The Advanced Land Imager (ALI) on board NASA's Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) satellite collected a natural-color image of an ash plume from Indonesia’s Sinabung volcano on February 6, 2014. Frequent collapses from the unstable lava dome near Sinabung’s summit create pyroclastic flows that have swept at least 4.5 kilometers (2.8 miles) down the slopes so far. The flow deposits are visible southeast of Sinabung’s summit and appear light grayish(R-Bottom). The eruption has coated much of the surrounding landscape with ash, causing green dark green forests to appear tan. Turn on the image comparison tool to see how much the landscape has changed compared to 2013. More than 30,000 people have been displaced as Mount Sinabung that killed about 16 people continues spewing smoke and hot ash. The ash has coated nearby villages, as well as the coffee, chili pepper, and other plantations clustered at the foot of the volcano.
