Continuous Ash Emissions during the 2014–2015 Activity at Nakadake First Crater, Aso Volcano

Following the 1988–1995 major activity, a series of magmatic eruptions began on November 25, 2014 at the Nakadake first crater of Aso Volcano in central Kyushu, southwestern Japan, continuing until May 3, 2015. The 2014–2015 eruptive activity at Nakadake first crater was dominated by continuous ash emissions from a vent 20–30 m across formed near the center of the crater, although strombolian eruptions were recognized immediately after the activity began.
