Evolution of tremor amplitude at Raung volcano (VSI)
Evolution of tremor amplitude at Raung volcano (VSI)
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.
What probably was the volcano's most significant eruption in at least 100 years, is probably over.

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. ... [more]
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. [more]
