Pavlof reported activity





Event Name : Pavlof 2003/3

Start:March 16, 2003 Observed

Fumarolic or hydrothermal activity: BibCard
Eruption re-assigned to another volcano: BibCard
Eruption Type:Not an eruption.

Description: From McGimsey and others (2005): "A barge operator reported seeing Pavlof volcano erupting about 10 AM AST on March 16, 2003. A check of spectrograms revealed no activity. CWSU staff was informed of the report; they had already reviewed the latest satellite imagery and saw no ash signature (the area was cloudy with a ceiling of around 3,000 ft.). AVO remote sensing specialists corroborated that there was no indication of activity. Strong fumaroles on the flank, and in the crater, of nearby Mt. Hague vent of Emmons Lake Caldera occasionally produce steam clouds that from certain vantage points appear to originate at Pavlof. A similar occurrence [at Hague] was documented in 2001 (McGimsey and others, 2005) and in 2002 (Neal and others, 2005)."
