While I was away...

Between 20th March and 11th April I was away on holiday in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands so I just needed to catch up with a couple of findings on satellite images.

We start first with Saunders Island and in the image from 28th March 2016 a dark area is present on the summit area of Mount Michael, but in other images from various days a gas emission seems to be drifting from Mount Michael.

On Zavodovski Island a narrow plume is seen drifting ENE in an image from 30th March indicating that a possible minor ash emission may have occurred. An image from 7th April again shows a narrow plume drifting east but only travelling a shorter distance.
