A new Weekly Volcano Report from the Smithsonian GVP/USGS … enjoy! Highlights include: There has been a number of reports of new activity at Llaima in Chile (hat tip to Eruptions reader Manuel Humeres for bringing them to us). Most of the current activity is steam-and-gas plumes along with long-period seismicity, suggesting we could be…

We get a new update from the Smithsonian/USGS Global Volcanism Program … Highlights (not counting Soufriere Hills or Gaua) include: The Weekly Report mentions the mystery eruption/noneruption of Karkar in PNG.

Back to work after Thanksgiving Break … lets clean up a few news items I missed trying to figure out the non-eruption of Karkar. Undated photo of the summit area of Gaua, Vanuatu.

I’ll be giving a talk this afternoon here at Denison on rhyolite generation, so I might be a little brief this morning. Undated image of Mayon in the Philippines. The province of Albay in the Philippines is on alert for both a typhoon and a volcano (that country seems to be hit with that

Before we get to the latest SI/USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report (WVAR), I wanted to draw your attention to some nifty NASA Earth Observatory images from the current activity at Soufriere Hills in Montserrat. After a few puffs last week, the volcano is now releasing a relatively constant stream of ash and steam, this after…

A pile of new volcano images

Sometimes it is hard to keep up with the mountain of remote sensing (or not so remote) images that get released on the internet. Over the last few days, the NASA Earth Observatory has released a bunch of images/videos of current eruptions, so I thought I’d round them all up here for you to peruse.…

Two volcanoes that have been rumbling and rocking for a while now made some noise today: Kliuchevskoi Volcano in Russia. Soufriere Hills on Montserrat had a relatively impressive explosive event, producing a ~3 km / ~11,000 foot ash plume – its first eruption in 10 months. This was after a sharp increase in seismicity at…
