Map of today's active volcanoes
Manam (Papua New Guinea)
Landsat 8 image of Manam volcano from 6 June this year (image: NASA; annotations: Culture Volcan)
: Mild eruptive activity likely continues at the volcano. Satellite images show a thermal hot spot at the summit crater and occasionally, during clear weather, strong emissions of sulfur dioxide gas.
Due to the lack of current field observations, no detailed information about the nature of the activity (if any) is currently available. The most likely situation is that there are mild strombolian eruptions and/or a growing lava dome at the summit crater. Manam is one of the region's most active volcano.
Etna (Sicily, Italy)
: Etna has remained calm at the surface since the most recent eruptive phase (violent strombolian activity from the NE and Voragine summit craters) ended on 26 May. ... read all
: Ash emissions have increased at the volcano. The local observatory reported a plume of approx. 800 m rising from the summit vent and drifting west this morning. ... read all
: The effusion of a lava flow on the southeastern flank of the volcano continues with little changes. A second flow branch has recently made its appearance. ... read all
Sakurajima (Kyushu, Japan)
: The volcano has been very calm recently. After 2 weeks with no recorded explosions, a few relatively small ones occurred yesterday and today, producing ash plumes that rose to 7-8,000 ft (2-2.5 km) altitude. ... read all
