|(1) VOLCANO OBSERVATORY NOTICE FOR AVIATION (VONA)|
|(3) Volcano:||Semisopochnoi (VNUM #311060)|
|(4) Current Color Code:||YELLOW|
|(5) Previous Color Code:||ORANGE|
|(6) Source:||Alaska Volcano Observatory|
|(7) Notice Number:|
|(8) Volcano Location:||N 51 deg 55 min E 179 deg 35 min|
|(10) Summit Elevation:||2625 ft (800 m)|
|(11) Volcanic Activity Summary:||Recent satellite observations and a lack of seismic tremor over the past week indicate eruptive activity at Semisopochnoi has paused. Thus we are lowering the Aviation Color Code to YELLOW and the Volcano Alert Level to ADVISORY. Although seismic tremor is currently absent at Semisopochnoi, discrete earthquake activity remains above background levels.
Pauses in eruptive activity lasting for weeks to months are known to occur during volcanic eruptions. A return to eruptive activity remains a possibility at Semisopochnoi that could occur with little or no warning. AVO will continue to monitor the volcano closely.
|(12) Volcanic cloud height:||Unknown|
|(13) Other volcanic cloud information:||Unknown|
|(14) Remarks:||Semisopochnoi is monitored with an on-island seismic network, and remotely by satellite and lightning sensors. An infrasound array on Adak Island could detect explosive emissions from Semisopochnoi with a 13 minute delay if atmospheric conditions permit.|
