ALASKA VOLCANO OBSERVATORY DAILY UPDATE U.S. Geological Survey Tuesday, March 6, 2018, 12:56 PM AKST (Tuesday, March 6, 2018, 21:56 UTC)
52°49'20" N 169°56'42" W,
Summit Elevation 5676 ft (1730 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: ADVISORY
Current Aviation Color Code: YELLOW
Unrest continues at Cleveland volcano. No significant activity was detected by seismic or infrasound sensors over the past 24 hours, but elevated surface temperatures (likely from the emission of hot gases rather than lava effusion) were observed in thermal satellite data.
Cleveland volcano is monitored with a limited real-time seismic network, which inhibits AVO's ability to detect precursory unrest that may lead to an explosive eruption. Rapid detection of an ash-producing eruption may be possible using a combination of seismic, infrasound, lightning, and satellite data.
