Eruptions

Your weekly dose of volcano news brought you by the Smithsonian Institute GVP and the USGS.

This week’s highlights (not counting Sarychev Peak and Turrialba) include:

  • 13,000 foot / 4 km ash plumes from Rinjani in Indonesia. This is part of the continuing eruption there.
  • The alert level was lowered at Galeras, Colombia to “Orange” after intense eruptions last week.
  • The current lava dome at Redoubt is 1 km long, 460 m wide, and 200 m high according to the latest images from the Alaskan volcano.
  • 18,000-23,000 foot / 4.8-7.7 km ash plumes from Shiveluch in Kamchatka, along with thermal anomalies over the lava dome, suggesting new magma at the surface.
  • More ash emitted from Ubinas in Peru, reaching 26,000 feet / 7.9 km.

    After several days of clouds at Mt Redoubt, the weather there looks to be clearing. Fingers crossed we can see how much it has grown in the since the lastest report.

    The last time the whole dome at once has been in view was June 9th.

    I came across some photos submitted by an unidentified person who posted photos of ash and debris floating in the Caribbean ( looked like pomice stone) and a plume of mud rising from a newly formed island in the Swan Island area after the Honduras area earthquake on May 28, 2009. This is what the author of e-mail claims. What is officially know about this?

    Marcos: If you could locate a link for these photos it would be interesting. Open to correction, but I would have thought that a volcanic connection was VERY unlikely off the Caribbean coast of Central America, the volcanic chain is down the western (Pacific) coast

    Seems to be a geologist and an expert on Honduras and may be there now according to his blog. But nothing about volcanic debris
