IMAGE 66711
AVO Image

Perspective satellite image view of Shishaldin Volcano from the northeast. Data is from the Advanced Land Imager aboard the EO-1 satellite. Base image is visible wavelength data and shortwave-infrared data is overlain in color showing the location of highly elevated surface temperatures in the summit crater. Snow and ice near the summit shows trace dusting of ash from low-level emissions. Dark streaks extending down the flanks from the summit are commonly observed during the summer at Shishaldin during non-eruptive periods and are not necessiarily related to the current low-level eruption.
