dome (MODIS, Univ. Hawaii)
The lava dome remains relatively active and produces frequent explosions and/or hot rock avalanches. Hot deposits from these can be seen on MODIS satellite data on the eastern, southern and western flank of the dome. Several ash plumes rising to altitudes of about 7,000 ft (2.1 km) were detected in the past days.
Monday, Apr 29, 2013
Activity from the lava dome continues. A larger event (explosion and/or dome collapse) produced a fairly large ash plume rising to 10,000 ft (3 km) altitude that drifted 60 nautical miles NW this morning (VAAC Darwin). [more]

The lava dome remains active. An ash plume rose to 7,000 ft this morning, probably caused by an explosion or another partial dome collapse. [more]
Tuesday, Apr 16, 2013
Activity from the lava dome continues, in the form of explosions and rockfalls/pyroclastic flows due to mass loss from the dome. An ash plume was observed this morning rising to 7,000 ft (2.1 km) altitude and drifting 20 nautical miles to the east (VAAC Darwin).
Sunday, Apr 07, 2013
Frequent ash emissions are being reported by VAAC Darwin. Today, ash plumes rose to 10,000 ft (3 km) altitude and drifted 45 nautical miles to the WSW. [more]

Ethiopia and the Danakil
: Ethiopia is a very diverse and beautiful country. Thanks to our numerous expeditions to Erta Ale and Dallol
and beyond, we have an extensive collection of images showing the volcano's lava lake, the desert, the colorful hot springs of Dallol, the vast salt lakes, camel caravans and more.
: In the afternoon of 17 Oct, a particularly violent explosion occurred at Anak Krakatau, blasting away a portion of the southern crater rim. A similar event might have been the final trigger for the catastrophic landslide that let the cone collapse and cause a devastating tsunami on 22 Dec 2018.
