Event Name : Bogoslof 1908/1This is a questionable event.
|Start:||January 1908 ± 3 Months||Observed|
In July, 1908, observers on the vessel McCulloch reported that Metcalf Cone of the Bogoslof Islands was completely gone (Jaggar, 1930). This observation suggests that there was an explosive eruption during the winter of 1907-08. Possible evidence of this eruption was witnessed by observers on the Albatross early in the year of 1908.
From Hunnicutt (1943): "The crew of the U.S.S. Albatross in 1908, while traveling off the islands, witnessed an uprising of a subterranean volcano which doubtless later added to the bulk of Bogosloff. The surface of the ocean rose in a gigantic, dome-like swelling, suggestive of a colossal soap bubble, then receded. This occurred several times and before each subsidence there was a tremendous escape of gas. Gigantic clouds of smoke and steam issued from where the water had humped itself."
