Raung volcano (East Java, Indonesia): strong thermal signal suggest increased activity

Thermal signal from Raung volcano (MIROVA)
Thermal signal from Raung volcano (MIROVA)
A strong thermal signal visible on satellite data suggests that eruptive activity in the volcano's summit crater has again picked up during the past two days.
During late 2014 and early 2015, the volcano had been in strombolian activity and effused a lava flow inside its vast summit caldera. This activity had gradually decreased during the past months, but might now have resumed.
