AVO geochemical database now available
Posted: October 13, 2014
Whole-rock geochemical data for Quaternary Alaska volcanic rocks is now available here. This searchable database contains published whole-rock geochemical data for Quaternary volcanic rocks in Alaska, linked to geologist, publication, source volcano (where possible), and other sample and analysis metadata. The website interface allows users to query the database and return datasets as fully-documented .html or downloadable .csv tables.

Rather than a static publication, this database is intended to be updated as new volcano-related geochemical data is published. At present, the database contains analyses for more than 5,000 unique samples, making it a valuable research tool for geoscientists with interests ranging from volcano-specific processes to whole-arc data synthesis.

Please contact Cheryl Cameron or Seth Snedigar if you have further questions or comments about this dataset or the web interface.

AVO Scientists Discuss Cook Inlet Volcanoes on Frontier Scientists TV Series
Posted: October 06, 2014

Redoubt Volcano

When: Monday, October 27, 8:00 pm
Available on: 360 North, GCI Cable, DirecTV, and Dish Network.

Cook Inlet Volcanoes Featured on the Frontier Scientists TV Series in October: Alaska Volcano Observatory scientists will talk about how they track and monitor volcanic activity of the Cook Inlet volcanoes and the installation of the first ever real-time monitoring equipment (seismometers, infrasound sensors, web camera) to track activity at Cleveland Volcano.

Frontier Scientists connects Alaska field scientists with those curious about Arctic discoveries by sharing first-person accounts and real time insights from leading archeologists, biologists, volcanologists, climate change specialists and other scientists.

ALASKA VOLCANO OBSERVATORY DAILY UPDATE
Tuesday, October 21, 2014 10:52 AM AKDT (Tuesday, October 21, 2014 18:52 UTC)


SHISHALDIN VOLCANO (VNUM #311360)
54°45'19" N 163°58'16" W, Summit Elevation 9373 ft (2857 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: WATCH
Current Aviation Color Code: ORANGE

Nothing unusual was observed in partly cloudy satellite images and mostly cloudy webcam views today. Elevated seismic activity continues to be observed however.

CLEVELAND VOLCANO (VNUM #311240)
52°49'20" N 169°56'42" W, Summit Elevation 5676 ft (1730 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: ADVISORY
Current Aviation Color Code: YELLOW

No activity was detected in partly cloudy satellite images and mostly cloudy webcam images today. Seismicity remains at low levels.

OTHER ALASKA VOLCANOES

Other Alaska volcanoes show no signs of significant unrest: http://www.avo.alaska.edu/activity/

AVO scientists conduct daily checks of earthquake activity at all seismically-monitored volcanoes, examine web camera and satellite images for evidence of airborne ash and elevated surface temperatures, and consult other monitoring data as needed.
