ALASKA VOLCANO OBSERVATORY DAILY UPDATE U.S. Geological Survey Monday, July 2, 2018, 1:10 PM AKDT (Monday, July 2, 2018, 21:10 UTC)
52°49'20" N 169°56'42" W,
Summit Elevation 5676 ft (1730 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: WATCH
Current Aviation Color Code: ORANGE
Unrest continues at Cleveland volcano. Elevated surface temperatures at the summit extending southwest down slope were observed in satellite data over the past day. These thermal signals are consistent with observations earlier this week of a lava flow from the summit crater. Low-level seismic activity is ongoing, but nothing unusual was observed in seismic or pressure sensor (infrasound) data over the past day.
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.
GREAT SITKIN VOLCANO
52°4'35" N 176°6'39" W,
Summit Elevation 5709 ft (1740 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: ADVISORY
Current Aviation Color Code: YELLOW
Unrest continues at Great Sitkin volcano. Seismicity remains above background levels today. Possible weakly elevated surface temperatures were observed in satellite data over the past day.
