Pavlof volcano news & activity updates:
Pavlov volcano (Alaska), activity update: ash plumes
Seismic activity at Pavlof remained elevated during 22-28 August. A strong thermal anomaly was present at the summit on satellite imagery on 22, 24, 25, and 28 August; clouds inhibited observations on other
days. Based on pilot reports and calculations using satellite imagery, a steam-and-ash plume rose to an altitude between 3-5.5 km (10,000-18,000 ft) a.s.l. On 25 August, seismic events and explosions were more energetic and a signal suggesting a large lahar was noted. Plume altitudes from previous days and seismic interpretation indicated that an ash plume rose to an altitude of 6.1 km (20,000 ft) a.s.l. on 26 and 28 August. The Volcanic Alert Level remained at Watch and the Aviation Color Code remained at Orange.
