Aso (Kyushu): The volcano is active from 2 vents in the Nakadake crater. During the night, sometime strong incandescence, suggesting possible weak (strombolian-type) ejections of lava, steaming and minor ash venting are visible.


Sinabung (Sumatra, Indonesia): After a few days of deceiving calm, the eruption of the volcano intensified again today and produced the so-far largest pyroclastic flows, reaching probably more than 5-6 km in length, and associated ash plumes that rose to approx. 25,000 ft (8 km) altitude:

Dukono (Halmahera): More explosions occurred today at the volcano. Ash plumes were reported at 10,000 ft (3 km) altitude extending up to 60 nautical miles to the NE.

Pacaya (Guatemala): The volcano continues to effuse a weakly alimented lava flow from the southern fissure and has mild strombolian activity at the summit crater, with explosions occurring about every 2 minutes and ejections reaching 25-70 m above the crater.

Fuego (Guatemala): Activity continues at moderate levels as during the past days. INSIVUMEH counted 13 moderate explosions with shock waves and ash plumes rising 300-800 m. The lava flow on the upper southern slope towards the Trinidad drainage was 300 m long this morning.

Shiveluch (Kamchatka): The volcano continues to erupt viscous lava and has frequent small to medium-sized explosions. This morning, it produced again an ash plume that rose to estimated 27,000 ft (8.1 km) altitude that drifted WSW, Tokyo VAAC alerted the aviation community. ... [more]
Etna this morning
Sunday, Jan 12, 2014
Etna (Sicily, Italy): No significant changes have occurred. While the continuing unusually warm weather has stripped much of the snow on Etna's southern side, diffuse weak ash emissions are visible from the NE crater and tremor fluctuates at low levels. ... [more]

Etna (Sicily, Italy): Activity remains unchanged. The Northeast crater produces a weak ash plume currently drifting east. Tremor levels are fluctuating, but generally low. ... [more]

Etna (Sicily, Italy): Activity and tremor have decreased for now, but weak ash emissions continue to be observed from the NE crater. ... [more]
Ash emission from Etna's NE crater this morning
Thursday, Jan 09, 2014
Etna (Sicily, Italy): The activity of the volcano has remained similar to the previous days: so far, relatively weak but more or less steady ash emissions are occurring at the North-East crater, and tremor continues its slow rise. Whether this is a precursor to more vigorous activity (from the New SE crater?) remains to be seen probably in the coming days. ... [more]
