Pavlov volcano (Alaska Peninsula, USA) activity update: lava fountaining, lava flow on NW flank

Friday May 17, 2013 10:56 AM | BY: T

MODIS hot spot data (past 7 days) for Pavlov volcano (ModVolc, Univ. Hawaii)
MODIS hot spot data (past 7 days) for Pavlov volcano (ModVolc, Univ. Hawaii)
Current seismic recording from Pavlov volcano (PVV station, AVO)
Current seismic recording from Pavlov volcano (PVV station, AVO)
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.
Seismic activity remains elevated with nearly continuous tremor recorded on the seismic network.

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. ... [more]

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. ... [more]
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. [more]
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. ... [more]
Thursday, Sep 27, 2007
AVO 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 [more]
