Raung volcano (East Java, Indonesia): continuing eruption, increasing activity
Tuesday Aug 04, 2015 16:19 PM | BY: T
Landsat 8 satellite image of Raung on 27 July. A gray patch left of a forest fire is visible on the NE flank.
The eruption at the volcano remains very intense and might have increased during the past days.
An ash plume of 200 km length has been drifting south today.
According to Indonesian press reports, new fissures have been reported (probably on the western flank) and incandescent ejecta were seen to up to a height of 1500 m. Some of them might have landed on the NE flank, where they probably caused a forest fire observed during 20-25 July.
