Increasing Activity At Bagana Volcano In Papua New Guinea

SO2 plume from Bagana volcano (NOAA)
The volcano’s activity seems to have increased a bit during the past days although it is currently unknown what is exactly going on (growing lava dome? effusion of lava flows?). 
Overall heat emission (by presence of new lava in its summit area) has become stronger and smaller ash plumes drifting from the volcano to distances of 20-30 km have been reported more frequently by Darwin VAAC.
