10 September-16 September 2014

PVMBG reported explosive activity from Slamet during 4-12 September. During the past week, activity peaked with incandescent explosions; rumbling sounds were heard by scientists at the Slamet observation post. On 11 September the largest ash plume was observed (200-1,500 m above the summit) and incandescent plumes reached 400 m above the summit. Seismicity was dominated by emissions and explosion signals. Deformation data indicated that relatively little pressure was accumulating due to magma movement. PVMBG maintained the Alert Level 3 (on a scale of 1-4).
