Pavlof volcano news & activity updates:
Thu, 27 Sep 2007, 00:08AVO reported that seismic activity at Pavlof declined markedly during
8-18 September, compared to levels recorded during the first week of
September. Seismicity was characterized by volcanic tremor, and
signals interpreted as small explosions. Based on observations of
satellite imagery, a steam plume rose to an altitude of 6.1 km (20,000
ft) a.s.l. on 12 September and multiple thermal anomalies were present
during 12-14 September. The Volcanic Alert Level remained at Watch and
the Aviation Color Code remained at Orange

Activity at Pavlov volcano continues at fluctuating levels. Judging from seismic data and visual observations - often difficult because of cloud cover -, frequent weak explosions and rockfalls are taking place and a strong thermal anomaly continues to be visible in the summit area on satellite data, indicating that the new lava dome is still growing.
Sat, 1 Sep 2007, 17:03Pavlov's eruption continues and it seems increasing. A strong eruption took place yesterday: at approximately 9:30 pm local time (AKDT) on August 31, National Weather Service observers in Cold Bay reported a substantial plume and associated lightning emanating from Pavlof Volcano reaching approximately 20,000 ft (6,000 m) above sea level.
If activity continues to increase in intensity, larger ash clouds that could affect higher-flying aircraft may be produced. The most immediate ground hazard in the vicinity of the volcano includes light ash fall on nearby communities.

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 Read more...
