IMAGE 104601
AVO Image

Satellite image of Bogoslof volcano collected on 31 January 2017 showing the significant changes at Bogoslof Island following the eruption during the night of 30 to 31 January. Freshly erupted volcanic rock and ash have formed a barrier that separates the vent from the sea. This is the first time this has been observed since the eruptive sequence began in mid-December 2016. The vent is below sea level, and erosion of the ash deposits by wave or eruptive processes would allow sea water to flow into the vent again.
