Our very own Granyia has set up several pages of webcams watching volcanoes.
While we are waiting if something happens around Hekla, Icelands rifting and earthquake happening around Grimsey Island calmed down a little bit. I thought we could fill the time, helping Graniya finding some webcams. The possibility to watch active volcanoes from your home is an “invention” of the 21st. century. All the images on this post are webcam screenshots taken by me.
This for example was Kirishima in 2011.
I discovered the possibility of watchig volcanic action live from my comfortable couch in my living room with the Eyjafjalla eruption 2010. Here are 3 of the screenshots which had already been published on the post: The ashes of Eyjafjallajökull.
Iceland spoils us with its webcams, because most cams in Iceland are streaming webcams. Other volcanocams take pictures and update every minute or every 5 minutes and some even only every half hour. It is not really possible strombolian action when you only get an image every now and then, but at least one is able to get a glimpse which is live or almost live.
Here comes a list of webcams which are my personal favorites:
I could not reach Granyia´s webcam pages today but here is the link anyway:
It takes ots of time and devotion to set up such sites. Thank you Granyia for doing this, for yourself but also for us.
Here is her comment from the last thread:
“Hello all! I am delighted that some of you find my webcam collection useful (I know, some others put watching webcams in the same league as knitting scarves ) I have somewhat beautified and added my page for Indonesia, with mainly the “back cameras” as georgiade said above, from the badan geologi website. Now, from the 11 cams I have there 7 are not working… If one of you knows of another volcano webcam in Indonesia or on other Pacific Islands, please, please, let me know the link! Thanks in advance!
So far I have
Lokon, Ijen, Tangkuban, Sinabung, Merapi, Semeru, Papandayan, Galunggung, Bromo 2x, Yasur (Vanuatu). There are supposedly 2 more in Vanuatu, but I cannot find them.
And this the link to the Indonesian page:
Any suggestions for improvements are welcome!”
I have set up a list with many links to cams or links to other sites lists in the Crow`s nest Volcano Webcams.
Please check this page from time to time. Links change. Cams are removed or set up. Next to my rl duties and the duties as admin of VC i dont have the time to continously check all links. So if you would leave a comment telling me which link is broken or should be added, i would appreatiate this very much. Thank you in advance.
Last but not least, a screenshout from BOB south of La Restina on El Hierro taken last year. This cam does not exist anymore, but the picture brings up old memories.
