Papandayan volcano (Western Java, Indonesia) - Smithsonian / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report for 20 November-26 November 2002 (New Activity / Unrest)
During 22-25 November at Papandayan small-scale continuous ash-and-gas explosions occurred, sending plumes to 300-600 m above the volcano. Tremor, tectonic earthquakes, and shallow and deep-volcanic earthquakes were recorded. An eruption on the 20th produced a NE-directed blast that sent material as far as 2 km away from the crater, burning the crater-facing sides of trees as far as 400 m away. ... Read all
