In 2006, volcanic eruptions occurred at four volcanoes. No persons were injured. At Miyakejima volcano, high SO2 flux still continued.
Following 5 active volcanoes erupted in 2005. The activity shown here is as of January 2006.
Small eruption was observed in March.
Small eruptions were observed in February and August. High volcanic gas flux still continued. SO2 flux is decreasing in the long run and the present flux is 1000-3000 ton/day. Miyake page
Vulcanian eruptive activity is still continueing. 15 explosions occurred in 2006. In June, eruptions took place at Showa crater that is located at the eastern flank near the summit.
Suwanosejima(Kagoshima, Tokara islands)
Active eruption and seismic activity continued.
