Map of today's active volcanoes
Shiveluch (Kamchatka): The effusive and explosive activity at the volcano continue at currently relatively low levels. Occasional small avalanches occur from the active dome, but little or no glow can be seen on night-time webcam imagery, suggesting that the effusion rate is at the lower end at the moment. ...more [read all]

Map of today's active volcanoes
Kliuchevskoi (Kamchatka): The volcano continues to erupt a lava flow that descends on the eastern flank. It also sometimes (such as during much of yesterday) has phases of near-continuous explosions at the summit craters, generating ash plumes that rise up to approx. 1 km from the summit. Today, no significant ash emissions were observed. ...more [read all]

Map of today's active volcanoes
Etna (Sicily, Italy): The volcano remains calm at the surface but is restless. Its internal seismic activity continues to be higher than normal and SO2 gas emissions have increased a bit recently (to approx. 7,000 tons/day), which could indicate the influx of fresh magma. ...more [read all]

Map of today's active volcanoes
Kilauea (Hawai'i): The so-called "61G lava flow" southeast from Pu'u 'O'o extending into the coastal flat remains active, but most activity in the past days continued to enlarge and inflate the existing lava flow field. ...more [read all]
