Slamet volcano news & eruption updates:
Slamet volcano (Central Java, Indonesia) activity update: Alert level raised- high unrest
Friday Aug 09, 2019 18:47 PM | BY: MJFLEGEND
Seismicity reaching levels of 1000 earthquakes per day recently. Credit: MAGMA Indonesia
PVMBG has raised the alert level to 2 due to a two month sustained increase in seismicity (over 50,000 earthquakes!) and, in the last few weeks, inflation, gas emissions (with steam plumes rising 300m above the crater), rising hot spring temperatures and emergence of seismic tremor. All of this indicates that magma is rising under the mountain. An exclusion zone of 2km is in place, as the likelihood of a new eruption is elevated.

PVMBG reported that during 21 April-21 May dense white plumes rose as high as 700 m above Slamet's crater. ...

Activity at the volcano has increased and VSI raised the alert level to "siaga", 3 on a scale of 1-4. The mild strombolian activity which had been going on for months at the volcano has become more and more intense since the beginning of September. Some explosions in the past days have been strong enough to eject incandescent material to all over the summit cone of the volcano. ...

Strombolian activity from the vent inside the summit crater continues. A small ash plume was reported today by Darwin VAAC.
Friday, Sep 05, 2014
Strombolian explosions are continuing from the new cone inside the summit crater. Some of them produce small ash plumes spotted on satellite imagery by VAAC Darwin who monitor the (volcanically very busy) region for volcanic ash plumes.
