|1770-00-00||1770-00-00||Amukta: 1770|| Grewingk (1850, translated 2003 by Fritz Jaensch) writes that Amukta was "with active volcano until this year ." Becker (1898) and Dall (1870) translate this statement as 1770 being the year Amukta became quiet.||asterisk_yellow.png||ye||50||http://www.avo.alaska.edu/volcanoes/activity.php?volcname=Amukta&eruptionid=90&page=basic|
|1786-06-00||1791-00-00||Amukta: 1786 - 1791 || Grewingk (1850, translated 2003 by Fritz Jaensch) writes that Shelikov reported Amukta "all in flames" in June of 1786, and Sarychev reported it active in 1790. In Grewingk's chronological table of eruptions, he writes that Amukta was active from 1786 through 1791. The English translation of Sarychev is less clear: "On the morning of the 29th we passed the island Amuchta at a distance of 6 miles. It is about 27 miles in extent, and is said to have a volcano."

|1876-00-00||Amukta: 1876|| Coats (1950) reports smoke from Amukta in 1876. An article in the journal Nature (1879) reports Amukta in eruption in 1878, however. The Nature article states: "In the volcanic series of the Aleutian Islands, the volcanoes on Amukta, Tscheguluk, and the Vsevidok volcano (almost 2,800 m high) on Umnak were in eruption."||asterisk_yellow.png||ye||50||http://www.avo.alaska.edu/volcanoes/activity.php?volcname=Amukta&eruptionid=92&page=basic|
|1932-03-01||Amukta: 1932|| Newspaper accounts of a possible eruption at Amukta Volcano in 1932 are as follows:
From the Associated Press, March 1, 1932: "The crew of the motorship Eunice here [Dutch Harbor, AK] from the west, reported Amukta Island was throwing out a dense cloud of smoke and ashes over the water."
From the International News Service, March 1, 1932: "Spouting smoke and ashes for the first time in modern history of any of the present residents of Amukta Island volcano in the Aleutians group today ...

|1963-02-13||1963-2-28||Amukta: 1963|| From Miller and others (1998): "On February 13, 1963 an eruption occurred involving the central crater and one or more parasitic vents; both ash and lava were produced (Anchorage Times, February 11, 1963; Decker, 1967). Persistent low clouds obscured the exact source of the lava, but the flow was seen to extend from the west side of the cone southwest into the sea at Traders Cove (Bulletin of Volcanic Eruptions, 1963 [Coats, R.R., 1963]."

|1984-07-12||Amukta: 1984|| From Reeder (1987): "Pilot Tom Madsen observed the emission of voluminous amounts of steam from the summit crater of Amukta volcano of Amukta Island during a return trip from Atka of Atka Island to Dutch Harbor of Unalaska Island. His observation was made at about 1600 local time on 12 July 1984. The steam plume completely filled the summit crater, rose to a 1,100 m altitude just above the volcano, and drifted to the SW for at least 4 km at a lower altitude. Tom Madsen has flown in the Aleutian ... More information||asterisk_yellow.png||ye||50||http://www.avo.alaska.edu/volcanoes/activity.php?volcname=Amukta&eruptionid=94&page=basic|
|1987-09-04||Amukta: 1987|| From Reeder (1990): "On 4 September 1987, flight engineer George Wooliver observed from his Reeve Aleutian Airways, Inc. Boeing 727 a small eruption plume from the top of Amukta Island. The dark tephra plume rose at least 300 m above the volcano and then drifted to NW for up to 1 km. George could visually see the NW side of the volcano, while the rest of it was covered by low altitude clouds. George's observations were made from a 9,750 m altitude at a distance of unfortunately nearly 120 km ...

|1996-07-00||1996-9-00||Amukta: 1996|| From Neal and McGimsey (1997): "In early July (date not recorded but it was during the first week), AVO received a fax from the USCG which included a ship-based observation in the vicinity of Seguam Island. Crew noted a 'large plume of ash and smoke * * * from Amukta.' They estimated the plume to be 2500-3000 feet high, presumably over the summit of the volcano. USFWS workers on Seguam were notified but reported seeing nothing unusual in the direction of Amukta. Satellite images from around ...

|1997-03-02||Amukta: 1997|| From McGimsey and Wallace (1999): "On March 3, 1997, Dutch Harbor air-taxi operator Tom Madsen reported seeing a small ash eruption at Amukta with the cloud barely clearing the top of the cone. No evidence of eruptive activity was detected from analysis of satellite images. The PIREP was included in AVO weekly updates of March 7 and 14. Absence of seismic instrumentation coupled with remoteness of the area requires AVO to rely mainly on PIREPs and satellite imagery for monitoring the volcanoes ...
