Bristol Island update 19/7/16

Satellite image from the 19th July 2016 shows a clear view of Bristol Island which appears to be grey in colour on the eastern half of the island. This could either be ashfall from the eruption of Mount Sourabaya or that the snow and ice has melted. An ash plume originating from Mount Sourabaya is visible drifting east-northeast. Also visible in the image are two short dark strips extending west and northwest respectively from the Mount Sourabaya area indicating lava flows.

  1. Hi,

    I am doing some research into the Bristol Island eruption, where do you source your data?
