Tinakula volcano (Solomon Islands): possible new eruption

The volcano might have recently entered a new eruptive phase: A small steam plume can be seen rising from the summit crater, as recent photos taken from a passenger aboard an airliner passing over the volcano showed. In addition, weak thermal anomalies have been detected on satellite data.
New activity is likely a small-scale strombolian-type eruption from the summit vents, the most typical activity of the volcano. The volcano, very similar in morphology and activity style to Stromboli in Italy, or Batu Tara in Indonesia, is one of the most active ones in the Pacific and erupts on average every few years.
The last confirmed activity took place in 2012. Due to its remoteness and the lack of population and monitoring, as well as the typical small scale of its activity, not all eruptions of the volcano might get noticed.

: In the afternoon of 17 Oct, a particularly violent explosion occurred at Anak Krakatau, blasting away a portion of the southern crater rim. A similar event might have been the final trigger for the catastrophic landslide that let the cone collapse and cause a devastating tsunami on 22 Dec 2018.
