MODIS thermal signal from Rinjani (MIROVA)
It seems that the eruption at the Barujari cone is over.
After a period of intermittent, sometimes quite strong vulcanian-type explosions at the end of Nov and early Dec, no explosive activity has occurred since 3 December and no thermal signal is being recorded on satellite data.

The volcano continues to erupt, but activity has decreased a lot. When visited during 30 Nov - 2 Dec, "the volcano erupted just 2-3 times eruption per day", but some explosions were fairly big (s. image attached).
Tuesday, Nov 17, 2015
The eruption continues with no significant change. When observed yesterday on location, the Barujari cone was in violent strombolian activity and the lava flow was still weakly alimented, creating a small steam plume at the lake entry of the flow. ...
Sunday, Nov 15, 2015
The eruption continues. Ash emissions have decreased recently, with column heights ranging between a few hundred to 2000 meters. On the other hand, mild to moderate strombolian activity from the Barujari cone and the effusion of a new lava flow have been stable and seem to be going on strongly. ...
Thursday, Nov 12, 2015
According to local observers, the eruption has decreased in strength overall, although strombolian activity seems to still be intense and is visible on webcam images. ...

Volcano Special Tours
: We organize tours to particularly active volcanoes and during ongoing eruptions for extended observation time from various viewpoints. These trips, exclusively for very small groups, are often announced only at short notice and require fast travel and flexibility. Each trip is accompanied by a volcanologist from our team. Examples include: Kilauea (Hawai'i), Colima (Mexico), Krakatau and many others.
Nyiragongo volcano photos
: Nyiragongo (DR Congo) has the world's largest and most active lava lake. Enjoy our pictures taken during several expeditions over the past years.
