Ambrym (Vanuatu): No eruptive activity has been observed for 3 months, meaning the long-term eruption which began in 2008 has come to an end.

Following the brief fissure eruption in December, magma drained into the volcano's rift zone producing ground cracking at the coast. This also emptied all of the lava lakes and ponds at the summit.

These events are remarkably similar to those at Kilauea last year.
