Sangeang Api volcano (Sunda Islands, Indonesia): eruption continues, ash spreads to Australia
Volcano Discovery ^ | May 31, 2014 | T

Posted on 05/31/2014 6:30:16 AM PDT by Excellence

Eruptions continue at the volcano after yesterday's major explosion. Dense ash plumes rising from the summit crater can be seen on this morning's satellite images, and a MODIS hot spot is visible on the latest satellite data, suggesting fresh magma continues to arrive at the volcano's summit crater. In the meanwhile, the ash and SO2 plume has drifted and spread over more than 3000 km to the E and SE, covering a vast area that includes parts of northern and eastern Australia.

KEYWORDS: co2; globalwarming; indonesia; volcanism; volcano; volcanoes
Among other details (i.e. that the height of the plume originally reported by VSI, only 3km) was a large underestimation and is more close to 15-20 km as estimated by VAAC Darwin.

But 0bama is going to shut down a third of this country's power generating plants to reduce "polluting" co2.

The highly touted el Niño in the central pacific that's supposed to drive this summer's hot weather may have just been cooled off. Meanwhile in Bolivia (got to get past the ad 1st)

By blocking the sun, that ash is going to make global cooling even worse.

Everyone got so hung up on Bush's weather machine that they totally forgot about the volcano machine he had in storage. I guess after he dusted off the earthquake machine recently he decided pull this one out too!

My granddaughter is in Indonesia right now. On a 3 week mission trip with Baylor U.
I was not happy concerning her traveling there. Two things concerned me.
Islamic terrorists , Indonesia has the most Muslims of any country, many kooks.
and..
Volcanos.
She is completely out of touch. No phone, cell phone, internet, etc.

Located the volcano in relation to her on Google Maps.
She is about 600-700 miles North of Sangeang. No problem.

I am sorry to hear this. I can’t believe Baylor U. would not know exactly where your granddaughter is and exactly how to communicate with her, but that is more her parent’s province. I hope and pray for a good result.

I know where she is, there’s no common communications out of there. I’m sure a sat phone would work.
Apparently Baylor has been doing this for many years.

I would love to see that - from a distance. Quite a pyroclastic flow coming down off the plume in that one photo.

Wow. That collapsing plume on the right looks like it has the potential to skim over a fair distance of water. What a picture.
