Eruptive activity continues on Nishinoshima, with thermal anomalies noted by Mirova, and reaching 425 MW on February 2 at 3:50 a.m.
Regular GSI reports show the topographic changes caused by lava flows from the northeast to the east of the island between January 17 and 31 (images Alos-2 raw data of JAXA)

The explosive eruptive activity does not weaken either on the Sakurajima, on Kyushu, interspersed with ash emissions.
Ash falls are reported on the east of the volcano on February 2 and 3.

Sakurajima 02.02.2020 / 00:01 JST (loading can take a few seconds) - Doc. Volcano Time-Lapse - N.B.: At 1min13, the eruption is bathed in a "green light". the author has no idea what is causing this (unless it is related to the lasers they have around the volcano?) It is not a natural phenomenon.
After the phreatic eruption at Rincon de La Vieja on January 30, 2020, an overflight of the volcano was carried out by the volcanological section of the RSN in coordination with the Air Security of the Public Force.
Despite the high cloudiness, the presence of materials ejected during the eruption could be observed ... in the event of rain, the mobilization of these materials can generate secondary lahars in the vicinity of the Penjamo rios, and the Quebradas Azufrada and Zanjonuda .

Continuous seismic activity is measured near Grindavík, on the Reykjanes Peninsula. Since midnight on February 2, about 150 earthquakes have been detected, the strongest of magnitude 3.3 at 9:00 a.m.
Since January 21, more than 1,000 earthquakes have been located in the region, including about 700 during the weekend and most were located in the SW / NE direction, about 2 km from Grindavík.
The latest GPS analysis shows inflation in the area west of Thorbjörn. In total, the land has risen more than 4 cm since January 20. Satellite images show the same evolution.
The IMO specifies that everything could end without the emission of external lava.
