Description: From McGimsey and Neal (1996): "In mid-April, 1995, reports from observers in Perryville and Port Heiden of small dark plumes over Veniaminof coincided with thermal anomalies near the active vent recorded on satellite images (Smithsonian Institution, 1995, v. 20, n. 3). This low-level activity was interpreted to result from interaction of lava with ice and snow causing occasional low-energy ash bursts and steam generation (Smithsonian Institution, 1995, v. 20, n. 4). Perryville residents heard rumblings and booms and witnessed minor ash emission on November 15, 1995, as reported in the last AVO weekly update that included Veniaminof (12-1-95). Summit hot spots were visible on satellite images of November 2, 8, and 17, 1995. No activity was reported in December."
