Activity update 2/6/16: Bristol Island, Zavodovski Island, Saunders Island

Satellite images from the 31st May and 1st June 2016 shows that an ash plume originating from Bristol Island is clearly evident and is drifting for a considerable distance in a northeasterly direction. Bristol Island however is not the only place displaying some form of volcanic activity, Mount Curry on Zavodovski Island has been emitting a gas plume also drifting for a considerable distance in a northeasterly direction on the same days.

Ash plume from Bristol Island more evident plus gas emission from Zavodovski Island is present in the image from 1st June 2016. SOURCE: Aqua/MODIS/NASA.

In an image from the 28th May 2016, a faintly dark line appears to be originating from Mount Michael on Saunders Island indicating a possible minor ash emission.
