Etna (Sicily, Italy): The first significant eruption of Etna in 2017 ended during last night. What could be called a "subdued" paroxysm from the New SE crater consisted of near-continuous strong strombolian bursts from the saddle vent at the SE crater complex with the effusion of a lava flow that spread at the southern feet of the cone.
After having lasted approx. 48 hours, the intense explosive-effusive activity began to weaken quickly after 22:00 local time yesterday evening and ceased at around 23:30.

Klyuchevskoy (Kamchatka): Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Tokyo (VAAC) issued the following report: VA CONTINUOUSLY OBS ON SATELLITE IMAGERY OBS VA DTG:02/1720Z
...2 Mar:
The activity of the volcano has again increased into a new eruptive phase. KVERT raised the Aviation Color Code to orange.
After more than a month of relative calm, with only degassing and sporadic weak ash emissions, the volcano began a more sustained phase of strombolian activity shortly after midnight (local time) between yesterday and today (1-2 March). So far, this activity has been accompanied by mild to moderate ash emissions, but no lava flow (as typical for most eruptions at the volcano). This could change quickly if the effusion rate increases.
The most recent eruptive phase from Klyuchevskoy took place between April-November last year and was characterized by both lava flows and mild to moderate explosive activity at the summit, at fluctuating intensity. It was followed by a period with sporadic weak ash emissions followed during December and January, showing that the activity at the volcano never really stopped completely.

Pacaya (Guatemala): Activity at the volcano has not changed significantly. The lava flow at the volcano's upper NE flank towards Cerro Chino remains active. This morning, it was approx. 150 m long.
The volcano observatory reported continuous spattering from the main vent in the summit crater with ejections reaching 10-15 m height. Seismic observations suggest that magma is continuously rising towards the surface through the main conduit.
