28 June & 5 July 2006: eruptions from individual vents
|5 July. Strong spattering - not a discrete explosion! - from the central crater vent 2a.||5 July 06. Moments during an eruption of the collapsed cone 2b in the central crater.|
|28 June 06. Candle-like, gas rich jets from the NW crater cone.||28 June 06. The steep central crater cone 2b at the beginning and after an eruption (before its collapse).|
- the location and naming of vents -
|28 June 06. Sequence of a typical gas rich, candle-like eruption of the cone in NW crater, starting with glowing bluish-purple gas jet (burning hydrogen?)||5 July 06. Eruption of the western vent 2c in the central crater.|
|28 June 06. Rain of bombs from the NW crater vent 3a.||28 June 06. Eruptions from the central crater vent 2a.|
|28 June 06. Small eruptions in the central crater from vent 2a and 2b. Compare the configuration with the photos below, note the collapse of the 2b cone,||5 July 06. Eruptions from the NE crater.|
|5 July 06. Rain of bombs over the central and NW crater vents 2a and 2b. The flat cone of the western vent 2c in the central crater||5 July 06. Gas-rich fountain from the NW crater 3a.||5 July 06. The western vent 2c in the central crater covered with bombs.|
