Summit :  2329 m

Our correspondent on site, (Sylvain Chermette / 80 jours voyage) sends us this photo of Bromo and the following comments:

Bromo is always active. Observations on the site and the seismographs of the Observatory confirm it.
The panache is regular amount to 1000/1500 m depending on moments of the day. It is often clear enough, with phases or the plume is loaded into ashes (several times per hour).

For its part, the GVP announces:

Based on satellite and webcam images, the Darwin VAAC reported that during 6-12 January ash plumes from Tengger Caldera’s Bromo cone rose to an altitude of 3.6 km (12,000 ft) a.s.l. and drifted 30-165 km in multiple directions.


The services of Agriculture in Probolinggo specify to the newspaper Antara news that Bromo ash fall today affect an area of 2604 hectares of crops in the sub-districts of Sukapara, Sumber and Lumbang.
The crops involved are potatoes, cabbage, cereals and tomatoes, and the impact on local agriculture has pushed up vegetable prices.

Nevado De Huila , Colombia :

Subject: A weekly activity of the volcano Nevado del Huila
The level of activity of the volcano continues: LEVEL YELLOW (III): behavioral changes in volcanic activity.

Analysis and evaluation of information obtained by the monitoring network volcano Nevado del Huila, during the week between 13 and 19 January 2016.

The Colombian Geological Service – Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Popayán reports:
During the period evaluated, 318 seismic events were recorded, of which 141 were related to rock fracturing process (type VT), and 177 to the fluid dynamics inside the volcanic conduits. Of these, 161 were classified as long term events (LP), five (5) as hybrid events which have been associated with both the fracturing mechanisms and a fluid transit (type HB) and 11 volcanic tremor pulses of low amplitude (TR).

During the week, it was possible to obtain images from webcams from Tafxnú, Maravillas, Caloto and La Palma, in which the volcanic system degassing process were evident, showing a white steam column.
The technical sensors for monitoring ground deformation, acoustic sensors and magnetic field sensors recording the variations associated with volcanic activity did not record changes.

Therefore, it is concluded that during the evaluation period, the volcano continued to show stable behavior. The level of activity of the Nevado del Huila volcano continues to LEVEL YELLOW (III).
The Colombian Geological Service continues to monitor and report on appropriate changes that may occur.
