Paluweh volcano (Lesser Sunda Islands, Indonesia): news & updates
Paluweh volcano (off Flores Island, Indonesia) activity update

MODIS hot spot data (past 7 days) for Paluweh volcano (ModVolc, Univ. Hawaii)
Ash plumes rising to 10,000 ft (3 km) altitude have been observed yesterday and today. The lava dome obviously continues to be active and regularly produces explosions and/or rock avalanches that cause ash plumes.
Monday, May 13, 2013
The lava dome continues to be active and produce explosions and small pyroclastic flows from time to time, generating ash plumes rising to 7-10,000 ft such as today.
Monday, May 06, 2013
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).
Saturday, Apr 20, 2013
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.
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).

: The Azores, a cluster of volcanic islands in the Atlantic Ocean, are famous for their very pleasant climate, breathtaking green and unspoiled landscapes and nature. They also have deep history and you'll find warm hospitality. Our new tour, guided by a photographer and volcanologist, will lead to five islands: Sao Miguel, Faial, Terceira, Pico and Flores - each with its distinct character to discover.
