Description: From Reeder and others (1993): "Pavlof Volcano has been quiet since August 1988 (BE no. 28). On January 5 and 6, 1990, Marsha Brown of the FAA flight service at Cold Bay observed traces of steam rising up to 100 m above the NE summit vent that was trailing to the NE. The top of the volcano was dark due to the melting of snow around the summit vent. The volcano has been pure white with snow for the winter up to this time. On March 5, several eruption plumes were observed [.]"
