Minor volcanic unrest continues at White Island

white island

GNS scientists confirm minor volcanic unrest continues at White Island.

They reported an increase in the amount of volcanic gas been emitted and the presence of volcanic tremor. These changes are consistent with minor volcanic unrest and the Activity may continue to increase or die away. Typical volcanic unrest hazards like hot ground and gas remain. A range of activity can occur under these conditions with little or no useful warning.

GNS Science is continuing to closely monitor the activity at White Island (and other New Zealand volcanoes) through the GeoNet project. The Volcanic Alert Level remains at Level 1 – minor volcanic unrest.
