The surprise eruption of Indonesia’s Mt. Lokon volcano creates widespread panic
Surtseyan eruption along the coast of Yemen forms a new island – Today eruption cloud + stain
Jorgen Aabech, a Norvegian volcano enthusiast writing already a long time in his blog vulkaner.no, wrote us an email on December 20 to attract our attention on a probably new eruption of the Jebel Zubair volcano, which is an island formation on the territory of Yemen. Jorgen asked us if we had any mention of earthquakes in the area, which was negative.
When looking at the Modis Terra and Aqua satellite picture on December 20, we saw indeed a very small cloud in the island area, but nothing important to us. We also followed the Sat24 weather satellite pictures for a while to eventually detect heat on their Infrared images, but also this was negative. This whole eruption, actually found by the scanning of Jorgen Aalbach (if we are right), was almost forgotten until NASA’s Earth Observatory published a far better satellite picture showing more detail of the eruption. Just like during the Eritrea Nabro eruption, satellite images are the only source in this part of the world (in other words, these countries have other concerns than following an active volcano area all the time).

Sea temperatures around El Hierro much higher than normal – CO2 emissions SEVEN TIMES greater than normal. “With the underwater volcanic eruption in el Hierro continuing I keep a daily eye on its activities,” says reader Hans Schreuder. “I spotted this latest update on the dedicated Canarias 7 newspaper page.” “According to the article, the difference in surface sea temperature around the underwater eruption is now 4.9°C higher than normal, as measured on January 7 this year, and higher than in December last year, when it was 3.0°C higher,” says Hans.

They look like a good start in the quest for the rest. Nice one HL.This is informative. It is written by those with great understanding for those who may just need a refresher course, or a gentle introduction that does not scare people away. That includes me.
