An eruption occurred at 6:09 am on April 29 at the Iodake crater of Satsuma Iō-jima (30 ° 47 ′ 27 ″ N, 130 ° 17 ′ 46 ″ E). It continued until 6:50 a.m. The height of the gas and ash plume is 1000 meters above the edge of the crater. The ashes should fall to the north of the crater.

The last eruption occurred on Satsuma Iō-jima in November 2019.

The inclinometer data near Mount Iodake did not show any significant change due to volcanic activity.

Therefore, it is unlikely that a large-scale eruption will occur at this time.

Currently, Satsuma Iō-jima is at eruption alert level 2 (regulation around the crater).

Kikai is a 19 km wide submerged caldera located near the northern tip of the Ryukyu Islands, south of Kyushu. It was the source of one of the largest Holocene eruptions in the world around 6,300 years ago, when pyroclastic rhyolitic flows crossed the sea for a total distance of 100 km to the south of Kyushu , and ash falls reached the island of Hokkaido, in the north of Japan.

Post-caldera eruptions formed the Iodake lava dome and the Inamuradake slag cone, as well as underwater lava domes. Historical eruptions have occurred at or near Satsuma-Iojima (also known as Tokara-Iojima), a small 3 x 6 km island that forms part of the northwest edge of the caldera.

A moderate eruptive activity continues at Ebeko volcano, in the Kuril Islands.

On April 28, a stronger explosion occurred, observed from Severo-Kurilsk by Leonid Kotenko from the local volcanic observatory. This Vulcanian explosion produced a plume of ash rising 2,000 meters above the volcano, then drifting to the southeast. VAAC Tokyo has estimated the height of the plume at 3,600 meters asl., corresponding.

On April 30, the KVERT reports an explosion accompanied by an ash plume at 2,000 meters asl. , drifting east from the volcano.

Aviation code remains orange, with the continuation of this activity which may affect low-level flights and Severo-Kurilsk airport

In the past 24 hours, using the Popocatépetl volcano monitoring system, 52 exhalations have been identified, accompanied by water vapor, gas and slight amounts of ash dispersed towards the southeast sector (SE) .

Similarly, 908 minutes of tremor of low and medium amplitude were recorded.

At the time of this report, there is a partial visibility, however in the morning a constant emission was observed in the southeast direction.

 

Cenapred urges NOT to get close to the volcano and especially the crater, because of the danger involved in the fall of ballistic fragments and, in the event of heavy rain, to move away from the bottom of the ravines because of the danger of mud and rubble.

The Popocatépetl volcanic alert remains at Amarillo Fase 2.

In Guatemala, the Pacaya has shown significant seismicity since April 27 during the night, recorded by the PCG and PCG 5 stations. It was caused by the opening of a crack on the northeast flank of the volcano , according to Insivumeh; it emanates only gases.

A lava flow extends to the southwest, and has extended for 400 meters from the MacKenney crater. Simultaneously, Strombolian explosions are accompanied by incandescent ejections a hundred meters high.

The ban on climbing for guides and tourists is recalled by the Government of Guatemala.

The Steamboat Geyser, in the Norris basin at Yellowstone N.P., erupted in water on April 27 from 4:29 p.m. to 4:39 p.m. It is the third eruption for the month of April 2020 and the twelfth manifestation in the course of this beginning of the year.

It seems that this geyser is in a phase of more frequent watery eruptions, as it had in the 60s and early 80s. But this time, because of the Covid-19, its activity did not have spectators.

These eruptions have no implications for future volcanic activity at Yellowstone, but are part of normal geyser activity, even if it is erratic.

Sabancaya - summary of the activity between 20 and 26 April 2020 - Doc. I.G.Peru

The Peruvian Geophysical Institute (IGP) reports that the eruptive activity of the Sabancaya volcano remains at moderate levels; that is to say with the continuous record of explosions with columns up to 2 km high above the summit of the volcano and the consequent emission of ash and gas. Consequently, for the following days, no significant change is expected regarding its activity.

Between 20 and 26 April 2020, the IGP recorded and analyzed the occurrence of around 297 earthquakes of volcanic origin, associated with the circulation of fluids (magma, gas, etc.) inside the volcano.

On average, 9 daily explosions of low to medium intensity were recorded. Plumes of gas and ash up to 2 km high above the summit of the volcano could be observed, scattered towards the southwest, south and southeast sectors of the Sabancaya.

Between April 21 and 25, major earthquakes were recorded in the Colca Valley region, with magnitudes between M3.2 and M4.1, associated with tectonic and volcanic activity; The epicenters of these earthquakes are located within a radius of 20 km around the crater of the volcano.

The monitoring of the deformation of the volcanic structure, using GNSS data (processed with fast orbits), does not present any significant anomalies; However, the presence of slight inflation in the area of ​​the northern Sabancaya volcano (near the Hualca Hualca volcano) has been observed.

Satellite surveillance has enabled the presence of 8 thermal anomalies with values ​​between 3 MW and 15 MW, associated with the presence of a body of lava (dome) on the surface of the crater of the volcano.

The volcanic alert level remains orange, with an exclusion zone of 12 km radius around the crater.

During the night, from 03.51 h 26.04.2020, a seismic swarm took place in the area of ​​the Phlegraean Fields of the Solfatara-Pisciarelli, consisting of a sequence of 34 tremors of magnitude between 0.0 and 3.1 , and with hypocentres between 1 and 2 km. The earthquakes were felt in the Pozzuoli region.

The seismologists of the Vesuvius Observatory (Naples Section of the INGV), who analyzed the events, did not detect any anomalies regarding the current development of the current bradisismic crisis. It is recalled that the appearance of seismic swarms normally occurs during a period characterized by bradisismic activity, such as that underway in the Phlegrean Fields since 2005. There are elements of novelty in the progression of the current phenomenon . The geochemicals of the Vesuvius Observatory are at work to carry out surveys on the fumaroles of the Solfatara-Pisciarelli area, and report that there have been no new mouths opened.

A total of 18 people, including 13 guards and drivers from Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of the Congo were killed on Friday April 24 in an ambush by militiamen. It is the deadliest attack in recent years in this sensitive region of Upper Kivu.

We must remember the ambush of April 2014, in which Emmanuel de Merode, National Park curator, anthropologist and Belgian primatologist was seriously injured. Inaugurated in 1925, the park has since suffered repeated attacks by rebel groups, militiamen and poachers.

The degassing (puffing) activity, mainly located in the C / SW sector of the crater terrace, was maintained between medium and low values ​​(max 60 mbar).
The signal associated with the earthquake shows a stable trend on the average values.
The SO2 and CO2 fluxes measured during the last week show values ​​that range from medium to low; while the C / S ratio remains stable at low values.
MODIS satellite thermal anomalies detected low to moderate heat flux values ​​(maximum of 26 MW on April 19), in agreement with the explosive activity recorded by the other parameters.
Analysis of the seismic signals associated with landslide activities recorded during the past week has highlighted a series of material rolling events along the Sciara del Fuoco.

The seismic network at 15:02:19 h 22/04/2020 recorded a volcanic earthquake (VT) of magnitude 2.2. This event was also recorded on the average hydrophone from Punta Labronzo placed 14 m deep. The seismic event is probably located at a depth of 2.5 km inside the volcanic structure.

The global analysis of geophysical and geochemical parameters shows during the week a constant level of volcanic activity on average values.

For the Merapi, on Java, the weekly report of the BPPTKG from April 17 to 23 indicates a currently stable dome.

The potential danger remains in the form of hot clouds from the collapse of the lava dome and bursts of volcanic material due to explosive eruptions. ⁣

 

The seismicity of April 23 is characterized by 2 avalanche earthquakes, 2 blast earthquakes and 8 hybrid earthquakes.

The latter remain present, although decreasing in number, over the past week.

Gas emissions are noted at a height of 50 meters above the summit.

The activity level remains at 2 / waspada, with a prohibited area of ​​3 km radius around the crater.

Activity of the past week at Mauna Loa, in volcanic alert level Advisory and aviaition code Yellow.

The volcano is not erupting.

Over the past week, HVO seismometers have recorded 78 small-scale earthquakes on the summit of the volcano and its elevation flanks. Most of these earthquakes occurred at shallow depths less than 8 km (~ 5 miles) below ground level. The largest earthquake was magnitude 2.3 under the southern caldera.

Global positioning system (GPS) measurements show continued slow top inflation, consistent with magma supply from the volcano's shallow storage system.

Insimumeh recorded on the night of April 18 on the seismic and acoustic network of Fuego a change in the type of activity. Climatic conditions made it impossible to visualize the lava flow, but analysis of satellite images helped to obtain its characteristics.

The flow to Barranca Ceniza on April 19 was approximately 320 meters long. The activity was accompanied by almost constant incandescence at the crater and avalanches over 1 km, reaching the level of vegetation.

It is reminded not to stay in the barrancas around the volcano, this activity can intensify.

Mirova recorded thermal anomalies between 19 and 185 MW from the 17th and the 20.04. It should be considered that the thermal anomalies can be masked or attenuated by the cloud cover.

Also delayed following the eruptive episode of Etna ...

In Costa Rica, a hydrothermal eruption occurred this April 19 at 10:14 am local to Rincon de La Vieja, and produced a vapor column at 1,500 meters above the crater. It lasted about a minute.

The expelled materials, solid and liquid, reached a height of about 300 meters above the crater, and produced a lahar on the north face, which did not affect the populations around the volcano.

The Ovsicori reports several small eruptions of the same type in the past hours (including one at 5.30 am), which however did not exceed the edge of the crater.

The activity generated the emission of an ash plume which was quite weak at the beginning and which gradually increased in intensity from 08:45 UTC, reaching around 5,000 meters in height. The ashes fell on the eastern side of the volcano for the most part in the Bove Valley and fallout of fine materials were also reported on the city of Zafferana.

The aviation code changed from orange to red at 7:24 am UTC.

From 09:55 UTC, the lava fountain activity gradually diminished until it stopped.

Finally, it is reported that strombolian activity at the crater of La Voragine, which started in September 2019. continues with slight fluctuations compared to what has been communicated so far.

From a seismic point of view, after a significant drop in the tremor, the eruptive episode was announced by a rapid increase in the volcanic tremor from 5.40 hours GMT - 7.40 local hours, which reached the highest energy level at 7.00 hours GMT (9.00 local time). The sources of the signal are located in the area of ​​the New Southeast Crater at shallow depth.

The episode was accompanied by remarkable infrasound activity, which is also decreasing.

The INGV announces at 23:55 (21:55 UTC), the return of parameters to normal activity.
