Augustine volcano, Alaska: eruption update
The eruption at Augustine volcano has clamed down a bit, but continues with occasional ash eruptions, some of which produce small pyroclastic flows that travel down down Augustine's flanks. The highest ash plumes reached about 5 km a.s.l. (15,000 ft) a.s.l. AVO warns that further explosive activity producing ash clouds to heights over 7.6 km (25,000 ft) may still occur with little or no warning. Augustine remained at Concern Color Code Orange.

Tom and Marco are just back home from our pilot tour to Nyiragongo volcano, which was very successful, so we plan to repeat the tour in July this year already. In the near future, we will post photos from the tour as well as details about the tour. Stay tuned!

The tours this year on Santorini are now over, too, with lots of fun and great company as well. Thanks to all participants! [more]
Before we send out our formal newsletter, when the programs for 2006 are completed, a quick notice to announce that Tom will offer a new, 12-days tour / expedition to the Rift Valley including Lengai volcano in Feb. and summer 2006, Costa Rica in late March and (probably) July 2006. As well, Tobias (who is right now touring in the Saronic Gulf) awaits with a new, exciting program on Milos, a wonderful, volcanic island in Greece! Other new or recently developped programs include Nisyros (Greece) and the Eifel region in Germany (details will come soon).
Greetings from Athens! Tom
