The activity continues on Etna, where Boris Behncke reports two active craters this August 10 evening. The Bocca Nuova and the northeast crater are the seat of moderate but noisy Strombolian activity.
At two days intervals, the summits have changing faces, recalling that Etna is not only a very active volcano, but also a high mountain with a climate that is subject to rapid changes.
On August 9, the summits are bleached by hail brought by a storm which lasted about twenty minutes.
On August 10th, the flight shows a clear summit, with three weakly degassing craters.

In Kilauea, the activity is marginal, with a small lava pond covered with a crust deep in the cone on fissure 8, about 40 meters below the highest point of the cone.
On channeled casting, no sign of reactivation is noticed.
The fissures mentioned yesterday continue to degas, without showing incandescence.
At the entrance to the sea, the lava oozes at various points between Kapoho Bay and Ahalanui, generating small plumes of laze.
Sulfur dioxide emissions remain at a low level, considered the lowest of the decade. These emissions remain detectable by the populations of the south-east of the island, under the emanations of SO2 and H2S.
At the top, deflation is negligible, and the last collapse dates back to August 2nd.

Several images of the cone and the upper part of the casting of the fissure 8 were made this Tuesday by a camera VIRB mounted on wingtip; Then, a data processing allowed to create a model of elevation 3D (DEM), realized by a team of Civil Air Patrol, composed of Jason Dzurisin, Jason Ozbolt, Paul Hirst and Carol Murray.

Ebeko volcano, in the northern Kuriles, is pursuing an explosive activity, marked by moderate explosions this August 10, and a cloud of ash, of 11 by 14 km, drifting at 2,000-2,500 meters over 26 km towards ESE.
