The GeoNet volcano observatory did their weekly visual, gas and temperature measurement flights last week.
Gas measurements revealed a decreasing trend of volcanic gases since 2 November. Sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions decreased from 681 to 484 tonnes/day. Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions decreased from 2712 to 1416 tonnes/day as well as hydrogen sulfide (H2S) emissions from 38 to 19 tonnes/day.
Summit vent area temperatures were measured in the range between 202 °C to 264 °C during Sep-Nov while in Jul-Aug were temperatures about 500 °C-600 °C. Temperatures between 243 °C and 264 °C were measured last week.
The crater lake level is lower than earlier this month.
Small ash emissions were observed, but the recent minor ash deposits are still occurring in the area of active vents. The effects on the ground of what is thought to have been an energetic steam-driven discharge of mud were observed around a new vent south of the main, high temperature active vent on the island.
Ongoing cloudy and humid weather conditions lead to forming vog (so-called volcanic smog) that may reach the coast.
Volcanic Alert Level remains at level 2 and the Aviation Colour Code remains at Yellow.
