ALASKA VOLCANO OBSERVATORY STATUS REPORT
U.S. Geological Survey
Monday, July 11, 2016, 11:14 PM AKDT (Tuesday, July 12, 2016, 07:14 UTC)
55°25'2" N 161°53'37" W,
Summit Elevation 8261 ft (2518 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: ADVISORY
Current Aviation Color Code: YELLOW
Beginning around 1PM AKDT (21:00 UTC) today, web camera images showed minor ash emissions reaching at most a few hundred feet above the summit vent (8,500 feet or 2.6 km above sea level) and extending a few miles to the SW. Emissions had declined in webcam images by 21:01 AKDT, after which fog has obscured the view. Clear satellite views from 21:20 AKDT (12 Jul 2016 05:20 UTC) show no evidence of ash emissions. There has been no seismicity associated with this low-level activity. A return to more robust eruptive activity remains possible and could occur with little or no warning. Thus, AVO will continue to monitor the volcano closely and will issue additional information as necessary.
OTHER ALASKA VOLCANOES
Other Alaska volcanoes show no signs of significant unrest: http://www.avo.alaska.edu/activity/
AVO scientists conduct daily checks of earthquake activity at all seismically-monitored volcanoes, examine web camera and satellite images for evidence of airborne ash and elevated surface temperatures, and consult other monitoring data as needed.
