IMAGE 168771
AVO Image

Dirty snow from ash produced during low-level explosive activity at the North Crater of Mount Cerberus at Semisopochnoi is visible in this WorldView-3 image from March 10. The deposit is patchy, likely from wind remobilization of both the ash and snow. The crater itself is steaming, producing a plume that is drifting downwind. The deposit extends up to 1.5 km (0.9 miles) from the vent, and we have observed a number of small deposits similar to this in recent weeks.
