Wrangell reported activity



Start:January 18, 1996 Observed

Fumarolic or hydrothermal activity: BibCard
Steam: BibCard
Eruption Type:Not an eruption.

Description: From Neal and McGimsey (1997): "A pilot report of a suspicious cloud rising 5,000 feet near Wrangell Volcano prompted satellite analysis and phone calls on January 18, 1996. National Weather Service (NWS) contract observers in Glennallen subsequently confirmed that a robust steam plume had been visible over Wrangell for several weeks. Wrangell has several active fumarolic areas in its summit caldera. These fumaroles frequently produce steam plumes that are mistaken for eruptive activity."
