The full report is as follows: VA TO FL070 MOV NW OBS AT 30/1810Z OBS VA DTG:30/1850Z to 7000 ft (2100 m)

White Island (New Zealand): Since the last update, minor volcanic unrest continues at /White Island volcano. GNS scientists measured temperatures in the active vent (540°C) and found that these temperatures were lower than the temperatures measured in February (740°C). This is evidence that the active vent is slowly cooling.

Gas measurements of 200-300 tonnes per day of SO2, 20-40 tonnes per day of H2S and 1500-2000 tonnes per day of CO2 per day were regularly recorded since May. These measurements are similar to those measured between eruptive episodes over the last decade according the GeoNet.

There is continued subsidence around the active vent area as well as ongoing subsidence of the main crater wall, south and west of the active vents. In July, the level of volcanic seismic tremor has remained generally low, aside from two short duration bursts of moderate volcanic tremor earlier in the month. Recent rainfall has created small ponds of water on the crater floor. However, these do not appear to be encroaching into hot vent areas.

Popocatépetl (Central Mexico): Explosive activity continues. Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Washington warned about a volcanic ash plume that rose up to estimated 23000 ft (7000 m) altitude or flight level 230 and is moving at 15-20 kts in W direction.
The full report is as follows: CONS VA EMS CONTG. to 23000 ft (7000 m)

Fuego (Guatemala): Explosive activity continues. Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Washington warned about a volcanic ash plume that rose up to estimated 16000 ft (4900 m) altitude or flight level 160 .

Sangay (Ecuador): (30 Jul) Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Washington (VAAC) issued the following report: VA NOT SEEN IN SAT.

Sabancaya (Peru): Explosive activity continues. Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Buenos Aires warned about a volcanic ash plume that rose up to estimated 25000 ft (7600 m) altitude or flight level 250 .
