2015 December (part 2)

17 December – 20 December 2015

Updated: 20 December 11:15 local time.

17 December

Activity of the Volcano

Activity has increased today. Indonesian Volcanology Survey  (PVMBG) noted a increase in Volcanic tremor yesterday, and also today with the addition in increase in shallow volcanic earthquakes. Ash emissions seem to be more ash rich today, and the output from the volcano seem to also have increased in intensity. In the evening lava-glow was observed, most likely caused by super-heated gas/ash from the eruption. No lava bombs etc. observed.

18 December

Activity of the Volcano

Activity seem to have dropped a bit today. The height of the plume and less ash. The Indonesian Volcanology Survey  (PVMBG) supposedly, according to media sources, also noticed a decline in the tremor levels today. However as the photos below show, there were periods with more intense activity today too.
