Ground observations saw a 4-5 kilometers / ~2.5-3 mile fissure with new predominantly ‘a’a lava flows that were 2-3 m thick … the fissure was lined…

Your weekly dose of volcanic activity from the USGS/SI. (a little late thanks to an exciting day of column chemistry). Some highlights include: A 3.7 km / 12,000 foot ash plume from Karangetang in Indonesia (great name, eh?) Lava flows, ash plumes and local ash falls from Slamet in Indonesia. White and grey ash plumes…

For those of you looking for real volcanic eruption news (no, there was no “Yellowstone eruption”), here is this week’s SI/USGS Volcano Activity Report. And speaking of April Fools Jokes, this is by far my favorite (mostly by its combination of volcanoes and baseball. How could you go wrong with two of my favorite things…

Just the typical noises expected at an active volcano. In the meantime,…
