Crater 3 was inactive except for weak fumarolic emissions.". Activity at Crater 3 was confined to the emission of white and blue vapours. . There were no reports of sound effects or incandescence from the summit. "Crater 3 released thin white vapour with very low ash content, and occasionally thin blue vapour. The active vent has formed a funnel-shaped crater in the NE part of Crater 2. "Seismicity remained at a moderate to high level throughout the month. stratovolcano (or composite volcano) — a conical volcano consisting of layers of solid lava flows mixed with layers of other rock. The commercial 747 was en route on R-204 from Seoul to Brisbane. Explosion or rumbling sounds were heard on about 60% of days. October seismic activity was moderate. Box 386, Rabaul, Papua New Guinea. .". Ashfall NW of the volcano (in the Kilenge area) was reported on 11 April. Based on analyses of satellite imagery and wind data, the Darwin VAAC reported that on 13 November an ash plume from Langila rose to an altitude of 2.1 km (7,000 ft) a.s.l. Further Reference. "The seismograph was shifted from Kilenge Mission (10 km W of Langila) to Cape Gloucester airstrip (8 km N of the volcano) to enable joint direct visual and seismic observations. Weak to moderate, pale grey emissions from Crater 2 were noted occasionally throughout the month, and weak rumbling, roaring, and explosion noises were heard on a few days during the first half of December. "Small nuées ardentes were produced by backfall of ejecta from some of the Crater 2 explosions. The eruption of lava from the No. The total thickness of these deposits was probably several millimeters. "An aerial inspection on 3 September revealed that Crater 3 is ~100 m in diameter and its N rim is markedly lower than the S rim. On 3-6, 19, and 20 January the emissions included weak gray and brown ash clouds. Volcano - Volcano - Six types of eruptions: Volcanoes are frequently classified by their size and shape (as is described in the section Volcanic landforms), but they can also be classified by their eruptive habits. Ashfall was observed on 8-22 October on the N, NW, and SE sides of the volcano. After the 7th, the activity changed to Vulcanian explosions only, accompanied by weak-to-loud detonations. As in recent months, the activity consisted of intermittent moderate Vulcanian explosions that produced variable density, white-to-gray ash-and-vapor clouds rising several hundred meters above the rim. During the first week of February, loud explosions at Crater 3 accompanied the release of grey ash, moderate to thin in volume, that rose several hundred metres above the summit. Crater 3's activity consisted of gentle fumarolic emissions. Seismicity remained at a low level with occasional Vulcanian explosion events recorded.". On 30 May two large explosions produced ash plumes that rose to ~5.3 km and drifted NW. A longer (~150 m) lobe of lava was present on the NE flank of Cone 3. . Frequent mild-to-moderate explosive eruptions, sometimes accompanied by lava flows, have been recorded since the 19th century from three active craters at the summit. "Seismicity increased slightly during the month and continued to reflect the eruptive activity at Crater 2. Sporadic low-power anomalies occurred in January, April, and May 2018. Elevated sulfur dioxide concentrations were also detected. The volcano consists of a group of four small overlapping composite cones on the lower eastern flank of extinct Talawe volcano. although there was an increase toward the end of the month. Rabaul Volcano Observatory (RVO) data indicates the activity during 2017 was primarily located in Crater 2 (northern-most crater). 05EA012 28 June 2006 The Federation’s mission is to improve the lives of vulnerable people by mobilizing the power of humanity. . The level of seismic activity remained steady, and consisted of moderate-amplitude volcanic earthquakes, probably of explosion origin. continued throughout June. On 23 May ash plumes rose 2.1 and 3 km (7,000 and 10,000 ft) a.s.l. During 1-7 October 2007, RVO reported low-to-moderate eruptive activity consisting of continuous emission of pale gray ash clouds which rose to ~1.8-3.3 km and were blown W to NW. "From 1-20 December, activity consisted of occasional emissions of white-grey tephra rising to 0.6-1.2 km above the summit, accompanied by weak to low rumbling noises and explosions. Throughout November-December, Crater 2 continued to emit white-to-gray ash and vapor, with plumes rising up to several hundred meters above the crater. Data acquisition and analysis. The clouds were blown to the N, NW, and SE of the volcano, resulting in fine ashfalls. 2004: December The seismograph remained inoperative. During February, Crater 2 continued to erupt. Steady weak red glow was seen on 1 and 15 August. One explosion noise was heard on the 12th, and occasional rumbling noises were heard on the 17th and 23rd. No ash was visible on satellite imagery. Seismic activity also increased from the 29th, with several Vulcanian explosions recorded per day and some harmonic tremor. and drifted NW and W. A thermal anomaly over the volcano was visible on 3 August. There was no night glow visible throughout the month. Four alert pixels were recorded for 2004, on 20 (one each on Aqua and Terra), 25, and 27 January. . The aviation color code has remained at Orange (third highest of a four-step universal volcanic ash alert level system for aviation) throughout 2016 and through July 2017. at 1000 on . White-grey vapour and ash emissions were seen on a few days, and occasional relatively small Vulcanian explosions were observed. The explosion was heard [9] km away where fine ashfall was noted. Light, fine ash fell [9] km N of the vent on 14 and 22 November. Steady, weak crater glow was seen on most nights. | October "In early April, seismicity appeared to mainly reflect the activity at Crater 2, while during 7-14 April, most of the seismicity was associated with Crater-3 activity. | November and drifted 55 km NE and E. Based on analyses of satellite imagery, the Darwin VAAC reported that during 2-3 April ash plumes from Langila rose to an altitude of 2.1 km (7,000 ft) a.s.l. Crater glow was seen occasionally during the month, and rumbling and explosion sounds were heard daily. Occasional rumbling noises accompanying the emissions were heard intermittently throughout the month. "Seismic records indicate an average of about five Vulcanian explosions per day in the first week of July, accompanied by large-amplitude harmonic tremor on most days. On 14 June ash plumes rose 1.8 km (6,000 ft) a.s.l. High-pressure degassing was occurring from six fissures in the crater floor. remains inactive. After 18 May, deep rumbling noises and/or loud Vulcanian explosions were heard at the Cape Gloucester observation post . ", "A moderate level of activity continued .

There were a few Vulcanian explosions from Crater 2 in the first half of the month, and virtually no activity during the second half of the month. "Crater 3 continued to show a low level of activity, usually releasing tenuous white vapours. Although some reports described W-drifting plumes, one report at 1745 on 12 February described a "tight radius" plume that consisted of a ". The head of Yogyakarta’s Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation Center, Hanik Humaida, warned that Merapi, Indonesia's most active volcano, could … Explosion and rumbling sounds usually accompanied these Vulcanian explosions. From 17 November onward, activity increased with occasional forceful eruptions of grey ash clouds, rising several kilometres above the crater, accompanied by loud or deep rumbling and explosion noises. The latest period of incandescent lava ejections and night glow at Crater 2 ended on 9 May, although there were still moderate emissions of thin-to-thick grey ash-vapour clouds. On 6-7, and 9-13 July, ash clouds rose less than 1 km above the summit before drifting NNW. Seismicity was at a moderate level with 2-10 Vulcanian explosion events/day. Weak roaring noises were heard on 1 July, but glow was absent at night. Seismic activity remained at a low level throughout the month with only 2 explosion shocks recorded, on the 17th and the 30th.". Tremor, hardly noticeable in May, occurred almost daily in June-July (up to 100-200 minutes/day). Information Contacts: I. Itikarai, P. de Saint-Ours, and C. McKee, RVO; ICAO. No seismic recording took place during the month. "Activity at Crater 2 remained moderately strong, while a slight decline was evident at Crater 3. No ash was identifiable on satellite imagery. There was no seismic recording. Occasional weak to loud explosions were heard throughout the month. A number of low-frequency explosion earthquakes (2-9) were recorded daily, some of which were accompanied by loud detonations heard at the the observation post . When the summit was free of cloud at night, a steady weak glow was seen above the crater. . Moderate eruptive activity continued at Crater 2 during April. Occasional weak vapour emissions were observed from Crater 3 on the 4-5th, 10-11th, 13th, and 22nd.". Information Contacts: I. Itikarai, P. de Saint-Ours, R. Stewart, and C. McKee, RVO. Rabaul Volcano Observatory (RVO) reported that during 22-28 August 2005, modest eruptive activity was observed at Langila's Crater 2. Incandescent rocks were observed tumbling down the NW flank at about 0330, accompanied by loud explosions and rumbling sounds. Weak, steady, red glow was observed 1-4 and 25-31 March. On 25 April, ash clouds rose to an altitude of 2.5 km. Seismic levels remained moderate. The summit area was obscured by rain and clouds on many days in January and February. Information Contacts: H. Patia, P. de Saint-Ours, and B. Talai, RVO. Thick black ash clouds were emitted towards the end of the month, resulting in ashfall on the SE side of the volcano. The greyish color is not considered to be caused by entrained ash but to be an effect of peculiar light conditions [during early-morning periods of observation]. "From 21-27 December, activity became much stronger, with continuous ejection of thick tephra-laden vapour to 1.8-2.7 km above the summit accompanied by continuous loud rumbling and explosion sounds. Crater 3 was quiet. An extensive lava field reaches the coast on the N and NE sides of Langila. Ash was not detected in satellite imagery. Based on information from RVO, the Darwin VAAC reported that ash emissions from Langila rose to ~2.1 km (~7,000 ft) a.s.l. Kilauea is the youngest and most active Hawaiian shield volcano and is located on the southern parts of the Island of Hawaii. Crater 3 produced frequent mild Vulcanian explosions, with occasional larger ones (6-38/day). Seismic activity showed a good correlation with visible activity. Background activity consisted of release of small volumes of white vapour from Crater 2, with occasional deep, low rumbling noises. During most of November, activity at Crater 2 consisted of noiseless emission of thin white vapour. Crater 3, which had resumed activity in mid-May, released white-to-grey vapor and ash clouds, and light ashfall occurred towards the NE of the volcano on the 6th and 8th. Continuous fine ashfall occurred at Kilenge Catholic Mission (~10 km NW) and surrounding areas during 22-31 May. Plumes at and Manam were strong, and plume was small. ", Occasional Vulcanian explosions for 10 days. Similar debris also extended in short tongues to <100 m outside the crater rim and probably was deposited by small pyroclastic flows such as those reported earlier in October. Information Contacts: D. Lolok, R. Stewart, and B. Talai, RVO. Moderately thick brown/grey ash was explosively ejected until 20 January. . The evidence of eruption only continued until the next day, when cloud cover obscured the area. The heights of the plumes were not reported. "In August, Crater 3 frequently erupted moderate to strong, pale grey-brown ash and vapour clouds accompanied by weak to loud detonations, roaring or rumbling. Since the first week of September, there has been little activity. Based on analyses of satellite imagery and model data, the Darwin VAAC reported that during 23 and 26-28 May ash plumes from Langila rose to altitudes of 2.4-3 km (8,000-10,000 ft) a.s.l. These caused fine ashfall NW of the volcano. The summit seismometer continued to record discontinuous tremor-like signals until 23 November. | September The only sound from this crater during November was a deep loud explosion on 28 November and rumbling noises on the 29th and 30th. Deep low rumbling sounds were heard on 1, 6, 13, and 24 August and weak red glow was observed on the 5th, 18th, and 22nd.". ", Explosions, tremor from gas venting; glow seen twice, "Explosive eruptive activity continued at Crater 2, and was stronger 2-6 September. Ash was also reported at Siassi, Umboi Island (30 km W) on 24 and 25 September. Based on analyses of satellite imagery and wind-model data, the Darwin VAAC reported that on 23 September an ash plume from Langila rose to an altitude of 2.7 km (9,000 ft) a.s.l. Crater 3 remained quiet. "Eruptive activity . Similar low-level eruptive activity resumed on 15-18, 24, and 28-29 September. MODVOLC data are now routinely available from the Aqua satellite (equator crossing times 0230 and 1430 local time) in addition to the original Terra satellite (equator crossing times 1030 and 2230 local time). The ash clouds drifted W, SW, SE, and NW, depositing ash in those areas. One large explosion on 21 September sent ash to an altitude of 2-3 km and resulted in ashfalls to the SW. Crater 3 was quiet, emitting only thin white vapor. Occasional explosions that may have been phreatomagmatic produced ash-laden plumes. Crater 3 continued to be relatively inactive, with only weak vapour emissions on 16, 28, and 29 April. | August Crater 2 was more active from the 22nd. By contrast, Crater 2 explosions were muffled and only glow above the crater was seen at night. Strong explosions continue; incandescent tephra, "Strong eruptive activity continued during December although a decline was apparent in the last week of the month. Except for 1 July when weak roaring noises were heard, the volcano was quiet and without appreciable night glow. On 10 June a discrete event produced an ash plume that rose to 2.1 km (7,000 ft) a.s.l. Low and high frequency earthquakes and volcanic tremor were recorded. Fine ashfall was reported downwind (SE). Talawe is the highest volcano in the Cape Gloucester area of NW New Britain. The volcano was quiet at the beginning of the month. . Crater 3 was inactive. "Activity at Crater 3 was similar to that in November. Based on analyses of satellite imagery and model data, the Darwin VAAC reported that on 4 October a minor ash emission from Langila rose 1.8 km (6,000 ft) a.s.l. There is no Deformation History data available for Langila. ", "The slightly stronger activity . Crater 3 remained quiet apart from a single emission of very thin white/gray vapor on 7 May. Moderately thick gray ash was emitted from Crater 2 through most of the month, accompanied by deep roaring and rumbling sounds. Being the rainy season, the craters were covered by atmospheric clouds on most nights, but incandescent projections were seen at Crater 3 on 3 January. On 25 October an ash cloud that rose to 2 km above the crater deposited ash toward the N. Likewise, at 0655 on 26 October a thick, white vapor plume was accompanied by an ash column that rose to 1 km above the crater rim. These cones lie on the E side of the inactive Talawe volcano. Weak-to-bright glow and weak projections of incandescent lava fragments were visible on 22, 23, and 28 February, and on 1, 2, and 6 March. "An increase in activity at Crater 3, which had been inactive since April 1983, began towards the end of June and continued during July. On the 30th a Vulcanian explosion sent ash and vapour to a height of about 3 km. Crater 2 released white vapour in moderate amount during the first half of the month, when a steady night glow could be seen (until the 17th). Additional ash plumes were detected on 29 September and 30 October 2018. It appeared that most of the stronger seismicity was associated with events at Crater 3. ", "On most days of observation, Crater 2 emitted white vapour, and brown or rarely grey ash in moderate volumes. Explosions build to 6-day Strombolian-Vulcanian event. Seismic activity during February remained at a moderate level with minor fluctuations. Crater 3 released light white vapor throughout the month. A good correlation could be seen between the level of seismicity and volcanic activity in September. During the month volcanic activity was low at Crater 3, with only thin white vapor sporadically visible. Seismicity was low throughout the month.". Low explosion noises were also heard on the 29th. Volcano: LANGILA. For the remainder of September and October, it only emitted very thin wisps of vapor, occasionally accompanied by blue vapor. Crater 3 was quiet. Prevailing winds carried most of the initial ashfall to the sea, but lower-level winds redirected the ash back onto the island. and drifted WSW, W, and WNW. Stronger activity during 20-24 September consisted of dense dark gray ash clouds and some incandescent ejections. before drifting WSW of the volcano. Crater 3 released weak fumarolic vapors. Vapor and ash emission; detonations; weak glow, "Activity declined somewhat in February following the slight increase in late December-mid January. 17 February, and observed extensive modifications to internal details of Crater 2 and continuous light ash ejection from new funnel-shaped vent in Crater 2. ", Moderate intermittent Vulcanian explosions from both craters. Langila volcano is located 11 km south of Cape Gloucester, West New Britain. In September 2009 eruptions occurred at Langila's Crater 2, sending aloft dense ash plumes seen for hundreds of kilometers. Numerous low-amplitude, short-duration, tremor-like signals were produced by weaker explosions. A few large Vulcanian explosions were observed, and associated detonations and rumblings were heard frequently at the beginning of the month. Seismicity was at a very low level with only a few volcanic earthquakes recorded. Activity subsided but continued as late as the end of October 2009 (BGVN 34:11). Emissions from Crater 2 consisted of weak-to-moderate white-gray vapour and ash clouds. Weak but steady and sometimes bright fluctuating night glows were visible on 4, 25, and 26 December. It is the world’s largest humanitarian organization and its millions of volunteers are active in over 181 countries. and drifted WNW. R. Cooke reported the following . Dark emissions from Crater 3 were observed once (on 1 December); otherwise, the only products from this crater were white and blue vapours. Crater 3 remained quiet. Weak rumbling and roaring noises occasionally accompanied the emissions and fairly significant ash columns were forcefully ejected to 2 km height on 4, 9, 11, and 30 May. On most days when the summit was clear, pale grey or brown emissions were reported from Crater 2. Since March 2006, activity has continued at Crater 2. According to the Darwin VAAC, the RVO reported that Langila erupted at 1130 on 17 October. and drifted S and SW. Based on analyses of satellite imagery and wind model data, the Darwin VAAC reported that on 5 November an ash plume from Langila rose 3.7 km (12,000 ft) a.s.l. The Darwin VAAC reported that another ash plume was seen in MTSAT-2 visible imagery on 5 December that rose to an altitude of 2.1 km and drifted 110 km NW. and drifted NW. Thermal anomalies detected by MODIS instruments on the Terra and Aqua satellites were absent after 2 January 2006 until 21 July 2006. They were often accompanied by tremor lasting 1-10 minutes and the rise of Vulcanian ash clouds over the crater. Several Vulcanian explosions were recorded every day. Seismicity remained low, with only a few explosion earthquakes recorded daily.". The seismograph remained unoperational. 1). Crater 3 continued to show little or no activity. There were no audible sounds and no night glows. During October varying amounts of white fume were emitted from Crater 3. Crater 2 intermittently released white-grey ash and vapour clouds in small to moderate amounts. No additional activity was reported until 1 December 2012, when, according to the Darwin Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre (VAAC), a pilot observed an ash plume at an altitude of 1.5 km. Ash clouds from the eruption were blown generally NW towards Kilenge ~ 100 km away, where light to moderate ashfall was reported. Occasional explosion earthquakes were recorded. Grey and brown ash emissions from Crater 2 were seen on about 50% of days; otherwise, white vapours were emitted. Fine ashfalls were reported on 4, 12, 19, and 25 December to the N and SE of the volcano. The intermittent tremor recorded since June disappeared in September but reappeared sporadically in October. There was no visible activity from Crater 3. Intermittent eruptive activity at Crater 2. Approximately 10,000 people live in the volcano's vicinity, in a remote area where radio communication is unreliable and access is only by boat or helicopter. ~ ~ ~ ~ "Langila returned to very subdued activity in June. Explosions of incandescent lava fragments were visible during 2-6 November and roaring noises were heard on 2-6, 12-16, and 20 November. The ash content of emissions was generally low, but ashfalls were recorded [~9] km downwind on the 5th and 16th. "From the 8th until the end of the month, Crater 2 released white emissions in small to moderate quantities. Crater 2 usually emitted white vapor, but on four occasions in the first half of August, brown emissions were observed. Variable winds in April caused the ash plumes to be blown to the NW, NE, and SE. On 18 January a large explosion produced a thick dark ash column that penetrated the atmospheric clouds over the summit area. The increase was characterized by nearly continuous ash emissions that rose to 1-2 km above the summit (7,650-10,900 feet altitude) and drifted WSW. Fine ashfalls were recorded in coastal areas (9 km distant) on 1, 2, 6, and 12 August. Light ashfall in coastal areas downwind was reported on 12 and 26 August. Very bright glow was visible during the night with moderate projections of incandescent lava fragments. | December and drifted SW. Ashfall was reported in areas downwind. The summit was obscured by clouds from 25 July and it was not clear whether the flow was still active. No change in engine parameters. Consistently, the ash emissions were accompanied by occasional weak-to-loud roaring or booming noises. "Activity at Crater 2 . Talawe is the largest volcano in Cape Gloucester.There have been dozens of recorded eruptions since the 19th century from three separate volcanic craters at the summit of Langila. During the remainder of the month, Crater 2 released a steady white-gray plume of ash-laden vapour. Weak to moderate white with occasional grey emission continued from Crater 2 throughout the month. In the sub-continuous seismic background, each discrete explosion was recorded as a sharp, large-amplitude event with a period of 1.5 Hz.". and drifted NE, NNW, and NW. No night glow was seen until 29 May. "Moderate eruptive activity continued during May. The westernmost vent was directing its jet of ash-laden vapour at an angle of 15° toward the SE, resulting in the backfall of blocks and spatter-like scoriae on the SE crater rim and beyond. Active during August-September, decreasing during October-November. A plume was seen a bit later on MODIS imagery extending 110 km to the NNW but ash was not visible in satellite imagery. Vulcanian eruptions continued at Langila's Crater 2 during 21-27 November 2005, with a slight increase in the level of activity compared to the previous week. Based on analyses of satellite imagery and wind data, the Darwin VAAC reported that on 16 November an ash plume from Langila rose to an altitude of 4.3 km (14,000 ft) a.s.l. 2020-10-24 10:15 original message : received fvau02 at 10:14 utc, 24/10/20 from adrm va advisory dtg: 20201024/1015z vaac: darwin volcano: langila 252010 psn: s0532 e14825 area: papua new guinea summit elev: 1330m advisory nr: 2020/18 info source: himawari-8 aviation colour code: orange eruption details: va to fl070 mov n 05kt obs va dtg: 24/1015z obs va cld: … Crater 3 remained quiet during June. At night, weak to moderate red glow over the crater and occasional incandescent lava ejections were seen. Glow was visible 12-14 December, with ejection of glowing fragments to 270 m on the 13th. Information Contacts: David A. Rothery and Charlotte Saunders, Department of Earth Sciences, The Open University, Milton Keynes, MK7 6AA, United Kingdom. "Moderate explosive activity persisted at Crater 2 during the first week of October, but from the 8th until the end of the month, eruptive activity was at a low level. Light to moderate ashfalls at the observation post 10 km N of the volcano were recorded on 5 days but mostly in the second half of the month. Ash-and-vapor clouds and occasional night glow. Occasional brown or grey emissions from Crater 2 were observed, but usually this vent released only white vapours. A weak incandescent glow was seen on 22 and 28 April. Activity changed to subcontinuous forceful emissions of dark gray ash on 1, 2, 6, 7, and 9 March. Lava had flowed eastward to form a short (70 m) lobe in the E part of the crater. Night glow was not observed at Crater 2 after the 24th, although dark ash emission persisted. The daily total of low-frequency events ranged from 4 to 52 . By about 6 hours later that plume ceased to be visible. Emissions were limited to weak white vapours. Table 6. Vulcanian explosions were observed on 7 and 30 October. | February ", Incandescent tephra; ashfalls; seismicity, "A steady level of mild eruptive activity prevailed at Crater 2 during the first part of April. Crater 2 occasionally released white to greyish vapour. of Hawai'i, 2525 Correa Road, Honolulu, HI 96822, USA (URL: http://modis.higp.hawaii.edu/). Moderately thick white vapor emissions continued at Crater 2 in April. and drifted WNW. Occasionally during the report period observers noted loud noises, incandescence, and weak emissions of glowing lava fragments. The eruptive activity consisted of variable gray ash clouds on most days of the month that rose ~ 1 km above the summit before being blown NE, causing fine ashfall downwind. Small incandescent lava fragments were ejected on 12 July. Other than moderate volumes of white and occasionally blue vapour emission, it only produced Vulcanian explosions on 11 and 18 May. Langila's typical activity is strombolian to vulcanian explosions, sometimes accompanied by lava flows.
