Shiveluch (Kamchatka): Explosive activity continues. Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Tokyo warned about a volcanic ash plume that rose up to estimated 12000 ft (3700 m) altitude or flight level 120 and is moving at 10 kts in NW direction.
The full report is as follows: VA EMISSIONS CONTINUING OBS VA DTG:23/1720Z to 12000 ft (3700 m)
...23 Jan:
According to our local friend and volcanologist Yuri Demyanchuk, the extrusive activity at the volcano appears to decrease significantly.
Nevertheless, the frequent vivid glow in the upper part of the growing lava dome continues and hints intruding viscous magma into it. Extraordinary small glowing lava blocks and debris avalanches travelled over the slopes during the past few days.
Emissions of gas, steam plumes and ash reached heights between 13,000 ft (4,000 m) and 16,000 ft (4,900 m) over the past few days detected by the Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Tokyo.

Krakatau (Sunda Strait, Indonesia): (23 Jan) The intermittent explosive and near-constant degassing activity from the cinder cone continues.
Four eruptions appeared at the volcano today so far in a 1.5-hour time range of between 08:00 and 09:30 local time, of which two events seemed to be quite powerful, judging from the PVMBG surveillance cameras.
