Ash plume rising from Veniaminof earlier today (Perryville webcam, FAA)
Veniaminof (Alaska Peninsula, USA): A strong eruptive phase (paroxysm) with lava fountains and associated ash emissions reaching 15-20,000 ft (4.5-6 km) altitude occurred yesterday. ...more [read all]

Location of quakes during the past 2 weeks (IGN)
El Hierro (Canary Islands, Spain): Small earthquakes (mostly below magnitude 2) continue to occur frequently (10-20 per day), mostly under the central part of the island. Right now, this activity seems to be picking up, but it is too early to see if this evolves into another swarm. ...more [read all]

Klyu seen from the KVERT observatory this morning; the lava flow is indicated by the white plume rising on the right side of the upper flank
Kliuchevskoi (Kamchatka): A small lava flow has started to descend on the upper northern flank of the volcano. Sometimes intense strombolian continues at the summit vent. Glowing blocks from the lava flow often detach from the front and roll down the steep slope of the volcano. No significant ash emissions have occurred so far. ...more [read all]

MODIS hot spot data (past 7 days) for Tavurvur volcano (ModVolc, Univ. Hawaii)
Monte Albano (Italy): What appears to be a new fumarole appeared near Rome's International Fiumicino airport Saturday morning. A vent producing small geyser-like fountains of steam, water and mud suddenly opened in the ground near a road crossing near Fiumicino. ...more [read all]

MODIS hot spot data (past 7 days) for Sakurajima volcano (ModVolc, Univ. Hawaii)
Sakurajima (Kyushu, Japan): On 21 August, the volcano had at least 8 (!) vulcanian-type explosions with ash plumes rising up to 15,000 ft (4,5 km) altitude that often drifted over the bay and Kagoshima city, causing ash fall there. Some of the explosions can be seen on the following time-lapse video. The volcano has been in an elevated state of activity during the past weeks. A significant hot spot is visible on MODIS data, suggesting that magma levels are high in the crater and the presence of significant amounts of still hot fresh deposits on the flanks. ...more [read all]

Glowing rock avalanche from Kizimen last night
Kizimen (Kamchatka): The lava dome continues to grow at the top of the volcano and produce incandescent rockfalls and small pyroclastic flows, generating ash plumes. A new prominent spine is being extruded at the top and visible on the webcam. The following time-lapse movies show this activity during the day and night: ...more [read all]

Phreatic explosion at White Island this morning (GeoNet webcam)
Iliwerung (Lesser Sunda Islands): A submarine eruption has likely occurred this morning in Indonesia. VSI raised the alert level of Iliwerung volcano from 1 (normal) to 2 (watch) following increased seismic and visual activity from an underwater flank vent called Gunung Hobal. ...more [read all]

View of Popocatépetl this morning
Sakurajima (Kyushu, Japan): A very large vulcanian explosion, one of the largest during this year occurred yesterday morning. It produced a mushroom shaped ash column that rose to about 20,000 ft (6 km) altitude that drifted over the Kagoshima town where ash fall occurred. ...more [read all]

Aerial photo of the NE rim of the Kverkjökull glacier with deposits of the flood and ash from the phreatic explosion (
Kverkfjöll (Eastern Iceland): A small phreatic eruption seems to have taken place yesterday at the ice-covered Kverkfjoell central volcano. The steam-driven (no fresh magma involved) explosion followed a small glacial flood on 15 August the Kverkjökull glacier released into the Volga river and was probably a result of the pressure release during the flood. ...more [read all]

MODIS hot spot at Veniaminof volcano (past 7 days, Univ. Hawai'i)
Karymsky (Kamchatka): An explosion probably occurred last night (inferred from seismic data), and might have produced an ash plume of up to 20,000 ft (7.5 km) elevation, Tokyo VAAC reported. ...more [read all]
