Activity levels at Semeru have picked up pace the last month. During a visit on 27-28th August I observed a contant crater glow caused by incandescent material in the crater, small strombolian activity and rockfall from the crater-area/lava dome. Booming noises could be heard during the strombolian activity, often accompanied by the sound of rockfall. MODIS thermal monitoring of global hot-spots system, also show recurring hotspots in the crater area, as well as the southern flank before, during and after the time of my observations at Semeru.
