EVENT SPECIFIC INFORMATION

This is a questionable event.

Start:December 1795 Observed

Central eruption: BibCard
Eruption Type:Explosive

Description: From Veniaminov (1840, translated by Lydia T. Black and R.H. Geoghegan, 1984): "The low peak in the interior of Unimak Island, near its south end, burned until the upheaval of the southwest range, in 1795, then was extinguished." Possibly Veniaminov is referring to Fisher Caldera.
