The spate of restlessness at Gaua volcano in Vanuatu is evidently continuing. Radio New Zealand International reports that more activity has been observed by the volcanological team sent to Gaua to assess the situation. One of the team reports that very late on 5 October ‘an increase of a high volcanic high frequency’ was observed, which is presumably a reference to high frequency volcanic tremor.
The current alert level at Gaua is one, on a scale of one (lowest) to five (highest). The volcano is being closely monitored, and if there are further increases in activity the alert level will be increased to two, say the volcanologists.
