Radio New Zealand quotes GNS Science volcanologist Craig Miller as saying that there is no imminent threat of eruption at Mount Ruapehu, despite recent increases in activity at the volcano. Meanwhile the New Zealand Department of Conservation continues to warn that ‘an increase in gas output and the internal temperature of the volcano represent an anomalous state of activity’ and that any further eruptions ‘may occur without warning’.
