Semeru volcano (E-Java, Indonesia), activity update: ash plumes
Thursday Sep 27, 2007 19:42 PM | BY: T.S.
A pilot reported a ash plume that rose up to 7 km on 22 September but there wasn´t ash detected on satellite images.
Thursday, Nov 30, 2006
Based on a pilot report, the Darwin VAAC reported an ash plume riging to 7.6 km (25,000 ft) on 22 November, drifting to the S. Various other reports and news sources indicate that the crater's typical strombolian is relatively powerful these days and that blocks and bombs are frequently ejected outside the crater.[more]
Friday, Aug 18, 2006
Strombolian activity at Semeru was observed to be weak during the past days when our group observed and climbed the volcano. Ash emissions are taking place at irregular intervals of 5-20 minutes and rarely exceed 300-500 m in height. During the night, only little incandescent bombs and blocks are visible. [more]
Sunday, Aug 14, 2005
Semeru is in a state of high activity as observed by the VolcanoDiscovery team during the past days. Strong strombolian activity is taking place at frequent intervals of 5-10 minutes, producing billowing ash clouds of 1-2 km height and showering much of the summit cone with fresh gray ash.[more]
