Klyuchevskoy (Kamchatka): (25 Mar) Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Tokyo (VAAC) issued the following report: ERUPTION AT 20200325/2113Z FL230 EXTD N-NE REPORTED

Aso (central Kyushu, Japan): (26 Mar) Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Tokyo (VAAC) issued the following report: ACTIVITY CONT. VA AT 20200326/0000Z FL050 EXTD N OBS VA DTG:25/2340Z

Manam (Papua New Guinea): (26 Mar) On 20 March Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Darwin recorded an explosion at the volcano that generated an ash plume, which reached approx. 10,000 ft (3,000 m) altitude and drifted E.

Ibu (Halmahera, Indonesia): Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Darwin (VAAC) issued the following report: LOW LEVEL ERUPTION TO FL062 MOV W OBS VA DTG:26/0923Z

Dukono (Halmahera): (26 Mar) Explosive activity continues. Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Darwin warned about a volcanic ash plume that rose up to estimated 7000 ft (2100 m) altitude or flight level 070 .
The full report is as follows: CONTINUOUS VA EMISSION TO FL070 OBS VA DTG:26/0630Z to 7000 ft (2100 m)

Shishaldin (Aleutian Islands, Alaska): (26 Mar) The Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) reported that seismicity remains elevated with continuous low-level tremor. Satellite and web camera views were mostly obscured by clouds over the past 24 hours, but one relatively clear image showed a small gas plume emanating from the summit of the volcano. Eruptive activity appears confined to the summit area during this most recent period of unrest, which started mid-March. Activity could increase with little or no warning, however, resulting in lava flows and lahars outside of the crater and (or) ash emissions.
