Bromo is always active. Observations on the site and the seismographs of the Observatory confirm it.
The panache is regular amount to 1000/1500 m depending on moments of the day. It is often clear enough, with phases or the plume is loaded into ashes (several times per hour).
For its part, the GVP announces:
Based on satellite and webcam images, the Darwin VAAC reported that during 6-12 January ash plumes from Tengger Caldera’s Bromo cone rose to an altitude of 3.6 km (12,000 ft) a.s.l. and drifted 30-165 km in multiple directions.
The services of Agriculture in Probolinggo specify to the newspaper Antara news that Bromo ash fall today affect an area of 2604 hectares of crops in the sub-districts of Sukapara, Sumber and Lumbang.
The crops involved are potatoes, cabbage, cereals and tomatoes, and the impact on local agriculture has pushed up vegetable prices.
