Heat signal from Raung volcano (MIROVA)
Intense ash emissions continue to produce a plume that stretches hundreds of kilometers to the SW. Many flights to and from Bali were canceled or delayed today again.
The detected heat emission, based on satellite data from NASA's MODIS sensor, remains elevated, although it has decreased significantly during the past days.

Intense ash emissions and northwesterly winds have repeatedly forced to close Bali's Denpasar International Airport (DPS) during the past days, resulting in many flight cancellations. ...
Tuesday, Aug 04, 2015
The eruption at the volcano remains very intense and might have increased during the past days. ...
Monday, Aug 03, 2015
The eruption continues. Ash emissions have decreased, while satellite-detected heat emission increased during the past days. This could suggest that activity is now more effusive (lava flows) than explosive (ash emissions) in style. ...
Friday, Jul 31, 2015
The attached satellite image from 20 July shows that the whole crater floor has been covered by fresh lava flows. ...

Land of Theseus
: The Saronic Gulf opposite Athens is one of the most beautiful and interesting areas of Greece, full of beautiful landscapes, small towns, islands, archeological remains and one of Europe's least known active volcanic areas. Join us on a relaxing tour to discover this fascinating area!
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.
Earthquakes near Volcanoes
: Our world-wide map continuously detects shallow earthquakes near volcanoes. These could be early signs of unrest and often precede eruptions.
A selection of photos of different features: lava flows, lava fountains, lava lakes, fumaroles and more.
