Fourpeaked volcano (United States) - Smithsonian / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report for 27 September-3 October 2006 (New Activity / Unrest)

06:00 AM | VON: VN
Volcanic unrest continued at Fourpeaked volcano during 23-29 September. Satellite observations by scientists from the University of Maryland-Baltimore County indicate that sulfur dioxide emission was continuing. Early in the week, AVO conducted several helicopter and fixed-wing missions during which observers photographed a linear series of vents running N from the summit for about 1 km.
Some of the vents were vigorously emitting steam and other volcanic gases. Thermal measurements of up to 75°C were recorded at the vents, although steam was likely obscuring hotter areas. Adjacent glacial ice had been disrupted and showed signs of subsidence.
Airborne gas measurements taken on 23, 24, and 30 September documented high emission rates of sulfur dioxide, hydrogren sulfide, and carbon dioxide, and a distinct sulfur smell was evident up to 50 km from the summit. An AVO status report on 3 October noted that cloudy conditions had prevented visual or satellite observations, but limited seismic data now being received did not indicate significant volcanic activity.

Fourpeaked volcano (United States) - Smithsonian / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report for 20 September-26 September 2006 (New Activity / Unrest)

On the evening of 17 September the Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) received several reports of two discrete plumes rising from the Cape Douglas area, about 320 km SW of Anchorage. Retrospective analysis of data from the NEXRAD Doppler radar in King Salmon showed an unusual cloud starting at 1200 that day. The maximum cloud height determined by radar during the first hour of the event was 6 km (20,000 ft) a.s.l. ... Read all
