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.
