Shiveluch (Kamchatka): (16 Jun) Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Tokyo (VAAC) issued the following report: VA AT 20200615/2243Z FL170 EXTD N MOV 15KT REPORTED

Nishino-shima (Volcano Islands, Japan): (16 Jun) The Japan Coast Guard (JCG) did a flight observations yesterday.
An explosions at the volcano generated a dense gray and black ash plumes, which rose approx. 6,561 ft (2,000 m) above the summit. Emissions of ash content is extending about 130 km to the east of the volcano. Blocks were ejected as far as 2,5 km away from the crater.

Dukono (Halmahera): (16 Jun) 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 TO FL070 MOV W OBS AT 16/0410Z to 7000 ft (2100 m)

White Island (New Zealand): (16 Jun) Observations and monitoring data over the last few months indicate that Whakaari/White Island has been progressing on a gradual trend back to lower levels of unrest that are typical of the long-term behaviour of this volcano.
The data sets considered in interpretation include discharge rate of sulphur dioxide (SO2) and carbon dioxide (CO2) gases, seismic activity, and the temperature of the discharging gases around the December 2019 eruption vents. While the temperature of the gas vents remains high, over 450 °C some cooling has been observed over the last few months, indicating a slow decline in heat input from depth. The hot gases that are being emitted from gas vents around the December 2019 eruption vents are still sufficiently hot and are generating a glow that continues as can be seen in the webcam.

Makushin (Aleutian Islands): (16 Jun) The Alaska Volcano Observatory has raised the Alert Level and Aviation Color Code to ADVISORY/YELLOW due to an earthquake swarm that began a few hours ago with a M4.5 shock, soon followed by a M4.1 event. Both have been reported felt in Dutch Harbor/Unalaska.

Popocatépetl (Central Mexico): Explosive activity continues. Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Washington warned about a volcanic ash plume that rose up to estimated 20000 ft (6100 m) altitude or flight level 200 .
The full report is as follows: ONGOING VA EMS. to 20000 ft (6100 m)

Fuego (Guatemala): Explosive activity continues. Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Washington warned about a volcanic ash plume that rose up to estimated 15000 ft (4600 m) altitude or flight level 150 .
The full report is as follows: NEW VA EMS. to 15000 ft (4600 m)

Sangay (Ecuador): (16 Jun) According to IGEPN, the activity at the volcano has been increasing during the past few days associated with increasingly larger ash plumes as can be seen rising from the crater to an altitude of 23,000 ft (7,000 m). An ash plumes is extending about 600 km to the west of the volcano. It produced pyroclastic flows that traveled over the southern slopes and accumulate a material on the flanks of the volcano which can cause formation of lahars. An ash fall could affect a population of Chimborazo, Cañar, Guayas, Azuay, El Oro, Tungurahua and Cotopaxi.
Lava flows on the south-southeast flank remain active. Incandescent avalanches of material continues to be observed.

The full report is as follows: VA CLDS OBS IN STLT IMAGERY to 16000 ft (4900 m)

Sabancaya (Peru): Explosive activity continues. Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Buenos Aires warned about a volcanic ash plume that rose up to estimated 20000 ft (6100 m) altitude or flight level 200 and is moving at 8 kts in S direction.
The full report is as follows: continuous ash emissions to 20000 ft (6100 m)
