Veniaminof volcano (Alaska Peninsula, USA) activity update: seismic unrest
Sunday Jun 09, 2013 17:12 PM | BY: T
Current seismic recording from Veniaminof (VNHG station, AVO)
Over the past 2 days, AVO has detected gradually increasing seismic tremor beneath Veniaminof and therefore raised the Aviation Color Code to Yellow and the Volcano Alert Level to Advisory.
Clear web-camera and satellite views currently show nothing unusual at the volcano. Similar seismic activity has been associated with ash emissions at Veniaminof in the past, most recently in 2005.
Saturday, Apr 08, 2006
A pilot reported a minor eruption at Veniaminof volcano producing an ash plume of about 10,000 ft on Thursday April 6, 2006.
Tuesday, Mar 07, 2006
Seismicity at Veniaminof volcano is low and there are no indications that new eruptions have taken place since 3 March 2006. As precaution, the Alaska Volcano Observatory maintains alert level YELLOW.
Saturday, Mar 04, 2006
Mount Veniaminof volcano is getting more active: small ash emissions were observed coming from the intracaldera cone this morning (4 March 2006) from AVO webcam images. They consisted of small diffuse, low-level plumes, rising a few hundred meters (several hundred feet) above the cone, which has an elevation of 2,156 m (7,073 ft) above sea level. The ash emissions dissipated rapidly as they drifted towards the east. Ash fall is likely to be minor and should be confined to the summit caldera.
