Image Caption: STS067-724A-91 Volcano Plume from Barren Island, Andaman Sea Barren
Island, a small volcanic island which is part of the Andaman Island
group in the Andaman Sea west of Malayasia, began a new eruptive phase
late in 1994. Barren Island last erupted in 1991. This eruption site
was surveyed by a team of Indian scientists in January, 1995; at that
time they thought the eruption was in an initial stage and gaining
momentum. This view, taken March 14, 1995, shows a healthy volcanic
plume rising several thousand feet into the atmosphere. The main plume
drifts southwestward over Andaman Island.
