In a statement today, the agency, which measures quakes and volcanoes, said the tragedy continues to weigh heavily on workers' minds.

"Our thoughts continue to be with all impacted by the eruption last month at Whakaari/White Island.

"We thought it important to let you know that today we have returned the volcano cameras feed to our website."

Fourty-seven people were on the island when it erupted on December 9.

In addition to the 20 killed as a result of the disaster, 27 others were injured, many of whom were Australian tourists.
