Pagan volcano (Mariana Islands) activity update: steaming, occasional ash emissions
Thursday Apr 12, 2012 10:05 AM | BY: T
A gas-and-steam plume extending downwind from Pagan's summit vent was observed during 30 March-6 April.
According to the Washington VAAC a pilot observed a plume containing a small amount of ash that rose to an altitude below 1.5 km (5,000 ft) a.s.l. on 7 April. Satellite imagery showed a gas-and-steam plume, with possible ash content, drifting 204 km SSW.
