A new Weekly Volcanic Activity Report from the Smithsonian and USGS Global Volcanism Program! Highlights from this week’s report include: Things are getting a little noisy in Colombia. I mentioned a few weeks ago about a possible explosion at Nevado del Ruiz. Now we have reports of increased seismicity under nearby Cerro Machín and ash…

So, I’m a little late with this thanks to a little hiatus, but I thought I would post the latest GVP Weekly Volcanic Activity Report. Thanks again to the Smithsonian, USGS and especially Sally Kuhn Sennert! Some highlights include: There were more ash explosions spotted at Ebeko in Kamchatka, producing ~1.8 km (5,900 foot) ash…

Just a reminder, if you any questions for Sally Kuhn Sennert of the Smithsonian/USGS Global Volcanism Program – about the Weekly Report, about life at the GVP, about volcanoes – be sure to send them to me soon at . Now, on to this week’s update! Some highlights (not including Gorely): Lahars from Tungurahua in…

News! The summit crater lake at Gorely in Russia, taken on June 21, 2010. Image courtesy of KVERT. Eruptions readers have been abuzz about how KVERT will be closing shop (yet again) at the end of June. This would, of course, leave no local monitoring and expertise in the very active Kamchatka Peninsula and Kuril…

The first (courtesy of the Christian Science Monitor) Massive blob of scorching magma discovered under southern Africa Oh my! Yes, again, it seems that the many people in the media seem to be…

A couple pieces of news from two Russian volcanoes on the Kamchatka Peninsula: (1) last week’s report of activity at Gorely appears to be semi-substantiated…

As a certain famous Icelandic native would say, “there is more to life than this.” Some other volcano news from around the world: The situation at Gaua in Vanuatu is worsening. Ash from the current eruption is contaminating water and food supplies on…

Volcanoes from space!

Actually, no the volcanoes aren’t from space, but pictures of the volcanoes were taken from space. The NASA Earth Observatory has posted three more gems of volcanic activity taken by one of the fleet of earth imagers in orbit: A recent image of Chaiten taken by EO-1. Image courtesy of the NASA Earth Observatory. There…

Not a lot of big news, but a lot of little news: Soufriere Hills at night during the late January 2010 dome growth episode. Note the hot rock falls from the collapsing dome. Image courtesy of Photovolcanica. This might not be new, but Dr. Boris Behncke brought the new webcam at the rim of Chaiten…

She can’t connect with the server, so the report can’t be updated on the Smithsonian website … so here it is! Look…
