ALASKA VOLCANO OBSERVATORY DAILY UPDATE U.S. Geological Survey Saturday, June 9, 2018, 11:46 AM AKDT (Saturday, June 9, 2018, 19:46 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
Low-level unrest continues at Cleveland volcano. Elevated surface temperatures at the summit of the volcano were observed in satellite images over the past day. Several small earthquakes likely related to the ongoing unrest were recorded on the local stations today. No signals associated with emissions were detected in pressure sensor data.
Cleveland volcano is monitored by only two seismic stations, which restricts 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.
