ALASKA VOLCANO OBSERVATORY STATUS REPORT
U.S. Geological Survey
Monday, September 5, 2011, 12:25 PM AKDT (Monday, September 5, 2011, 20:25 UTC)
52°49'20" N 169°56'42" W,
Summit Elevation 5676 ft (1730 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: ADVISORY
Current Aviation Color Code: YELLOW
A thermal anomaly at the summit of Mt. Cleveland was observed in satellite data last night, but clouds obscured the volcano this morning. AVO has received no other information about unrest at the volcano and we have not had a clear satellite view of the summit to determine if the thermal anomalies observed over the past few days are associated with renewed lava dome growth.
Without a real-time seismic network on the volcano, AVO is unable to track local earthquake activity related to volcanic unrest, provide forecasts of eruptive activity, or confirmation of explosive, ash-producing events. AVO will continue to monitor the volcano using satellite data as it becomes available.
