Thermal signal from Wolf volcano (MIROVA)
The eruption that started 4 weeks ago continues strongly, but from the location of the origin of the thermal signal it seems that since around 13 June, the eruption has been occurring from vents inside the vast summit caldera rather than from the fissure vents that opened on the upper ESE flank on 25 May. ...more

Lava fountains and lava flows from Wolf volcano yesterday evening (Galapagos National Park)
The eruption continues with strong lava fountains from the eruptive fissure and large lava flows advancing southeast. An aerial survey by the National Park staff confirmed that none of the main habitats of the local endemic fauna is threatened. In particular, the Island of Isabela is home to the Galápagos pink land iguana (iguana rosada), native only to the northern part of Isabela Island (around Wolf volcano). ...more

Divergent plate boundaries in oceans
: Two ocean plates move apart from each other. Hot upwelling mantle material forms magmas that continuously produce new oceanic crust. An ocean widens.
Raung volcano photos
: One of the largest and most active volcanoes in East Java, rarely-visited and relatively unknown Raung became (in)famous during its recent eruption in 2015 when its frequent ash plumes forced the repeated closure of Bali's airport.
