Shiveluch (Kamchatka): (12 Mar) 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 25 kts in SE direction.
The full report is as follows: POSS ERUPTION OBS AT 20190312/0100Z FL120 EXTD SE OBS VA DTG:12/0150Z to 12000 ft (3700 m)

Aso (central Kyushu, Japan): JMA has raised the alert level to 2 on a scale of 1-5 after an increase in gas emissions in February and now increasing seismicity. This is the first significant activity since the powerful explosion in October 2016.

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.
