Description: From Stone (1975): "Pilots from Reeve-Aleutian Airways reported on 22 May 1973 that the Akutan volcano apparently had been erupting ash and steam for several months.

"A survey of ERTS satellite data from past months revealed that Image No. 1056-21331 of 17 September 1972 showed the mountain to be essentially snow-free as contrasted with other nearby peaks at similar altitudes."
