AVO Image

WorldView-2 multispectral satellite image of Shishaldin Volcano acquired on January 3, 2020 at 22:22 UTC. This image was taken a few hours after an explosion, which deposited ash on the southern flanks of the volcano. Lava flows are visible in the near-infrared to the northwest (active, extending >1.6 km from vent) and northeast (inactive flow from yesterday, 1.2 km long). An ash plume is visible erupting from the summit. Dark pyroclastic flows can be seen on the western and southern flanks reaching lengths of up to 2.6 km.
