Fig. 1 - S5P TROPOMI (31.03.2022) - On 31 March, Taal volcano emitted 7856 tons of sulfur dioxide according to estimations.
Fig. 2 - S3 OLCI (25.03.2022) - The upwelling of hot volcanic fluids from the main crater lake generated a 2000 m tall plume, drifting SW.
Taal volcano, in the Philippines, is said to be one of the lowest in the world; its crater lake lies just two metres above sea level
Fig. 3 - S1 (27.02.2022->23.03.2022) - View of the volcano before the eruption, its layered volcanic tuff had a low cross-pol backscattering.
Fig. 4 - S1 (04.04.2022) - Bigger ejecta have covered the suface of Taal volcano, increasing its backscattering in VV but even more in VH.
