After ash emissions since March 1, the explosive eruption of Shinmoedake March 6 around 14:30 sent a plume of ash and gas to more than 3,000 meters.

Lava was emitted into the crater, and besides the projections, an effusion generated a galette dome, which covered the 2011 dome and is visible on the images taken by helicopter and satellites.
