Indonesia Volcano Dusts Surrounding Landscape

In this Feb. 6, 2014, image from NASA’s EO-1 satellite, flow deposits are visible southeast of Sinabung’s summit and appear light gray.

Until 2010, Indonesia’s Sinabung volcano was dormant. Then a brief burst in 2010 caused the temporary evacuation of about 30,000 nearby residents. The volcano was at it again this February.

This 2013 image from NASA’s EO-1 satellite shows vegetation surrounding the volcano before its recent eruption.

Following the 2010 eruption, most people quickly returned as the activity waned. The recent eruption coated much of the surrounding landscape with ash, causing green dark green forests to appear tan.
