AVO VOLCANO ACTIVITY NOTIFICATION
(1) VOLCANO OBSERVATORY NOTICE FOR AVIATION (VONA)
(2) Issued: (20141028/2305Z)
(3) Volcano: Shishaldin (VNUM #311360)
(4) Current Color Code: ORANGE
(5) Previous Color Code: ORANGE
(6) Source: Alaska Volcano Observatory
(7) Notice Number: 2014/A14
(8) Volcano Location: N 54 deg 45 min W 163 deg 58 min
(9) Area: Aleutians
(10) Summit Elevation: 9373 ft (2857 m)
(11) Volcanic Activity Summary: The ongoing low-level eruptive activity at Shishaldin Volcano has increased in intensity over the past several days. Elevated surface temperatures were observed in satellite images beginning on October 25, and early that evening seismic tremor began to be recorded on nearby seismic stations, accompanied by stronger thermal anomalies. New deposits of ash and ballistics darkened the summit area, indicating the activity was energetic enough to eject material from a depth of several hundred meters (~600 ft) within the summit crater. The activity was recorded on infrasound arrays located in Akutan, 90 mi (145 km) to the southwest, and Dillingham, 363 mi (585 km) to the northeast.

No ash plumes have been reported or observed in satellite data; however, a steam and gas plume was visible in satellite imagery on Saturday, October 25. As of today, tremor continues and has increased in the past 24 hours.
