Kavachi volcano (Solomon Islands): weekly volcanic activity report 25 Apr – 5 May 2020 - Notícia OVGA 08-05-2020
Discolored water around the Kavachi volcano
Satellite data showed discolored water around the volcano beginning in January 2020. The discolored plumes became more frequent, dense, and stretched for longer distances.
On 25 April, a satellite image showed a plume in the water extending about 15 km long and spread over an approximate area of 30 square kilometers.
A small brown circle about 50,000 square meters in area indicated the presence of material over the likely vent location. An image acquired on 30 April showed a thin ribbon of discolored water extending about 50 km W of Kavachi.
