Pavlov volcano (Alaska Peninsula, USA) activity update

The eruption continues with lava fountaining, an active lava flow and ash emissions, accompanied by continuous seismic tremor. Aerial observations suggest that the interaction of lava and ice on the upper slope of the volcano create mud flows and pyroclastic flows.
A narrow plume of steam, ash, and gas, occasionally up to 20,000 ft. above sea level, and extending southeast from the volcano over the North Pacific Ocean was visible in satellite images yesterday. Minor to trace ash fallout could be occurring on the north, east and southeast flanks of the volcano and possibly on parts of Pavlof Bay and adjacent waters southeast of the volcano. Nearby communities have not reported any ash fall over the past 24 hours. (AVO)

MODIS hot spot data (past 7 days) for Pavlov volcano (ModVolc, Univ. Hawaii)
Friday, May 17, 2013
The eruption continues with lava fountaining at the summit that feeds a lava flow now over 100 m long and produces a continuous ash, steam, and gas plume extending downwind from the volcano for 50 to 100 km at an altitude of about 20,000 ft above sea level. This morning the cloud was carried to the southeast. Satellite images show persistent elevated surface temperatures at the summit and on the northwest flank. ... [meer...]

Thursday, May 16, 2013
The eruption continues. The volcano produces a lava flow on the northwest flank. Interaction of the lava flow and ice, producing debris flows, as well as possible explosions at the vent produce a steam-ash plume rising up to about 20,000 ft. above sea level. ... [meer...]
A new steaming lava flow at Pavlof seen by a airline pilot. Photo taken at around 7 pm, May 13.
Wednesday, May 15, 2013
Eruptive activity on 13 May at Pavlof has been confirmed. Pilot images have shown a new spatter fed lava flow extending 500 m down the N flank of the volcano. ... [meer...]
MODIS hot spot data (past 2 days) for Pavlov volcano (ModVolc, Univ. Hawaii)
Tuesday, May 14, 2013
Seismic activity has decreased today, but remains elevated. MODIS data confirm a hot spot at the summit, which could suggest a small lava flow there. [meer...]
Monday, May 13, 2013
A new eruption has probably started. AVO raised the alert level to orange, following an increase in seismic activity this morning along with the presence of an intense thermal anomaly at the summit observed in latest satellite imagery. ... [meer...]
