Iliamna reported activity

Iliamna Links
Event Specific Information:

This is a questionable event.

Start:December 1768 Observed

Active; type of activity not specified: BibCard BibCard BibCard
Eruption Type:Other

Description: Sapper (1917) reports Iliamna active in 1768. However, Grewingk (1850, translated 2003 by Fritz Jaensch) does not mention Iliamna active in 1768, but does quote Cook as saying Iliamna was active in 1778. Cook (1795, reprinted by Beaglehole, 1967) does mention smoke from Iliamna in 1778. Perhaps the 1768 date is a typographical error made by Sapper.
