Veniaminof volcano (Alaska): weak ash emissions
mardi juin 11, 2013 11:24 | AUTEUR : T
Weak ash plume from Veniaminof (FAA webcam, annotated by Blog Culture Volcan)
Current seismic recording from Veniaminof (VNHG station, AVO)
A weak eruptive activity has started from the volcano. Since last night, weak ash emissions have appeared from the central cone of the caldera of the volcano.
The new activity is accompanied by a persistent steam plume and increasing volcanic tremor. So far there seem to be no lava flows or other significant eruptive processes.
The new ash emissions are very diluted and reach about 200-300 m height. They were first observed on the Aciation camera of Perryville from last night at around 17-18h local time. AVO who has not yet reported about the ash confirmed to Blog Culture Volcan that the plume indeed contains very small amounts of ash, which pose no problems to aviation (for now).

Veniaminof (Alaska Peninsula, USA)
: 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. ...

Pavlov (Alaska Peninsula, USA)
: Weak eruptive activity continues, producing small steam and ash plumes drifting at about 18-20,000 ft (5-6 km) altitude SSE as detected on satellite data (VAAC Anchorage). ...

Etna (Sicily, Italy)
: During a visit to the summit craters today, we could observe a new hot fumarole in the western pit of the Bocca Nuova, increased bluish degassing from a vent in the saddle between the old and new SE crater and hear deep-seated explosions inside the NE crater. ...

Volcano Calendar 2016
: We're proud to present our new volcano calendar 2016: 13 different and attractive images of volcanoes, volcanic landscapes and phenomena taken during volcano tours over the past few years.
: In the afternoon of 17 Oct, a particularly violent explosion occurred at Anak Krakatau, blasting away a portion of the southern crater rim. A similar event might have been the final trigger for the catastrophic landslide that let the cone collapse and cause a devastating tsunami on 22 Dec 2018.
Climbing Stromboli volcano
: Stromboli provides one of the most remarkable opportunities to watch volcanic eruptions from close: a natural ridge located 150 m above the active vents. A classic and all-time favorite tour by anyone interested in seeing active volcanoes!
