A few days ago, the official alert level of the volcano has been lowered to 2 (out of 4). It seems that no, or almost no eruptive activity has taken place at the volcano over the past days. read all
Tuesday, Aug 18, 2015
It seems that at least some activity has resumed again. Several observers reported a light ash plume rising from the volcano and drifting SW. ... read all

With a small group we climbed Raung
during 14-15 August 2015. We might have witnessed the end of the large 2015 summit eruption, which during June-early August produced large lava flows, lava fountains and significant ash plumes. ... read all
Sunday, Aug 16, 2015
Activity has strongly decreased at the volcano. When we visited Raung during 14-15 August, we observed pulsating, often near-continous ash emissions that produced plumes of several hundred meters. They often consisted of dark jets of ash, presumably from phreatomagmatic activity inside the conduit. ... read all
Wednesday, Aug 12, 2015
Small ash emissions continue. This morning, a plume of ash approx. 500 m high drifted 15 km to the west of the volcano. ... read all

Kelut volcano photos
: A new lava dome grew inside the crater lake during the effusive eruption in late 2007, replacing most of the lake. Watch the birth of a new mountain!
Latest quakes in Greece
: Greece has a lot of earthquake activity, but most of them occur around the margin of the Aegean microplate. The Cycladic islands are located in its center and therefore seismically comparably quiet.
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.
