The eruption continues. Ash emissions have decreased, while satellite-detected heat emission increased during the past days.
This could suggest that activity is now more effusive (lava flows) than explosive (ash emissions) in style. This morning, an ash plume rose approx. 1 km above the volcano and drifted 100 km to the SW. Indonesia’s Volcanological Survey VSI mentioned yesterday that seismic activity rapidly decreased.
Whether this means a near ending of the eruption remains to be seen.
