Eruption of Pavlof Volcano as viewed from Cold Bay, Alaska, 37 miles southwest of the volcano. Lava fountaining from the summit vent is producing accumulations of spatter that gravitationally collapse to generate pyroclastic flows down the north flank (to the left of the volcano in this view). Ash and steam are seen rising from the pyroclastic flow in this image.
