Type of activity observed: Gas/sulphur emission were modestly active from 2 vents, one of them – the kawah baru (new crater) had a pulsing emission reaching around 100-150m. This crater also contains a lake which now has a green color. Several other small fumarolic vents are also active within the papandayan volcano.
