Bristol Island update 3/8/16

Satellite images of Bristol Island from recent days did not show an ash plume but on the Landsat Viewer on the EOS Data Analytics website an infrared image from the 29th July 2016 reveals an active lava flow descending the northwest flank of Mount Sourabaya with a steam plume also being present. This is an indicator that the activity which began in late April 2016 continues. 

Because the island is partially covered in clouds it is difficult to observe the changes on the landscape.
