La Réunion , Piton de la Fournaise : 

Activity Bulletin from Monday 17 September 2018 at 09:00 (local time)

The eruption that began September 15 at 4:25 am local time continues. The volcanic tremor (indicator of surface eruptive intensity) has been stable and weak since 18:00 on 15 September (14:00 UT).

Figure 1: Evolution of the RSAM (indicator of the volcanic tremor and the intensity of the eruption) between 04:00 (00h UTC) on September 15 and 09:08 (05:08 UTC) September 17 on the seismic station of FOR, located near the Château-fort crater (2000 m altitude to the southeast of the summit).

Fourteen volcano-tectonic earthquakes were recorded beneath the summit craters during the day of September 16th.
– The SO2 emissions recorded by the OVPF’s permanent sensors are much higher than the atmospheric background (related to the volcanic gas plume), and are mostly dispersed west and south since early morning, but are still noticeable at Mountain peak.

Piton de la fournaise éruption du 15.09.2018 Ile de la Reunion

Quelques images de l'éruption du piton de la Fournaise, filmées hier apres midi, une tres belle éruption, une approche assez cahotique et dangereuse entre les dernières coulées des dernières éruptions, mais un spectable chaud 🙂 et grandiose !Some footages of the new eruption of "Piton de la Fournaise" yesterday in Reunion Island. 15Sept 2018

– No deformation is noticeable since the beginning of the eruption.
– The surface flows estimated from satellite data, via the HOTVOLC platform (OPGC – University of Auvergne), are between 2.5 and 5 m3 / s for the start of the day on 17 September.
– During the night, the lava flow continued mainly in the southernmost channel. A visual recognition from Bert’s piton will be made today to try to assess the position of the flow front.

Aleutians Islands, Semisopochnoi:

AVO/USGS Volcanic Activity Notice
Current Volcano Alert Level: ADVISORY
Previous Volcano Alert Level: UNASSIGNED
Current Aviation Color Code: YELLOW
Previous Aviation Color Code: UNASSIGNED
Issued: Sunday, September 16, 2018, 9:56 AM AKDT
Source: Alaska Volcano Observatory
Notice Number:
Location: N 51 deg 55 min E 179 deg 35 min
Elevation: 2625 ft (800 m)
Area: Aleutians

Volcanic Activity Summary:
An increase in seismicity beginning 16:31 UTC (08:31 AKDT) on has prompted AVO to raise the Aviation Color Code and Volcano Alert Level to YELLOW/ADVISORY.
There is no clear indication from satellite imagery or regional infrasound data that Semisopochnoi is erupting at this time. AVO will continue to monitor Semisopochnoi seismic data and evaluate satellite images.

Recent Observations:
[Volcanic cloud height] Unknown
[Other volcanic cloud information] Unknown

Semisopochnoi, the largest subaerial volcano of the western Aleutians, is 20 km wide at sea level and contains an 8-km-wide caldera. It formed as a result of collapse of a low-angle, dominantly basaltic volcano following the eruption of a large volume of dacitic pumice. The high point of the island is 1221-m-high Anvil Peak, a double-peaked late-Pleistocene cone that forms much of the island’s northern part. The three-peaked 774-m-high Mount Cerberus volcano was constructed during the Holocene within the caldera. Each of the peaks contains a summit crater; lava flows on the northern flank of Cerberus appear younger than those on the southern side. Other post-caldera volcanoes include the symmetrical 855-m-high Sugarloaf Peak SSE of the caldera and Lakeshore Cone, a small cinder cone at the edge of Fenner Lake in the NE part of the caldera. Most documented historical eruptions have originated from Cerberus, although Coats (1950) considered that both Sugarloaf and Lakeshore Cone within the caldera could have been active during historical time.

This volcano is located within the Aleutian Islands, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve property.

AVO/USGS Volcanic Activity Notice

Current Volcano Alert Level: WATCH
Previous Volcano Alert Level: ADVISORY

Current Aviation Color Code: ORANGE
Previous Aviation Color Code: YELLOW

Issued: Monday, September 17, 2018, 1:33 PM AKDT
Source: Alaska Volcano Observatory
Notice Number:
Location: N 51 deg 55 min E 179 deg 35 min
Elevation: 2625 ft (800 m)
Area: Aleutians

Volcanic Activity Summary:
Elevated seismicity that started yesterday has intensified over the past couple of hours, and a strong tremor signal at 20:49 UTC (12:49 AKDT) suggests that ash emissions may be occurring or are imminent at Semisopochnoi. Thus we are raising the Aviation Color Code to ORANGE and the Volcano Alert Level to WATCH.

Nothing has been detected in satellite, lightning, or infrasound data.

Recent Observations:
[Volcanic cloud height] Unknown
[Other volcanic cloud information] Unknown

Remarks:
Semisopochnoi is monitored with an on-island seismic network, and remotely by satellite and lightning sensors. An infrasound array on Adak Island could detect explosive emissions from Semisopochnoi with a 13 minute delay if atmospheric conditions permit.

Retrospective analysis of satellite data from September 10 shows evidence of a small ash deposit on the flanks of the north cone of Mount Cerberus, which may have resulted from two minor seismic tremor bursts recorded on September 8. This satellite imagery, combined with a further increase in seismic tremor amplitudes today, prompted AVO to raise the Aviation Color Code and Volcano Alert Level to ORANGE/WATCH. While the recent ash deposit suggests the potential for ash emissions coincident with elevated seismicity, there have been no ash emissions observed in cloudy satellite images around the time of today’s tremor increase. Furthermore, there has been no eruptive activity recorded on regional pressure sensors in Adak, although current atmospheric conditions limit signal propagation between Semisopochnoi and Adak.

Peru , Sabancaya :

An average of 13 EXP / day was recorded. Earthquakes associated with the rise of magma (hybrid types) remain very few and low energy. 
The columns of gas and eruptive ash reached a maximum height of 2500 m above the crater. The dispersion of these materials occurred within a radius of approximately 30 km, mainly in the North, Northeast and Southeast directions. 

The volcanic gas (SO2) flow recorded on September 12 a maximum value of 2060 tons / day, considered as a significant value. 
The deformation of the surface of the volcanic building presented deflationary variations in the vertical component. 
The MIROVA satellite system recorded 7 thermal anomalies, with values between 1 MW and 17 MW VRP (Radiated Volcano Power).

In general, eruptive activity maintains moderate levels. No significant changes are expected in the following days.

Japan , Azumayama :

The meteorological agency has raised the alert level of eruption level 1 to level 2 (regulation around the crater) at 13:00 today on the Azumayama, and indicated that there was the possibility of a small-scale eruption. At the same time, Fukushima Prefecture, Fukushima City and Inawashiro-machi City have decided to close all the lines of the Bandai Azuma Skyline, to close each Jodohei facility and to close all the roads for the time being. surrounding mountaineering.

気象庁は吾妻山で小規模な噴火の可能性があるとして、噴火警戒レベルを1⇒2(火口周辺規制)に本日13時に引き上げ。これに伴い福島県と福島市、猪苗代町は当面の間、磐梯吾妻スカイラインは全線通行止、浄土平各施設は閉鎖、周辺登山道はすべて通行止めを決定し実施しました。吾妻山では、本日(15日)09時13分頃に火山性微動が発生しました。吾妻小富士東観測点(大穴火口の東南東約2km)での最大振幅は6.7マイクロm/s、継続時間は約4分40秒でした。また、浄土平観測点(大穴火口の東南東約1km)に設置している傾斜計では、西北西(大穴火口方向)上がりの傾斜変動が継続しています。今後、小規模な噴火が発生する可能性があります。大穴火口から概ね1.5kmの範囲では、噴火に伴う弾道を描いて飛散する大きな噴石に警戒してください。動画は本日12時ころの一切経山(吾妻山)

On Azumayama, an earthquake occurred around 9:13 am today (Sept. 15). The maximum amplitude was 6.7 micro m / s at the eastern observation point of Azuma Fuji (about 2 km east-southeast of the crater) and lasted about 4 minutes and 40 seconds. In addition, on the inclinometer installed at the observation point of the Jodo Plain (about 1 km east-southeast of the crater), the fluctuation of the slope continues to increase in the west direction (direction of the crater). ). It is possible that a small eruption will occur in the future.

The animation of Azumayama is dated September 15th around noon.
