Sirung volcano (Pantar island, Indonesia): new phreatic eruption and strong degassing

Thursday May 17, 2012 10:05 AM | BY: T

The Sirung stratovolcano on the remote Pantar island in Indonesia has come back to life with a series of probably phreatic explosions and strong degassing.
On 8 May a 3-hour long eruption took place at Sirung volcano. The eruption was accompanied by loud sounds and incandescent tephra observed rising 10 m above the crater. The explosion created an ash plume that reached 3.5 km altitude and drifted to the north, producing ashfall up to 4 mm thick near the crater.
During 9-12 May white plumes rose 30-50 m above the crater. A sulfur odor was reported in areas up to 3 km away on 12 May. That same day CVGHM raised the Alert Level to 3 (on a scale of 1-4) and recommended that visitors not approach the volcano within a 2.5 km radius.
