The GeoNet volcanologists undertook maintenance to improve the transmission of the seismic data and webcam images.
Ash and gas emissions continue from the vent (image: GeoNet)
Minor emissions continue at low intensity with venting of small to moderate ash.
The lake level has increased and even mud geyser has been observed within one of the main craters. Geysering has been quite common over the years when the lake level is high and water floods some of the gas vents.
The gas measuring flight confirmed a minor increase of CO2 volcanic gas measured in mid-January, while sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions remain at stable levels.
Volcanic Alert Level remains at level 2 and the Aviation Colour Code remains at Yellow.

Whakaari/White Island volcano (North Island, New Zealand) - Smithsonian / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report for 12 January-18 January 2022 (Continuing Activity)
On 18 January GeoNet reported results from an overflight of Whakaari/White Island the week before, noting a significant decrease of temperatures at the active vent area and a small decrease in gas emissions. Temperatures in the main vent area were as high as 191 degrees Celsius, a decrease from a high value of 516 measured in December. Gas emissions had slightly decreased since December; both sulfur dioxide and carbon dioxide gas emission rates were slightly below the 10-year average. ... Read all
